Unit 2 – Task

I would like to detail one of my ideas for a classroom activity to help students better visualize data transmission. Students can be asked to pretend that they are the different routers/nodes in a computer network, and I will first begin by passing a face-up piece of paper with the phrase “hidden message” on it and tell the students to pass it to the recipient (without saying who it is). Once they ask for clarification, I will again take the paper back, write down a label that says “IP: (name)” and pass it back. I will repeat this process once more but fold the paper to represent encryption, etc, to allow for an interactive visualization of how data is shared and how to make this an interactive experience.
