Prezi Team 2 Reflection

Improved Essays
Introduction
This is a reflection of Team 2’s, team work and creation of a Prezi that gives a valid outline on the subject of learning styles and my personal input into the teamwork and the presentation. This reflection addresses elements of teamwork and how these elements operated in Team 2. I also address the strategies I would use in future team work situations.

Team Rating
Team 2 has created a presentation using Prezi that has validity on the subject of learning styles and provided a user friendly platform for presenting the topic. I would give our final Prezi project and our team work a 7 out of ten. I believe that the factors that contributed to our level of success and how effectively we worked as a team was our team attitude, team

Although our team had particular roles that were shared that everyone contributed to, team worker, innovator, completer and implementer.
I personally contributed as a team worker through encouraging other team members, was involved in regular communication and displayed a cooperative attitude (Davies & Kanaki, 2006). Notably, emailing students that had not joined the team, also providing regular team encouragement and commiserating for example “Nothing further to add at the moment just wanted to say GO TEAM” and “Glad its [sic] not only me (having trouble)” (Nester, 2015).
My involvement as an innovator consisted of contributing new ideas to team 2 (Hartley, 2012). An instance of this involvement was contributing the idea of voting on our team’s topic to make the decision easier and to avoid debate (Nester, 2015).
As a contributor to the completer role I assisted with editing contributions and refining references to develop the consistency of our final work (Carson & Isaac, 2005). I used editing software and knowledge to give feedback such as ‘You will need an in-text citation for this info… possibly (Timmy, 2015) for the author or (Education environments, 2015)’ (Nester,

In the future I would initiate the assigning roles much earlier in the process. I felt it was not all that important in the beginning of our collaboration, but as we got further into our work I found it was vital for successful teamwork that we all had personal roles and objectives. I would also suggest a platform or assigned time for feedback on a regular basis. I found that problems or issues were not expressed until later in talks and then it was harder to resolve. My system would be to implement a weekly or daily roundup of feedback (depending on the project timeframe) to resolve this issue (Albert & Fetzer, 2005). My final strategy for my future team work specifically online, would be to form strong bonds with team members. In the team creation I would suggest, for example to share a story or a piece of information about your personal self to form stronger bonds to the team. This will create an awareness of others and a sense of community which will influence increased input to the team (Wellman,

    This is despite having organisational skills involving a dedicated attitude, setting goals, taking breaks and separating tasks into manageable pieces (McKay, 2017). Initially, I challenged myself by limiting time during weekly activities, which inflicted exam edginess and was therefore unproductive. Meanwhile, measuring the length of time I required to complete a task gave me a motivational aim to compete with, similar to a game. This improvement was insightful however not completely fulfilling, causing me to research academic writing. I found a consistent view, as Eidman-Aadahl (2013) believed; writing is a skill that improves with practice, awareness of purpose and audience.…

    I think that a path to better assess the contribution of each member should be useful, even if everybody agreed upon and collaborated to the final work, that could have been better developed and more carefully revised if there was a positive climate of collaboration. I am available for a meeting to examine in depth the case if required. However, I have just written in depth the appraisal as I think that a real understanding of the group dynamics is important and learning objectives of the assignment should comprehend team working…

    I’ve always had trouble writing multiple different rough drafts for one final assignment but the separate due dates and many comments from my professor made everything less stressful. By taking in all of the constructive criticism and using them to be better, I’ve definitely grown in this area and think it will help me in the long run when I’m a teacher. By having these skills, I’ll be better prepared for when I am observed and given feedback and my lessons and teaching…

    This is exceptionally true with the last leg of the project, the power point, and the irritation it spurred. I personally could have engaged my group mates earlier than Sunday to make sure that the assignment was complete instead of waiting until the last minute. Due to it being the weekend before a Holiday, personal obligations held me back and I slacked on my group assignment communications even though in the end I felt confident in my work. I believe with this newfound experience I can learn from my own actions and flaws and those of others to better prepare for a future project. Any situation approached diplomatically may overcome obstacles allowing everything to work out in the end.…

    I continued to make more corrections to the solution based on the committee’s review comments. I laid down a new approach ( test driven development) for creating the model faster and better rather than following the conventional way. The entire team liked my new idea but weren’t sure if it would work. I made a bold decision and requested the team to start the work using the new approach. After one week of development, we saw significant progress which we wouldn’t have achieved through the conventional approach.…

    I would be more proactive and initiate communication amongst the team. I both post in the discussion board and then email every member with my contact information along with a Google Doc of the assignment. To minimize the challenges of scheduling meetings, I would also tell everyone the times I am available to meet during the initial contact and ask everyone to do the same. This way we can decide early on what our schedule as a team is and plan our meetings accordingly. Though this assignment was not without its challenges, it was a valuable learning experience that I would look forward to doing again in the…

    We came together for a goal of receiving a high grade on our assignments, and fully prepared and performed in hope of receiving them. We have yet to reach the adjourning stage, but I am sure that will come soon. We were also good at sharing information with others, as discussed in chapter four - Preparing to Collaborate. We worked on developing a positive climate where we all felt comfortable and valued. We always encouraged quieter people to participate and give their opinion when they haven’t spoken up on a situation.…
