Who do you think is going to win the T20 world cup 2010?

April 30, 2010

I think India will not even get through the quarterfinals. All players are out of form for India. It is either West indies, Australia, New zealand or South africa.

I support Pakistan. Just kidding

  • The progress you have made in developing your presentation
  • My presentation has improved because now we are taaking more action and since we are doing a movie we practice and video until we get the perfect one. In our video we try to make everything basically perfect we need to act good, remamber our lines and mostly . To develop our presentation we had more practice and more ideas pop into our head everytime sometimes people have difernt thoughts but we combine them together and make a brilliant idea.  We all try to use high quality cameras and more.

  • What you have achieved so far
  • In our exhibition we have been able to remember our lines more because we have had practice. Before we said we would just get going with th movie hold the script so we could read off the paper, but now it is much more we remembered it of by heart we helped eachother with the problems we had and now we have reached a bigger succsess. At the begging we didnt have much hope in our selves but now we are doing what we are meant to.

  • Who was helped you and how (if anyone)
  • The people who has helped us the most is acctually Mr. Chris we did not use any compass quides or anything but Mr. Chris always helped us improve what we were working on Mr. Chris also got some people to come and talk to us about how to make a good presentation and that was really helpful. Mr. Will also helped us a little bit with how to take a good video about the angles, the light and all those other things. Ms. Ashley helped us with the video a bit because in one of the scenes she had to give a little speech on what we did wrong, what is arrow, what were going to have to do and etc. Fah helped us with some of the scens because when we were all in th scene we only had the tri-pod to stay in one place to zoom in or zooming out so Fah helped us complete some of that.

  • Things that have caused you difficulty (if any)
  • Well sometimes we would have an argument on this and that but those problemes were solved pretty easily. First we were suppose to have someone came and video us but the Mr. Will said it has to be our work so we quit that idea and didnt know who could video us because everyone would be busy doing there exhibition. Soon we found out that Fah was free because she finished most of her exhibition so we got her to video us. Another difficulty was that when we were just about to start filming someone would walk by and be really noisy so we would have to start over again and again. Some people came out and purposelly try making load noieses so we couldnt take the video.

  • What your plans are for the next few days – show a timeline of how you expect to get the job done
  • For our group we are planning to finish videoing everything so Georgina can put it all together and do the editing. Tomorow if there is school we are planning to bring our pajamas to shoot one scene in a sleepover in the staff room. We are also going to put the video on a CD so it will look like a professional video.

  • Any problems or issues you need help with.
  • I dont think we need any help because we are just

    The progress you have made in developing your presentation

    The progress my group and I have made are at first are that we are really trying to get the message across. We added a lot more to our play script since we didn’t have that much written on. We were trying our best to act really realistic because we are trying to make it look really real life and this can happen to anybody. We tried to ask people if we should do other things or some advises. We have also made a complete story board that is edited.

    What you have achieved so far

    So far in our exhibition worked we have achieved our information gathering and we have completed a whole complicated script, on the script they are all the scenes, act’s,CUT’s and the camera viewing. We have also achieved a story board and it was really hard to make. We have had many interviews and meetings with a lot of people. We also did lot’s of surveys for the year sixes and the year sevens. We surveyed 105 people by mouth.

    Who helped you and how (if anyone)

    Mr.Chris helped us by advising us a lot of things like he told us that our movie has to be realistic and also he teached us how to put cameras in the right position Mr.Chris also helped us by being in the video. Fah helped us too by filming some parts of the movie for us we really appreciate that. Nearly everybody in the class helped us because they are kind of participating in the movie for us. Ms. Ashley helped us by participating in the movie and when we were the filming that part she was really teaching us about cyber bullying. Georgina also helped us because she was the new member in our group so she will edit the video for us.

    Things that have caused you difficulty (if any)

    The difficulties are that it was harm to really concentrate and all cooperate to gether as a team it was really hard when different people had different ideas and start fighting. It was really hard to interview 105 people it was really tough and a lot of work, some people just ignored us when we were doing the surveys and it was really annoying for us. The most hardest thing was to make the storyboard and the script because we had to put a lot of writing in lie the talking of different character, the act’s, the scenes, all the cuts and where the camera is viewing.

    What your plans are for the next few days – show a timeline of how you expect to get the job done

    1. 23rd April My group and I will finish of the video
    2. 25th April My group and Give the video to Georgina for her to edit

    April 22, 2010

    The progress in my presentation is going really well as we already started sticking the economy, nature, society and well-being things on but we need more pictures. The inside is going to much harder and it will take us lots of time so we also have to start managing our time well.

    We have achieved sticking what we are going to talk about and the road scene. We will now start putting the other things like some trees, pollution and the other things we were supposed to put.

