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’

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.


Importing contacts has never been easier..

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.

Environment- Wei Kang


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

Yes, if we continue to pollute the environment. The Earth will "die". As we burn fossil fuel, carbon dioxide is released into the air and will thicken the atmosphere, causing global warming, leading to the melting of the ice caps, flooding and finally the destruction of man kind and the Earth we know of.
What we can we do to save the Earth? 
We can create electricity using more eco-friendly methods, such as turbines and tidal.We can also follow closely to the three R's- reuse, recycle, reduce.  

ADMT Lesson1 Environment-Roy Chua

If humans continue to waste paper, people have to cut down more oxygen producing trees. If there are not enough trees to produce oxygen, living things around the world will slowly use up the oxygen and everything on Earth will die because of lack of oxygen. We have to save the Earth by conserving our resources and not wasting them. We can conserve electricity so people would not burn fossil fuels to generate electricity by switching off the lights when we are not in a room and we can not waste paper so trees would not be cut down by using both sides of paper instead of using just one side to reduce the amount of paper we use.

ADMT Lesson 1 Environment- Hakeem


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

It will, eventually. Mankind has been emitting harmful gasses through factories, vehicles, the burning of rubbish and so on.

 Human beings also cut down forests for paper which means we have more paper but we compromise on the amount of carbon dioxide in the air. Plats take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen. In the end we will be left with no more forests unless necessary actions are taken. If we have no more trees, we will have less oxygen to breathe and we will die. There will be more carbon dioxide in the air so more heat will be trapped and Earth will get warmer and warmer. Polar ice caps will melt faster and low lying islands will be flooded and sink. Also, when we cut down trees, we expose the soil that it holds and this results in soil erosion, which means that no plant can grow on it.

When factories release harmful gasses and chemicals into the atmosphere, it dissolves into the water droplets and results in acid rain, which can destroy and damage buildings and structures.

Through vehicles, carbon dioxide is released and gathers in the atmosphere. This is a major hazard where there are many cars and people, for example, in China. People, especially, children and the elderly are vulnerable to the carbon dioxide and other harmful gasses which could lead to breathing problems and death. An increase in the amount of carbon dioxide means more heat is trapped and this results in global warming. Polar ice caps will melt faster and low lying islands will be flooded and sink.

What can we do to save the Earth?

We can reduce the amount of paper we use, in other words, save paper and recycle it, including cans, plastic bottles and so on. We could also reuse the water we use for cooking to wash the toilet or plants. We could also recycle paper plastic and cans so new ones need not be manufactured and  so we save our resources.

ADMT Lesson 1 Environment - Norullayaley

Will human beings' selfish acts bring about the Earth's doom?
    Yes. As we burn fossil fuels found buried deep within the earth, we are polluting the Earth with excess carbon dioxide and other deadly gasses. These gasses trap the heat from the sunlight inside the Earth's atmosphere, causing temperature to rise. If we continue to burn the fossil fuels and fill the atmosphere with these gasses, the Earth's temperature will rise at an alarming rate and the rising temperature will cause the ice at the North and South poles to melt. The water will then flood Earth's land and sooner or later, we will all be submerged underwater.

What we can we do to save the Earth?
    We have to conserve and manage the amount of electricity we use. Some ways do to this are by switching off any lights and fans when it is not needed or when we leave the room. Also switch off any electrical appliances when not in use and unplug it from the socket because even if the appliance is not switched on/being used, electricity will still flow through the wire.

ADMT lesson 1 : Environment

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

Yes, their selfish acts like polluting the world and not recycling will bring it about. Polluting will cause global warming, which in turn will cause the melting of the ice at the north and south poles, resulting in a massive flood.

What we can we do to save the Earth?
 
We can start by doing the three R's: reduce, reuse, and recycle. We can also help reduce pollution and save energy by only using electricity when it is absolutely needed. We should be more considerate about the future generation, we should not let them clean up the mess we created.

