Reflection

For this common task I had to create a webpage using Dreamweaver. My topic was Google vs. Bing. I also had to make a flash animation for my website Using Macromedia Flash. In order to ensure that the original pictures can be located I had to create a works cited page. Skills that I have learned while doing this common task include how to use Dreamweaver, how to use macromedia flash, and what a website needs in order for it to be efficient and visually appealing. In order to prepare for this common task I had to learn about Dreamweaver and macromedia flash. I used them for many weeks before starting this common task.

The most challenging part f this common task was making the website look visually appealing while also including the proper information. At first the website looked nice but I soon realized it had hardly any info. The easiest part of this common task was organizing the website using tables. It is very easy to make a table and then quickly modify it.

I met five standards by completing this task. The first standard that I met was standard 1.1 which states, communicate effectively using oral, written, and technological formats. I did this by creating a web page that communicated information about my topic. I used technology to create the webpage. I also used writing by putting the information on my website. The second standard that I met was standard 1.2 which states that the student must meet proficiency in content and applied learning standards as outlined in the Rhode Island High School Diploma System. I met this standard by getting above an 80 on this common task. I met standard 1.4; demonstrate the use of reasoning and problem solving skills and strategies through analysis and synthesis of data and information. I met this standard by being able to fix the random glitches that sometimes occur when making a website. I met standard 2.1, the student must demonstrate the behaviors and skills for independence and collaboration. I met this standard by making this website by myself with no outside help. I met standard 2.2, participate as a citizen in the local, national, and global community. I met this standard by making a website that can be viewed by anyone with an internet connection.
