Assessment 2 Rubric – Seminar Presentation 20%
Students are allocated a company that specializes in microchipping people with embedded technologies such as radio-frequency identification chips, near-field communication chips and more. The student is to make a presentation as if they were a business developer for the company they have been allocated, describing their key products (up to 3), how they are used (real cases if possible), their purported benefits and relevant socio-technical issues. Aspects such as costs, the method of implantation, regulations and laws, and future applications should be addressed. The student has 10 minutes to deliver their seminar presentation (only 7 powerpoint slides), and 5 minutes of question time. This presentation requires the student to: 1. Deliver the presentation orally; 2. Submit their presentation slides in softcopy; 3. Submit associated documentation that is web referenced.
