Allysa's 2 Minutes to Make a Difference Reflection.

1. - Make a Difference Brainstorming Powerpoint.

- 2 Minutes to Make a Difference VERSION 1

- 2 Minutes to Make Difference FINAL CUT

2. Please reflect and talk about the changes you made between the first and final cut of your movie. Were the student comments helpful in making your final cut better? The changes we made were re-recording our voices, putting the pictures in order, adding more detail, and adding our interview. The student comments were helpful and we used most of them to change our video, making it better.

3. How did you find your expert? List 3 important points your expert added to your movie. What did you learn from your expert? We found our expert from the help of Mrs. Armstrong. She recommended people from the Red Cross, the Philippine Canadian Centre of Manitoba, etc. We learned a lot from our expert, one thing is that the people in poverty aren't necessarily victims, but survivors. Another thing is that the Philippines is a country that experiences strong natural disasters from time to time. Lastly, we learned that here in Canada, we have a strong network of agencies to help us. But in the Philippines, they suffer from conflicts, low income levels, and such.

4. If you did not find an expert tell us why you were unsuccessful. Be honest. We were successful in finding our expert.

5. What was your greatest success in the 2 minutes project. What skills will you take away with you and use in the future? Our greatest success was the fact that we found an expert to talk to about our topic. A skill I may take with me is laying everything out before starting anything, just so we don't have to memorize and cram everything in when we're actually doing it.

6. What frustrated you during the movie making process? What strategies did you use to become successful? What frustrated us the most was probably some of the teamwork and finding an expert. We never actually thought we'd find an expert in our short period of time left, luckily Mrs. Armstrong (The lady judging our videos) helped us brainstorm a bunch of places to find one. For the teamwork part, we just all started working harder and became more focus when there wasn't as much time left to finish our video.

7. Why is the 2 Minutes project important to Grade 8 Students? The 2 minutes project is important to us grade 8's because, we learned how to care and help out other people other than ourselves and the others around us. Also because other people in the world needed the help more.

8. How will you make a difference in the future? In the future, we decided to pack up a box and send it to the Philippines to give to the people who need it. Some things we could pack in the box are clothes, canned or processed food, and even money.
