This brainstorming and research is vital for our term project. To get points across and to effectively present, we must learn from mistakes and learn from successes. There is a huge variety of ways to present. There is no one right answer. It all depends on what is being presented. Even a combination of a few may work best. The images and text above is simple, but has given me many ideas on how I wish to present my term project. This was a very intriguing and inspirational blog.
