Hello, my name is Fabio Scoppetta and work with IT for 17 years. Last year I bought the Raspberry Pi 2 and really enjoyed it. And I had an idea to teach basics in the Raspberry Pi in poor regions in São Paulo Brazil.
My idea is to offer free basic course Raspberry PI for young people who have not yet college, but they are studying.
The issues that would teach students would be:
1- Installing Raspian using the Epiphany, Claws Mail, LibreOffice ...
2 Fundamentals linux basic commands, directories, permissions, saw, logs, grub kernel ..
3 How to create a retro video game with Retropie
4 Introduction to creating sites with Wordpress.
And I have some questions:
a) I wonder if you already have some teaching project in Brazil?
b) You will have Picademy in Brazil?
c) I need to mandatorily participate in the Picademy to teach about Raspberry Pi.
d) I do not know if you know Brazil is in crisis and this high Dollar against the Brazilian Real. 1 US$ = R$ 3,6 approximately. Is there any way that I can buy the Raspberry PI (I need 04 at first) with reduced cost for the courses? As I go forward on the project, I will try some sponsors for students win a Rpi each. But here this is not easy.
Sorry the many questions!
