I think that the Raspberry Pi is one of the most compelling technologies that we have experienced in this course.

The technology was created to help students learn programming easily and cheaply. The price starts at $25 which is amazing considering what you get. RasPi-box

In the class, we connected the Raspberry Pi to a monitor and keyboard to see how it works. RasPi-connections

The Pi took a while to start up but, once it was running, we were presented with an interface that wasn’t too far from a regular computer. I feel that this would make it an easy entry point for students learning code to have a familiar interface to deal with.
