Fun with Digital Making

‘Digital making’ is a term that is often used in discussions about technology education. It is about making or creating something using digital technology and in the process learning something about how the technology works. This course introduces students to fundamental computer programming concepts required for building IoT projects. Applying their newly acquired knowledge and skills in interfacing input and output devices to a microcontroller board, and deploying microcontroller-based program to control output devices such as LED matrix, programmable button, bluetooth device, compass and accelerometer, students will build and program a microcontroller-based real life electronic project using the Micro:bit.
