In this term, we didn’t learn new things in class but we took back the old experience to explore or learn more about it independently. We only have one week to work on this task so we need to find work independently by using any app or coding to do any project that we want to study. I worked on Photoshop because there are many more things to explore on. Adobe Photoshop (PS as a short name) is a graphics editor developed and published by Adobe for Windows and macOS. It was originally created in 1988 by Thomas and John Knoll. PS is a really cool app to edit any pictures because it got all the functions that we need, as there a lot of functions so no one will know all of it. To create or edit pictures in photoshop I meet a lot of struggle finding the tools and functions to edit any pictures. I always research, asking my friend and follow the instructions on Youtube when I have this struggle.
The project that I work on in this class is the neon style which is a famous style to edit any portrait picture that includes the frame, glow and drawing to make the picture look fancy. I used Youtube as instruction. I look at some sample of the neon style picture to created but I don’t copy them. It was really difficult for me because it uses lots of steps and I also need to draw, which I’m not really good at drawing. It the first time for me to do this style so it new and hard but after I know how to edit this I start to edit this style faster in other photos. The picture that I edit is just a normal one so I want to create other neon styles that look more advanced.
This year we have been learning a lot of math that use in our daily life like Fractions, decimals and percentages, coordinate plane and rate problem… It really important to our daily life because we use these problems to figure out somethings that we see in our life. Fraction, decimals and percentage are likely similar to each other because in our daily life we see it when a store is lowing the price of its product like 15% off. The coordinate plane is which show us the map of places where something are located like my house is at -9, 3 in the map. Rate problem is difficult to define what we use in real life and basically, it goes like this (It takes 46 minutes for 10 people to paint 3 walls. How many minutes does it take 4 people to paint 6 walls?)
In this class, we use Khan Academy to practice and it like our homework to do the task because Khan Academy has programs that state every lesson of Math and other subjects. It really to be in this class because we gotta be working in teams, do the activity to review on quizzes and Kahoot that all of us can participate. And one of the biggest quotes is “Make the most of your learning”. It means a lot of things to me like to gain my knowledge, try hard in learning, try my best in learning, try to do your homework on time and make sure I really focus in class. That is not all yet “Make the most of your learning” also mean to collaborate and help classmate to because everyone always finds struggle and they always needs support so collaboration state in “Make the most of your learning”. To make the most of my learning continue I will do the things that I list on the top and I will research more about things that I learned and try my best in learning.
Precious Plastic is an exploration that recycles the plastic into things that we can use. We not only recycle plastic but we learned a lot about plastic such as how it made, how it affects our environment and what did some people do to stop using plastic and many more things. Another thing is that we learned about the four machines that they use to recycle plastic such as Shredder machine, Extrusion machine Injection machine, and Compression machine. We also plane to make Shredder machine but we can’t because of several reasons like takes time and if we make it, it really dangerous for us to use.
We had a trip to Siem Reap and we go to Naga Earth and Rehash Trash. I learned a lot how plastics and old cooking oil are recycled into many things that we use every day like plastic to bracelet, keychain, water bottles frame and old cooking oils into Eco-Friendly Soap biodiesel Fue. Naga Earth is one of the companies that take the cooking oil waste and recycle it into Eco-Friendly Soap to wash hand and into biodiesel fue for the car and it doesn’t affect our environment a lot. They also recycle paper and make it into their business card by using the silk screen to print. Naga earth also gives away they soap to government schools in Cambodia. Rehash Trash is recycle plastic into things that we can use. When we come back, we teach other students in Liger to know how to make bracelet and keychain from plastic and recycle the paper that we had used. When we come back from Siam Reim, we alo teach other junior students how to recycle the plastic that we learned from Naga Earth and how to knit plastic into things the we learned from Rehash Trash. We do this because we wanted to share our knowlege to other peopel.
Plastics are all around Cambodia and the world so if there are more companies that recycle plastic there will be less plastic, also we need our people to use fewer plastics and our environment will be better.
Khan Academy is one of my favorite things to do in math class. It is a website that has every Math puzzle that we learned, I like to do the puzzle in khan because it has the video of the explanation if we stuck or forgot how to do and they will explain to you how to do it. Also, this website is for us to practice what we have learned and we can do more activities in it, it not have only math but it has every subject by grade. I don’t know why every assignment that the teacher gave to me, I always did it, never late for the due date because in my free time I always go to Khan and do the assignments.
For round two, we have learned a lot of how to capture a good photo from the camera. We learned a lot about the setting of Exposure which are IOS, shutter speed, and Aperture. If we want to take good pictures we need to know about these three things because somehow your pictures will be so dark or so light sometimes so noise so we need to know how to change these things to make the pictures perfect. Also, we need to take the pictures by Camera Shot Types like the long shot, medium shot, close-ups, etc. Do the different types of shots, is show how a photo essay you want a mix of different by giving the details in the pictures.
