With the release of the Raspberry Pi 3rd generation computer, this credit-card sized computer has come into its own. A flourishing open source community has already discovered many impressive ways to utilize this simple computer which retails for about $30 USD. They can be turned into mobile phones; they can be turned into servers; they can be connected into a peer-to-peer wireless network; they can drive robotics; they can be hand-held computers which support an increasing number of operating systems; they can be daisy-chained together to cheaply ramp up processing power--but yet they are simple and inexpensive enough that they can be used to teach children computing, digital electronics, robotics, and other elements of technology at an early age.

This presentation will:

Explain the Pi's features that make it such a flexible tool;

Examine some of the creative ways the Raspberry Pi is already being put to use;

Guide the audience in examining their own ICT4D projects and consider how this incredible little board can help them achieve their goals inexpensively--no matter what their mission may be.
