YOU ARE NOT SO SMART Project

You-are-not-so-smart

I have already posted about this amazing book, based on a blog, earlier this summer

http://ljatok13.posterous.com/summer-post-22-you-are-not-so-smart

As part of our REASONING UNIT (Reasoning as a Way of Knowing), we’ll be exploring several chapters within our “TOK Tribes”, and then creating short films highlighting the important concepts.

1. Each Tribe member will get a copy of the chapter to read and highlight.

2. Group members will create a threaded conversation in Diigo (Group DP2) to discuss important points and brainstorm ideas for the film.

3. There are a couple of NEW TECH TOOLS you could use to create a short film (although any style is ok)

WeVideo (online in-the-cloud collaborative video editing)

PowToons (see tutorials here)

Annotated Interactive YouTube or Choose Your Own Adventure YouTube

4. SPECS: 

a. you must cover all the important concepts and points

b. you must disclose the major “misconception” and the “truth” at least once.

c. you must end with “and this is why ‘YOU ARE NOT SO SMART‘”