ADMT lesson 1

Yes, well if human continue their foolish ways to pollute the world, soon we be extinct. Humans are constantly emitting CO2 and thus heating up the world. Thus causing the ice poles to melt and sea lever would then rise. Therefore, lower land countries like Singapore would soon disappear as the water level rises. Our fuel, which is also running out, would make us vulnerable as we would not be able to drive in a vehicle anymore and then the factories would also not be able to function anymore.

Well, saving energy have a lot of ways. We could use energy-saving light bulbs, our car can also replace our fuel to natural gases. We could also turn off applications if not in use. Reduce, reuse and recycle is also very important in helping us saving the Earth. We all must repent before it is too late and the consequence would be dire too.

P.s. Sorry teacher, I was busy doing other Homework too and thus i did not really pay much attention to the deadline's time.

Human beings' selfish acts like dumping waste materials into water bodies and deforestation will all lead to global warming. If humans do not stop their doings right now, no sooner they will realize that Earth is no longer suitable environment they could live in. Temperature and water level of the Earth rose and she will be " died ".


We should plant more trees and stop deforestation. Using environment-friendly products, taking the public transport are also some ways to save the Earth. Always remember to Reuse, Recycle and Reduce.

Yes,it will bring about the Earth's doom if we keep going on like this. Man's selfish actions like using a lot of energy. This will cause us to burn more fossil fuels to  produce more energy, the carbon dioxide produced from the burning will cause the ozone layer to become thinner. This will in turn cause polar ice caps to melt and flood other countries or in other words - Global warming.    

We can conserve energy by using more energy - saving lightbulbs and energy - saving appliances and vehicles.We can also add a little change to our lifestyle by doing simple things like turning off the lights when we do not need them, switching off the fan when not in use. These little things can make a big difference if everyone does their part.
Reduce: It is to make the complete, full use of certain things we have, thereby using less of those things.
Reuse: It is to use things that are  able to be used again.
Recycle: It is to make used and unwanted things into more things that can be used again.
However these things are easier said than done. 




Ilya Haider

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

Yes. I feel that when we produce items in big factories or burn up fossil fuels, it will release lots of heat in the form of carbon dioxide and also methane which gets trapped in in the atmosphere. This will lead to global warming which will cause the polar ice caps to melt thus causing the sea level to rise and flood low-lying areas and eventually, the whole world.

What can we do to save the Earth?

We can Reduce, Reuse and Recycle to save the Earth's natural resources. We should also use environmentally friendly appliances and vehicles so less heat is trapped in the atmosphere.


Environment - Pasakorn Konwohrachet

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

Probably, yes. Since most people already claim that we are beyond the point of no return. Deforestation mostly contribute to this. Industrialization and urbanization also contribute. Hopefully, the Earth will stand until everyone evacuates to other planets?

What can we do to save the Earth?

Reforestation can help slow down Earth's doom. By conserving and not wasting precious material, we can help, bit by bit.

ADMT Lesson 1 - Environment-Denise Lim

Will human beings' selfish acts bring about the Earth's doom?
Yes, it would. If human being does not continue to take care and protect the world, the Earth will soon be destroyed due to the littering and dumping of waste in the water bodies, deforestation, and oil spills. Then there will be global warming and the Earth's "life span" will be shorter. 

What we can we do to save the Earth?
In order to save the Earth, we can conserve our natural resources as they all come from the environment, this enables us to save the materials and will therefore cut down the production of it.We can also help to reduce wastage and help to save the Earth by reducing, reusing, and recycling. But this can only be successful when everyone plays their roles because everyone has a part to play in protecting this Earth. Some of the examples are reusing plastic bags when purchasing items, reducing the amount of electricity used by switching off the lights when no one is in a room, and treating waste water into new water that is drinkable.

