1. How many criteria do you think it is useful to have? Why? Can you have too many or too few?
I think 10-20 criteria is okay. It can’t hurt to have too many criteria, but it would be hard to be able to do every single one, and also that it would get kind of confusing.
2. Which of the criteria the class came up with do you think is the most important? Why?
I think that all of them are equally important. You need all of them.
3. Do you feel that the class left out any really important criteria? What ones?
I don’t think the class left out anything.
4. Do you think the process we used (research, small group agreement, then whole class agreement) is a good way to develop criteria – why or why not?
I think it’s a good way, because if we all did it in the sametime, it would get extremely confusing, loud, and disorganized.
1. Which applications do you think will be best to create a trailer? Why?
iMovie. I think iMovie is good, because it’s simple, and the effects is pretty neat. It seems to be made to make this kind of stuff.
2. Which applications do you think will be the least useful for creating a book trailer? Why?
Perhaps quicktime, because it’s made to do recording and such, and we don’t need to use that kind of stuff.
3. Do you already feel confident about using the application? If not how much will you need to learn?
Pretty much. I don’t use iMovie that much, and with a little help I’ll be able to use it. I use it sometimes, but sometimes I forget how to use it.
4. Do you think it makes more sense to choose an application and then start designing, or to design your trailer first and then choose an application to make it? Explain.
I think it makes sense to choose an application and start designing, because you could play around with the things on that app. If you design first, you might not know how to use somethings, or realize that you can’t do that on the app.
I think it’s easy to mean, because when people are mean, they often think that people aren’t going to challenge them. Everyone one of us has been mean at least once, and it’s hard to explain the feeling you get whenever you are mean. But usually after, you feel kind of guilty. It makes you feel powerful, and that usually is a feeling people like. Compared to being nice, it a whole lot different. If you’re being nice to someone, it makes them feel like everyone cares for them, making them feel powerful, and they could kick you down. While being mean people wouldn’t try be mean back to you….Explaining thing question is pretty tricky…
As you can tell, the news has gone worse, and now I’m in Belgium. The nuclear thing is really freaking me out, and has gone into the sea, and into food. Not only about the Japanese news, but also Libya, on war, and the Ivory Cost now? Personally, I think the Ivory Coast is kind of imature-fighting over a political spot? That’s kind of sad. No offence.
I really do hope things get better, because there is so much negitive things on now!
Except for Prince William’s wedding soon. And also, I read in a magazine this guy in Japan searched 20 hours for his girlfriend! He couldn’t drive a car to where she was, so he walked there instead. That’s really sweet!
On Friday, March, 11, 2011, I survived the 5th biggest earthquake in the world. We were in drama class, and we were practicing our dancing, when I first felt the shaking. At first I was like oh it’s just a normal earthquake, but I never feel it. But then it started to grow stronger, and then we had to huddle into the middle of the room, since we had no desks. I started crying, sobbing, I’ll admit it, but for me it was a shock. I lived in Japan for all my life and I never, ever felt anything like that. But my friends around me, they told me it’s okay, everything is going to be fine. But I was also worried about my mum, dad, and my brother. Then the PA system came on and Mr.Stanworth, the high school principle came on and told us what to do. When the earthquake calmed down, I didn’t, I just kept on crying, and shaking. But I recovered and started to practice the dancing again, and them, the earthquake happend again. We huddled in, once more and I cried a bit. Once that was done we still sat in the middle feeling the aftershocks. I cried some more because I wanted to contact my mum and dad. We tried on Mrs.Erickson iPhone, but I couldn’t reach my mum. Then we tried my dad’s mobile and it worked. He just wanted to know if I was okay, and such. Then the PA system came on again, and said if your parents aren’t picking you up then you can’t leave. I had to wait until around 4:45 until my mum came. I cried on and off, got mad, etc.
But in the end, everyone was fine.
OMG!!! I can’t believe i am going to Hakuba!!!!!
