#REFLECT Passion Project

PLEASE watch this


Doing my passion project was alot of fun but i wasnt able to squeeze in enough time for everything I wanted like this weekend I had to film some surfing but overall I think I did well. This process was hard to make a surfboard and I think I would of made one out of wood if I did it again.

I struggled to get enough footage so it’s more just me making it, I had one big problem was that i didnt have any fiberglass left so i couldnt glass my board. I struggled with my footage cause it was 6 degrees when I filmed soooo and the videos of me drawng and cutting the board was blury and I couldnt find the footage so I had to reinact it so this was a big clefuffelin the end i was happy with it ive just got done editing and yeah.

Netiquette= being netiquette means you are etiquette online.

Flaming/Flame wars= flame wars are were you have an argument online with someone.

Trolls= are people that try to look for arguments to make themselves feel better and they can hack someone’s account

Anonymous =  Anonymous means that you are either faking your identity or pretending to be someone else.

Communicating clearly= 1. using emoji’s to express your self. 2. having proper grammar and spelling so that you don’t confuse whoever your talking to. 3. don’t use abbreviations and make words shorter like gtg c u l8r. 4. don’t use caps because your reader might think that your angry or get the wrong idea.

Permission= you have to ask someone for there permission for a photo or something that you want to share.

Win at the Fair

First, with ‘Win At The Fair,’ we started by playing the original game board. (see above) After gathering the data, we realised that this game board isn’t profitable for the fair manager. We played 117 games of this board and the yet we had to give out $213.40. This meant that overall, once 117 games were played, the manager lost $96.40. That meant that if we wanted to gain money instead of lose it, we would need to change the board one way or another.

We were told to change the original game board so that the manager of the game/fair would make money. After 1000 games we hoped to make $300 profit. This meant that we had to create a board that looked intriguing and made profit, I tried a lot of different boards they were all successful but most of them weren’t intriguing and the audience would look at it an be like ‘uh I aint gonna make no money’ 

After we messed around with our own game board and with our own rules like have balckholes and time warps and taking away money if you landed on spot Mr Henderson gave us strict rules like you cant put 10 cent prizes in the middle or move any position we were only allowed to change the way the arrows go so when you role the dice you can go up left or right and we could change how much things costed.

When we started using maths 300 it was just doing tests for me and seeing were the dice landed most and were I should have the directions of the arrows and what number went were I started to make adjustments so I would be making more money. Here are some of my attempts.

1st attempt

3rd attempt

last try.

These boards are better then Mr Henderson’s because we are making more money and these are intriguing especially my last one because  I’m making 450 dollars and it looks like you will make money.

Digital Citizensip.

This week in Triple R we learnt about Digital Citizenship. What we did in Digital Citizenship is we watched a video of the future and what it looked like but we focused on acronyms and we did a THINK acronym. An acronym is a word or name formed as an abbreviation from the initial components in a phrase or a word, usually individual letters here is an example. 






but we used the word think.

Passion Project #2

For my passion project I have cut the surfboard and is now 4ft 8 from tail to nose and I have sand the back of the board and rounded it of I still have to glass the board and fix a few pressure dings from when the board was stomped surfing the board is also very thin so I think it will be quite hard to surf but I will also make a video of my friend and I surfing it.🙌🏄🏿‍♂️. We have also captured some videos and photos of us surfing along the way here is 1.

Passion Project

For my passion project what I want to do is with a snapped surfboard I have turn it into a twin fin 4 ft 8 and very small and thin but make a time lapse out of it then surf it and make an edit and that’s about it.

Birke Baehr TED Talk

See the source image

I feel like Birke was trying to get kids and adults to bye organic foods because all these non organic foods have chemicals and all these bad things for you in it but he also wanted people to know where your food comes from and what’s in it in his own words “would you rather pay the farmer, or the doctor’

I think one of the main messages in this TED Talk was to know where your food comes from, and know what is in it. As he said, “Would you rather pay the farmer, or the hospital?”. Another message in this TED Talk was that no matter how old you are, you can change the world. He also stated, “We can change the world, one kid at a time”.

The biggest way (well in my mind) he got the messages across to the audience was by showing pictures like the fish tomato and also having a serious voice with good eye contact.

Birke used a microphone witch helped him project his voice so that the audience could understand him considering that he has a really American accent. Birke didn’t have a script which meant he would of practiced this quite a lot.

1 really annoying thing about Birke was defiantly his hands because he just kept throwing them up and down which got really really annoying


Richard Turere TED Talk

I feel like Richard wanted to stop poaching and killing of animals by coming up with his inventions. I also think he was trying to say that violence is not the answer in a situation like his.

Some of the ways he got his message to the audience were by putting really powerful images in the background of his talk. He also made jokes with the audience.

The microphone helped project his voice so that people could hear him.

Some of the good presentation techniques were remembering his script, this TED talk was  His staging was good and he moved around the stage, but didn’t go off to the side.

I really liked this TED talk it was probably one of my favourites.

Thomas Suarez TED Talk

I think that the main message of Thomas Suarezezszs TED Talk was that any one any age or any knowledge can develop apps and or games efficiently.

To help get Thomas’s message across to the audience he engaged with them. He did this by making them laugh with jokes that werent really funny but they laughed. By doing this it makes the audience more engaged him and what he was talking about.

I liked how he moved around the stage and didnt just stand in the same spot and be all boring. His eye contact with the audience was also really good which just made the whole thing more interesting but i liked the most how he had little dot points so he didnt loose track and he knew what bit he was talking about but yet didnt really look at the script and just kept eye contact.
