On page 3 is a list of every student in the class.  Look for your name and look for your subject.

You are to create a video and a PowerPoint Presentation.  The video is worth 60% of your project grade and your presentation 40%.   (See Rubrics at the end of the document)

You will need to go to and sign-up for a free account.  There are multiple video samples and tutorials on how to use the site.  There is a limit of 30 seconds for the free account.  You MUST use up the entire 30 seconds for your video.

You will be given a Subject or a Computer Pioneer

You are to research your subject and give me a history of how that subject has evolved technologically since it was created.

DO NOT break out the subjects.  If you have MUSIC, don’t tell me about rock.  I’m not interested in the Genre.  I’m interested how music started to where it is now, digital.

The same for all other subjects; I do not need to know how to use it or other explanations.  How has it evolved from when it first started to where it is NOW?

If you have a pioneer in technology, tell me about the person.  What is he/she credited with inventing/pioneering?  Is the person alive today? If so, what is he/she doing now?  How has this persons concept/invention evolved in today’s market?

For the Video and the PowerPoint you must:
•    Research your subject
•    Find photographs
o    A progression of how it has evolved

Below are the criteria for both the Video and the PowerPoint presentation.

o    Use key words and/or phrases to make your point
