InĀ  nutshell, these are the common mistakes students do in the Creation stage of their MYP Computer Technology projects:

  • The journal entries are not dated. Each journal entry should start with the date, as this will make things easier for you when you evaluate the plan and your personal performance.
  • The screenshots are small, generic, and show you doing some work on the computer. Your screenshots should clearly show how you created your product. Therefore, the screenshots should show your work with the specific application(s) that you used to put your product toghether.
  • The screenshots show how you do the same things over and over. You do not need to show the same simple procedures more than once. Say, you show in three screenshots how to insert an image into a web page. You may later say that you used the same steps shown in journal entry xx/xx/xx to insert the other images as well.
  • Some students forget that the journal shows the implementation of the plan. Check back with your plan and compare your progress. Any differences between what you planned to do, and when, should be shown somewhere. Justify them and (if appropriate) say what you will do to keep your deadlines (interim and final).
  • Did you make any modifications as you were creating the product? Document any modifications to your (design) product. Justify them clearly.

I hope this helps you improve the quality of your work.
