Hello, welcome to my amazing blog.
This is my brand logo. It took me lots of time to create.
This bear app shows which are bears and which not. The app I am creating is not finished but almost done. It takes skills from previous apps and effort from previous apps. The process is simpler though. At first, we had to create a plan to know what we were doing on the actual app. Secondly, you create the app according to your plan.
The english short story was a very interesting unit. This unit showed me possibilities and opportunities. For example, a person stuck in war dealing with issues and trying to help his family.
If I had to choose any short story it would have to be metamorphosis. This story had great content of how a child turns into an insect. This amazing story talks about how he deals with problems of being an insect. Eventually, leading to his father by accident killing him.
The big challenge was creating a significant plot. With so limited words problems because small issues. The only time where you can spend a lot of words in is the main conflict which needs lots of words to be good. Another major problem I had is revealing character. I used it but it wasn’t that effective so the two characters didn’t have much going for them.
I learned that many things can happen even if it is unexpected or won’t happen. I also learned how to use Freytag’s pyramid to create a story that really gets the viewers engaged in the story.
Yes, it changes how I see life. Like in the metamorphosis it shows what can happen. Even though it is not realistic horrific things can happen. This made me change how I think of people, societies and communities
My goal was to create a chair comfortable with a shelf equipped somewhere on the side to put books and laptops. Also, my other goal was for this chair to be put in the library so reader can enjoy their books and put in on the shelf when they are not using it. This was my goal because I think chairs overall can be improved and be more useful. Throughout me working I slowly was working trough each problem. During the time when I was on test number 2 to 3 I created a goal to myself. This was to try to consume less time in the final structure. This is why the desk with the chair wasn’t going to be the best idea. When I was working on my final structure I started off slow but I went faster and faster saving more and more time.
How did I use Science
I learned that you should make easier structures better than making harder structures worse. My original plan was to create a chair with a desk but the desk would be too hard to incorporate inside the chair. I eventually changed it to shelf and chair
I experimented with changing the independent variable. From the number of corrugation pieces to the thickness of it. I tested out the weight to see if the paper can hold about 1 kilogram. I kept on trying to put more corrugation and finally I put the right number so it was able to hold about 1 kilogram so for the final structure when I actually create with cardboard the seat can hold people.
I used the results with Justin’s. We exchanged ideas leading up to the shelf and chair idea. Building this was not too hard for us and it is good that it is not too complication. In my opinion there was limited time so for it to be so complicated would be a big struggle.
I improved in many ways as a learner.
Throughout the whole process I have identified quite a few problems. Every new test prototype I fixed the problem but there were still more left. For example, in test #2 the corrugation wasn’t that good. So for test #3 I focused more on corrugation so it became better.
I have also gone through different problems like deciding what will go well with a chair. It was either going to be a shelf or desk. My partner and I went through many discussions and came up that a shelf would be significantly better.
Another way I improved taking ideas and thinking about them and how it could work in your structure. When we were doing rotations during science class, there was a rotation where you had to look at the link. I pressed on it and it showed me famous people designs of structures. One of them amazed me so much I took the idea of adding something onto a chair which overall improved the function of the chair.
As I partially said before, throughout this whole project I started working more efficiently because of limited time. To be honest, I didn’t have a system of managing my time so I just speeded up my pace to be able to finish my cardboard structure.
I used a label first for the title which is trying to show what the app is about
I then used image view and in my storyboard got a picture of the world
I used a button to put on the image view which I placed inside the code. I gave it a nice and made the connection an action
Finally, I put a label in my code to show than when you press the button it will say “You have found Waldo” and I again named it. A name I gave it was labelAnswer.
Statement of Inquiry
The connection between the mother tongue and other languages enables people to develop skills and knowledge in language and acquire new languages.
I find english as my mother tongue helpful in french. Lots of words in french are similar to words in english making it easier.
How can I use my knowledge of English to learn French? How can I introduce myself in French?
I can use english words that sound like french words and use them. For example, I know portrait de famille sounds like portrait of the family. Another example is, lettre in french means letter in english.
How are languages linked to one another?
Languages are linked because some languages are based of other. Like lots of European languages are based of Latin.
Does learning a new language make my mother tongue stronger?
With pronunciation and grammar french and english is similar. This will help me say words in french. Also, in french there is commas and most of the same punctuation in english.

In what ways did you create a successful VR video promo?
I created a successful VR video promo because I had my video represent effort which is what my logo was about. I showed different flags of countries to show globally everyone should give their best effort. The timing was good so I wasn’t there for too long closing the Ricoh Theta or starting the recording. Viewers said that it was too long because my video was 24 seconds when it was supposed to be 15. Then, I changed my video to around 15 seconds making it around the time you’re supposed to have your video last for.
What improvements would you make to you VR video promo?
My video could have been wider to show more than just flags. This will give viewers impressions that there is more to giving it all rather than showing flags. Also, my logo could have been placed better. I put it behind the main stairwell on the 10th floor. This just covered something that looked interesting relating to the video. But, because of my logo that small area looks a bit odd.
These are the responses to the questions:
We can apply how we learned to use google maps and google earth in one lesson so whenever we want to find a location or a destination when you are driving you can get there. Also, we can use maps not on technology using coordinates to track locations down making it much more efficient. Tracking down locations will be efficient because when you need to use a location anywhere in the world on a map you can find it. We learned to use Atlas’s so now we can look for cities, countries, continents, oceans all in the Atlas. This will be helpful because we can find a big range of places.
