:: Getting started with BBC Micro:Bits in primary computing ::
Outline
The BBC Micro:Bit is a credit-card sized computer that can be programmed by pupils as part of the computing curriculum. Whilst originally aimed at pupils in Year 7, this device is gaining popularity in primary classrooms because it is easy to use, simple to set up and inexpensive. In this half-day course delegates will have hands-on experience of programming a Micro:Bit. Delegates will explore a range of fun activities that meet many of the computing curriculum requirements, which they can take back to use in the classroom with their own pupils.
Outcomes:
By attending the course, participants will:
  • learn about how Micro:Bits can be used to support the primary computing curriculum
  • try out some programming activities that they could use with their own pupils
  • write programs that use sequence, selection, variables and input/output
  • Explore this technology in a fun, hands-on way
