Hosted by #MIEExpert Stephen Richards

Introducing a number of unusual, small, inexpensive, battery powered computing devices called BBC micro:bits into subjects. These are not computers in the classical sense, rather they are platforms that can be programmed to measure environmental factors such as temperature, direction and movement and respond to these in various ways.

  • Introducing Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert Stephen Richards
  • The focus will not be on using devices but on teaching and learning in the subject and using devices to support learning and boost engagement where and when it might be appropriate.
  • How to utilise micro:bits in your own classroom
  • Q & A
