Top Projects:

  • Middle Ages Castle Build
    • I chose this project because it was the project with the most amount of cooperation. We have gotten a lot of progress done and have not had many design flaws. This is one of the projects I have worked best as a group. It was also a fun project to work on and wasnt to hard. This project was the best project because it was fun, and I worked better on it that any other project.
  • How to Survive the Night (Minecraft)
    • I chose this as my second project because one, it was fun to work on and also pretty easy. Although, I did get really distracted and that is why this is my second project. I learned my lesson about being extremely distracted and not working with the people I did again. We also did not finish it in result of being distracted, but were pretty close. That is why this is my second project.
  • Terraria Project
    • I chose this project for one my top projects because for a couple of reasons. One is that this is probably the project we have learned most from because we had never played the game before and we did not do that much research on it. Another reason is that Jack and I did not mess around during the project or do anything we were not supposed to do. Also, we built everything quickly and with quality; including our house, our mine, and our statue garden. Those are some reasons why this is one of my top projects.
  • Shane, Ben, and Gabe's learning guitar project
    • I chose this project because it was something new that I had not done before. Also it would be a good learning experience for me because I had never actually learned how to play guitar or never have even tried to learn or play it. It would also be a good project for me because it would also teach us all of the cords to the guitar and also the notes to it too. Also, it would teach me how to read music and work with other people in the group to play the guitar. That is why I chose to do this project as one of my top projects.
  • Jack T and Gabe A Clash Of Clans Proposal
    • I chose this project as one of my top projects for a couple of reasons. One is that it was one of our more successful projects and we got a lot done in it. Also, this project lasted for a long time and over that period of time it gave us more time to do our work. Another reason is that it was a good project experience because before this project I have not done a similar one like it with the same kind of goal. Those are some reasons why I picked this project as one of my top projects.
  • Basketball Fundamentals I
    • I chose this project as one of my top projects for a couple reasons. One reason was that it was more of a sport project which is something we haven't really done before in the past. Also, it is more of an active project which is good so we can be active and moving around for our project. We also have more of two parts to our project, filming and playing basketball, so it is good that we have two skills to work on at the same time. We also have been keeping up with our project and having good progress with it. This is because we have been posting videos regularly and getting a lot of work done. That is why I picked this project as one of my top projects.

Top Reflections:

