Goals for 2017

by Adrian on January 11, 2017

  1. Go to the following website and watch one or two videos of teachers explaining his/her challenge for 2017.
  2. Think about a non-academic/non-school related challenge for the new year.
    1. The goal can be small as reading new books, learning to bake or playing an instrument in public.
    2. The goal can also consist of teaching others a skill.
    3. The goal can also be very big like learning a new skill or obtaining a certification.
  3. You will need to “plan” your goals on your iFolio. (This is not meant to be a long process 10-15 minutes). Here is my ifolio as an example
    1. Create a new post.
    2. State the new skill or challenge and explain the desire to pursue this skill or challenge
    3. Do some quick research to find some specific details as to the skills, requirements, or certifications that you need to acquire to achieve your goal. You are encouraged to use visuals instead of being text heavy.
    4. Research out how you can obtain those skills, requirements, certifications, etc. Post these results.
    5. Create a timeline to achieve your goal.  
    6. Finally tag your post with  #newskill #challenge
  4. Share and discuss your responses as a class.

Through this year, I want to find a new hobby which can improve my mood. This is because I believe I need to explore more activities. Looking back at last year most of my free time was spent on sports and video games. Thus, I thought it would be interesting to further understand myself better.


Theory of Knowledge –

Name two AOKS and how they are different


  • Religion
  • Natural Sciences

The two areas of knowledge I will be talking about are Religion and Natural Sciences. I believe that these two AOKS are very different in their own ways because some of the information contradict each other. For example, religion is heavily believing in a special figure which they call a “god”. There are many different religions in the world, however all the major ones believe in a figures that controls, creates or have super natural powers. Also, not only that, there is a place called the after life where one will enter heaven or hell. However, this is where Natural Sciences is heavily different from Religion. In natural science a famous astrophysics scientist named sir Steven Hawking, proved mathematically that there is no space in the whole universe that will allow a place where heaven and hell can exist. Thus if you heavily believe in science, the religion facts are to certain extents not true.
