Maybe we are the last group which has the review for the mid-term presentation last Wednesday ^^
Frankly saying, I don't intend to analyze carefully our mistakes when presenting in this entry, 'cuz I personally think that every of us can realize what we should avoid and what we should pay more attention to develop after attending the show and reading many blog entries written by other groups in our class.
I just wanna write down my own experience after doing this task, I mean, group presentation with power point.
The truth is when I heard Mr.Speaking said that one part of our midterm tests was presenting with power point, I felt a little anxious although this was not the first time I had to stand in front of the class and present with this program +__+ The reason for my anxiety is that we don't have enough time and enough chances to get together and discuss the project with each other at school, 'cuz we come to class at 6.30 and leave at 11.30; after that, almost all of us feel tired and just wanna go home for having lunch and taking a nap then. All we can do is just dividing our work logically into 4 small parts for 4 members in group. And another important reason is that not all of us has a personal computer at home. At first, our group considered this must be the main problem 'cuz doing like that, we counldn't unify our ppt file :((
blah blah blah
' What happened after that? What is actually the problem? Or you are making up something just to say? '
One of my friends asked me those questions above when I asked him what I should continue to write :">
Yeah, sorry for exaggerating the difficulties of our work, but they were not sth I made up myself ^^ Actually, our group had some troubles with this project at first, but they were not big problems. We all tried our best to arrange to finish it as perfectly as we could ^^
Doing this assignment not only helps us to improve our speaking skills and put aside our shyness when presenting in front of the class but also helps us to master the new technology which must be useful for our career in the future. I have to admit that I haven't done anything related to power point since I was in grade 11, so when being back to deal with this program, I had to learn again every little thing, such as how to insert a picture, or how to add animations, ect. I used to think it was so terrible to find out step by step such normal things like these, but then, it really made me feel interested :D
We find that our classmates' pictures in our powerpoint presentation is another interesting thing :D Like every other group, we were very confused about the appearance and the content of the slideshow. We also wanted it to be informative, artistic and easily comprehensible as well. And then, I realized that 4 people with 4 crazy brains is much better than just 1 person with his own brain ^^ If this had been an individual work, I would have never thought to change the lessons and their examples into such funny pictures and situations like that :"> And our group was very pleased to hear that almost of you were interested in our ppt file ^^
What's more, I am sure to say that it helps us much to work better with our teamates and to understand the potentials of each other more thoroughly. For example, I had never known that Nha Trang was such an expert in Photoshop until I saw her treat some low-quality pictures :D And I also hadn't noticed that Bi' and Hien were always fond of taking various kinds of pictures :))
In brief, this helps us a lot to become more confident in such tasks in the future ^^
All above is just our group's experience which we really want to share with you. And if you like to view our ppt file once again, you can go to this link [ ~ 20mb ] and download it. But please ask us if you want to use it for any purposes ^^ Thanks !
