1)      a) I plan to apply in the Academy of Art University, San Francisco, California for a MFA degree in visual effects and animation.

2)      I chose this job because that is what has always interested me. I have grown up watching sci-fi visual effects packed movies and I now I want to make the computerized special effects for those movies. This job requires a lot of patience and creativity from the makers side. You need to be good with computers and should know how to integrate real life images or footages with CG objects. I think what qualifies me to get a scholarship is that I have a lot of experience with creating movies and/or small videos with a lot of vfx in them. I, with a peer, created a vfx club in our school where we teach students how to add special effects in their videos. I might not have the best grades, but I think I have good enough grades and experiences to at least qualify for a scholarship.

3)      The programs that I have been exposed to in Mr. Zane’s technology class are:

I. WordPress: It is online program that allows you to create your own blog. Students in this class created their own blogs and kept updating them throughout the year with the contents of what we did in our class.

II. Jing: It is a screen capturing software. It allows you to take screen shots, make average quality on-screen videos, and upload them on an online database. We used Jing for taking snapshots of the things we would later use as evidence for our projects in the class.

III. Diigo: It is an online bookmarking program. Unlike the usual browser bookmarking system, using Diigo you can access your bookmarks, highlights, or notes from any computer around the world.

IV. Google Docs: Google docs is a very fast growing collaborating online “Microsoft Office” system. We used Google docs all year long in our technology class. It is a very useful and excellent way for collaborating with your peers. I personally have enjoyed Google docs the most out of all the things we have learned in this class.

V. Prezi: It is on online system that allows students to make interactive presentations, unlike PowerPoint. We have used Prezi in all of our presentation.

4)      Advanced Technology has allowed me to use/apply technology in all of my classes. It has showed me that I can use technology to understand/teach a certain concepts from other subjects. I can use technology not only to go on Facebook or play games, but also for spreading a word around, researching about useful topics, having an online education. For example, in one of our projects I made an Iphone app that would help students in studying for their AP Human Geography exams. Students can use technology to download the app and learn about some important geographers. This is also an convenient source because they can just use their Ipod to learn.

5)      When I started this class I thought that advanced technology will only be computer programming, learning cool softwares, and making java games. However, throughout the year I have learned that advanced technology is learning the kind of technology skills that stay uniform throughout your life, like research skills. Also to learn the proper technology skills that could help you contribute to the issues going around globally or even in your school.

6)      Using Technology to contribute to the people around me, and using effectively applying it wherever beneficially possible.

7)      I have used tools like Google Docs to collaborate with my peers in various projects in and outside of class. I have used my research skills to look up convenient and easy solutions for my problems online to solve them.

8)      The 4 C’s of 21st century skills are:

I.          Creativity: I have sued creativity in designing my projects and presentations throughout the year.

II.          Critical Thinking: I have sued critical thinking as an required and beneficial step for every project we have done this year. It included things like citing our sources and brainstorms.

III.          Communication: I have communicated with me peers, friends and some teachers to get information for some of my presentations.

IV.          Collaboration: I have collaborated with my partners during group projects in the class.

9)

Stan Winston – Award Winning VFX Artist of the Terminator

10)   I have used my technology skills to accomplish my goals in other classes or things outside of class, for example Google Docs. I have used Google docs in all of my classes, to write notes, for essays, presentations, I even used it to plan a movie me and my peer made. It is very useful as it keeps everything safe and at a secure place.

11)   I have used Advanced Technology to create an Iphone app that could helps students with their AP Human Geography class. This way students can download the app and learn about geographers whenever they want.  The evidence of this is posted on my Blog.

12)   Some of the important skills that I have learned in Advanced Technology are brainstorming, making outlines of your presentations beforehand so that it’s easy for you while you are presenting, organizing all your work at a place that is both convenient and safe so that you can access all your work wherever and whenever you like. For example for a project my friend and I were doing we stored all of our talks, notes, ideas, scripts everything on Google docs. That way we were able to access them from any computer we wanted to, we weren’t bound to bring a special PC to school just for one project.

