For some sort of reason it says my file is too big because I’m using PPT.
Doing a card-point video. But a slow one. Making it fit with the music.
-How many time do we have for the presentation?
I hope to engage my audience by making it really fit with the music and make the sites and the evidence really clear for the audience to see.
(My video exceeds the upload for this site, I will send my video in email.)
Looking back at this project I learned how to make my video really coordinated with the music also adding game features that makes it better. One thing I am proud of doing is making my video coordinated and making it all set when I was supposed to.
“What zone are you in now?”
“I’m in the green zone.”
The green zone is also known as the “Excelling” zone. Sometimes feeling a rush of excitement or just feeling really happy and calm. Which also means that you don’t have anything you need to worry about and your all set for the day. Looking on the outside, a lot of people shows happiness and joy, also looking calm, with nothing to worry about.
“Can you tell me some strategies about how you stay in the green zone then?”
Based on our math unit we made a schedule on what we are doing & How much screen time we’re using and recording data in our notebook. For example: I watched 1hr of Tv on Wednesday. And so, I learned what I need to manage for staying in the green zone.
At night, I usually put my phone in a different room and let it charge itself so I can use it in the next day. Also, my mom will set screen time for me just in case if I don’t follow the time limit. My average phone time for a day is about 30~50 minutes. I sometimes use my phone to communicate with my family and friends, on the other side, also using my phone for learning. For example, I use zoom for team meetings on DX.
“Continue on then!’’
Some of my habits for using tech is to set a timer for how much time I’m going to use it or just set the screen time on my phone. A really challenging thing for me is to put my phone in a different room when I’m working. Sometimes I just thought people would text me during my working time, so I usually put my phone beside me when I’m working. A different idea I thought would be good is to mute my phone or shut it down.
Usually, when I can’t sleep, I then stay up till two o’clock and listen to the music on the phone for a long time. And that affects my sleep really badly. Sometimes I’ll try putting my phone in a different area when I’m going to sleep. Or my mom would usually take all my electronics away before I sleep.
“It sounds nice.”
“It sure does.”
As Project Collision shifted due to the Covid-19 virus from a collaborative school project to an individual home project, a big challenge that I faced was not being connected with people from different time zones.
To overcome this challenge, I tried to set up a time on WeChat with them to make sure we finish something. For example, I can send my pitch to Charlott, and I send mines to her. That makes us have feedback from our pitch.
Before this project I used to think that no matter what materials you use, then you will get the same findings. Now I think that’s wrong because based on our Drops, I noticed that different materials can benefit different things.
For example, when our group tested nylon ropes, it worked best, and the other ropes, didn’t quite work well, so we decided to use nylon ropes for our parachute.
Looking back on Collision, I learned that how items have velocity through when it drops, also having differences on different materials. For example, when we test our suspension ropes. We used three different types to ensure our parachute is at the best. Also knowing that sometimes you need to test three times to find the average velocity and time it dropped on the floor.
One area where data supported my thinking was how the time and velocity affects the parachute itself and the package attached to the parachute, and how the items inside the box changed when the parachute dropped.
