My Tutorial & My Favorite Tutorial

In tech class these weeks, we were researching about tutorials and chose our best tutorial. Then we made a simple tutorial in our google presentations. We first needed to say what was the good and bad parts about the tutorial. We gave each one the advantages and disadvantages.


The difference of my tutorial and my favorite tutorial is my tutorial showed one way of using the technique but the video explains 2 ways of using this technique in any time. My favorite tutorial told us what to be ready for first but I didn’t. For example he said at the beginning that you need to water bottles. But I never told the audience what they needed. But we used arrows and circles to make it clear and my favorite tutorial didn’t. But we both made our tutorial simple and easy.

I enjoyed this project and learned about the different the strongness and effect from the disaster to the humans.


Investigate Reflection

In technology class these weeks, we have been learning and researching about tutorials. We were working on the investigate stage of the unit. We analysed different tutorials. We basically said what was bad and good and what the tutorial needed to improve so we knew what is bad and good. We made a document called “Tutorial Research.” I watched video’s about PRANKS and this is my post of my favorite tutorial.


During the research part, I  learned a lot of things. I learned that the sound and video of the tutorial effects the viewer and the viewer will like the tutorial if they have all of the things below:

I think these are the things that makes tutorial good and I think that the tutorials needs to include MORE than the above.

After we researched, we looked at other students blog and commented on their blog! We wrote what we learned from their favorite tutorial and what the video needs to improve and we could chose anyone’s blog to comment on. I commented on Kenryo’s, Tsuyoshi’s, and Everest’s blog. On Kenryo’s tutorial I learned that you shouldn’t speak fast in your tutorial or the audience will get lost. I also learned that if you talk confidentially with no mistakes, the audience will not get impatient and will like the video. In Tsuyoshi’s tutorial, I learned that you need to put your camera steady and keep so the audience will understand more. Also, in Everest’s tutorial I learned that if the video quality is horrible, then the audience will get impatient and the video will be bad.

After all finding out things and researching things, we finally made our OWN practice tutorial on google presentation. We knew what to do well on and what to be cautious about but we only had 30 minutes to finish the tutorial and this is my tutorial:

Hope you learn!  WARNING: This only works for MAC


Then we needed to compare our tutorial to our favorite tutorial and thought about what was the good part and bad part of our tutorial. We needed to do the next stage, Compare & Contrast!!


This is my favorite prank making tutorial

The difference of my favorite tutorial and my tutorial is that my favorite tutorial told us 2 different ways to use the prank but in my presentation, there was only one way to use the technique. Also, in my favorite tutorial, it showed what you needed first but in my tutorial, I never showed what you needed. But I used lots of arrows and loops but my favorite tutorial didn’t show circles or arrows. I think we both put details and made the tutorial easy to understand.


I also learned that you need your tutorial to be clear and easy (simple) to understand. You can do this by doing editing or doing things such as voice overing.


I liked my tutorials and I think I will make more tutorials.

Comparing Decimals

Today in math class, Tsuyoshi and I found three objects and measured the height and width to find out the area of the object. We searched for different objects and we found three cool objects.


Our first object we measured fire extuinguisher case. The height was 1301mm and the width was 693 mm which becomes 901593 mm squared area. Our second object was a chest and it was 433.5 mm by 803 mm. It was 348100.5 mm and it was quite big. The last object was 889 mm and the width was 1651 which made the area 1467739mm.

My Favorite Tutorial

Hi. This week, we made a tutorial research by watching tutorial research and explained what was good and what was bad. We reviewed on the video’s and we will make a tutorial.

This video is about prank traps. This explains how to revenge your victim. This video is really unique because the guy thought about a fabulous idea of how to recycle a bottle in a very evil, but fun way. While I was watching the tutorial, I thought of how creative the guy was and how simple his trick was.

There was awesome things. First of all, the voice was really clear and easy to understand. This is good because this made the viewer not annoyed because of the video sound. For example, sometimes, there is a high pitch sound that is annoying and distracting. Secondly, the clip was really good and the camera was held in one place so it wasn’t wobbly. This was really good because if the camera is steady, the viewer will be patient and won’t quit watching the video. Lastly, it showed about him doing the trick, then he explains the method, steps, and how it works. This is good because after the guy tried the trick, he gave us time to make the trap.

I think this trick is useful because you can recycle bottles. Also I think this is a easy self-woking trick that people fall for it.

Next, there is a simple traps to see whether someone is touching your things or not.

This video is good because the guys voice was really clear and smooth. This made the video really quick but explaining simply. The clip went in a certain pace which made the viewer patient and calm. Also, it was really detailed step by step. This is good because you know what to do on every detailed part so it is a low chance to make a mistake.

This video was good because you know if someone is snooping your stuff. Also, you can find out who is doing it in a prank fun way.

These video’s are useful and fun traps!!
