In this paper authors present the results of the research of the opportunities for teaching and learning the coding skills and acquiring digital competences in the primary, secondary and higher education using the computer platform consisting of Raspberry Pi 3 computer, operating system Raspbian and various desktop and server applications. This computer platform is special because of its price which is only US$ 35 and because of its operating system and applications which are often free and open source software and often free of charge. The free software enables its users freedom to run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve the software.

The authors research and evaluate the possibilities of this computer platform for teaching and learning using the desktop applications for coding, mathematics, writing, spreadsheet, database, presenting, drawing, image and sound editing, web applications, and even for running the server applications which are applicable in the education such as content management systems and learning management systems.

The research results show that this computer platform meets all the necessary minimum requirements for successful teaching and learning the coding skills and acquiring digital competences.
