Write a research paper outlining the definition of technology and computer literacy.Project Overview The course final project is designed for you to apply the software application skills you acquired during the term. For this project, you will use all four of the Microsoft Office applications to create a unified project on a single topic. The instructions below are not step-by-step instructions – as part of the previous assignments you’ve already learned how to carry out various functions in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access. Instead, the information below details the requirements for the final project. If you need assistance with “how to do something in one of the Office applications” return to your SIMnet MS Office textbook. You can access this via the “Library” link in the top right-hand corner of SIMnet. Software Requirements You must use the following software applications to create the final project: • Microsoft Word 2021/365 • Microsoft Excel 2021/365 • Microsoft Access 2021/365 (MS Word 2021/365 Worksheet) or later • Microsoft PowerPoint 2021/365 No other versions of Office may be used. If you’re missing any of the above applications, keep in mind that the computers in the Open Computer Lab (DTEC 462) have all these applications available for your use. Project Topic After reading through the Careers in the Business Disciplines websites, you will select a career. This will be the focus of your final project. You will use ALL the Office applications to create content related to your chosen topic. Project Research Links Select a career in the business disciplines to use as the topic for your final project. Research Careers in the Business Disciplines to make your selection. Use the following sites: Ferguson’s Career Guidance Center U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Careers and Business Any other site of interest Project Minimum Requirements The minimum requirements for each of the four applications are detailed in the checklists below. Each application component is valued at 65pts. There are 40 points (10 pts each application) allocated for professionalism, effort, and creativity. Professionalism is assessed in evaluation of proper use of the required skills (e.g. competent in tables), grammar, spelling, and overall appearance. Effort is assessed in whether the presentation exceeded the minimum requirements Students who meet only the minimum requirements for each software application may not receive the 40 points for professionalism, effort, and creativity. Creativity is demonstrated by applying the software skills acquired during the term. Creativity is measured in various ways, including: o applying additional skills covered in the course but not listed as a minimum requirement, o adding additional graphics or pictures, o applying varying color schemes, o creative formatting of the Excel chart, o using various design backgrounds with presentation slides, o creating your own slide background instead of using a design template, o adding a border to the Microsoft Word document component, o graphically editing pictures and other graphics, o adding external sounds or movie clip in the PowerPoint component, etc. This project must be an original creation, not a copy and paste from this semester’s assignments.
