What is Pi Academy?
By Audrey Drew
I had read about Raspberry Pi some time ago, and as a former Ed Tech Collaborator, we had two Raspberry Pi laptops in our playground equipment. The Raspberry Pi laptops we used to show others had just a breadboard, power supply, and built in monitor. It was interesting and you could access the internet and that was about all we showed others. The biggest selling point was that you could build a computer for under $100. That sounded great! However, little did I know at the time, that there was so much more you could do with a few Raspberry Pi components, a keyboard and a used monitor/tablet. This past April I went back to school librarianship and started planning how to build my makerspace and library projects. Raspberry Pi seemed like it might be a good addition to what I already had available for my students.
