  17. 17. Honourable Mention<br />7.D.1 by Heather C, MCAHS, USA <br />“Are you addicted to Google” <br />Judges comment: “Are You Addicted to Google' approached the task in a different fashion and the overall strategy was a good one. A huge number of sound effects were used which added to the quality of the end product. Many, many images were used, however, some of the images were too pixilated and took away from the quality of the video. The sub-titling phrasing was commendable but often tended to scroll too fast across the screen. More detailed credits and citations were also needed. Overall, a fun end product to watch”.<br />
  18. 18. Third Place (tie)<br />11.F.2 by Mu Ji Hwang, QA, Qatar<br />“Wireless Connectivity”<br />Judges comment:<br />“Mu Ji H's Wireless Connectivity' used many interesting techniques in the production of this multimedia artifact and seemed to make use of the limited resources at hand. Good camera angles and shots were used as well as some 'special effects'. The use of different intonations of the voice and exaggerated acting were appreciated. However, there seemed to be little or no evidence of credits nor outsourcing..”<br />
  19. 19. Third Place (tie)<br />4.A.1 by Kellie E, MCAHS, USA<br />“The Internet is a Shelf”<br />Judges Comment:<br />“The Internet is a Shelf' made good use of music, transitions and the audio quality was good. The use of a bookshelf to explain technology concepts was very much appreciated as was the comparison of a hard copy application and an online application. Proper credits and citations were used in this end product.” <br />
  20. 20. Second Place<br />10.D.2 by Yaroslav Loginov, Sotogrande International School, Spain<br />“Virtual Communication”<br />Judges Comment:<br />“Virtual Communication' also used a different approach to explain their concept using original images in animations. However, there was no evidence that an outsourced multimedia artifact had been requested nor used within this end product. Many animation and screen shot techniques were used as well as purposeful audio effects. Several sub-topics were explained well and the audience should gain a good understanding of the concept after watching this multimedia artifact. It was also appreciated that some prediction was used which is always fun to see if the predictions become reality or close to it.” <br />
  21. 21. FIRST PLACE<br />The Flat Classroom Project 2010-1 overall winner, <br />Judges Comment:<br />“It was appreciated that a different approach was used and that efforts to obtain an outsource video was evident. The audio was clear; good simple, effective images were used which focused on current events. The music chosen was effective and the use of a collage of images had positive impact. The author was assigned a difficult concept and the audience should gain a good understanding of the concept after watching this multimedia artifact.”<br />
