At the end of February, Level 3 Computing students finished the first stage of their course project with a special kind of exam - presenting their project in a talk show style hosted by their teacher Sanjay Shah.
The computing project is about creating a game which works both in the real world and on a computer. The exam was an important step before going on to transform the game ideas into reality, using industry standard software packages for the computer animation. The games will be exhibited later this year in the form of robots and drones, which will bring the designs to reality.
As presentation skills are crucial in the students’ future work life, Richmond upon Thames College (RuTC) teacher Sanjay Shah turned the exam into a talk show. As the host, he interviewed four students at a time in front of a camera. The students presented their game ideas and knowledge of the industry in a professional way, gaining confidence in themselves at the same time. To underline their arguments, students were allowed to use Microsoft Office Sway presentations.
Marlon Quizon, RuTC Level 3 Computing student, said: “This was the first time we did an exam like this and it really helped me to explain project ideas and computing knowledge to others, and to become more confident in real life situations, like job interviews.”
