Evaluation:
How will you define the projects success? I will try to make a before and after of my improvement of NBA edit making How will you know that your “good” is “good enough”? I will see what my friends think about my videos (youtube comments)
How should we evaluate your success?
Telling me what else I could work on to improve my videos even better
How will that be "visible" to others? I will show my friends a before and after of improvement (Demonstrate) Can your progress be measured throughout the project? Yes, they can see how much I learned in improving edits if I show them each one of my videos
“What are you making? NBA basketball edits” “Why are you making this?” Because I enjoy basketball and I think I will learn in this project and enjoy this project and “Who is it for?” I will post it online so anyone, but friends and family first
