This morning, the Raspberry Pi Foundation announced The Raspberry Pi Education Manual by a team of UK teachers from Computing at School (CAS). The manual is free and even Creative Commons licensed. The book includes chapters on Scratch and Python and will include a Java chapter soon, according to Liz Upton in a blog post on the Foundation’s blog. “There’s a group at Oracle which is currently working with us on a faster Java virtual machine (JVM) for the Pi, and once that work’s done, chapters on Greenfoot and Geogebra will also be made available – we hope that’ll be very soon.”

The manual is available in the Raspberry Pi Store also as a PDF download on the Raspberry Pi Foundation’s site.
