Friday 14 January: 5pm - submission deadline - on your blog,
I will not be collecting any paper

Assessment Criteria for the elective:

Subject Knowledge: Understanding and application of subject knowledge and underlying principles
Analysis: Examination and interpretation of resources
Research: Systematic identification and investigation of appropriate sources
Personal and Professional Development : Management of learning through reflection, planning, self direction, subject engagement and commitment


there are 4 things you will be assessed on

Assessment Evidence:
1. Assessment Records (your attendance on Fridays)
2. Student Log (your blog and your reflective notes on there and your involvement in discussions on this wiki)
3. Presentation of practical and contextual research outcomes to peer group (the final elective event)
4. Evaluative Report - 500 - 700 words (on your blog, not on paper)

Number 4 is the most important one.
As I have said all along if you keep regular notes on your blog then writing a evaluative report which gathers your thoughts together will be really easy.


Alternative to writing 500-700 words:

BBC - Virtual Revolution


In week 6 we looked at some of the footage from The Virtual Revolution a major BBC documentary series http://www.bbc.co.uk/virtualrevolution/


On the BBC site you can watch, download and edit a huge selection of footage from the series. You can download and edit some of it yourself as a reflective piece of work for your final assessment and to be shown as part of the final elective event on 21 January 2011. This re-edit or remix can be humorous, series, thought provoking or bizarre. You don't even have to edit the video, if you want to make an object, or print for example using some of the footage that is also fine – remember that this is for your final assessment instead of 500-700 written words so it needs to be a bit more than a just choosing one 2 minute clip to show.

This is cassette boy's humorous take on remixing the footage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gGopKNPqVk
