Thinkering Studio Project Proposal


Title:
Run a Youtube channel featuring PC builds and potential PC builds.
Member(s):
Rami and Jack.
Challenge:
What challenge/goal/question will drive your work? What are you creating/making/producing?
We will have to do a lot of editing at home for the Youtube channel, as we want to produce 1-3 videos a week and around 2 or 3 PC's will be featured.
Challenge Starters & Examples
Learning:
What do you expect to learn? / Why are you making this?
We both want to learn to use advanced video editing software, such as WonderShare Filmora, iMovie and Sony Vegas Pro.
How will you be challenged?
We will have to do a lot of research between choosing parts for our build guide videos and watching videos on how to use our editing software.
How will this stretch you? (Look at the Thinkering Studio Rubric for some ideas.)
Materials:
PC's built last quarter: $200 ish
Video editing software: Already owned (father's serial key) previously but around $1300.
Macbook and PC's
Money to build a computer monthly (Or quarterly)
Main Steps:
  • Outline the main steps to complete your project or provide a link to another site that has the steps. Below the link explain any additional steps you need to complete.
  • How will you document your process/progress beyond your journal entries?
  • If this is not an individual project, how will you work together so that all are learning/working equal to their abilities? Roles? Accountability?
  • Which inquiry or design process steps did you include?(Or the Creative Learning Spiral)


The steps we will need are simple. We have to gather footage of games, for the background of our videos. We intend on uploading 2-4 videos a week and they will be:
A PC Build Video (we show how to build the PC)
Recommended PC Builds
And benchmarking videos
Time:
Since we expect to make weekly content, it should and will last us the entirety of the quarter.
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)?

Youtube, friends who have experience and knowledge about PC's. Also, just watching PC Videos in general.
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)
The only difficult aspects of our project will be learning to use video editing software and growing the Youtube channel.
Sharing:
Sharing/Teaching/Paying It Forward
  • How will you share what you have learned/created/made/produced with others?
  • Who is your target audience? Anyone who'd like to build a PC.
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.

We want 15,000 channel views and around 500 subs.
“What are you making?” “Why are you making this?” and “Who is it for?”
Anybody who is interested in building a PC.
