Reflection on feedback
One of our tasks for this assessment was to give feedback to our peers for their blogs. I received feedback from both Emilia Stawski and Mirjana Vrankovic.
Below are the links to my marked rubrics.

I was happy with the feedback I received from Mirjana. It made sense and I agree with it 100%. There is only one thing I disagree with and that was the feedback for the sentences after my pinterest link. To me it sounds fine; it may sound unclear to others. I re read it over and over and could not figure out what Mirjana meant. The changes I made were to the few grammatical errors Mirjana picked up. Simple mistakes in which I didn’t see. I also added images for visual material to back up my work.
The feedback I received from Emilia was unexpected. I was really happy with it. She gave me all positive feedback, the only negative was that she suggested changing some of the pictures to try and hide any redundant links. I had a go at what Emilia had suggested, however it did not work for me. I tried to figure it out but nothing I did erased the links.
I enjoyed this task of giving and receiving feedback.
#6 blog entry: lifelong learning
This week’s topic was lifelong learning. Todays’ learning is not just what happens at school. It is now seen as a broad spectrum, we learn throughout our lives. Digital technology has had a huge impact on our learning. An example of this is if we are unsure about something, the meaning of something, where to find something particular we turn to Google. It is as easy as getting your phone out of your pocket or bag and googling. Simple.
The term “you learn something new everyday” I think is spot on.
The task for this week was to explore what it means to be a global citizen. “It is someone who identifies with being part of an emerging world community and whose actions contribute to building this communities values and practices” (Israel, 2013)
We were asked to choose one of these organisations (The Global Poverty Project, BandAid, The Earth Day Network or The Oceania Project) and prepare a short presentation on it. I chose to do a presentation on BandAid.
Below is the link to my PowerPoint presentation on BandAid.

I chose BandAid because nobody else did. I read everyone else’s and learnt what the other organisations involved so I was curious about BandAid. This orgnisation raises money for anti-poverty efforts in Ethiopia.

#5 blog entry: Digital Blurring
This week we explored digital blurring. Is what we do in our private lives influencing our public or work lives? For younger learners playing the WII or PlayStation assists them with hand-eye coordination and the development of fine motor skills is faster if they are constantly being challenged (Howell, 2014).
For this weeks task we were asked to create our own online game using Sploder. I found this task extremely difficult to process because I am not a computer genius nor do I play any of these types of games. I spent hours mucking around and trying to figure out how to create one. The end result was not good. The game I finally created after spending so much time on somehow deleted. I have no idea how or why; maybe I clicked on something I do not know. I was not happy, I was angry with the computer and myself. I walked away from it and have not attempted to go back to it and have another go. I know I should never give up but after spending a lot of time on it and this happening I have not been able to attempt it again. I will eventually go back to it but not just yet.
