In our class, we’re just about to finish our unit How we organize ourselves. The central idea was: Being Organized Empowers us to take action more effectively. Our lines of inquiry is how to develop actions that are effective, reasons why people organize themselves and interactions between parts and people within. The way an organization empowers itself effectively is by having multiple people working together to make one great thing. With that we need leaders to tell them what to do like the board of executives. Speaking of leaders…
The type of leader I thought I was is the Visioner. Which means I’m imaginative, Passionate and I have the courage to dream. The tasks I would do is projects and proposals, mission statements, long term planning and Media relations. Speaking of that, some of the things I have as a gift is being a good writer because, I’m very creative and I can come up with a plot anytime and write it down. I’m also an artist (in coding) like I can understand lots of components in programs and use them for games. I’m also good listener because in group conversations, I listen to people’s ideas and add my own ideas back onto it. Lastly, I’m bilingual. I often help my friends with things they don’t understand in subjects I’m good at like coding or writing or something like that.
In class, we started to do something for this charity called two presents. For our group, our leader was Caitlyn and she was very organised so we finished very quickly. I would do all the techy stuff with the pixels, sizing and printing while Caitlyn and Chloe made a hand drawn one. Chloe would be the assistant and help with paper cutting and finding images or something. When me and Caitlyn had something to do Chloe would help us multitask. Which is why we worked very efficient in our group. When two present came to check our work, they were very pleased but we had a few errors like forgetting to write G5 cdnis and the shape but otherwise we did a good job. Some difficulties were that our group wasn’t participating and we weren’t committed to make the card but our group was committed to help the charity so that’s why we thought about if we finished the card we would help the charity. So we finished the card and in 2-3 weeks.
What I learnt from that unit is about kids who suffer in world problems. Like child labour, human trafficking, poverty and world hunger. I also learnt that we’re really lucky. What we’ve learnt is connected to the central idea because when we learnt about the kids that suffered, it empowered us to help them by helping this charity called two presents. The ways to develop actions that are effective is through the design cycle. Empathise, Define, Ideate, Prototype and Test. The interactions between parts and people in companies is people is a part of a company, people work to make some of the parts like goals and accomplishing them. The reasons why people organize themselves is so they can focus, get their jobs done and accomplish their goal like maybe their goal is to help people in world hunger so if they organize themselves, they could help the people who suffer in world hunger.
