Information transfer

An Information transfer activity involves getting students to put spoken or written texts into another form, such as a chart, grid, picture, table or diagram – or vice-versa. Make sure that the students can’t just copy chunks without understanding them by requiring a different organisation to the text. These tasks encourage deep processing of information. The interpretation of text, diagram or tables is a skill that is very useful both in academic and everyday life.
