Your iFolio is a school provided web space that you will use throughout your time at CDNIS. You will use your iFolio to define your learning goals, show your learning journey, reflect on your learning and how you have developed your Approaches to Learning skills, share your best work and celebrate your achievements.
Your iFolio, in time will provide a better picture of who you are as a learner and as an individual. You are therefore highly encouraged to personalize your iFolio. You can start off by selecting one of the 60+ themes available.
Before you start using your new iFolio, follow the steps below to change the ‘Home’ link within your navigation menu to point to your site:
2. Expand the ‘Home’ menu item by clicking on the downward facing arrow
3. Append the URL to read http://sites.cdnis.edu.hk/students/your_student_number, where your student number is in the form of six digits e.g. 012345 (you can find your student number on your library card)
A final note, please bear in mind that your iFolio is a publicly accessible space, and ensure that the content you post and the language you use is appropriate.
Feel free to delete this post from your Dashboard once you have finished reading it!
A few weeks ago, we started something called the Passion Project. During Passion Project, we did a project about something we were passionate about.
The thing I learned most was…
Time management. I have never been really good at time management. I have always just did what I had to do without making sure I had enough time for the next thing. Through this project, I learned how important time management is.
The best thing about this passion project session was…
The best thing was when I made the piggy bank. It was fun to see a pig form out of a plastic bottle! But it was quite hard to cut the toilet paper roll…
Next time I think I will…
Do something else like crocheting. I think that my project was a bit boring and the result wasn’t that exciting either. Next time, I will manage my time better and maybe think more about my topic!
Ms.Williams came in a few days ago to teach us something. She said we were under a situation and we had to fix it. She told us to pretend we were the City Public Health Director. The radio had just reported that there was a dangerous substance called DHMO that we had everyday access to. What do we tell the frightened city? Hoax or real?
We went to a DHMO.org to check it out. In the end we found out it was a fake! DHMO is actually water!💧
I learned that in order to have valid info, you have to have a lot of resources and check to see if the website had valid information!
This is a really memorable piece of work because I learned how to work better as a team and it was just fun!
This is a reflective piece of work. We were required to write one after doing activity of trying to make a ramp for a marble out of newspaper and masking tape. The ramp had to be at least one foot high.
I learned from this activity to stay more on task, work better as a team and to speak up fro myself when I want to.
This a piece of my math classwork. Our teacher told us to make up our own number system with a partner. Imagine that! My partner and I created the Platio alien number system. Platio means six in this alien language. The aliens we made up have three(rhin in alien language) fingers on each hand.
It was pretty hard work! Easier said than done! I am proud of this because this is a really big accomplishment for me. I haven’t really done anything like this before, so this is new. It was very exciting!
Here is an essay I wrote at the beginning of school.
The theme is…
You get a set of magical sidewalk chalk. Anything you draw comes to life. Either describe what you will do with the chalk or create a list of rules for using the magical chalk.
I am proud of my work because I really like creating fantasy stories, short stories most of the time. I think I have done a really good job at this one with the magical chalk. I have always wanted to have a set of magical chalk/pencils. I think what I drew was pretty good,too. I also think that I made the story have a lot of good vocabulary words.
Before I didn’t really like writing. I thought it was too tiring! Now I understand more of the joy of writing stories and how cool it is to be the creator!
