There are primarily 2 key software tools that you would be learning in Semester 2, namely:

  • Google SketchUp
Please do try to self-learn the basics of the 2 software tools above. For Phun, there are tutorials already done up on their website. Please do have a look at them. You might also be able to pick up some completed examples from YouTube. For SketchUp, there are even more resources available for you. You might want to try to download some free video podcasts from your iTunes, or watch some tutorial videoclips from the SketchUp website, or to look at other tutorials done by other users on YouTube...the choice is really yours.

Please do up a simple room or layout space that shows how you would consider planning to furnish a room so that they are more elderly-friendly. Do explain your submissions with some texts to explain. Submission deadline for this is on the 21st June 2010. Please name your files as follows:

Holiday work - Part 2: Deepening your learning experiences

As part of your research into understanding the elderly, you are tasked to also take video clips, photographs, or any other forms of recordable media to show how the elderly cope with their daily routines. These could include, but not necessarily limited to, every day activities such as: cooking a simple meal, pouring water from a flask, going to the market to buy groceries, going down the stairs, exercising, etc.

As a follow up, each one of you would do a podcast or a writeup of your observations and interviews with the elderly, caretaker, nurses or anyone who work with the elderly. Find out from them what are the problems that the elderly faces. Look for opportunities to observe and interview them such as at the senior citizens corners, void decks, hawker centers, etc.

Note that you are highly encouraged to select a range of elderly folks to observe so as to give you a broader perspective of them.

You are to post your work on your personal ADMT blog every Wednesday of the week during the June holidays. (2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd June 2010). Name your post: Elderly Challenge - Observation 1, Elderly Challenge - Observation 2, etc. You are also tasked to go to other students’ personal ADMT Blog to comment on their posts.

ADMT Lesson 1 Environment-Tor Ming En

Our selfish acts will, of course, bring about the Earth's doom. We have to start changing our attitude in order to prevent this from occurring. We should start to conserve our natural resources like trees, freshwater, etc. I think we can stop pollution by wasting lesser resources. We can also reuse, reduce and recycle everything. We can help save the Earth by cutting down on our wastage and protecting our pleasant environment. I think the main problem our planet is facing is the global warming. Most people understand that carbon dioxide and methane are the main gases that contribute to global warming. Since cows produce a lot of methane gas, we should cut down on beef, thus resulting in lesser cows which can potentially produce methane. We should also construct more environmental-friendly buildings that converts carbon dioxide to oxygen.

Recycle, recycle, and recycle. If we all do a small part, like turning the water off when we're brushing our teeth or clean out a jar of jelly and keep loose change in it or just turning off the lights in rooms that no one is in or maybe ridding a bike to school/work and if you're not a fan of biking, make a carpool with your friends! There are still more that a billion ways to save the planet, and if you want to see your own children grow up on this earth, just do a small part, just a tinny little part once every day and if everyone else does too, slowly but surly, we'll save the planet!

In my opinion, human's selfish ways will destroy the Earth if they do not change. Their disrespect  to mother Earth will cause everyone to lose Earth. So we all must try to do our part in saving Earth. We must also conserve our natural resources do further generations can use them. We should all recycle,reduce and reuse and host campaigns to save earth

ADMT Lesson 1 Environment - Ma Wen An, Joshua

Human Being's selfish acts will surely bring about the Earth's doom. In order to save the Earth, we should not waste natural resources such as wood and paper by reducing the how much of these resources we use. We should also reuse precious resources such as water so we will not waste it. Lastly, we should also recycle items such as paper and aluminium cans so we can still use it again. By recycling, reusing, and reducing, we will be able to reduce the amount of pollution. This way, we will be able to prevent the Earth's doom.

ADMT Lesson 1 Environment- Loh Cheng Ngee

Yes, sooner or later, the Earth will fall thanks to the dominant species-humans. Clearing forests, leaving electrical appliances on and throwing litter into rivers leave the Earth with very little natural resources. Fossil fuels can only last us for another fifty years or even less, now that there are more cars on the road everyday. Moreover, many people know about the problem of global warming, but though they know it can kill in the long run, they are just not caring enough just to take one more step and recycle the things they use. Turning off electrical appliances at the main switch can save a lot of money and fossil fuels, switching to energy-saving bulbs will also help save energy.
