Compendium of Interdisciplinary Activities for an Introductory Course in Communication Systems at the Secondary Level.
Lasko, David J.
This compendium of interdisciplinary learning activities is designed to assist technology education instructors who are conducting an introductory secondary-level course in communication technology. The 12 activities, which are sequenced from introductory, low-cost activities to more advanced and more involved activities, deal with the following topics: the role of communications in expanding the world, conducting a neighborhood survey to count communications devices, constructing interference-free messages, fiber-optic simulation, assembly and use of a telegraph system, radio communication, satellite communication, basic principles of lasers, laser fiber-optic communication, principles of desktop publishing, principles of electronic mail, and reflection holography. Each activity is designed as an autonomous unit, and each includes an overview, equipment list, step-by-step description of the procedure, suggested evaluation techniques, and discussion of the activity's interdisciplinary aspects. Substantial bibliographies follow many of the activities. (MN)
