This week for our technology homework we needed to make a reflection about this unit. This unit was mostly about tutorials. We made our own tutorials and added it on our blogs. For our last part of the unit we had to make another blog post about what went well for this unit.
In this unit I learned how to make your own tutorial. I also learned that making a tutorial can be useful for people that need to know something in a certain time or want to learn how to do it. I thought that this was a good idea to learn this because there are some people that want to know something or try something new and we can help them.
I learned this by watching other peoples tutorials and seeing how they used there voice or how much light they used. This gave me a lot of ideas on where could be the best place to do my tutorial. I think the best place to do your tutorial is a place where there is a lot of light and space.
Your tutorial should be simple but understandable as well. Don’t make your video too long because some people wont have the time to watch the whole video. Make your steps one step at a time or people will not be able to follow the whole tutorial.. Make your voices loud and clear or people will not be able to hear you well.
I am happy about my tutorial because even this is my very first tutorial I made my voice loud and clear. I also used my space well and the light in the room was light enough to see the koto. I was unhappy about not getting to the point so quickly because I mostly talked about what the koto was and what the tsume was.
This was difficult because it was hard to make the plan and I needed to shoot my video a few times because I giggled in some areas. The hardest part was editing the video because I needed to crop some areas and choose what font can match the video. The easiest part was the script because I knew what I was going to say as soon as we started this project.
I think I did well with no distractions because my background was simple. It was also not distracting because the room I was in was very quiet. My tutorial was also good because I used clear voice so that people can hear me well. You need to have a clear voice or people who are watching the tutorial won’t be able to listen well.
I need to do better on getting to the point as soon as the tutorial starts because I was mostly talking about what the instrument was. If I changed this small area my tutorial could of been much better.
We looked at 2-3 blogs and we had to comment on it. I looked at Christophers, Alex’s. We had to comment on how it was good and what can be improved. We had to make the tutorials we watched from a another class. Other classes commented on mine as well.
I thought that this was the best unit so far for technology because I learned something new that sometimes I wished to make someday. I enjoyed making the tutorial because it was fun to make a video that I made myself and show people how to do it. It felt like I was a teacher.
