What is the project?
You will choose one of the following guiding questions that most interests you and about which you want to learn more. Then, you will conduct research and create a multimodal presentation that you will submit to me no later than August 7th.
What your project includes will largely depend upon what you choose to write about and the format you choose to use. The idea is to take what would/could be a paper and use your creativity to present your findings in new and original ways. You should consider adding audio or video clips to the presentation wherever they would be appropriate. There are many resources available through you tube and other web based sources. Read the article 50 Ways to Tell a Storyand investigate some Web 2.0 tools like Slideshare, Vuvox, Glogster and others, all of which are listed in the article. http://cogdogroo.wikispaces.com/50+Ways
