US History Semester 1 Reflection
In US history we learn on a online program called Edgenuity, we learn about different historical time periods such as the dark ages and WW1. we also watch movies on different historical events, we take notes while watching the movie. This is valuable for my future because it is allowing me to practice my note taking skills and helping me develop a multitasking skill.
The major project we did was the World Series of Innovation, In this project we designed a company that distributed drones to consumers in rural areas that could not reach wifi signals, We would have drones delivered to the countries in need of internet the drones would have a router of some sort transmitting wifi signals they would be able to connect their devices to the drone their would be multiple drones so one drone could charge up and set off again and then the other drone takes its place. These drones will be used something like hotspots. We first started brainstorming ideas and we came up with this one, we went on to do research and started locating the pros and cons of the idea. Eventually we decided this was the idea we were going for and got it done. This project showed me that i can be very creative, that i can't let a lot of work overwhelm me i have to keep pushing and get it done
In this course the two SLO’s i believe i demonstrated were “Self Directed learner who communicates effectively” and “Applying technological skills for the 21st century” I used these by communicating effectively with my partner and getting the project done i also used 21st century skills by introducing drones into our project, using a lot of technological skills. I think i could have been more directive with my partner instead of doing all the work i should have communicated more effectively.
I think the two most important things i have learned in US history this year have been how to learn independently and learn how to use templates alot better. Learning independently will help me in the future because there's not always gonna be someone there to help you, you need to learn how to do things on your own and get the job done. Knowing how to use templates are crucial in education because almost every assignment has a template this class has shown me how to use them to the fullest and these skills will help me succeed in the future
