We were challenged to make a two page layout. We chose a country to write some facts on. I chose Russia. We split the page in4 and wrote facts in each sections.
Every country has some differences, here are some from Russia and Australia.
~ In winter it snows in Russia, so they wear fur hats.
~Russian has a festival called Masleritsa, it is a week long festival which during that time they light lanterns and let them out in the sky.
~Soccer is one of Russians leading sport, in Australia footy is it’s leading sport.
Every country has some similarity’s.
~Russians play soccer and so dose Australia, but it is not our most common we still play it.
~Russia’s main culture is Christianity and so is Australia’s, we both celebrate Christmas and Easter.
~Russian’s drink tea and coffee although they prefer tea to coffee we still both drink both of them.
If I lived in the Russian culture I think it would not be much different to Australia because we both support Christianity, but the thing I would find most interesting would be the all the festivals like the lantern lighting.
So far I have done the programing for the mice’s movement and also the paint balls.
Some of the challenges I have faced so far is getting the paint balls working when they hit another character.
The next step for me is to fix the paint balls. (I have removed the capture the flag part of the game)
My character witch I chose to write about is Kieran, Kieran got addicted to video games at the age of 7 and did not get off them. He fell asleep in class and dropped out of school at the age of 15.
- I chose Kieran as my character and the problem he encountered was getting addicted to gaming, he was playing night and day.
- When Kieran got addicted to gaming he started to not wash and was unhygienic. he even dropped out of school when he was 15.
- When Kieran finally realised he needed help he went to his dad and asked for help. his dad took him to a specialist to help him.
- When the problem was just starting to develop, they could have done something sooner like take away his electronics and if that did not work than take him to a specialist.
- The main message I took away from this story is to act on it quickly and don’t let the problem develop further.
I intend to create a game on scratch. it will be a paint ball/ capture the flag game. For this project I am going to use my computer to screen record me making the game. I am looking forward to playing the game when it is finished.
This lesson in digital citizenship we were talking about meaning about cartoons and the meanings behind it. Now we are analysing our own photo and the meaning behind it.
I find this comic funny because of the attitude of the girl. And how the guy pays no attention to her.
I think the message behind this comic is how people spend too much time on phones and not much time communicating in person.
This is an important message because we need to know how much time we should spend on phones.
I still find this funny but when you think about it the message behind this photo it is not that funny.
Did you achieve what you originally set out to do?
Yes, I think I got done what I set out to do and show people the basics of roller blading.
What successes or challenges did you experience toward the end of your project?
Some of the challenges I faced was uploading the footage onto my laptop and also trying to put arrows in to point at a direction.
How did you overcome the challenges?
I overcame the challenges by asking my sisters for help because they have done this before.
I was not here for the first lesson, so I will go from where I started.
When I started we had to create a board to win at the fair with no limits, so we cold put $100 all around the board. For the second board we made we had to try and profit. We played ten games again, I profited $4.70. after we collected our data and wrote how we profited and why it was enticing we could move onto Math 300 where we played 1000 test. When we did that we had to try and profit $300, unfortunately I did not get it so I had to rearrange and change prices on the board. When I changed the prices around I ended up profiting around $500 . the prices I have now are 0.20 0.30 0.50 $25 $ 50 $100.
netiquette is the same as etiquette but for the online world.
flame wars is an argument between people and they start insulting each other
a troll is a person who likes starting flame wars and insulting people
being anonymous is a person who ahs a hidden identity
to communicate clearly you should not use caps lock, use Emojis and don’t use slang.
you have to ask permission to post a photo of someone else befor you post it
when you post something and delete it, it is not fully deleted because it was out there for a second and then it is in your history and other people can see it in that 1 second.
What have you achieved so far? What successes or challenges have you experienced so far? What is the next step for you?
So far I have done most of my filming. some of the challenges I have experienced so far is transporting the videos to my computer. next I will need to start to edit.
