|Poster for our project|
Overall, I feel the presentation went well, we may have rushed it, but we were able to get everyone's attention on the cause and get our ideas across. After my group and I presented, we did not get feedback from our peers since it had to be a quick transition due to the amount of people presenting and the amount of time. However, the professor said it was a great-looking website, and it was a good project in general. Nonetheless, if I were to present this same objective again, I would definitely change it up a bit. I would make it more creative, find more ways in which people can help, and make a blog or an additional social networking site in order for people to gain information about our project.
This week's "art word of the week" I believe would be design or composition. According to Schirrmacher and Fox (2009), design or composition "is the overall mark of success, the standard of achievement..." (p. 142). I believe these words fit perfectly with our presentation since our design and layout of our website was used to catch the reader's attention.
I believe that doing a project similar to this one would be interesting for children to try out. Not necessarily going into full detail, but getting an idea that is really bothering them and find a way to share it to the class. It gives children the ability to think freely and come up with a creative way to share the class what are their thoughts and feelings towards some issues in the classroom and what peers and teachers can do differently to support.
