How does meta judgingwork? Divisional award winners use the rubric for judging. All first and second place award winners are viewedby the meta judge who then determines the bestoverall without using the rubric. Those who are first and second in each section areoften very close and it is understood that they meetthe criteria to be at the top of the project.
Honorable MentionJudges comment: I am grouping these twotogether because I think they feel the same. Veryinformative. The slides were very smooth and flowedseamlessly. The example provided in the videoswere quality examples to show your individualtopics. I am big on grabbing interest of viewer sosomething to spark some interest at the beginningwould have been great to see. Something clever tohook us right away. I think these two were veryinformative and speaking was of high quality. Nowyou just need to sell it!
Honorable Mention 3.B.1 MarkS_SVHS_NGE FOCUS on the Camera of a TabletComputerand 8.E.1 AlejandroE_ISA 3D-Printing: Expand the Realm ofPossibilityAnd…….. 3.B.2 RiyaP-WHSB Take a Tablet I also chose Take a Tablet because I liked the flow of this video.It felt like a commercial and really just like something I wouldsee on TV or in a store. A few times the quiet pauses sloweddown the piece in transition. Very well done and your sourceswere the best displayed of them all.
Third PlaceJudges comment: I enjoyed this video. You used avariety of sources and types of media. Google Glasshas been given lots of media hype already and willbe interesting to see how the public actuallyresponds. I think trimming the piece down of usingGoogle Glass for sporting event and the timing pieceof speaking at the end were two things that I thinkcould have been improved. You brought up somereally great points in this video. Very well done.
Third Place6.F.1 CandiceZ_SVHSEntertainment & Wearable Technology
Second PlaceJudges comment: I thought this video had a greatopener. It really grabbed my attention from the start. Verywell crafted and put together. You raised a lot of greatpoints and the rhetorical question at the end was a greatway to wrap things up. The one thing missing in thisvideo was a list of resources for your information. I knowyou spoke from experience, but finding information tosupport your ideas is important. A lack of citations at theend is the only flaw in this video. Great job of piecingthings together, speaking from personal experience toconnect with a larger audience. I really think this was themost entertaining of engaging of all the videos.
Second Place1.D.1 MerrittD-WHSA"Moooo"vement of Learning Analyticsand Freedom
FIRST PLACEJudges Comment: You told a story. It was obvious thatyou planned this whole idea out from start to finish.With the touches of humor you were able to blend inthe facts and information needed to convey yourresearch. I thought the first transition could have beenimproved and possibly in terms of story developmentwhy were you on a safari? I loved the theme and ideaof being in pursuit of a MOOC. Well done! Thisreminded me of something I would have made if Iwas a student doing this project.
