Experimentation time is the time to try out your skills and apply them to the best ideas that you had when you brainstormed the best features to include.
During this phase of the project you should be able to present some prototypes of your ideas. You may be able to develop these models further so that they eventually become your final project.
You should produce prototypes for:
To reach TASK COMPLETE, you must produce a ROOLER COASTER TRACK prototype
EXPERTS will produce TWO prototypes at EXPERT level
GURUS will produce all THREE prototypes at GURU Standard
Please aim to complete your prototypes
This week we are moving on to the creative side of your project.
While we will be working on TWO Phases, the amount of work required for both phases is less than each of the previous phases.
MOST IMPORTANT to reach TASK COMPLETE is:
This week it is time to have fun with RESEARCH.
Click the image above to go to the LEARN page to find out more about the tasks.
NB Please REMEMBER to show the evidence of your weebly website work to either Mr Dunphy or Ms Jeffery-Bilich so that your TRACKING STATUS shows your most recent status.
Your Digital Design (Roller coasters) lessons will usually start with Mr Dunphy opening this weebly blog which will have the basic instructions for you to follow for that particular week. You can choose to follow the blog or to use the Learn page which looks like the image on the left. If you are away, you can always find the current work by visting this blog.
This week we will introduce your Digital Design projects:
In order to complete these tasks, you will need to create your own Weebly account. In your Technology tab, you will need to create a tab for Digital Design. Your Digital Design tab will need separate tabs for each of the sections numbered 1-7 in the Learn home page (image above).
Your Roller Coaster project is due to be submitted on Monday 3rd December.
You will need to:
Rate your skills
When you have mastered a Rollercoaster skill, show it to Mr Dunphy or Mr Alcock who will give you a score for each skill. You will be able to get extra points for helping someone else to master the skill.
It is now time to start designing your own Rollercoaster.
Before you start, please refer to the Design Briefs:
There are tutorials available on the NBCS Portal Learn page to help you understand how to create your Rollercoaster and carriage designs.
The "HOME", "RESEARCH" and "IDEAS" pages need to be complete in your website by the end of this week, ie END OF TERM 3
