How was the product made ?

In humanities we first leant how about triptychs what they were and what they represent .Then we learnt about renaissance innovations and how they changed the world .We had to take notes to use for the triptychs .After all that we begun working on our triptychs .

The triptych had to be based on one of the important renaissance innovations .I choose medical innovations because I had a lot of notes on it in Craft .The triptych had to represent the innovation during the renaissance in the left panel ,the innovation now ,and the old tradition way of the innovation .

I started We first went to google earth to looked for renaissance photo that somewhat resembles our faces .Then I used superimpose(Editing/photoshop app) to photoshop my face on

What did I take away from the this project ?
-I learnt how to use superimpose
-I learnt more about the renaissance
-I learnt how innovations from the renaissance change the way we live today

Innovations from Europe and Asia revolutionized the world by promoting humanism Traditional ideas on medicine and medical knowledge that people had before the Renaissance include superstition, religion ,and herbal remedies .Many  of their cures were based on superstition and religion with no actual evidence .People in the Middle Ages also lacked important medical knowledge like hygiene .Because of that people in the Middle Ages lived relatively short lives riddled with diseases .In addition quality of medical practitioners were poor and people rarely saw a doctor .Part of the reason was because of the Church’s control of medical training Physicians and medical students .They tried to make new discoveries that fit into the older theories which were mostly incorrect .Because of that medicinal innovations barely improved during the Middle Ages . New ideas medical in the Renaissance changed the Renaissance world by helping people during the renaissance prove that the research is based on facts and evidence instead of superstition .Sparking more scientific innovations and ideas that would change the world .Thse new  that during the Islamic Golden Age /renaissance several medical innovations emerged in the Islamic world .Hopitals amplify the effectiveness of providing medical services for people ,saving many lives and changing the world . Because of the microscope ,researchers were able to describe the body at the microscopic level .For example they could characterise blood and cellular structures with clarity at higher magnification .The  medical knowledge enabled future innovations that were only made possible by the newly discovered medical knowledge . Ideas in the renaissance changed the world by sparking new innovations we use today .These ideas also promote humanism the idea that humans should embrace human achievements in education,classical arts,literature and science .Because of that intellectual movement ,new concepts and innovations that were against old traditions weren’t just shoved away .The Middle Ages didn’t see much growth in medical knowledge because they denied new concepts that didn’t fit into old traditions .Less superstition led research and experimentation also led to new treatments, surgical techniques, and medicines. With these advances, the average lifespan of people began to increase, and diseases that were once fatal now had more options for treatment and prevention. All these achievements marked a major turning point in medical history and changed the way people thought about and interacted with the world.


From draft triptych :






6 Things you may not know about snowboarding


1)Snowboarding was inspired other sports

Moder snowboarding was created in the 1960s by Sherman Poppen, who developed a toy for his children by combining two skis together .
He also added a rope so they could control the board when going downhill .
Over the next decade, Poppen and a manufacturer soldmore than a million snuffers.
In 1977, Jake Burton impressed the crowd with bindings he used to secure his feet on the board at a snuffing competition .
In that same year he founded burton snowboards ,which is now one of the first and most popular snowboard brands .

2) Some resorts used to banned snowboarding

Most North American ski resorts banned snowboarding in the 1980s because of insurance and liability.
They also didn’t have the best reputation because a ski patrol worker stated on TV “They’re endangering the public and possibly themselves!” At least the sport was more accepted in Europe.
However, as snowboarding gained popularity, so did its reputation, and it was no longer banned.


3) There are risk involved in snowboarding 

The majority of snowboarders who are injured are beginners .
Beginners have an increased risk of fractures and injures because they fall frequently .
A lot of snowboarders get injured because they constantly have to use every muscle in their body to shift weigh, turn, stop, and balance
But compared to skiers, snowboarders are 50% -70% more likely to get injured, but less likely to die .


4) The tallest mountain to go snowboarding 

With an elevation of 18,360 feet, Jade Dragon Snow Mountain is the tallest snow mountain in the world to snowboard on.
There is a cable way up to the peak, which is over 4500m high. There are also many old thousand-year glaciers.
It is easy to see why it is so popular with skiers and snowboarders.


5) Richest place to go snowboarding


Besides being one of the most expensive snowboarding destinations in Switzerland, Gstaad also boasts 220km of trails and 57 lifts, so you can call it a snowboarder’s paradise.
It also has some of the finest shopping in Switzerland, five-star hotels, and restaurants.


6) Most influential snowboarders in the world 

Jake Burton ,Shawn White ,and Terje Hakonsen

The company was founded by Jake Burton, who was inspired by snowboarders and built the snowboard we know today. As of 2018, Burton accounts for about 32% of snowboard sales worldwide.

Snowboarder Shaun White holds the world record for the most X Games gold medals and Olympic gold medals.

While Terje never officially retired, it was rare to see him compete after 1990. He now records films and works for sponsors.

Leaning Portolio

Hi everyone ,my name is Claire and I am a PLP learner .

While doing these activities in PLP I have learnt a lot about myself as a PLP learner .These activities/projects include Laptop Memoji ,User Manual ,Dream board, Bucket list and digital selfie .

These activities help identifying who I am and things I like .And helped me build my tech skills.

Laptop Memoji :This helped me practice my keynote skills that would be very important later on .An example being using instant alpha to remove the background of a photo making it transparent .We used this skill to make stickers for our laptop .

User Manual :This helped me understand myself a bit better .By writing about myself in third person and writing sort of a guide to using me .I identified and remembered a lot of things about myself like my likes and dislikes .I also learnt how to use pages better.

Dreamboard :This identify what I daydream about and what I want to do in the future .And the other activities with the dream-board helped me find set goals to achieving my big dream .I have even started to work towards my goal because of this activity .

Bucket list : In this activity we made a list of want we want to do in our lives before we die .And it makes me think more about the stuff i could do in my lifetime .And its like making dreams come to reality because some of the things on my list are crazy.

Digital selfie :This project helped me understand my ipad camera more .I now know how to make things brighter and use photo timer .
