The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card-sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It is a capable little computer which can be used in electronics projects, and for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word processing, browsing the internet, and playing games. It also plays high-definition video. We want to see it being used by adults and children all over the world to learn programming and digital making.
It is important for children to learn programming because they should be active producers rather than passive consumers of technology. Children can use technology to shape their world and to solve problems that they or their community may face. And by problems, we don't just mean problems in the field of computer science, but also in art, music, storytelling, and lots of other areas, as we'll show throughout this course. Through programming, children also learn and develop computational thinking skills, such as logical thinking; expressing a task in a clear, precise way; breaking down a problem into components and tackling them one at a time; resilience through spotting and fixing problems; and collaboration, working together and supporting each other. Programming is a great way to develop these skills. And they're also useful life skills for school, hobbies, and future careers.
