ToodleBit uses the BBC Micro:Bit to combine computing, science, maths and design technology into exciting and stimulating lessons with pupils physically designing, making and coding their own gadgets.
Microsoft’s MakeCode editor is the perfect way to start programming with the BBC micro:bit. The colour-coded blocks are familiar to anyone who’s previously used Scratch, and yet powerful enough to access all the features of this tiny computer. Select the code block you require and drag it onto the workspace.
ToodleBit videos take the learner on a journey from the very basics of connecting a MicroBit to the computer and first coding steps to more complex projects such as building their own Morse Code machine or remote control buggy. The videos are designed to put the child in control of their own learning with plenty of support and extension activities.
The videos provide the specialised knowledge and language required by the Computing curriculum. ToodleBit also has unplugged lessons to help support pupils understanding of the elements that make up computational thinking.
