  • Digital Technologies / Foundation to Level 2 / Data and Information – Elaborations

    1. Sorting objects and events based on easily identified characteristics and using digital systems to represent patterns in data, for example sorting birthdates and presenting the patterns using seasonal symbols
    2. Making generalisations about data sets, for example comparing different ways of travelling to and from school using classroom data, discussing results and finding patterns in modes of travel
    3. Experimenting with different ways of representing patterns, for example using materials, sounds, movements or drawing
    4. Exploring patterns of objects or symbols to represent data, for example the symbol 12 may represent different data to 21
    5. Learning about how data are represented by changing pixel density (resolution) in a photograph and noting the change in file size to successfully email to a friend
    6. Collecting, and sorting data through play, for example collecting data about favourite toys and sorting the results into categories such as toys they like or dislike
    7. Locating image or text data, for example searching through a digital photo library, taking into account cultural considerations such as appropriate use of images of deceased Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders
    8. Exploring, imagining and comparing the usefulness of different data displays, for example jointly creating simple column graphs and picture graphs to represent different types of items
    9. Exploring and creating graphs to represent classroom data, for example collecting data on the country of birth of each student and presenting the results as a picture graph
    10. Using digital systems to organise data to improve meaning, for example using visualisation software to create a mind map (diagram) showing relationships between characters in a story
    11. Using common software to present data creatively, for example using word processing, multimedia, graphic, numeric and presentation software to create a slideshow, movie, sounds, image, chart, word art, poster or drawing
