Computers use binary to decode and encode messages so that it can work. Just like computers, we decode things every day. We do it with symbols, actions, colours, numbers and words. In this activity, we are decoding a language - Auslan, or 'Australian Sign Language. Did you know that sign language is different all across the world? Even Auslan, which is Australian has a few changes according to which state you live in. See if you can decipher the message contained in the template and respond back in a video. Instructions 1. Read the Auslan fingerspelling. You can use the image example attached to help decode the message. 2. draw or type what each letter is above it. 3. Use the video recorder to fingerspell a reply back to me. 🧍🏻♀️Students/Parents/Caregivers🧍🏼 We are learning to: * recognising that numbers, text, images, sounds, animations and videos are all forms of data when stored or viewed using a digital system. * exploring codes and symbols that are representations of data. Why we are learning these skills In Year 3-4 we need to learn how to decode messages. We do this nonverbally, textually, verbally and digitally. Technology is all around us, and to navigate the devices we use, we need to have decoding skills. This will increase our confidence when using technology and allow our brain to form different pathways when problem-solving.
