Presentation Critique

slide-1-638Our last assignment was to critique a power point presentation. My power point was, Profile Pic’s Do’s and Don’ts. We were given six categories and were told to rate the chosen power point on them.  The six categories were – info, colour scheme, images, font and use of text, content is relevant and clear, and overall design.

The info provided in this power point was well organized, with a perfect amount of each info on each page. The pages were not cluttered with words, but enough writing so you were able to understand. The colour scheme stuck to two main colours. Blue and yellow. You may be thinking that those colours look awful together, but the yellow was florescent, it was a duller colour, but still popped out on the navy blue background. All images used in this slide were relevant to one another, they were all Lego pictures that related to the words perfectly with out any confusion. The had a picture to almost every slide corresponding with the text. Font at times was difficult to read, they choose a font were the words were compacted together. To improve this they could have made the test smaller of chosen a different font so the text was less compact. Through out the slide show each slide stuck to the main topic, ” Profile Pic’s, Do’s and Don’ts”. All the tips were well written and easy to understand. They also gave reasoning on why you want your profile picture they way they tell you to have it. Finally the last category was overall design, the colours worked well together  and the slides and formatting was kept consistent. Overall I would give this power point an 8/10.

TweetChat

During this week of BST 10 we collaborated with the Hoover Alabama students through a tweet chat. What is a tweet chat you may ask? A tweet chat is virtual gatherings or meeting held on twitter.  Tweet chat participants use a hash tag to identify their tweets belonging to a partictwitterular chat. The hash tag we used was #camhoobiz symbolizing the collaboration between Campbell and Hoover High school businesses classes. In our tweet chat we discussed 7 different questions about social media and personal branding. During this tweet chat I learned that it is important to keep in mind that anyone can see what you are posting. It is important to remember that some employers may explore your social media pages to see what kind of person you are. I enjoyed this tweet chat because everyone was able to see everyone else opinions, you could respond and discuss and share your opinion with others. This is something that I would enjoy to do every two weeks. In the future maybe we could discuss more of our personal lives, and have a few different hash tags that are of different topics that people could discuss on. I would enjoy to get to know  the Alabama students better and actually have a conversation with them personally.

Cyber-Bullying

Cyber- bullying has become a serious issue of the past few years. As we all know technology has improved immensely over the past years, sometimes this is a good thing, other times not so much. An issue that was sprung upon us while technology was improving was cyber-bullying. More then 43% of kids have been bullied online, and 1 of 4 of them it has happened more then once. Over the past few days in business class we have been looking up statistics and ways to prevent cyber-bullying. We made info graphics showing information about cyber-bullying and the harms it can cause. Researching facts really opened my eyes, I learned about how many people have been bullied online and that cyber-bullying is not just saying rude comments about others online.
