File Format Showdown Entry: PDF

During our Unit 2 work with digital information, we learn about different file types, lossy and lossless compression and how to encode images.

We have a "File Format Showdown" in which students must select their favorite file format (within the categories of text, image, audio, video, or "other") and argue for it with an infographic, a one-pager written response, and an in-class debate. 

One excellent infographic example is displayed here with the student's permission.
