Today we had our Capstone share for our parents and yesterday we had Capstone share for other classes in our school. I thought that when we were presenting for other classes their was less pressure on me and I felt more comfortable. I think this is partly because when I was presenting to parents it was the final Capstone project. When I first stood up to present my heart was beating at a rapid rate. I went up and used a clicker to advance the slide. When I first touched the clicker I touched the wrong arrow! I then learned the right arrow to click. I think that the first slides were good, but then at the middle I started to stumble and at the end it was ok. Since I had a video from my drive in the TED Talk it wouldn’t play because you need access to it. So I redid it in the classroom. Capstone was stressful, but it was worth it. I had a lot of fun doing my Capstone project on Snapchat and thought it was an awesome learning experience. Capstone has been an amazing journey. Here is the TED Talk I gave:
As Capstone is getting closer and closer I am working on my Script and TED talk more and more. I think that I am mostly done with this process. Now I just have to memorize my lines more and work on speaking well. I am a little bit nervous to present but I know that it will all be worth it and once I present I’ll be super proud of myself and feel awesome. Practicing is very tiering and gets boring because I am just repeating the same thing over and over and over. It is also kind of iritating when I mess up because I know my script, but need to perfect it. It helps me to not focus on the slides and think about something else when I practice. At home I have had my uncle watch my TED talk and give me somethings that I should improve on. I think that when I practice with someone watching helps more because their is more pressure to do well which helps me stay focused on what I am doing and not go off topic. I think that having a topic I was interested in helped me a lot when practicing because it kept me determined and motivated me to work hard.
