3 Easy Steps for IoT Connectivity
Put a micro:bit into the SLX Wappsto:bit extension board
In the MakeCode IDE, use the Wappsto by Seluxit blocks to configure your IoT connectivity
SLX Wappsto:bit will be available in three versions. All versions will feature Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The NB-IoT version will feature NB-IoT connectivity and the NB-IoT+ product will additionally feature GPS.
NB-IoT is particularly well suited to projects that require remote data capture, for example measuring air quality at outside locations, where GPS can further enrich the data.

micro:bits are pocket-sized computer designed to inspire critical thinking and creativity in children. BBC micro:bits also enable students to make use of electronics to become citizen scientists.
micro:bit has native support for Bluetooth (BLE), allowing students to, for example, use an app to interact with their micro:bits. But getting signals and data into the cloud requires an extension board and a cloud backend.
SLX Wappsto:bits are IoT extension boards including the cloud backend and dashboard for use with the BBC micro:bit educational electronics series.
There are versions for supporting fast Bluetooth / Wi-Fi connections in classrooms as well as supporting remote, battery-optimized connectivity via NB-IoT, with the option for GPS.
