Trademark’s presentation

Something that I really liked and got me thinking during TradeMark’s presentation is Marcel Duchamps’ Fountain. It made me wonder where the limit is between artistic creation and duplication. Why is a signed urinal in an art exhibition considered a piece of art? Is the signature that is the creation or is it having a signed urinal? Or perhaps is it having  a urinal at an art expo that makes it original? Then also comes the question of ownership, who is he creator of this piece? The signer (it’s his signature)? The manufacturer (well, they made it)? The creator of urinals (they came up with the idea of urinals)? The expo organizer (for deciding that this was indeed a piece of art)?

The presentation yesterday also thought me how copyright is a way to protect your rights as a creator but also freely use other people creation by accrediting them for their work.

Interview answers:

Classmates: Haven’t contacted them in long time. Don’t talk to classmates on Zoom but tried emailing them. Regret not groupworks. But in class groupwork,

She can’t really tell what’s happening in class because Zoom doesn’t allow you to see. So hard to compare in-person students and virtual.

Difference with that’s been done in class and Zoom class. logistical reasons.

Ask questions. After Zoom, don’t wanna bother. eg assignment after class or during breaks

Teacher conference

1.

2. She started watching vlogs, write quotes to get motivation, keep her notes fun and organized because a lot of notes (adding colors, using markers, highlighters) are given.

3. Advantage: not having to hear the teacher when she doesn’t feel it, home vibes

Cons: Speed up class, hard to raise hand (problem communicating), talking to friends (don’t talk to classmates), worries about WIFI breaking down.

4. Communicating with teachers was somewhat an issue. She noticed they took time to respond to emails. Almaz also had WIFI issues at home, so she had to right emails to excuse herself. No issues asking questions to teachers, she is actually known for asking questions.

5. Classes: Arts, Music, Gym and Tech taught differently. Assignments with videos. No problems with materials, assignments don’t require special materials. But used the materials during in-person classes before pandemic.

6. Probably wouldn’t be possible, would just be based on personal experience. Wouldn’t be interactive and learn about it on your own. Not talking with anyone. Not the way school is supposed to work. Shows lack of effort.

7. Listen in class! Do your work, ask them. Believe that it’s the same whether online or in person. Focus what they have to do then. Make a schedule if class is too independent.

8. First was hard, so random everything was unexpected (had no experience). Using Zoom was kind of confusing, but got used to it now. Last year, got sick when moved to online and had a lot of work to do, eventually caught up to it. Hard to keep up.

Schedule change? Last year (5th grade), had no school on Wednesdays when they started online classes, just do assignments (NO zoom). Then this year (6th grade), she has class everyday.

9. Workload is pretty similar. Not really in contact.

10. Has a class to help about mental health and drugs, alcohol and things to watch out (Second Step). Don’t really have time to talk about, rely more on family.

11. No prefers to go back to school, but said it definitely made her have a different view about things. Excited to talk about things that happened and that she learned about during the pandemic once classes are in-person.

Laura’s presentation

This week Laura presented three different stories. In all of them, she was trying to trace back into what happened. We don’t really know what happened and we were trying to go back and find what actually happened. and I think education should also be the same. We are tying to learn something we don’t fully grasp. Using different techniques we try to solve the problem, find the truth, figure out what happened.

Interviewee

The person I will be interviewing is:

Almaz Melese, a 6th grader at Immaculate Conception School.

Blog post (Application Scott’s presentation)

Scott presented to our class about our safety when online. One thing that I learned from Scott’s presentation, and that shook me was that none of the passwords that I currently use are actually safe enough. To make our online accounts more secure, Scott recommended to use 2-step verifications. Since I am already familiarized with that (with my OSU account), I think that’s the best way for me to make my other accounts more secure.
