Discovering Digital Making

Making the best of Digital Making

Every day this May, we’re bringing you another great little reason to head to #exabytes17. While the 7th of July might seem quite a way off, we think now’s the best time to start thinking about arranging cover to be released on the day itself.

Covering a huge variety of topics, Digital Making is a popular topic when edtech is discussed, and it’s one of the key areas that we’ll be covering at #exabytes17. In short, Digital Making is all about real-world applications for Computing, ranging from simple programs designed for devices like the BBC micro:bit to more complicated creations built around Raspberry Pi, robotics and far more.

Many of the attendees and presenters at #exabytes this year have a lot of experience in the Digital Making scene, so it’s no huge surprise that a lot of the suggested sessions attendees are currently voting on cover various aspects of the field - expect a lot of sessions throughout the day to look at various aspects of integrating Digital Making with Computing classes.

Because #exabytes has a lot of hands-on sessions rather than just talks, you’ll get the chance to directly explore some great ideas and possibilities connected to Digital Making. Last year, for instance, sessions included sessions on micro:bit, Sonic Pi, robotics, and far more.
