  23. 23. WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE? Raspberry Pi A mini-computer Requires an operating system Has a micro-SD card for storage Built-in Ethernet Plug in a keyboard and monitor Can run Linux Arduino A microcontroller open-source electronics prototyping platform You build the circuits and interfaces for interaction USB port used to upload and communicate with Arduino sketches Pro Tip: If you need lower level hardware control, Arduino is better, for example driving motors, reading sensor information. If the project is complex, meaning requires TCP/IP, multi-tasking then Raspberry Pi. More complex projects might require both.

New Horizons Report for K-12: http://www.nmc.org/pdf/2013-horizon-report-k12.pdf - pg 28; image from http://goo.gl/nClQ55 From New Horizons Report: “One of the most significant aspects of 3D printing for teaching and learning is that it enables more authentic exploration of objects that may not be readily available to schools. While it has become easier for teachers and students to work with these models, some of the most compelling applications of 3D printing in K-12 come from schools and programs that involve students creating something that is all their own.”