13)   I think I should be awarded this position/job as I have had more experience in this field over my peers, I have a lot of practice in various softwares related to VFX on a PC, I am aware of the 21st century technology skills, and  I, along with a peer, started a VFX club after school where we taught students how t add special effects in movies.

14)   My mentor in this class was Mr. Zane Dicky. He continuously engages with me and tries to help me to get to a higher standard level of technological usage. He tries to motivate me and guide me towards accomplishing my projects.

15)   Upon joining and entering Advanced Technology, honestly speaking, my goal was to learn some new softwares, do some computer programming, and code some java games.

16)   When we started the courses of this class, I realized it won’t be anything like what I thought it will be before. After an yearlong of following that course I have developed new goals like learning useful technological skills that would help me to contribute to the world, learning about new ways of collaborating with peers, and developing efficient research and presentation skills.

17)   Google Docs was the  most useful tool we learned in Advanced Technology and I think this is the tool that will help me a lot throughout my education.

18)   My main motivation was to being able to present my topic in a nicely organized, yet still entertaining way. Also getting the chance to self-learn a new software was also very motivating.

19)   If I could transport one thing from this class I would transport the concept of letting students pick their own software to self-learn and then research and present to the entire class.

20)   To actually find out what to are the people who make VFX in movies called, I used to look at the end credits of every movie hoping I would find the official name of the job. When I finally did, I researched about it online and found what other kinds of jobs are their related to VFX. There are several kinds of positions on which a person can be ig he/she is making vfx for a movie. I also asked a few questions from a person who has actually effect for bog Hollywood movies about what is the job called? How does it work? What are the requirements for this kind of a job?

21)   I am very proud of the Iphone app I made in Advanced Technology. It was a thing I have been wanting to do for a very long time, but couldn’t find a proper reason to do it. Having my AP exams nearby and time in Advanced Technology, I made an Iphone app that could help me in AP Human Geography. I have all the evidence that I made the app and snapshots of the final product on my blog.

“Quizlet.” AP Psychology 500 Flashcard Set from Barron’s Flashcards. Quizlet. Web. 10 May 2012. <http://quizlet.com/subject/ap-human-geography/&gt;.

 

The link above allows me to verify the information I had prepared for AP Human Geography Exam.

 

– Paul Vidal de la Blache – introduced the contemporary culture landscape, sometimes called the regional studies approach; “Among the connections that tie people to a certain environment, one of the most tenacious is food supply; clothing and weapons are more subject to modification than the dietary regime, which experience has shown to be best suited to human needs in a given climate.”
– Ernest W. Burgess – a sociologist at the University of Chicago, developed the concentric-zone model in 1925 with five zones; a city grows outward from a central area in a series of concentric rings, like the growth rings of a tree.
– Walter Christaller – German geographer who in the early 1930s first formulated central-place theory as a series of models designed to explain the spatial distribution of urban centers. Crucial to his theory is the fact that different goods and services vary both in threshold and in range.
– Eratosthenes – coined the name geography: geo meaning “the earth” and graphein meaning “to write.” He is noted for devising a system of latitude and longitude, and for being the first known to have calculated the size of the Earth within a remarkable 0.5 percent accuracy. He prepared one of the earliest maps of the known world.
– Homer Hoyt – an economist who studied housing data for 142 American cities, presented his sector model of urban land use in 1939. he maintained that high-rent residential districts were instrumental in shaping the land-use structure of the city. Because these areas were reinforced by transportation routes, the pattern of their development was one of sectors or wedges, not concentric zones.
– Ellsworth Huntington – one of the best known U.S. proponents of Ratzel’s ideas; argued that climate was a major determinant of civilization; according to him climate of maritime northwestern Europe produced greater human efficiency as measured by better health conditions, lower death rates, and higher standards of living.
– Halford John Mackinder – proposed the heartland theory in the early twentieth century based on environmental determinism, the heartland theory addresses the balance of power in the world and, in particular, the possibility of world conquest based on natural habitat advantage. It held that the Eurasian continent was the most likely base from which to launch a successful campaign for world conquest.
– Thomas Robert Malthus – English economist and cleric was the most famous pioneer observer of population growth with the publishing in 1798 of An Essay on the Principle of Population, known as the “dismal essay.” He believed that the human ability to multiply far exceeds our ability to increase food production. He maintained that “a strong and constantly operating check on population” will necessarily act as a natural control on numbers. He regarded famine, disease, and war as the inevitable outcome of the human population’s outstripping the food supply.
– George Perkins Marsh – in 1864 he wrote a treatise entitled Man and Nature, or Physical Geography as Modified by Human Action. As the first work to suggest that human beings are significant agents of environmental change, it is considered one of the most important advances in geography, ecology, and resource management in the nineteenth century; major influence on U.S. environmentalism.
– Ptolemy – main work is his Geographia. This too is a compilation of what was known about the world’s geography in the Roman Empire during his time; devised and provided instructions on how to create maps both of the whole inhabited world and of the Roman provinces.
– Friedrich Ratzel – a German trained in Biology and Chemistry who originated geopolitical theory in the late 1800’s; greatly influenced by the theories of social Darwinism. He stated seven laws of state growth; the model portrays the state as behaving like a biological organism; thus, its growth and change are seen as “natural” and inevitable; pioneered the belief of environmental determinism.
– Carl Ritter – he is considered one of the founders of modern geography; In his view, “geography was a kind of physiology and comparative anatomy of the earth: rivers, mountains, glaciers, &c., were so many distinct organs, each with its own appropriate functions; and, as his physical frame is the basis of the man, determinative to a large extent of his life, so the structure of each country is a leading element in the historic progress of the nation;” His 20-volumne Erdkunde was a monumental work of comparison and classification; He and von Humboldt urged human geographers to adopt the methods of scientific inquiry used by natural scientists.
W. W. Rostow – in 1960 proposed a widely cited model for economic advancement. Generalizing on the “sweep of modern history,” he theorized that alldeveloping economies may pass through five successive stages of growth and advancement.
– Carl Sauer – conducted pioneering research on the origins and dispersal of plant and animal domestication, was one of the first to propose that the process of domestication was independently invented at many different times and locations. He believed that domestication did not develop in response to hunger. He maintained that necessity was not the mother of agricultural invention, because starving people must spend every waking hour searching for food and have no time to devote to the centuries of leisurely experimentation required to domesticate plants.
– Johann Heinrich von Thunen – German scholar-farmer who developed the core-periphery model in the nineteenth century (economic determinism). In his model he proposed an “isolated state” that had no trade connections with the outside world; possessed only one market, located centrally in the state; and had uniform soil, climate, and level terrain throughout. He created this model to study the influence of distance from market and the concurrent transport costs on the type and intensity of agriculture.

 

– Alfred Weber – German geographer who was a major theorist of industrial location. He devised a model of how to understand industrial locations in regard to several factors, including labor supply, markets, resource location, and transpiration.

I have an interest in computers and softwares. I have always wanted to know how computer programming, C++ in specific, works. I think that knowing how to make a software would be very useful for me, as I plan on going in a heavy technology based career. Also it interests me a lot. Knowing how to make programs can be very convenient, as I would be able to design a program to my need if I really need to, instead of going out and buying one. Also if I plan on going in a career that includes VFX, knowing computer programming would be very helpful.

 

Big Question: How can I use C++ programming to help me in AP Psychology?

 

Sub Questions:

– What is C++?

– Where/Why is it used?

– Why do I want to learn it?

– How can I use to teach me about AP Psychology?

– What software to use to do C++?

– What software to use to make the IPod interface?

– How can I use C++ to program an Iphone app?

Reflection

1) I think that Step 6 was the most important part of the entire project as if students do not reflect back on what they have done in their project, they are tend to make the same mistakes again. Going back at each step and reflecting back on them gives the student a better understanding on whether or not that step was useful, or how did it help him/her? When I finished writing my reflection I had a better understanding on each step and its significance towards me.

