Notes

I have attached the details of what needs to be included in your project proposal along with a scoring rubric.  Be sure to be detailed with this document as this will be the starting point to your project.  If we do not have the materials to support your project...complete a second proposal for Project #2 (due Feb. 27th with 5 TechPoints for submitting early).  That way we can forward this proposal on to others with hopes of obtaining support and time to order the necessary materials.  

Download the 2018 Project Proposal document and save it using your name(s).  Fill in all sections of the proposal with the required information.  This assignment is due Tuesday, Feb. 20th - email the document to...  Ashley.Hallihan@nbed.nb.ca

since the last journal entry a few things have happend that are worth mentioning like we finally got some actual artifacts to scan such as a rock spear head and a rock axe head wich were both extremly hard to scan until we finally thought of shutting the lights off wich helped the scanner not get a glare and for us to not get a glare wich was nice because we were finally able to make some progress. one problem we were having is our school ipad did an automatic software update wich caused the apple id to log out, the problem is is that we dont know the password and the district will not respond. the final thing that happened was we ordered our own structure scanner.

since we have started this project late we havent had a whole lot of time to figure some things out. however shanes first project was all based around 3d printing and scanning so its not like were learning a new skill completly from scratch. what we have done so far is became aqquainted with the structure scanner and tried scanning a few small items such as a paint chipper wich worked horribly and a pledge can witch turned out great. since our whole project is about scanning artifacts we are gunna have to work out the kinks when scanning smaller items.

Here are some great websites for project ideas/builds...

Planning is key to any successful project!  You will now begin to brainstorm and research project ideas.  This project can be done in pairs or individually (groups of 3 need my approval).  Keep in mind that the technologies in the MakerSpace are available for all groups but I am hoping that a pair of students will take ownership of a particular technology.  As well, I encourage students to use more than one technology in their final project build.  Since many of these technologies are new, start with easy objectives in the beginning in order to strengthen your skillset.  

 

See attached rubric (NOTE:  Double the value since this is your second proposal) for more details on what needs to be in your proposal.  Also attached is the blank word document...save and rename.  Email hallihana@nbed.nb.ca with completed details by Wednesday, Nov. 15th.
