Event description
The BBC micro:bit (microbit.org) is a mini-computer that can be programmed to do amazing things!

About this event

This workshop is intended to prepare you to teach our Making Music with micro:bit lesson plan. Teach it during CLC Week (Dec. 6-10) to join thousands of educators across Canada in a national teach-along that will awaken your students’ imaginations, ambitions and wonder.

In this workshop, we'll create micro:bit versions of our favourite tunes using MakeCode’s block-based programming language, all while applying key coding concepts like sequence, events, conditional statements, functions, etc. Then, we'll dig into a pre-made, self-directed unit you can leverage with your own students that includes options for scaffolding from block-based languages to text-based languages like Python and JavaScript.

*You do not need a micro:bit to participate in this session.

This session may be applied to grades 4-6.
