Passion Project

For my passion project I was thinking of making pom pom animals because I think that making pom poms is really fun but then I saw pom pom animals and I knew I would love making them. I tried it once and I loved it. I think making this will help me be more creative as well.

When I make them I’m going to do a time laps video of me making them and explaining how you make them, I’ll make them in my bed room because I have a desk and a colourful wallpaper. I know this will take a while but I’m going to enjoy making it because its something I love doing.

Birke Baehr’s Ted Talk

I think that his main message was that you should eat organic food and that the best looking food is not the healthiest food that you can get, and that it’s better to use your money on organic food instead of getting sick and needing to go to the doctors. I also think he want’s people to know that 1 kid can make a different’s because they could tell some on and they would tell someone else and it would go on and on.

While he was doing his talk he put some humour into it like when he was talking about a tomato fish, he also had some other jokes that made the audience get into the talking more.

When he did it he had a microphone so you could hear him better when he talked and he also had a screen behind him so the audience could see pictures and visualise everything better and more.

He was talking loudly so that the audience could hear him even without a microphone and even though he had a really heavy accent you could still understand him. He also had really good eye contact because he didn’t have a script so he didn’t have to look down, and since he didn’t have a script he practiced it a lot and you could tell he knew it really well because he didn’t have a break like you would usually do if you forget something. He also moved around the stage a lot so he didn’t stay in one spot.

In this blog post I think the main message is that either you can do what you set your mind to or that you can solve big problems with small solutions. I also think its that you can solve problems without being  violent.

When he did his ted talk when he wanted it to be serious he would talk in a serious tone but when he wanted to cut the tension in between he would do a small laugh. He mainly cut the tension when he was saying he broke his mums new radio to find out more about electronics,” She nearly killed me that day”.

When he did it he had the projector behind him so they could see what he was talking about more than them having to visualise everything. He also had a treehouse behind him so they could kind of see what his house was like or what it was like to live there, it was also for some scenery. He also had a microphone so the talking would be louder even though he was quite loud when he talked it helps people in the back of the audience hear him better.

I think he used his PowerPoint really well because he had some good pictures on it to show you what he actually used and how  he made it. He also matched his talking to the picture so it would make sense. He also moved around the stage a bit and used some hand jesters to help the audience understand him better. Even thought his accent was quite strong he also tried his best to make it clear for the audience. The pictures on his presentation were really strong so the audience could understand how he felt when his animals died.

Thomas Suarez TED Talk

I think that the main message to this film is that he started making apps and he want to continue making them but make them bigger and better. I also thing that he wants other people to be able to do things and make apps like him and I think he wants us to know that we can do what we set our minds to. While he did this he also made it funny so that the audience would find it more entertaining and be into it more whiles he’s explaining his things and talking. He also said thing that would draw the audiences attentions. When he was doing this talk he used an iPad that had some notes on it so he would know what to say and help him if he got stuck or forgot about something, he also had a screen behind him so the audience could see some pictures to see what he was talking about more and they would understand him more. He had a microphone as well so the audience could here him better when he talks because with out the microphone you wouldn’t be able to here him properly as they were in such a bit area. Whiles he was doing this he used his slideshow really well because it was clear and you could see the pictures properly. He also didn’t look at his iPad a lot so you could see had had eye contact with the audience but he also used some expretions and moved around the stage a bit instead of staying in one spot the whole time he was talking.
