20% Project: Independent Work Day

October 30, 2013 § Leave a comment

You should submit your two creativity cases to your portfolio at the beginning of your class today.


Wait, we do not meet in class today!


Still, your assignments are due.


Now, you will spend at least two hours working on your 20% project on your own. I know it is hard sometimes to motivate yourself to do something that is not very interesting to you. It is your job to make this project interesting. I really want you to learn something that you value.You have freedom as well as responsibility to do so. Hope you take this opportunity to learn, create, and share.

Everybody is at a different stage with his or her 20%. Ideally, you should you have three blog postings made and you should know pretty well about your topic. You are not quite there yet? Don’t panic. You have a month of November. It is time to get serious about this.

Wherever you are at this point, start a new blog post.

In your new blog post, address the following questions:

Progress check

  • What have you learned so far and how are you documenting what you’ve learned?
  • What else do you need to know more about?
  • What else would you like to do to learn about the topic?
  • How does your project relate with what we are talking about in class?

Target audience

  • Who will benefit from what you learn through your 20% project?
  • With whom would you like to share what you learn through your 20% project?
  • What are their characteristics?
  • What should you consider about their characteristics to effectively share the information?


  • What are some effective way to communicate your findings with your target audience?
  • What mode of delivery will best represent your findings? Is it an informative website (Weebly.com)? Online poster (Gloster.com, padlet.com) , storytelling (Storybird.com), a video, or a Facebook group?
  • What does your product should look like?
  • What information should it contain? How will you deliver the information?


At the conclusion of your independent work day, please complete this form to let me know where you stand. Enjoy fall break!
