Data Representation


The transfer of sound, images and text is a critical element in todays society within teaching. An activity to promote all three of these are getting students to match sounds to an image, text to a sound or image to a text. This not only develops Digital Data but also Literacy. An extension of this task could be to read a narrative or story to your students and ask them to make the noise of a particular animal (a cat as an example) whenever it’s said in the narrative. Furthermore, partner/group work could involve students encoding and decoding messages to each-other. Finally, another activity might consist of learning your partners binary code and sharing it with the class as a group discussion. Starting at a foundation level and slowly building up and progressing with the students will assist with their overall confidence.
