Draft #2: Proposal and Thoughts on Design
I am slightly puzzled about how I should approach this assignment but I will do my best. My most awesome final project design will be put together with the following components I am about to list.
My research topic question is, how is 3-D printing able to revolutionize the medical field and save numerous lives? I am studying 3-D printing because I want to find out why it is going to be a critical element to the medical field in order to help my readers understand its importance for the future of health care. Based off of this information I want to format my paper in chronological order of past, present, and future. I want to start off by focusing on the dull beginning of 3-D printing and the medical field, and have them intersect. Then I will continue on to talk about the successes today and its possibilities in the future. In my writing I will also include informative videos, quote doctors, engineers, scientists, etc., and include a lot of links. Overall I want this to look a lot like an interactive Facebook feed of pictures and videos with words filling in the spaces.
In regards to the design of my final research paper I found these Multimedia Stories, which I have never seen before and were very unique. It might be too much for an Inquiry Project Final paper but I hope to incorporate some of the ideas from these stories. I want my paper to be just as interactive yet informative. Another online page design I found is this one about Bioprinting. The design is quite simple but still follows the fact that I want there to be a lot of interesting pictures that make you want to read more.
A great representation of design and more importantly writing voice would be this article. I really enjoy this article’s style of writing. It is very formal and is written like an article that belongs in a medical magazine. You can also tell it is a very intelligent article because of the vocabulary the author uses. I also like the fact that pictures are meshed in the writing. It is very pleasing to the eye and keeps the reader involve in your writing.
My final Inquiry Project paper is going to be an amazing blend of all the characteristics I talked about and I can not wait to continue designing and formulating my paper!
