HSC Advice on Assessment How to put together interesting, differentiated and rigourous assessment for Stage 6
  Primary and Stage 4 Digital Technologies Exciting students with Microbits

This session will address the best ways of integrating Microbits to understand and anticipate issues that students will have, and to explore the ways that they can use a Microbit to make decisions and action responses to sampled environmental data.

Teachers of years 3-8 are the target for this session, and, while no prior experience is assumed, existing users of Microbits will gain insights into how children can benefit from their use. Looking at the problem definition and solution development process, including the block-based coding environment of the Microbit, will lead to a lowering of frustration and heightening of excitement.
