VVP Reflection 

 

Now that we have completed our VVP assignment, I believe that I gained more skills than I thought I would have on day 1. I learned a lot about research, the Second Life program, and many things that go into film making. The biggest thing I took away from participating in VVP was knowing that technology can be used to bring awareness to a topic. With film, we didn't just lecture the audience with tons of information. Instead we created a story and used technology to its full potential to bring awareness to climate change. As a result of watching the film, I would like the viewers to learn that climate change is something real and it affects thousands, if not more people. I would also like the viewers to realize that youth made this film. We came up with the topic, we created the script, and this shows that youth can be a part of making changes in our world.

The skills I developed in VVP help with my understanding of team of work and that you can not always do things on your own. Sometime you need that extra help to get that project down the right way. Also to listen to your peers and take consideration of what they have to say because it might be important. So do not be rude and respect the safe space rule. That is really important. My biggest take away from this program is that I learn how to make a virtual movie with avatars and some cool facts about filming and tricks of the trade such as the 180 degree rule. This film was made to inform all the people in the world about the crisis we all face (health affects from climate change) because we are all one people no matter the race or place you were born. We all need to come together and shape the right and clean future for our next generations to come. 

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.

The program will be used a one of the early beta sites for the Global Kids and the Hive NYC Learning Network badging systems.
