Exhibition Responses :) :)

May 10, 2010

What did you feel went really well for you during your Exhibition?

I felt that my group was cooperative and we worked together as a team. We completed a full movie that explain nearly everythig about cyber bully no matter that sometime we had arguments or some IT teachnology problem, we could still coped with it.  I thought that my presentation skill while presenting had improved. The audience filled in the survey sheet that we gave out and most of them thought that we were clear, simple and to the point. Most of them have gotten the message that we tried to give.

 

What difficulties did you have and how did you deal with them?

The diffficulties in exhibition were that sometimes we had fights or disagreement about one thing and another. But we tried to solve the problem positively in the fair way.Some difficulty were about the techonlogy that was hard for us. Because we had to edit the movie that we filmed. Sometime people in our group were shy to present so we had to convince them to present in the positive way.

What have you learned about yourself?

I have lernt that I should never be lazy to do work because everybody thinks we had a lot of time to finish work but actually if ou look it in another perspective it was a really short reasonable among of time.  I shoud always plan ahead of my schedule because we never know if something is going to be wrong or broken. I also learnt that when you take a video and you wanted to edit and put it together you always have to count to three before the actors get in the scene or leave the scene.

What ‘big ideas did you take away from the Exhibition?

The big ideas I took from exhibition were I should never cyber bullyto  anyone and should warn people when their about to make the wrong choices online because CYBER BULLYING HURTS that is our main idea. I think I shouldn’t make my own choices online because I could not know I am in a big danger soI always should get advice from adults from clicking pop up like YOU WON A MILLION DOLLARS.

 

How will you continue to move forward with your learning – what will you do to live with the future in mind?

I would want my life to move on saftly and happily . I want a happy society for people around me and  a happy society for the whole world. If we stop cyber bullying forever worldwide , we might have a happy and peacful society. So I should not cyber bullying to anyone and pass a message around to the whole world. At least I shouldn’t do cyber bullying because one could make a difference.

 

What have you learned about group work?

I have learnt that working with my group can be really easy if we cooperate because teamwork leads to success and many people can share works to do at a time for as if you work alone you can make your own choices but it will be a tougher work for you to do because at first I thought that working in a group would be really hard thing to do but actully if you cooperate and make team work it isn’t hard as hard as you think.

Fah-Law and Order

🙂 Star#1: I thought that Fah did a really great job she spoke really confidently and clearly if I was in a group alone I would be a bit shy so a really great job on being great and confident. She had a script book in her hand and it tell her what to say with the sides on it I thought that was a great idea.

🙂 Star#2: I also thought that was really clear,simple and to the point, her powerpiont was really good. WHen she was explaining the powerpoint she explained many small details about Law and Order.

😦 WISH: I wish that the powerpoint could be a little bit more eye-catching because her powerpoint was kind of plain maybe she could put more pictures in or more things. I also wish that her powerpoint presentation could be a little bit more shorter.

Ann, Maya, Meridith, Tulsi, Yuri and Namsai-Slavery and Freedom

🙂 Star#1: I really liked the way they presented it was a great ideda and they were confident when they were acting I thought that the acting that they presented was high quality and really great. They knew their lines really well and didn’t forget any lines. The acting was really fun to watch.

🙂 Star#2: Their voices was loud and clear I bet that everyone in the thearter could hear them. They got to the point I really understand their message.

😦 WISH: I wish that they could speak more louder at the end because they spoke softer at the end.

Sujina and Sasha- Water

🙂 Star#1: I thought that their art works are really creative and the effort they put in their artwork was a lot. It was a great idea about the real rubbish in the painting.

🙂 Star#2: I thought that people after seeing the artwork and know they shouldn’t pollute they will make a change.

😦 WISH: I wish that they could have more things because they just have two things the artwork and a little paper that tells you ten ways to save water.

Exhibiton ***Progress***

April 22, 2010

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
  3. 26th April Practise about the Powerpoint
  4. 30th April Official Practise

 

Any problems or issues you need help with

We are doing on well we don’t really need anymore help.

