Biotechnology and Ethics

Biotechnology and Ethics, for this assignment we had to watch a ted talk, my group choose “What will humans look like in 100 years?” by Juan Enriquez. We took our own separate notes for this presentation, and then came together as a group and went into further research about the topic of prosthetic’s and future advancements. We had spent almost a week gathering as much research as possible in our time frame. With all of that new research and knowledge we created the power points below.


Core Competent Canadians

What did you know about the Core Competencies before this activity? What did you learn?

Well being the young entrepreneur I am, I knew most of the content that was necessary to complete the work required. I obtained this information from past classes and teachers. In Grade 5 my teacher really pushed out entire class to know close to everything about the core competencies, so because I learned them at age 10,  they have just always been there, and looking back on it I am glad that she really pushed us to know that much. From this past assignment I learned that Drake’s first name is Aubrey, and I happen to think that is pretty cool. I have also learned that Ellen Page is Canadian which is crazy because I thought she was American for the past number of years.

How can your knowledge of the Core Competencies help you in your school life? Personal life?

I think for assignment where you have to look at past assignments and past work it could be helpful because you could try to remember what that time in your life was like, how you were feeling, how you went through life. I think the core competence reflections that teacher make us do in the middle of semester or near the end are good. They give us an opportunity to look back on however many months and see what emotions or core competencies we used the most and how we could better understand how to use other ones so that one day we might become this socially except able person in society. I don’t think you would be that aware that you are using core competencies in your Personal life, unless you are that one person you is so much of an ego maniac that they notice every emotion and overthink everything they do, so unless you are that person that might be the only time that you are aware you are using core competencies.

P.E. Core Competencies

The following is my Core Competencies reflection based on my personal health and wellness plan #1

What are some ways that you use to communicate your learning?

Talking about it in general usually shows your interested and investment in the work your doing. Asking questions to see or show your learning/work is the work your suppose to be learning. Presentations are always something that can easily express your learning and your thoughts on a topic. Even if your thoughts on the project are bitter and showing a lot of non-interest you could always easily make up for it by showing that you still understood the assignment and showed your learning in a constructive and positive format.

What helps you get new ideas?

If i am stuck and out of fun ideas then i usually try to look at what other people have already done and think of how i could make that but make it 10,000 times better. I like doing projects where you get total control, I am not a group project kind of person, I don’t play well with others. I enjoy the project where it is completely different then what everyone else is doing so it stands out and is just beautifully beautiful. Basically what helps me get new ideas is looking at past work that i found creative and fun and trying to build from that.
