Reflection

For this assignment I had to create a web site on the topic of my choice. I chose to do it on "Invader Zim" and included a lot of information into it. During this assignment I not only got better with Dreamweaver but I learned how to do other things such as add videos (putting them in MP4 format and inserting them as a plugin), turning off autostart (inserting autostart="false" into the code for the video), adding new fonts (downloading them onto the font folder in an admin's account) and many other things. In order to learn the content I had to ask Mr. Herz, ask the people around me, practice by making web sites before, go on web forums and look in the textbook. The most challenging aspect of this task was figuring out how to do all of the things I didn't know. It was difficult to find and took time to execute like taking the videos out of autostart. The least challenging aspect of this project was writing about "Invader Zim" because I already knew a lot about it. For example, while typing the character descriptions I already knew what I wanted to type. The completion of this task has also helped me to meet many expectations. It helped me to meet 1.1, Communicate effectively using oral, written, and technological formats because I had to communicate with my peers and my teacher orally, write the info on the web site and use various technology to communicate. I also met 1.4, Demonstrate the use of reasoning and problem solving skills and strategies through analysis and synthesis of data and information because I had to use reasoning to solve problems that I had about the web site. Next I had to meet standard 2.1, demonstrate the behaviors and skills for independence and collaboration because I had to work independently to create my web site and I had to collaborate with others for help. There were also numerous technology standards I met. I met standard 1.2, Students are proficient in the use of technology because I had to be proficient in order to create a functioning web site. I met 2.2, Students practice responsible use of technology systems, information, and software because I respected my teacher and classmates and left my workspace clean. Lastly I met 5.1, Students use technology to locate, evaluate and collect information from a variety of sources because I cited a variety of sources in my works cited. This has helped me to develop as a student because it helped me to make websites and condense a lot of information and this has helped me to develop as an individual because I can now solve problems better.
