TAP Stage Eight: DO IT!!!

The best piece of advice I received as I prepared The Awesome Project was simple: get off your keister and do it. Don’t wait.

I had everything in place that you did. I had done my research (which you completed in Stage Two and Three). I had thought through the key design principles (which you did in Stage Four). I had read the article from Katie Day which you read in Stage Five, and I had already developed my Google Spreadsheet proficiency to do what I shared with you in Stage Six. Throughout the whole process I had been working with colleagues, administration, and learning support staff (which you did in each of the Community Stages). All that I had left was to formally introduce the project to students, parents, and administrators (which you just completed in Stage Seven). I just needed to start it.

So there you have it. Start your version of The Awesome Project. Start delivering the Awesome!

Assessment:

No assessment necessary for this final section. If you would like to, you can post in the comments section a link to the public face of your own Awesome Project, or you can post it over at Genius Hour.

Normally online courses reward learners with a digital badge that they can post on their own backpack. But since I don’t really expect a whole lot (read: any) traffic here, let alone anyone to complete the course, I haven’t set that up yet. If you make it all the way through and complete each activity and assessment, I’ll figure out a way to make that happen, I promise!
