Remember - your personal project requires a knowledge attack on a topic. While you are investigating your topic, you should discover some interesting question that needs answering. You then need to plan your inquiry. Your audience needs to be identified - ask yourself "Who am I presenting my findings to?" Decide how to most interestingly present your final product. Use the technology we have in the room - plan to podcast if possible. You can use images and recorded voices and music.
The most important thing is, starting with an interesting, focused, open, fat question.
Second - research effectively, take notes in your own words [dot jot], and present your findings in a way that shows you have answered your question[s] and have used the iwrite software [with data projector], or the mp4 player [podcasting], or the internet [blogs, etc].
Be creative - remember, you must demonstrate above average intelligence, task commitment and creativity. Think outside the square and try to impress yourself and your audience.
