Time:

Resources:
  • List possible resources/sources of inspiration to complete this project. Are there existing examples of the sort of project you want to complete? Has anyone else done a similar project in Thinkering Studio? What words did you search the wiki for when checking?
  • Who/what will be your "teacher"? (Outside expert, in class expert, book, video(s), website(s), Mr. Whitmer, experimenting, experience, etc.) Make sure your "teacher" is included in your steps.
  • How will you develop your PLN (personal learning network)?
Difficulties:
What parts of this project might be difficult? How do you expect to handle them?
How might your project fail? (Conduct a pre-mortem)
Sharing:
Sharing/Teaching/Paying It Forward
  • How will you share what you have learned/created/made/produced with others?
  • Who is your target audience?
Evaluation:
How will you/your group define the projects success? How will you know that your “good” is “good enough”?
How should we evaluate your success?
How will that be "visible" to others? (Demonstrate) Can your progress be measured throughout the project?
(Look at the Thinkering Studio Rubric for some ideas or possibly Rubistar.)
Design your own rubric.
“What are you making?” “Why are you making this?” and “Who is it for?”
