Project #10102 - Multimedia Presentation (15%)

Multimedia Presentation (15%)

 

This stage of the project is due at the end of Week 5.  Prepare a short multimedia presentation that summarizes the technological change that you will be addressing in your final essay.  The 10 pts will be awarded for content and "style points" – so be sure that you presentation is neat, grammatically correct, and visually appealing.  Your project should be posted both in your assignment folder and in the special conference that will be set up so that you can share your projects with the class.

 

You will have already participated in a conference where James Burke's text of The Day the Universe Changed is contrasted with the same chapter from Burke's BBC series of the same name. Using your own research topic as the subject, you will now have the opportunity to see your topic [inspired by either Shaffer, Burke or Strayer] presented in a different format, and how your text and your multi-media presentation differ from each other.  If you choose a more recent (20th / 21st century), be sure to make a connection to an earlier technology or technological transformation presented through the assigned readings.

 

The type of presentation is entirely up to you. PowerPoint is the default option, but those of you who have skills with other types of multimedia – video editing, HTML, Flash, and so forth – can use those options if you prefer.  In using PowerPoint be careful not to use a background that is too busy, or will distract the viewer from the content on each slide.  Never over-burden a slide with too much content. While there does need to be a visual component, you can also pull in music or other audio.  Don't feel that you have to be as formal with this as you might be in a business presentation – a bit of humor is always a plus, and experiment with voice over, with yourself as the narrator, a la Burke.

 

Be careful to document all sources that you use.  Given that there's a lot of fluidity in the rules for citing multimedia, a specific format won’t be required, but you do need to give credit where credit is due for all graphics, music, or video that you use.  This is a classroom presentation, so "fair use" rules apply – just give credit, try not to "over sample" any single source, and you'll be fine.

 

Since students often want to see an example of multimedia projects, I'm going to post a few links from YouTube.  Most of these are AP History or Government projects, but they will give you the general idea:
