The ELO student demonstrates his/her gained knowledge and applies an understanding of what they learned by developing a tangible product that relates to his/her interests, skills, and abilities.
WHAT is it and WHY do we do it?
A final product is the natural end result of your ELO learning journey. The final product should provide you with a valuable means of processing and exploring your learning goals and essential questions. It should demonstrate your ability to apply the knowledge you have attained leading up to and during your ELO learning experience.
Ideally you will be creating a final product that results in an original product or idea, that contributes back to the larger community. In other words, can your product benefit others?
Remember that a presentation is NOT a product. The presentation is a way to share your product.
