COVID 19 FAQs

We can’t wait to get back into schools, delivering our sessions across the UK. The way we deliver our sessions hasn’t changed too much! For the foreseeable future we do require that we have a member of your teaching staff available to help students that might get stuck in order to minimise our contact with the students and shared equipment. For the BBC micro:bit Workshops, in the short-term we won’t be bringing shared micro:bits into schools, and – instead – we’ll be using the digital micro:bit emulator (we’ll bring a micro:bit with us so the students can see the projects running).

We can deliver all of our sessions remotely using the platform we have developed. This online platform works across Windows PCs, Macs, Chromebooks and even tablets. We can deliver our workshop live, and your pupils can safely ask questions and request support.

All that is required in the classroom is a laptop hooked up to a large screen and an internet connection. We can deliver the content live to the entire class, and then individual students can securely send us questions or request support (and the class teacher will see all messages too). Our platform also integrates with Microsoft Teams, Skype, Zoom and G Suite so if your school policy requires us to use one of those services, we can do so.

The cost for these sessions is the same as the in-school workshops, minus travel expenses.

All of our workshop facilitators work as programmers or function in app and game design and development in some capacity. We are all DBS checked, and we can all provide testimonials from the schools we have worked with page. That said, we are not qualified teachers, and we would – ideally – have the pupil’s regular teacher, or another member of the teaching staff, in with us to assist with any issues the pupils may have. It’s also a great opportunity for your teachers to learn some programming skills and the teachers we’ve worked with previously have all said how valuable the workshop was in developing their own knowledge!

You can book online at https://codecreated.com/book. Or give us a call on 0845 299 3874.

We will bring equipment we need to run our workshops with us, such as BBC micro:bits.

All we require is a large screen (television screen, interactive whiteboard, or projector and screen, for example) which we can hook our laptop up to for the students to follow along with the coding tutorials.

Your pupils will need use of your desktop PCs, laptops, or Chromebooks for the session (running a modern web browser – preferably Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge). It would be great if they could have one each, but if not then one computer between two will work. We can run some of our workshops on tablets such as iPads, but please call us before booking to discuss.
