This is the presentation that Kazuki and I made. This is a little nerdy, but please watch. The purpose of this project was finding out how to use google presentation. I think that the pros of google presentation was that we were able to share the google presentation and able to work on the same time. Also, like other presentation applications, we are able to share, and not only sharing it is possible to change the presentation, and overwrite on it. In google presentation we only need ti make a gmail account and no need of downloading or paying money. But in google presentation it is not only pros. There are also cons. I think that the cons of google presentation is that there are not that much types of font colors. And in google presentation there are no transitions, so I think that in google presentation, we have to make our presentation more interesting with our talking and not by technology.

Now I am finished with my second last project, making a stamp and making connecting and positive and negative patterns. I made a design that would make a leaf at the middle, and I imagined when it falls on the pond the water makes little waves.
I used some negative and positive space, and created a design. In my stamp I used a lot of curved lines more than strait lines. I thought of the leaf thing, because I thought that it would look more calm and the colors could be really colorful. I was a little stupid that I forgot to think about the balance of the leaf. So when I finished and was able to connect all the parts, the line started at the same place, but the balance was really bad, and it does not look like a leaf until you really know that it is a leaf, it is like, “oh I see” kind of thing.
In this project as I said, it was difficult because there were things that I could not notice until I got the finished work. I think I had my best work in my mind but not in real life. It was difficult because I had to imagine how it looked, about the connecting part. Also in this project I had another difficulty. It was making the design. It sounds easy to make a design, but it was hard. I had to fill in most of the spaces, and have some patterns too. At first I did not really have a good idea, until I got my leaf idea.
I think that I had improved on my carving skills and making patterns skills. I think that my carving was quite good in this project. I think I had carved the stamp clearly and was same as my original design. I used the way Mr. Mural told us, making the carving utensil parallel to the stamp, and then I was able to make a clear line. Also, in this project I was able to make a good design that include, various types of lines. I was able to mix curved and strait lines. I think that by mixing these 2 types of lines I was able to make positive and negative spaces.
If I had to repeat this project I will, think of balance more and look at my design as one, and not as separate peaces. And I will add, one more main thing in the middle of each design.
I think that Community and service fits best with this project. In this project, like other projects we had shared it with the world, and I believe that the person that watched the tutorial had learned something. I think that we had helped some people with learning some things on the tutorial. But I think that it also fits with Human Ingenuity because we had to invent and be clever in telling a message to the person.
I learned that the most important thing in is planning. By planning I was able to make my tutorial smoother and easier. At first I thought that there would be no meaning of planning and I was thinking that I could plan when I am creating my work. But then when I had started creating my work I started to feel glad that I had did my planning. In planning we made the time management sheet and the story board so when I was creating I just had to follow my plan and I just had to change the bits that did not work well. I think that throughout all subjects and works planning is important and it is able to make anything possible. Overall I think that planning is important all the design cycle is important, because they all gets together.
I think that in this project we used all of the approaches to learning. We used reflection and communication for everything, like for reflecting like what I am doing right now and communication for reflecting like as I said, and I think that doing my tutorial was communicating with the world too, planning was kind of reflection too, I had to reflect about my investigated information, and I think that was my plan, because there is my plan because there is my investigate, and my reflection of plan was create, because there is plan so I am able to create. So my last plan create was a reflection showing my good things and my bad things about my plan. For me I think that it is also the same thing for my create, and my reflection was my reflection of the whole thing and also my create(obviously, because it is a reflection for everything).
I think that I had used all of the IB learner profile. I think that I was not able to finish this project unless I used all of them:
Inquiers I think that if I did not put my curiosity out I was not able to make my tutorial better, from my first tutorial.
Knowledgable I think by putting in my knowledgable skills into my tutorial I was able to express my thinkings and my personality into my tutorial.
Thinkers I think that I was a thinker when I was not able to save my iMovie and I just did on the same computer(same for all I think)
Communicators I think that by doing this project, it was something being as a communicator between the world. And I think that I am a communicator when I am posting this blog post.
Principled I did not be principled that much in this project, but I definitely I was principled some how. And I think that I was principled, well when I said the true thing? on the tutorial. And I believe that I am being principled by doing this post.
Open-minded I think that I was open minded when I tried to look through the audiences perspective and watched my own tutorial and analyzing other people`s(17doik)tutorial.
Caring For me this one is really hard to explain. I do not even really do not know how I was caring. But I believe that I was caring by teaching the audience of my tutorial.
Risk-taker For this one I think that I was able to be a risk taker by showing to the world and not being embarrassed about the tutorial, even though I think it is not that good.
Balanced I think I was balanced, in this project? I do not really know. Still, I was balanced when I was behaving well than the other unit.
Reflective YES, this is the easiest one to write. I AM reflective by doing this post!!!!
If you want to see my tutorial, please scroll down.
In this tutorial I learned that it is really hard to make it as our imagination. In my tutorial I wanted to be able to show the workings but it did not go well. But all the things I did weren`t bad. I had finished the tutorial faster than other people so I was able to get some advice from Ms. Cofino. I think I was lucky to get some advice. I learned that the writings in the slide is a big part. When I changed the red BODMAS bit, I think it was easier to understand the rule.
I am happy to finish my first tutorial. I think it was better if I add my simple script on to my tutorial so when the person watching was not able to understand my voice. And I think that it would look better. But overall I am really happy with my reflection, and I think that the audience would be able to understand my speakings.
It was difficult for me to make because iMovie is not able to save and start on another computer. I also had a hard time making the music. I made a lot of music but it did not mach with the tutorial. The part of taking my voice was easy, because we already knew what to say. From this project I was able to know how important planning is.
I think that I would get a 5 create and I would get also a 5 for reflect too. The reason why my tutorial would get a 5 is because at some parts it could have been better if I spent more time, and I hope that the person who was watching was able to learn something, unless they already knew the rule of algebra. And for reflect I believe that I will get a 5 because I think that this reflection is not that bad.
I think that to create a better tutorial, for me is to include the script. And work some more time on planning that now I know how important it is.
