Switcheroozoo Databases

04 Jan

We started a unit of work on databases today with a session creating datacards on crazy animals using Switcheroozoo.  The premise of the lesson was to highlight the power of the computer to organise data, so we tried to ask questions of our printed data.  Add your comments below on how easy you found it to find the answers.  What would have helped us to search the data?

      Would a computer have been useful to search the data? Why?

      How would this of helped? Would it not been have been tricky to look at everyone and get a quick response. What would have helped?

    We think that it was quite hard because everyone was writting it in different ways like tons or grams.It would’ve been easer if everyone did it in the same way.

        I would say it is because it can analyse the data quicker than a group of children (or an individual). Computers can perform hundreds of calculations in a very short time.

        I think it is because you will be able to keep it if you need it again.

    It would of helped is if all of us had the same field and we found it hard to collect the Data so we could of used the computers,but it was easy to make the animals.We think this site is very good.

    You could also write mph on the story so that everyone does mph, instead of a wide choice.

    The thing that needed to be improved was that everbody needed to do the same data then it would have been better. I think that if we had used the computers to sort the data then I think it would have been alot easier 🙂

    switch zoo was very fun. Me and lc found it very easy. using it in class was confusing because on speed people were using
    kph, mph and mmph.but we enjoyed it.

    the ratting of swich zoo was medium becase it was not easy telling wich was high and wich was lower
