Product Description
Offline activity for students to see the relevance of coding in every day life.

For use in classroom or Library to explain how code is used all around us every day and throughout the world. What is it? Why do we use it? What are some of the effect of code throughout history? How do people use it to communicate? What do students need to know about code to understand another culture who uses it.

Images from free usage sites to provoke discuss and visual literacy. Du Iz Tak book by Carson Daily to use as a provocation at the beginning to help the students understands strategies of decoding and translation.

I will have books in the Library for them to choose afterwards to inspire them. I will also set out a binary code, using LEGO to make their name.

Thank you
