Today is Thursday A on the timetable, which means it's time for our beloved triple period! We have a whole bunch of things to cover - we'll talk it through in class, but here it is in thumbnail sketch:
  1. An illustrative race

  2. Examples of communications systems
    • Fields: Communication System; Key Characteristics & Features; Most Suited to...; Social & Ethical Issues
    • Records: pp98-105 in textbook
    • Additional records: social networking sites, 3G mobile phones, VoIP

  3. Data flow diagrams
    • Explain
    • Transcribe it electronically and upload it in a classwork post

  4. Outsourcing
    • What is it?
    • Advantages and disadvantages in a corporate context

  5. A debate
    • 3 speakers
    • 3 transcribers
    • 2 minute limit
    • Team line necessary
    • Rebuttals written by all team members
    • All speeches to be transcribed!
P.S. I've (finally) updated the Term 1 classwork page. 8-)

Edit: adjusted post to reflect how much we actually achieved in our two-and-a-half hours together.
