Another Entry from the Dysfunctional Group
This is interesting because I had a whole different experience of the same event. For me, it started out with the introductions and getting to know our group, which was exciting. Getting the materials and then just having to do anything with them, though, was hard for me. I'm still trying to get used to working with so little structure. I didn't really know what was going on with our group that first day. It wasn't until Eric mentioned it, that it really dawned on me that our problem was that we were having trouble doing everything that this class was about: collaborating. I left that class glad to be done. It just hadn't felt right. Coming back this week and picking up with new resolve to work together seemed to work out for our group. Which was awesome. You could really feel us finally connecting as a group. And I was so impressed with the other groups' creativity. The different boxes and sound effects and shadows were all things that I probably could never come up with on my own. Which is just proof of how much of a benefit it is to work with other people. I was skeptical about making shadows in boxes when we first started, but it turned out to be far more interesting that I expected.
