Tech class just started this week and it’s been really fun! Recently, we did a really fun breakout and learned a little bit about what we were going to do this year. But in this post, I’m not going to talk about what we have been doing here. Instead, I’ll be telling everyone what I hope to do in technology.
In technology, we’re going to learn how to find unique solutions to questions. According to Mr. Calvert, the first step in finding a solution is identifying a problem. That’s usually easy since problems are everywhere. After this step, you put yourself in the people who are facing the problem’s shoes. This helps you make a relevant solution to the problem and it also helps you understand the problem more. Once step is completed, brainstorm ideas to solve the problem. These ideas that you come up with can be very realistic or they can be moon shot ideas. Moon shot ideas are ones that are a little far fetched, but can still be accomplished. An example of a moon shot idea in history is when John F. Kennedy announced that Americans could go to the moon. After this, decide which ideas you will use and come up with a way to make them work.
I am excited for this in technology because I think that finding solutions to problems is a very important skill in life. Once you are able to do this, you can do just about anything because you have the tools to find a solution. That is why finding solutions to problems is something that I am really excited about for tech class and I really hope that we start doing this soon.
