Imagine trying to use words to describe every scene in a film, every note in a song, or every street in your town. Now imagine trying to do it using only the numbers 1 and 0. Every time you use the Internet to watch a movie, listen to music, or check directions, that’s exactly what your device is doing, using the language of binary code.

A battleship game board.

Print two to a page, print on white cardboard, cut them in half, laminate them and the kids use whiteboard markers to plot their ships.

The targets under each ship denotes how many hits it can take before being sunk. The kids can choose if they want to play with all four ships, subs only, large ships only, or whatever they decide on.

An example of a self-reflection tool. Students used this to reflect on their Mathematics learning in the semester by writing their own version of reports.

**Context:** The two classes I used this with struggle with their Mathematics learning and I spend a good time of my teaching trying to get them to see their learning as a journey rather than just pass and fail. I began the year with a lot of resentment about Maths and how hard it was and they had never passed. I knew I had to develop their resilience and growth mindset. So I told them the only requirement I had was 100% effort. So we have been working on this all year. I used this activity as part of this process.

**Report Reflection:** I decided to put together a reflection activity that modelled the reports we use to report at our school. I hooked the boys in by telling them that they would be helping me write their reports for me (reactions:priceless!). I explained that what they were filling in was exactly what I fill in and explained the different elements. They then had to complete the three reflection questions to help with the report comment. I explained that like learning is a two way street, so is reporting and feedback. We are in it together. Being the charismatic students they are, they tried the "im outstanding at everything" so I would counsel them about the process further and then I found them engaging in it honestly.

On reflection, I would give them a copy of this at the beginning of the year so that they know what will be reported on (like giving a marking criteria at the beginning of a project) and would like to make questions more specific and targeted about learning/teaching strategies and maybe include a student feedback section for me to get feedback on my practice.
