Exhibition 2 by Aditya

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.

My goal was to clean up my things after i have played with them or used them and not depend on my maid to keep them. Everyday after i play with my things i always keep them back from where i got it from. If i take out my homework folder then when i am done with it i always keep whatever i took out from it and  keep the folder back into my school bag.  Sometimes when i get a lot of things out it kind of hard to remember where i got it from but know a days i always remember where i take my things out from and when i am done with it then i keep it back!  I still need to remember where i get my things from because sometimes i forget and put my things back in the wrong place and the next time i want to play with them i wont be able to find it. I think at the end of this unit my things and toys will always be in the right place and that will help me sustain my goal!

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.

I’ve got a maid who will do everything for me…I don’t need to be organized!

I don’t agree with this because your maid won’t be with you for your whole life and when u get older you get more responsibility.
You can’t learn to be organized – you’re born that way.

I disagree because when your a baby your not organized and u have no responsibility. But you still can learn to be organized as you grow up.

My Basket used to be organised. I had kept all the sheets in the correct folders and all the folders were all neat. If the paper was big I would fold it properly and put it neatly in the correct the folder.The tools I used to help me was the basket and the folders. It was very successfull and it looked very tidy. But after about 4 days it started to get messy because I started to get more papers so then I didn’t want to keep puttting more paper in. Well so thats why my basket is messy.

I’ve got a maid who will do everything for me…I don’t need to be organized!
I disagree at times because sometimes your not with your maid so she isnt there to do all your stuff for you. Also when you grow up your not really supposed to have a maid to do all your things because around that age your supposed to be responsible for your own property. Even though you have a maid you should try not to let her do all your things so you can grow up being responsibily mature.

We don’t need to be organized

I dont really agree with that because if we need to find our things and our room is not organized there isnt much chance of finding what you need. Some people will disagree with that because they can find there things through a mess but I’d rather be organized. When we be organized there is a lot of positves then negatives because you probaly wont be ashamed of your selves. I partly agree with this line because if we are going somewhere for a short amount of time and we dont need anything we dont really need to be organized.

Provocations!

You Do Not Need To Be Organized…

I strongly disagree with this provocation because when a person’s space and mind is not organized, they cannot think clearly and miss out on many opportunities. On the other hand being organized allows one to think clearly, be more responsible and work more efficiently. Being organized means having discipline which helps an individual to achieve greater things in life.

I’ve got a maid who will do everything for me…I don’t need to be organized!

This statement sounds like the words of a very spoilt brat! Some of us are lucky that we have such good lives and maids who make our work much easier. However, being organized is a quality that every individual should have because it teaches us to be more independant. Today, we may have maids, but as the world keeps changing, we may not have them tomorrow. Therefore, we should learn to be organized and independant so we can control our own lives.
