Passion Project #Reflection

Towards the end I was adding as I went and nothing changed to what I originally wanted going to do, all i did was add to the film. The two challenges i faced were finding the right time to do it and stressing over finishing it, but I eventually overcome these challenges which definitely made my project better. If I were to continue this project I would probably go on a sugar diet and explain the effect of having lots of sugar compared to what effects that happen when you are off sugar. Sorry I couldn’t get an image yet.Image result for sugar

Win At The Fair

Starting Point

At the start, I partnered up with ditch to play the losing game. In our class data it definitely showed that this game was loosing money, the main reason was that the minimum prize, 20c was at the top and the only numbers that would get it up there were 6,7 and 8, which makes it one of the lower chance ones to land on.

The Problem

I wasn’t here for the problem but I tried my best to understand it. The main reason I think my game is enticing is that the top prize is $400, and because the prize is so big it will distract the player from the chances, and if one of the players is smart enough to look at the chances he or she will see that you can role a 2 to go left (There is only one way to role a 2) and a 1 (For extra enticement even though it is impossible to role a 1) and a 12 to go right (There is also only 1 way to role a 12) and of course another 1 to go right for enticement.

Official Board

For my official game board my tally of ten games turned out to be ok, I got 6 20c winners and 4 25c winners, which means the total that got put in to play was $10, the total I had to give out was $2.20, so the total I made was $7.80. On the software in 1000 games, my best average per game was 22c, so that means on average every game I make 78c.


In one of the lessons my main goal was to find out which number on 2 dice has the least chance of being rolled. That’s were I got 2 and 12 from, and that’s what i think boosted my game. the other reason my game is quite enticing is that i actually showed my mum my game board and she said “I would definitely play your game zephy, but it is a bit of a gamble”. And I was looking at her eyes and not once did she look at the chances even though I mentioned it to her! As i said my average per game was 78 cents on the software, so that proves that my game will profit the school some money.




Digital Etiquette

Today we watched a video of Moby and Tim to show us what a digital etiquette is.

Netiquette-Netiquette means nearly the same as etiquette, the only difference is that etiquette means real life and netiquette means online. They are a set of rules online.

Flame wars- A flame war is really just a fight, but online. It is when 2 or more people are arguing, being rude or throwing hate at the other person. 

Trolls- Trolls are like trolls in real life, mean, ugly and rude except online again. it is someone who wants to purposely start a flame war.

Anonymous- John do, is a name that people can use if they want to be anonymous. It is when someone doesn’t want their true identity to be known.

Communicating clearly-

1) If you use CAPITALS the receiver might think you are yelling

2) If you are being sarcastic the receiver might think you are serious

3) Reread what you are about to send, post or text.

Permission- If you want to post or send something that might be personal to someone else ask their permission before you do it because they might not want anyone to see it.

What does Tim mean when he says ‘Once your message is out, it’s out’?

I think it means if you send something it has sent forever and you cannot get it back, so that’s why you have to read over it so its not in capitals or clearly sarcastic and not mistaken.

Think Online

Today we learned how to behave online. I don’t have any social media apps or that type of stuff but what I learned was that you should always think before you do something online. I also learned that you wouldn’t go up to someone and treat them badly in person but on online you might treat each other differently which Is not good.T=you have to be honest. H= You have to be helpful not unhelpful?. I=inspire others. N= is it needed or necessary. K= is it kind, will it make someone happy?



For this poster I had the exact same words




Passion Project #Update

IImage result for bath full of lollies am half way finished through my filming for my sugar film. So far I have explained what natural sugar is and how it is better than processed sugar. I have also included a little story at the start. I have got a bit overwhelmed when I was explaining what natural sugar was for some reason. The next step is to plan more scenes and then to film them with more cool facts then do some experiments to show how bad sugar really is.  


Sorry I could get a photo of my real film yet, I hope that’s ok. 🙂

Birke Baehr’s TED Talk

The main message I took out of this ted talk was that you should just pay the extra dollar to a local farmer that doesn’t use bad chemicals instead of buying cheap chemical filled food and then after a while of eating chemical filled food you will end up at the hospital, and that you can follow your dreams to be what ever you want to be e.g. he said he wanted to be and N.F.L player until he found out he wanted to be an organic farmer.

He got his message over to his audience really well to me because he had a very powerful voice and he definitely made it sound like he knew what he was saying instead of making it sound like you have no idea what you are talking about and no passion for what your saying either.

For me the technical support really helped his talk, he used a projector with pictures and he used a microphone. it made him sound very professional.

His best part about his presentation was his voice because he sounded VERY confident and VERY passionate and his country accent made him sound like a proper farmer too. As I said and his eye contact really must have connected him to the audience. And he did make the audience crack up a bit too.

Richard Turere’s TED

I found his main message he was trying to get across to us was that there are simple and less violent ways to animal problems and that if you think outside the box and not give up you will eventually succeed without hurting anything.

I found it hard to understand what he was saying at some points but what he did to really help me understand were the powerful pictures on the wall behind him coming from the projector. They really cleared out what he was saying and helped me visualise too. The best part about the slide show for me was the lights and how they looked in a lions perspective.

I thing the technical support really polished off his talk because as I said the projector helped me visualise what he was saying and the microphone makes it clearer to hear his voice, which is what everyone wants!

I think the best part that I really connected with was the humour, because it was sort of like a quick break for him to hook in the audience encase some get bored but I highly doubt that because this was a very great TED talk. He also shared his eye contact with the whole audience to which also would have hook the audience individually.

Thomas Suarez TED Talk

I think the main massage was that kids can do anything no matter what age they are and to follow their passion to help shape their future.

I found he caught the audience with a bit of humour to regularly hook the audience. When someone tells a joke on TV it really hook me in while making me happy.

For his TED talk he used a microphone, his IPad for dot points, and the screen behind him.

I found he really captured me by moving around in stead of just standing in one spot, his eye sight was very capturing because he barley looked at his iPad which made him look very professional.Image result for thomas suarez
