Lesson Points: 13 Aug

Hello All,

Main points for today's lesson:

1. Digital Poster
- think from the perspective of a producer / entrepreneur: How can I attract people to read / find out more about my product
- recall what was taught about effective posters, google related advertisements to find an effective way to 'sell' your product using the poster.
- take an actual photo of your prototype (rather than copy / pasting a picture)
- you may use Piktochart, etc to help design your digital poster.
- only still poster (ie. no animations). You will have an opportunity to create a commercial (TV-type advertisement) in Sec 2.

2. Information for IE Group Presentation 
  • 8 min presentation, 2 min Q&A, all students must have enough presentation time
  • Mode - Keynote, Prezi, Video, Animation, 3D Modelling, etc.
  • Use the rubrics to guide you (Group member names / Group Name / Product Name on first slide) 
  • Draft submission - Week 7
  • Final Submission - Week 8

Information on slides:

  • Problem, Underlying Causes (UC), Root Causes (RC)
  • Research Findings on Problems, UC, RC, Solutions
  • Solution - criteria, and why the team decided to choose this solution over others
  • Model, Prototype, Detailed Diagram of Innovative Product
  • Value Proposition for the Product (why should the customer buy this product?
  • Digital Poster


By the upcoming lesson on Monday, 18 August, you should have:
  • Discussed how you want to organise the slides
  • Who to be in-charge of which portion of the slides
  • When it must be completed so that it can be put together to ensure it is coherent and flow, and make changes if necessary
  • Group Leaders to share this document to Mr. Hiap (using the same CPS spreadsheet.
We will go through the draft slides on Monday, 18 August.

Note:
If a group member is absent, the group is still scheduled to present. No changes allowed for the presentation schedule (to be informed next lesson).





Sunday, 3 August 2014

Red Dot Museum - Locken

Group Name: Locken
Class: S1-02

Full Names: Dominic Hong, Wonk Kang, Elgin Ng Jun Hao, Joshua Yew Jek Yong, Joel Tio Jin Hon

Observation:
-       Can you find examples of SCAMPER from the exhibits (represent each alphabet of SCAMPER with photographs as evidence)?
- Substitute
We saw a clock which substituted words for numbers.
- Combine
We saw a combination of baby bottles and trees, forming a unique piece of artwork.
- Adapt
We saw a lamp that adapted to the fact that it may be knocked over or crushed. This lamp is not easily knocked over and can be compressed.
- Modify
We saw a chair with the shape of the Google Drive logo. The chair looks nice and yet still can serve its purpose.(Form follows function)
- Put to other use
As from above, we saw many baby milk bottles held up by thin black rods that formed an artwork.
- Eliminate
There was a picture shown on Morph Adaptive Sole. They eliminated the shoe and showed that you can "wear" this sole without the shoe and still can be able to run.
- Rearrange
We saw a lamp that rearranged the light bulbs such that it looked like a tree.


Learn From It:
-       Name one thing (per group member) that you have learnt from the designs that you have seen in Red Dot Museum.
Simplicity is better than complexity.
Observing the world and applying it.
Efficiency of objects is key
Problems can always be solved
Multiple functions changes an object
Application
-       Take a picture of the design(s) that your group likes most and explain how it relates to the project that your group will be working on.



We have been working on how to prevent oil spillage from a pan.
These pictures all teach us a lesson and gives us criterias that we can choose from.

The first picture shows that there may be an existing product that is not used for that specific purpose.(In the picture it shows that words are not used in clocks but can be represented through words)

The second picture shows that the product must be flexible in a sense that it needs to be able to withstand the, in our case is heat and oil, forces that may act on it.

The third picture shows that it should have multiple purposes for it to be sellable.

The last picture shows that the design of the object should not remove any perks offered.

Digital Poster

Hello All,

Before you create an effective (digital) poster, you will need to know the purpose of the poster - create publicity / information of how the product is used, etc?

Basically, it is to communicate a message.

To communicate: i) to change behaviour, ii) to get action, iii) to ensure understanding, iv) to persuade, v) to get and give information.

Information needed for the digital poster:

  • What is this product?
  • Why do we need this product?
  • How is this product better?
  • How will this product benefit me?
Poster Design:

1. Original - Something eye-catching that makes the public want to stop and read it (color, pictures, drawings, unusual shape, etc.)
2. Simple - Put 1-2 basic points on each poster.
3. Catchy - Use color for emphasis, variety, and to get and hold attention.  But use colors sparingly.
4. Organized - Make your points easy to read and follow.
5. Readable - If using more than 5-6 words, use both capital and lower case letters rather than only capitals.

What must be in the poster?
1. ‘Eye catching’ title/statement at the top of the poster
2. Problem Statement
3. Features and comparative advantage(s) of product
4. How does it benefit the customers?
5. Group Name with Group Members Name at the Bottom Right Hand Corner
6. Submission: Draft - T3W5, Final Version - T3W6

Group Leaders may share their group digital poster to me early for feedback. Note that submissions must include the above points.
