Primarily I learned that when doing similar projects it is important for me to derive several designs or solutions to a problem in order to choose the best one. I think this was one of the factors that greatly attributed to the project as the group was able to choose the optimal possible design for the particular project. This is certainly a strategy to utilize in the future.
Balistrieri, told the class that we can be creative as we want to and we can do anything our hearts desire for an upcoming project that was due in a month's time. When he said those words to us, I did not have one clue what to do for this project, I did not have any inspirations or aspersions. The first thing I did a few days later, was to make sure that I was in the correct headspace to have a strong work ethic. The next thing that I found myself doing was writing all of my ideas down on paper, but my ideas seemed too basic for me to complete within a month, so I decided to take a few more days off to find the perfect project for me by getting inspired from YouTube videos, my past work and Pinterest pictures. A few weeks later when it was time to present it to my classmates, everyone was amazed at what I had accomplished in such a short period of time, my completed project was an outer space themed project that moves throughout
The article “Project-Based Instruction: A Great Match for Informational Texts” by Nell K. Duke, discusses the concept of implementing project based learning and how it can markedly improve student’s education. According to Duke, project based instruction involves “working over an extended time period for a purpose beyond satisfying a school requirement” (Duke 2016). This includes doing projects in order to “build something, to create something, to respond to a question [students] have, or to solve a real problem” (Duke 2016). The article maintains the benefits of this type of instruction and includes specific examples of how it can be implemented in the school curriculum and Common Core State Standards. Duke also emphasizes how the projects should serve a real- life purpose so students can feel more engaged knowing their work will be seen by
In the beginning, I was frustrated and puzzled about what I was going to do as my project because no good ideas came to mind. On the day we wrote down what we planned on
My project was about me coaching a U8 girls soccer team. My goal was to have every player on the team learn how to play soccer and be able to play every position on the field by the end of the season. I coached my players by teaching and mentoring them so that they could advance in necessary skills needed to play soccer which were dribbling, passing, shooting, and teamwork. I chose this as my project because my greatest passion in life is playing soccer. I spend around 15 hours a week practicing and playing soccer. So when I decided to choose a project based on my personal interests, soccer was my first choice. I also love to help out others and the community so I spent a lot of time researching ways to influence my community as
This project was really important to be because I was able to better understand how to resolved
For my 20 time project I did two things. The first was that I made a sign. The sign was cut out from a big sheet of steel, and then I programed the laser cutter to cut out the sign with a little help. The second thing I did was fix my broken four wheeler, I did this by welding a piece that broke off back on. I had help from my dad's friend who is the one who owns a laser cutter and the welder.
When this project was introduced I didn’t think I would really enjoy learning the content or making the final product at all. This assumption was based on the preliminary research at the beginning of the project that we did individually. It was a lot of reading, taking notes, asking questions, etc. Overall I did not enjoy this part of the project but I can see now why it was so useful to me in the end. If I didn’t do this preliminary research and I wouldn’t have has as clear of an understanding of what we were expected to learn in this project and what we were suppose to end up creating a final product on.
It is like putting together a puzzle, the thought of building a computer can probably seem like a daunting task, but its amazingly simple and I figured it out just by watching YouTube videos. The most challenging part of a PC build is selecting the best parts that are right for you, there are hundreds, if not thousands of different parts to choose from and they are all not created equal. PCPartPicker is just one site for the task, they have all of the parts ever created on file and you can simply select which ones you want from all the choices; including graphics cards, motherboards, RAM sticks, SSDs, HDDs, coolers, cases, and even your peripherals. It took me several weeks to compile the list of parts I would need, some of my friends gave me advice and information on the best parts as well as the ones to stay away
Research- Even a little bit of research can help. This is very useful, especially for the next step. Searching what each part does can help building the PC. Also, seeing different tutorials on how to build a PC or how to choose parts can help later on.
Recalling from the previous week, there was what may have been thought of as the daunting, yet interesting assignment given, the project. With that assignment, came the challenge of choosing a subject that could be narrowed down making it easier to work with, in conjunction with certain steps in the process that could be followed such as, eliminating procrastination and tools that could be utilized that would assist in the efforts of making the project successful. Over multiple days and possibly some restless nights of the rolodex of the mind flipping from one card to another, the project seemed to start to come together or in the very least grow from essentially approaching the starting line to actually being at the starting line. The
I set up my project in the order that lead to the women’s liberation movement. This project taught me to do an annotation that will be helpful in the future when I do research papers in college. Also, it taught me to manage my time when doing this project. I had to accomplish each assignment on its due date, so it wouldn’t pile up on
during this project I learned a lot. I learned how to balance out supplies and and cost. How the world of business kind of works by balancing out quality and quantity. I learned the real difference between wants and needs. Like how if we all had what we wanted whenever we wanted it there would be mass chaos.
The first thing that you want to do is to get all your tools and parts together. The tools that you will need are a Phillips screw driver and a ¼'; socket wrench. The basic parts that you must have are a motherboard (PC Board), a video card, a sound card, some RAM (Random Access Memory), a hard drive, a 3 ½'; floppy A drive, and a computer case. For these particular instructions you will need a
In approaching this project I wanted to get several things out of it. First and foremost, I wanted to take the time I had to create something I was genuinely proud of and get to use in real life. Additionally, I wanted to build on my time management, reviewing, and graphic design skills. Initially, when I think back the project was
