Exhibition 1

April 6, 2010

Today I learnt that the water boats are a good and quick transport but people don’t use it as it does not match their status and it is really dangerous. I also learnt that even though tuk-tuk is a good transport many people don’t use it as it more expensive than taxis. Only the tourists use the tuk-tuk. I learnt that the traffic problem in Bangkok is also because of shortage of roads. Only 8% of Bangkok is covered with roads compared to 20% in Tokyo.

I also learnt that more people are buying sport-utility cars which require more fuel and cause more pollution. I learnt that the locals who walk wear masks to protect themselves from the pollution. But other people say that the mask is not protective as the harmful gases can go through the mask.

Today I finished my A3 paper’s economy part. I already finished the others. I am researching at home too.

My sources were internet. I think I should use different resources such as books.

My plans for the next few days is to find more information, do 2-3 more interviews and by then I think it will be presenting time so we will start getting ready.

Group Organization Reflection by Tanya

January 18, 2010

How did your group work as a team to discuss and organise how you will allocate people to look at the different resources?

We had a group discussion and split the tasks. We made Alex watched the three videos and take notes because he understands and writes well. Aries went over the links and found useful information, which she printed out. Emma and I read the material and took down the key points.

Did your group do this fairly so you would all finish at around the same time?

Not really ,because we divided the work in a way that when one person finished, the others started their tasks. We should have divided the work more equally and fairly.

Did your group organise how all members of the group would collect the information so that it could be shared with the group. What tools did you use?(if any)

Two team members found the information online, and the other two read it and wrote down key points. Then, we had a group discussion and shared all the information including our own ideas. We used the internet, Microsoft Word, notepads and pencils as tools.

When the entire group had collected their information, did you discuss how you were going to share the information?

We had a group discusstion and everyone gave their ideas.  We shared most of the information by taking turns to read them out loud. Everyone gave their opinion on each point as we went through our research.

How did you come up with your list?

We discussed our points and picked the ones that most team members agreed on. Then we typed up our list on Microsoft Word. Then we edited it and when through it again and made a few improvements together to come up with our final list.

How did your instruction sheet help you to achieve your goal?

The instruction sheet gave us all the links we needed for our research and all the steps needed to achieve our goal.

Do you think that your team worked in an organised manner? Why/Why not?

We were an organized team because we organised our materials well. We should have divided our tasks more fairly. However, we used our time and materials well.

What did this activity help you to understand about organisation?

Being organized helps us to finish our work correctly and on time. We can work more effciently and there is less confustion and more order. We can fulfill our responsibility better when we are organized.

Group Organization Reflection-Rayisht

January 18, 2010

How did your group work as a team to discuss and organise how you will allocate people to look at the different resources.

My group decided that half  the group would would look at half the links and the other half would look at the rest of the links.

Did your group do this fairly so you would all finish at around the same time.

I think the work was even but I had finished quicker because I went through it quickly and the other half went through it slower than me.

Did your group organise how all members of the group would collect the information so that it could be shared with the group. What tools did you use?(if any)

We organized who would do what very easily.My group had  used a sheet of paper to organise this.

When the entire group had collected their information, did you discuss how you were going to share the information?

Well my group didn’t really discuss how we were going to share it we were split into pairs. Then we did our work on Microsoft Word then at the end we just put it to one big Microsoft document.

How did you come up with your list?

When it was one big document one person in the group went through it and just said if it was good,bad or not important. So then we got rid of the bad ones and the one that weren’t important ones.

How did your instruction sheet help you to achieve your goal?

The instruction sheet helped our group by telling us websites to go to.

Do you think that your team worked in an organised manner? Why/Why not?

I think that my group worked in a organized manner because our sheets were in one place not all over the place and we sorted out who was going to do what.

What did this activity help you to understand about organisation

This activity helped me understand that we should be organized to achieve something.
