English Language - Communication - Homework

Why is communication important?

Communication is important because it allows us to interact with each other and share our ideas, thoughts and even feelings with each other. It plays a big part in our daily social life...

What is/are your favourite form of communication. Why?

My favourite form of communication is through talking. It is the easiest way of communicating and also the most used way of communicating with each other, although I sometimes use the internet platforms.

How do you decide which form of communications to use in a situation?

It depends on the situation, if it was a simple situation, we should be using mostly the talking way. If, fo example, if we're to keep quiet, we would make signs, especially using hands, to communicate.

What difficulties do you face in communicating with others?

When we're talking, I have to repeat myself a few times for them to understand, sometimes.

Day 2: End-of-Day Reflection

What have you done today?

I have built a tower using materials provided. The goal is to keep the tower from toppling over as the number of marbles put into the cup (Container in the tower) increases. Surprisingly enough, our class's short-but-strong tower came in second. But, it didn't matter who won and who lost, it's the process that matters, the efforts that we put in and also the teamwork.

I have used keynote on Mac, or learning device, and manipulate the functions to make our presentations look nice, organized, clear, and also attractive in some cases.

There will be differences in opinions because everyone has their own opinions and views. Some may have ideas, or voice opinions that you may have not thought about, or said it. Everyone think differently,  and thus everyone has their own opinions.

How should you behave when you're doing group-work?
We should keep our noise levels down when we are discussing or doing group work as other groups might also be discussing about their own group work or project. When someone in the group is sharing their idea, we should listen to him or her. We could have a little fun and joke around in our groups but it is also important that we do our work properly.

A few pictures of my group when we were building a tower together:

Wishes On The Wall

Wallwisher is useful in a way that allows us to collaborate our ideas that we contributed on a wall. We could find out about different points of views from people about the same topic or subject. We could also use this for our learning activity when we need to come up with different ideas and improve on it.

However, even the wall has its own limited space to contribute our ideas.

- (Google Talk)

Out of all the applications, my favourite application is wikipedia. It is a great source of information and I could find out about things - of different scales.
