What did you do? Summarize what you did. Be specific (this needs to be a paragraph).
First I jotted some ideas down that I possibly be writing about. Then I narrowed my ideas to one that I would base my topic on. I then was assigned to make an easy and clear procedure that people can follow. I also had to list the ingredients and tools needed to do this task. Afterwards I combined my ingredients, tools, procedure, and tips together to make a rough-draft paragraph with the helps of what I call “connectors.” Ex: First, Second, Third, Lastly, and so on.
Mr. Appino gave us the option to either do a video, snapshot, or snapguide, and I chose the snapguide since I think it is more convenient and neat. I then created a snapguide account and finish my snapguide over the weekends. It’s quite simple, its just like taking a photo and there’s a place at the bottom for a caption so you can explain what you are doing or why. Instead of adding picture you could also record videos and paste them in as well. After letting few people read and revise my snapguide I published it. I know that not a lot of people know snapguide so I decided to embed the narrow version of snapguide in my blog. Word of advice you have to make a snapguide on an apple device if you use the computer you can only view snap guides or log onto your account not make one.
Analyze your learning (this needs to be a paragraph):
What did you do well?
I think my procedure was very precise and easy to follow. Sharing my procedure to many of my family members, I saw that there was no hesitation of making a replica of this concoction that I recently showed them with nothing else but my procedure. And in a matter of fact I didn’t lend them a hand but just read my procedure out loud to them.
What was challenging?
I think the toughest challenge I had to face in this unit was actually one of the simplest for other people; choosing the topic to write about. This was tricky for me since I didn’t know what topic people would be interested in doing, and the one’s I was thinking about, someone else already choose to do it. Making my decision was hard since I had to keep the audience, me, and others in mind. Me because some topics that I would like to teach about I’m not an expert on it or I am not exactly sure about what I should do or not do. So I had to put a lot of thinking on choosing the perfect topic to write about.
What could you improve? Identify 2-3 areas that you could improve on.
I think an area for improvement is that I should have listed my ingredients rather than just taking a picture of them; some people may not be familiar with these equipment or ingredients shown. I should have change the format of my unit slide to the beginning. So it can be more convenient for my audience to know how much they need rather than having them to buy more than they need or less.
Learn (this needs to a paragraph)
What did you learn from this learning activity? (Be specific with examples).
Absorbing everything I did in this “ How to,” section I have learnt several things. I have learned how to make a snapguide and that it requires an apple device to create one. Writing a hook ( it’s in the beginning of the paragraph) is very important since that is what lures the audience in. I also picked up how to embed a snapguide in your blog and that patients helps you in this section. If you observe my blog you would see the style of my blog is a bit uncommon that others since it’s slim. If yours is also like that you should choose the narrow version. If you want to embed a snapguide to a blog you just click the embed button down below and copy the link or text they give you. You have to let it load for a while since in the beginning it looks a bit abstract but if you refresh several times it will look normal again. Common mistake that everyone makes is that when you paste the url in you have to change the option from visual to text. This just shows me that a small unit like this one can really show my mind a new perspective it never seen.
