For my new slide I have decided to change it completely. I wanted it to be more creative so that’s what I did. I kept the quote the same. Instead of having the background blue I changed it to black. It’s because I feel like the black background makes everything stand out more instead of the blue. I also added a picture of New York because that’s the place where I grew up and was born in. What I learned was be more creative and have a little something about yourself.
After getting feedback from my peers(including Miss Hull) I learned that my message was spot on and that it was a very powerful message I conveyed through my slide . It was just that I needed to make the message a bit more obvious, because some of my peers did not really catch on to the message through my slide. While some may have caught the message I still wanted to make my message more obvious to those who did not really catch it, because I can see where they would be coming from if I looked from their point of view when I had presented my first slide. I deleted the speech bubble with the writing because It was not really necessary to have and nobody could read the text anyway. I deleted a few pictures off of this slide because I had way too many pictures which made my slide distracting. I decided to change it to the format I have now because it fits better with the message I am trying to convey through this slide, and makes it more obvious to what my message is. I am really glad I decided to change what I changed and I think it may have helped in the beginning with my first slide if I had done the same research. It is really important to know exactly what you're doing. My slide turned out good the first time but I did not do any research while I was making it so it could have turned out better. I think if I had done the research the connection between the way I designed my slide and my message I was trying to convey could have connected together better the first time. Now given feedback, done research, and made changes I think both my slide and my message connect much better.
I learned a lot during this process. I learned that sometimes taking the simple route truly does make everything easier. I also learned that a lot of thought goes into slide design, and I never knew that it was so complex. Most importantly, I learned that it is important to do the research your teacher provides you with, because they’re giving it to you for a reason. When I went into creating my slide, I really tried to take into account the tips that the websites gave us. I decided to change everything about my slide. I chose a more inviting background and really made an effort to incorporate symmetry into my slide.
