General Description

The Digital Technologies Curriculum is anchored in computational thinking, real world problem solving and design. The ultimate tool that brings all of these concepts together is the BBC micro:bit, a programmable standalone computer that is smaller than a credit card and comes with sensors as well as connectivity. In this workshop you will learn the basics of programming the BBC micro:bit with both block code and Python and then apply these basics to several open ended projects. At the end you will go home with a semester’s worth (several hundred pages) of micro:bit project based curriculum that you can do with your students.
