Congratulations on putting together a really fine looking chronicle of this school year. Design-wise, this book is well thought out and communicated. I've had discussions with both the AM and PM classes and based on those discussions, below are some suggestions for next year's work on the book:
Seniors will be presenting their finished projects on April 30th and May 1st. We'll be finishing up project work in the next week. You should also be working on how you're going to present your portfolio and product over the next two weeks. Make sure that you have fixed your portfolios so that all filler text is either completed or deleted. You can see the judging criteria by downloading this document. Be certain that you hit every judging criteria. You're going to need to practice your presentation and have a clear map for the order of how you'll present your project. It should include a demonstration of a skill. It doesn't have to be complicated - keep it simple so that you could do it blindfolded.
All seniors will be expected to do practice presentations on April 25th and 26th. I'll be sitting down for one-on-one meetings to review your ePortfolios from April 23rd & 24th. Make sure that you're ready to show both your ePortfolio and your class portfolio at that time. Check for any spelling errors that will make you look unprofessional. In our field, spelling counts!
Congratulations everyone - we're getting some publicity for our school's QR Code interactive yearbook page! This story was released by the Intermediate Unit and is being picked up across the U.S. and abroad. The story has been published by over 4900 news sources including major news, radio and television stations. Here is a Google search of the press release. The title of the article is "Tech Students Pioneer QR Codes in Yearbook."
Update: the Philadelphia Inquirer ran a story on our use of QR codes. Click here for the story on the web.
