Top Projects:

  • Code Warriors Gameplay
    • I chose to work on this project because its very good to learn to code and I wanted to find the best way to learn coding while still having fun. In this quarter I had about 2 project Code Warriors and Soccer Trick shots. After I completed a beginners guide to code Warriors I had to cut out the bad clips and make it into a 7 minute gameplay. This was not a very complicated task but it took longer than it needed to. I learned a lot about myself, that I'm not very patient and I am not really on task in this class. I think I learned the most in the code warriors gameplay than every other project considering i understand the basics of coding.
  • Calvin Johnsons Legacy Remix
    • I chose to work on this project because it is a very interesting concept and i have tried a project like this before. My project was to find lots of Calvin Johnson's highlights and input a song and receive views on youtube. I had many challenges along the way, including copyright, and posting to youtube. After posting my video it says my video can be claimed by the NFL. This project has helped me learn a lot on iMovie, i have learned a lot of new techniques along the way. My initial idea for this project was to do best moments in sports but unfortunately i was not able to post the video due to copyright. This was one of my most favorite projects because of the result, and the way it turned out. I personally believe i learned the most in this project because of the different tools i haven't touched before.
  • Project 2 Best Moments in Sports
    • I chose to work on this project because it is a very interesting concept and i haven't done anything like it. My project is to add clips of the best moments of sports in to my own video and add music and post to youtube. One of the main challenges is to not get copyrighted by youtube. I also learned many new tips and tricks while messing around with iMovie. This project helped expand my personal learning network, by asking people for help in my classroom and searching on youtube for tricks. I personally believe this is my most favorite project out of all the projects i have done in thinkering.
  • Project 1 Kerbal Space Program Gameplay
    • Sam and I chose to work on KSP because it was an interesting program and i enjoy playing it. We also incorporated screen plays of the game and spoke into a microphone and thought the viewers more about the game an we also gave our tips and tricks. We also made a jumpstart page for the younger kids. I didn't know anything about the program until i played it with sam and now i have gotten a lot better at it. This project also helps my resource web because you have to ask and look around for help. This project has been a good learning experience.
  • Project 1 Printing on a 3D Printer 1st Quarter
    • Cole and I chose to do this project so we can learn how to use a 3D Printer and a 3D Printer software. And if the first project went well we were going to print cases for iPhone's. Now I choose this project because I didn't know how to use a 3D Printer and now I have been getting really good at using it. This project also lets me work with partners and learn from them. Cole and I worked really well together.
  • Project 1 Printing on a 3D Printer 2nd Quarter
    • Cole and I are working on a 3D printing project. We are learning to print on a 3D printer and how to use a 3D printing software. I have learned that 3D printing isn't as easy as a push of a button. I learned that you have to design your car on a complicated program. Then change it to a certain file and do all sorts of other steps depending on the type of printer. We have been working on this project since the beginning of the year. I think we could have been dohe by now but there's more to 3D printing than you would think. This project has been a good experience.
  • Project 2 GoPro Skiing Remix
    • Cole and I are working on a GoPro Skiing Remix. We are learning how to use our GoPros better and use all sorts of softwares to use to make a remix, such as QuickTime Player and iMovie. I chose this project because I love to ski I'm learning new tricks and i just got a GoPro. I chose Cole to be my partner because he is a really good skier and has a GoPro too. We both don't know how to use the softwares either so it will be a good learning experience. I hope this project turns out well.
  • Project 3 NXT Robot
    • Matt and I are doing a lego NXT Robot project so we can learn how to program and use programming softwares. These legos have a control center which we can decide what it does by programming from the computer. Once the program is in the control center it tells other motors that are hooked up by the cables running from the control center. At first neither of us knew ho to program but no we both do. I personally think my favorite creation was the guitar that played noises when we changed the cords. This project was a good learning experience.

