My artifact is the reviewing project of MATH1001 in 2020, it is a project composed of three assignments.
The competencies I will defense on is “Learning How to Learn”.
As I said, this is a reviewing project, we separate it into three part to review what we have learned in MATH1001 in this year.
The first part is the Math video, it is a video made by me only, it’s about “Vector” in the field of math.
The second part is a mind map about Coordinate Geometry, it meant to shows my understanding of it and my limitation of the definitions and concepts about it.
The third one is a class designed by me and my members: Vans, Coco, Steven and Yang; the topic is about introduction of functions(linear function). This assignment is after the previous one, this whole assignment has been for a week.
This is a collection of three reviewing assignments, and they are finished now.
For me, this has been a helpful exercise especially when I have to explain about concepts I learned before, and my crew workers are very helpful too. The skills and knowledge I applied in the whole project is about connection what I learned to how I teach/demonstrate to other, also changing my language of understanding into the language people would undertand.
The mind map took me a lot of time, I spend 2-3days separately to work on this graph, I go back to all the assignments and key concepts and then sort them into several topics and put the concept, description and illustration together in one topic.
But the result turns out well, and seems like I used my time correctly. Because I found out I am the one who has the highest score in this mind map.
The video goes quite fluent and also is the self-designed class.
We have several outputs from the class:
- Online class
- A note about the key knowledge we talked about on class
- An assignment of exercises about our teaching
- A collaboration note about how we collaborate during and before the class
In this part I will use the rubrics of “Learning How to Learn” to have an assessment about my role.
Identify barriers to success
This part can be shown in the class we taught, in the ppt the first thing we do is to find if we have any barriers both for us and other learner while understanding the concepts.
Also it is reflected in the collaboration note-we understand what kind of knowledge/skill we are lack of in the class so that we can divide the work wisely.
Note-taking and note transferring
This is about how we take the note and how we use our personal notes before and during the class.
This part can be shown in my personal math video, I talked about the practical ways of using the concept I mentioned about-Vectors, also me and my teammates has use another page in the ppt talking about how is functions practical in our daily life and how to express an function in the environment of daily life.
Active collection and production of feedback
For the mind map part, I asked my classmate Peter for his feedbacks and also in the self-designed class me and team asked about Ryan’s feedback on the first draft of the class. The progress was in a voice call, but you can find the updated draft in the collaborating shimo.
These above is about the content according to the rubrics of “Learning How to Learn”
Keep, Stop, Start
Keep taking what I have learned into real life, keep updating the mind map once I have learned new things.
Stop not taking collaborating notes about what the team says, take more note than what the team decides, also try to memorize what the team and the feedback person said.
Take more collaborating notes and talk with more people about their feedbacks and try to distinguish constructive feedbacks from non constructive ones.
