  3. 3.
  4. 4. Project Goals<br />Students will collaborate within and across schools to apply alternative energy, school design, energy transfer, and energy efficiency concepts to the creation of a dream school. <br />
  5. 5. Curricular Connections<br />Science:   Sustainability, Energy efficiency, Alternative energy sources, Energy conversion and conservation.<br />Technology: Drafting and design software application<br />Engineering:   Engineering Design Process, Structural components<br />Mathematics: Scale, area, energy efficiency calculations<br />
  6. 6. Project Plan<br />Students become content experts in focus areas<br /> - Anchorage: Alternative Energy Sources<br />- Boston: Energy Transfer and Structural Components<br />- Good Hope: Energy Efficiency <br />Students create short media files summarizing their research. Students share these resources with students at other sites. <br />Phase 1 – Research and Share<br />
  7. 7. Phase 2 - Collaboration<br />Students use their content knowledge and new resources from their collaboration to design their dream schools using Google SketchUp. <br />School Requirements. <br />- 150 Students<br />- Given square footage<br />- Realistic and drawn to scale<br />- Justified site-specific energy source<br />
  8. 8. Phase 3 – Comment Period<br />Students prepare draft presentation videos justifying their design decisions <br />Students share videos and SketchUp drafts with students at other schools. <br />In return, students provide meaningful feedback to peer groups with guided questions. <br />
  9. 9. Phase 4 – Revisions and Final Presentations<br />Students incorporate feedback from peers. <br />Students present final schools to their classes. <br />
  10. 10. Project Timeline<br />Early February – Project Launch via Skype<br />Late February – Publish research media files<br />Mid March – Initial draft conferences<br />Late March – Final Presentations<br />
  11. 11. Tools and Technology<br />Introduction – Skype<br />Phase 1: Research and Share – iMovie, Animoto, Google Docs<br />Phase 2: Design - Google SketchUp<br />Phase 3: Collaboration - Edmodo<br />Phase 4: Revisions and Presentations – Google Presentations, Glogster, Prezi<br />
