Assessment Details The Digital Revolution is not limited to the past – we should expect changes to continue for the foreseeable future. The aim of this assessment is for you to explore how IT might change a particular industry in the future, based on current trends and upcoming technologies. For this assignment, you need to create a short video. There are many different tools available to help do this; Windows Movie Maker is available in the labs. It is also acceptable to perform a single-take video using a smart device or webcam. Your topic must be automatically generated, based on your student ID. Please use the Topic Generator link in Moodle, and choose only one of the topics available. Topics are of the form: “The potential impact of {Technology} on {Industry or Activity}”. Not all options are strictly technologies – some are applications of technology CRICOS Provider No. 00103D Assessment Task – Video and Disruption Report.docx Page 2 of 6 Preliminaries Create an ePortfolio page which you will use to submit your work. Make sure you keep the page private – you do not need to set the visibility of your ePortfolio to public for this assessment task. Access the Topic Generator through Moodle, and choose one of the available topics. Part one – Research The first step to creating your video and report is to explore both the technology and the industry, to understand the potential impacts. Write a short description of the technology and the industry (150-300 words each), and add both to your ePortfolio page. You may use any relevant sources, including websites, blogs, tweets, journal articles and textbooks. Ensure you reference any sources appropriately. Part two – Brainstorming For your topic, list at least three ways the technology may change or disrupt the industry. Include this list on your ePortfolio page. If you are having trouble, remember that this is a creative task – it’s ok for your ideas to be 10 or 30 years in the future. The more you can come up with at this stage the better, even if you think your ideas are completely implausible. Some hints: • Consider the impact of the technology on the people in the industry; will it make their lives easier or harder? • Can you draw parallels to other industries where your technology may have had impact? • Are there other technologies you’re aware of that might, together with your chosen technology, have a stronger combined impact? • Creative thinking requires a dedicated block of time and the freedom to play around with ideas. Don’t leave it to the last minute! Once you have brainstormed a number of impacts, choose one to focus on for the next two assignment parts. Review the rest of this assignment specification before choosing.
