Product Description
Use the BBC Microbit website to teach your stucdents how to code!! Excellent STEM activities. www.microbit.org

Buy some real life microbits for your classroom to make you lessons come to life.

Lesson can be done with and without physical microbits.

Learn how to control a blinking LED. We will be learning how to create a blinking app using forever as well as simple commands, such as plot, unplot and pause.

What the teacher needs to know / QuickStart Computing Glossary

Program: A stored set of instructions encoded in a language understood by the computer that does some form of computation, processing input and/or stored data to generate output.

Algorithm: An unambiguous set of rules or a precise step-by-step guide to solve a problem or achieve a particular objective. The guided tutorial follows a algorithm and is a precise step-by-step guide to solve a problem

Loop: A block of code repeated automatically under the program’s control. The blink program introduces Forever. The forever loop repeats code in the background forever.

Command: An instruction for the computer to execute, written in a particular programming language.

Objectives
learn how to turn on LED lights on the LED screen
learn how to turn off LED lights on the LED screen
