Tutorial Investigation Reflection

From the whole unit I learned that while making a tutorial you have to be carful. I also learned that while making a tutorial you have to speak clearly, don’t block the camera view, be polite and choose the words carefully. This is my  favorit tutorial 

Now I would like to compare and contrast the difference between the practise tutorial I made and  my favourite tutorial.I think the differences are that in a movie tutorial you have to speak but in a written tutorial you have to write, in my tutorial I was not that detailed but in the video tutorial the person was very detailed and organized, in my tutorial I did not say what would go wrong if you did that or that but in  my favorit tutorial they said to do this or that to make it better.The similarities are that you have to be specific, you have to go in order,you need to tell the finished project first, you need to be clear and  you need to be polite of the words you are using.

From the two different tutorials I learned that you have to be clear on what you are saying, you need to tell the  finished project first or else the person doing the thing will have a hard time, you need to be clear, you need to be polite of the words you are using.

This is the friends I watched there video and commented on. Sayo’s blog, Hana.E’s blog and Lent’s blog.  If you click on the names you can see what I said about there favourite tutorial! From these tutorial I learned that you should not waist your time.It is because if the tutorial is very long people would not want to watch it. I also learned not to block the camera view when you are making the video. I learned to speak more clearly.

From this steps I learned how to make a good tutorial that other people will like and keep watching.

My favourite Tutorial

Hey guys! In tech class we are learning how to make a video tutorial. To do this we first have to research and find examples. This video was the best one out of 4 that I found.

The video helped me learn how to make a rainbow cake.It helped me learn the technical words for the cooking supplies. I learned to wear white shirts when trying to make rainbow cakes because the die can get on the shirt. I learned that when you are frosting the cake you have to push from the bottom not from the top because if you push from the upper side the frosting thing will pop.

I like how the person explain the things we need in the technical words. It is useful because we might not have the stuff at home but if you know the name you can straitly go to the store and get the exact one.I liked how the person wrote the technical words for use. It was useful because some people might want to buy it from the internet but if they do not know the spelling they might end up buying the wrong one.

 

 

They kind of just waited there time when the cake was getting baked because they just said nonsense stuff. I think the person should have not fast forward the time in the middle because it might be a bit hard to keep up with if you are backing and watching at the same time.

This year goals.

Hey peps!!! Today I would like to talk about my new year goals. First I will talk about last year and what I thought about it.  how-to-make-new-year-resolutions-and-keep-themSource

So in 2013 the important thing that happened to me was that I became friends with friends I thought I would never be friends with. The special thing that happened to me was that I was able to play the flute in front of people. I think I changed to be a more responsible and trustworthy person. I learnt that if you lose your best friend they are still with you in your heart regadless of where you are.

 

My first goal is to play better at golf. This is a important goal for me because The benefits are that I will be able to get in a competition. I would like to achieve this goal by the end of the year.  The step I will take to achieve this goal is to practice every week.

My second goal it to be able to play the flute better. This is important goal for me because I love to play the flute for my hobbies. The benefits are that I will be happy about myself. I would like to achieve this goal by the end of the year.The step I will take is to practise everyday about 25 min everyday.

My third goal it to get rid of my stage fright. This goal is important to me because I always want to do things in front of people but when I am on the stage I start to be scared out. The benefits are that I will able to do flute concerts without being scared out. I would like to achieve this goal by the end of the year.The steps I will take to achieve this goal is to practise the thing I am doing then do it in front of friends. After I will do it in front of a large crowd.

 

 

 

 

Hey guys this is Hyun Seo here. This blog post is about what we have learnt in humanities. We have learnt about all kinds of biome in the world and our task was to make a 3D model of the traditional house in the biome using minecraft. I have chosen to learn about the Cold Tundra biomes. There are two types of houses they live in. This is what the house looks likeScreen Shot 2014-01-07 at 9.39.50 PMThis is a photo of an Igloo. Igloo sours

This is how my house looks like on minecraft.

In cold Tundra  , the temperature is between -20°F and -30°F. It is different from the other biomes because it is very cold all throughout the year and the sun shines about 24 hours everyday.

In cold Tundra, there are not that much plants because of extreme coldness in the region. On the other hand, the animals are adapted by learning how to catch fish and living in a cold place. For example, some sea animals have layers of fat to keep them warm. Many fishes and insects have special chemicals in their blood that prevent from freezing.

Cold Tundra can be found in places where the subsoil is permafrost like Antarctica, Greenland, Arctic, North Russia and Canada.

Igloos were made by Eskimos. Eskimos are the people that live in the Antarctica. This kind of building is used because they have no other equipment or materials rather than ice and snow to build the house.The roof is triangulated because it snows a lot in the winter time and it helps the snow from stacking up on top of the house.

For the Igloo houses, they will have to get used to the cold and making the house with snow because there will be no heater or any kind of thing to warm people up. The brilliant science actually lies in building Igloo and they help keep warmth for people who are living inside. The structure of Igloo is a dome-shaped but it is not that simple as many people assume. The entrance is narrow and long in order to keep the coldness from inside of the house. The interior also has a keen point of adaptation since it is divided into two level. The higher level is used for sleeping and the lower level is used for living and eating. This is because the upper level catches the hot air much more than the lower level.

For the triangular roofed houses, the roof itself shows adaptation of people living in cold Tundra. This is because the triangular roof compared to flat roof will have less snow. Therefore, the angle of the roof is very steep compared to other biomes. The interior if the housing is pretty similar to another normal housing. The material of housing should be much more enduring in extreme snow and cold temperature so that it will not be transformed into other forms.

In conclution I would like to say that I like doing this project in general because I got to learn a lot about the biome I was learning about. I also think minecraft was the best way to make this project 3D because in minecraft it looks real and lifelike which made it a bit easier to make.
