The first cycle of education on using the micro:bit completed

December 21, 2023

The workshops of the “Digital Literacy Revolution” project in Croatia were successfully held from November 20 to December 20, 2023.

The goal of these workshops was to educate 1,200 elementary school teachers, computer science teachers, and school librarians on using the micro:bit as a tool for digitally creative processing of educational content.

The workshops were conducted by project ambassadors, experienced teachers, and educators with whom IRIM has been successfully collaborating for many years. They had already distinguished themselves in the use of micro:bits and in the education of teachers and librarians in Croatia through other IRIM projects.

Through this project, we plan to hold a total of 6 educational cycles over two school years.

We have now completed the first cycle, in which we organized and held a total of 100 workshops in Croatia.

In it, we introduced participants to the micro:bit, the basics of programming and device usage, and how to use it in a digitally creative way.