 

2) WordPress Link: https://psproduktions.wordpress.com/category/education/advanced-technology/physics-b/

 

3) Simple: I think I should get a 4 in this category as my presentation had an obvious core message, and my points were pretty clear.

Unexpected: I think I should get a 4 in this category, as I think I had a good hook asking everyone about the exact number of speed light.

Credible: I think I should get a 4 here as in my presentation, I showed everyone the YouTube video from where my video was inspired from. The YouTube video also talked about different scientists in some labs working on this project.

Concrete: I think I deserve a 3 in this place as my presentation wasn’t as clear as it could have been.

Emotional: I think that I should get a 4 here, as I think that showing videos and images with different kind of effects in them engaged the audience’s attention.

Story: I think I deserve a 3 here as my story wasn’t very engaging. It did the job, but now at its highest level like many of other peers did.

Overall Presentation: I should get a 2 here as the duration of my presentation exceeded the time limit we had to present it.

Gesture and Voices:  I think I should get a 3 here as I was a bit nervous and stammered about while presenting. I should have been more loose and confident.

 

4) Task 1: I have made a 30 seconds video using Autodesk 3DS Max and Adobe After Effects. I portrayed 7 different significant effects in it. When I started this project I didn’t know any of them, but using online tutorials I learned how to make them.

Task 2: I had 5 useful resources for my project. They were:

1) Video Copilot

2) YouTube

3) TraptCG

4) TurboSquid

5) Escape Studios

Videocopilot has always been helpful to me. I was have been using it for years to train myself in After Effects. I used it mostly for my After Effects issues. This website showed me how to create an Earth in After Effects.

YouTube is a great help for every kind of thing. I used it for learning how to make an asteroid in 3DS Max. As making space object was very new to me, I needed to look up a lot of things in order to finish my video.

I used TraptCG to learn how to make the worm hole machines. They have some good tutorials over there about 3DS Max and other useful software’s.

I used TurboSquid to download a model of the space ship used in my video. As my skill aren’t that advanced in 3D modelling, and as I didn’t have enough time to learn some advanced 3D modelling, I downloaded a free spaceship model from the Tirbosquid.com and textured it my way to make it look a bit better.

I used Escape Studios to learn about how to make the inside of the worm hole that was in my video.

Task 3: This project was very teaching to me. I learned a lot of interesting and useful effects that I probably would have never learned until a long time ahead in my life. I designed a lot of stuff on my own also that I thought I was nowhere capable of designing all on my own. So this project really enhanced my skills in After Effects and 3DS Max.

Task 4: Reply to Omar’s page: This page clearly shows that you have finished all your work on time and with your up most efforts. It is clear that spend a lot of time doing your work for this project. Everything is so organized. it’s amazing. It is clear that you did some serious research on Blender, you clearly answered all of your question from Step 1 and resolved all the issues you had with Blender. Great work Omar. Your entire project is really impressive and inspiring.

Reply to Nikki’s page: Great job Nikki. Your written work looks very neat and organized. I really like your Step 5. You planned everything in exact duration and before even giving your presentation, you had a rough idea of how long will your presentation be. That was really amazing. I also liked how you connected you Flash to the Spanish class by making floor layout in it. Overall, you presentation and your written work is awesome.

 

5) Yes, I showed evidence of my project in my presentation. I had the video that I made, the vide that inspired to research this topic, and 2 of the websites from where I looked at some online tutorials for some effects. I would be happy to show this to my teachers and/or prospective colleges.

 

6) Yes this project was definitely very beneficial for me. I can say that as I learned a lot of new techniques and ways to achieve an effect in the 2 programs I used for this project. I always had difficulty with modelling and camera work, but due to the work I did in this project regarding modelling and camera work, I am now much more familiar and comfortable with them. The most confusing part about this project for me was to composite my 3D models into After Effects. I had to plan out the camera movement in 3DS Max for every scene and design my space environment accordingly in After Effects.

