This is a sample course for the Educators. Must have school email address!
The Micro:bit is small micro-controller board designed by the BBC for use in computer education in the UK. Study, conducted after they distributed the Micro:bit to year 7 students in the UK, reveals a great deal of improvement in their motivation, participation in STEM subjects and consequently the knowledge level in hands-on learning.
The Micro:bit hardware is the size of a business card and conveniently houses LED matrix, temperature and light sensors, buttons, accelerometer, magnetic compass and Bluetooth communication modules. However, the Grove Inventor Kit extends a Micro:bit's capabilities by addition of sensors, speaker and display devices and let you create projects mimicking real-life systems.
Course is ideal for:
- Educator (Year 5 – 10)
- having prior introduction to programming, microcontrollers or electronics
- Hardware - Micro:bit board with USB cable
- Computer with internet connectivity
This course is designed to provide you a hands-on learning with Micro:bit. After completing this course, a participant would be able to:
- Familiarize themselves with Micro:bit hardware components/features (display, input and sensors)
- Comprehend the working principles of various sensors available with Micro:bit
- Create program using online Block Editor software and test them online
- Program the Micro:bit with code created online to make meaningful real-life applications
In this beginner level course on mBot, the participants will learn about:
- Micro:bit overview - Hardware features, Programming tools and procedure
- Displaying text and numbers on Micro:bit LED matrix
- Detecting button press events as user input
- Measurement of light and temperature using on-board sensors
- Application of available math and logical operators
- Creating applications using accelerometer
- Creating applications using magnetic compass
- Other project ideas…

Microbits online course
Have the item. Found your course. But as is the life of a Digital Devices teacher...its in the queue. Hoping to start the course this weekend. Real life application is what I am after for lesson plans next year with Yr 3 to 6. Note that is listed in your course objectives. Question for you....why just Victoria Curriculum??? What happened to NSW?? Yes I am bias but hoping that there will be similar outcomes that can be connected between States.
