Tutorial Reflection

In tech class we researched 3 or more tutorial video  and we learned some good techniques to make my tutorial we’re going to make soon better. We made a tutorial about how to make a playlist on youtube  and It was a little challenging for me because I had to make the tutorial in 30 minutes. I think I did good on my first tutorial so please watch It. We also chose our best tutorial from 3 or more tutorial research and we wrote about our best tutorial. Click the Link to see more information.

 

Now I would want to compare my own tutorial and my favourite tutorial and see the similarity of my first tutorial and my favourite tutorial and the difference.

Here is a list of what my tutorial and my favourite tutorial had often.

1.The tutorials had steps and this helps because if the tutorial is broken into little pieces than it makes it easier for the viewers to follow the tutorial. It also had clear and simple step and this helps because it makes it easier for the readers to understand and be able to do the steps easily.

2. The tutorials had picture or videos in the tutorial. This is good because this makes it easier for the viewers to understand the tutorial. Also it makes it easier for the viewers to see the small details that the viewers can’t really imagine just with words.

Here is the list of how the tutorials were different

1. My tutorial didn’t show what is the advantage of doing the tutorial but in my favorite tutorial, it had people that are good at the skill. This helps because it inspire or makes people think they want to do the tutorial

2. He should have showed where he’s going to shoot the ball but I explained where to click specifically witch made it easier for the viewers to follow the step.

In tech class we also did My favourite Investigation and I commented on Owen’s and Rei’s blog. FromTheir favourite tutorial I learned a lot.

From Owne’s blog I learned how to kick a curve ball which helped a lot in a real soccer match. From Rei’s blog I learned how to play Mario in the guitar and I thought It was really cool (even tho I don’t play the guitar).

This is the important skills I learned from watching the tutorial.

  1. You should use good vocabulary’s so that it makes it easier for the reader to hear the voice.
  2.  You can put voice over after recording if the sound is not clear. This is useful because it it makes it easier to hear the voice and also it prevent from viewers to miss out important words.

From doing all of these things I learned the 2 basic important tips to make a tutorial. One is, the tutorial should have simple and easy steps and the 2nd important thing is the time of the video should be less than 2-5 minute because it will be boring for some people to watch that long. Their is more so I’ll list all of them in below.

  • You should use good vocabulary’s so that it makes it easier for the reader to hear the voice.
  •  You can put voice over after recording if the sound is not clear. This is useful because it it makes it easier to hear the voice and also it prevent from viewers to miss out important words.
  • The tutorials should have steps and this helps because if the tutorial is broken into little pieces than it makes it easier for the viewers to follow the tutorial. It also had clear and simple step and this helps because it makes it easier for the readers to understand and be able to do the steps easily.
  • The tutorials should had picture or videos in the tutorial. This is good because this makes it easier for the viewers to understand the tutorial. Also it makes it easier for the viewers to see the small details that the viewers can’t really imagine just with words.

Thank you for reading my post and I’ll try to post another post on sunday so please check that out too. BYE BYE.

My favorite tutorial

Hola readers!!! This week I did a homework called tutorial research and I watched 3 videos and I would want to share you guys my favorite tutorial video.

I thought this was the best tutorial video because He was explaining and, acting. This made it easier for me because it helped me put the image in my head so that when I play soccer I can remember the action he did and the word he explained.He also explained and act by step by step. This made it easier for me to understand because if you explained step by step it becomes simple.The last reason why I thought this video was the best tutorial video is because he putted word in the video so while he’s saying something you can read the word on the screen. This makes it easier for me to understand because sometimes the word he says is not that clear so I can read the word on the screen.

From this video I learned Knuckleball is a type of shot that makes the ball drop really fast and moves around randomly.I learned it’s easier to kick knuckle ball shot with a cliff because cliff can stop your Pivot foot from moving.I learned if you kick the soccer ball right in the middle than I can shoot a knuckleball shoot.

Minecraft Biome project

Preparation Questions (can be bullet points)

 

  1. Go to the Biome description for Minecraft. Choose a biome to build in (it must be a REAL physical environment)

I will chose Tundra for my biome(Frozen River in minecraft) because most of my project I chose is hot biome so this time I want to research about cold biomes and I would also want to find some facts about this biome too.

 

  1. Summarize in your own words, the minecraft description of your biome.

This biome is a biome that is cold, snows and have lakes that are frozen.

  1. Find two other sources (Factmonster or School.eb might be good) and write down 10 facts about the biome.

Fact 1. The person who lives in that biome lives in a wooden house that has a triangle roof.

Fact 2. A lot of people still build igloos but most people now live in houses.

Fact 3. Their is 400 varieties of flowers.

Fact 4. The tundra covers about one fifth of the land on earth.

Fact 5. Extremely cold climate.

Fact 6. The word tundra comes from the Finnish word tunturia which means treeless land.

Fact 7. The tundra biome is the driest place on Earth. Rainfall averages ten inches a year.

Fact 8. During the summer, it is daylight 24 hours a day.

Fact 9. The largest animal that lives in the tundra biome is the polar bear.

Fact 10. There are a lot of oil mines and oil rigs in the tundra biome.

 

Find 5-10 pictures of the biome. Insert them here.

  1. Find 5-10 pictures of houses or homes in the biome. Insert them here.

  1. List 3-5 advantages of living in this biome.

1 Advantage. There’s a lot of coals and mine.

2 Advantage. You can fish a lot from the ice lake.

3 Advantage. The land price is cheap.

  1. List 3-5 disadvantages of living in this biome.

1 Disadvantage. Tundra is really cold.

2 Disadvantage. There’s not much animals.

3 Disadvantage. Sometimes you can get lost and die.

Important questions for research (should be full sentences / short paragraphs – this will be a blog post later):

 

  1. Define the biome and its climate. What makes it different from other biomes?

This biome is different from other climate because it’s really cold.

  1. Describe the biome’s plant and animal life. How have the plants and animals adapted to fit the biome?

Animals like polar bear adapted Their white fur that helps them blend in with the snow and ice.

Polar bear also adapted by having a lot of fat under their skin so that it keeps them warm.

List some good examples of places where this biome is found on the Earth.

 

This biome is in a lot of countries like antarctic russia, Norway, Sweden, Finland, the US state of Alaska and northern Canada.

 

  1. Describe – What real buildings are good examples of traditional life in this biome? Who built them and when? (add some pictures and sources if possible)The house in tundra has triangle roof and basically a lot of people started to make a triangle house so their is not specific person who first build this.

  2. Explain – what features of the building show that the people adapted to live in that particular biome?

I think making the roof triangle helps because if the snowfall on the roof it will slide on the ground because the roof is triangle but if the house is flat then the snow will squash or cover your house. I think this is how they adapted.

  1. (Extra credit /Early finishers:) How would you design a new house or other living space for living well in this biome? What special features, materials, etc. would it have, and why?

I would use the materials in the biome so that I can feels like livinb in the biome and I would use a lot of land because in real life the land is free or really cheap in tundra. I would want to use a stair case to make the roof.

 

  1. Make a blueprint / chart / map of your design. Show the features that will help the house fit in the biome.

This is my design and I would want to make my roof pointy and make chimney to keep the house warm. I would also want to make another house and connected with my original house.
