Week 12 Peer Review Exercise

Suggest edits to your classmates’ outlines. Look for incorrect spelling, grammar, and punctuation, but also edit for clarity, succinctness, and completeness (copy editing). Also provide feedback and suggestions as you would during an in-progress presentation! Drafts are as follows:

After you finish editing/providing feedback on your classmates’ drafts, you may use the rest of class time to work on your final projects.

During this class I’ll be meeting with you 1-1 on the following schedule:

  • 9:50-10 – whomever shows up first
  • 10:00 Rhea
  • 10:08 Zihan
  • 10:16 Wei
  • 10:24 André
  • 10:32 Eugenia
  • 10:40 Micah
  • 10:48 Xuan
  • 10:56 Tzu-Ching
  • 11:02 Antya
  • 11:10 Sophie
  • 11:18 PA
  • 11:26 Yangying
  • 11:34 Hannah
  • 11:42 Carly
  • 11:50 Oomung
  • 11:58 Gustav
  • 12:06 Ellen
  • 12:14 Ben
  • 12:22 John
  • 12:30 Evie
  • 12:38 catch up if running behind
  • 12:46 regroup for class conclusion

Week 11 Homework

Great job on your project brainstorms and wifi work, folks! For homework, please:

  • Write an outline for your project tutorial, including an introductory paragraph describing the use case, a materials/tools list, and single sentences describing each likely step. If you are able, write more by fleshing out each step with instructions. Please write with complete sentences (except your materials/tools list) and do your best with grammar and punctuation. We will be peer-reviewing these in class next week, so the more you bring with you to class, the more feedback/proofreading you will get. We’ll be using Google Docs’ suggested edits tool, so put your draft into a Google Doc and then set the sharing settings to “anyone with the link can comment” before copying the link into a blog post here, due Monday by 6pm (in the Works in Progress/Proposals category).
  • Shop for any components you need for your final projects– email me if you need help figuring out what components to use. You may need to order stuff online, so do it as soon as possible.
  • Continue to prototype with your Arduino and/or Huzzah board to work on your final project. We’ll be meeting 1-1 next week, so I hope you’ll bring some progress with you to discuss. This will look different for each of your projects. Please feel free to email me to discuss sooner or work through any snags you encounter along your prototyping journey.

Week 10 Homework

For homework this week, please start brainstorming for your final project. The only requirements are that is uses Arduino and expresses your interests in problem solving or novel interaction design. It does not need to connect to the Internet, but many of you will probably want to do so!

Please complete the first three lessons of the Internet of Things class to set up your Huzzah ESP8266 and get an LED blinking.

Please make a blog post with three ideas/sketches, and also include a summary of your class progress with a photo or video. One blog post is due per student by Monday 11/13 at 6pm. We will be working in class next week with your Huzzah ESP8266 boards, so bring all your Arduino gear and questions!

Week 9 Homework

Finish a “refined rough prototype” version of your sensor/switch project, and post it’s documentation to the blog by 6pm Monday Nov 6! Include:

  • Your group members’ names
  • What the ideal finished version of this product would be like/who’s it for
  • The technical steps you took to achieve your prototype (pics and video are great!)
  • What you would do next/differently if given more time on this project
  • What you learned by building this project (Stronger confidence with code? Troubleshooting methods? Interaction design considerations?
  • Post your code
