As the schedule indicates, you are to finish up this year by completing a final project for the 4th Quarter. The Final Project has been broken down into steps that need to be completed in order for you to get a decent grade. Half of your grade will consist of the "building blocks" or steps that you complete and turn in as indicated.
Storyboards have been turned in and approved. Grades for getting them in, on-time, have been issued.
Ok. The overall stop motion project is due WEDNESDAY, APRIL 4th. We will present them in class this day.
Our next graded activity will be on March 21st when you will have to show your progress so far in your movie. At least 50% of it should be finished at this point. Audio is not needed at this point.
Until then, you have this time to work on your project.
Storyboards are due this week. Tomorrow. Wednesday. Let's get them done!
Today we are working on our Stop Motion Project.
Today you're email with a link to your 7 - 10 videos is due. See the Feb 1st post.
Next week Wednesday, your Storyboards are due!
Today we are working on our Stop-Motion Video Projects. Each group is assembling and posting to one of their web-pages 10 Videos that they feel are similar to what they want to work on.
The groups are:
Yesterday we ironed out our timeline and figured out some items to consider when doing our stop motion. Our first task is to INVESTIGATE other stop motion examples for inspiration. With that in mind, we have come up with our first assignment.
Assignment #1: By February 14th find 10 Stop-Motion videos that you think are inspirational and are similar to a stop-motion creation that you would like to make. Each example should have a small 1 paragraph write-up included that tells what you find particularly interesting or inspiring about that video.
To turn in this assignment, create a page on your website called "Stop Motion Project" and embed the 10 videos on it. Include the small paragraph under each video regarding your thoughts on the video. (Make sure, that if you are in a group, include all your group members names on that project page!) When you're done with that, simply send me an email with the URL Link to your Stop Motion Project page.
Future Work: By February 21st turn in a proposal with a Storyboard outlining how your short film will be shot.
So, today, I will not be in class. You're responsibility is to stay on task, do your research, create your Stop Motion Project Web Page, and learn a few things.
Today we are going to start working on our movies, and make sure we got our plans down for next week and beyond.
Today we are going to work on a quick, in-class assignment. You will once again be using Google Maps for this project.
We will have you work on creating a map with Directions in it. You will need to create a map with Driving or Walking Directions to your home here in Genoa from Piazza Ferrari. We are choosing Piazza Ferrari since it is a central location and everyone should be able to find it as a starting point.
You will create a Map, figure out your directions, and save it before sending me the link to your map.
This is due by the end of class today, January 10th. Good Luck.
I am not here today.You will have someone else watching over you today, so I expect you to be on your best behavior. You have an assignment that you need to work on in class today. It is due at the end of the period. This WILL be graded so you had better get moving on it. You will need to work fast!
Today you are going to create a personalized Google Map. You have to turn it in by the end of the period by emailing it to Mr. Z. You will have to use your Google Account to begin with, so you will need to log into your Gmail to start.
Follow these Directions:
Your map can be of any location that you are familiar with, except for ISG! (I really don't need a dozen maps of ISG.)
Instead you can create of map of:
Where you park your car
and others....etc etc
You should make your map PRIVATE, and NOT PUBLIC! Make sure you click in the <Unlisted> button.
Click on the <Save> button up on top to make sure you've saved everything.
Now click on the blue <Collaborate>. This will open a new box where you can invite Mr. Z to view your map.
In the Invite Collaborators box, you should put in Mr. Z's email address. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Put a check-mark in <Send me a copy> (This way you have a copy of the Map in your email for your records!)
Click on <Send Invitations>
If you would like to see a short video on how to make a Google Map, you can watch the following video. Be careful though, the initial instructions are old. The video was made before the Google Interface changed to get to Maps, so follow the instructions that I wrote above and you will be fine.
If you have problems in trying to figure this out, ask a neighbor for help. You can also use Google to find out how, but it's pretty easy really, especially if you have watched the above video.
Today you need to finish up your Games. You should publish your Game and send the Link/URL to Mr. Z in an email in the following format.
09 - Lastname, Firstname - My Game [In the Subject Line]
Mr. Z, [In the Body of the email]
Here is the link to my Game.

This is due BEFORE Class on Wednesday. On Wednesday you will be working on a NEW PROJECT!