The most important 5 things you have found out through your inquiry

  1. The most important thing that we have found out is how People Cyber Bully other people and how it affects the person who gets bullied because it is a very big issue right now when they are new technologies.

       2.   Secondly is how does the Bullier feel when they bully people/What is their perspectives about what they are doing.

        3.    How does the person who gets bullied feel and what is their perspectives.

         4.    How to raise awareness for Cyber Bullying so people can stop it and see how serious it is.

         5.     We have to cooperate very well to make a good presentation

The most important thing you would like people who visit your Exhibition presentation, to come away understanding.

The most important message my group and I want to give out is that we really want cyber bullying to stop so we are trying to raise awareness for people to realize and know that how serious cyber bullying others can be. We are doing that by showing the people videos and show the message out.

What is your presentation going to be – what it will be/look like/be presented

My group and i decided that the presentation that we will give out will be a movie and a little Powerpoint to explain. We choose that because we thought that it will be a useful way to present our ideas and learning to others. In the movie there will be three really popular girls and two new students in the same class as them. The three girls bullied the two new students a lot so one of the new students thought of an idea that she should get into the gang because if she does she wont get bullied anymore. But the other new student doesn’t agree so she stays alone. The four girls now start to really cyber bully her by posting mean photos of her pretending to be her friend and get all her information and post it on the blog. They want to hurt her feelings untill she can’t stand it she e-mailed her teacher to tell on them. After that the teacher send the four girls to arrow and one of those girls in the group came in to talk to her in private and came crying she felt really sorry we promised that she won’t bully anymore and at the end they became best friends. We were thinking that it can be presented at the theater.

What resources you will need to develop your presentation – make a list

  • My group
  • Other teachers
  • Computer to edit the movie
  • Mr. Chris

 

Who can help you with your presentation – is there an expert or Compass Guide who can help you

I think that maybe Mr.Chris andMr.Will can help and advise us for where we have to cut and parts that have to be edited on the computer.

What your plans are for starting/continuing your presentation

Our plans for the next weeks are to film the movie and put it together.

Exhibition *8

April 8, 2010

What I achieved today: 

Today at unit time me and my group talked to Mr. Chris and he gave us a lot of ideas about the movie we are going to make. Today in unit time Georgina came to our class and asked us if she could present the presentation with us and now she is in our group this is going to be good! 

   

What did I learn today? 

Today I learned a lot from Mr. Chris there was loads of things I learned one of them was when we make a movie we have to make realistic. 

   

List several sources? 

  • Mr.Chris
  • My group
  • Websites
  • You Tube

How did I find them? 

Some of the links of the websites Georgina and Mr. Will send me loads of links about my topic there were many great and good website. I also talked quite a lot with Mr.Chris 

   

In what ways did they change what I was thinking or what I knew about the topic? 

At first I thought that people who gets bullied will not really tell anyone they get bullied because the most common is that they are shy and scared that people will think that they will not stand up for themselves. 

   

Plans for the next few days: 

The plans for the next few days are to tell Georgina about the movie and get her in the gang……..

Exhibition *7

April 5, 2010

Exhibition

What I achieved today:

Today in unit time in class, my group and I completed a plan for the video we are going to make for cyber bullying. We were mostly concentrating on cyber bullying but sometime when we are in the plan for the video we got mixed up with internet safety. We talked together as a group of what thing we are going to have in a video and we achieved the planning step in the video.

 

What did I learn today?

Today I learned that you can get arrested when you cyber bully someone really badly and it can cause a really really big problem.  I also learned that when we go on the internet we can check in the history section to find out the website we have been into and that is one way you can see if they are any bully situation.

List several sources?

  • My group
  • You Tube video

 

How did I find them?

I was communicating with my group and we were discussing about many things about cyber bullying. And we went on You Tube and saw many videos that help us a lot on our topic.

In what ways did they change what I was thinking or what I knew about the topic?

