Last year a group of UK teachers started working on a Creative Commons
licensed teaching manual for the Raspberry Pi. That work has produced
the Raspberry Pi Education Manual which is available at the Pi Store
or here as a PDF. From Raspberry Pi: "The manual is released under a
Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 unported
licence, which is a complicated way of saying that it’s free for you
to download, copy, adapt and use – you just can’t sell it. You’ll find
chapters here on Scratch, Python, interfacing, and the command line.
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."
