Optimising Graphics

Discussion in 'Computing and ICT' started by sydbarrett, Jan 28, 2011.

  1. Any ideas for a nice starter for a lesson on optimising graphics?
    The kids have little understanding of what it is and why we do it.
    I could just tell them but am looking for a more interesting intro that will get them thinking about it before I show them how.

  3. If they're allowed to use mobile phones in school then get them to go to a website with stupidly large image files that have just been shrunk in display (rather than file size) and see how long it takes them to load.
     
  4. Off the top of my head, how about a jigsaw?
    But give some kids some with very few pieces ("optimised") and some with more pieces ("unoptimised").
    Then you can kick off with which takes longer and how they're the computer in that scenario.
