Description: 

Learning through the Raspberry PI
Project Overview:
It is a pilot e-learning programme, which will be delivered to students ages 10 - 18 during a six-week summer camp for youth at three locations in Beirut and Mount Lebanon.  Students will be grouped by age such that each section contains students within 3 years of each other.  Each day will consist of two sessions with students attending either the morning or afternoon session.
Pi For Learning represents an e-learning programme delivered both offline and via small computer labs (1 - 10 work stations) with three learning tracks dedicated to students outcomes and one track focused on educator and Field Partner training and support.  The student tracks will focus on basicnumeracy utilizing KA Lite, an offline curriculum platform that allows educators to curate Khan Academy curriculum content for offline delivery.  It is important to note that the system will be optimized for offline delivery so that it can function as a curriculum content and continuing education delivery tool without the need for continuous internet connectivity.  Students will also receive an intensive introduction to computer science and coding utilizing Scratch, a visual programming teaching tool for kids developed by the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at MIT.