ADMT Lesson 1 Environment - Millie Thng

Will human beings' selfish acts bring about the Earth's doom?
Yes it will. We human beings are chopping down forests and burning them down for our own use. When we do so, there would be less oxygen in the air for us to take in and more carbon dioxide in the air. Since carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas, heat gets trapped in Earth. When there is more carbon dioxide in the air, more heat gets trapped. This will cause the polar ice cap to melt and causes a flood. We also litter. When a big amount of rubbish is burnt, we come back to the same point, more carbon dioxide is released into the air, heat gets trap so on and so forth.

What we can we do to save the Earth?
-plant more trees
-reduce the amount of litter used (reuse,reduce,recycle)
-stop burning or chopping down forests

ADMT Lesson 1 Environment - Serene Fong

Will human beings' selfish acts bring about the Earth's doom?
Yes, it will bring about the Earth's doom. We are emitting carbon monoxide, CFCs and other harmful gases. We are also dumping waste materials into the ocean. This will lead to global warming and melting of ice in places such as Arctic so much so some countries such as Venice will be completely submerged underwater. Eventually, it the Earth will face its doom. 

What we can we do to save the Earth?
We can reduce, reuse and recycle. For example, we can recycle used plastic bags. Switch off electronic devices when not in use such as the Fan. We can also use energy saving bulbs to cut down on the amount of energy we use. Thus, cutting down on the amount of fossil fuels being burnt.

ADMT Lesson 1 Environment- Reuven Lim

Yes, human beings have been blamed as the cause of much of our natural environment's problems. The main problems that most people are concerned about today lies on the ground or the atmosphere. These are ozone depletion, global warming, deforestation and air pollution.
However, thanks to human intervention, ozone depleting CFCs have been phased out almost completely.
Of the other three problems, global warming is the most serious, and deforestation and air pollution are just some contributors to global warming. Human populations have long been set up around water sources, such as lakes or seas. These towns can quickly develop into big, bustling, overcrowded ports or habours. The problem that this brings is that as the earth warms, glaciers melt faster than they are formed, thus, sea levels rise, and as large populations live by the sea, they have to relocate as their homes get flooded.



Deforestation is happening as humans get more advanced technology and cut down too many trees than the trees can repopulate. There are also other causes, such s illegal logging, wildfires, and the slash-and-burn technique used by farmers to clear land. Trees are a huge carbon basin, as they capture more carbon dioxide (the most abundant greenhouse gas) than any other land plant. When they are burnt, they cannot capture carbon dioxide, and the carbon dioxide that they had captured would be released.





Air pollution is when gases prevent heat from radiating back into space. This heats up the earth, and these gases are called greenhouse gases. The most predominant of these gases is carbon dioxide (cO2). Even though other greenhouse gases trap more heat than cO2, cO2 is still more common. More greenhouse gases is produced when fossil fuels are burnt, which are the remains of ancient plants and animals.





Humans can still save themselves by the easiest ways. Invest in Green Technologies, such as renewable energy, and not waste energy. They can reuse, reduce, and recycle, take public transport, buy legally approved wood furniture, and not use too much plastic (comes from oils and hard to down).

ADMT Lesson 1 Environment - helene tan

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

yes i think that human being's selfish acts will bring about the Earth's doom as we are polluting the environment by throwing rubbish in the sea and burning fuels.


What we can we do to save the Earth?

we can save the earth by reducing, reusing and recycling. we should all use eco-friendly cars and recycle plastic bottles, paper and cans. We should save energy by switching off the lights when we leave the room and use energy saving bulbs. We can also use the fan instead of the air-conditioner.

ADMT Lesson 1 Environment - Fatin Zafirah

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

Yes. When we burn fossil fuel,the carbon dioxide will go up to the atmosphere. That will cause unwanted heat to be trapped. Thus,it will warm up the Earth. Slowly the polar ice caps will melt and flood the whole world. 

What we can we do to save the Earth?

We can reuse,reduce and recycle. Firstly,we can use reusable grocery bags so we do not need to take plastic bags when at the supermarket. Second,we can reduce by using energy saving bulbs. Third,we can recycle our unwanted items such as plastic bottles and paper.
