High Quality, Low Cost Education with the Raspberry Pi
The Raspberry Pi Single Board Computer (SBC) family has gained popularity in diverse areas, while education remains to be the fundamental driver behind the design. Low cost kits are provided, specifically for education, by the Raspberry Pi Foundation in conjunction with Google. These kits and modifications for optimal educational outcomes, and an enriched experience will be briefly discussed. The tutorial will consist of examples of projects and code samples that can be quickly adapted for various learning situations. A hardware list or BOM, populated and optimized for cost and effective learning will be provided. The Raspberry Pi family and Arduino Family can also be used for education, as alternates, or in combination with the Raspberry Pi Zero and the differences will be highlighted and discussed. Numerous, continuously evolving web resources as well as crowdfunded hardware implementations are available, and the method of adapting them into educational settings will be briefly discussed.
