This presentation is one of a series aimed at supporting teachers wanting to introduce micro:bit programming into their lessons. The presentation is authored in a way to mimic the use of the block editors with a step by step tutorial while freeing the teacher to lead discussion. Each presentation contains linked questions to deepen learning, challenges for pupils to adapt the code and an embedded video to illustrate the microbit output.
The full PowerPoint presentation is available together with a link to a YouTube video to help the teacher familiarise themselves with the presentation sequence.
