Top Projects:

  • Civilization 5 series
    • For this project, I screencasted 5 episodes and put them on Youtube with a lot of hard editing. I enjoyed doing this project. I used an actuall Microphone instead of Earbuds. I was really happy when I did that. This was because my sound quality was bad with the earbuds. I used iMovie to edit, and Quicktime to record.
    • This was a very interesting project. When I played, I learned about what kind of game it is. I also learned more expert pieces on iMovie, and more about how sound quality is so important on making Youtube videos. When I first started the project, It was mostly learning about the game, trying to get a strategy for it, but when I started getting it, I got to make a plan for an episode and record and edit it, then I posted it to Youtube.
  • Le'Veon Bell highlights
    • I am choosing this project because Le'Veon Bell is the best running back in the NFL, in my opinion. He has the most electrifying highlights to use so I decided to choose him. In this project I am getting the announcers to talk about the play that's happening so that I won't get copyrighted for music. My goal for this project is to make this highlights video around 4-5 minutes long. This can build my skills because I have always wanted to learn more about iMovie, so I get to learn new skills about iMovie while I am doing this.
  • Civilization 5 series
    • I chose this project because it would give me skills if I ever wanted to be a youtube or just do screen casting. This game looks very fun. I wanted to learn a new skill. This is a fun project because it is something I have never done before. My goal is to make a series that can help people but still be entertaining.
  • Basketball Trick Shots
    • This was the last project on the year. This one was my best project through the whole year. It was also the most fun. This project, I could use all of my skills on one last piece of work. This project showed that Fawaz and I learned how to use iMovie better. When we started this project, our goal was to get a 1-2 minute video. The only problem was, we couldn't make the trick shots.

Top Reflections:

  • My/Our next step will be...
    My next step will be to record another video. I was thinking about some stuff and Mr.Whitmer told me to ask Mr. Emmi if he could give me some tips. So he came today and we talked and he asked me some questions about this project. Some weaknesses we noticed is that this may be too long of a game to finish this year.
    • What strengths/weaknesses you noticed
    • What you were thinking
    • I chose to highlight this reflection because it showed that I am a type 2 writer. The bullets above this are the types of theme I put in this reflection. I wanted to do a full series but I may not be able to because it is such a long game. But I may not finish it. I explained very well what I did that week. I told what I was think, also some weaknesses and strengths.
  • "One way I/we showed resourcefulness was ...When I decided to do a different project because when I looked at different highlight videos, it was mostly on one specific person. So I decided to only do Le'veon Bell. I decided to do him because I asked multiple people and the favorite person they told me was him. He has electrifying highlights so it would be easy to find them. Also, he has played for a long time, so he has a lot."
    • I chose to highlight this reflection because it showed how I thought of different ways to get my purpose done. I wanted to do a highlights video of just all around stuff. But now I am doing a highlight video on just one person. I also explained very well what I did that week. I was talking about my new project, I was efficient when trying to find a new project and at the beginning I got a lot of it..
  • My/our achievement was affected by ...

    not being able to find highlights with no music. This has been a problem since I started learning I couldn't use any music. This has been a problem for me since the beginning. Also, sometimes I couldn't find any new plays of him. He also got hurt so their will be no more plays of him this year.
    • I chose to highlight this reflection because it showed how I thought of different ways to get my job done. I had a little trouble but I kept thinking and the announcers were probably the best way to go. I explained very well what I did that week. I was staying on task and making sure it was a type 2 reflection.
  • My/Our next step will be... to end the year on a good note. This year I used so many strategies. I used the strategy of recording on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and sometimes Mondays. For civilization, I kept on recording on Wednesdays and editing on Fridays.
    • This reflection was one of my best because it was my last one of the year. This is when I could use all of my knowledge and all the stuff I learned and use it in one, final reflection. This was a type 2 reflection. I showed all of the strategies i used throughout the year.

Top Critiques:

  • "I think that you should learn more about the game with Ryan, because he is very good at the game. Also, it seems like you guys know what you're future goal is, so good job on that."
    • I chose the one above this because it showed how I wasn't distracted and kept focus on the task at hand. I was unique and was very nice in this critique.
  • "I think that you should explain why you chose the parts you chose and the differences about the other types of parts. Other than that, it was a good project."
    • I chose this one because this one showed how I focused on the project and the person that told it. It shows that I thought of a way to be unique and not chose on that others showed.
  • "I think you should focus on a specific player or team."
    • I chose this one because I really felt like this could help him out. This was unique, and it should help him good.
  • "You should focus on one state for the teams. Not all around the U.S.A."
    • I chose this critique because this one should help Sam a lot. Whenever people make highlight reels, they do one player, or a state of teams. I said that in this critique. This critique showed that I was being unique because it was unlike any of the other people in my groups.
