Alyda's Sociology

"Very effective good introduction. Good example screens. Your write-overs as the screen progress work very well. Nice guiding questions keep the message moving. Good point – if more maker spaces, then maybe a good logical result would follow.…"

"Energetic music, good screen changes, good design. You got me interested, then I had questions I think you could answer with examples in your video. Examples of what might be invented in a maker space? More on 3D printing? This video shows that you…"

FCGP Makerspaces Video

"You used animations effectively. Good transitions and changes. Technically you did a good job. Questions I had: What is the Impact on society? The way you could clarify this is by providing examples, then the viewer will be clearer on your meaning.…"

Terry Smith commented on KylieT_AAHS's blog post Makerspaces Impact on Society and Global Community
"Very good technically. You made several important statements that brought up questions in my mind. What new things can people make as you suggested? How do they build learning communities?"

Terry Smith commented on BrysonK _ QCA's video


"You explain your message with both text and images. Good point: you said working together allows us to do things that we might not be able to do alone. By citing the department of education, you supply support for the significance of makerspaces.…"

"Makerspace Video -- In your Powtoon, you explained what a makerspace was and how people gather there, and how people love to create things. You discussed how makerspaces allow us to reuse and to recycle objects and materials. What might be some…"

"The environment is addressed with your opening scene - opens with tree cut field – trees have been removed for paper. The message is that maker spaces can help preserve trees. Then you describe makerspaces: where they are, what they…"

"Here are some comments on your maker space video posted on YouTube: • You relied on text screens to make your main points, and this can be effective. In this case, there was no sound with the video, so the viewer is not as attracted –…"

Makerspace And Impact on Environment

"Good job using a narrator at the very start – this was your voice, I assume. Paper production related to saving trees was an important idea and creatively connected to maker spaces. How can we save the trees specifically using the maker space?…"

"Comments on your YouTube video: You used contrast with/without to make your opening point, then used it again with the outsourced video.. The hand drawn signs were effective and well-timed. All I needed to know more would have been some examples of…"

"The video has a professional looking beginning with your name among the buildings. You said people in maker spaces work on what they like – what might be some examples of what you mean? Technically this was very well done."

Hey Mr Smith, 

Thanks for the feedback :) and I do apologise for replying so late. I did consider how teachers could adapt the learning in other ways however due to some time constraints and a lack of research and preparation, those ideas were unable to be brought up into my final video.

If done again, I would definitely consider other ways of how Adaptive Technologies are integrated and used by teachers.

Thank you for the positive feedback! Sorry this reply is coming rather late. I don't check my school e-mail very often. In regards to your question, unfortunately, I was unable to get an outsource clip for my video (for whatever reason, my request was never fulfilled). I tried my best to make up for that by using video clips that I found on the internet. The only thing I would've done differently if I could would be that I would've put in more videos that I took myself, and I would've included an outsource clip (obviously).

Hi Terry, I have actually been having trouble downloading/uploading my video this past weekend, so I plan on asking my teacher tomorrow on what I should do to fix it.

Terry, I just want you to notice what you've done with the judging. The fact you leave comments on these student videos gives very important feedback. It tells the students that people notice. I helps them know that what they do matter. Well, Terry, you matter. What you're doing matters very much, thank you. You are doing a great job judging!
