For our communication assessment on colonization in Indonesia me and my group members, Aimee and Annisa made an iMovie to communicate our knowledge to other people in our class. The time frame that our group was looking at was the Dutch’s colonial empire and their occupation which happened around 1596-1902.
The Dutch Colonial Empire is an interesting topic to look at. Being Indonesian, I felt that it is important for us to know our own history and the Dutch is an important part of our journey to independence. Previously, I have done an in-depth research about this topic. Starting from how Indonesia was found by a Dutch Explorer named Cornelius de Houtman to Indonesia’s resistance against the Dutch.

I think our iMovie is really well-done and my group also succeed in making the topic more interesting to learn about. The information in our movie was also relevant. We listened to our classmates’ feedbacks and also Mr. Rick’s. Mr. Rick told us that it would be better if we have managed our time better so we would be able to prepare appropriate costume and make it even more interesting and memorable to the audience and we also get positive feedbacks about how our voices are strong and very clear in the movie.
From my presentation, the main thing that I really need to improve at is time management. Because in my opinion this project can be presented better if we have managed our time effectively and communicate between our team members well. This will be a lesson that I can learn from in the future when doing my other projects.
