What is a Micro:bit?
The BBC micro:bit is a small computing device used for various applications, from simple code experiments to more complex projects. It’s a great tool for getting students interested in coding, and it’s even easier to start. The problem? They’re often left lying in the cupboard because teachers don’t realise how easy they can be to implement into lessons.
Where can I find Micro:bit resources?
One of the great things about the micro:bit is that it’s completely open-source, meaning there are no licensing fees or restrictions on what you can do with it. You can find all of the documentation and resources you need to get started on the micro:bit website.
How can I use Micro:bit in the classroom?
If you’re interested in getting started with Micro:bits, why not tune into our sessions on the 3rd and 4th of November, where we run through the basics and show you how to do effective but simple tasks with your class. First, we’ll teach you and your class how to make your own stopwatch, then we’ll teach you how to make your own step counter!
You can follow our lesson live or catch up on demand and deliver it to your class at a later date.
