Judging Anti-bullying websites.

This website was targeted for children, because it has a lot of games, pictures and uses simple language that is easy to understand. It is also made in a happy mood with a lot of colors and stuff.

Blog on BullyinG
This website is made for people ranging from kids to teenagers. It doesn't have any games or videos, but a lot of cartoons. The language used is still easy to understand, but has more meaning put into it.

This website has a lot of features. It has four modes. For Cool stuff, for adults, what bullying is and what you can do. The language follows the same patters as the one before.

This website is made to be for reaserch only. It has a couple of pictures, but there wasn't a lot of design put in.

Investigation on Anti-bullying Campaign

Bullying has many characters.

  • Bully
  • Target
  • Witnesses
  • Innocent
And each one of them has a roll to play. Bullying can be done in many ways and in many places. It usually happens in schools and is done to make someone feel bad or ashamed. Bullying can range from teasing to physical violence. There are a lot of solutions to this, the easiest one is to tell an adult and they will give you advise on what to do. Fighting back doesn't work well, because you could get hurt or in trouble.

Final Evaluation on project

My project works well. All of the multimedia works properly and it has all the things I planned for it. I wish we could have used some time at the start to look at the tutorials and then we could use it better. Some of the stuff we had to guess or ask a friend that knew, so that slowed down the process. Overall it was easy and worked well.

One of the hardest parts of the project was the investigation stage. Sometimes we would spend a lot of time researching and most of the stuff that came up was either too basic, too complicated or irrelevant.

Designing was very easy, we just drew a plan of what we wanted our website to look like and then we started making it on the computers.

We skipped the plan stage and continued creating the website.
