The project Class in a Case has been financed by the “FAIE”. We had been asking for 2120$ to be able to build a 10 PC classroom, and we received 2120$ !
Now we have to order the components and continue developing the project. I thought you could be interested in the bill of material for this project. It is all in french, sorry. If you really need a traduction, please send a comment.
Here are some render of what we are going to do. We are going to build 3D printed cases to hold a 7 inches screen and a raspberry pi. The raspberry pi will be connected to a “server” (which is a good laptop in our case) using a switch. This way the server will be able to give some of its calculating power to the pis to improve their performance and give a better user experience.
The raspberry will be running edubuntu 14.04 using LTSP (check out Pinet project if you want to build your own raspberry pi classroom).
