Logic Gates is a topic which the students will most probably be new to. Therefore they may not immediately understand the concepts behind them. This is where a tool like a Logic Gate Simulator may prove to be an extremely useful resource. One such tool is found at http://logic.ly/demo/. This is a free online simulator which will allow the students to experiment with the different functions of all the available gates.
At a glance the students may think it is a sort of game which they need to explore. Through it, the students will be learning all the concepts that are required for them to fully understand how these gates work. This is much better than having the students look at images and explaining to them why this works and this doesn’t. Through this they will be investigating on their own and they will come to realise that they can continue on trying until they have figured out how and why a particular gate works. Since it is completely online it makes it that much more useful as it does not require any prior installations or load times. Therefore it is an ideal way of letting the students test out the notes and work they have in a fun and interactive way.
