Emerging Technology Research Project (125 Points, Due Friday Oct 14th)
Topic research should be based on the emerging technologies in the field that you are covering. Topics should be something that you have a genuine interest in technically, something that applies to your current or future occupation, or something new that you’ve wanted to discover. You may choose a topic from the emerging technology links in the resource archive as a starting point, but be sure that you research and cite current articles beyond what is already listed.
Any articles, links, or videos referenced should be as current as possible- no older than 6 months in most cases. Your final documentation may be completed as a 3-4 page paper with at least 3 citations (double-spaced, normal margins, 12pt. font), as a screen recording with voice over powerpoints (5-8 minutes), or as some combination of written/recorded research. Check with me first if you intend to do something out of the ordinary. Cite your sources. Keep quotes to a minimum. Do not copy and paste or plagiarize in any way! Proofread closely, including spelling and grammar checking. This applies to papers and screen recordings. If you submit a written paper be sure your name is on the document, submit it as a Word document, and name the file using the following format: LastnameFI.docx. For example if your name is John Doe, the file will submitted as DoeJ.docx. If you submit a screen recording be sure to test the link to either the screencastomatic or youtube server prior to submission. Do not attach the video file. Include a brief shot of this assignment name and your login name on the blackboard site at the beginning of the video.
