Inquiry what did I do today?


Where am I now?

Right now I am looking up why we want to space travel.

  • Finding 5 discoveries in space.

  • What has space travel changed in our world today?

Where do I want to be at 3pm

  • I want to have found at least 3 of those topics but continue to look for more at home for tomorrow.

  • Plus written about what has space travel changed in our world today.

Where am I actually at 2:45 pm

  • I do not know

October Scavenger Hunt

1.a) Learning to cite and source– Scavenger hunt 1.b)

“According to the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary, to “plagiarize” means

  • to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one’s own
  • to use (another’s production) without crediting the source
  • to commit literary theft
  • to present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source.

In other words, plagiarism is an act of fraud. It involves both stealing someone else’s work and lying about it afterward.” What is plagiarism? 

2. a) What does by-nc-sa mean?  By-nc-sa are laws in which you may or may not use in way’s to the original publishers liking’s. “By” means attribution, you must (when using this photo) acknowledged the reader or user that it’s not your work and that it’s someone else’s but your just using the idea or image. “Nc” means noncommercial you cannot make any profit from your work. Unless the original owner of that property gives you the “ok” to do so. “Sa” means share alike, if you alter or change the property in anyway you must keep the same license as it was. b) free digital photos  is pretty good compared to flickr or Compfight. It’s in my opinion the same thing as both of the other site’s.

3. On a road somewhere


“Am I free to copy facts and ideas?”  

“Yes. You are free to report the facts and ideas embodied in another person’s article or web page. Copyright only protects the expression — the combination of words and structure that expresses the factual information — not the facts themselves.”

This means that you can take the idea of the topic. What your not allowed to do is take word for word what he said about that topic or anything about it. What you should do is read through what he/she said, get a good idea of what they said then wright it in your own words about that topic of what they said.





a.       What was the best suggestion or feedback that you got from classmates that commented in the forum? Who posted the comment?

The best suggestion from our classroom was from Shandra.

It was a pretty good presentation. I never knew Solar Power caused Greenhouse gases! That is something I might want to look into later!

However, I wish that you had gone a little more in-deapth with the last few power sources  they seem very interesting, and I’d love to learn more. I also wish that you had wrapped it up a little better; it ended rather abruptly.

But, all in all, I liked the design, and your information interested me. Not bad at all.

b.      Was the feedback useful? Why or why not?

Yes the feed back was useful. She told us what she liked on our topic. Also she told us what we should do to improve on for next time.  It was very useful the way she told us.

2.       Reflection

I thought that Max and I did an okay project. We needed to talk talk a bit more so I don’t talk about what he wrought about and he doesn’t talk about what I wrought about. Also i need to be more confident talking in front of everyone. But all in all i think it went pretty good.

a.      What is a key thing that you learned about inquiry learning? (the process of your inquiry)

I learned that you should have a deeper question or you have to go deeper into your question then just answering your question that you had. Ex: Is the sky blue? you shouldn’t just say yes it is. Your answer should be yes it is, because  the light reflects off the ocean and bounces up into our atmosphere.

b.      What do you need help with in order to improve?

I need to possibly just always stay in topic, at times I drift from the task at hand.
