22 September 11:00 – 11:45, Live Code Along with micro:bit

Code Along with Micro:Bit during Scottish Learning Festival 22′ to create an emotion badge that expresses how you feel in sounds as well as pictures.

To celebrate the roll out of 39,000 micro:bits in primary and secondary schools across Scotland we are running this live code along during the Scottish Learning Festival.

You will learn how to use the new micro:bit’s built-in sounds as outputs to add personality and expression to your projects.

There is no need to have a micro:bit for every learner as you can use the micro:bit simulator on the makecode website. It is also preferable to have learners working in pairs or small groups.

This code along is for First to Third level learners and will take part within the Curriculum Live Team channel in Glow. The teacher/educator will have to log into Glow to display the Code Along to the class.
