Rachel BergezOur first project we all had to complete together, is Collaborative Group Projects but we were not allowed to communicate to one another face to face. We decided to use the Social Network of FaceBook to communicate with each other. This being our first project together we were all introduced to this a few new ways to incorporate technology in group projects. Not only using FaceBook more than a social tool but a communication tool used for more than fun. We also used Google Forms as a way to create the survey and a new program called Jing. Jing is this awesome program that is free and easy to use. Jing allows you to snap a picture or capture a video of any document or presentations on your computer. It also allows you to record your voice, so you can explain in your own words about a slideshow, survey or video with your own commentary. Using these new computer- based technologies we created a survey about Colors and Moods. I think we got this idea from unique Adam's name plate. It's an awesome concept because if your think about our associations with Colors and Moods. Colors shades can be universal or cultural, for example Yellow could mean Happiness, Blue is Sad and so on. There are so many different Color Meanings, I suppose people create their own, so using this thought we created a survey to find out if our moods reflected our color choices for deciding our wardrobe choices. Overall it was a new experience for me, I never could have believed how hard no face to face communication was and through it all we did it!I am really excited and I look forward to getting to know the people in my group better. I was surprised at well we were able to complete this project without talking to each other, so I am eager to get to know everyone in person.
