From the beginning, I never wanted to just give out 150 Micro:bits to Year 7s and hope good things would happen. Whether it’s staff or students, there has to be a strategy to engage people and build capacity. This is ours…
There were no Micro:bits after the official training. We bought 6 code bugs and Y8 Digital Leaders had their first taste of online coding and downloading hex files onto devices.
They did a tremendous job of showing Year 6s at the Opening Evening too.
We then brought in keen Year 7s through the Code Club, with peer training:

Title – “How Digital Leaders run cracking coding Clubs”
Description – with so much change within Computing at present, a key requirement is to build capacity for learning programming. Y9 LLS DLs will talk about setting up Raspberry Pi’s and using them for Y9 Code Club and then in lessons. Y7 LLS DLs to talk about setting up Y7 Code Club with the approach of the BBC Microbit. They will also mention Makewaves ( 2016 BETT winner for ICT Innovator of the Year) and DL #openbadges.

Seeing as LLS Year 8 Digital Leaders welcome the Y7s tomorrow to try out Code Bugs, I thought I would start a post explaining our progress which will culminate in a talk at BETT16 in the main arena.
