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!
The screenshot above is a screenshot of my memoir 1st draft where we only had the basic knowledge and the outline of memoirs. I attempted to show not tell but took a long time for me to understand this concept and this style of writing. As you can see in the photo above, the blue text is the newer and more improved version of the ones in black. I wanted to post this on my blog/portfolio because I feel really proud that I am able to learn a new style of writing because I feel that I need improve my English. Also, my normal style is the exact opposite so this is a really big achievement for me. In addition, this felt like an extreme challenge for me due to my style.
Before this activity, we drew what we thought was a system and described it. My group chose the system of a hamburger and how it is made. Then, Using a chatterbox, we talked about different aspects of the system we drew on Friday. The chatterbox worked because on each side there was a question that we had to answer explain the answer. Here is the link.
Developing self-awareness can build character and healthy relationships by causing the person to realise their surroundings and to build healthy relationships and character due to their new experiences. One of the examples of this in my life is when I realised that to continue to build character and expand my inner circle, I had to adapt and learn through experience.
During the week, we endured a lot of assessments and activities. For example, we did the map test and math checkpoint. The map test has 3 different sections, reading, math and language/writing. We did the test over the course of 3 days with reading first and writing last. In math, we learned about equations, integers, input output machines and divisibility rules. For the math checkpoint, it occurred on the 6th and there is going to be an end of unit test on the 11th. In addition, we created a video for curriculum night to show our parents around the classroom. I, Brent and Hadrian was in charge of the class name and the door. Other jobs include mindfulness, decoration, class jobs, UOI, grateful board, thinking model… Also, we started book club by meeting our groups 3 times a week. In addition, roots and shoots started today at lunch with most of my friends going. During literacy, we extended our knowledge on memoirs and by understanding what are the properties of a memoir.
During the first two weeks of school, we went through several pre-assessments and tasks including math, Chinese, literacy… In return, we got 5-10 minutes of mindfulness each and every morning (excluding Fridays). During these mindfulness sessions, we either lie down or sit then just breath in and out to relax. This week we started ASAs and I had a little bus problem that remains unsolved. Also, there was a typhoon 10 this week which resulted in us skipping school for Wednesday. Today we did an inquiry on passwords and watched a video about password security. The link is here. We also unpacked our central idea (developing self-awareness can build character and healthy relationships).
Today I presented my passion project on the effects of video games in your average life. During this project, I learned that video games had a really big impact on your life. For example, video games can improve reaction time, hand-eye coordination and even memory! the best part is that I got to play video games as an experiment to find out the effects of video games on your life. next time I will be doing a project on agitation coke/sprite/mentos…
So this is my favourite piece of work so far in year 5because it shows who I really am and what I like. In addition, this gives me an image of how expensive the things in the outside world actually are. Also this helps me improve my addition skills by challenging me to calculate more difficult and larger numbers mentally, for example 99,000 + 50,000 + 150,000. In this experience, I listed things that I wanted and then I search up the price of the objects or things I wanted. In conclusion, this has showed me the rewards of being ambitious ( I shall achieve the things on my list).
Hi, a few weeks ago I built a clay tile with my own two hands and now this is a review of it. I am going to answer these 3 questions: How do you feel making a clay piece with your own two hands? What is it like to be a artist and a maker? Finally, how does this experience challenge your views of an artist and a maker? When I make something with my own two hands I feel like this is the original piece. This experience had helped me understand how it is like to be a artist by giving me the chance to be the designer,creator and maker. This challenges my view of a maker and a artist by mentioning that a maker can be a maker in different ways.
