The project has an assigned topic. See the subject assignments on the last page. You are to create a PowerPoint Presentation (75%) and a video (25%). You will be given either a Pioneer in the Computer/IT field or an object that has evolved technologically through the years. PIONEERS If assigned a pioneer, tell me about this person. What did this person do to become a pioneer? Did he/she invent something? What did they invent? What is the person doing now? What has this person accomplished? Be thorough with the subject. SUBJECT If assigned a subject tell me how this object or technology has changed. Tell me how it has evolved through the years. Tell me how it started and where it is now. Please DO NOT only submit pictures of its changes, TELL me what has changed. Tell me how it has changed, improved and possibly where we might go in the future with this object. Be sure to be true to the subject and don’t go off topic. I DO NOT need to know how Pacemakers work or what a sonogram machine is used for. I am interested in the EVOLUTION of the product. For example, MUSIC: Tell me how we’ve come to the digital recordings or digital instruments that we have now. I don’t need to know about a specific GENRE like Rock, Regetton, Salsa or Classical music.
