QTS-Unit 3- Question 2


This is the picture tell about coding:

What other interesting examples of codes from history or the modern-day (digital or non-digital) can you find to inspire or support a lesson about encoding and decoding messages?

Some examples of codes from history or the modern day that are:

– binary code

– encoding and decoding words (letter-sound relationships in reading)

– ciphers

– morse code

– barcodes

– Braille and so much more.

In Vietnam, Morse code is used as a game for students when organizing the outdoor camping. It is a team game. There are number of codes that the organizer will set up at different stations. The task of each team is to decode at each station when the organizer encodes through the sound signals. Which team decode and find the code fastest and correctly will win the game.

A way that teachers and students could utilise this in the classroom and support their learning for encoding and decoding messages would be to have students do ‘Crack the Code Puzzles.’ By doing these types of puzzles, students build their critical thinking and problem solving skills by matching the symbols to their appropriate letter to decode the message. This is a fun and engaging way that students can build their problem solving and critical thinking skills, as well as learn about information safety and security.
