Your calculations are incorrect. The total marks available for the team to allocate to individual students is 324 marks. Your current calculations seem to be using a much lower number of 260.

IMPORTANT reminders for all students in this group:
(1) Marks must be whole numbers without fractions.
(2) If marks are not allocated equally, then, discussions and explanations must be posted to the group logbook to show how the group allocated individual marks using which evidence and which allocation policy.
(3) If there is disagreement, then, the group is required to discuss the reason(s) for disagreement.

It is IMPORTANT that the group discuss the marks allocation and record the outcomes in this group logbook. That has been the requirement for this coursework during the entire academic year.

Ōma'oma'o Tech

Public Update 1

Date: 16th November 2014


The first part of any great achievement is laying out the foundations for success, and that is exactly what we, the newly formed Ōma’oma’o Tech members have done. We opted for the running start, quickly organising regular meetings in order to start pushing our project in the right direction and to familiarise the team with each other.


With-in this report you will find information about the creation of the team, activities related to this, progress of the research and ideas that help focus us towards a final prototype.

Getting to know the team (10th Oct - 17th Oct 2014)                                             

The first few meetings were essentially just getting to know one another. We all shared some basic information about ourselves and moved on to describe our strengths, weaknesses and what kind of contribution we could each bring to the project. Based on the shared information, we created a skillset to show the abilities of each of the members and their willingness to learn. Also we decided on how regular we want to meet to share our ideas and to review progress so far.


Once everyone was acquainted and happy with the teams variety we eagerly began sharing ideas, some more ambitious than other, but all were welcome at this early stage. With so many ideas cropping up we decided instead to look from a consumers point of view and identify problems in the home to solve rather than thinking up random solutions.

Further Organisation and Project development  (17th Oct - 24th Oct 2014)

Choosing a singular product from the pool of wild ideas we had created proved to be a much harder decision than we had initially thought, so we put ourselves to the task of reducing the list of potential choices.  We also split into smaller teams to further research how the project ideas could be implemented further by looking at them from the consumers perspective, those groups included:

  • Entertainment

  • Convenience

  • Security

  • Automation


Each member set off with the task of researching a more specific area within ‘home automation’ and would return with their findings at the next meeting.


Even though a product was not chosen, a possibly equally important decision was made; Our group was to named Ōma’oma’o Tech. “Ōma’oma’o” means color green in Hawaiian.  In the following meeting we decided on an official font and logo (posted below) for our group which we thought would be both appealing and memorable.

Product research (24th Oct 2014 - 4th Nov 2014)

Having discussed our research in the domains assigned during previous meetings. Ideas circulated around controlling the home automation devices and solving problems in normal homes like ventilation and poor heating. We also discussed early versions of the Group Report and our Personal Journals. We decided that each of the members will make his contribution towards the report and then choose one for final editing.


Using Kickstarter.com we were able to view products that were successfully launched and analyse some of the techniques used to achieve that level of success. We also looked at some less successful campaigns and compared and discussed them in some detail to gain some insight into how exactly we would path the way to success for our project.

You, our audience (4th Nov - Present)

Since our name translates to “Green” tech, we focused on deciding what our audience would expect of us. So at this point we decided no matter what we project we decided upon it would be made as “green” as we could; meaning low power consumption, recyclable materials and even the colour green. If we can make a product even a little more green then we will.


Finally we needed to ensure that we could communicate with our audience and keep a good record of all of our progress. To do so we created several drafts of templates and eventually settled on templates for our meeting minutes, personal journals, group journal and even our public update which you are currently reading; ensuring consistency and ease of access and reading for both you and ourselves.

Summary of accomplishments (10th Oct - Present)

  • Established a means of efficient group communication

  • Finalized group name and logo

  • Did research on problems found at home and related products

  • Created a list of projects

  • Eliminated unachievable or undesirable projects

  • Created templates for personal and group report

What's next (14th Nov onwards)

  • Product choice

  • In depth product research

  • First design specifications

  • First prototype and testing


All of which is soon to come in future updates.

Public Group Journal - Team BlueBérri

What are the key decisions made so far:

So far the key decisions have been the Logo, selecting a Team leader, the Team Name BlueBérri , to have and set Homeworks weekly, the groups idea of a Marking scheme which is going to be based on attendance and homework, to add and select Product Idea’s on the group document, to further Pinpoint Ideas, to set up and arrive to Meeting times/days, to use google drive as a communication medium and work resource center, to set up and use trello for project management, to bring in Food once a week by a different person each week to encourage a better mindset, who submits group journal this week, set deadlines /running deadlines, and a colour scheme for writing. This week cut down the short list to two, select the idea, group journal template/ send by the team leader and team journal template.


Next key decisions:

Our next important key decisions to make are make a timeline, Set job roles, and set research homework tasks.


How will future decisions be made:

Future decisions are currently made by a majority vote, this works well within our group as the team is an odd number of 9, therefore making it fairly easy to stick to.


How progress is measured for the team:

Team progress is measured by arrival to the meetings and also by homeworks that have been set, whether or not they have been attempted or completed. We have decided it is not fair to measure it by anything else until individuals are assigned with their own personal tasks, and personal homeworks.


How contribution is measured:

Contribution will be measured by homeworks and attendance, this is done as stated above based on the idea of whether the homework has been attempted or completed, and as said before we would prefer to have the groups roles set out before cementing anything.


Communication methods:

Our communications methods include using Google Docs, Trello, Group Meetings, Email, Mobiles/What's App.