At first I thought that the bullier gets caught by bulling someone only when a friend of theirs tell the teacher but now you can check on history who did what and when. Now people can get caught in many different ways.

Plans for the next few days:

My group and me will make a script for the video that we are going to make next week.

What I achieved today:

Today I filled in the sheet of paper which said the each compass lens we had to brain storm everyone in my group did that. We finished off making the graphs that showed the survey we asked others and it was successful.

 

What I learnt today: 

Today I learn many different things from my group about the different point of the compass lens, when I was brain storming with my group my group gave me a lot of ideas about the different information of the different sides of the compass lens.

 

List several sources?

  • My group
  • Mr. Chris

 

How did I find them?

My group and I were brainstorming together about different points and we gave each others a lot of ideas of how much one topic can fit in many points of view. Mr. Chris came and talk to us, he gave us some ideas of what should we do.

 

In what ways did they change what I was thinking or what I knew about the topic?

At first I thought that the cyber bullying topic can only go into the lens Society and well-being because those are the main points but then I found out a lot of information from my group more about economy and nature. They were loads of things that connected to each other on the compass. I like the compass it gives us many ways to look at one topic.

 

Plans for the next few days:

Look at more videos on you tube or cybersmart.com

What I achieved today:

Today at school when we were doing unit my group interview 105 people but I and Lily wasn’t here so we couldn’t do it. We went to see two people, Heather and Zoey they were from the UK and they talk to us a bit about cyber bullying and internet safety. Today we started to make a timetable for the week of what we are going to do. On some day’s Erika and Kira are not going to be here so Lily and I will take over the job.

What I learnt today:

Today I learnt that when somebody you don’t know cyber bullies you they are a person online wearing a mask on their face. I also learnt that there are two kinds of bullying when you really take the bully really seriously and another is when you think it’s a joke. Most people from the survey didn’t feel guilty after they hade bullied someone online.

List several sources?

  • Books
  • Community people
  • Mr. Chris
  • Survey

 

How did I find them?

My group and I went out to survey people in year 7 and year6 and we completed the task. Today in unit Mr. Chris came to talk to us and he told us a lot of information.

In what ways did they change what I was thinking or what I knew about the topic?

At first I thought that people when they bully someone they will always think guilty about then selves but some people we surveyed did not so it changed my thinking that not everyone will think that there are wrong.

Plans for the next few days:

There are many things we planned for the next few days we already made a timetable for it.

Exhibition

What did I achieve today?

Today in class my group went down to interview and ask some of the year 7 students in NIST it was tiring because some students didn’t answer. We had to miss some unit time in class. We interview about 60 people already at first we only decided to do the year 7 but some didn’t answer because some didn’t answer so we just decided to do the year 6 too.

What are some new things I learned today?

Today in unit time I learned a lot from Mr. Adrian Watts because at first that I just thought that economy was just all about money but I was wrong actually it is sharing human resources in an economic way like sharing resources to other countries.

List several sources?

  • Year 7 students
  • Year 6 students
  • Surveys
  • Brain
  • Books

 

How did I find them?

At first My group and I was thinking of questions to ask the year sevens and we used the question sorter as our helping tool after that we went to survey people. Today Fah went to the library to get books and she got one book for our group about cyber bullying and I read a bit of it, it was great.

In what ways did they change what I was thinking or what I knew about the topic?

Sometimes people’s answers when I went to survey people it was kind of different of what I was thinking most people bully each other online because they thinks it’s fun and people like to bully. Some people get bullied online because maybe sometimes they’re a new student of they can’t speak English.

What are some new questions I have now about what you learned today?

  1. Is it really possible to have a law against cyber bullying?
  2. Do most people get cyber bullied by the people they no or the people they don’t know?
  3. What actually does cyber bulling mean?

 

What is my plan for the next few days?

Our plans for the next few days are try to get some more surveys for other. Getting ready for the video that we are going to make. After the Song Karn holidays.
