The Raspberry Pi is a $36 computer currently transforming practice in schools around the world. Google donated 15 thousand of these to UK schools. This TASITE workshop (held in three regional locations and facilitated by experienced educators) will provide an opportunity for Tasmanian teachers to work with the Raspberry Pi and see how it supports learning in the Digital Technologies subject.

Looking for a way to address the programming aspects of the upcoming Australian Curriculum Digital Technologies subject? Simple programming using the affordable Raspberry Pi device is an excellent way to approach this area.
