Technology/Multimedia Round 5

This round is one of the coolest rounds for me. We have the whole round ( about three weeks) to work on independence project. We can create our own project base on what we have learned or something related to technology. I personally choose to work on python coding using Trinket. First, I started with the original code that the trinket has provided, then started to add on with the different idea. I started with a secret message, which is already provided, then I started to support the idea with secret emoji, and secret password, together it forms the secret language. I am a little behind the team because I have senior exploration. One thing that is even going worst, which make me a headache is that on the last day of the school year for this class, I realize that I lost my code. My pressure diamond is sunk into the ocean sea. I don’t really know what is going on. However, it is a lot to say with responsibilities.

The sunshine after a bad storming, I got up after an unfortunate circumstance. Now I am working on Photoshop. Photoshop and photography are always been passionate. However, I decided not to work on it because there are a lot of people who were working on photoshop. One of the hardest parts of photoshop a photo is to choose a photo. Sometimes, I have the idea of what I am going to do. However, when I go to my file, there’s no picture that is good enough for my idea. It’s also really difficult to learn how to photoshop each image as we want it to be. However, when those problems come to me, I would search photo on the internet and use Photoshop Essential as my tutorial website. I find myself enjoy doing it, so when I am free, I would photoshop pictures to use my time productivities. Besides making your photo looks cool, photoshop image also make your more creative and more productive. 

Rebel Wilson is a 39 years old Australian actor. I started to know her by Perfect Pitch movie, and I think that she play the character really well, she is such a good actor. In this picture, I blend her picture with a blending color because I think that she is a rock star in my heart. 

What’s about rainbow eyes? It’s seem likes there are not many eyes that have the rainbow color. In this picture, I wanted to show that everyone can be as creative as they can be and see the world in different and many ways. 

 

 

 

 This photo was taken one year ago ( 2018). This is just an experiment that I have made using grid and color that have provided in photoshop. 

Technology/Multimedia Round 4

In multimedia/technology class this round, we continued coding by using the Python program. However, it’s getting more advanced. We studied the function, list and Python dictionary. Coding is really useful in some sort of way. To practice our lesson, we also use code club as our assistant. We can learn things that are helpful for our daily life such as team chooser, rock paper scissors game and password generator. In code club, we look at the assignment and then write the code base on the description. Writing code base on instruction is easy, but to choose by challenge I challenge myself to do all of the challenges that they provide. My favorites are team chooser and password generator. In other classes, especially math class, we use random.org to choose a team. However, now we can use our code to choose the team for us. For password generator, I can create a complex password at anytime I want. I admit that technology is really useful for our daily life nowadays.

Here are the link to my coding:

Technology/multimedia Round 3

Coding! I have never dreamed of learning it. It used to always gives me a headache. I didn’t need to code to get that stressfulness, only looking at all of the letter and number on other people screen able to make my brain explode. Recently, I started to like coding since I have entered the Python programming world. Python, that what we learned in technology/multimedia class. We learned string,  boolean, and loop on the 3rd round. In my free time, I would choose to code because I really like it now. In my calendar, there would at least 30 minutes of coding exist every day. I think that Coder is smarter than coding.

Technology/Multimedia Round 1

In multimedia/technology class we were focusing on digital storytelling, photography, and videography. For digital storytelling, our facilitator, Cindy was using Pixar story structure as an example for us to understand more about the lesson.

Pixar Story Structure:

Onece upon the time…………..

Everyday………………………………….

Until one day…………………………

Because of that…………………….

Because of that…………………….

Until finally………………………………

My classmates and I also write stories by using the Pixar story structure. Below is a story that I have written in a class. Its title is “The Liar”.

                                                            The Liar

 

There was an older brother who named Jazz lives with his younger sister, Emily. Jazz is a liar, who lie everything to everyone. Jazz found himself enjoy telling a lied. Every day, he kept telling everyone a lied, especially Emily. One day Jazz told Emily that “ Dear Emily, do you know that our parent is in New York with their business?”. After Emily hearing that, she suddenly asked the following up question since she’s never seen her parent for 13 years since she was born. “Which part of New York are they in? What kind of company are they running? Why they’ve never been visiting us? Why would not I ever hear any news from them? Are they alright?”. Emily asked so many questions with wonder and love inside her heart. “I won’t tell you, Emily. Don’t you think it is mysterious? Would you like to found it out by yourself? That would be a surprise behind that”. Jazz told Emily. “Can we visit them Jazz? I want to see them once”. Emily suddenly request. “No, not that early.” Jazz replied. Emily kept asking Jazz to visit their parent, but Jazz kept disagree. “I am going to meet them no matter what,” Emily told her mind. She left Jazz secretly with her plan and her saving money with her. Emily finally arrived in New York without knowing nobody. “Wow! It is a big city, but I am going to do it. I am going meet them!” Emily said confidently. Back to Jazz, since he realized that Emily was going to New York, he was right straight followed Emily. Jazz was asking and looking for Emily, but no news about his sister. Until one day, Jazz accidentally saw Emily laid on the road with blood bleeding through her whole body. “What’s going on Emily?” Jazz asked with his a drop of crystal rolling on his cheek. “ I love you Jazz, I really want to meet our parent, but I know that I would never meet them,” She told Jazz. “ Because it is my laaaasst timmmee of being on this Earth” she continued with a hard time to breath “I am so sorry Emily, but our parents are all died since you were 5 months, I should not lie you about that. I am so sorry” Jazz felt so sorrow about the thing that’s happened. “I can forgive for that, but promise me that next time you won’t lie anyone” said Emily. “ I will not lie anyone anymore!” Jazz replied with his tear all over on his cheek. Emily’s hand dropped down from Jazz’s cheek. “Emily!!!”. Jazz tried to wake Emily up, but she’s gone and will never return back. “I’ll try my best not to lie anyone” Jazz promised himself.

 

Multimedia/Technology Round 1

For this year, we have both Multimedia/Technology class and STEM in the same hour, but this thing works with taking turn. For an example, If I have STEM this week, so next week I will have Multimedia/ Technology. The first week of this essential, we got to learn some basics about research skill. It started with how do we begin with research, the primary resource/ secondary resource, and some useful tips about doing research on google. I also got practice using the lessons that we have learned. It is a really useful lesson because I do a lot of research in my writing, as well as in class. The second week of technology/multimedia class, we started to do some Adobe programs such as Adobe Indesign, Adobe Lightroom, and Adobe Photoshop. They are brand new programs for me. However, as I got some help from my classmate and my facilitator, I can go along and enjoy these new things. From now on I can develop my work such as photos, pictures, and posters by using those programs.
