10/06 & 10/9

CORE TOPIC

  • Identify the importance and use of Conceptual Modelling 

ESSENTIAL IDEA/OBJECTIVES

  • conceptual model originates in the mind and its primary purpose is to outline the principles and basic functions of a design or system. 

CLASS ACTIVITIES

  • Introduction to modeling
    • The (Codega modified) Marshmallow Challenge
      • You have 18 minutes to create the highest free standing structure out of 20 sticks of spaghetti, one yard of tape, one yard of string, and one marshmallow (which goes on top).
      • We will measure to see who has the highest one that remains standing.
    • Watch the TED Talk about the marshmallow challenge
    •  
    • After the first round we will do it again, but this time you must take 5 minutes to first reflect on what went well and what could be improved and THEN create a NAPKIN sketch of your new design.  After that time you will build it again, this time with only 13 minutes. 
    • We will measure again.  The winning group will be the team that has the highest TOTAL height (remember, only buildings that remain standing will count towards the total) will get the  remaining marshmallows.
  • Class Notes on Conceptual Modelling.
  • HOMEWORK 
    • Have a nice weekend and GO COCKS!

Essential Idea

  • Innovations take time to diffuse into a target audience

  • Quick review of the PRODUCT LIFE CYCLE!
  • Next, let's look at HOW innovations spread/diffuse into the market place:
    • Create your own graphic organizer that contains the following information:
      • Define the five main parts of Rodgers Characteristics (relative advantage, compatibility, complexity, observability, trialability)
      • Describe the four main elements that influence the spread of new ideas (innovation, communication channels, time, and a social system);
      • Explain how social media influences the diffusion of an innovation;
      • Identify and then describe categories of consumers in relation to technology adoption;
      • Provide an example of a company having to change/alter a product to gain acceptance in a foreign market
    • Here are some resources to help with this:
    • The content is easily found in the links above -- what I'm really looking for here is can you put it together in an interesting, cohesive, creative way that will help you remember the information!!  This is a design class after all... 

HOMEWORK

8/24 & 8/25 

  • You will introduce yourselves to me and to one another, but there is a catch:
    • You will have 3 hours to design and then create anything you want that captures the essence of you
    • The project MUST contain the following elements (point value is included in the parentheses):
    1. Your design can take any form but CREATIVITY is paramount.  This class will require you to think creatively to solve complex problems on an almost daily basis so why not see if you measure up.  By interacting with it (whatever that means for your design) Codega must get a sense of who you are.  There is a degree of subjectivity to this therefore a formal grade will not be assigned until after the presentations are given (75 points)
      1. If this sounds unreasonable to you please reconsider taking this class -- HL Geography and HL Bio are looking for more students!
      2. This part will be turned in on Thursday at the end of class and will be presented to Codega and the class on Monday -- NO EXTENSIONS! 
    2. You must provide a WRITTEN explanation of your thought process  -- how did you come up with your idea (hint: it didn't just pop into your head) (20 points)
    3. Length -- as long as you think it should be...
    4. Included any notes, sketches, or brainstorming that you did in the design phase (just attach it to the written document) 
    5. The Presentation (5 points)
    6. Basically take no more than 1 minute to explain your project. 
    • You can work on this at home BUT Codega MUST see you working on it in class (progress will be recorded as a daily grade) 
    • THIS PROJECT IS INTENTIONALLY VAGUE!
    • This will count as your first test grade.

 

 

8/22 and 8/23

  • Reintroductions/introductions 
  • Codega's expectations:
    • You're an IB kid now...if I have to call home, for any reason, do yourself a favor and consider becoming a German Journeyman -- learn a trade, travel the country exchanging your labor for room and board, wear these goofy outfits...Interested in hearing more?  Read this article from the NYTimes!!! 
    •  
  • Intro to Design Technology (aka IB PROBLEM SOLVING)
    • Take a look at a few images

        • What does that mean?
      •
