Holiday work - Part 3: Tools to be learnt in Semester 2

There are primarily 2 key software tools that you would be learning in Semester 2, namely:
  • Phun
  • Google SketchUp
Please do try to self-learn the basics of the 2 software tools above. For Phun, there are tutorials already done up on their website. Please do have a look at them. You might also be able to pick up some completed examples from YouTube. For SketchUp, there are even more resources available for you. You might want to try to download some free video podcasts from your iTunes, or watch some tutorial videoclips from the SketchUp website, or to look at other tutorials done by other users on YouTube...the choice is really yours.

Submission:
Please do up a simple room or layout space that shows how you would consider planning to furnish a room so that they are more elderly-friendly. Do explain your submissions with some texts to explain. Submission deadline for this is on the 21st June 2010. Please name your files as follows:

SST_ADMT_ElderlyChallenge_YourClass_IndexNo_YourName.skp
(e.g. SST_ADMT_ElderlyChallenge_S104_07_TanAhKow.skp)

Holiday work - Part 2: Deepening your learning experiences

As part of your research into understanding the elderly, you are tasked to also take video clips, photographs, or any other forms of recordable media to show how the elderly cope with their daily routines. These could include, but not necessarily limited to, every day activities such as: cooking a simple meal, pouring water from a flask, going to the market to buy groceries, going down the stairs, exercising, etc.

As a follow up, each one of you would do a podcast or a writeup of your observations and interviews with the elderly, caretaker, nurses or anyone who work with the elderly. Find out from them what are the problems that the elderly faces. Look for opportunities to observe and interview them such as at the senior citizens corners, void decks, hawker centers, etc.

Note that you are highly encouraged to select a range of elderly folks to observe so as to give you a broader perspective of them.

Submission:
You are to post your work on your personal ADMT blog every Wednesday of the week during the June holidays. (2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd June 2010). Name your post: Elderly Challenge - Observation 1, Elderly Challenge - Observation 2, etc. You are also tasked to go to other students’ personal ADMT Blog to comment on their posts.

Holiday work - Part 1: Understanding the ‘The Elderly Challenge’

For your ADMT individual coursework in Semester 2 on the topic of ‘The Elderly Challenge’, you would be tasked to get a better understanding of the local context of the situation/challenge. A reading on the report done by the 'Committee on Ageing Issues (CAI)' is compulsory for you. The link to the report is here:
http://bit.ly/aKVZZC

Submission:
The following are guiding questions that may enable you to understand the report better. Please answer them in your own ADMT blogs, and post their links into the ‘Comments’ section of this post. You are to complete this by the 19th June 2010.

Animation - Story Creation (7th April 2010)

Each student is to come up with 3 stories.
Bring the hardcopy of the stories for discussion during the next lesson, 8th April 2010.

Some things that you might want to take note of are:

* Use the research information that you and your group have collated earlier in Term 1 to come out with some initial story ideas/seeds
* Do be mindful of your 5W+1H's (Who, What, Where, When, Why, How). For eg, who is your target audience, what is the message that you want to deliver, when would be an appropriate time for your clip to be shown, why do you think your clip would be most effective, etc
* The 4 key structures of a story, as mentioned in the last session on creating a story:
o PREMISE: (5W+1H, Protagonists, Antagonists, Goals)
o CONFLICT: Goals, Opposing Attributes, the Antagonists (Others, Self, the surrounding Environment)
o Crisis: Height of Conflict, Important Decision

ADMT Lesson 1 Environment - Zhang Yifan

People are producing too much waste! Plastic bags, bones Co2, carbon-monoxide and other greenhouse gases, these are ingredients to erths destruction! while cars can be made eco-friendly, humans don't we still breathe out Co2 at the same rate....planting trees that collect Co2 can solve the problem of Co2 emmisions, but are we willing to do it? Recycling is another option, however, all these eco-friendly options are always crossed out in people's to do list-reusing, reducing, no littering, reduce carbon emmisions and etc. but the ones ticked in most people's list are very simple ones like littering, producing more Co2 and etc. I was thinking of using magnetic motor cars, though prone to breaking, alternate magnets like those made out of steel can be used, or those deep under the sea, which are very durable.

ADMT Lesson 1 Lai Wen Xuan Jeremy

  Will human beings selfish acts bring about the Earth's doom?

  Yes, they will. We are encouraged to use public transport to reduce fuel emissions, but many people still
use private transport as it is more convenient. Then, many other people are also wasting electricity and
producing more greenhouse gases.

    What can we do to save the Earth?

  If we want to save the Earth, we have to start by conserving energy and not wasting it. For example, we should not switch on the lights if we are going into a place for only a short while or switch on the fan instead of the air-conditioner.
We should also make use of the 3 Rs- Reuse, Reduce and Recycle. We should reuse water used for washing food
for watering plants or washing the floors. We can reduce by using less fossil fuels by taking public transport, and
recycle by using unwanted items and make them into new ones that are useful.


Windows 7: Find the right PC for you. Learn more.
Will human beings' selfish acts bring about the Earth's doom?
Yes.If humans continue their foolish ways to pollute the world, soon we will be extinct. Humans are constantly emitting CO2 and thus heating up the world and as most of the adults use their own cars or vehicles because it is more time-efficient and more convenient.But at the same time, the carbon monoxide produced will contribute to the heat trapped in the atmosphere by the "Greenhouse effect" thus this will will cause the currently melting glaciers to melt even more rapidly. Soon, low ground places will be flooded as the world's water level will rise by 2.5%. 

What we can we do to save the Earth?

We can use public transportation  eg.(MRTs and public buses) instead of our own personal vehicles so the carbon monoxide produced will be reduced.We can also use another alternative source of fuel for vehicles which is compressed natural gas(CNG) as it produces lesser carbon monoxide.

ADMT Lesson 1 Environment - Isaac Kua

Will human beings' selfish acts bring about the Earth's doom?


Yes, most of the adults use their own cars or vehicles because it is faster and more convenient. At the same time, the carbon mono oxide produced will contribute to the heat trapped in the atmosphere by the "greenhouse effect", this will will cause the already melting glaciers to melt even more rapidly. Soon, living areas near the sea will be flooded along with other low-lying living areas. Slowly, even small islands like Singapore might be wiped off the face of the map.

What we can we do to save the Earth?

We can use public transport instead of our own personal vehicles so the carbon mono oxide produced will be reduced. We should not waste paper unnecessarily. We should also reduce our use of electricity such as using the fans instead of the air-conditioners, using energy-saving light bulbs and switching them off when not in use.

ADMT Lesson 1 Environment - Matthew Wong

Will humans selfish acts bring about the Earth's doom?
Yes.  if we continue incinerating waste and burning fuels, we will produce lots of carbon dioxide which traps heat causing the ice caps to melt and flood low lying areas.

What can we do to save the Earth?
We can reuse, reduce and recycle instead of throwing our rubbish away and we can use less fuel and electricity.
