Thinkering Studio Project Proposal

Basketball Tutorials
Clayton and Darryl
What challenge/goal/question will drive your work? Our goal is to inform people about how to do more advanced moves like you see on TV. We will inform them by teaching them through informational videos that explain the right way to perform the move.
What do you expect to learn? We expect to learn how to use different camera angles and learning how to do other basketball moves. The things that we will be teaching are how to perform certain moves seen on TV
How will you be challenged? We will be challenged by trying to record everything we do.
How will this stretch you? This will stretch us because we have never tried to film each other playing basketball before. We will work on our video skills before we move on to recording basketball skills.
  • Camera
  • Tripod
  • Basketball
  • Mac for editing.
Main Steps:
  • First step is getting all of the materials. Second step figure out where we will record, 3rd step is filming the videas, 4th step is editing on a mac, 5th step is uploading to YouTube.
How will you document your process/progress beyond your journal entries? We will post weekly videos about the basketball tips
If this is not an individual project, how will you work together so that all are learning/working equal to their abilities? Roles? Accountability? One person can film while the other can explain the tips, and we can rotate.
How long do you expect this project to take? Till the end of the year.
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. There is a YouTube account called IheartbasketballTV. They explain moves NBA players moves like we will be doing. They have 230,000 subscribers and they know what they are doing.
How will you develop your PLN (personal learning network)? A quiet learning environment with very little distractions.
What parts of this project might be difficult? How do you expect to handle them? Filming what we are doing would probably be the most difficult. We expect to handle them by using a tripod will help us with a lot of our recording
Sharing/Teaching/Paying It Forward - How will you share what you have learned with others? Who is your target audience? We plan to share on YouTube and are target audience is anyone that has an interest in getting better at basketball
How will you/your group define the projects success? How should we evaluate your success? How will that be "visible" to others? (Demonstrate) Can your progress be measured throughout the project? We will define our success if people look at our videos and learn valuable tips from them.
