CJE3's Portfolio

Top Projects:

  • TKH2 CJE3 Minecraft
    • Tanner and I have stayed with this project for the majority of the year, and we have gotten very far with it. This quarter we started making youtube videos of our progress. The videos are on screenshots from our world. Tanner and I have finally made the stands in the stadium, and they are doing really well. We've added locker rooms and a walkway to the field. We've learned a lot about making things very detailed when you are building. Everything in the stadium is the exact way we want it. Overall, This project has shown us a lot, and we have had a lot of fun doing it.
  • TKH2 CJE3 Minecraft
    • Tanner and I are getting into the groove of this project, but it will probably last until the end of the year. We are now at the point where we will start making the stands, and the main part of the stadium, which will be extremely challenging. I feel that I have learned a lot more about minecraft through the past weeks, than I had known before the project. Tanner and I have learned to be more productive every class, and get more done. I feel good about the position that we are at in this project, and it is much better than I thought it would. This project is very different from the other project I did this year, and I have enjoyed this project much more.
  • TKH2 CJE3 Minecraft
    • I am just at the beginning of this project. Our goal is to make a replica of the Real Madrid soccer stadium. Right now we have only finished the field and we are working very fast. We ran into some problems with the dimensions of the lines on the field, but we were able to get past that by tweaking a couple of things. What I really enjoy about this project is that we are taking a game that isn't realistic, and trying to make something from real life, and it is very possible. We will have to focus on smaller parts of the stadium before we go big. The rest of this project will be very difficult, but I think we will be able to do it.
  • Lego Logos
    • I did this project with Tanner. We made three logos of companies and sports teams out of Legos. We ran into various different small problems, one of which was we didn't have the right colored bricks, or placing the pieces in the right spot didn't fit the way we wanted it to. We got past these problems by changing the colored brick to a different color that was similar but would still work, and we found different bricks that we could put together to make the logo look the way it should. I really liked doing this project because we were using Legos, and Legos used to be my favorite toy as a younger kid. This was a great project for me to have as my first project in Thinkering because it showed me how fun this class really is.

Top Reflections:

  • This week we had “hard fun” when we
    Made our first iMovie. It took longer than we thought it was going to take. We did not have any time to play Minecraft on Thursday. We were able to upload our video of screenshots on Youtube, which I didn't think we were going to get to. Overall, we got a lot done.
    • I chose this reflection because it was about something we don't normally do on a regular week. That week we made our first iMovie and uploaded it to Youtube. This reflection shows the great things we did, and things we were able to, when we didn't think we were able to. I feel really good about this reflection since it kind of changed the rest of the way we did our project.
  • One example of a FAILure we had was ...
    Not noticing we had to put the outer turf around the field before we could make benches. We couldn't put the benches on the field then it wouldn't be like the actual stadium. I felt good about getting our project page going and get our screenshot on the page too. next class we will be able to add the benches for real.
    • I chose this reflection because it showed a problem we had to solve. I felt that we had done something wrong, and we took the extra time to find it, and make it right. I think it as good that we had a reflection about failure because that helps show that this project is challenging. This reflection showed exactly what was wrong, and how to fix it.
  • This week I/we had a breakthrough when ...
    We found a good project to do and made a proposal so we will be good to go when we get back from break. We had the right mentallity to get stuff done.
    • I chose this reflection because because it showed how I felt and how we did that week. That week we didn't do much, but it was the start of our new project. It was a nice way to end right before our long break. This reflection really showed our breakthrough which made me feel like I had momentum for the project.This reflection shows the feel of our work we did that week.
  • "This week I/we took the proper time for the job when ...we worked well the whole time. We got the logos up on the wiki fast and easily because we didn't waste time do get them up on the wiki."
    • I chose this reflection because this was my best reflection of the year. I think this is the best reflection I have had because I put the most work into it. I think this reflection was from the week that I think I got the most done. Because of that, I was able to produce a good reflection. This reflection shows the work I put in to my project that week.

Top Critiques:

  • Since you have found a lot of commands, I think you should try to find a way to combine them in a way and try to start a bunch things and make something really cool.
    • I chose this critique because it is suggesting something cool to add to a project. It includes all the things a critique should. This critique doesn't say much, but there are so many ways to respond to it. This critique may have sprouted ideas for the person who received it, and they could make something really cool on their project doing this.
  • I really like what you have done on minecraft but I think you should make a wiki page and put your goals on it.
    • I chose this critique because it helped show an important thing that the person needed to add. Even though this critique doesn't have much, I chose it for what was in it. This was not an extremely unique critique, but it gave the extra motivation, to put some thing on their page. I thought this was a kind critique because it was just a suggestion.
  • "I think u could try to make the marshmallow pops again to see if you could change something and see what happens."
    • I chose this critique because I think this could motivate someone to do this. I think this critique was a kind critique. I think this was a unique critique because I don't think many people would think someone should do something they have already done, over again. I haven't had much work with critiques so I don't know haw great this is but I think it is a pretty good start.
