Teamwork is defined as, cooperative or coordinated effort on the part of a group of people acting together as a team or in the interests of a common cause. Within our website project we have four people working together: Cesar, Enrique, Orlando, and I. Our website project is based upon, technology over time. Our topic was chosen within my group, we decided that we wanted to do something different, something we can all learn from. We decided to be consistent with the amount of effort needed to be put into this project; my group and I agreed to work as one to get the project done on time.
The organization of this project was based upon a timeline. We talked as a group about the different items we wanted to show within our website and decided to divide our ideas equally into different pages; computers, cell phones, television, cars, music devices, cameras, airplanes, electricity control, VHS, DVD, transportation, and safety systems. The timeline helped to assign different pages to people within our group. We all got an equal amount of pages to complete within the website, we all started working right away, trying to visualize our actual website.
Each of my team members each bring something good into our group. Enrique for example, he’s a very positive team member, always brings the group together whenever we’re stressed out about something, and always keeps the group positive. Orlando on the other hand, brings very good ideas into the project. He has the ability to think outside the box and provide great ideas. Cesar contributes his great knowledge in computer programming. Coming down to me, Jamie, I consistently worry about the time and quality of our project overall. I make sure the work gets done, and make sure that work is divided equally among the group.
Overall, I strongly feel that each of us bring something to the group. I think that it’s always important to get the opportunity to work with new people. This allows you to share with people you don’t normally work with. Sometimes working with new people can be hard, but time helps make it better. This also gives the chance to learn more about one another and find other sides of people that aren’t normally seen before. I feel that this website project is very important to our semester grade, and I feel that all my group members think the same way. Therefore, we are all putting in our part to perform the best that we can in order to receive a fair grading upon the work that we perform.
Our group is all basically from the same backgroud but each have there own differences. We all attend the same school and liive in Chicago, but are all from different neighbnorhoods. Jamie lives in the west side of Chicago, while Orlando lives more south, Enrique lives in Humboldt Park, then we have Cesar who lives in Logan square. Jamie loves soccer, and finds it to be her favorite past time. Orlando loves the sport of baseball; he even plays in a league with his father as his coach. Enrique likes to play video games and is more layed back. Then, Cesar likes to mess with computers and other forms of technology. In this project Cesar took the role as leader, and since he has a passion for technology we titled our project “technology over time.” Our group name was N-tech, which basically described our project. Since we all go to a computer science charter school, we all already had a background in using computer projrams such as dreamweaver, flash, and fireworks so we used it to our advantage. Throughout our website are different images and animations that we created using both flash and fireworks. Then of corse the whole website was made using dreamweaver. Having allready known about these computer programs helped out with the making process of the site, but since the site had to be soo big, we had complications with connecting everything. Enrique was in charge of the toolbar. He enjoys using computers and messing around with different programs, but throughout the project had problems with making rollovers and connecting all the pages. But with the help of his fellow team mates and Coach Ms. Sanchez, he got it all to work out. Orlando has a gift in his writing abilities and used them to for the website. When ever we needed help with vocabulary and attreving information, he was the go to man. Then Jamie was basically like the glue of the group. She made sure all the deadlines were meet and finished. When ever Cesar was absent Jamie would take of as the group leader. She also made and fixed all the headlines for the pages on macromedia flash. In the end we finished the whole website but not after a huge headache because of all the deadlines that had to be meet. We are all glad that it worked out for the better at the end.
