The MagPi - A Magazine For Raspberry Pi Users

The MagPi - A Magazine For Raspberry Pi Users | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

The third issue of The MagPi, the Raspberry Pi community’s free-to-download magazine, comes out today, and there’s more content in there than ever. Jaseman (with help from Chris “tjz” Stagg and Antiloquax’s spare Raspberry Pi) has compiled a list of Debian essentials to try on your Raspberry Pi – including more than 150 free games. The beginners’ projects for interfacing using the GPIO ports on your Raspberry Pi continue (if you’re new to The MagPi, it’s worth reading through the issues 1 and 2 first); there’s more on that robot arm, a picture tutorial on making ribbon cable, and some ideas from Meltwater (and Rosie, age 5) on introducing the Raspberry Pi to small kids. There are more C, Scratch and Python tutorials…tell you what. Rather than describe everything that’s in the magazine, I’ll leave it to you to download your own copy.

The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It’s a capable little PC which can be used for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. We want to see it being used by kids all over the world to learn programming.

Raspberry Pi: 'a great experiment'

Raspberry Pi: 'a great experiment' | eLearning tools | Scoop.it
Rory Cellan-Jones gets to grips with the Raspberry Pi with the help of computing student Isabell Long.

 

"The Raspberry Pi, a credit-card sized computer designed to encourage children to learn programming, caught the imagination of millions when it was unveiled in February.

 

Now ... the first devices are beginning to be delivered to customers.

Mine arrived in the post a few days ago, so small that it came through the letterbox.

I wondered how to set about testing it and decided to invite a teenage programmer, Isabell Long, to come and help me out."
