Wow, this was a lot harder than I thought! For this final post I want to recap everything I have learned over this past semester.
I really wanted to learn how to do some card tricks and think I thought this would be easier….I was very wrong.
It was fun, but took a lot more work and effort than I had thought it would, but I did do lots and I am prtty proud of myself for accomplishing something I had always wanted to do.
I said I was going to do a magic show for my final post, but unfourtunetly I was unable to film it in time so I am going to do a week-by-week recap instead.
The very First post I put up was goals and ideas for my learning project.
Goal: learn 5 card tricks ranging from basic to difficult.
Week 1 was the first offical week of my learning project and I need to start out with the basics.
What I did: 3 false cuts, one basic, one intermediate, and one difficult. All of these I learned and used throughout my other tricks
What I did: First basic trick called The Three Robbers
I also recorded the video on my phone and then edited it in Windows Movie Maker and uploaded it to youtube.
What I did: Learned a new technique called the double lift (I could also do a songle and triple lift)
I used screencastify this time and followed this tutorial on Wikihow
What I did: Learned an intermediate called All the Aces.
I used screencastify again and used this website.
What I did: Leaned a hard trick called the Never Again Trick
I once again used Screencastify but I only videoed mylef and not the screen becuase I was watching this video.
In total I learned 2 techniques (false cuts, and the lifts) and 4 card tricks which I think I did pretty well.
Some unexpected things I learned were:
- Using screencastify
- editing movies
- uploaded videos to Youtube
- Weekly blogging
- Finding cool resources online
I don’t know if I am going to continue with it but it will be fun to practice more and show people when I am a little more confident in it!
