A complete experiential classroom learning solution for schools to make visualization easier for complex theoretical concepts.
Raspbian, Linux and Hardware Lab
What’s a Raspberry Pi?
A Raspberry Pi is a small, inexpensive credit-card sized computer that was developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation. One of their goals was to make computing accessible to advance the education of adults and children, particularly in the fields of computing and computer science.
Because the Pi is intended to be cost-effective, it normally ships without any accessories and you may have to do the initial setup yourself.
Raspbian, Linux and Hardware Lab for Schools
Setting up a computer lab can quickly become very expensive. Computers, monitors, keyboards, cables, switches, etc. need to be purchased in order to have a reliable computer room that is often used later on. Especially small schools and clubs, which only have small budgets, are barely or poorly equipped in this respect. Statistically, even in developing countries and less prosperous parts of the world (it’s the bigger part!), there are often several hundred students sharing a single computer – if at all. That is why I would like to share an idea today how to set up a complete computer lab for relatively little money.
What Raspbian, Linux and Hardware Lab Consists of?
For most of the things that students do in a computer room today, they usually only need a browser and possibly an office suite. You don’t need the latest powerful hardware. A Raspberry Pi or used computers are quite sufficient.
a server: this can be a 3-7 years old computer with a larger disk (approx. 15-20GB per computer)
Router (if not already installed)
Switch used (Gigabit)
Raspberry Pi 3 (Starterkit)
screen (usually already available)
Socket strips, network cable
Raspbian, Linux and Hardware lab consists of different STEM learning products for teachers & students.
Especially for the Raspberry Pi there are different projects, which make the administration of the computers very easy and also very low maintenance. The PiNet project has been around for some time and was developed especially for schools. It offers central user and memory management, i. e. the kids can log on to any computer and access their data from there.
For Teachers, the innovation lab provides teaching aid, a dedicated mobile app, a teacher’s training program, etc.
For Students, the innovation lab provides practice sheets, Science DIY kit, assessment, and 13x 7 support and guidance
Why Raspbian, Linux and Hardware lab is a Good Choice for you?
If you would like others to use the computer lab, the technical hurdles must be very small. On the other hand, the system itself must be easy to manage without having to spend several hours per week.
These are the (minimum) requirements:
easy to use
quickly establish a target condition
short start times
no viruses etc.
How Does Raspbian, Linux and Hardware Lab Work?
Raspberry Pi Foundation released a similar project: PiServer. It also focuses on schools, but not only. Here too, users and storage can be managed centrally. The Raspberry Pis also start over the network and do not require an SD card.
Alternatively, you can also set up a Raspberry Pi the way you want and then distribute this image to the other computers. A central Samba server is used to store the work results.
How to Set Up a Raspbian, Linux and Hardware Lab at School?
If a school is interested in setting up Raspbian, Linux and Hardware lab then they can write to us at [email protected] for more information about the cost or give us a call at ********** for more details regarding the set-up of an Raspbian, Linux and Hardware Lab.
At present, the Raspbian, Linux and Hardware lab is designed only for the students of Class 6th to 10th.
What Type of Benefits Raspbian, Linux and Hardware Lab Offers to Students?
So far, the children have loved it so much that going to the computer lab is seen as a reward: children will perform tasks like homework faster so that they can have more time in the lab.
In the lab, we have 2 children to each computer. Pairing is a great way to have children engaged in an activity and share knowledge between themselves. By having the children pair up on tasks, we find they are usually more motivated and can bounce ideas off each other.
In the best case scenario, a less knowledgeable learner may be paired up with one that is slightly more knowledgeable, and such that the former is designated “driver”. This puts the more knowledgeable learner in a unique position to instruct, or share their knowledge and collaborate to complete the task. There may be some frustration initially, but the idea is to meet the goals collaboratively rather than competitively.
So you have learned about the benefits of opting for Raspbian, Linux and Hardware lab.
