The Raspberry Pi is an affordable mini-computer. The Raspberry Pi can be used to teach programming using such languages as Scratch, and Python. The minicomputer allows for students to do physical computing and can build a robot, weather station, or just to program a blinking LED light. The projects are endless. The physical computing (wiring) is not difficult.
By the conclusion of the session, participants will be able to:
1.) Describe how the Raspberry Pi can be used in the classroom to teach the Common Core Math Curriculum.
2.) Have an understanding of the pre-installed applications on the Raspberry Pi and how they can be used to engage students.
3.) Using the Sonic Pi application to teach programming, and math, all while the students make music.
