What have you learnt
about technologies from
the process of
constructing this product?
The technologies which I have
Photoshop- I have used Photoshop when I was studying in ICT
at GCSE. The teacher gave us a textbook that taught us how
to use the Photoshop. It’s easy to use for me because I could
use it very well in very shortly time. I learnt many things, such
as how to change the lighting of the original pictures.
Digital camera- I used to play on digital cameras when I was
really young. Every time I went to somewhere for travel with
my family, I’d like to use it took some pretty views and
people. I knew that I need to open flesh when it’s dark, how to
press the button to shoot, and how to shared those pictures I
Recorders (podcast)- Again! I used this in ICT at GCSE. It’s a
technology I have to know how to use on my course work. I
used the software in my laptop (MacBook pro). It’s easy to use
Microsoft word- I always used this software to type my
homework. It easily useful on me because it can help me to do
the correction on my English writing. I always have spelling
and grammar mistakes because English is not my first
Microsoft PowerPoint- I always used it when I needed to make
a presentation. When I was in China, our ICT lessons in there
was teaching us how to make a good presentation by using
Paint- I used this technology to draw some random things.
However, when I was in GCSE, I knew that I can use this to
paste the screenshot.
IMovie (video)- At the beginning of the year, we learnt many
things about film and filming. I used this technology to help
me finish my homework which is to produce a short film.
InDesign- I never used this software before.
This is the first time to use InDesign to finish
some parts of the course work. At the
beginning, I felt this is a bit difficult to use
because the menus are different with other
software, such as Photoshop. For example, in
Photoshop I click “File” and then click “Open”, I
will get the file I want to edit in front me.
However, in InDesign, after I click “File”, then I
have to click place to get the files I want to use
in front of me.
Blog- I had never signed up to a blog before. In
China, Blogger is blocked by the government. I
can’t browse this website when I’m in China.
However, there is a similar website which the
government allow Chinese people to use. So
Blogger is not hard to use for me. I think it is
very interesting to post my course work onto
my own blog.
Poll- I didn’t know how to set up the poll on my
blog. My teacher helped me and taught me how
to use. So I used the poll on my magazine’s
Prezi- I never used this before. I was using this
to link all my evaluations together. It’s not hard