Top Reflections:

  • My Goal for this week was...
    Was to find a new project and make my proposal, and download my project at home on my computer. My project is Rocket league on steam, I need to buy the game and download it before Wednesday and finish my proposal. I am going to make screen recordings of my gameplay and post them on my youtube account. I have ran into a bunch of problems, one being there is always an error when I try to play. I have learned I am getting better at chosing my projects and filling my proposals out with more detail.
    • I chose this reflection because I learned more about myself and how I learn from my mistakes. I also chose this week because this was the week that I chose my new project, to find the best coding website and get a beginners gameplay of it and post it to youtube. I also almost completed my goal of getting 100 views. I also chose this reflection because it had the most detail of what i did and what i accomplished. This reflection reflects my work ethic too, stating that I'm not that patient.
  • My Goal for this week was...
To get about 100 views on one of my videos. I just finished posting of our project and I just started a new project and we are filming it next week. I wish i could've have finished more this class. My project is Insane Soccer Shot with Brenden. We are trying to get our proposal approved and we are about to start filming. I realized i am very impatient while waiting for our proposal to get approved.

  • What helped your learning?
    Youtube helped me get the videos that i can edit and put into my video. Youtube also taught me how to edit my videos to make them different and way more extraordinary. I accomplished a lot on Wednesday and i wish i could have accomplished more on Friday. Next week i am going to be looking for new videos and new techniques to edit the videos i get from Youtube. My video also looks more professional from the editing tips that my peers gave me.

  • "We got the stl file on the mac we have the car completed and we didn't get it printed. We are waiting to get a respond from Mr.Brown. We asked him if we could print it during academic lab. We also learned how to make 3d print on the program, for our license plate. The forums helped us learn how to use the pro version more efficient. The forums also tought us some cool tricks and we learned from other people mistakes, because they would complain on the forums about there train wreck of piece of plastic."
    • I chose this reflection because we accomplished a lot that week. We also found how to get the .stl file on our computer, and we also found some very cool tips and tricks on the forums. We worked very hard on project those few beginning weeks. From using our resources we learned to be more time efficient. This is was a good week for us, and i hope we can make a lot more progress from the resources.
  • We finished our critique group and emailed mr.brown a good time to print our car and finish the 3d Printing Project. We also worked on our jumpstarts and are thinking about other ideas for projects. I think we were working quite well but not as good as possible. Our goal for the project is to print something from a 3d Printer and learn how to use and work a 3D Printer.
    • I chose this reflection because we got a lot done and this is on a daily basis. I also chose this reflection because this was us before Christmas break and achieving lots before a lot school break. In our reflection it shows our goal of this project. Our goal is to print our car onto a 3D printer and learn how to use a 3D printer software and other tools. We were also helping the people that would want to do something like this on the 3D Printing jumpstart page
  • We put all of our videos onto the mac and are going to film over the weekend, cole and I are going to pine knob together to film more and ski. We accomplished a good amount i connected my go pro to the app for a live stream and cole brought his videos in and we found some good ones. I am going to learn a lot from this project. I hope we can accomplish this big project. We also found out that Cole's Dad and Sam L know how to use the Movie making software with GoPro.
    • I chose this reflection because we accomplished a lot and are looking forward to accomplish more on this project. We also learned that there are more resources then just the internet, we can use Cole's Dad Mr. Hurley and Sam L for this project too.
  • Today we finished building our robot and it took us about 45 minutes to do the programing for the guitar I think we worked well he hit some bumps, but our guitar plays cords and makes the noises we put into the program. I personally think we worked really well this week.
    • I chose this reflection because we accomplished a lot that week, we also learned how hard and long it takes to program software onto an NXT Robot. I also chose this reflection because it shows what we have accomplished on this project.
  • Peer Critique

  • I like how you are making a remix not on iMovie, maybe after you are finished you can post some of the cool tricks that you can do, but not on iMovie.
    • I chose this as my top critique because it gave the most detail and it gave the most insight about there project, and it could possibly improve there project a lot in the future. I believe this critique gave them another way to look at there project. I also chose this because it gave him something to add in the future.

  • I liked you project but could you add more pictures of different things like animals, water or something interesting. Or take more pictures a day because you said you take one a day. Maybe you could possibly get colored lenses, so your picture looks like a shade of blue, with the same background.
