At the beginning of the year I didn’t Know if I wanted to do PLP next year because I didn’t know if it was for me. But I realized that I like learning using the iPads rather then paper and pencil. The first things I learned about were difficult and confusing at the beginning because I didn’t know how to handle basecamp or showbie but I got then I got the hang of it.
I showed my communicating skill this year by talking to new people in groups, and one example is at the beginning of the year we had the keynote guided tour and we had to talk to who ever came to are station and I really dont like talking to new people so that is also why I put my communicating skill at a two on the learning plan. Another example of me doing this is in are ad project when we had to talk to the business Owner about what ad they wanted. Also in this project I communicated with my group and expressed my ideas with them. So I think i might want to change my communicating skill to one higher level.
I showed my creative thinking skill by creating so many new things that I never thought I would create but I did. An example is when I created me out of pipe cleaners and a binder clip on a skate board for the keynote presentation. Some other examples are: creating different ads for the Local Lift. Also when we did the outsiders tableau when we had to recreate a scene from the outsiders book. Last one is when we did instant challenges for DI, and had to make different things from random items. Some of them were hard to complete and we ran into problems like the tower falling over the boat sunk but now we know the problems and not to do that design for next time. I think that I would keep my skill level the same or maybe bump it down one.
Personal Awareness and Responsibility
I showed personal awareness and responsibility by stopping my self and thinking before I say and or do something that I would regret later. I can’t think of any examples. I used personal awareness by not doing to much work in one sitting and taking small little breaks through out the day to stay calm and not get overwhelmed. I also made sure to get my work in on time so I wouldn’t get stressed or overwhelmed with to much work. I think that I would keep my profile at the same level because I’m doing just that.
I try contribute to my group the best I can some examples are: during the ad project I contributed my ideas and designs to the group and in the end the ad turned out great but we did not get a response from back from the Local Lift. Another example is during Scimatics when me, Jackson and Makia made a really good board game and I contributed by helping colouring in the game board game and bring some lights for the edge of the board. Although I could of contributed to the game rules more because the game was not the best playing wise because we didn’t put a lot of time into the rules and i think that is partly my fault because I could’ve made the rules longer and better.
Critical and Reflective Thinking
I can use evidence to make decisions and I showed that this term when we did the ad project and i did that by making small or big changes to my ad by using Mr Hepburns advise. I also showed reflective any time I did revisions and example is when Ms Willemse gave me feed back on my Hertzog blog post I made a whole new blog post because I got everything wrong on my first one and instead of just leaving it be actually did it. I think I would leave the profile the same because I already changed it throughout the year because I think that I advanced up to that profile.
Positive personal and cultural Identify
I showed my that I can describe the different aspects of my identity and I showed that by trying my best in all of the world view assignments but I did run into some problems in the beginning because I was confused what world view was because I hadn’t talked about it that much but then it came all back to me later on. I also got confused when we had to link are own personal world view with the outsiders. I think I would keep my profile the same because I already moved it up in this term and the next one seems a little bit to hard for me.
Social Awareness and Responsibility
I can interact with other people and the environment And I showed that every time I work with a group some examples are: The ad project I worked well with my group to make a ad. In DI I’m working well with my group and contributing by doing research and telling them my ideas. I think that when I get into a new group straight from the beginning I should start contributing More and sharing my ideas. I think that I’m going to keep the profile the same because it fits me.
