Question 2: Share with the community a way you would like to introduce networks into the classroom to make it tangible or visible for primary students. It could be using a resource you have found or your own idea or thoughts.
In my classroom, I would introduce networks by showing them and asking them about networks that appear in our community and then also within the classroom. A video would be shown to students to help them start to transfer their thinking of networks to technological networks.
Next I would turn this into a role play of small groups of students to help in understanding the role that each part of a network; firewall, nodes, senders and receivers would have in making the network complete or incomplete.
For the end of the lesson, I would have the students draw/sketch a diagram of how a network works between computers and other technological devices and either present these to the class or hand to me.
