Online course for teachers (to be followed live or deferred) accompanied by the paper manual "Unofficial Guide to LittleBits".

We wake up imagination, creativity, invention, and imagination to create lesson plans that can be personalized at school or in extracurricular lessons.

Let's find out how the Little Bits kit can help us with the STEAM materials thanks to the technique of storytelling, developing here the classic fable of Aesop "The donkey that brought salt". We will be able to translate the famous fairy tale into technology thanks to this versatile kit used to support many school subjects.

As a gift, you will receive our "Unofficial LittleBits Guide" at home with lots of ideas ready to use in the classroom.