  • "We learned that it is easy to get distracted while playing minecraft with your friends. We can fix that by telling each other to stay on task. It will also slow us down by playing instead of working. We can disable cheats so that we don't distract ourselves. We will try hard to get more things done on Tuesday.
    • I think that this should be one of my top reflections for a couple of reasons. First is that it was a good learning experience for working with others not just with minecraft, but any other project too. Another reason is that we had to start to not goof around as much as we did before. That is why that reflection is one of the top reflections.
  • "Today we continued on our world and we are getting more focused on our project than we were before we started. Ever since we figured out screen cast, we have been a bit better than before. We also are almost done with our screen cast's and are going to upload them to youtube."
    • I think that this is one of my top reflections for a couple of reasons. First is that I was getting more focused with my group and was making good progress on our project. Also is that we figured out how to use screencast so that we could record our project easier. That is why this reflection should be in my top reflections.
  • This week we made a lot of progress and we got 4 NPC's in our house. We also defeated one boss and we have expanded our house quite a bit so that we can get even more NPC's in our house to sell us more useful tools.
    • I think that this is one of my top reflections because of a couple of reasons. One is that as it says in the proposal, we had been very successful and made a lot of progress. Another reason is that when we wrote this reflection, we had expanded our house a ton, which meant that we could have more storage and NPC's. Also, we had defeated a pretty hard boss, which meant that we got many resources like coins, silver and gold. That is why I think this should be one of my top reflections.
  • I / We want to learn... We want to learn a good and efficient way to tune our guitars and make sure they are in a good working condition. We also want to start learning the basic cords and start to play some whole note short songs to start off our guitar experience. We will do this once we are done tuning our guitars and make sure they are working.
    • I think that this should be one of my top reflections because it clearly describes what our problems are that we are facing in the project. It also lists what we want to learn and get better at like working on the cords. Also, it shows what we want to learn in detail and it is a good length for it too. It also shows what we want to start to do and why we want to do it. That is why I think that this should be my top reflection.
  • I/we will know we have succeeded when ...
    We will know when we have succeeded when we have mastered the song wish you were here. Also, we will have recorded our progress for the song wiether we were good at it or not. We will also have done a couple more recordings before we are done with the song. We plan to know the fingering and also the correct strumming. We also want to try to play the song combined with Shanes solo and Ben and I's rythme.
    • I chose this reflection as one of my top reflections for a couple of reasons. One is that it explains what we are going to do in our project and how we will do it. Also, it shows the amount of recordings we have done and how they went. It also shows what we need to improve on and how we will improve on it. Also, it shows how we will play the song for our final recording. That is why I picked this reflection for one of our top reflections.
  • I / We want to know...
    We want to know some good soccer channels to look at with good videos. We want the videos to be some thing we are able to learn not something that has skills that are to hard to learn. We want someone that also has a verity of skills to learn not just one specific one. We also want to have more than one good and reliable youtube channel to look at to get ideas.
    • I picked this reflection as one of my top reflections for a few reasons. One reason is because it shows good detail on the types of videos were are looking for. It is also a reasonable length for a reflection so it is not to long or short. Another reason is that it is a good description because it is showing a good idea of the things we are looking for in our project. That is why I picked this reflection as one of my top reflections.
  • "I/we will know we have succeeded when ...
    We will know we have succeeded when we get to learn our skills that we have looked up and get them down so that we can do them almost flawlessly. We will have also have many videos of our skills that we have learned and looked for that we post on our project page. Also, we will have gotten all of the videos that we have taken off of our recording device and onto the computer and get them then onto the project page."
    • I chose this reflection as one of my top reflections for a couple reasons. One reason is that I had a good description of what we had done that week. We also showed good effort that week in our reflection when we did our work. Also, I had put in a lot of detail into my reflection and it is easy to understand. Lastly, I had shown that me and Shane got everything done. That is why I chose this reflection as one of my top reflections.
Top Critiques
  • I think that you should have a goal that you can reach and you never really said how much time the project will take and when you will finish.
    • I think that this should be one of my two top critques. One is that this is one of my critiques that I have had the most thigs I have listed for Riley to fix. That is why I think that this should be one of my top critiques.
  • I think you should keep track of what you do in your project more on your wiki page. Also, are you done with your project? You should think about how much time you are putting in to make the dragon because it seems it will take a very long time.
    • I think that this is one of my other top critiques because of a couple of reasons. One is that this is my most detailed critiques I have done. Another reason is that I had had the most amount of critique suggestions in one critique.
  • I think that overall it is a good project and that you could learn a lot. Althought, I think that you should have a better projection of the time line of your project and how long it will take. Also, does your project take up the in tire class time and what do you usually have to upload? I also would want to know if you would rather post your reflection of what you made on the wiki or make an actual blog about it.
    • I chose this critique comment as one of my top comments for a few reasons. One is that I give a good projection of what they should fix. Also, it gives times for them to do what they need to do in class. It also gives specific questions about their project and what they might need to fix. That is why I think that this should be one of my top critique comments.
  • I think that the new skills idea is a good addition to your project. Although, how long are you planning ton doing this project. Also, how long does it usually take to make your foods and how many do you make in a week.
    • I chose this critique comment as one of my top critiques for a few reasons. One reason is that it asks an important question which is what the project length is which is very important to a persons project and plan for it. Another reason is that I asked important questions about the food in the project which was about how long it usually takes which is very important because you would need to plan out when you are making certain foods and how long they might take to make. Also, it is a good length for a critique which would be a couple complete sentences with a couple questions in them. That is why I picked this critique comment as one of my top critiques.
  • "I like how you have a lot of options for ideas on what to do in your project, but I do have a couple questions. What is the main point of the project and what are you trying to learn? Also, I feel like your group is not really cooperating and your wiki is not exactly complete as well. Just try to work together as a group more and get some more information on your wiki."
    • I chose this as one of my top projects for a couple reasons. One is that I gave a lot of detail for what they (Jacob) can fix in is project based on my critique. I also asked an important question which was "What is the main point of the project and what are you trying to learn?" This was a good question because it would help him think about a certain topic he can base his project on. I also gave him advice on his group performance on the project and how he can fix that too. That is why I chose this as one of my top critiques.
