Project Pi was set up to help children, young people, and yes even adults, learn and enjoy using the Raspberry Pi.
The Raspberry Pi is a low-cost, credit card sized Linux computer that was developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation in the UK. Find out more <here>.
They are cheap – and so help solve the problem of letting kids play, tinker and experiment, with computers without parents or schools having to sacrifice their expensive laptops or PC to the cause.
The key here is removing the fear of making mistakes so that children, young people, and any grown ups hovering around, are free to tinker, hack and explore possibilities!
We think that is a good idea!
I’m an IT architect for a leading UK hosting firm in Manchester, UK. But originally I’m from the Big Sky country of Montana, USA. And I’m passionate about IT training and bridging the gaps for anyone on the margins of life!
I currently work for Living Systems. My background is in psychology, and I have been working as a psychologist within education and the community for the last ten years. I recently enjoyed taking part in an MA in Management, Learning, and Leadership from Lancaster Business school, focusing on the use of Action Research to promote curious and evolving ways of working with individuals, groups and organisations.
