Each report you write will be on a new emerging technology, related to a topic I have covered in class
Technology Report Guidelines
Topic:  Each report you write will be on a new emerging technology, related to a topic I have covered in class. Your report does not have to present a device or product I mentioned in class, but it does need to relate to the overall topic I have covered in class.  Please ask me about your specific research topic if you have any questions.
Formatting and Guidelines:  The finished report should be 3-6 pages and cover the sections listed below.  Please use 1.5 line spacing and 12 point Times New Roman Font.  Also, use 1 inch margins for the top, bottom, right and left sides.  Please make sure to spell check and read over your report for grammatical errors before submitting.
Citations:  You will be required to use at least 3 sources in your research report.  Make sure to include proper citations in your report. Your sources need to be cited in MLA or APA format.  You do not have to include a running header (which is usually used for most APA guidelines).  Generally, technical reports use APA citations, so that is the formatting style I have given examples for.  Either citation method will be acceptable, however – but you will need to pick one style and stick with it consistently throughout your report.  A good citation builder to use is located at:  http://www.lib.ncsu.edu/citationbuilder/.  NCSU’s citation builder allows you to fill in the information depending on the source you have.  After you enter the source information (such as author, publication, date accessed, etc.), it generates the citation for you in MLA or APA format.  This is the information you include in your References page at the end of your report.  Inline citations are required for the quotes and information that you directly reference from the list of sources in your references list at the end of your report.  In the inline APA citations, you must include any directly quoted information in quotations.  You can also paraphrase the information in you own words without using quotations, but you will still need to cite the reference.  In parathesis after the quote, you would include the author’s last name, followed by there first initial, followed by a comma, then the year of publication for that source.  Below is an example of an inline citation and the citation included in the References section at the end of your report.  The example quote was taken from an article entitled A Mobile Security Battle, written by S. Jain and was included in the 44th edition of a journal named Security.
-An example of the citation (from the citation builder) for the References section would be:
Jain, S. (2006). A mobile security battle. Security, 43(10), 66-66-67. Retrieved from http://search.proquest.com/docview/197794668?accountid=10639
 -An example of an inline citation in APA formatting would be: 
As mentioned in an article featured in the 44th edition of Security journal titled, A Mobile Security Battle, “the best place to start is with centrally managed policies, thus avoiding the kind of hodge-podge development of security practices that marked the original increase in mobility. Policies and centrally managed solutions are far more effective at safeguarding a network than the use of several different point-solutions that do not interact or overlap well” (Jain S., 2006). 
Report Sections:  Please include the following sections in your report. You may include others if you deem it necessary, but the following must be included.
Title Page:  This should be the title of your report, your name, and our course (CTS 287:  Emerging Technologies).  This information should be entered on separate lines, centered on the page horizontally and vertically and be on a seprate page from the rest of your report. THIS PAGE IS NOT INCLUDED IN YOUR PAGE COUNT, however.
Introduction:  The introduction should include a brief introduction of the emerging technology, your thesis statement (which is the purpose you are writing about it), and some other important background information on the technology you chose.  This can be 1-2 paragraphs.
Technology Platform and System Components:  The technology platform and system components section should include all the details and facts about the technology or device.  It should include the system specifications, what the technology device does, the manufacturer, pricing information, whether it is already released or plans to be released in the future, etc.  This is where you will describe the technology or device as much as you can. 
Application Environment:  The application environment section should include where the technology is used or can be used, the potential for industry usability, etc.  Some areas to focus on would be the target market of the technology as well, whether it is mobile or not, and whether it will most likely be used by consumers at home or employees on an industry level or both.
Technology Challenges:  The technology challenges section should include the shortcomings of the technology you researched.  Technology devices have plenty of pros, but there are also cons associated with their functionality, security threats, performance history, etc. You should also list how you think those shortcomings and challenges will impact the users of the technology, if users will buy it, and if it will have an impact on it being adopted as a long lasting device or technology. 
Future Predictions:  The future predictions section of your report should include where you see the technology or device in the next year, 5 years, and even further down the road.  It should also include a short conslusion of your report.

References:  This is where you will list the references or sources you used in your report. This should be on a separate page.

Consider what kind of artwork you would like to write about (you may write about a drawing, painting, print, photograph, sculpture or work of architecture)

This assignment is due at the end of the course, and it is broken down into 4 parts. We will focus on one part for every course unit. You should devote at least 2 hours per week on this assignment with a minimum of 14 hours total.

