VVP Reflection 

My participation in VVP has taught me to be more prepared for anything. It has changed my behavior and it has also changed my way of seeing things differently. The biggest take away from being a part of the VVP program was not spending time with my baseball team but at the end of the day, being apart of the VVP program was cooler. What I want people to learn about this film is that we all as a team worked very hard on this film. We also showed the health effects of climate change so what I want people to know is that we can heal the world and make it a better place.

Race to the White House Badge Ecology 

Race to the White House is a Global Kids summer program where youth will develop a digital scavenger hunt with gps-enabled devices (geocaching) to create a public activity about the upcoming presidential election and its impact on issues of importance to our community and our country. The program will be used a one of the early beta sites for the Global Kids and the Hive NYC Learning Network badging systems.

Flim Making!!! 

My favorite part about film making is searching for sound effects. I know its wierd but its very fun to figure out what kind of sounds effects we should put in the movies. My favorite part was listening to every sound until you hear the right one. This is fun because some sounds are wierd and funny and it makes you laugh. What I am looking forward about this week is definitely getting paid and also finishing the movie. I can't wait to see the finishing touches of this movie and showing it to  everyone.

Back and Forth Badging!  

Badge mania is in full swing here at Global Kids, and I've been in the midst of all the action! For the past few weeks, I have been working on developing badges for the Virtual Video Project and Race to the White House, getting accustomed to the Hive NYC Badge Stack website, and learning how to create the best possible badges. During the process, I have been sitting in on BadgeStack workshops and meetings held by the OLP team to teach their peers about the badging system, which has given me tremendous insight into the system as well. Through these meetings, many of my own questions about badging have been answered, in addition to increasing my knowledge of the system as a whole.
