Qmc Model: Stages of research

 

Deciding what does the task mean?

 

-         What are the precautions that New Zealand have in place, to ensure

     blood diamonds or conflict diamonds are not imported into the

     country?

 

What I know:

 

           - That blood diamonds and conflict diamonds are used for civil war

               - The diamonds are mined in India and South Africa

 

What I need to know:

 

-         Law on trading diamonds in New Zealand

-         What happens to the miner

-         How much money they earn

-         Precautions new Zealand has on Blood diamonds

-         What happens to people who import blood diamonds if they get caught

 

Where to go:

 

        - The library

           - Look up the information on the internet

           - Email jewellers’ to ask what they do to ensure that their diamonds

              are not blood diamonds?

-         Email the section of the government that covers that area

           -  Epic

 

 

What I will produce in the end:

      

-         A power point of information or

-         a advertisement to play inside a

    jewellery company telling the customer why they should buy

    diamonds from jewellery store

                             Selecting, sifting and sorting.

Does my material give insight into the topic?

 

        Some of the information I found was for international protocols not specifically New Zealand protocols

 

        The source for my information is reliable because its from the New Zealand customs website New Zealand legislation and from magazines such as Amnesty International and United Nations Forums all concerned with the effects of diamond mining and trading from conflict areas.

 

 

Gathering and recording.

Have I used a range of relevant resources?

 

Note taking:

 

-         Cut and paste; the important information or the main ideas of the paragraphs from websites

-         Print off highlight

 

-         Rewrite in my own words

 

-         Put a sticky label to mark the page of the book

 

-         Put sticky labels by important information found in book

 

 

Organise or Categorise information efficiently:

 

I put my information into order of importance and relevance.

 

 

Presenting and organising.

How can I show my understandings most effectively?

 

 

The main message or points:

 

 -  What are the precautions that New Zealand have in place, to ensure blood diamonds or conflict diamonds are not imported into the country?

 

 - What happens to the miners?

 

 - Where are the conflict areas?

 

 

 

Who is my audience?

 - Jewellery customers

 

 

How can I convey my concepts most clearly and concisely?

 

-         Power point presentation prepared for jewellery stores; promoting a public awareness of the diamond trade specifically blood and conflict diamonds

 

Inside the power point:

 

-         Map of conflict area’s

-         Information on blood and conflict diamonds

-         Pictures of the working conditions of the miners

-         Pictures of the miners

-         New Zealand legislation of blood and conflict diamonds

-         Pictures of diamond and famous people wearing diamonds

 

 

Reflection.

How can I evaluate my research assignment?

 

 

-         I thought I presented my research topic clearly.

 

-         I think I managed my time well.  I had all my research and information before I started the design work for the presentation.

 

-         I think that I could have made my question focus more on one aspect of blood diamonds

 

-         Instead of just saving my web-site address into my favourites also save them on another page

 

-         I think that my audience can learn a lot from my power point presentation. I think my message ‘blood diamonds awareness’ is clear.
