The serial data packets start with an address code (set by the DIP switches) followed by the control code. The decoder only responds if it has the same the address set.

Looked up the chip above, its a microcontroller so will need programming. That means programming software and hardware.
Dedicated IR Tx and Rx chips are available so no programming needed.

If the aim is to teach programming an Arduino Nano will easily do the job, if the students are at the level of its language.

The RP2040 Pico might be a better choice as MMBasic is much easier to learn and does not require installation of a huge software package to use it.
