Assessment Details

The Digital Revolution is not limited to the past – we should expect changes to continue for the foreseeable future. The aim of this assessment is for you to explore how IT might change a particular industry in the future, based on current trends and upcoming technologies.

For this assignment, you need to create a short video. There are many different tools available to help do this; Windows Movie Maker is available in the labs. It is also acceptable to perform a single-take video using a smart device or webcam.

Your topic must be automatically generated, based on your student ID. Please use the Topic Generator link in Moodle, and choose only one of the topics available.

Topics are of the form:

“The potential impact of {Technology} on {Industry or Activity}”.

Not all options are strictly technologies – some are applications of technology

CRICOS Provider No. 00103D Assessment Task - Video and Disruption Report.docx Page 2 of 6


Create an ePortfolio page which you will use to submit your work. Make sure you keep the page private – you do not need to set the visibility of your ePortfolio to public for this assessment task.

Access the Topic Generator through Moodle, and choose one of the available topics.

Part one – Research

The first step to creating your video and report is to explore both the technology and the industry, to understand the potential impacts.

Write a short description of the technology and the industry XXXXXXXXXXwords each), and add both to your ePortfolio page. You may use any relevant sources, including websites, blogs, tweets, journal articles and textbooks. Ensure you reference any sources appropriately.

Part two – Brainstorming

For your topic, list at least three ways the technology may change or disrupt the industry. Include this list on your ePortfolio page.

If you are having trouble, remember that this is a creative task – it’s ok for your ideas to be 10 or 30 years in the future. The more you can come up with at this stage the better, even if you think your ideas are completely implausible.

Some hints:

• Consider the impact of the technology on the people in the industry; will it make their lives easier or harder?

• Can you draw parallels to other industries where your technology may have had impact?

• Are there other technologies you’re aware of that might, together with your chosen technology, have a stronger combined impact?

• Creative thinking requires a dedicated block of time and the freedom to play around with ideas. Don’t leave it to the last minute!

Once you have brainstormed a number of impacts, choose one to focus on for the next two assignment parts. Review the rest of this assignment specification before choosing.

Part three – Regulation and Ethics

Choose one technology impact from the previous exercise, and identify at least four factors or constraints that make this impact possible, or which might prevent it occurring.

Frame these within Lawrence Lessig’s regulations – Market, Law, Architecture (Physical/Natural) and Norm(Social/Ethical). Include them in your ePortfolio page.

At least one of the factors or constraints should be ethical in nature.

You may choose to identify one factor or constraint for each of Lessig’s categories, or have multiple in one category. For example, it is ok to have three Market constraints and one Norm constraint.

CRICOS Provider No. 00103D Assessment Task - Video and Disruption Report.docx Page 3 of 6

Part four – Disruption

Identify one process within your industry or field that would change as a result of your chosen impact.

Some hints to identify processes:

• Consider processes in acquisition, manufacture, supply, support, staffing, and communication

• Write a brief use case – like a case study but focussing on interactions and processes

• Try searching! For example, “business processes in ticket sales” (but use your chosen business). Don’t just copy an existing diagram though.

For this process, determine:


Activities or Tasks;

Decision points;

Actors (people and/or objects);


Refer to lecture materials and readings for descriptions of these terms.

Write a description of this process in English (about 200 words), referring to the above events, tasks, decisions, actors and outcomes.

It is acceptable and expected that you make a number of assumptions about the process, but these should be explicitly included in your description. What are you basing your understanding on?

Identify specific components of this process that would change due to your technological idea. Describe how these components would be affected by the change XXXXXXXXXXwords). It should be clear which events, tasks, decision points, actors, and outcomes are affected, and in which ways. This may include components being removed, replaced, augmented or added.

Include justification for why these components are affected by your specific technology.

Use process model diagrams to support your description – one before and one after the change.

These need to be detailed enough to show the change in processes, but not so detailed that the changes are hard to spot. The purpose of your model here is to show the impact of the technology on the business process; let that guide your level of detail.

