Two Million Minutes Reflection.

One: My three favourite subjects in school are, Geography, French and Science.
Two: When i go to collage i wanna study medicane or war.
Three: My goals after graduation is to plan out my life, and go straght into making it, no break in between.
Four: I put a lot of time in to majour projects, i start my project the same time i get it. I like getting a head start on things, so that way i can go back and correct it if i have to.
Five: When i have homework and i need help i only ask my mom. I only ever need help with homework when it comes to math and that was both my parents best subjects.
Six: The only goals my parents have me is to be succesfull, they dont care what i become or what i do. They want good grades and a good education. I have no choice i have to go to university there's is absloutly no fighting that. But, my im always told i can do what ever i set my mind to as long as its going to get me somewhere.
Seven: I have had a few teachers that do not know the subject they are teaching. Deffintly my math teacher.. more then half my class was/is failing and its extremly hard to learn anything! Im always having to come home and get taught again. Which i never have trouble in any other courses. I think it all depends on the teacher.
Eight: Im extremly competive when it all comes down to it, i wanna pass but i wanna pass with a high number, i dont like getting the lowist grade out of all my friends. I put in all my effort into until it gets to the point like math if the teachers not helping i cant get it then its done. I dont like failing cause i feel like i let my parents down.
Nine: Its a concurn in the way that if they are not coming from our country but come from say India and take up all our spots i dont think thats far because, thats our source of education they have got there own. But, then again if they worked for it i guess they deserve it. although i dont full agree with it. And when i walk away from this course i will have the knowledge to be so much more aware with the world.

My perfect learning enviorment

 What is your perfect learning enviorment?
My perfect learning enviorment is, being able to use your computeres and phones for the use of finding out the information you need to know. Some teachers are all for students learning on computers and meeting children on there own road exactly where there standing because, that is exactly where students will learn the best. But other teachers are all about the olden days when the old fashion paper and pencil was exactly what was used around the clock, when you had to look up your information by flipping threw huge books, book after book. My perfect learning enviorment, is a little of both. Being able to sit in class and learn but also having the mixture of learning to the best of our ability on todays technolgy. Only because, once we are sent out into the world things are a little diffrent now and not only you do you need to know how to read, write adn speak a language now you need two languages. Now you need to know how to work mobile phones and every app on a computer, you need to know how to vitualy communcatire anytime, anywhere because, if we dont know that were going to have to go right back to school to learn everything we didnt.

When face book crashed, i had absolutely no idea and i think every ones reaction would be pretty traumatic only because, everyone tends to use face book as a social connection and although no one wants to admit to pretty much being addicted to face book everyone is. I think if face book was to disappear right off the Internet it would be the hottest talking phenom out there, i think my reaction would be that its very boring with out face book but no where near to reacting as if the world was ending. I actually think that it might be a good thing for everyone to get a break from it. Face book was one of the smartest idea's invented out there by far, it has everything beat.

Social Networking

My first experience with social networking was msn, absolutely everyone had it and that was the "new cell phone" before everyone had cell phones everyone had msn and that's how you communicated with all your friends. But now the new social networking is all about face book and cell phones, to make plans or talk to someone or even share what your doing in your life its all done over the common the cell phone and face book, now they have even made cell phones so you can atomically take a picture and send it over your phone to face book or even across the world within a matter of seconds.  I believe that most of these social networking sits and utensils are not being used properly because, now all you hear about is people posting inappropriate things all over the Internet. Even all bullying now is done threw the social networking communications because, everyone has become to wimpy and adapted to hiding behind a computer or a cell phone to cyber bully someone else, i think that the world would be allot easy er/happier and simpler if these social networks were not created.

My first flattning experince

My first flattening experience was when, we were taught about how McDonald's drive threw windows there orders were not only taken by the people working inside of McDonald's but, the orders were being taken from people who could be across the world, this is called outsourcing, this is something that intrigued me. The ten flattners are .. Collapse of the Berlin wall, Netscape, Work flow software,Outsourcing,off shoring also there is Open source,Supply-chaining,In sourcing,Informing and The steroids. Another experience was when we went to Mexico and before you get on the plane you are able to check in online before you board the plane.  You are able to do any of these anywhere at any time. I think that home sourcing is something allot of people do not realise is out there, i sure didn't until i was just told. Its definitely something people forget about easily and don't realise when they are ordering from McDonald's or calling for reservation's. I think home sourcing is an upgrade and pretty cool.
