Task 2: Data- Patterns & Play  - 
#cserTask2 (option 2)

I really love this website
It gives you real time data on all sorts of different aspects of our world.
As some examples...
* births this year
* births today
* cars manufactured this year
* road accident fatalities
* emails sent
* mobile phones bought.

It's all real time so you'll see some of the numbers flickering up as you watch. Fascinating for kids.
I've had many great conversations with kids about aspects of their world with this website. We've also talked about how we could represent this data to an audience and what we would use to best make our case.

Task 1: Introducing DTs  - 
Option 2

I really like this story! In short - Lyron is a high school student who could see a problem. In this case, students at his High School had to fill out ridiculous amounts of paperwork to apply for a locker. Depending what subjects they were doing, they might be better suited to have a locker in one particular area of the school.
Lyron created a digital solution in the form of an app so that students can now decide where they would like their locker assigned and choose it via the app. It works a little like when you are booking cinema tickets as it shows which lockers are already taken. It constantly updates itself so the students can always see what lockers are available.
I really like this story because it's a real world problem for Lyron and high school students in particular could relate to this idea.
When administrators at Crescenta Valley High School needed a more efficient way to assign lockers to students, they turned to one of their own students for help.
