Sample ITGS Projects
There are six sample projects posted in the Teacher Support Material on the OCC as part of the resource material.
Two of the projects are not showing all of their features (Example 1 Keith Findlater Photography, Example 6: Spanish in Vienna) in the TSM.
The full version of Spanish in Vienna can be found below.
These project examples and also additional project examples are provided below.
Example 1: Keith Findlater Photography
The animation is missing when opening images on the TSM on the OCC.
Teachers have access to the zipped file from the OCC must be used when viewing the product.
Students need to be reminded about IB Academic Honesty policy and that this exemplar is not be be copied.
Example 6: Spanish in Vienna with Music
This is the original WITH music.

The advanced skills were:
filming of the digital footage with appropriate lighting, background and sound recording to create the best footage possible for the editing process. This included the settings on the camera, use of external microphones and tripod.
editing of the video footage to achieve a professional-like quality as the Nike commercial including creating effects of speeding up actions, multiple shots in the basket, fast dribbling, etc.
timing of music to video
Additional features (not advanced)
animation used in titling
quick transitions to keep the action of the film flowing
use of multiple tracks for sound and music
sufficient length to deliver the content required
Visualizing sort algorithms
The Computer Science teacher requires a visual way that students can observe and understand how the various sorting algorithms function. A website using java applets and providing both a description and algorithms for the various sorting methods was developed by a student who was concurrently taking both ITGS and Computer Science. The use of a programming language is not taught in ITGS, but can be used in the development of an ITGS project.
