Homework for September 27, 2018

Dear Team Thinkers,

We started our day today by discussing your learnings about LOI-1: What determines our beliefs and values. Then, we moved on to explore the second LOI (How and why we choose our role models); here you participated in an activity wherein you jotted down various “Wow” things about your Role Model. Later on, you continued with the Data Handling SA and selected the portfolio pieces for UOI (Digital Media).

[Homework]

  • Add the portfolio piece comments in the Spreadsheet. Be mindful to follow the example shared with you (in the sheet).

See you all tomorrow!
