As I was finalising my last post this evening, about being unplugged from ICTs in the classroom this week due to teacher illness, I was searching for an image to compliment my post and I came across a website I’d like to share. CS UNPLUGGED: computer science without a computer. Perfectly appropriate due to my experience this week. CS UNPLUGGED is a website that promotes computer science activities without a computer. The lessons are downloadable, printable and easy to follow.
My son and I completed the Binary Numbers activity (the first in the Data related lessons) and we were engaged and enjoying the experience, even Dad joined in. You can see DJ aged 8 in the featured image above completing a code cracking activity using Binary numbers. I would suggest to my colleagues in this time of teaching and learning to consider exploring the activities offered on this website.
Best wishes for next week.