 

7) Although I would love to do a project like this again. I think maybe next time we could try something else. For instance, maybe instead of a student picking a program for himself, a peer or a friend gives him a program to learn that would be completely new to him and would also challenge him/her.

 

8) I think the best way for me to improve my project for next time, would be to make it more engaging for the audience while presenting and to practice and plan more before presenting. This would lose me the stammers and nervousness while I’ll be presenting.

 

9) Reply to Omar’s page: This page clearly shows that you have finished all your work on time and with your up most efforts. It is clear that spend a lot of time doing your work for this project. Everything is so organized. it’s amazing.

Step 6

Going through all the 5 steps for this project wasn’t very easy. It was very confusing at a lot of times. However, by the time everything was finished, all that work seemed to look less complicated. Although it was hard to accomplished I was quite happy with how my video turned out to be. During Step 1, we had to write a little bit about in what class are we going to use this video of ours. We also had to write some questions that we would find the answers of during the entire project duration. This step was helpful to me in organizing my weaknesses and strong areas regarding the topic I was researching. In Step 2, we would give source, human or virtual, to whom we could refer to for information on our topic. This step helped in organizing my sources, it also gave me an idea of whom to go to when confused. In Step 3, we had to list myriad URL’s or interviews from which I got my information from. The links helped me just as a guiding. This step was just for students to list mostly all the sites from where they are getting their info from. In Step 4, we had to pick some specific URL’s form step 3 that we actually used much more intensely compared to the other links. This step mostly acted like a work cited page for me. Also, it was a good place to keep my important links in so that I can go back to them if I needed to have another look. For Step 5, we had to take all the steps we have done so far including our finished final video and post them on our website. We also had to post a link to our website on Moodle. We also had to write a small outline script of how we are planning to give our presentation. This step was helpful to me as it helped to plan for my presentation beforehand. Before giving my presentation I showed my video to some of the people in my group for feedback, they gave me some suggestions on how I could better portray a scene in my video. After their suggestion,  re-edit some parts of my video and compared them to the original one. The new did look better. I use technology in mostly all my classes, either for projects or for taking notes. I think I did good in trying to use technology in mostly all of my classes. The video that I made explains a topic of Physics. If I show that video of mine, while narrating to my Physics class, I think they would understand the concept much better compared to hoe much they would understand If I just talk about without any visual. I think that I did achieve my goal in using technology in other classes of mine. Although, my technology did not help enhance my school or society but I think it did help in adding a new angle to how people look at their everyday stuff. As all the students of our Advanced Technology class has proved in their presentation, technology is a tool so powerful that it could completely revolutionize a society if used in the proper way. “My technology” helped in getting a better understanding on a topic of Physics. It didn’t enhance the society in many useful ways, but it helped me, my friends and  my peers get a better understanding of Physics.

Step 5

Breaking The Speed of Light

Beginning: Start off with asking my audience about “what the speed of light is?”

Part 1: My story comes in. “I thought of doing this project for explaining how the speed of light works, but then I ended up doing a project on how scientists are trying to break the speed of light.” PLAY the video that inspired me to change my research topic.

Part 2: After the video, I talk about how I tried to make my own version of how scientists were trying to break the speed of light. PLAY my video.

Part 3: Explain what programs I used to make the software, After Effects and 3DS Max. I introduce them to it’s interface. Also show some examples of where else has are the software used.
End: Talk about what websites are used mostly to guide myself through the process of making all the CGI elements in my video.

Fini.

Haris – Personal Interview

It would be really exciting to see mankind make warm holes to travel through galaxies. However, before doing something like that we would also have to make sure if it’s safe for the people. I mean what guarantees that of a person goes through the worm hole he won’t be deformed

Telegraph.co.uk

This article talks about how the scientists can say that speed of light can be broken, after testing and getting the results of neutrino experiment. This gives the information that I could make in After Effects to show my point.
