I had are some problems while I was working on my project. One of the main problems were that I have in my project is my product. After I have made the product I proceeded to the next stage, which was testing the robot. But when I tested it on the Robotics track it couldn’t read the black line. So I had to find out what the problem was with my robot. It took me about 1 week to find the problem.  First, I checked the electronic circuit by using the DMM (Digital Multi Tester). Then, if I found something wrong I would write down. I solved the problem by replacing the component with a new one and I connected it slowly, so that it would not be damaged. Though there were some problems with my product, I think I have done the best I could with my product because I am very interested in robotics and I like it when I can create new things. I enjoyed spending most of my time making the product. I also have some experience in robotics, which made it easier to make the product. The thing that I have not done so well is my oral task. It is because I spend little time doing it and I don’t concentrate when I am doing it.  I would choose the same topic again for my project because I enjoy robotics and I am involved in competitions at a National level. I really like robotics and I spend most of my day both making and playing with robotics. When I did something about robotics I felt happy and I enjoy doing it.

I will prepare for questions 1,3,4 by:
1. First, I will write the Important point on a small piece of paper

2. Then I will read it until I memories.

3. Last, I will record my voice to improve my pronunciation

I predict my grade will be 6.

Week 5- Application May 2nd- 6thTeacher Notes
ActivitiesI will construct the electronic circuit design on a PCB (Printed Circuit Board) by using one of my robotics software called Eagle.
Standard and Criterion MetCriterion C , D
Completed TaskI have design the PCB in the Eagle software
To Do ListPost the design of the PCB in my blog.
I will explain this procedure of how I will create my model i a blog that I post on my page- So please comment.
I think if you also take pictures as you make it or even think about a video at the end. This would be useful for younger students so that they can understand and get involved in robotics at school.


Week 4- Comprehension: April 25th- 29thTeacher Notes
ActivitiesI need to plan what type of BEAM robot I am going to make. And I will make list of material that I am going to buy to make the robot
Standard and Criterion MetCriterion C,D
Completed TaskI found an article on robotics and I have described, planned and designed what robot I would like to create for my final product. Very interesting plan.

Reflection On Week 1-5

During the past 5 week I have created 2 task on my topic, BEAM Robot. First I researched using the net and found an article that provided background information to help my understanding of the issue related to BEAM Robot.

With this information I created a summary on the topic and posted this on my blog page. This helped my understanding and provided me with information to move to the next stage on blooms.

During the comprehension stage I created my second task post photos and embed a visual snapshot to show the audience my understanding of the topic. We were asked to record our summaries as a video and embed the file into our blog page to demonstrate our oral language skills and ability to master intonation and expression. I found this difficult to do at first but Bibil was able to assist us and I was pleased with the final product.

Now I am preparing for the next stage of blooms "application" and I am deciding how I will design my next task that could include; an interview, a simulation, a presentation using IT tools and illustration.

It's time for me now to plan my next task so please check my blog on friday and pst a comment.
