Week 11  This is the last class of this module. All of the groups made presentations in SL to talk about their topic. Unexpectedly, we chose the wrong place. The place with the recycle system belongs to private! It shocked us. I finished my part of the presentation successfully. 
This class has finished, but it is of great value. It is my first time to leave my hometown to make a group and work together. What's more, the topics are all interesting. As a fan of technology, I found that there are so many things to study deeply. Not only the technology itself, the background and culture behind it also worth for us to study.
Week 10
During this week, we were preparing our presentation. We found a place in SL where looks similar to our topic, which has a recycling system. In the class, John taught us how to use SL to show images to do a presentation. After discussion, we decided to make the presentation with Google slide.
We built two slides, one of which is used to show our images, and the other one was written on the words we will say. I added a link of a video on Youtube about Chinese traditional Design. We practised for the last time.
Week 9
This week we talked about walking away. In an era of rapid development of technology, more and more dizzying new technologies are born. Some people follow all the new technologies, some people, however, fare the new technologies. Like the film The Matrix, we don't know whether these new technologies are good for human or not. However, it is definite that we should all emphasis on technology. Only if we care about the technologies, we can use the most convenient way to solve problems in modern life.

After class, our group practised the presentation. We deleted some long sentences and added some images in the slide to make it easier to read. And we wrote what we should say in the presentation.
Week 8 This week we talked about privacy in the class. It is definite that we all have privacy both in real life and virtual life. It is illegal that some companies randomly steal user data, even if they say it is virtual.  
During this week's meeting, I could explain my opinions more frequently than before. The first reason is that I am not so nervous as before because my group mates are all friendly, and the second reason is that my English was improved during these classes. We practised our slide and they helped me to find some of the mistakes in my slides. That does great help to me.
Week 6  What is interesting that I found in SL is that some people are immersed in this game. Same as its name Second Life, it just likes our another life in the virtual world. There are most of the things we can see real life. We can do many things that can be considered in SL. A film last year called Ready Player One built a virtual world us VR technology. It looks like a more advanced SL. 
During this week, our group are still working on our slide. We improved it and I added some of Chinese opinions it.
Week 5  In this class, John talked about tools and human in the class. It was an interesting topic. It makes me think of another well-known game called Minecraft. In that game, it simulates the protagonist using everything on an island to make tools and survive. 
After class, our group had a meeting in SL. We exchanged our ideas, and they helped me to understand my work next time. And then, I improved my part of the slide.
Week 4
During this week, our group leader Jenna used Facebook to contact us about our work. We decided to make a Google slide to show our opinions. At first, I could not understand how to use that ( because of some reason, we can not use Google in China). Sandra sent me an address and told me what should I do. She told me she also comes from another country, and at first, she could not speak English as well. It is surprising to hear that because I thought her English is very good.  At last, I finished my part of the slide and upload it with her help.
