#Reflection

I achieved what I originally set out to do that was to reduce the plastic straws in the local area. The success I came across were that I persuaded lots of cafes and bars. The one challenge was the MEX they put out some good question. I over came the challenge by answering his question. I would keep one going by just going to more cafes.

The Lost princess

D.C. Today for D.C we watched a video about internet awareness. the video had 4 characters Lucy who lost her password then bullies sent rude emails to her friends. The Lost Princess was sharing details to someone who she thought was her age but really he was 40!! And Charlotte kept on talking to one person but then here mum found out that they were going to meet and stopped the meeting. But he one that I am talking about is Keiran.

 

Keiran was an addict to games he kept on playing games for 13 hours a day since the age of seven. This negatively affected his life because he was in bad moods and was not getting fresh air. Eventually Keiran realised that he had a bad condition so he talked to his dad about it. If I was Keiran I would of listened to my dad and stopped playing so much games. But the main take-away I got was yes the virtual world may be more fun than the real world sometimes, but that doesn’t mean you spend your whole life on it.

#Description

                                        

For my passion project I intend to create a flyer/info package on “say no to the straw” to help protect our environment.  For technologies I will use my laptop to create my flyer and my info page to give to the owner of the cafe. I am aiming my project at cafe’s and restaurants and any customers they have. In my passion project I am looking forward to make the flyer and going to different cafes to try and encourage them to stop using plastic straws.

DC Cartoons

Today in DC the grade looked at lots of funny but meaningful cartoons to show that technology can get addictive so we looked and analysed the photos and came up with lots of different message that each photo provided.

 

The message in this cartoon is that in the day and age we live in everyone is looking at their phone and not the people they are hanging out with. This is an important message because if every person in the world had a phone and was just sitting at a table or at home in their bed then the world would be a boring place and the environment would fall apart.

After analysing this cartoon I still think that it is a good cartoon because the message is clear.

#Reflect

Photography is my passion, I love taking photos because nothing else matters when you’re eye is up to the lens and you hear the click as your wonderful photo is taken. What I learnt through this passion project is that not to leave it to the last min, Because if you leave it to the last week you feel stressed out. I learnt that the more effort you put in it the better it is. I realised this at the half way line and that is when I started really working hard and getting it done. To take the mid-day photos I walked around my home and to take the sunset photos I went down to the beach it shows that really wanted to get it done. I had lots of fun doing my passion project because i never knew i could take such good photos!!!!

Win at the Fair

Lesson 1

At the start of this subject “Win at the Fair” we played a losing game. In this losing game we were the people trying to make money here is how much money we lost in the data we created.

In the losing game the reason we lost so much money was because there was a high probability that it was going to land on the five and there were only two prizes that made money for the owner.

Lesson 2

In this lesson we made our own game boards on pieces of paper. It was lots of fun because you could put the money anywhere you wanted so in my game board I put 20c in the middle so it was harder to get the jackpot!!! At the start i found it really hard to find a working game but when I found out a strategy and got a working game board i realised that it was not enticing.

Sorry for it being upside down 🙁

Lesson 3

Our problem was to play 1000 games and try and make at least $300. In my game board there were three jackpots $75 $20 and $10. There was only two prize lost you money but I still made more than $300. Here is a photo of my game board in action.

Lesson 4

To make my game profitable I changed the arrows so that only 2,3 were facing right and 11,12 were facing left. By doing that it made it profitable because there was much higher chance of getting 20c and a very low chance of getting $75

To make it enticing I put a lot of jackpots so that people thought that they could get the big prizes but actually it really hard to get the big jackpots.

Digital Etiquette

Netiquette is like etiquette on the internet. It means that when you are on the internet you treat people like you would treat someone in real life.

Flaming/Flame wars: Flame wars are like have a roast battle it basically means you are having a big argument you start using personal info to make the other person get to your side of the argument but it often ruins friend ship.

Trolls are random people that try to start arguments with people and make them feel bad about themselves.

Anonymous is when you have a hidden identity so that if you send something to someone they don’t know who it is so they could report you and you could get in trouble for something you did not intend to do.

Communicating clearly: DON’T USE CAPS LOCK, use emojis and don’t use abbreviations.

Permission: If you want to post something of someone else ask for their permission.

Tim means by saying once it is out you can not get it back off the internet. Because someone will have saved it so it is always out there.

Think Online

The acronym THINK is a acronym used for when you are about to post something online.

In this subject i learnt a lot about texting online. I learnt that if you are going to text something online it has to be nice because if you send something like “bad luck” they could take it the wrong way because they can not see your face or body language.

 

T is for true, if it is not true don’t say it.

H is for helpful, there is no need to say it.

I is for inspiring, inspire them.

N is for necessary, is there any point in saying it.

K is for kind, make sure it is nice.
