I recently did an interesting lesson which combined my student’s ICT and geographical skills.
Challenging the students, I posed the problem,
Can you map out the WIFI coverage of the school?
My pupils got into teams and then picked a floor to work on. They then used their mapping knowledge to create a plan of all the rooms and corridors in the school.
Finally, walking around the school with their iPads, they shaded the signal level of the different areas.
During the plenary of the lesson, the students had to investigate why some areas were stronger than others and why there were some blackspots. At the end, I asked them to come up with ideas of where they could move routers to make coverage greater.
Have a go with your students. It certainly got them thinking and developed a range of problem solving skills too. Let me know how you get on by commenting below.
