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.

Welcome to 5th Grade!

My 5th grade year has begun. I have been looking forward to Philadelphia and so many more things. I think Philadelphia will be fun maybe. My favorite thing about rocketry was probably watching it go up in the air and probably building rocket. My least favorite thing about rocketry was maybe that it was really cold outside. My goal this year is to get better at all the things I’m not good at.
