Making with Micro:bit
Douglas Kiang & Mary R. Kiang
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
This is an introduction to coding and computer science by way of making and design, using the revolutionary new micro:bit microcontroller and Microsoft's easy and powerful MakeCode block-based coding environment. It is a project-based curriculum with a maker philosophy at its core; the idea is that by making physical objects, kids create a context for learning the coding and computer science concepts. The authors, both experienced classroom teachers, offer lots of helpful tips and suggestions for leading and assessing project-based learning, illustrated throughout with whimsical original illustrations and examples of real student work. This book is an invaluable resource for anyone looking for inspiring maker projects that teach coding and creativity in equal measure.
