This Round 2 is kind of photography round because I got to learn photography from the exploration and multimedia class. Also not just photography, we also learn about the pixar story structure too. For the Pixar story structure we learned about the basic of making the story more clear and good. For the photography, we learned about the triangle exposure. The triangle exposure has shutter speed, ISO, and Aperture. Shutter speed is the length of time the shutter is open to allow light in. ISO is how sensitive your camera to light is. Aperture is the size of opening in the lens through which light enters the camera.
Cambodian Geography Book is an exploration that working on finishing up designing of the book in a software called Indesign. The book spent us 1 years to do the research and the designing. Not just researching but we are going out on a trip to other province to find more information. The Design is fun for me because we get to touch new feature in Photoshop and Indesign a lot. I’m the designer of Takeo province the back cover and the spine. It is really cool for me to create spine because I don’t how to measure the spine so I need to learn hard stuff like get the measurement of the book and also estimate the pages so that it fit the spine. My dream in the future is to be a User Interface Designer and I got to design a lot of graphic for the book.
Multimedia is a lot of things but the most famous one is online archive which is risky to student like us, so Cindy, our facilitator, train us a lot about how to search on the internet safely. After the learning of the Internet Safety. She bring us a new topics “Adobe Software” which some of Liger student know it like me. She doesn’t know much about some of the adobe software so she started to pick some student that know the software clearly to teach the other student in class. After studying Adobe software for one week. We have a homework that required us to us adobe Software to do it and also using our Internet Safety skills to do research about what we want to make. My project is talk about Pixar which is the animation studio. I wonder what they used to make their animation so I made a poster that talk about the software.
In Liger, We have 1 hour everyday to learn literacy. In the class, We have our lovely teacher named Hannah. This year we started with a topic called “Root Words”. Every Week, She will hand us a paper that is about the root words but in different theme. It is called homework packet.
Here is one of the homework packet:
Also not just the homework packet but we also have more reading about some famous people like William Shakespeare, Mahatma Gandhi and etc. Mostly we read all of this in some website that our teacher assigned like Newsela, Readwork, Actively Learning and etc. One of the cool project that I have done is creating a video that talk about a person that we would like to put in an exhibition. After we filmed and edited. We uploaded to Flipgrid. Flipgrid is a website that we can shared our idea and also to make video for your class assignment.
He planned the time for us to study part time. After a taste of it, It seem easy for me. I started to think that I could make something from coding. After a few month of studying I got an idea of making a chrome extension. I started to research about it and code it using my knowledge. The final product is coming soon. In the Future, I have a nice beautiful chrome extension that can help you with your to do list and also save some text or link on the whiteboard.
This is my 3rd year at Liger. All 60 juniors studied the Singapore Math Book. Last year we learned the 4A and the 4B Math Book. And right now we are learning 5A Math Book. Also not just the Math book, our lovely teacher named Samantha give us a hopeful website Khan Academy for more knowledge. Beside Khan Academy she found other Math puzzle or games online to make the class more fun. For this week she have a multiplayer math games for us to compete with each other. It is really fun and I enjoy Math so much.
