This year, our Digital Citizenship class began working on a project created by Google called “Genius Hour”. The goal was to have students research and learn more about something of their own interest. The main topic of my presentation was “Chocolate” because, obviously, it is one of my favorite treats. At first, I was quite interested in doing it but my interest began to fade as I moved along. I spent two thirds of my work time at school when we were given class time, and one third at home. My presentation did not go as I planned, and that is something I have to work on. My topic was a bit broad and I didn’t have much information on what I decided to focus on. Based on my effort and learning, my grade wouldn’t be so different from what my teacher gave me. My topic was more for a personal interest rather than a school assignment, which the whole purpose about it was to impact/help my peers and the community. For my next Genius Hour project, I am planning on putting more effort and thought into my research and work, in order to enjoy this assignment and have a better grade. Some topics I already have in mind are:
- Black Lives Matter Association and the race situation in the States.
- Modern Parenthood
