Instructor-Led Classroom Adult Training in Malaysia - Learn New Skills to Enhance Your Employability from our HDRF Approved Courses

Micro:bit Training for Beginners

The micro:bit is an educational and creative tool to encourage young people (children and adults) to get actively involved in writing software for computers. It can help give young people the knowledge and skills to move from being consumers of digital information, to being designers and creators of new tools to enhance learning, to solve problems or just to have fun, enabling them to exemplify the spirit of innovation and towards building a Smart Nation in the 21st Century.

The course has a unique mix of introductory notes and fun challenges that will get the learners programming the micro:bit in no time. The Trainer explains Blockly and programming concepts behind the code. Best of all, the learners will use the micro:bit simulator to learn, explore what the micro:bit can do, or polish their programs before using them on a real micro:bit.

This course demystifies the tech and explains how to make the most of the micro:bit. Each participant will get a micro:bit to learn about the hardware and how to program it using the block editor (visual programming). No coding or technical experience needed – this course is suitable for everyone.
