Personal reflection (ADMT lesson)

I have learnt quite a lot during today's ADMT lesson, I have learnt about the different proposed solutions that each group did, some of them were just plain genius(exaggeration) while others, not so much.
Q1.What are the 3 key takeaways from today’s lesson?

A : I have learnt quite a few values on team work. Each group must have the work spread out as evenly as possible, so that it will not be all on one person's shoulders to bear. I have learnt about procrastination as well, we should not delay things until the last minute, we will be likely not to produce a piece of quality work as we are rushed and tend to leave details out. I have learnt about the things that need to be prepared beforehand like the questions for the survey,etc.

Q2. Name 2 concepts that you have learnt today pertaining to design and describe why is it important in design?

A:I have learnt that one of the key to design is to make sure we had a clear goal in mind and set ambitious goals. " If we aim for the moon and not reach it, we will end up in the stars." That quote is quite true, if we set goals ambitiously we will work harder and achieve better results. The other key to design is to keep the target audience in mind, that way we can workaround the problem so that it can appeal better to the audience.

Q3. What is the 1 interesting thing that you have learnt today?

A: I have learnt that we must give necessary comments that actually make sense so that we can make the idea even better than it originally was. Giving unnecessary is just a waste of time, after all time is money.
