What is pi-top?


pi-top is a build-it-yourself laptop powered by the Raspberry Pi. It has a modular rail. The pi-top is designed for anyone with the hunger to expand their knowledge. Express your creativity through technology by becoming a maker and inventor. It is the easiest way to start using your Raspberry Pi.

What is the difference between pi-top and pi-topCEED?


The pi-top is a modular laptop and  pi-topCEED is a modular desktop.

pi-top fully portable and thus will allow users to deploy the Raspberry Pi in any location with the use of its exceptional 10-hour long-life battery.

The pi-topCEED is an all-in-one stationary desktop with a 14-inch screen ideal to be used as a workstation. It provides all the functionality of the pi-top at a fraction of the cost; allowing schools and enthusiasts to learn how to code, and create using the Raspberry Pi, with ease, at home or the workplace.

Both have our full pi-topOS package on them and easy frontal access to the modular rail for your hardware projects.

How do you code on pi-top?


Using pi-topOS which is bundled with our educational game CEED universe the gamer will learn how to code and create hardware as they progress through the game with the opportunity of enhancing their gaming experience with the use of DIY add-on boards that the user will be instructed on how to build, create and play with.

Do pi-top and/or pi-topCEED have an Audio System?


The pi-top range is steadily increasing.

We have the original pi-top speaker, and now we have the pi-top PULSE.

The speaker board that can be configured for left, right and mono sound via a switch on the bottom of the board.

This attaches to the rail area you will attach the raspberry pi and the pi-top hub boards in the assembly of either the pi-top or the CEED.

The pi-top PULSE has a programmable LED array with lessons available via pi-top CODER

What can you make with pi-top?


All software and hardware creations made with the Raspberry Pi are fully-compatible, and transferable, with the pi-topand the pi-topCEED when used with the proto-board.

This might include stations, flickering LED candles, gaming emulator consoles, wireless music stations and many more other fun maker projects.

Who is pi-top for?


There are no boundaries – the pi-top kit is for anyone wanting to get a greater understanding in computing and become a maker! However, we found the recommended starting age to be 8+.

Does pi-top work like a regular computer?


The pi-top and the pi-topCEED provide the office tasks of a regular desktop with the use of Libre office (compatible with Microsoft office) which allows the user to create:

  • Documents
  • Spreadsheets
  • Powerpoints

As well as the standard features of an office desktop; pi-top and pi-topCEEDallow the user to create software and hardware with ease using the following bundled features:

  • 3D Slash
  • Scratch
  • Raspberry Pi Resources
  • Minecraft Pi

All of the features above have been combined to allow creators to easily and affordably bring their creations into the world.

What is pi-topCEED?


The pi-topCEED is a ‘plug & play’ desktop powered by the Raspberry Pi with a magnetic modular rail. It’s a great tool for physical computing or learning how to code – mostly used in the STEAM education classroom.

STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. The end results are students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process. These are the innovators, educators, leaders, and learners of the 21st century!

What is a pi-topPROTO Board?


pi-topPROTO is a super-charged breadboard for your pi-top or pi-topCEED. Breadboards allow you to build and connect electronic devices to your computer via the General Purpose Input and Output Pins (GPIO). The pins provide power and allow students to write code to operate the devices remotely. They can easily run robots, make traffic light systems with LED’s, even build a heart rate monitor.

It’s the perfect tool to teach physical computing. Simply slide the pi-topPROTO into the Modular Rail and go!

Most headphones in this category meet the PARCC and Common Core testing headphone requirements.

As a quick rule of thumb, monaural headphones are ideal for listening to single source recordings such as content for language learning and development (ELL/ELD) activities, speech pathology, and lesson videos.

Stereo headphones are ideal for educational gaming, online learning, music appreciation classes and 21st century learning using mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.

It is important to know if the audio source is a mono or stereo player as well, since plugging a stereo headphone into a mono source, will result in sound only coming from one of the two earcups.

Finally,

Add an inexpensive #AvidEducation #FISHBONE adapter and prevent pin breakage in your computer device whilst using headphones!
