After tallying up the scores and and analyzing the results of the Student Evaluation Spreadsheet, it was decided that “Theseus and the Minotaur” was your favorite video. To see how your video ranked, check out the chart below. (Keep in mind that “Hammurabi’s Code” was not completely finished) The words are a little hard to read, but all you have to do is click on the image and magnify it a little.
As you finish your project, you must grade your fellow group members. Please click on the link below to access the group member survey. Be as honest as possible. Each member of the group must take the survey and answer the questions for the other members of the group.
We have two more secure days (not sure if we can get the lab next week) to work on this stop motion project. I think we can get it done. Most of you have your pictures in order. All we’ll need to do is add the narration for the scene. Hopefully, we can do that without tech. problems in the compy lab.
I heard it through the grapevine that our slow computer problems could be solved, but I’m not holding my breathe.
Second day in the computer lab. The projects seem to be going fine. The one issue we had was the freezing of some computers. Unfortunately, sometimes that happens. The only thing we can do is deal with it and SAVE OUR WORK ALL THE TIME. This is the most important concept. SAVE, SAVE, SAVE! CTRL + S is all it takes. Learn it, live it, love it.
On another upsetting note…I will not be in class tomorrow. We will take a short break from the project and continue in the computer lab on Thursday.
After a bit of a hectic day in the computer lab, we have finally started piecing together our stop-motion videos. We’ll be in the lab all week working with Windows Movie Maker. Hopefully, we won’t have any major issues.
One issue I foresee is the size of the actual picture file. I think some of them are too big. This will cause our already slow computers to act slower. I might be able to fix this problem. I’m going to go in and resize all of your pictures. Although it is a little more work on my part, I think it will relieve any headaches this week.
All week, we’ll be in the computer lab uploading our pictures and piecing them together in Windows Movie Maker. Later on in the week, you guys will start narrating your script. If there is time and you are motivated, you guys can add cool sound effects or background music to your video.
All videos must be exported by Friday.
