Second education cycle: elementary school teachers and librarians explored the potential of the micro:bit

February 19, 2024

We are pleased to announce the successful completion of the second educational cycle within our project, this time specially designed for elementary school teachers and librarians.

From January 29 to February 15, we organized a total of 100 workshops across Croatia, aiming to explore innovative methods of learning and teaching using the micro:bit.

During this cycle, we focused on the micro:bit as a powerful didactic tool that can enrich the teaching process. Through practical examples, we demonstrated how the micro:bit can be integrated into six subjects of elementary education, emphasizing its potential in creating interactive and engaged learning.

Our workshops were an opportunity for teachers to familiarize themselves with different ways the micro:bit can stimulate creativity and innovation in the classroom, and how it can be used to develop students’ digital competencies.

We thank all participants who are part of this project and who, through their effort and dedication, contribute to the development of digital literacy in our education system.

We also announce the third cycle of education, which is planned for computer science teachers and will take place during April 2024. This cycle will further expand the range of knowledge and skills necessary for innovative use of technology in education.
