Just a thought having looked at the schematic, the design assumes sane output selection. While I love the concept here of getting a class straight into Arduino without having slow everybody down while you double and triple check all the wiring there are no limiting resistors on the pins intended as inputs so you can still set pinmode, press the switch and break a $70 board
While a big fan of learning by letting the smoke out I normally only stand back and watch when it’s single LEDS and such that get binned afterwards.
I’m voting for the addition of a smattering of 125 ohm resistors on the next revision for a slightly less fraught class room experience.
No public wish lists :(
