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 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 by Wednesday, Nov. 15th.

Daily journals must be up to date and current to Tuesday, Oct. 31st.  No daily journals are needed after this as presentation/summary video will reflect your final stages of your project.

The Project #1 Presentation/Summary Video makes up 25% of your overall mark.  I have attached scoring rubrics for each so you know my expectations.  Presentations will start on Monday, November 6th and will also be on Tuesday, November 7th.  Order of presenting will be drawn on Thursday and posted on the whiteboard.  Both presentation and summary video MUST BE SAVED ON MY DESKTOP BY THE END OF CLASS TUESDAY, November 7th!  Here are the links to the presentations done last semester along with the our YouTube channel playlist of summary videos for examples.
