For the past week, we conducted a survey on different advertisements to see which ones were the most persuasive. We formed groups and each group needed to have a few advertisements on a brand, product or idea. For our group we chose the chocolate brand Lindt Lindor. We had 5 different Lindt advertisements for people to choose. Our results shown that the Simply Irresistible (ad. 4) was the most persuasive because of the layout, color contrast and idea were of high-quality. After the surveys, we needed to use Pages to present our group’s and my find-outs through the advertisement survey.
Here is my PDF version on my findings:
Below is my reflection of this unit. This unit is about communication and our central idea is “Communication in it’s many forms facilitates connections.” The communication unit is ending THIS WEEK. In this unit, I learn about the different forms of communications, how to overcome the barriers on each type of communication, the connections made when communicating and the purpose as well as knowing the audience when communicating.

Bellow is a screenshot of a mind-map for different kinds of communication. It was part of the tuning- in activity. For this task, we needed to use Inspiration 8 IE to create a mind-map that shows our prior knowledge of different forms of communication. After making the map, we were to add images to some of the categories in the map.
Today, we finally completed our last genius hour. I’d finished all the work that I’m supposed to do!! When I go home, I’m going to see if I can make any improvements towards my calendar, I may also need to prepare for the exhibition. I am pretty confident on my working progress, the calendar also meets the purpose of using time wisely and efficiently! Yeah!
Today, we created a Hypertext Makeup Language (HTML) Web page!! This was my first time and of course it was quite hard. We needed to listen carefully to follow the correct instruction. Although the listening and watching part was hard, but I successfully made a web page that has text and an image on it!:) I’m really looking forward on continuing the creations of a webpage that I can control!! Yeah!! I’m so excited…
Week 3 of Genius Hour is finally COMPLETED!! During this week I caught-up on my SLOW working progress from last week. On Friday, I was searching for different icons/symbols to represent some events and special dates to remember. Though I made progress, but I’m still a little concerned on my working speed. I’m going to work also at home this week to really make sure that I have the enough amount of time to complete my calendar. Looking forward on the upcoming Friday, which also means the last week of Genius Hour…:(:)
*CROSS MY FINGERS!*
Today was the second week of genius hour. I did not accomplish what I planned because I didn’t use my time efficiently and wisely. What I did was cutting out the 12 colored paper (for each month) and started cutting out the calendar template. I had a lot of problems during these two periods, including, the broken of cutter, finding different color papers etc. I think I should continue working at home during my free time to make more progress!!:( The next step of my project is to decorate the template and gluing it on the color papers.
We did an activity in class on building blocks. In this game, we learned about the different ways to communicate as well as the barriers on communication through building blocks. We had different roles and forms of communication, afterwards we did a small reflection about each round. In this game, our group found out that oral language and hand gestures were the easiest way to communicate. It maybe because that we use them in our every-day life. The hardest was drawing the blocks out on paper.
We’ve finally started our Genius Hour project today!! I’m glad that I have accomplished my plan to find out what students like in a cool designed planner and also to plan out my ideas of the calendar. I also did a little research on making a successful planner as well as free website hosts etc. I’m pretty ready for next week’s creation of “Track Your Time”!!!
