Open, Deep, Interesting

Before you start today: this is simply awesome work.


We will begin working on projects that require you to choose the tool to present.  We have spent time on the following tools (amongst others..):

  • Google Docs
    • Documents
    • Spreadsheets
    • Presentation
    • Drawings
  • Video
  • Evernote
  • Garageband/Podcasts
  • Blogging
  • Java/HTML
  • Meograph
  • Google Search Stories
  • iMotion HD
  • WikipediaVoki
Hopefully you learned a bit about each of these.  You learned when and why you would use a specific tool.  Also, I hope you became more efficient in your work flow.

An ODI question is open, deep, and interesting.  There is no one answer to the question.  I want you to present your answer in an interesting way using some of the above tools.  Have fun, be creative.

Each of these questions requires some research, some thinking, and some creative ideas for presentation.  You might write me a blog post, a memo, make a stop action movie, a podcast, or spreadsheet.  Or a combination.

You can print it out or display on your blog.  If you need alternative ways to present, ask me.

This will be due at the end of class on Wednesday.  I will assign more work on Monday.

Choose one question to answer:
  • If dinosaurs were alive which one would be tastiest?
  • How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?
  • Why do earthquakes STOP?
  • How do Chinese language writers type?  They can't use our QWERTY keyboard, can they?
  • Who has the best nickname ever?
