Complete Tutorial Reflection

Hi guys this is my tutorial I made for my technology. It is a card trick magic tutorial so please watch and enjoy!

After we had finished our tutorial, we were supposed to comment on other people’s tutorials. I commented on Rei, Liam, and Alex’s blog.

 

Now I will reflect on my tutorial using, connect, extend, and challenge.

 

Connect

 

When we were making the tutorial, we made our class criteria. I think that the voice over/clear voice was very important. I tried my best not to forget something in the class criteria because I didn’t want to miss anything and make my tutorial bad. I also think editing and easy angles for the viewer is very important. Also, I wanted to remember the class criteria because I didn’t want to miss anything from the criteria at the end.

 

I think I did well on teaching the magic step-by-step and my video angle was great (because I used my stable computer). I think I did well on the step-by-step because when there is a magic tutorial, you need to teach the audience, step by step. I think my angle was steady and the viewer can view it easily.

 

I think missed some of the criteria’s. The criteria I missed were, video quality,tips & tricks and explanation. I think I should have used a better camera because my quality was a little bit blurry, although it wasn’t horrible. I think at least I should have used a phone or camera (I used my computer). I think I didn’t include tips&tricks. I could have said some tricks of doing the trick easier or some tips for getting the magic trick more interesting. Also, I could have explained more clearly and I could have used easier words because sometimes, I sometimes used hard words. Also, my voice quality wasn’t great so I should have improved more on my voice criteria’s.

 

Extend

 

I think I should have added more easy words and made the viewer comfortable to listen. I think I should have spoke more slow because I personally think I spoke very fast and I think the viewer might not understand what I was saying. Before I uploaded my video, my tutorial was extremely too long. I tried to fast forward but still, it was too long. Then I thought about fast forwarding the video, 500%. When I did that, it was hard to voice over (I couldn’t use my original voice because my pitch was very high). But even though with my voice over, the length became fine and my video was a decent time. If I compared my tutorial with Liam’s tutorial, his voice was very clear and he didn’t stumble, and he spoke in a loud voice. Liam’s voice was very easy to understand and he explained very well on his tutorial.

Challenge

 

If I was to make a new tutorial soon, there are some things that might struggle me from completing it. First, is the length and voice over. If my video is long, I must fast forward it. Although, if I fast forward it, the voice recording will be extremely hard. I can’t use my recording for my video audio because my voice is going to be very high and fast. I also think my biggest challenge is my video quality. This is the biggest because when I record, until I finish, I won’t be able to know if my tutorial has good quality or not. So after I record it for a long time, and check my video and if the video quality is bad, I need to start over my video with a different device. I think finding the best recording device is very hard. If I compare my video quality with Rei’s blog post, Rei’s video quality was much better than my tutorial quality. Rei used his screen recording so he used a good application so I think I should use something better than my normal recording.

 

I think other people’s tutorial is good too and I also liked how other people’s tutorial’s were very unique and I liked how everyone’s tutorial had a different beginning/intro. This made me hook in the tutorial. I think it is very important to make someone hook into a tutorial at the beginning or else, the viewer will not want to watch the tutorial.

Science Salt Sand Separation Experiment

Hello. We did an experiment on separating a sand and salt mixture. We need to write a few steps to separate only the salt.

Ingredients:

-100ml beaker with sand and salt (beaker A)

-Beaker B

-Measuring Cylinder

-Retord stand

-Filter Paper

-Stiring rod

-Funnel

-Ring

-Bunsen burner

-Gauze mat

-Heating mat

-Tripod

-Match

-Safety goggles (Extra safety)

 

You get a 100ml beaker with sand and salt mixture.

1.  Put about 50ml of water in the first beaker.

TIP: Use a measuring cylinder.

2. Mix the beaker until the salt is completely mixed and only the sand is left.

TIP: Use a stirring rod to mix it better.

3. Make a filter paper so we can filter the liquid.

TIP: Fold the paper twice the same way and open it once so you have it half. Stick your hand between the two paper and stretch it out. There is a filter paper.

4. Set the retord stand, ring, beaker B, funnel and filter paper.

5. Pour the liquid from beaker A through into the filter paper.

6. Wait until everything goes through the paper and into the beaker.

7. Get the beaker.

8. Set up the bunsen burner, gauze mat, heating mat, tripod, and beaker.

TIP: Use a straitened gauze mat and tripod.

9. Place the beaker on top of the gauze mat.

10. Plug the bunsen burner.

TIP: Make sure you plug it fast because you don’t want to spill all the gas from the gas plug.

11. Start heating the bunsen with a match.

TIP: When use the match, use it  from the bottom and time by time, when the bottom area doesn’t light, go higher and higher.

12. Wait and watch the bunsen until the water completely evaporates.

TIP: Watch the bubbles and salt coming up for fun.

13. Get the beaker and there should be salt in the beaker!

TIP: Use your mittens!

NOW you are done and took only the salt from the mixture.

 

You can get the salt from the mixtures.

Probability

In math, we have been starting to work on our new unit, probability. There are 5 main words in probability. And I will briefly explain what they are.

 

First is impossible. It means that an event will occur never, or in other numbers 0%. This means that an event will NEVER occur or happen. For example, it is impossible for a person live more than 250 years. This event will NEVER occur because obviously (common sense) you cannot live more than 250 years.

 

Then there is unlikely. It means the percentages are about 17.5% to 37.5%. For example, it is very unlikely to roll a 3 in a 6 sided dice. It is 16.6666….% for a dice to land on one of the 6 sides.

 

There is a word called even chance. This means that there is an even chance of doing an event. So it means that there is 50% chance of occurring. That is the same as 1/2 chance. For example, in one years time, it is about an even chance of the weather to fall something. (Rain, snow, hail, sleet etc.)

 

After, there is a word called likely chance. This means you have more than 50% of occurring an event but there is less than 100% chance of occurring. So that means that there is a high percentage of the event to occur, but it is ALWAYS going to occur. For example, in the weather cast, it can say that it is very likely to be a great sunny day tomorrow.

 

Lastly, there is a word called certain. Certain means that an event is no matter what, is going to occur and is 100% going to occur. For example, it is certain that a human will die someday. This is common sense and you know humans die.

 

These kind of simple easy words are very useful words to use in real life too. These words can mean common sense and are very useful words to describe an percentage or possibility!
