Final Reflections

Mini-assignment multimedia - Coastal Fieldwork Excursion coverage

If I had more time, I would have probably included more content in this and a few technical problems, expecially with videos got in the way. I also had to make time for switching to doing coverage of this excursion instead of teacher interviews. In the end, I'm just glad everything works.
The task would probably have been less challenging if I followed my timeline properly. I frequently fell behind my intended schedual but luckily we received an extension. Part of this is my own fault but part of it is also due to lots of unexpected events such as assignments, competitions and getting sick.

Junior HSIE portfolio

To me, I think the excursions are the most enjoyable part of the portfolio, to look at and to put together. This is probably one of the main parts of learning HSIE subjects which is to actually see and appreciate what you are learning about.
One of the most annoying things while adding content were my conflicting ideas which made me change layout and navigation everytime I worked on it. Nevertheless, I'm happy with the layout.
I would have liked to have more student resources though, but having gone through doing HSIE subjects in year 7, 8 and 9, I felt that there wasn't much of the type of Mr Yeo booklet resources used. But then again, the resources we use need to always be updated anyway due to the nature of the subjects as seen with the current global financial crisis.
Because of we were able to deliver our work to real users, it made it a more worthwhile task  where we could learn and experience implementing information systems in real life situations. We were able to apply all the textbook theory we learnt about project work and the types of systems without really having to think about it.
