Question 6 Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Question 6: What have you learnt about technologies from the process of constructing this product?
    By Charlotte Alderson
  • 2. Digital cameras
    I used the high tech digital cameras to take the photos for my magazine and for my test shoots. I also used the lighting equipment. I had never used this type of technology before but I was able to learn about not only how to use the technology but how to use this
    technology in order to create effects and
    use angles and lighting. I found using this
    equipment really interesting to use.
  • 3. Apple mac computers
    I have never owned an apple mac computer, nor before I began this course, used one but all though at first I found them quite difficult, I quickly adapted to the way macs work. They
    are so different to how the windows computers
    work but they are very user friendly and I have
    learnt a lot from using them.
  • 4. In design
    In design was one of the pieces of software that I used when using the mac pcs. I found this piece of software quite complicated but it taught me many things in the magazine production process, including alignment, structure and positioning of a magazine. There were many functions to in design software and I learnt a lot from
    Using it.
  • 5. Photoshop
    I used photo shop in many sections of my magazine production, research and analysis. I used it to edit, manipulate and improve photographs and also used it to put together the front cover and
    contents page of my magazine. I learnt many
    things about the use of the functions of photo
    shop. I found this software really good and vital
    to the making of my magazine.
  • 6. I photo
    IPhoto was another piece of software that was
    available on the mac computers. I used it to upload
    all the photos that I took and it also helped my select
    The ones I wanted. I had never used this software before but I found it really easy to use. I learnt how to select, crop and make slight changes to the photographs.
  • 7. Photo booth
    I used photo booth for my research and
    evaluation of my product. It is another piece of
    software that was on the mac computers that I
    hadn’t used before but found it very easy to use. I learnt how to make simple videos and effectively give feedback to my magazine and others comments.
  • 8. blogger
    I used blogger a lot in the magazine production. I have used it to share posts about the process that I went through in researching, editing and evaluating my magazine. I learnt about the way I should present information and also how to use the software as I had never had or used a blog before. I found it a really good way of showing the process of my work.
  • 9. Garage band
    This is another piece of software on apple computers that can help you create sounds and songs originally. I used this to put music behind one of my evaluation questions. I learnt how to use this software and how to search and create different
    sounds. I only used this software very briefly but
    I believe that I can adapt the skills I have learnt to
    create more music in the future.
  • 10. Final cut express
    I used this software to put videos together. It was very useful in both the research and evaluation of my product. You can easily add and edit pictures and sounds. I also learnt how to cut,
    shorten and rearrange clips of the videos. I
    found final cut express really good and simple to
    use and I believe I learnt a lot.
  • 11. prezi
    Prezi is an online presentation tool that make presenting materials such as text, pictures and videos with ease and in a really interesting manor. I learnt how to present, make, edit, zoom and create
    presentations. This is a really great piece of software of conveying information.
  • 12. Go animate & voki
    I used go animate to make one of my evaluation questions. It is a brilliant piece of online software to create animations and characters that can say and convey everything you write. I learnt how to use this software and all of the functions that it offers.
    Voki is another piece of software that does a similar job
    to go animate but uses a smaller window to present
    characters and is another really interesting way of showing text
  • 13. pixton
    Pixton is another piece of internet software that I used to create another way of presenting data. I was able to create a comic strip showing the processes within the music industry.
    I learnt how to create the comic strip and the different functions of the pixton website.
  • 14. YouTube
    I have become very familiar with YouTube and have used it many times but it is only since creating my magazine which I have ever had an account with YouTube and so therefore have learnt to upload and embed my own videos.
    I found this very easy to do and
    I know that I will continue to use
    and upload more.
  • 15. Internet research
    Internet provided me with a lot of websites that I used including: – finding different fonts for my magazine
    Google images
    Researching different products
    Slide share
    And many more
  • 16. PowerPoint & slide share
    I used PowerPoint to create many presentations
    for my magazine. They are really useful to use
    however I have used them before so I didn’t generally learn more about them in my project but I did learn how to upload them both on the internet and on Slide share. I learnt a lot from
    using slide share and all of its
  • 17. …final thought
    Throughout researching, making and evaluating my coursework I have used many types of technology and software. I have learnt many things about the use and functionality of everything I used. I have really enjoyed each stage of making my magazine
    and everything I used to get there.
