Description

Course Description Icon

Communicating with Hardware.

Encoding the world into a digital form.

In the previous CT4.0 series of lessons, students learned about communication and how we have come to communicate with hardware. We leaned about communication from the early human up to the modern information age in the 1960's. By the 1970's we had fully mastered communicating with hardware by harnessing electricity to represent real world concepts into a digital form.

This lesson digs into how that was possible. We know it was done but did we do that?

Students will know that we use electricity in the form of on's and off's to encode real world things into something a computer can understand.


A Summary

Minimum Grade Best for students 2nd grade and up
Complexity Level Easy
Length 20 minutes / Class
Subject Area Encoding

Target Audience

2nd Grade

This class is very high level and could easily be understood by a young audience but will challenge any middle schooler as well.


Testing?

YES.  Just like most of our micro-lessons there will be a test after this lesson.

The entire class is 20 minutes long. 15 minutes will be devoted to material mixed with tests and games. The remaining 5 minutes for testing or retesting.

You will do great. Don't worry. You can always retest again if you aren't able to achieve 80% or better the first time around.
