نبذة عن المقرر

Arm’s first professional development course introduces you to the core elements of physical computing. This includes common Arm-based hardware platforms such as Arduino, Raspberry Pi and micro:bit, as well as the learning theories and concepts that underpin a Project-Based Learning pedagogy. The course helps you transform your approach to teaching Computer Science in the classroom, sharing best practice and practical guides to give all learners the opportunity to develop and practice a broad range of STEM skills.

The course explores how physical computing devices can enable educators to apply a constructionist approach to computing in the classroom, using real-world contexts to engage and inspire learners to be creative with technology.
