Here are some ways to integrate micro:bit into your educational ecosystem

Differentials and characteristics of micro:bit

Ready for use: micro:bit does not need any other equipment to be used
Radio communication: Different users can communicate with each other through their micro:bits, enabling interaction and even game creation
USB interface: Load programs directly from your computer to your micro:bit
External battery: Accompanied by a holder for two AAA batteries
Bluetooth: Communicates with smartphones and various other devices
Matrix with 25 LEDs: LEDs that allow individual programming
Buttons: Two buttons that allow interaction with the program flow
Interaction with the world: Can be connected to motors and other components from digital and analog pins
Light sensors: LEDs that detect ambient lighting
Temperature sensors: Able to read the ambient temperature
Accelerometer: That identifies and differentiates different types of movement
Magnetometer: It has a magnetic sensor that can be used as a compass

The education we seek to build is closely related to the construction of a better world and is also one of the goals of micro:bit.

The do your:bit is an annual competition involving students aged 8 to 18 from around the world, encouraging students to develop solutions that relate to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) established by the United Nations (UN) in 2015.
