Re: Metamorphosis

Thank you for the positive feedback! I'm glad that you found this project interesting, as I hoped many would. It wasn't a very long project, and much of it was piecing together things as opposed to actual research, but it taught me so many things about our world. Again, thank you for the great feedback, it is greatly appreciated.

Re: Metamorphosis

Hi there Jess: Have you seen the YouTube video by Celeste Hadlee on how to be a better conversationalist? I would recommend looking it up. It is very informative and speaks to some of the same things you are reflection on. Ms. Knittel at LFAS shared it with me and I loved it. What intrigued me was that she encourages us "to really listen" to others and to be "prepared to be amazed." She also said that when she has put this into practice she has "very rarely been disappointed". I found this ...

Re: Metamorphosis

I think some of these points you made are fantastic. I'm really impressed! I love how you related it to the future, and how learning about this issue may critically change how others view the world. I wonder if you're considering being a catalyst for this awareness, and spreading this knowledge. Obviously Butterfly Effect is an exemplary way of expressing new knowledge, but if you're interested in spreading this further, and helping, as you phrased it, change their "views of certain...

Re: Metamorphosis

It is very nice to see people learning from their projects, changing their ways of thinking to the better and sharing their learning with other people. This is the whole point of Butterfly effect. Following through your project,I have learnt a lot about what you talked about 'not judging other people'. Learning is a dynamic process and many things have to be brought together so that one can learn effectively.Research and implementation have to be combined with diligence and hard work. I'm...

I really like your topic about dreams because it has always been of interest to me. Something that I was wondering is if there is a possibility for dreams to be controlled by technology in the future. Anyways, I am looking forward for more research from you

It's interesting to notice how the more you record your dreams the easier it is to remember them. This has been a really cool project to follow, have you thought of conducting any experiments or creating any projects out of the knowledge you've obtained through your research?

Re: Metamorphosis

Love you're new questions! Just a suggestion; you may find it easier to remember you're dreams if you keep a dream journal or just say a brief recap of you're dreams out loud once you wake up. Having first hand experiences with you're dreams (that you can remember) may help you out with understanding you're dreams.

Following this project has been really cool! There is so much information that is easy to connect and understand. In psychology last year we studied dreaming, and a huge thing we focused on was lucid dreaming. Lucid dreaming is the ability to consciously observe and/or control your dreams. It be really cool to see some research on this topic! Here are some links if you decide to look into this! http://www.world-of-lucid-drea...-lucid-dreaming.html https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucid_dream ...

Re: Metamorphosis-Social Media and Depression

I think that this was a very cool topic, and all of your research is true! I think that everyone should know how hurtful it can be when someone comments something rude on social media. It can effect people more than we think. I think that if everyone knows what we know, people would be more respectful and think about what they are posting on social media. I really liked reading your research, and good luck on your next project!

Re: Metamorphosis-Social Media and Depression

I think your project was really successful, Emily! A lot of the stuff that you have talked about in your posts I believe is really important, as you said in this summary. I wonder if it may be a good idea to use your new research from this project to spread more awareness about depression and social media. I've found people often take others more seriously when they talk about important issues with research to back them up. Maybe even making a youtube video to put on Facebook, or something...

I just wanted to add my own idea to this, although it may seem obvious. I think one of the reasons why people may be more willing to share their thoughts online is the anonymity of it. They may share with a complete stranger who's judgement isn't clouded by personal connection, and can look at it with objectivity. I know that people with depression don't usually like talking about it, or getting special treatment or pity form people in their life. That's at least what I've noticed, and it...

Metamorphosis-Nutrition and Cognition

Desi Chek (Alumni-LFAS) ·
Sorry about the awkward transition between my projects. I think the reason this project is so important to me is because nutrition is a part of everyone’s lives, including my own. We make conscious decisions everyday about what we are going to put into our bodies; this project has taught me that those choices affect many aspects of our lives. I also learned that these choices not only affect my own well being, but also the well being of the environment. Going into the project, I knew that...

I have been working on my dreams project for quite a while know, and kind of came to a bump in the road. My original question was “How do dreams affect people?” Now I have gone into many different areas of dreams, such as what do they mean? How has culture interpreted dreams? What sleeping disorders affect dreaming? What is a dream vs a nightmare? My question has changed a little more general to what are dreams? I have learned so much about dreams and how important they are. I always knew I...

I have learned a lot from my project, Why do people enjoy sports so much? In my project I learned a lot of interesting ideas people have about playing sports. What causes people the enjoyment of playing a sport continuously? How do you continue to play a sport after a serious injury? These were a few of the questions I had. With my conclusion I found that there are so many reasons why people do or dont play a sport. I learned that I cant automatically hate a sport, I have to give it a...

Metamorphosis

Here is my reflection for my project on pessimism, optimism, and realism. This project has impacted my thinking in many different ways. For starters, I have learned to not judge people as much before I know who they really are and what they have had to deal with. It has also made me think about our society in general. I realized that we do label people way too much, which leads to things like cliques in schools, sports, and the world in general. My project has made me think about myself to,...

They also help their owners in many ways, including being more active, and being happier. Before this project I always thought that dogs were amazing animals, but now I think that they are even more amazing animals in many...

Metamorphosis-Social Media and Depression

Here is my reflection for my project on social media and its effects on depression. Enjoy. My project research has not completely changed my thinking of social media affecting depression, so much as reinforced some of what I predicted.

Through this project I learned possible signs and characteristics of people with depression. I saw the effects that depression has on the...

Hey Finley, I like your topic and I also find it fascinating all of the different aspects involved in visual storytelling (Chiefly Filmmaking). You have to respect how difficult it is to make a film if not from experience at least by the complexity noticed in watching it. I think you would really like the site "Cinematography 101". They have great explanations about basic movie making as well as some advanced techniques. Hope you like this site and find what you're looking for!

Metamorphosis: "What is Intuition"

My inquiry question for this cycle is "What is intuition?" Learning about this topic is fascinating because there is so much that we still don't know about our own intuition. When I began my research, I held a subconscious bias that intuition was only active in professionals whose occupation revolved around certain aspects of criminology. However, as each research round passed, my way of thinking changed. I now understand that intuition, whether considered to be a personality trait or rapid...

What is Strong Artificial Intelligence and how close are we to developing it? - Metamorphosis

Hi everyone, This cycle, my inquiry question was "What is Strong Artificial Intelligence and how close are we to developing it?" . There are many ways in which this research impacted my thinking.

At first, I thought that it would be easy to differentiate between Strong and Weak AI since Strong AI would be intelligent and Weak AI would not be intelligent. After doing some research, I realised how...

I have to say that this research has really changed the way that I view explaining topics.
