  • The Design Cycle
  • Why IB requires it?
    • Guide to preparing research and creative work
    • Helps us learn to organize
    • Prepares students for Personal Project
      • 4 Components
        • The Process Journal
        • The Product
        • The Essay
        • Presentation
      • Scored in 7 assessment areas
  • Design Cycle Overview
    • 6 Parts
    • Each is weighted evenly
    • Guidance
      • Level I receives teacher guidance
      • Each year guidance tapers down
      • Each year level of detail increases
  • Design Cycle
  • Criterion A: Investigate
    • Step 1 – Identify the Problem
      • What is the teacher asking me to do?
      • How does it relate to the real world?
      • (AoI connection)
  • Criterion A: Investigate
    • Step 2 – Develop the Design Brief
      • What do I need to do to make sure I do my best work?
      • How can I make sure I’ve included everything the teacher has asked for?
        • Develop a Test (checklist)
      • What research do I need to conduct?
  • Criterion A: Investigate
    • Step 3 – Formulate a Design Specification
      • What resources can I use?
      • What limitations must I work within?
  • Criterion B: Design
    • Brainstorm possible solutions
    • Check solutions using test (checklist)
    • Provide pros and cons for each solution
    • Choose best solution
  • Criterion C: Plan
    • Step by step what needs to be done
      • Examples
        • Outline, Flowchart, Timeline, Storyboard, etc.
    • Include in each step
      • What will be done
      • Resources needed
      • Time needed
  • Criterion D: Create
    • Step 1 – Use appropriate techniques & equipment
      • Are there shortcuts?
      • Are you using the best application?
  • Criterion D: Create
    • Step 2 – Follow the plan
      • Make notes on your plan of changes made
        • Do you need to add another step?
        • Did it take you longer than expected?
        • Can you skip this step?
      • State why changes are made
  • Criterion D: Create
    • Step 3 – Create the product/solution
      • This is done while following steps 1 & 2
      • Compare to Test (checklist)
  • Criterion E: Evaluation
    • Step 1 – Evaluate the product/solution
      • Reflection
        • What would you improve upon?
        • What did you do best?
      • Did you meet the teacher’s expectations?
        • Use the test developed in Criterion A
      • What would you do differently?
  • Criterion E: Evaluate
    • Step 2 – Evaluate their use of the design cycle
      • Reflection
        • What would you improve upon?
        • What did you do best?
      • How did you feel as you worked through the process?
  • Criterion F: Attitude in Technology
    • Takes place the entire time you are working on the project/solution.
      • Personal engagement
        • (motivation, independence, general positive attitude)
      • Attitude towards safety, cooperation & respect for others
  • Our Role in the Personal Project
