Meta-Judge Awards The meta-judge for this project is Torsten Otto, a flat classroom teacher from Germany. Torsten led a class through a Flat Classroom Project earlier this year. See all comments at: http://flatclassroom09-2.flatclassroomproject.org/Awards “Dear FCP09-2 participants,thank you all very much for providing me with such a difficult and yet enjoyable task. As to be expected for a Flat Classroom Project, you covered a wide range of topics using a wide range of formats from still images to news shows involving a cast of many. I judged the stories themselves, not their connection to the wiki texts which left something to be desired for. The movies clearly were the product of careful planning and for the most part skillful video work.”
Honourable Mentions 2.C.1 MatildeS_QAWell crafted story, effective editiing of the interesting interview. 1.C.1 Maha_QAThe narration is very clear, with fitting background music at a good volume. The combined effect of the audio and the well chosen images is one of strong emotional involvement of the viewer, conveying the message in a very powerful way. Full credit in the tech department. The story is well crafted, too.
Third Place 6.B.1 Riona_QA Globalisation and Outsourcing What the judge said: A number of different aspects of globalization are shown, the definitions are clear and the examples given are helpful. The technical quality is very high, the music and voice are very well balanced, transitions are used sparingly. The use of an outsourced clip as an example for globalization was well done. This movie can well be used in a class on globalization.
Second Place 7.B.2Megan Elliott QA Google: Innovation, Invention and Prediction What the judge said: The story flows very nicely and is very informative. The technical quality is excellent, the images are helpful. The integration of the outsourced clips is well done.
