So much of our world is technology based. Our homes have become smart homes with interconnected security, TV and internet. We use bluetooth while driving, we access streaming music services and so much more. So, it is important for our students, our future leaders, movers and shakers, to understand how computers think and communicate. All ‘digital’ technology, such as CDs, mobile phones, fiber optics, and satellite communications use binary numbers. We now live in a digital world, and the most important digits are 1 and 0! One of the great things about learning binary, is that not only do students learn how our technology communicates and processes information but it meets so many standards, ISTE, CS standards, Common Core Math and more.

This lesson is a 2-3 (45-minute) class lesson that introduces students to how computers work and interact with each other. This lesson includes some #gamification for the class including two class wide games and an interactive. A Google slide presentation, game printables and videos are embedded within the lesson plan as well as connections to standards.