Before writing the term paper the student must have direct experience of a work of art by visiting an art museum or art gallery in NYC area. You may only write about works of art that you have seen during between October 26 through November . Don’t write about something that you remember. It must be a fresh experience. Each paper will consist of the following three components.

The student’s personal description and impressions of a single work of art based on an eye-witness account that is written at the time of the viewing.
Research conducted by the student to supply historical information about the artwork, the artist, and about the style, time period and culture associated with the art.
A formal, contextual and/or expressive analysis of the artwork.
This paper must be a minimum of three pages (Ariel 12 point font, double spaced – approx. 800 words). Specific instructions and information concerning the term paper is included with the assignment. Be sure to read all instructions before starting this paper.
The term paper will be graded as follows:
70% Content – How well you describe the artwork, identify and analyze key elements, and relate the artwork to the style. Your paper should be concise and structured.
30% Grammar and Clarity – Spelling, punctuation and sentence structure should be correct, and your thoughts should be organized and clear.




Part 1-Choosing the work – due November 1st

For part 1 of this assignment submit the following information:

Consider what kind of artwork you would like to write about (you may write about a drawing, painting, print, photograph, sculpture or work of architecture).
Tell me where you plan to see the work of art (give me the name of a museum or gallery, or the specific location of an architectural work)
Make a plan, and tell me how you will use your time during your visit to the work of art to make the most out of your direct experience (how will a first-hand experience of the artwork be more valuable than looking at pictures and information in a book or on the internet?).
Submit this assignment on Blackboard as a Microsoft Word document. It should be at least one page.

Part 2, Description- due November 8th

As per your plan in the last assignment, visit the location of the work of art that you will write about in your Art Event Paper. Make sure that you have read the instructions for this part of the assignment on Blackboard. You may want to print the document that lists the criteria for your writing your description. While you are there write a description of the work of art. In your own words, describe your reaction to seeing the work of art in person. How is it different than viewing it in a book or website? Be sure to write down all of the elements that are listed in the instructions for this part of the assignment as you see them. Submit this assignment on Blackboard as a Microsoft Word document. It should be at least one page in length.

Part 3 Outline – due November 15th


Take the plan that you created in part 1 of this assignment, the description that you wrote in part 2, and write an outline that shows how you intend to write your Event Paper. Remember that the finished paper must be three pages long. Make a list of categories that you will be researching, analyzing and writing about in your paper. You may refer to the list of suggestions that I have included in the instructions for this assignment. Break these categories down into subcategories that will take your plan from general notions to specific ideas. Remember, you do not have to research and write the details at this time, just create a game plan for your paper so that you can begin your research. This assignment does not have to follow any formal rules of outlining, but I should be able to evaluate the main ideas and structure of your paper. Submit this assignment on Blackboard as a Microsoft Word document. It should be at least one page in length.

Part 4 Final Submission – due November 22nd

Use the outline that you wrote in part 3 of this assignment. You may start your paper with the description that you wrote in part 2, but you must now add information that you find through researching your subject. You may discuss anything in your paper that relates to your work of art in some way. For instance, your paper may include historical data about the time and place where the work was created, a formal, contextual or expressive analysis of the artwork, biographical information about the artist or the subject, a discussion of the materials and methods used by the artist, or any stories or information that relates to the subject matter of the work. However, make sure that you are focusing on the work of art that you saw. For example, if you are writing about a statue of George Washington, you may include information about who Washington was, what he did, and why he is important. But don’t write exclusively about George Washington. Make sure that you are writing about the statue of George Washington that you saw. What you submit should be a rough draft. This means, you are submitting a paper that is full of information and ideas, but is not so concerned with grammar and structure. Just try to gather as much as you can so that you have something to organize and develop later. Submit this assignment on Blackboard as a Microsoft Word document. For a rough draft it is better to have more than the required amount of pages, so try to submit at least three pages for this assignment.

Create a bibliography page that lists all of the sources of information that you used to write your paper. List only those that relate to information that is actually presented in your paper. Also, within the body of your paper, insert footnotes that show exactly where in your paper you present information from each of the sources listed in your bibliography. Use the MLA style (https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/01/).

Submit this assignment on Blackboard as a Microsoft Word document. Your paper should now be at least four pages in length (you will now have an extra page for your bibliography).
