This smart little device is being developed and distributed by the BBC with 29 other partners and one million 11-year old school children will be receiving them for free in January. Teachers of Year 7 children will receive them in December, and this event was the first road show in the country to train lead teachers in how the BBC micro:bit can be used by children in school to learn programming skills in an engaging and creative way. Since the first event at King's College London, the BBC micro:bit road show has travelled to Newcastle, Southampton, Manchester and other venues to begin to train other teachers. The intention is that the teachers trained at road shows can then go on to train other teachers. The training and materials were provided by Microsoft and other materials will roll out shortly.
