Passion Project 1 – Finished Product

In my first Passion Project i achieved what i was hoping to achieving, although my expectations were dropped because i forgot that i might not have as good drawing skills as some other people who do them and my lighting and setup might not have been the best.

What were some challenges?

Some of the challenges i ran into were…

We couldn’t find a good item to make it so my phone/camera was on a horizontal angle and centred in the middle of the whiteboard. Instead we had to use a microphone stand and then we had to sticky tape a selfie stick to the end of the microphone stand because it would not fit were the microphone usually is and it would always fall.

Also we couldn’t get the video’s from my phone/camera onto the computer and only some photo’s from my phone/camera would appear, i think this is because i uploaded my camera roll on my phone/camera to the i-cloud to save storage, so what we had to do was use a U.S.B which was annoying because it took a very long time.

I also ran into a problem where i might not have had a very good microphone because my family’s good microphone is in storage so what i ended up doing was using a old headset, which surprisingly seemed to have a decent microphone.

And lastly with the editing i accidentally clicked a button that made the audio mute but i fixed it, i accidentally zoomed in where you put the content and had to get it so it would at least worked decently well, and it was hard because i had to the video’s sync up with the audio, but i made this easier by looking at how long the time was of the audio and making the video the same duration, and also i sped up every video a bit and then memorised how long they go for so that i would record my different parts so that they go for around about the same amount of time.

My Dad helped me with this project.

Here is a picture of the setup i used.

DC Cartoon

Today we looked at Digital Citizenship Cartoons, we got to chose between around about 3 cartoons to pick.

I chose this image because i found it funny because…

-They are on a date an the boy is on their phone

-The boy isn’t making eye contact

-I think what the girl is saying is funny because you are supposed to look at each other when you are on a date but the boy isn’t and she says it in sort of like a jokey way


What is the Message?…

  • That people are so addicted to technology and social media that they sometimes they might not live a good life and they probably need to have at least a little bit of balance

Now that i have analysed this cartoon do i still find this funny?…

  • Yes i do because the joke still apply’s

Win At The Fair

Win At the fair is a game where, well you have to win at the fair, first we got given a sheet to play the game, but the sheet wasn’t fair, It had way too high numbers,¬† a low entry fee of $1 and it was a high chance to roll on the tiles with a lot of money to lose. Everybody had 10 go’s of getting an amount of money from the game at fair, here is the data.

The next time we created one it was the “creative” game at the fair, this game was the first Try of creating a game board that will work in order to make us money, here is some what my “creative” game board looked like and some data from 10 turns of rolling and getting on a tile that contains money.

The Game board after that, the 2nd Fair Game Board was supposed to be the updated version of the “creative” Fair Game Board, it was supposed to be the final game board, i put this game board into maths 300 and sadly i could not have the $0.50 in front of the start sign, but here are the results i have had after the 2nd Fair Game Board.

I lost $714.25 and i lost $0.71 each game, I think i could improve by making the higher numbers down the bottom only and the lower numbers up the top, so that it is higher chance to roll a lower number. I have run out of time to test this 4 times or to create a new game board, sorry. But this was an activity that definitely  made me think.

Digital Etiquette

What is Netiquette? Netiquette is kindness and manners shown online, For example not being mean online and not sending someone mean messages like “you suck,” instead sending people nice messages like “great job today.”

What is Flame Wars? Flame Wars are when People start arguing on the internet, for example somebody might say they don’t like Star Wars then some Star Wars fan might get mad and then start arguing.

What is a Internet Troll? An Internet Troll is someone who likes to look for flame wars, for example a little kid might love star wars and then internet troll might comment about star wars and say someone bad and then they might have a flame war.

When Tim says “once your message is out, it’s out” it means that things can stay on the internet forever and to be careful what you put on the internet.

Sometimes online somebody might have an anonymous name, so you might not know who they and sometimes they might say something mean because the person is not saying it to the other person’s face and they might not know each other or each other’s name’s.

If you are young it is great to get permission to post something on the internet because you might make the wrong decision and it can stay up there forever.
