Thanks for the suggestions and advice.
This is for a library that is getting a RaspberryPi as part of an effort to create a maker-friendly environment.
They already have a computer lab with PC workstations, so no this would not be a general purpose computer.
They are still looking at ideas for main base stations, but I imagine will be staying open to other uses even when main base stations are planned and set up.
Some ideas include:
- personal RaspPi station (for Minecraft on Pi, etc.)
- tie in to projector for presentations and group classes with/about RaspPi
- group area for advanced projects such as robotics with RaspPi
What I am trying to help equip them with are better resources for things such as IS/IT considerations and other items a library might need to know to better plan for a RaspPi. These suggestions so far are great, helpful, and appreciated, but the library and myself are already aware of what a RaspPi can do. We are looking for any resources that might help a library plan better since 1. I am not a librarian or a tech with a background in libraries and 2. They are not familiar with RaspPi, including their tech department.
I'm having trouble finding any kind of mostly-all-in-one or better resource for libraries looking at RaspPi. If there isn't anything out there yet, or like I said earlier something similar to what CCOW provides for Scratch, maybe we can put something together.
