Work To Do 23rd - 27th March

  • Read the feedback for your question 1 and question 2 drafts.
  • Complete final versions for both questions (both must be presented using a different creative format-look at the ten examples I posted for help).
  • Ensure your coursework is posted on your blog
  • Upload images from your photo shoot to Flickr (create a gallery and embed on your blog).
  • Save each layer of your magazine as a jpeg (to show how the project evolved). Do this for the cover, contents and double page spread. Compile the images on Photoshop and post to your blog.
  • Label every post correctly.
  • Account for any gaps in the blog.
  • Postdate new blog posts where appropriate.

AS Evaluation Questions (Monday 16th March - Friday 20th March)

This week's lessons will be given over to teaching and writing the evaluation questions. In class you will prepare your responses (look at previous student's blogs for help) so we can check that the content of your responses are up to standard. Once we have agreed that your work answers the question you can then demonstrate your creativity (an essential skill for AS and A2) by following the instructions below.

For the final 20 marks of the project, you must complete seven tasks on your blog, posting them in this order, with the question heading at the top of each task. Make sure you answer each question as well as producing the visual elements. 
  1. In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?
  2. How does your media product represent particular social groups?
  3. What kind of media institution might distribute your media product and why?
  4. Who would be the audience for your media product?
  5. How did you attract/address your audience?
  6. What have you learnt about technologies from the process of constructing this product?
  7. Looking back at your preliminary task, what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to the full product?
