The micro:bit is a powerful tool for learning computing, from hardware and networking through to programming and physical computing. This CPD, led by highly-experienced computer science teachers, will help you maximise the impact of the micro:bit on student learning. You will learn how to fully integrate the device into an engaging curriculum that provides opportunities for all. You will also find out which are the most useful tools and add-ons for the micro:bit, saving you money and time.
Participants will take away devices and additional components to repeat the activities back in the classroom.
The day will consist of hands-on coding workshops, including:
• using the latest tools to program the micro:bit
• ideas for simple activities using just the micro:bit
• making the micro:bit interact with the world around us
• making music on the micro:bit
• communicating between micro:bits
