Task 3: Data- Representation


Nicole Clothier▸ Task 3: Data- Representation

Last year I had a student in my mainstream class who had many disabilities, one on which included no verbal language. He was functioning at an 18mth old level so we were tied up with the decision to teach him to communicate using sign language (as this had been started outside school through his speech pathologist) or whether he would develop some simple speech. In the end (because it was getting later in the year) we decided to incorporate sign language into our classroom practice and teach it to all the students. Each day we would learn a new word/sign and we wo…

Task 3 Option 3

I have a much better understanding of binary code after completing this unit! I liked the examples of students writing their names in binary code and egs of making jewellery using black and white beads using the letter/binary decoder as per the photo below.

Mathematically, there are some clear links to building on from our base 10 understanding. I have saved many of the suggested links from the unit and many of the games are appealing yet clearly educational.


Linda Galton-Fenzi▸ Task 3: Data- Representation

Photos Photos.This activity would be suitable for year 5 or 6. It is using the binary system and QR codes. Collect some staff baby photos and some student baby photos. The teacher transcribes the names into binary and next to each name a QR code with a clue to the which photo it might be ( staff/class member or a clue about the background in the photo). The students then have to work out the name, then use the clue to help match the name with the photo. You could also divide the class into half and divide the photos, the students convert the names into binary and…


Andrew Diessel▸ Task 3: Data- Representation

I came across this game when teaching binary to a group of students. It's a fast paced activity that can help students with their mental computation and is probably more aimed towards Year 5 and 6. We found that when trying to make a number in binary, start at the highest value then add on the next value (removing the value if we went over the target).

This interactive task can also be a good way to improve the understanding of binary amongst other staff in the school.

Option 2 🙂
In Civics last year, students had to create a poster about Australian Citizenship. Their poster had to be visually appealing and not too text heavy, the design was an important component in the task, as was the content. To enable students to include all of the necessary information, they were encouraged to create a QR code which would take the viewer to a video they had created to cover the required content. It was really successful 🙂


Annie Nygh▸ Task 3: Data- Representation

My suggestion for a classroom learning activity is for Kindergarten . During the activity students colour a worksheet that has random lines and squiggles that make shapes with and without dots. When coloured the dotted shapes will reveal an image. Students would be taught that these dots represent 'on' and no dots represents 'off'. This would be linked to concept of binary numbers to demonstrate how information can be conveyed in…


Isabel Garrett▸ Task 3: Data- Representation

I would like to integrate the use of QR codes in a Science unit I will be teaching. Students will be required to propose an alternative energy source for the town. They will need to make a model of the proposed power plant and make a mock pitch of their idea to the local council. I will get the students to use QR to incorporate a range of media in their proposal. This may include video, images, text, maps etc where viewers can access information about the new power plant. I will then invite students from other classes to view each of the proposals and interact wit…
