Unit Peripheral devices
Year Level: 3Topic: Digital systemsTime: 5 hours

A peripheral device is typically a device that is external to a computer and connected either wirelessly or via a cable, although some are internal to the digital system. A way of introducing students to peripheral devices is to start with a desktop computer with no other devices connected. Progressively add devices as the different user needs are introduced. Treasure hunt and ‘What am I?’ type activities can encourage students to sort and classify peripheral devices and can help reinforce understandings about them. Create task cards that require students to use specific peripheral devices to complete a task. Compare and contrast peripherals that do the same or similar job in different ways.
