What was the most important thing you learned during this project ? Why is it important?
I think planning was the most important thing during this project. Usually I never plan before my work but I learned that planning would make my work even neater, easier and faster. If you plan properly, your work will be neater. For example, if you don’t plan your poster and you just start drawing on it, you will have to erase it if you make a mistake, which makes pencil marks and crumpled paper. Secondly, if you plan properly, your work will definitely be neater. The reason is because you know what you want and need and you will not make a big mess on your work. Last, if you plan properly, you can finish your project faster because you already had planned what to do instead of wondering what else to include or take out.
Did the Technology Design Cycle (Investigate. Plan.Create, Evaluate) help you organize and complete your project? Why Or why not?
The Design and plan cycle helped me organize and complete my work really well. I think this “Design and Plan Cycle” is a very useful thing to use. If there was no such thing, people would just start on their icing instead on their cake when they need to do a project or presentation. By doing this, people will care more on the decoration compared to their information or research.
Which of the IB Learner Profiles do you think you demonstrated during the course of this project? How did you demonstrate that profile?
I think I was reflective. I chose reflective because I reflected a lot on what we did during class. For example, I reflected on what we did during the classes, what I could have done better and how I did better. Reflecting helped me to make a good improvement from something that happened before. For example, I was not interested to this unit but I reflected on the type on student I wanted to be so I decided that I am going to do well during this unit. In the end, I really love this class and unit.
How can you use the skills you learned during this project in the future? In other classes? As a university student? As an adult? Why would these skills and how would they help you?
I think I could use these skills when I grow up and become an adult. I could make a blog talking about difficulty at work or home and I can help the people who is experience what I am experienced before or now. In this way, I could get feedback for my life and I also can give feedback to other people. Another time I could use this skills is when I need to make a blog for a company. Since I know about the menus and widgets really well, I could help make a company’s blog. Also I wanted to be a designer so probably I could study deeper about blog so I could design blogs too!
There are different places I can use this skill but it is another goal that I achieved too! I am looking forward to the next unit so I could reflect and also achieve another goal for my life! Thanks to the Technology Design Cycle, I became very organized. I hope I am about to achieve another goal!
