- What other interesting examples of codes from history or the modern-day (digital or non-digital) can you find to inspire or support a lesson about encoding and decoding messages?
Another interesting examples of codes from history is Morse Code.
- Morse code is a method used in telecommunication to encode text characters as standardized sequences of two different signal durations, called dots and dashes, or dits and dahs. Morse code is named after Samuel Morse, one of the inventors of the telegraph.
It would be a great way to get students to convert a plain text message to an encrypted message (ciphertext) and vice versa (decryption).
