recently, in tech class, we have been researching several different blogs made by students. we all looked at 2 blogs. All of the blogs we looked at were made by YIS 6th graders. most of the blogs I looked at were blogs of people I know. The first blog I looked at was Connor’s blog. I then looked at Elina’s blog. Both were very interesting.
Basically, with these tutorials, I learned how to draw a pig from angry birds, which looks like the ones from the game. I also learned how to use applescript (even though I do not know what applescript is). Unfortunately, I cannot use this in daily life. When could I put “do you want me to draw an angry bird pig?” in a conversation?
When I researched tutorials, I discovered that a good tutorial needs some very important things: Subtitles, good focusing, and a clear voice. without these things, it becomes harder to understand what is going on. If you don’t understand, the tutorial becomes useless.
I think I need to learn how to explain with more detail and to learn how to make a video of a screen. I am planning to either make an minecraft tutorial or an sketchup tutorial. both are interesting and I know how to use both quite well. However, I think I will use sketchup because it is not a game.
So this is my reflection. I hope you like it, and there might be more coming. I might include a special tutorial video. good luck.
