LSF-LOGOThis workshop introduces a playful learning technology product, littleBits. The product is quickly attracting a growing following of makers, hobbyists and schools. The products pricing means that kitting out a classroom with sufficient ‘bits’ to ensure a good experience for all students does represent a significant financial investment. This workshop welcomes participants to the platform and introduces a companion app developed by the Media Innovation Studio, UCLan as a way of onboarding users to their first experience with littleBits. Participants will get a hands on experience with a complete set of littleBits, coupled with household recyclables (similar to those seen on Blue Peter, like washing up bottles, cereal boxes, etc.) in the creation of building electronic projects without any necessary skills in this field.
