Essential Questions by mindmap


This is a picture of my mindmap which is my essential questions which leads to my solution. From the main title, there are 2 routes. I started off by making the left one, but then I decided to make another one as the first one was not that good. The red route is the one that leads to my solution.

Selecting my EQs

Ranks
1. Does the elderly feel depressed or jealous when they see the younger generation?
2. Does the elderly feel jealous of not knowing how to use technology?
3. Does the elderly think that they are useless to the community?

Now lets give a round of a claus to the top ranking EQs. (Claps)
The first ranking is that elderly may be jealous that we youngsters are young and lively and get torun around.
The second ranking is that they always hear that technology lets us live more comfortably, but theydo not know how to use technology or know any form of it.
The third ranking is that elderly may think that they are too old to do anything.

Personal Reflection (NEWater visit)

We went to the Newater Plant. It was exactly the same as the trip there when I was in Primary 6. So almost everything was something I knew, except some things which I had forgotten. Lets act as if today is my first time there.

I learned that there are the "4 national taps". They stand for water catchment, imported water, desalinated water and recycled water. They help to maintain the water needed in Singapore. NEWater is too clean to be drank, so it is used mainly for industrial purposes (90%). The remaining 10% is put into thee reservoir to mix with the other water for minerals. NEWater is a treatment plant that is a very famous one among the world. We should never ever waste water as it is very precious. Water is never sufficient, so we must use them wisely. The NEWater uses some strong light to kill any remaining bacteria that might have passed through. Rather be safe than sorry. I find that our pooped water actually could turn into ultra clean. I can only use the amount of water that is necessary to conserve water and not litter to not pollute the water.

Bad design

I am going to show a video of a bad design of a thumb drive. What is happening is that the thumb drive is too big so 2 things cannot be both plugged into the computer together. video

I suggest thumb drives should be smaller to fit into the laptop.

Understanding 'Research' (part 1)

To me research is finding out information on a particular subject through all sorts of ways like reading books, going to internet or others. Research is very important as it helps us to find out information for our project or presentation or other stuff. Researching is important to scientist too for them to discover new things. We can make a good research by finding information from various number of sources to ensure that the information is reliable.

ADMT Lesson 1:Personal Reflection

To me, ADMT is art where by you use technology. ADMT is important as it gives us "life" into reality. The skills that I want to learn in ADMT is sketching well enough to be lively and nice. This is the picture I sketched. It would probably look like this without ADMT.


The picture is a plain coconut tree. there is no amusement in it, no"liveliness".
