Attached: Assessment 2 Submission 2 – Ebony Taylor
What did I actually achieve with this piece of work?
| The most difficult part for me personally was trying to stay within the word limit which was a maximum of 500 words. Along with this difficulty was to be considerate of what I am writing about in the discussion paper – to be concise and clear.
The straightforward parts were researching – whether it be the research on the influences or emerging technology, once I had a clear idea of what I was writing about the discovery of the information was straight forward.
|How well do I think I achieved the intended learning outcomes for this assignment?
Where could I have improved my achievement?
Why didn’t I improve it at the time?
| I believe I did well, I put in my research and time and took the time to understand clearly what I was doing and going to write.
I could very much improve on writing short and concise and straight to the point rather than write in drastic detail. Next time that is something I will look out to work on.
|What have I got out of doing this assignment?
How have I developed my knowledge and skills?
How do I see the payoff from doing this assignment helping me in the longer term?
| I have achieved knowledge in writing a discussion paper and how to be aware of what I am saying and in what detail. I also developed knowledge in what I researched for submission 2 – Apple Pay.
The industry professional panel from the WIL workshop helped me understand much more about emerging technologies and the effect it has on businesses and consumers.
I believe this assessment in the long term will help me understand how to write and publish short pieces that are still very informative.
|What else have I got out of doing this assignment?
Have I developed other skills and knowledge, which may be useful elsewhere at another time?
If so, what are my emergent learning outcomes from doing this assignment?
| This assessment also helped me to understand the different variations of industries affected in positive or negative ways by different variations of emerging technology.
I am now more knowledgeable on understanding to a deeper value as well as the different writing varieties.
|What was the best thing I did? Why? How do I know?
What worked least well for me? Why did this not work well for me?
| The best thing I believe I did in submission 2 was get my point/aim across. I wrote and edited important points. I proofread myself and I shared with another student in this unit and they helped me adjust anything I needed too.
The word count did not work in my favour, I would have appreciated if the maximum was at least 700 words instead of 500. However with editing and proofreading, I got to under, I just had to take out sentences and paragraphs that I believed were useful.
|Do I feel that my time on this assignment has been well spent? If not, how could I have used my time more sensibly?
Which parts of the assignment represented the time best spent?
Which parts could be thought of as time wasted?
| I believe I spent good valuable time on this assessment, I spent approximately 2 hours researching and approximately 5-6 hours brainstorming, creating, typing and proofreading. However, if I were to do it again I would have started earlier so I was not finishing the day before due date.
I believe the emerging technologies part in submission 2 was well spent as that is the core I believe, of my assessment and I spent the majority of the time researching.
I don’t believe any parts of the overall assessment was wasted time, I spent valuable time on it, more spent than other parts.
