Daily Note

Hello there 

  1. As we discussed last week, I will not be here this week. 
  2. Please review our daily bulletin
  3. If your last name begins with A through M, please get tested. 
  4. Use this time to: 
    1. Review your IA, parts A,B,C,D and E. Please consult google classroom for our IA guidance. This should take about 15 to 20 minutes
    2. Construct a plan for your work on your IA this week: 
      1. what exactly will you do, when exactly will you do it?
    3. Submit your plan to me via email
    4. Work your plan. 
  5. At the end of this class, please send me an update. This will be a formatively marked.

 

A little less comfortable

Please ensure you carefully read the rubrics for each section of the IA. As a reminder: 

  • Criterion A – Planning – 6 marks
  • Criterion B – Record of Tasks (RoT) and Design – 6 marks
  • Criterion C – Development – 12 marks
  • Criterion D – Functionality (Video) – 4 marks
  • Criterion E – Evaluation – 6 marks

Please ensure you directly write about each part of each rubric. 

The biggest problem I see with a student's IA is time management. It is important you allocate time so you complete your IA at high level and really read the rubric.

Your topic must be suitably complex.  Please ensure you are perfectly clear about every work in your problem statement and your teacher has approved your success criteria.

Please ensure you directly write about each part of each rubric. You should compare lower band in a rubric to a higher band in a rubric. For example, what is the difference between these two bands in section C?

 

5–8 The use of techniques demonstrates a moderate level of complexity and ingenuity in addressing the scenario identified in criterion A. It is characterized by some appropriate use of existing tools. There is some attempt to explain the techniques used and why they are adequate for the task. All sources are identified.

9–12 The use of techniques demonstrates a high level of complexity and ingenuity in addressing the scenario identified in criterion A. It is characterized by the appropriate use of existing tools. The techniques are adequate for the task and their use is explained. All sources are identified.

 

The biggest problem I see with a student's IA is time management. It is important you allocate time so you complete your IA at high level and really read the rubric.

Your topic must be highly complex.  Please ensure you are perfectly clear about every work in your problem statement and your teacher has approved your success criteria. 

Our Big idea

The big idea for today is IA.

The essential questions for this topic are:

How do we create an authentic, technically challenging solution to a real world problem?

It takes time to explore and really understand a big idea. If you want to
learn more about ia (which is connected to today's daily note), please click here .

We are learning this because as a designers must understand scientific and technical innovation. Designers use systems, models, methods, and processes to solve problems.