Here are some of the pictures that I took using the Exposure and
At first in Multimedia class we have learned about researching something on the internet like Primary source and secondary source. The teacher told us to research things on the internet. After, we finished that we have learned about Adobe apps like Photoshop Lightroom and Indesign. We learned about these apps so we can make a poster about our research by using these three apps. First, we need to edit photos that related to our research in photoshop and Lightroom. Then, add the pictures into Indesign and add some information about it. It is so helpful to learn how to use Adobe apps because in the future we will use it a lot, and another thing is that I never know how to use Indesign and Lightroom, I only know how to use Photoshop. But now I know how to use all. Here is my work
Geography is the best exploration in my second year at liger, every junior gotta have this exploration. Our facilitators divided us into four teams and each team have 15 people, each team will have 7 weeks to research about the provinces that they need to work on. In that 7 weeks, we have 1 week to go on a trip to the provinces that we need information about. After, 7 weeks another team need to research and find information about the provinces that they need to work on. I am in team 4 that is focused on the eastern part of Cambodia, which have Kratie, Stung Treng, Ratanakiri and Mondulkiri province. For that 7 weeks, I need to work so hard to get information for these provinces. Before going on the trip we need to prepare a lot of question to ask people and the Department of Culture and Fine Arts. Also, we need to prepare our personnel staff to like clothes, computer, book, pens and pencils and a lot more. On the week that we go on the trip, everyone sleeps at 10 P.M and woke up at 5:30 A.M or earlier, so a lot of people get tired but we put a lot of effort to get a lot of information to put in my book.
Cambodian geography book is made for government schools and other people interested in learning about Cambodia. We make this book for Cambodian people, students, and other people to know more about Cambodia. In our country, they aren’t a specific book about geography in Cambodia, so we are the first students who make this book.
My highlight of the trip is that I gotta learned Tom Puon language, which is the indigenous people language. I learned indigenous people language by interview an old man that lives near to Yeak laom lake that we went and he is indigenous people (Tom Puon). He not only told us about the indigenous language but he told us more about the history of Yeak laom lake and even though, he told us the hidden places in Ratanakiri province and the history of it. I really love what he did because he shares what he knows for us to know too, so we can put the information in the book. He told us to be good kids, to be we can be a change again so we can change our country to be better.
To sum up, for our research we need to put a lot of effort to get information for our book. Also, we need to interview a lot of people to gets a lot of information. In addition, to get a lot of information from other people is not easy we need to tell them about our plane and explain to them why we need this information.
Community documentary is an exploration that on makes the document about four villages that in Kampong Speu province, there are Srey Sompong, Tro Paing Leap, Prey Unser and Cruk PoPul. We are making the video to show the new generation how the villages are changing over time. I also put a lot of effort to make the video because it needed a lot of time.
First of all, it so hard for me because I never know how to edited video in Premiere Pro so I need to learning by myself, try thing in that and watch the youtube video. For interviewing and taking video is so easy for me but the hardest thing is editing video, all of my friends in this exploration, they never know how to edit video in Premiere Pro but now they know how because they try to it. It similar to my quotes because if you don’t try new thing you never know how to do it but if you try it, nothing you can’t earn, at least you know how to do it a little bit.
Our final result is that we got the video to show the villager in these villages that we went to. Also, I got many experiences with editing video and how to make documentary videos.
My second year at liger is really quick. Everyone is trying harder at learning, to get more knowledge than last year. My favorite topic in my second year is Gender Summit. I did learn about the gender summit with senior students, I gotta know more about bullying, how it affects us and other people, also I did know not to bully people with their look or their personality. Bullying can affect people in many ways, it even can kill people, that why we should not bully anyone to make them feel sad.
Senior told us a lot how can it affect us and the solution when we see someone got bullying or we got bullied by other people. Many students in government schools got bullied by other groups of student that make them don’t want to go to school, so it’s will affect their future. If you see someone is got bullying by other groups of people, you can go and tell them not to bully anyone else. If they don’t listen to what you are saying, you can go and find an adult to come and tell them not to do that again.
In addition, many people think that bullying to other people is fun, but it’s not fun for other people who got bullying. Bullying can lead them to have so many bad ways, for those people who bully other people, might get a bad habit for their whole life, they always look down to other people. If they always bully people, they won’t have a lot of friends so they will be lonely, no one wants to be friend with them. Also, it makes people that got bully in many bad ways. If they got to bully a lot in school, they won’t come to school again, so that will affects their future and their life. If you want to have a lot of friend and a lot of people love you, so don’t bully anyone else.
