DHHS Music Technology Project #8
The Mini-Research Prezi Project

The mini-research project gives students an opportunity to conduct research on a topic that directly relates to music technology. This project not only serves as an chance to learn more about a specific topic, but the chance to learn a new technology, a Prezi. This Prezi will show you how your own Prezi might be organized with your research and images.
The History
For this section you will need to have at least 5 important facts and a minimum of 4 pictures.
You might consider creating a timeline to show your history.
If your topic has been around for along time, you want to ensure you hit on key points in your presentation.
Consider when you topic was first introduced to the world - or when important contributions to music were made through your topic.
You can include your 4 images on the same frame with your text as you have seen or you can consider showing images independently, to stress their importance.
Important Facts/Information
In this section you are going to present 4 facts/information that is pertinent to your topic. These facts should be meaningful information that your audience can learn from.

You will also include 3 or more pictures/images in this section.
Good research comes when you give yourself plenty of time to learn about your topic. You should not collect all of your information in a single class period or will you most likely miss out on important facts that would make your research more meaningful.
You should plan your search strategy. Simply typing in your research topic is good for a first level search. But you will need to go further and consider including key words in your search such as "history" "people" "interesting" "facts" and other terms to help you find meaningful information.
Document your search. You should not obtain information without writing down it's source. By writing down where you learned your information you are not only able to return to it, but you are required to use it in your references at the end of your presentation. Keep track of where you learned information from and remember you need to have 6 or more references for you presentation. Wikipedia will not be, and should not be your only source of information.
Interesting Facts/Information
The interesting facts/information section should help to draw your audience in. If, after learning some history and important facts, they are not bought into your topic, this is where you draw them in. Find information that makes them want to learn more and peaks their interest in the topic.

You will need 3 or more pictures in this section.
The foundation of effective research is to internalize a strong vision of what you want to achieve, to work proactively towards that vision, taking personal responsibility for successes and failures.
Research involves two main aspects, self-development and the creative process of research. There is a common problem of achieving balance between the two, and I believe it is a common and significant mistake to concentrate too much on one aspect and to
exclude the other.
Students should remember that they'll retain information and remember better (and understand much better) if you try and re-organize the material you’ve learned in your own way. This project will help you do just that!
The People
This section will focus on the important people who directly affected your topic. They could be the creator, the person who redeveloped your topic, the person who made it well known, put it on the map or even the person who never got credit, because they were the original person who thought up the topic, but couldn't or didn't develop it further.

You will need 3 images/pictures for this section.
Aristotle was one of the early figures who developed the scientific method.
Aristotle was a Greek philosopher and polymath, a student of Plato and teacher of Alexander the Great. His writings cover many subjects, including physics, metaphysics, poetry, theater, music, logic, rhetoric, linguistics, politics, government, ethics, biology, and zoology.
Leopold von Ranke was a German historian and a founder of modern source-based history. Ranke was probably the most important historian to shape historical profession as it emerged in Europe and the United States in the late 19th century.

He was able to implement the seminar teaching method in his classroom, and focused on archival research and analysis of historical documents.

Ranke set the standards for much of later historical writing, introducing such ideas as reliance on primary sources, an emphasis on narrative history and especially international politics.
Hardware for Research
This section will include any specific hardware or artists that directly relate to your topic. You will focus on one or the other depending on what your topic is. This prezi is giving you an overview of this whole project so you will see hardware you will use for your research.

This section will also have 3 or more images/pictures.
The Internet.

What is the best way to search the Internet?

1. Narrow your topic and its description; identify and pull out key words, phrases and categories
2. Use a search engine: does it contain a directory of topics?
3. Find the best combination of key words to locate information you need;
Enter these in the search engine
4. Get assistance from your local research librarian, teacher or a peer.
5. Refer to known, recommended, expert, or reviewed web sites
6. Refer to professional portals that may have directories or collections by topic.
7.If there are too many web sites, add more keywords. If there are too few options, narrow/delete some keywords,or substitute other key words
8. Review the first pages returned:
9. If these are not helpful, review your key words for a better description
10. Use advanced search options in search engines.
An outline helps you organize a complex project, and is best viewed as a research tool. The outline keeps you organized by keeping you focused, pointing out gaps in your collection of data and literature review, and identifying the structure of your argument.
