On a daily basis you will document your progress and learning in your Project Journal, but at the end of your engagement you will present a more polished multimedia style summary showing the highlights of your learning experiences publicly to your classmates or to your SmartLab facilitator privately. Your Project Presentation should include text, pictures, and video clips, to clearly demonstrate that you deserve an “A” for all the effort you put into learning and solving the problems you encountered during this engagement.
EVERY presentation will be unique. You might choose to make this Project Presentation page look like a blog, or you might “Insert” a Google slideshow presentation, or you might embed a Prezi. Exactly what tools you decide to use is up to you, but there are some basic elements (like a title page and your SMART objective) that should be in every presentation as outlined below. Just remember that the goal of your presentation should be to communicate effectively what you did and what you learned while working on this project.
----------- Project Presentation Guidelines ------------
You can also “Insert” short videos.
Here are some ideas of things you could include in your presentation to get you started.
Your Facilitator will tell you if there are any specific requirements for project presentations in your SmartLab.
