If you’re interested in learning more about the micro:bit mini PC or teaching children how easily it can be programmed to carry out a wide variety of applications. You may be interested in a new Touch Logic Control developed by James Caska. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the QuickStarter system which is launched via Kickstarter this week and is available for €15 or roughly £13 as a firmware release that will run on the micro:bit mini PC singleboard computer.
James explains more about the inspiration behind the QuickStarter TLC and lessons. “Like most digital natives these days, my 12 year old son and 11 year old daughter are fully immersed in the digital world of games, YouTube and the rest. As parents we are constantly trying to balance this with real world activities, sports, adventures, self learning. This is one of the reasons I created TLC – Touch Logic Control. As a way to teach my own children something about programming in a way that’s easy and visual enough to compete with their media rich environments yet powerful enough to be able to build practical projects.”
