Even if you have just one computer, I still think there are some great things you can do.
What’s really helpful though is if you have access to a data projector so that you can easily share your screen with the whole class and because we’re going to be talking about music websites and software, you’ll also need to be able to plug into speakers so that your students can hear everything clearly.
If you don’t have access to a data projector to allow your entire class to see your screen, you might like to try some of these ideas as one rotational activity for students working individually or in groups.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
