A simple search on-line for "Arduino resources" results in "About 3,920,000 results (0.30 seconds)," but if you're just starting out and interested in getting Arduino into your classroom - this can be terribly overwhelming. So - here's a list of some of the sites I like to use.
Modkit - A new web-based graphical programming interface for Arduino looking for a little help
We often teach beginning learners that the standard 16 MHz Arduino Uno is fast... really fast. 16 MHz means 16 Million cycles per second -- or that translates to 1/16 millionths of a second per cycle. That's a mere 62.5 ns. That's fast. So, is the Arduino _really_ that fast? Let's see...
