Exhibition Reflection

May 10, 2010

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

Our group cooperatide really well so we completed a full movie and a powerpoint to show most of our important information we found out.  When we were putting the movie together there were IT problems and some arguments about some of the ideas but we just moved on. I also really feel good for the fact that I have improved on speaking in front of a big audience. Usually I would have mixed up my words but with my group there with me and I was proud of what we had done I improved on speaking in a big audience. I also was really proud of our video because we had done it in a short time and it wasnt all boring facts being said.

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

Well our group’s difficulties were that we had arguments on some desisions. Like when we wanted to do the behind the scenes jumping we argued about should we do it together or one by one. The arguments we had were little so mostly after we had a vote or somethingit would be over. Most of us agreed on differnet things and also argued that one or another wasnt doing anywork. Another diifficulty was that on the apple mac computer it kept on cutting some of the bits so people said that that should be our improvemen because it wasnt that professional. Also  

What have you learned about yourself?

I learnt that when there is something needed to be done we have to get ti done not let others do the work do it your self because everyday out there someone is doing that job.  I have also learned that I am interested in problems that are to do with my age from my experience so that I can get how it feels better that thinking what it would fel like to be in that situation. I also learnt that I like to present my work to the audience in the most fasinatimg way so they can get our message across.  In this the most interesting way to get the message across would depend on what the age of the audience is.

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

The big idea I took away from exhibition firstly from my topic was whever you cyberbully it hurts, you have the right to chat to your friends to play games with thm but not to do anything that would hurt their feelings. Everyone has the rights to use electronic devices but they still have the responsibility’s to cope with. The other thing I took away from exhibition is the good presentation style. We made a video and edited by the apple mac computer now I know when I take a scene I need to wait 5 seconds before I start so the speaking wont be cut off. Since we also did a powerpoint we kept in pretty simple but we needed more expression so the audience wont get bored.

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

With what I have learnt I will take it along to my future but I will not make a group to look at everyones conversation because I think that they have the rights to have a private conversation. I will not hurt anyones feeling online I will not talk back in a meen way if they start to bully me online as everyone says one makes a difference. So if I dont cyber bully anyone then there is already a big difference by one.

 What have you learned about group work?

I have learnt a lot in exhibition about group work. The first thing is when you have decided on who you would like to work with dont just choose your friends because if you have a disagreement it can leed to a big fight, but choose someone who has the same subject as you and who you can work well with. Also group work is difficult not everyone gets there way but you just have to cope with that because everyone needs to get theire own way once to make it equal.  If I had worked on my own it would have been more work but I would always get my way but I always thought working in a group could raise your skills except independance.

Exhibition 2 Star 1 Wish

Fah-Law and Order

Star1: She did a very good job presenting on stage all by her self . Fah also had the courage to be in front of all those people with stage frights but did her best. Fah used a booklet for somenotes but she didnt always just look at the paper she also had lots of eye-contact with the aucience.

Star 2: In her presentation her powerpoint was clear, simple, and to the point. Fah’s powerpoint had a style so it was simple, her voice when she spoke was confident, in every slide she would get to the point in detail.

Wish: I wish her powerpoint was a little bit more shorter or in other ways hve more information on one slide, but everything else was good.

Ann Maya Merideth Tulsi Namsai Yuri- Slavery

Star 1: I like the way they presented their work in a  play because it got the message across really quick and it was more intersting. The reason their play was interesting was because even though they included the facts they had found out they also made it fuuny so it could attrack other peoples attention.

Star 2: Instead of using a microphone they spoke with out one but there voice was load and clear. When it was one person’s turn to speak they didnt shout it out at the top of their lungs but load, clear, and with expression.

Wish: At th end one by one they told us some facts those facts were inportant and interesting but i think they should have included it into their play.

  • 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

    Exhibition

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

    1.When you work in a group with a lot of people it is hard to always get your own way.

    2. People usually cyber bully others because they want to do it for fun and dont know how the person who is getting bullied feels.

    3. In cyber bullying we didnt have to research that much because we know most of the things in our hearts

    4.  Gana now has been hooked up to the global network.

    5. When working as a group and cooperating we need to stick on track to get everything done.
    The most important thing you would like people who visit your Exhibition presentation, to come away understanding.

    The message we want to give away to the people who come and watch are cyber Bullying is no fun to the person who gets bullied, its not just that everyone who is hooked on the internet want to bretend to be someone or do something that is not right. So our message that I want to get acroos is ‘Cyber Bullying is not a small matter but a matter to every living being.’

