  16. 16. Reflections Having been dancing for many years, I found this project extremely meaningful. Our teamJay has been very united and we played to each others’ strengths to maximize our efficiency and reach our full potential. With me and Jay overseas, we found that we had to make use of technology to communicate effectively with ourgroup members back home. Despite the time difference between the US and Singapore, we were still able to work together and overcome geographical Bo Geng boundaries. dance
  17. 17. Reflections This project taught me many Kah planning skills, such as thinking from the perspective of our target audience. We had to stepLoon into their shoes and were thus able to foresee potential problems, such as not knowing how to navigate the website. This made our project more focused and user-friendly. This project has greatly enhanced my organizational skills. Due to the large scale of our website, we had to make good use of technology to plan the website properly, such as using mind-mapping and drawing toconceptualize the website. We had to ‘detach’ ourselves from the website so that we could identify what’s missing from the website. Keefe dance
  18. 18. ReflectionsEugen As the main architect of our website, I had to constantly challenge myself to improve our website, both in its organization and design. I’ve learnt e many new IT skills, and always made sure our website was appealing from the eyes of Primary School children. I’ve also had a changed perspective towards dance, as it requires a high level of articulacy and initiative, similar to creating a website. dance
