We made a tech project for language arts class. We did our project about Google Docs. This project may or may not be shown to people who make this big decisions at D.A. Though the process was mostly smooth, we did encounter some very annoying problems. We filmed our movie on a flip camera. Then we downloaded it on to iMovie, and problems instantly occurred. We put in our video, but our audio was too quiet, so we boosted the volume to 500%. This definitely solved our problems. Next, iMovie was being annoying and whenever I moved my mouse, it moved where I was in the movie. This made us mad, but we overcame. It ended up being a good project.
In LA we did a project on the iPads. For my project, I did a video of useful apps on the iPad. I used the camera app on Cole’s iPad and I then realized that there was no way to get it out of that app. Just to be sure we went to the Technology teacher, Mr. Schaefer. When we learned that even he didn’t know how to get it out of the camera app, we realized we would have to do it in a different app. So I used a camera to record it and I tried to put the recording in an email. It turns out the recording was too big to go in an email. Mrs. Donnelly then helped us put the video in Voicethread, where we added an intro and sent the project back to Mrs. Donnelly. This is how we problem solved in the technology project.
The problems that I have had with my laptop is that at first the charger would not turn on. When it wouldn’t work I went to Mr.Schaefer and he tried to make it work. Once I got to G period my laptop was there charging.
My second problem was that my computer would just randomly fall asleep and it would take me a long time to wake it up. I told Mr.Schaefer and he told me to give it to him. I gave it to him and he took it away and let me use a substitute computer. The next day he came and told me that he gave me a new computer.
My third problem was that the newest charger that Mr.Schaefer gave me would not work either. The chargers that I had had were the new type. After I told Mrs.Donnelly about my problem with my charger she told Mr.Schaefer and he gave me one of the old chargers.
