Introducing LittleBits

LittleBits makes it easy for both teachers and students to engage in STEAM by using a universal, 21st-century language: electronic building blocks We are surrounded by technology every day and yet have little idea how it works or how to create with it littleBits changes that.

The intuitive, color-coded BitsTM each have a speci c function (ie. motion, lights, sound, sensors, internet connectivity), and all the Bits snap together with magnets to make larger circuits Building circuits is simple and intuitive, allowing students to create powerful, sophisticated electronics in a matter of seconds With an ever-expanding library of Bits, educators and students can grow their collection and engage in increasingly complex projects as their understanding of the system and Bits grows.

A global community of educators is using littleBits to ignite their students’ curiosity and engage them in active inquiry and problem solving. The exibility and adaptability of the Bits mean students of all ages and abilities can use them to create very simple or very complex inventions Both novice and experienced educators use littleBits as a cross- curricular, multisensory tool to reach students through multiple learning modalitie

How are LittleBits used?

In addition to being used across all grade levels, littleBits can also be used across a variety of formal and informal learning environments In the classroom, educators use littleBits to supplement and enhance their existing curriculum, or often as part of a larger project-based unit. The open-ended design and real-world application of littleBits make it a natural t for any project-based learning curriculum littleBits can be used as a material to enhance cross-curricular projects By incorporating Bits into larger projects and assessments (for example, a diorama, poster, etc.), students are able to add another level of creativity and interactivity to their projects
