"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."
"Serena – Very well done – using Watson was great for helping your viewers understand the idea of AI in important medical situations, especially the communication and understanding aspects. There is a significant need for the technologies…"
"Gia – Your goal is a super important one, and especially having a family member with special needs in autism. I saw many examples of assistive technology in your video – switches and communication boards. You discussed artificial…"
"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!…"
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…"
"Your narration was well done – clear speaking at a good pace. The speed up writing on the notebook page was good for attracting the viewer’s attention. You talked about sharing ideas and working together to do something amazing. I was…"
"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…"
"Your Ohio Pitbulls analytics video does a good job of highlighting the interactivity, commerce, membership, web activity, user flow, and activity. Fans have access to so much information – this shows a very applicable use of analytics…"
"Your Sociology Analytics technology video provides a clear definition right at the start. Your running text does a good job of saying why and how analytics are useful, and I think you could strengthen the video with the use of images in order to…"

"VR video: You were up front right away that there are pros and cons to VR. I like how you connected the experience across a wide range of users including learning n trade schools. Looking ahead, makes sense that body suits would be coming. I…"
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).
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!
