Hi, I was hoping to use Microbit with Scratch on my school computers, but it turns out they don't have bluetooth installed (or at least, there's no sign of a setting for it). Not particularly surprising for desktop machines - what's much more surprising to me is that connecting with Scratch seems to require it? Why is that? Are there technical reasons why just using the USB connection can't work?
Thanks, minor-edit. Very disappointing that I won't be able to use this at school for the foreseeable future, but I do take your point.
FYI: You can install a Bluetooth USB dongle to a desktop machine.
