English B30 Final Speech Outline

Image Detail

I know a lot of you made speeches before but I wanted to share this because I hate it when people have difficulty on certain thing such as speeches, essays, and making outlines. I gone through a lot in my life and I hope that no one experiences that troubles and frustrations I faced when making one of these. THIS IS NOT a CREDIBLE source of info but this outline can give you an idea of the expectation.

Outline

Causes

Based on Historical Studies-Racism-Prevalent- Human-History

Some believe that specific groups are more superior .

Human beings have tried to justify different treatment of people based on race, traits , capabilities.

In order to find out the cause of racism, one must look into the capitalist society,

Shadowing Someone Episode 3: “The Students of Vanier”

Image Detail

My third week in Jean Vanier is to focus on reflecting on the students of school. The student’s ages ranges from 4-20. They are divided in via age groups and difficulty of care. I.E. 4-6 years old would be classified as the youngest. Like I said in the previous logs, the students in Jean Vanier are not considered “normal” by our society. These students have learning disabilities, deformities, mental diseases, and autism which make them unable to meet regular school division expectations. Instead, despite their learning disabilities, they are still taught with lessons with minimal difficulty as much as possible such as simple storytelling, arts and crafts, and simple cooking.  The student interact with the use of pictures depicting what they need like food, toothpaste, and drinks. Most of the students lack the ability to speak and utter words. Some of the students lack patience when trying to communicate like one student that was assigned to me name “Caitlyn”. She can’t walk properly, doesn’t speak, and screams when her patience runs out. I had to act accordingly based on what I have been debrief by the supervisor; to handle everything with care, and to adjust to every situation given. Students in Vanier are given tasks and assigned to one teacher. Their main task is to behave and take consideration of their other classmates because some of them lack the skills to communicate properly and they all end up shouting and sometimes fighting in class. For me, the learners in Jean Vanier as the teachers themselves. Every day, they learn to adjust to their student’s behaviour due to the unstable minds that they have regarding their respective conditions. Also, it is also to take note that the teachers rotate their assigned students and learn to handle their situations. Students of Vanier play an essential part of the school. Why? They are sent to school by their parents to actually “teach” the teachers of their condition and give them a different perspective of life that can use to improve themselves as educators.

Learning Project Linker #6: Bashing Through Online….Again? Hours Spent 6 Hours

Image Detail

These days have been very tough on me due the unending homework that I have been having lately. I was like, nope, I’m gonna play Assassin’s Creed and “chilloot” for a while hahaha. What I found out was playing 6 hours straight can actually give strains to your eyes, mind, and body. I’m a gamer and I was always use to be exposed to video games for long period but that was years ago. Why? because Video games have evolve from sparingly awful graphics to high definition 3d game play and the expectations are very very high especially from the hit games such as Call of Duty, God of War, and Final Fantasy. I’m finally putting the hardest challenges that happen to me during the duration of this learning project.

The difficulties that I have experience was my Internet connection. If you’re internet connection sucks, don’t even attempt to play this game online, because lag issues will emerge all over the place and ruin your gameplay. Also, it will disconnect very often due to the technical difficulties that are presents in the game.

Another difficulty, was group isolation. this means that you can’t switch teams once a team of four formed a group. they will own and kill you every time, They will stun you repeated and escape most of your chase sequences, and they will rack up the most point and make you lose.

Lastly, The Final difficulty that I had was the trash talking in the lobbies. I don’t personally talk shit on my the lobbies and games but I shout when I win and what I find humiliating is that a lot of people talk shit at you with your proper consent  and reason. I dislike people who do that and proclaim themselves as bona fide “professional” players when they’re not.

Well, I over did it 27 hours and still counting ’cause I still have to finish the campaign mode and rock at it due to the experience I earned from multiplayer mode but, until then, You just have to wait lol. Peace out! for now that is lol

Gaming on the Move Issue#1: DDR

Hi I was cleaning up my hard drive and I came upon this video that I made ages ago. In my learning projects, I haven’t shown any of my game footages because I do not have recording device. However DDR has it on its system and I was able to record it with the help of Playstation Eye Camera. Obviously my gameplay is not perfect but, I did the best that I could. Enjoy!

Modern Warfare 3 Sells For $1,725 On Ebay

Tech Task# 7 – Educational Gaming

“Find and play an educational game. Write a short review on it. Consider Sylvia’s perspectives and your own as your write.”

Well I’m gamer and I love Math as well so I choose a very interesting game that suits my skills and gives me a challenges at the same time.

This game is called Baloon Invaders, a game that challenges your mathematical ability and at the same time challenges your finger dexterity.

In this game you play a person whose mission is to save the world from balloons with numbers on it? too serious? yeah that’s not it lol.

This game’s main purpose is to train you on memorizing either multiplication or division. But wait, there is a catch. this is where the core gameplay pops in.

you are given a a multiplication or a division question and you need to pop the balloon that corresponds to the question. pretty easy right? Here’s a bigger catch.

The balloons move sideways until they fall to you, so if you pop the wrong balloon, you lose a chance to get the question that the balloon has. furthermore hit 2 balloons and the game ends.

This game not only challenges your mathematical ability but you finger dexterity as well. This game actually reminds me of Galaga

This game is good practising multiplication and division but noticed that there technical issues and bugs that I noticed while playing it. However, this game can  also prove to be very useful when you’re training to think faster and give your fingers more dexterity for writing on your pc.

I am giving it an 9/10 because this game its not for the likes of everyone but if you want you’re a math person like me or just want something different for change, then this game is definitely for you.

Tech Task #6: Global Classroom Response

Write a blog post about this session. Include some ideas and links you found interesting. Discuss ways you might incorporate these ideas into your classroom.

Last Week, our class had the opportunity to have a session with Silvia Tolisano as a guest speaker. She talked about Global Learning and shared techniques students and classrooms around the world are learning with each other. I found her lecture very interesting because this was a different perspective in what I am used to do with technology.  She showed many ways and examples on how we can connect with people from different parts of the world. I pinpointed two examples from her lecture that really stood out among the rest:

1. Teddy Bears Around the World – Is a program that Silvia Tolisano put together. This program will enable her students to see each other’s countries, customs and traditions through the eyes of our “teddy bears” and open their horizons through a more global perspective. I personally think that this idea amazing. However,  it aims to capture younger students in the program with having the portrayal of Teddy Bears as being friendly.

2. Around the World with 80 Schools – Is also a challenge that Silvia put together. The challenge is to connect your students with 80 schools from around the world via Skype.  This challenge is very interesting  because it shows the another purpose of Skype; Online Teaching. So far, 600 teaches across the world have used this challenge to connect to other people across the world.

With these programs and people like Silvia Tolisano, Eliminating Global Illiteracy is within our grasp.
