Physical computing in the primary classroom

October 16, 2017 at 4:00PM

In order to help develop pupils’ understanding of the link between programming and making things happen on a device we will look at a range of different robotic models and explore in greater depth the highly engaging, easy to use and affordable BBC micro:bit. This will be a hands-on session and will give you the opportunity to reflect on how best to embed physical computing into your school.


Time Topic
16:00 Registration and Refreshments
16:05 Introduction to physical computing
16:30 Programming the BBC micro:bit
17:00 Using inputs and outputs
17:30 Feedback Survey and Close
