Writing Prompt #1: Shoe Life

Oh goody! Finally some of these lovely writing prompts. Many of my peers have done a few and I thought it would be a fun addition to my iFolio since it has been lacking posts recently. Or rather, lacking creative ideas - that's what writing prompts are known for, right? Let's see how long I can keep this series going. Anyway, for those who don't know what writing promptsĀ are, they are simple phrases, images, or ideas that get one's creative juices jazzed up. There are a wide range of writing prompts; they come…Read more …

Managing Our Waste: Composting

One of the ways CDNIS (Our school) manages its waste is by composting. Today, our class visited Ms Daniels' (Science or biology teacher, I presume?) classroom to learn more about this way of managing our waste.

Safe Chat PREZI Summative Assessment

This is my PREZI summative assessment on How We Express Ourselves. I created a PREZI presentation on my make up communication tool called Safe Chat. I created this PREZI to show the problems on current networking sites, and the advantages of Safe Chat. I made my fonts large and easy to read. I also posted a lot of photos and a diagram. Perhaps I can reduce the amount of words and turn them into jot notes that I can refer to, instead of having a big paragraph of words that I read out…Read more …
