Mind Tools

Today we have looked at a website called Mind tools and it helps you manage things in your head like logical thinking, being creative, stress and loads more things. This can be useful because people can get confused about what they want to do or how to do it and this site helps them organise it.

I found some things useful like ways to organise being creative, what I mean by this is instead of having a million ideas and not doing anything about it they tell you to write it down or to find a way just to do something practical with it. The benefit to organising your ideas is so you can easily access it and develop your idea instead of thinking about your idea all over again.

Lego mindstorms and 2D animation

Recently I have been doing things like making robots out of Lego and programming it with a information brick, I have also done some 2D animation. I enjoyed the animation the most because I found it fun to come up with a story and think of characters and props. The Lego mind storms was good because we got to make a robot and make it move and do certain functions, we choose one project called the Tracker and followed the guide on how to make it but we had to adapt it because we were missing the wright tracks. We overcame the missing parts issue by adapting it to our own design and it functioned very well by moving and rotating its arms to sweep anything out of the way.

Bullying Awareness, Ein Hiaith, CV building and Personality Tests.

Yesterday, Me, Tom, Joe, Jacob and Rob took part in a Bullying Awareness exercise, cards were handed out with different statements and we had to have a discussion on whether the statements were true or false and what context they were used in. We also completed our Ein Hiaith certificates.

I  was asked to watch a few videos on Ein Hiaith and complete a quiz to get my certificate. I also completed a Personality Test and my personal result was ‘Architect.’ The statements given about the Architect personality was kind of accurate in some parts and some parts didn’t really relate to me. I also updated my CV to match my current situation and me and Diane discussed possible apprenticeship opportunities.
