Do Students Really Study?

Is it possible for a student to get a good night sleep and finish their homework with all the distractions around them? According to NBC News even when on “best behavior” students can’t concentrate on homework for more than 2 minutes because of distractions. You can see in the opening shot of the story, a student begins working on homework but ultimately doesn’t finish it because of all of the distractions of having roommates, technology, and a short attention span. Students juggle with trying to multitask activities end up giving up because of their short attention spans, and then move onto the next task.

Roommates can often be common distractions for students. Especially in this case, when there are multiple girls living in the residence. Technology distractions are some of the most common as well. A study found that people who are distracted by technology are score 20 percent lower on a standard cognition test. This patten keeps continuing for our generation. According to Gloria Mark at the University of Illinois California Irvine, says office workers only get 11 continuous minutes to work on a task before interruption. This video perfectly displays how distractions cause students to not complete work, and go to bed without completing work

Assignment 2 Reflection Garvey

This is my breakfast, a part of my morning routine

This is my breakfast, a part of my morning routine

Well, before editing I thought this assignment was going perfectly. I didn’t have any issues shooting stills, and I set up my shots like a story of my daily morning routine from beginning to end. However, I found when I got to class that I had apparently been a little confused about the requirements of the assignment. I thought that the photo story with sound was only supposed to be used when it added a powerful effect. However, I was sadly mistaken. So, I had to work with what I had. It was my error, and I will know better next time that nat sound is ALWAYS needed! Other than that, overall I had a lot of fun with this assignment. Im enjoying getting to add my own personality into my shots. I’m very much looking forward of what else is to come!

This is my breakfast, a part of my morning routine

This is my breakfast, a part of my morning routine

I decided to do something that envisions what a day in the life is like for me. I thought the person way to portray that was my morning routine before class. I started off with my dreaded alarm, which is what forces me to get out of bed. Next, I like to keep my room clean so I did a before and after of my bed un-maid and then my bed maid. I transformed then to my bathroom routine. Here you could envision my process of washing my face, brushing my teeth, and taking a shower. After that process, I always check the news in the morning. You could see my visit to NBCNews.com. Finally I closed off with eating breakfast, and then you could see my backpack  as the last shot to show the viewer that the morning process ended, and walking to class was next on the agenda.

Assignment 1 Garvey

Nature still

Nature still

Before this assignment.. I wasn’t really sure what to expect. I thought it would be pretty self explanatory.. Boy was I wrong. I had camera difficulties, causing me to have to read the manual for an extended period of time. After shooting, I realized without a tripod, for me it was almost nearly impossible to get the camera to stop shaking with a freehand even when I didn’t breathe. I have some work to do on that. Editing I had some issues, but I learned throughout every mistake. I am not going to lie, my anxiety was absolutely through the roof. I was worried about making the deadline after my technical difficulties. It was a great learning experience. I’m excited to continue learning/ My video can be viewed here.
