Our main topics were how to manage time beneficially and wisely. Our group created a video that clearly demonstrated about a good and bad example of time management because in my perspective the time management was the major problem with the group. Often time, some of the group members weren’t really staying on task and let others do all the work for them. It was really terrible and I don’t really want this to happen again. Thus, my group created a video that also explains about good and bad teamwork and time management.
In our video, we gave an example that defines a positive and negative behavior during the meeting with the team. The setting of our video was a house, where the team usually had meeting and discussion about the slogan and product. Thus, our group act out with a different attitude and pretend to have a discussion about deciding the slogan. Riko and Ji Yeon, who is my group act out the people who weren’t staying on task and keep on playing. I act out the person who was doing all the work and telling them to stay on task. In our good example, we mostly eye contact with each other and everyone stayed on task. Often time, they expressed their own idea and perspective to help the teammates. In our bad example, we never eye contact with each other and only one person stayed on task doing all the work for them, which is unfair. Also, they were ignoring and being disrespectful to their own team. One of them was turning on a song, another one was looking at Instagram with the phone, the other one was trying to tell everyone that we should do work, not play. I think our video will help grade 6 to do well on Dragon Apprentice.
When I was grade 6, doing Dragon Apprentice, I had the same problem with my group. Our group was really bad at time management that for 3 hours, we only practiced our presentation twice. Some of my group members were accessing Facebook, Instagram, Skype and other social media things that distracted from doing work. Even though the presentation was due tomorrow, we were being so lazy that we only practiced twice and went back to home. For 4 hours, we didn’t manage our time wisely and waste a lot of time. Especially me, because I actually skipped the academy and went there to do the presentation and did nothing at there for 4 hours. From this experience, I noticed that the time management is very important when we are cooperating as a team. Also, I wished that the grade 6 doesn’t make any mistake like our team and manage their time carefully and use it wisely.
