I am looking for technical educators willing to use LiV Pi for teaching general Linux and software programming skills.
LiV Pi is a Raspberry Pi, open source, indoor air quality monitor: http://www.livpi.com/
LiV Pi is more than an internet connected device. It is also a great learning tool: building LiV Pi means setting up a Linux device (IP addresses, testing sensors and hardware clock, configuring Instant Messaging, email reporting, adding some custom Python code, configuring channels on various IoT platforms, etc…)
I recently started using LiV Pi to teach general concepts about computer architecture, hardware, sensors, software stack, kernel, multitasking, networking, etc…
I am interested to get in touch with educators who would like to use LiV Pi in their class.
I would be happy to get in touch with some maker/hacker spaces offering Linux and Python classes to local communities.
I think LiV Pi could make a good learning tool for vocational training and I would be interested to find out any opinions on this.
I have put together a draft about the possible structure of a LiV Pi Workshop. This is just a proposal. I think the instructor of such a workshop should design his own format that best addresses the needs of the students.
Please let me know if you are interested in this.
