On this page you will find lesson plans (in English and French), introductory videos, troubleshoots and information about the contents of our kits.
Here you can find detailed lesson plans videos for an introduction, troubleshooting and information about what we have put in our micro:bit kits. It should be a good place for teachers new to the micro:bit to get started.
Code examples, curricular links, and project ideas using Micro:Bits, Makecode blocks, and some peripherals. This website is in beta until the Feb 1-2 2019 conference and (spoiler alert) will be used in the Micro:Bit Deep Dive session. The website contains many embedded Makecode examples, so it is somewhat slow.
Binary is extremely important to the computer world. The majority of computers today store all sorts of information in binary form. This lesson helps to demonstrate how it is possible to take something that we know and translate it into a series of ons and offs.
In this lesson students will learn how information is represented in a way such that a computer can interpret and store it. When learning binary, students will have the opportunity to write codes and share them with peers as secret messages.
- Encode letters into binary
- Decode binary back to letters
- Relate the idea of storing initials on a bracelet to the idea of storing information in a computer
