Raspberry Pi is a mini size computer in shape of an ID card that can serve as plugs into your TV and keyboard. It comes equipped with a SD card that can used to install data. I used Raspberry Pi for my digital electronics project. It consisted of using Raspberry Pi to create an alarm system for your mobile phone that can be used for security.

Raspberry Pi can be used for many things that our home computers and iPads are currently do. You can use it for spreadsheets, word-processing and even games with high definition game display. It’s important that we start introducing this sort of educational tools to students to engage them and teach them about programming. Raspberry Pi is a very useful educational tool that students can learn in developing their problem solving skills. Though it is an inexpensive product, it offers many benefits for students.
