We’ll be trying to guide you the best possible way so you successfully complete your MYP projects.

The tool we will be using is this blog, plus the MyOFS online homework, and posting workflows for our projects. Of course these workflows are very simplified, more like instructions or a plan for the lessons. Apologies for stretching the concept of workflows if that bothers you.

  2. Topic has to be selected and narrowed down
  3. 5 sources on your topic (they should help you build your context, define and describe your problem, and come up with your design specifications.

Next lesson’s work:

Write your

  1. Problem Definition
  2. Context of the problem (Why is it important to do a project about it?)
  3. Audience (who are you teaching about this issue?)
  4. Design Specifications (conditions, limitations, features of your final product)

Homework for next class:

  • Write the Ways of Testing the Design Specifications
  • Research the mode if you haven’t done so
  • Polish what you have done in class, if necessary.
  • Continue research. Find more useful sources of information of different types according to your rubric (to be linked to this post soon).

Your last class of next week is our deadline for the Investigation section. Do not talk about the specific application/mode/media here!
