this term I intend to do a footy clinic for the junior school kids I was going to do this footy clinic in term two but there were complications so I am very excited to do it now. I’m not going to use any technologies apart from an HFG camera but I suppose I might learn about that. well I will be using less complicated words so they little kids get confused so my film will be aimed at younger people like year 3’s and below. I’m really looking to interacting with the little kids and just having fun playing and teaching them a bit of footy.
In the Culture of the World challenge, we had to pick a country that is unique and that we wanted to learn about. We had to research the flag, the social behaviours so sport and food, the religion and the traditions.
There are a couple of differences between Fijian culture and my and family’s traditions. Firstly, they have traditional ceremonies and my family don’t. Also, their national sport is rugby, although Australians play rugby our national sport is AFL.
Although there are lots of differences there are also a couple of similarities. The Fijian flag has the symbol of Great Britain in the top left corner this means Australia and Fiji both respect great Britain. Also, both countries have religions that believe in Jesus and god and both these religions are the most popular.
If I lived in Fiji I don’t think I would like most of their food because most of their food is made of fish and i don’t like fish.
as soon as I found out I made the VIC team I knew I was going to get photos from my experience in WA I wanted to do this because I knew Lucious’ dad was going to get some great photos of me and the team. I did not really have any challenges because it was not a very hard project apart from trying to download the photos from my mum’s phone to my computer to fix this I just got my brother how knows a lot about technology and he got it done. I didn’t have any successes apart from getting my film done if that counts. somehow I would put commentary over the photos that would be kind of cool but I have no idea how to do that.

this term I intend to create I video of my experience playing for victoria in footy. it will have photos of the practice matches, the jumper presentation, and the nationals carnival. the only technology I will use is adobe premiere to edit all the video. my project is mostly targeted at people who want to learn about the national carnival process. I’m most looking forward to actually going to WA to play in the carnival.
What do you intend to create? What technologies are you planning to use/learn about? Who is your project targeted at? What are you looking forward to?
I did not achieve what I was originally going to do but I did something fun and informative. over the process I faced so many challenges. I originally set out to do a footy clinic for the junior school kids but because of their schedule I had to wait until the last couple of weeks but then the weather was bad so we had to call off the clinic so I was left with no passion project. then I thought of just getting all the footy photos of me into a movie but then I remembered that I get photos when I play footy for Victoria so I decided to do that next term. then I decided to go with a new project on Joel Selwood about how he does not shrug. the main thing I did to over some these challenges was to stay calm and because I love footy so much I had so many ideas that I would love to use so it was not that hard to get it done well and quickly. because I had just one week to complete this I did not get all the information possible but I still got a bit. if I had my time again I would have put much more information in the project to make it more interesting.
Did you achieve what you originally set out to do? What successes or challenges did you experience toward the end of your project? How did you overcome the challenges? How can you extend your learning if you were to continue with this project?

I’ve achieved a bit, I have gone down to the junior school to say I will have a footy clinic soon and I have sent a lot of emails to Mr Schuyler to organize the clinic. I have had to make myself check my emails a lot more so that has up skilled me a bit because now I’m more organized. I have been really busy sending emails so that was hard and I was meant to do the clinic in week 6 but I have to do it in week 7 now because of the junior schools schedule. the next thing I have to do is film the clinic then edit.
this term I intend to make a video of me running a footy clinic for the preps year 1’s 2’s and 3’s. this will have little pointers on how to play footy and how to kick, just the basics but its mainly just filming the kids having fun playing footy and me teaching them a bit about footy. I think I will just use a HFG with a shot gun mic if it is a little bit windy if it is very windy I will use lapel mics and a HFG camera and if it is a good day I will use a zoom camera. because I’m working with younger kids I will use less sophisticated language so it is probably aimed for preps to 3’s. I’m most looking forward to just having fun with the kids and making them better footy players.

Birke had a lot of messages in his TED talk one was that kids can make a difference by getting their family and cousins to buy local and organic. another message was that farmers mix DNA for growing purposes and they use dangerous chemicals to make their soil better. another message was that company’s make their products from those chemical filled plants that are not healthy and not good for the environment. Birke had lots of powerful stats one was that you could pay the farmer or the hospital. he said this because he was talking about the chemicals some farmers put in their and he was saying that some people think that local farmers charge more and that’s when he said you can pay the farmer or the hospital. this is powerful because it is confronting. another one was that he used to want to be a NFL footballer but now he wants to be a organic farmer. this is powerful because he is basically saying he is willing to make a living out of doing the right thing. the last powerful comment was that there is a farmer that is deemed crazy because he dose not use the chemicals that everyone else uses. this is powerful because this man is doing the right thing and people are saying his crazy.
The main message was that no animal deserves to die. That means that there is no point to killing animals when you can just make something and save time and animals.
Richard got his message across very well. He weaved his message into a story. This is effective because it makes the audience feel emotion. Also he used lots of pictures to entertain and to help explain his story.
Richard used a bit of technical support like the usual head set to project his voice to the audience. He also used a clicker to change the pictures behind him these helped because they backed up what he was saying.
Richard used a couple of presentation techniques, like putting humour into the suitable bits but he did not put to much in because it was a serious topic. He also put a timeline in so he sort of took the audience on a journey and made them feel emotion.
In Thomas’ talk the message was clear, the main message I took away was that kids are capable to make games and be successful in the technology world and to get people involved. he made this clear by not steering away from this message and even using some humour. he got his message across very well he talked with emotion to intrigue the audience. to make his presentation the best it could be he used a bit of technology like a head set to get his voice over to the back of the room. the used a clicker to get images on the screen and he used his I pad with his lines on it to refer to if he got stuck. he used some great presentation techniques to engage the audience, he used humour to make the audience listen to every word, he went over relatable topics so the audience could relate to what he was saying and he used great emotion in his words and used hand gestures to entertain the audience.
