Capstone – Working On My Product – #6

Hi! Welcome to Samara’s world today I’m talking about capstone. In capstone you can have a slide show to talk about your topic and also thats what Im talking about.

If you don’t know my topic is assistive technology.

I’m presenting a TEDtalk, which is a slideshow with optional slides. The time has to be 5:00 to 6:00 minutes (you can go over the time).

I chose a TEDtalk because it has the most amount of time and so then I can explain everything in detail. I was going to do an ignite but my I saw what a TEDtalk was then I got interested in a TEDtalk.

To start my script you need a script organizer and for that you needed paragraphs. The paragraphs are for answering my sub questions. The script organizers was writing down the things you want to say, time and the picture for the slide.

The slides were easier than making the script because the script has the slide pictures that you want to add.

The big challenge for me was memorizing my script because their was so much to do.

That it.  Bye : )

Capstone – Answering My Main Question – #5

Hi! Welcome back to Samara’s World. Today and again I’m going to talk about capstone. For capstone you need a topic and a main question with sub questions.

Main question is, How has the design and function of assistive technology changed over time?

My answer, Alexander Graham Bell was thinking about creating a hearing aid because his wife lost her hearing. It was really sad for him so he tried to create one, but he falled. So he tried and tried, and gave up. One of his friends heard Ludwig Van, heard about his struggle and made the first hearing device the audio bone. Alexander got so amazed that he tried again and he made the first portable hearing aid. That was a long time ago in 1870s. Now hearing aids and FM monitor are so high tech.

That’s it come back to learn more about capstone.

Capstone – Site Visit – #4

Capstone – Interview – #3

Hello and welcome back to Samara’s world, today I’m going to talk about Capstone. In my capstone we all have to get a interview and that’s what I’m to talk about.

I interviewed Ms.G. It was fun, one reason why it was fun is because I knew her and the second reason is I knew her, she used to work with my mom and she works with me now. The hardest part about interviewing someone is, you don’t know who the person is or anything, but for me it was easy.

I asked her question like, how long have you been work?, what is your favorite part and more.

I also learned a lot more than I needed and that was perfect.

That is it.

Next site visit (Capstone)
