  15. 15. Honourable Mention<br />Karishma J, AAHS, USA<br />10.B.1 Title of video: “Virtual Communication:The Past, Present, and Future”<br />Judges comment: “Interesting video that uses a story with a variety of multimedia to demonstrate developments in virtual communication. The choices of music are good. It seems that the content is a little off on some of the earlier dates. It is very, very long, and the same message could have been conveyed in much less time. Good job on the credits, although reference to Creative Commons is missing.”<br />
  16. 16. Third Place<br />Sabrina K, AAHS, USA4.B.1 “Uploading: The Changing Shape of Information”<br />Judges comment: “The content is well-organized and provides a nice contrast between before and now. One comparison to point out though is in the section about communication, there is a big jump from the Pony Express to Gmail. What about all of the communication channels that were developed in between, such as telegraph, telephone, fax, etc.? Media are used well, especially the use of visuals. Credits are ok except for not mentioning Creative Commons.”<br />
  17. 17. Second Place<br />Juliana C (AAHS) America2.B.1 “Where In This Flat World Are We Going?”<br />Judges comment: “It is obvious that the creator of this video did her research. It was synthesized well in the form of a story. The only gap seems to exist towards the end, where there is very little discussion of critical issues of privacy and security that come with the increasing power and functionality of the Internet. The pace is a little slow, especially at the beginning, which is enhanced by staying too long with one visual (the title slide). Some music at the beginning and or end may liven things up a little. There is no mention of Creative Commons.”<br />
  18. 18. FIRST PLACE<br />The Flat Classroom Project 2010-2 overall winner, <br />Judges Comment: “This is an excellent and creative video that illustrates the power of Google by using different tools in Google to tell a story. The various elements of the video fit together well, including the search at the end for the background music that's being used in the video. It is obvious that the creator did his research and then made his case in an innovative way. Despite the fact that the credits are incomplete (no mention of Creative Commons) and there is no evidence of outsourced video, this entry really stood out.”<br />