Part five – Video plan (optional)

Depending on how you envision your video, it may be worth creating a plan and a script. Some people are comfortable doing unscripted video, if this applies to you this part is optional.

There are several ways to plan your video, common approaches are writing scripts and/or storyboards. A script lists the words to say in your video, but also may include directions such as what to show on screen or how to act. A storyboard is a series of sketches showing how shots are framed. There are plenty of resources online to help you create a script or a storyboard.

CRICOS Provider No. 00103D Assessment Task - Video and Disruption Report.docx Page 4 of 6

Create a script or storyboard to help you plan your video. You do not need to submit it as part of your assessment task (but you can!).

Part six – Video

Using any software or other tools you like, create your video!

Two minutes is not very long. You don’t have to cover everything from your report, nor all of your brainstormed ideas. You may choose to talk about several of your ideas at a shallow level, or speak in more depth about just one. Pick whatever is going to make the most engaging 2-minute video.

Your video can be made however you like - talking to camera; using narrated slides; describing a sketch; or combining multiple methods. Choose an approach that best suits you and the content you are trying to deliver.

Target your video to your peers in ITECH1100 – it should be understandable to people who are familiar with the content of the class but who are not experts in your topic.

You must use at least one supporting graphic in your video. This may be a chart you have generated from Excel, a supporting diagram that you have created, or any other graphic that supports your video.

You must create the graphic yourself.

Regardless of how you choose to make sure your video, ensure:

• Sound and narration is clearly audible;

• enough context is included to demonstrate understanding of the industry and the technology, and the significance of the impact;

• the length is between 1:45 and 2:15;

• an appropriate sequence is followed so that a viewer can understand the context and content. Your audience is your peers in ITECH 1100.

• graphical elements are clearly legible.

Your video should be recorded and edited in 720p or higher (if possible).

Upload your video to one of the following services:

YouTube –

Vimeo –

Embed your video in your ePortfolio page as an External Media block.


To submit your assignment, submit your Mahara ePortfolio page and via Moodle.

1. Research
Water processing or water treatment is the process via which the quality of water is improved and is made fit for consumption by industries, farmlands, humans and animals i.e. the water is made potable for specific end uses. The end use cases in water processing can be many such as drinking or potable water, industrial uses, farm land use and i
igation, river flow maintenance, water recreation and its safe return to the environment. Water processing or water treatment, removes the undesirable components and contaminants or at the very least significantly reduces their concentration so the water becomes fit for its end use purpose.
Internet of things or IoT, as it is more commonly refe
ed to, is a network of smart devices, appliances, tools and equipment which is embedded with sensors and actuators which enable them to gather & exchange data to usually a cloud based software which processes that data. Multiple identifiers can be tracked uniquely using this technology which can also give real time data and analysis based on software to help with decision making using the interoperability of network in the given internet infrastructure. The technology has found various applications which range from the world of research and science to the world of consumers and their daily health tracking habits. Ranging from heart monitoring health implants and DNA analysis devices to the smart automobiles of today, IoT has made a mark in nearly each sector and domain.
(Greguras, F. (2018).)
2. Brain-Storming
For the moment the implementation of internet of things in the water processing industry has been minimal and restricted to the first world countries. A lot many smart city projects around the world are planning to or have started implementation of this technology to inspect and monitor the usage of water and to monitor the meters installed such as in the South Korean province of Gochang where Freestyle Technology, a Melbourne based technology company, has been awarded the contract to initiate the deployment of their smart meters in nearly 24,000 homes. These smart meters have showcased a read rate exceeding 99%.
(Corner, S. (2018).)
The IoT technology can disrupt the water processing industry in the future by completely controlling the chemical composition of the water being fed into the systems by aligning it with a person’s personal needs and medical needs, with vitamin rich water to water with higher amounts of minerals depending on the medical healthcare provider’s perspective and advice.
