This is Raspberry Pi, an innovative new education tool that can teach children as young as 5 how to create computer code and program, which lets them create anything from video games to music.Created in Britain by a group of men who feared the younger generation was losing the ability to control the technology mushrooming around it, Raspberry Pi has snowballed from an idea in 2006 into a movement that is taking the world by storm. With the help of UNICEF, the International Education Association, the Education Ministry and the Muna Bustros Foundation, Raspberry Pi was officially launched on Friday in the Middle East as part of the Pi For Learning program. As well as being a stimulating change for Dhour Choueir High School's students, the introduction of Raspberry Pi to the institution is also breaking new ground in the country and the wider region.Using Raspberry Pi, he added, is both cheaper and more engaging than school textbooks.
