An introduction to Raspberry Pi for teachers who have Deaf Learners in their care

The Raspberry Pi is a revolutionary series of small single-board computers developed in the UK to promote teaching of basic computer science in schools.

Its mission is to make the power of computing accessible to people all over the world. Due to its low cost and compact size, it is now being harnessed to teach learners of all abilities, including those who are Deaf, computing and web design and improve their educational and employment outcomes.

Embracing Raspberry Pi means becoming part of a global community of educators and learners who are using to make computer science accessible to everyone.
