Teaching children to code in Lebanon with the Raspberry Pi

Eliane Metni, native of Beirut and based at the University of London’s Institute of Education leads the International Education Association, a Lebanese non-government organisation committed to global learning opportunities through ICT for Lebanon and throughout the Arab world. She has recently piloted a programme using Pis to bring ICT education to a secondary school and now her programme has been pushed forward by UNICEF to be used in Lebanon and, perhaps, in other Middle East countries where education, and in particular ICT, is lacking. You can read more about the initiative on the Guardian website. The UNICEF project is using HDMIPi, the small high-definition screen championed by Alex Eames and Cyntech and you can read more about how they got involved over on the Raspberry Pi blog.
