The Lost Princess

The lost princess is about cyber bullying and fake online ID. It shows how people can react and how quickly something that could be a joke can escalate in to getting to police to your front door. They also show how a adult could be pretending to be a child on the internet or social media to trap kids into thinking their children.

The problem that lost princess encountered was that when she went to a kids concert she was expecting to meet a 13 year old boy but turned out to be an adult acting as a 13 year old boy

The negative effect on their lives is that the people  were depressed and sad because they let their password out and then it spread so people would be able to log in to their account. Or someone got their personal details and then acted as someone else to get to them and meet them in real life

to limit their time on technology so they weren’t as addicted. to ask their parents about what they were saying on their messages to people they have never met.

What is the biggest message that YOU take away from their story?

to only trust the people you know and have met before and not to go online and make friends with someone that is 12 years old on the computer but could be 57 years old in reality.

passion project #2 #update

I have collected my drone footage so all I need to do now use my go pro to get some clips from the perspective of the driver and once I have done that I will then edit my film together and I’m considering also putting more than just driving around and drone shots acting as a birds eye view of the buggy. I think I will add some features like slo mo and time lapse into the film as well to make it that bit more interesting.

Passion Project term 3 #1

For my second passion project I will be doing a continuation of my farm photos but this time I’m going to make a safety video in vehicles on my farm but I will show my perspective from the driver seat using a go pro and my drone showing a birds eye view. I will be using either vid lab, iMovie or adobe premiere to edit. I will still add photos but mostly videos. this could possibly change throughout my passion project experience. I will use either my phone or my brothers camera. I cannot wait to see how this goes!

Passion Project #3

Finally I have finished my passion project thanks to one day that was not windy so I could get landscape shots with my drone! My passion project changed due to a malfunction so I had to rethink a lot of it.

in the end I turned out to make a slideshow/ film of what we do out on the farm and showed photos of all different wildlife.

I struggled a bit because a lot of the days I was planning on filming and taking photos were raining and windy so that was a challenge

I am really happy how it turned out and I have really enjoyed the passion project.

In the first lesson of win at the fair we played 117 games, spending $117 dollars and had a total loss of $96.40. each turn was $1 and a majority of the people got one dollar back from the losing board.

And then Mr Henderson gave us the challenge where we would make a creative game board and play a thousand games.

here is my made up game board that was kind of messy with black holes, teleportation, half price X and lightning strike symbols that restarted the game.

and then we had to make an enticing normal game board. Using Maths 300.

this is the tally of our most successful board giving us $440.30 profit. alex and I made it so that we swapped all of the ones around from the losing so that the 1 dollar which was the most common $0.05. we made sure the board was enticing by putting all the more expensive ones closer to the start point.

THINK Online

today we started learning about DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP which is about learning respect, courtesy and kindness on devices we use in our everyday lives. Then the teachers showed us a image of a “acronym” of the word THINK. T= true. if its not true there is no reason to message or post on social media. H= helpful. is it going to help or support someone or is it going to hurt them. I= inspiring. does it inspire someone to do something or is it uninspiring and is not helpful. N= necessary. is it necessary? if not don’t POST it as it can sometimes hurt people in the way you send it without you even knowing. K= kind. if its kind well done because you could be cheering someone.

Passion Project #2

I have started to take videos on my drone. and photos of wildlife on the farm. I have made a tripod out of wood and also got a few of my mates to help me take some photos.

I have also learnt that drones don’t like trees… and that lower ground shots on the drone going fast looks like and action movie video. its easier to mark spots on farm land using a Polaris for where your going to fly.


Passion Project

For my passion project I have decided to take photos of things that I’m interested in out on my farm using various media such as my phone and a drone.

I am interested to see how this turns out and I hope that the photos will capture my subjects eg, animals, plants, landscape etc.

I will present the photos in a bound book as well as a power point presentation using my drone for aerial shots and movie to show the area of the farm from the air.

We have only owned the farm  for 18 months and have bought a lot of animals and cleared a lot of volcanic rock from the area. We have just about finished the house renovation and have sheep about to lamb , chickens that we have raised from 5 days old and are about to start laying in the next couple of weeks. We have had guinea fowl from week old chicks. all of this I will capture through photos.
