Internet of Things

"Alexia – You have an excellent introduction providing necessary background on the technologies. Using your own voice helps to explain along with images and text. I see how using a Fitbit could help a teacher have more energy – do you…"

"Zach – you showed a variety of things connected by internet communications and gave an example of the refrigerator. How does the refrigerator know which items are missing? Is this an optical feature, some kind of inventory entry? I think the…"

"Aaron – Good topic! I was just getting interested in the ideas when the video cam e to an end. I was wondering more about the risks you described at the end when you showed the ominous looking robot. Meta-Judge Terry."

Save Lives with AIs

Are robots going to take away our jobs

"Elisabeth – The video has a nice viewing pace, good match with the music choice. I like the graphics and the brief but very clear captions that guide your story forward. I didn’t see your credits for this work. Well done technically!…"

Make Space for Makerspaces

"Hi, You mention that makerspaces have cultivated a new community of leaders and I was wondering if you had examples of what you mean? It is a fascinating point. How are they leading in this day and age?  Nice transitions and technically done…"

"Makerspace video:  Your work has a very alive method, good focus, and changes while panning effectively through the makerspace -  actively creates the dialog with handwriting. The text told the story, and I think your viewers would…"

How do robots impact education?

"Your production is lively and attractive using the handwritten words and objects to get the ideas underway. You state several time how robots can help in education, but I am wondering what specific ways that might be? Examples can always help your…"

Hey Mr Smith, 

Thanks for the feedback :) and I do apologise for replying so late. I did consider how teachers could adapt the learning in other ways however due to some time constraints and a lack of research and preparation, those ideas were unable to be brought up into my final video.

If done again, I would definitely consider other ways of how Adaptive Technologies are integrated and used by teachers.

Thank you for the positive feedback! Sorry this reply is coming rather late. I don't check my school e-mail very often. In regards to your question, unfortunately, I was unable to get an outsource clip for my video (for whatever reason, my request was never fulfilled). I tried my best to make up for that by using video clips that I found on the internet. The only thing I would've done differently if I could would be that I would've put in more videos that I took myself, and I would've included an outsource clip (obviously).

Hi Terry, I have actually been having trouble downloading/uploading my video this past weekend, so I plan on asking my teacher tomorrow on what I should do to fix it.

Terry, I just want you to notice what you've done with the judging. The fact you leave comments on these student videos gives very important feedback. It tells the students that people notice. I helps them know that what they do matter. Well, Terry, you matter. What you're doing matters very much, thank you. You are doing a great job judging!
