Micro:bit in secondary computing CY224 / A17
Transform your 11 to 14 computing curriculum to make programming interesting and exciting for all students, smoothing the transition from blocks to text-based languages.
During the first day you will use Python to programme the micro:bit; from the basics through to making music. You will transmit morse code using radio and, finally, take part in a Bit:Bot robot challenge.
This is a residential course, fees include meals and accommodation for the duration of the course.
Following this course you will:
understand how to support all learners using both blocks and Python for 11 to 14 schemes of learning
take away many ideas for using the micro:bit for programming, including physical computing
have experienced effective methods for teaching programming and managing kit in the classroom
feel empowered to develop your 11 to 14 curriculum, using the micro:bit to encourage greater uptake for 14 to 16 computer science
