final presentation

Post  captain eric on Wed Dec 10, 2014 3:07 pm

For your final presentation, your task is to take an element/idea/argument for one of your papers and recreate it in a digital medium. The project should span about five minutes if audio or video or should be able to be skimmed or read quickly in about seven minutes. While this is intended to be a 'fun' final, it will be graded. So, when thinking about the quality of your final piece be sure to remember:
1. Your project does not have to cover any complete paper, but it's argument, presentation, or explanation should be well thought out.
2. The medium you choose will help define how your project plays out. Prezi for instance is good at teaching, using other mediums within it, and can be organizationally/spatially complex while a video is good at showing and helping the viewer experience an event/discussion. And so on.
3. Your project will naturally diverge from your paper in some ways. That's okay. Doing an interview, creating a pastiche, impersonating historical figures, etc. will necessarily cast your idea in a different light.

Once you've completed your project, please post a web link (not a document) along with a short sentence-or-three description of your project.

Please email me if you have any other questions.

Final Presentation

Post  leighhoepf on Sun Dec 14, 2014 8:36 pm

For my project I went around my dorm and interviewed different people. Because I wrote my research paper on dreams, I asked them what they thought the meaning of dreams was. The purpose of this video was to hear different people's responses and to see if there was a general agreement on the topic. Because there is no proven theory to explain the meaning of dreams, I thought it would be interesting to hear different people's opinions.

Here is the link to my video:

Final Presentation- Should the Drinking Age Be Lowered?

Post  Emily Novak on Mon Dec 15, 2014 7:30 pm

http://prezi.com/way_31ehhvtu/?utm_campaign=share&utm_medium=copy

For my final project I decided to make a Prezi composed of youtube videos, a blog post with an interview of me asking my friends and family if they think the drinking age should be lowered to 18, and factual statistics and different viewpoints from my research paper on prezi slides with pictures to inform viewers about the effects of lowering the drinking age and teaching them the diverse opinions about the topic.

Final Presentation - Freedom Percussion Literacy Story

Post  BenPaul on Tue Dec 16, 2014 2:31 pm

Final Presentation - Online Water Polo Journal

Post  Jackson Brauer on Tue Dec 16, 2014 6:12 pm

For my final project I wrote an online water polo journal. I started when the idea of water polo was introduced to me and ended with more of a post game synopsis in which I could respond more freely and evoke more emotion. I tried to base my online journal around the point in my paper in which I feel that "I had become literate in water polo". Because my journal shows a clear transition from not knowing to knowing... and then in my paper, everything is torn down. It just goes to show how literacy can be something that is that hard to grasp.

Journal starts at bottom of page. Top is most recent and bottom is beginning.

FINAL PROJECT

Post  taylorwas on Wed Dec 17, 2014 12:52 am

I decided to do my final project on my research paper, "The Importance of Sex." I covered a lot of things in my paper, but I specifically focused on the section that addresses the difference between men and women's sexual desires and needs. I interviewed college guys and girls at my apartment about their own thoughts and needs on this topic to help prove some things in my paper. Enjoy my video. Smile

Final Project- Emily Widger

Post  EmilyWidg on Wed Dec 17, 2014 2:38 pm

For my final presentation I created my own online weblog. I used my literacy story about the time I hit a Grand Slam in my final softball tournament. The posts on my weblog start from my early years as a softball player (on the bottom), and go on to explain how I have grown in the sport over the years. I was able to write more freely and personally about that amazing moment. I also added pictures of myself that correlate to that exact day when I hit my grand slam, as well as pictures of me when I was younger. I thought that creating a weblog would make my story that much more personal and could give my audience an inside look into how special that day was for me. The whole point of my literacy story was to show how I have become literate in the game of softball, and this weblog portrays that starting from my past up to my present.

Post  Jordan Sneed on Wed Dec 17, 2014 5:02 pm

For my final project I decided to use my research paper on the thinness of model. I went around and asked people their perspective of models and how or if they affect them.

Final Project-Nike's Indonesian Sweatshops

Post  Chrisklip11 on Wed Dec 17, 2014 7:51 pm

For my final presentation, I decided to make a video that covered a specific section of my research paper. In particular, it covers the living conditions and human rights issues involved in the discussion of Nike's sweatshops. It uses a lot of insight from a man named Jim Keady who has had the opportunity to visit the sweatshops and live in the worker's lifestyle for a while. My video does seem a bit intense and might overplay the severity of conditions, but I think it's necessary if we ever want the conditions for these workers to change. I would recommend watching the video at about half volume because the music can get a bit loud at some points.

Final Presentation-Holloway

Post  RobertHoll on Wed Dec 17, 2014 8:36 pm

For my presentation, I made a Prezi on the physical and psychological effects that pets might have on humans. I used classical psychology concepts with recent medical research to help support my claim. I also used a couple of YouTube clips in order to spice things up a bit and make the presentation more interactive.

For my final I decided to make a Prezi on the affects of technology and social media on our generation. In the Prezi it shows both the positive and negative affects that technology can have on us and gives opinions about what will happen in the future.

Here is the link to my project. I decided to do a phone interview with me playing an old time football player who had to retire due to several concussions. You will see how concussions have affected his speech and things of that nature. Hope you enjoy it!

Final Project - Amy Blevins

Post  AmyBlevins on Thu Dec 18, 2014 6:55 pm

I decided to do a prezi that looks like the profile of Rosie Hardy. In it I included information about her life as well as photos she has taken. In the "fan video" I show how I used her levitation photography as an inspiration and how I edited the photo I took. I also included other photography I took that was inspired by her surreal photography. I included aspects of my paper including the famous people she had photographed, her struggle with Alopecia, as well as her relationship with Nace and her Fairytale series. I also included her video of TED talks to show her interaction with her audience. I chose this medium because I feel like it represented her blog and how she is very involved in social media. It also involves her fans and how she inspires others.   Very Happy

Final Presentation; NSA leaks and Civil Liberties

Post  GrantMartin on Thu Dec 18, 2014 8:34 pm

For my final presentation, I used elements from my final research paper to create a prezi discussing the Edward Snowden leaks. The project centers on public and legislative debates and considers the national security implications of the leaked documents. The Snowden debate embodies the principles that I based my final research paper on; therefore a more honed analysis of the opposing opinions on Snowden should provide more insight into the arguments my final paper was based on.

Here is a link to the presentation:

Final Presentation Project

Post  madmkane on Thu Dec 18, 2014 9:36 pm

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KUdwhBIDmIY&feature=youtu.be

I decided to interview Colleen who is a Freshman worrying about the Freshman 15. I chose to interview her because I wanted to hear her thoughts about it and see how she avoids it. I also wanted to see if she has time to exercise with her busy schedule since many Freshman believe they don't have any free time.

Final Project

Post  Lmudd on Fri Dec 19, 2014 12:46 am

For my final project i chose to pick an idea out of my literacy story. I decided to use prezi as my medium. I chose this medium because I could express my idea easily and I could use pickers.

I made a movie based on my research paper, which was about kill dog shelters vs no-kill dog shelters. In this movie, I interviewed three people to gain their opinions on the topic of dog shelters and euthanasia.