    Ms. Dawn and Mr. Chris have helped us already. The ideas given by Ms. Dawn are really good but they are extremely hard to work on. So our group is thinking of considering only some of the ideas.

    The things that have caused us difficulty are that first we weren’t able to decide that do we want to make it 2D or 3D. Then our group argued a lot on small things. Sometimes the whole group went to check a room or for card boards. Our group shouldn’t have done that but only 2 people should have gone.

    My plans for the next few days is to finish the second box. If we will have more time then we will make something like a video, prezi or something.

    My group needs help with the second box as we are going to start that soon. But I think my group can sort that out ourselves.

    Today my presentation went half way. My information presented by a game show .  IM am just finishing all the questions and practicing it anc checking if it is correct.

    I have learned a lot about waste disposal from the interview my group did and we planned everything.

    Mr. Chris helped my group because he gave us some ideas and some tips for presenting the work. The person from the BMA helped us a lot but she couldn’t answer all the questions because she isn’t the boss.

    I plan to do the work one at a time.  friday: Presentation done.   Monday:  All the things like signs started. Tuesday: Signs done and practicing scripts.

    I am not sure where we should present and should we make an advertisement.

    What you have achieved so far?

    So far, I have achieved in tying my best and putting all my hard work to complete this exhibition successfully. My plans were a success and we have done a great job.

    Who was helped you and how (if anyone)

    So far, Mari’s mom, Ms. Kate and Mr. Adrian have helped us a lot by giving us information and told us examples of different things that are related to our topic such as their experiences of when they’ve seen poverty and how they helped the poor people.

    Things that have caused you difficulty (if any)

    The only thing that has caused me difficulty is that being on time for appointments made because at the same time we need to handle completing other tasks for our exhibition. Over all we used our time pretty well.

    What your plans are for the next few days – show a timeline of how you expect to get the job done

    Today, I have finished my little video about what is happening because of Poverty. (The Facts I call it) And today, I also started my power point presentation with full page picture and some headings on. I did my power point presentation and finished it until the cause of Poverty part. I tried to keep it a minimum of words and only key points so like as Mr. Will said before, 80% of the presentation would be the presenter, and the 20% of the presentation would be the presentation its self.

    Today, my mom came to visit and talk to us about the issue Poverty and Child Education. I learnt many things that my mom would not talk to me about, at home. But, I had some stuff that I knew because I talked with my mom a little at home.  I learnt from my mom that there are many faces of poverty. I learnt that there are Absolute Poverty  which is when people have no food, no water, no shelter and clothes and live with less than a dollar a day, and some thing called Relative Poverty which they have a minimum amount of food, water, clothes, a small roof over their head and they can live if they try their best to live.  I learnt that Poverty doesn’t always mean that they have no money but that it means hunger, that they have no freedom, no job, no education, they cannot read, write or do simple calculation like 1 add 1 and 1 add 2.       I had several  questions for my mom to think about and one of them was ”Why are women and girls in some country taken away the right to be educated?” My mom said that it was because many of their parents thought women and girls were just for giving birth, do the house work, and just make the generation go on forever. So, parents thought girls weren’t needed to be educated. But, today, I found out that it is not always girls that are taken away the rights to be educated. I found out that in some country like Mongolia, people there go around with camels and live all over place. But people there do not won’t some thing to happen to girls so they just send them to bording schools and boys, when they think their son is enough educated, they take them out of school and make them help the father take care of the horses and the camels and help the father to set up the tent. I was surprised by the information that in Thailand, many boys drop out of school when they are about in secondary level and most girls go up till university. But the one who gets richer and gets a good job is the men and boys. I thought that was quite unfair that boys say they don’t want to learn and drop out and the girls learn very hard but they cannot have good jobs in their future and boys do.

    The things that I found that was difficult for me (Some difficulties I had) was finding good pictures that really really relates to the issue Poverty and Child Education. It was one kind of difficulty for me because flickr, flickr storm, photo bucket, they all have good quality pictures that would not be pixolated than google images, but in those three web sites flickr, flickr storm and photo bucket, they all had pictures that was not real life pictures (like the actors are doing it) and many pictures that weren’t relating at all to the issue poverty and Child Education.

    I expect my job to be done like this:

    • April 23rd Friday- Finish up the power point presentation
    • April 26th Monday- Do some editing of presentation and Start thinking about what I am going to say
    • April 27th Tuesday- Start writing the Script, Q-Cards, notes on power point
    • April 28th Wednesday- Finish up and edit the script, q-cards, notes.
    • April 29th Thursday- Start practicing the presentation by my own and get it quite all of it in my head
    • April 30th Friday- Start practicing to other students who are also finish in my class and get some comments, improve it and still keep on practicing until the very end of the period
    • May 1st Saturday- Practice one last time of presentation and get perfectly ready for the presentation day May 3rd Monday in Student Led confrences
