Question 6

  1. 1. Question 6: What have you learnt about technologies from the process of constructing this product?<br />By Charlotte Alderson <br />
  2. 2. Digital cameras <br />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 <br /> technology in order to create effects and <br /> use angles and lighting. I found using this<br /> equipment really interesting to use.<br />
  3. 3. Apple mac computers<br />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 <br /> are so different to how the windows computers <br /> work but they are very user friendly and I have <br /> learnt a lot from using them.<br />
  4. 4. In design <br />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 <br />Using it.<br />
  5. 5. Photoshop<br />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 <br /> contents page of my magazine. I learnt many <br /> things about the use of the functions of photo<br /> shop. I found this software really good and vital <br /> to the making of my magazine.<br />
  6. 6. I photo<br />IPhoto was another piece of software that was <br />available on the mac computers. I used it to upload <br />all the photos that I took and it also helped my select <br />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.<br />
  7. 7. Photo booth <br /> I used photo booth for my research and <br /> evaluation of my product. It is another piece of<br /> software that was on the mac computers that I <br /> 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.<br />
  8. 8. blogger<br />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.<br />
  9. 9. Garage band<br />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 <br />sounds. I only used this software very briefly but <br />I believe that I can adapt the skills I have learnt to <br />create more music in the future.<br />
  10. 10. Final cut express<br />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, <br /> shorten and rearrange clips of the videos. I <br /> found final cut express really good and simple to <br /> use and I believe I learnt a lot.<br />
  11. 11. prezi<br />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 <br /> presentations. This is a really great piece of software of conveying information.<br />
  12. 12. Go animate & voki<br /> 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. <br />Voki is another piece of software that does a similar job<br />to go animate but uses a smaller window to present<br />characters and is another really interesting way of showing text<br />
  13. 13. pixton<br />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.<br />I learnt how to create the comic strip and the different functions of the pixton website. <br />
  14. 14. YouTube<br />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. <br />I found this very easy to do and <br />I know that I will continue to use<br />and upload more.<br />
  15. 15. Internet research <br />Internet provided me with a lot of websites that I used including:<br /> – finding different fonts for my magazine<br />Google images <br />Researching different products <br />YouTube<br />Slide share <br />And many more <br />
  16. 16. PowerPoint & slide share<br /> I used PowerPoint to create many presentations <br /> for my magazine. They are really useful to use <br />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 <br />using slide share and all of its <br />capabilities.<br />
  17. 17. …final thought<br />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<br /> and everything I used to get there.<br />
