“How can I creatively communicate who I am”, that was what was asked of us. At the start, we got sticky notes and wrote down our “Need to Knows”, then, we we had to think of tree things about us using pictures. Next, we worked on a Memoji laptop, we used stickers on a laptop to show who we were. Then, we made a user Manuel like what an iPad would have, but as if we were the product. We did gallery walks and and 1 on 1 presentations to take critique and what we should go back and add. We focused on the PBL Gold Standerd throughout this project
Then, to finish it all off, we got into small groups of 3 to present our memoji and user Manuel.
What i learned during this project is how to make an image transparent so i can put it on my memoji laptop and some patience Because I couldn’t get some of the apps to work properly. And here is, my User Manuel…..

Congratulations on your new student Ben Yerxa 3.8, commonly referred to as Ben.
Your new student comes with the following:
.Knowledge of sports
.Lots of hats
.no money whatsoever
Before using Ben, you must understand that the hats he has, are not a waste of money, they are part of a collection. Next, you must know a bit about sports, if you do not know at least 2 things about sports or Ben will get very frustrated. ⚠️WARNING⚠️ DO NOT STEAL BENS HAT, DEVICE WILL MALFUNCTION!
Ben is accessible most of the time. The only time that Ben is not accessible is during a Milwaukee Brewers playoffs game (unless you want to watch it with him 😉). Yerxa 3.8 is found mostly found at Lids or if Lids is closed, he is in his room ordering hats online. During school hours, Ben can be contacted via firstname.lastname@example.org or via i message. After school, Ben can be contacted via his instagram account (@b.yerx38). If he is not responding, please do not spam with text or call or the device will break Down.
Yerxa 3.8 has 4 settings
- Watching the Brewers
- Collecting hats
- Normal person
- Sport mode
Setting 1: watching the brewers
When in watching the Brewers mode, Ben does not want to be bothered especially if they are losing. If spoken to while watching the brewers, you will be ignored or asked to go away. However, if you are watching the game WITH Ben, that is a different story, he will be fine with a bit of conversation as long as you know that he is trying to watch the game.
Setting 2: collecting hats
When Ben is collecting hats he is often in his room trying to decide what hat to get, this process could take up to a month. Yerxa 3.8 mostly collects hats from MiLB teams such as the Hillsboro hops, Tacoma rainiers, cola fireflies, Clinton lumber kings, West Virginia power etc. Yerxa 3.8 sometimes will get a hat from a pro team but he mainly stick with minor league teams.
Setting 3: normal person
When yerxa 3.8 is in this mode, he is just a regular human being, he’s not collecting hats, he’s not watching the brewers, and he’s not going on a random rant about the birds aren’t real campaign. You can talk to him, text him, go to the gas station and get a way over priced soda pop. When in this mode, he is just like me and you,,.. well, most of the time.
Setting 4. Sport mode
When yerxa 3.8 is in this mode, he of course, is playing sports. There’s many different levels to sport mode.
- School yard. School yard sports mode is just like normal mode, but while playing sports. It’s not that competitive and is just for fun.
- With friends. When in with friends sport mode, the level of competitiveness (made up word by Yerxa 3.8) goes a bit up. This mode is enhanced in games of mini hockey.
- League. The League sports setting is really competitive, its is enhanced before, during, and after a league hockey game. In this mode, yerxa 3.8 is locked in and focused on his upcoming game.