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

    First we are going to do a little ted talk about the information that we found out and then we were going to show the movie. Our movie is about atwo new girls who come in to our school when we get into class the three most popular people start gossiping about them but during snack at the playground one of the girls wanted to be in our group but the other didnt so we told the girl who wanted to be in the group had to take the test. When she comes and takes the test she passes and since she used to be the other girls best friend she told us all about it and we went on Skype to chat with her and bully her. At school the next morning the newest member of our group plans that the 3 popular has to go and bretend to be her friend and get all her updated secrets. When the 3 most popular girl goes there and the other people spot her the 3rd mos popular leaves and we go post all her information on the blog. Soon after the girl found out she told the teacher and the popular f=group got sent to arrow. At the end of the story the 3rd most popular becomes the person who got bullys best friend but in secret.

    For the place we were going to preform our show we were thinking the Theartre because it has a big screen to show the video and microphones so everyone can hear what we have to say.

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

    1.Props so we can make the movie realistic

    2.Computer so we can show the people in the movie what types of Bullying go around on the computer

    3.Mr.Chris and Ms. Ashley to help us with a couple scenes.

    4. A Room so we can shoot Aries’s house twice

    5.Video taker helper so they can video us when we are all in the scene and the same time

    6. High Quality videos because if we show it on big screen then it expands and that way if it is in High Quality it wont be blury.

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

    Well I dont think that we need much help anymore but maybe Mr. Chris will be useful because he has helped us the whole way to make our lives easier. Mr. Will could help us by maybe teaching us a little on how to edit the video to make it professional but Georgina has a programme and we are planing to use that.

    What your plans are for starting/continuing your presentation

    We need Mr. Chris to check our storyboard and script so we can start filming. We have to get everything planned and ready so we know what we are doing. We just need to find some things so that we can get everything ready.

    Child Abuse
    I am interested in child abuse becaus whenever there is a problem I like to dig deeper in to it and find out the little details. If I try to find out the little details for my exibition it could be more clear and I will know a lot about the subject. Things that I am most interested in are animals and peoples problems because they have many perspectives and thoughts about it.

    The visit to Citralada Palace

    March 9, 2010

    Today the whole year 6 went to the Chitralada Palace to see some of the Thai Kings project that helped the people.

    At the first part we all went to see the cows. There was about two or three cows sticking there heads out eating the grass. Some people touch the nose of the cow but i didnt because it has some bugs on it. The interesting thing was that once in a while the cow would swing its head wildely and the grass they were eating would go all over the place. Mr Adrian told we that if the skin is shiny and the eyes sparkle then the cows would be clean. Some of the cows that were sitting down were covered in mud because the floor was muddy.I also saw some cows with numbers writtin on them and I don’t know if that was a good thing or not.

    My favorite factorie was the honey making because I like the steps they had, if I had to be them I would apply for the putting honey in the jar. The other steps were like putting the cap on the bottle checking the barcode and etc. I think the condition they were working in was pretty good because it had air-cone and they all seem to be happy. I also liked the paper making it was really cool when someone made a picture on the board and when it finishes drying it becomes in to paper. I am not really sure how this helped the people but i think it is a fun thing to do.

    Access to equal oppertunities
    I think this phrase matches to the food and drinks factory because they try the best to not use anything that will hurt the environment. This project was made by the king to the people so he must have gaven some things for free. This phrase might have also matched the milk factory because one of the milk is for school and the other milk was for selling in seven eleven for 8 baht.

    Sharing finite resources with people and other living things
    This phrase might have matched the drinks factory because there is very less water in the world and in some drinks there are water. We talked about the reason there is less water but the reasdon that the king is doing all of this is to help people and try to make a better place for them.

    After all this I have a few questions:
    1. About how long did it take to finish a project?
    2. What was his biggest project?

    I really like this field trip and it gave some of us a great experience to know what the king has done for us his people. I thik the guides should have worked a better way to tell us the information at each factory because some of them were noisy and you couldnt hear so people started wondering off. Over all this was a great expierience so they should continue this for a couple more years.

    What a day!!!

    March 3, 2010

    Let the rain pour there is no where to go,
    When the rain is over the sun will beemingly glow.

    Think about trouble in your deepest feelings,
    What do you notice is it the ceiling?

    Call your friend her phone is sleeping,
    but the traffic around you keeps on beeping!

    Look out the window are the waves coming in,
    all a sudden appear a lovely twin.

    The pouring has stop look at the sky,
    isnt it a beautiful day to fly?

    Look at the time now I must go,
    we better finish up with a great clap for the show.

    Kira’s Trip to Bangkok University

    February 9, 2010

    When I heard that we were going to a museum I thought it would be boring because usually at museums you cant touch anything you are only allowed to look.
    At this museum it was more exciting because you could watch things, you could touch some thngs and there even was an excibition there so we could play games.
    My favorite part of the museum was the exsibition on MK and the touching corner. I didnt really enjoy the exsibition of the winner about something because you coulnt really do anything. I could go on touching the objects at the touching corner for ages because I felt really sparkly when I touched them it was differnt from all the other times I touched fragile objects.
    My favorite was the sushi as I said but I didnt really get the message of the four sushis.
