Share with the community a way you would like to introduce data transmission in computer networks into the classroom. It could be using any of the resources in the MOOC, a resource you have found or your own idea




According to the task, I would like to introduce the way which I have been doing to transform the data into the information to my students. There are four steps into my way.

Collect the data from the net.

Thanks to my English teacher, I have many good opportunities to surf the net for my teaching data : Listening, Speaking, Reading, Writing and Grammar. Https://learnenglish.britishcouncil.org/, https://dictionary.cambridge.org/ , https://www.examenglish.com/ … are useful and familiar websites. The data are stored both in my computers and cyber environments – Google Drive, Cloud … To begin the lesson or the task, I can choose the data I need easliy.

Making the data meaningful information.

Data is raw information. In order for data to become meaningful, it needs to be transformed into information. How to process, structure or present in a context is very important.

Follow the example,

The data from https://www.examenglish.com/PTE/pte_general_level1_listening_part1.htm  will be seclected to design good listening practice.

The data packet – pictures and audio are broken down into smaller unit for questions from 1 to 10 :










Sharing the information in apps .

The content is uploaded into Google Drive and then designed for the Multiple Choice Listening Test.

The results of the test was downloaded from Google Drive and updated quickly.

How the data is collected, stored and used to make the task meaningful is critical and available.

You can have data without information, but you cannot have information without data. I strongly agree with Daniel Keys Moran in designing the lessons as well as the teaching tasks from my materials I got.
