This is the jingle I created for my product, the Glo-Shoo, for a Media Literacy project. The project decription can be found here. The Glo-Shoo is a shoe with a light installed. Listen to the jingle to learn more. Thank you.
Our group as a whole met all the goals we had established. We finished everything on right on schedule and were very satisfied of our work and finished product. I met all of my personal goals as well. I did all of my homework and completed my section of the project. I learnt that in a Medieval Castle. it was a place where everyone had their own part, and that was needed in the castle for many different reasons. I had never worked with iMovie HD before and I thought there would be a lot of difference from iMovie, but it turned out to be almost the same. I have to admit that our filming was a little shaky and the scenes were long, but I thought we did a good job with the camera we had. We used about eleven separate recourses for our project and scrolled through the many pages the site had and scanned them over thoroughly. We did not check our sources for reliability, but the sites we looked at all said the same facts, so we assumed that it was the correct information. We also made sure that we gave credit to every individual website we looked at. I think that we could have used some books for recourses, but we did not find a book that had the daily life of the people in the castle in it.
As a whole my group got along very well there were no really big issues in our group, we all worked very nicely together. The group dynamics were just very normal we were there to get the project done and have fun and learn new things and that is accentually what we did. I was often the leader and sometimes I had to remind some of the group members that it was a working time and that we had a schedule that we needed to follow. All of the members of my group helped in each place of the project and were open to doing what ever needed to be done. I would create a similar project to this because it was fun and interactive yet it taught me new things in an interesting way that probably wouldn’t have come to my mind until now. One of the things I’ve learnt from this project that I would do differently is that next time I should figure out a way to keep the camera more steady so that the audience doesn’t feel sick afterward. I would love to experiment with typing a paper but right now I’m not quite sure what other project would be interesting.
This project was not an example of the best work I could have done since I now see some things I could have improved. It would probably be that average example of my work. I probably could have gotten a lot of little problems done, rather than saying that there were those problems, and then not doing anything about them. For example, I could have asked for a tripod to keep the camera more steady, I could have suggested to watch the movie couple times before presenting to fix all small problems, and I also could have made more suggestions as to what the group should do prior to the dynamics of the group. The areas I think I need to work on more is the technical parts. I think if the next project I do requires recording or keeping things on the computer, I should volunteer for that. I think I also should learn to take on some leadership, like trying to organize the group and keep order and focus so people wont get off task. Those are the things I have learned, need to learn, and now am aware of while doing this project.
I was in a group with Ruby and Charmaine. For our second bread making attempt, we made sun-dried tomato bread. It was more garlic and onions than tomatoes, because Ruby doubled that garlic and onions, but not the tomatoes. Since we followed the recipe that the cookbook had, we put a lot of yeast and 7% sugar, though the recipe did not call for any sugar. When we let it rise, it rose a lot, but sadly we had to kneed it again so all the CO2 came out. I think that might be the reason that it did not rise as much as the others did. I thought ours actually tasted quite good, although it could have used some cheese or as Rob said, some salted butter. I actually enjoyed all of the other loafs of bread that were made. No offense to Sherif, but the gummy-bear one did not sound very good at first, but I tried it and it wasn’t that bad! The chocolate one, made by Sean, Taelon, and Andrew, sounded good from the start and was when I tried it. It was very light and fluffy as well as chocolaty, most-likely because they added butter. I really liked the bread made bY Maxx and Alexander because it was very light and fluffy as well as tasty. I hope all the group are proud of there bread because they all turned out great.
Frida Kahlo was a Mexican artist in the 1930’s. Her full name was Magdalena Carmen Frida Kahlo y Calderón. She was born in Coyoacán, Mexico on July 6th, 1907. She was married to Diego Rivera. Diego Revera was also a famous painter. She painted mainly realistic paintings. A famous on is a self portrait she painted called Self Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird. That painting was painted in 1954. Another famous painting by her was a painting named The Two Fridas. That painting was pained in 1939.
For my first project making bread I worked with Ruby and Charmaine. We did the project to learn more about the amount of sugar needed to produce the most CO2 (the more the fluffier) and also to learn about fermentation. I thought that the dough we made was the best dough I have seen in my life. It was the right amount of thickness and of sticky-ness. I think we did a great job following directions. I hope to see fluffy awesome bread when we come to school tomorrow. I can’t wait to find out which bread works best.
Our group (Ruby Charmaine and I) could not wait to see our bread with 5% sucrose. Since Charlie thought our bread would be rock hard, we kinda worried for a bit. But, when we saw it, it might not have been the fluffiest, but it was far away from being rock hard. Since a lower amount of sucrose seems to not be enough, our group is probably going to choose a larger amount since 10% worked better. But overall, this bread-making experiment was a load of fun and anticipation.
This article is about the Robots that they have been making in Belgium, Europe. They have put “light touch” installed with them so that they can assist elderly and do other things that involve working with humans. The researchers at the University of Ghent, Belgium have used sensors to measure the reaction. They have creative a device that makes the skin of the robot far more sensitive than other sensors. They are going to be used to assist the elderly for things they will need to be done. This article was very interesting, and it was a very productive invention.
