Week 1- Experimenting with code through encoding and decoding

Morse code that we used, changing it to the flash on our iPhones.

  1. Write down the processes you went through to send and receive messages.    As a group we had to determine what external things may have effected the process e.g Light from outside because we were using light (Flash from our phone), the group receiving the message also had to understand the message. We used Morse code because it was easier to transmit and understand. The small quick flashes were used to resemble dots and the long flashes dashes. We then moved our arm up and down for a new letter and in a circle for a new word. 
  2. What worked well?  Big arm actions, being quiet and focused with the light that we used to transmit the message. 
  1. What was difficult? The other team found it hard to distinguish between dots and dashes and when the next letter and word had ended because they were looking and were trying to encode the message as we went. 
  1. What would you have done to make the transition work better?

Big arm actions, My phone also died- so we shouldn’t become fully dependent on technology.
