Webinar “Introduction to BBC micro:bit”
In this webinar for primary and secondary teachers, teachers gain some basic knowledge of the BBC micro:bit, a microcomputer which has become popular recently. It aims to inspire young people to get creative and develop core skills in science, technology and engineering. The integrated sensors distinguish the micro:bit from other robotic tools. This pocket-sized codeable computer has motion detection, a built-in compass and Bluetooth technology. With the micro:bit, which is quite easy to use, classes can be both recreative and instructive. Even those who have not been involved in coding yet, can easily compute some elementary operations with Microsoft Makecode. Some primary subjects such as the origin of micro:bit, key features of it, the use of LEDs, buttons and sensors are going to be explained on this webinar. In addition, some spesific hands-on activities are going to be mentioned. STEM teachers will leave this webinar with some practical insight in how to integrate the micro:bit in their lessons.
Please be aware of your time zone, the webinar is 16:00-17:00 CET (Berlin time).
