I did a ted talk for my presentation. I’m in a really good spot I finished my script and I’m almost done memorizing it, and I also finished my slideshow. I’ve practiced my script so many times that I think it will go smoothly when I get filmed. Every time I present I get better with my script and when I presented the first time I actually knew my script really well. When I presented to my class my classmates gave me good feedback so my presentation got better and better.
Here is my slideshow:
My main inquiry question is how do Apple products change peoples priorities? Apple products have changed peoples priorities in both good and bad ways. Apple products have changed peoples priorities in good ways because new technology allows them to do things more efficiently. An iphone can last up to 5 years as long it is up to date on iOS. Apple products have changed peoples priorities in bad ways because the iphone xr has the longest lasting battery, people can use social media and text a lot more. This results in iphone addiction. Addiction can lead to people buying expensive Apple products when they really don’t need them.
For Capstone I’m researching Apple. For Capstone I have to do a site visit. For the site visit I went to an Apple Store. When I went to the Apple Store I looked around at all of the devices, such as the iphones, computers, and ipads. I also looked at iphone cases, the different colors on the back of the iphones, and the headphones lined up on the wall, which were all different colors. There were a lot of people at the store, which showed me that the devices are popular. The products were not in glass boxes so people were free to use them as samples. This was a good idea because Apple was advertising their products. Overall the experience was okay because I’ve already been to an Apple Store many times before I went for my site visit.
For capstone I’m researching Apple and I have to do a site visit and an interview. I interviewed an Apple Creative, named Francesca. An Apple Creative teaches lessons to people on how to use an iphone. Francesca was able to answer most of my subtopic questions, but I also changed the wording in some of the questions because I wanted them to make more sense for her. For example one of my subtopic questions is why do people buy Apple products over other brands. I changed the wording and I asked are apple products better than samsung products? Instead of why do people buy Apple products over other brands? She said apple products are better because you get the one-on-one connection with the apple employee who is helping you choose your device, and you can sample the device because it’s on display in the store. Also because Apple doesn’t come out with a device until everything about it is perfected. That’s why Apple comes out with a phone only once a year. Overall my interview was very good because I learned a lot of new facts about Apple.
For capstone I am doing Apple and my inquiry question is: How have Apple products changed peoples priorities? I had to make five subtopic questions that relate to my inquiry question. My first subtopic question is: Are people addicted to Apple products and why? My second question is: Why do kids in elementary school have phones now but ten years ago they didn’t? My third question is: Why do people buy Apple products if they are so expensive? My fourth question is: How have Apple products maintained their popularity? And my final question is: Why do people buy Apple products over other brands? Next I will start to research about my subtopic questions and answer them. I have already started doing that by gathering sources to use for my research.
For my capstone project I chose to research Apple. I am interested in Apple because I have a lot of Apple devices and I want to learn more about them. For me I thought that choosing my topic was pretty simple because I have always been interested in Apple. I have to come up with a main inquiry question to research about, my inquiry question is: How have Apple products changed peoples priorities? I also have to think of five subtopic questions that relate to my inquiry question I will include those questions in my next post…
