How does meta judging work? Divisional award winners use the rubric for judging. All first and second place award winners are viewed by the meta judge who then determines the best overall without using the rubric. Those who are first and second in each section are often very close and it is understood that they meet the criteria to be at the top of the project.
Honorable Mention Winner: SadeB_AAHSVideo: 5.E.2 Computing Made Easyhttp://flatclassroomproject.ning.com/video/computing- made-easyJudges comment: I was impressed by the juxtaposition of the hand drawn visual style and the use of gesture- based device (seen in reflection) for recording of the video. Ease of use is certainly the leading compelling aspect of Gesture-Based Computing and this video made a strong case for it- I might have liked to seen the drawing of the message on the iPad sped up just a tad.
Third Place Winner: Samuel M/KSVideo: 8.C.2 Game-based Learninghttp://flatclassroomproject.ning.com/video/game- based-learning-2Judges comment: The graphic style for this video was compelling and matched well with the topic, and was complemented by compelling narration. The synthesis brought together key points as well as addressing the positive and negative aspects of game-based learning.
Second PlaceWinner: RachelP_SVHSVideo: 8.B.1 Tablet Computinghttp://flatclassroomproject.ning.com/video/tablet- computing-1Judges comment: I enjoyed the clean video style in this project, use of music and the depiction of examples that both showed the technology and supported the message. The one caveat that is difficult to avoid is the dominance of iPads, and at least there should be mention that there are other key table devices out there.
FIRST PLACEThe NetGenEd 2012 overall WinnerWinner: NiallC_KSVideo: 1.F.2 The Internet of Thingshttp://flatclassroomproject.ning.com/video/niallc- internet-of-things-freedom-choiceJudges Comment: I was impressed by the comprehensive overview of this topic and its illustration of how it might come to be via concrete examples. This video was able to demonstrate clearly how this technology might come to be in clever ways through metaphors and real objects, and added a bit of clever humor that did not detract from the message
