Evaluating Your Tutorial

Well done 6B!

You are just about finished with the Teachers of the Future unit! Our very last task is to complete the Evaluate stage (Criterion D). The assignment sheet is here.

Just like last unit, you have two options for this task. For both options, make sure to use the responses on your feedback survey as evidence for your statements (as well as your own opinions).

Option 1: the easy, but slightly boring way

For this option, all you need to do is fill in the boxes on the assignment sheet. Make sure you make a copy, rename it with your name and put it in your folder. As you fill in the boxes, use as much detail as you can. Think about me asking you: “What makes you say that?” as you fill in each box.

Once you fill in each box – with either text or a screenshot (as required) – you are finished. Make sure it’s inside your 6B Design folder.

Option 2: the fun, but more challenging way

For this option, instead of writing your answers on the assignment sheet, you will screen record your responses as you demonstrate the different parts of your finished tutorial (as well as all of the other stages of the project). This option is more challenging because you still need to answer all the questions, but you might not have them right in front of you. It might also be challenging to be able to show all the different examples. You will have to navigate back and forth to your previous work (like the tasks we did in the Inquiring and Analyzing and Developing Ideas), and you will probably have to show documents from your Google Drive as well. So, going back and forth between all of those different types of documents can be difficult.

A few ways to make this easier:

  • Make more than one recording. Do each question at a time so you know which question you’re answering. Put all of the videos together in iMovie so the finished Evaluate is just one video.
  • Open a few tabs so that you have all the things you want to show already open in different tabs on your browser. This way you can click between a few different things, rather than waiting for pages to load.
  • You can choose to record only part of your screen. This way you can have the questions in another window, and only record the window with the examples. It might seem like the video will be too small, but it won’t!

To finish up:

Your video must be uploaded to YouTube. You can make it unlisted, but it must be uploaded to YouTube and then embedded onto your blog. Do not upload directly to your blog.

Final Task for Both Options:

After you finish either option 1 or option 2, don’t forget to fill in the TSC on the assignment sheet and put it in your folder.

How to earn a 7 – 8:

  • All of your Self-Assessment and Peer-Assessment sections are complete.
  • Your reflection for Part 1 is detailed and thorough and includes 3 or more relevant and specific examples directly from your work.
  • Your reflection for Part 2 is detailed and thorough, and includes 3 or more relevant and specific examples from your work.
  • Your reflection for Part 2 includes detailed comments during all of the stages of the design cycle.
  • Your reflection for Part 2 includes detailed comments on how you worked and what you created.

Due Dates:

Both options are due at the end of class on Friday May 29th. You will have the whole class to work on this, but it must be finished by the end of class. So this means you can decide how much you feel you need to complete for homework so that you are prepared to finish by the end of class on Friday.

Analyzing Even More Tutorials!

Now that all of your tutorial videos are posted on your blogs it’s time to watch a few and leave some comments!

Here’s what you need to do:

Part 1:

Watch 2 – 3 tutorials created by other grade 6 students (not in your class). Leave a 3-2-1 comment sharing your constructive feedback:

3 things you liked
2 things you learned
1 thing they could improve on
Make sure you remember which tutorials you commented on, because you will need to put links to those comments in your reflection blog post.

Part 2:

Once you have commented on 2 – 3 tutorials, add the third paragraph to your reflection:

What new ideas did you get that extended or pushed your thinking in new ways? (Think about the 2-3 tutorials you watched).

Once you have added that paragraph, check to make sure your reflection has:

Five paragraphs:

  1. Introduction (we did this in class)
  2. Connect (we did this in class)
  3. Extend
  4. Challenge (we did this in class)
  5. Conclusion (we did this in class)

The following items embedded into your post:

  1. Your video embedded (we did this in class)
  2. Your feedback survey embedded (we did this in class)
  3. Links to all of the tutorials you commented on (in the Extend paragraph).
  4. Your reflection in the Design category.

Once your reflection has all of those, make sure to publish and you’re done!

Hint:

Just in case you need them, here are all the questions for your paragraphs in your reflection:

  • Connect to the design specifications: How does your tutorial (and the process of creating your tutorial) demonstrate your design specifications? Did you change anything from your storyboard as you created your tutorial? If so, why?
  • What new ideas did you get that extended or pushed your thinking in new ways? (This may also included the 2-3 tutorials you watched for homework).
  • What is still challenging for you? What puzzles or questions do you still have?

To earn a 7 – 8:

Analyze

  • You commented on more than 2 other student blogs
  • All of your comments are detailed, meaningful and specific.

Reflect

  • You have included a complex and detailed reflection.
  • You have included many excellent details and specifics relating to your project.
  • All required elements are included (tutorial video, survey & links) plus additional visuals or links to enhance your post.
