In February 28th 2018, me and my parents did a student led conference to understand how autonomy, mastery, purpose impacts motivation. It was fun expressing ourselves to our parents and let them experience the story of my life as a studio 5 student because they can enjoy wht does it feel like to be motivated. These are the things that happened in the conference.
1. My parents expressed their passion in iMovie.
2. My parents solved the ping pong math problem and the olympic math as well.
3. My parents had a debate with me of saying can robots conquer humans.
What Went Well During the Conference
What went well in the conference is that my mom participated in various activities patiently and effectively because I didn't saw her look at her handphone even once and it felt like she was right into it.
What Questions did my Parents have after the Confrence
After the conference, my parents had a question of how does motivation impacts children to learn because for them, even if they get a new job, something they never tried before, it doesn't feel right for them, but for us if we inquire through new things, we will be interested to it and learn about it to become what we want to be. I think motivation impacts children to learn more than an adult because as an adult, you willl have more serious responsibilities than a child. Therefore, they will have less chances to experience what they're interestedin due to having worries of how are going to earn money and survive.
What Feedbacks did you get from your Parents
As the conference about to finish, I gave my parents a sheet of paper to give me some feedback of how can I improve. My parents wrote two stars and one wishes of how did the conference go in that piece of paper.
Star: I am inquire through new discoveries
Star: I was active when doing activities during the conference.
Wish: My Parents wish I was more serious
I think I can improve on what my parents wished by understanding the rules of different assemblies or celebrations and control my behavior depending on how relevant it is.
What did you want your Parents to See
I wanted to let my parents experience what does it feels like to be interested, determined to something because my parents had never experienced doing what they really want to do due of being busy everyday and going to a company or doing house works which is exhausting and not part of motivation.
How can my Parents help me on my Next Unit
My parents can help me by asking an expert they know outside of school because in the last unit, I struggled and struggled to create a documentary not because I didn't know what to do. It's because I didn't have an expert who had lots of experiences to lead me to success. Therefore, I want somebody with lots of experiences teach me lots of new ways that I can improve.
How can my Parents help me to Improve
My parents can help me to improve by planning what creative things I can add in my documentary because they lived in Korea for 10 years, so I know they have the knowledge, the experience to help me put all of them in action into one piece.
For the conclusion, I hope this conference can lead me to a great start of my unit.
