Making progress as a team

I think I’ve come pretty far this year. When I first came to What’s the Story? I didn’t know how to make a film, or what I wanted it to be about, or how to work any of the equipment. Now I can keep track of what needs to be done, complete my work effectively, and learn from my mistakes. I still need help with a lot of the technology, but I’m definitely learning. I have learned to be an effective teammate and I will be able to apply what I’ve learned to other areas in life. I feel like I’ve been a pretty good teammate. I’m aware of other people’s thoughts and feelings, and understand that it’s hard to get everything done. I’m lucky to be part of the strong team I’m in. We work well together, are patient with one another, and our skill sets balance well. So far I think I have contributed a good bit in choosing how to present our information to our particular audience. We want to draw educators and administrators in by showing emotional stories that tug on their heartstrings. We’re starting with a set of quotes that will shock teachers and make them realize that something has to change. My team has communicated very well. We keep up with our weekly hangouts, and email each other with any questions.

I’d like to work on getting to know the technology better. I’ve learned a lot already, but I still have a long way to go. I want to be able to navigate WeVideo easily and on my own, and get more comfortable with the cameras. Right now I understand the basics but I’m always afraid I’ll brake something, and I want to feel more confident. I will practice using WeVideo and I’ll try to get more practice using the cameras. I’m sure my dad can help with the different parts and ways to move things. I don’t really need any support, but I’m glad I have Miles in my group in case I need any help with the technology.
