How well did you communicate your experience as a Hong Konger? *
i communicated with this project by putting the most iconic part of hong kong and like the people , food, lifestyle try to put everything together and the make a product that describes how it is in hong kong by showing the view in our perspectives as a hong konger.
How would you describe your personal success as an interdisciplinary learner? *
i would say i’m a risk taker because i like trying new things and like challenges because after i try new stuff i find myself getting into what i try and just start doing it .
How would you describe benefits of the interdisciplinary unit with specific examples. *
i think you get more chances of doing  more stuff on your own and try new things like music project when we had to do the mashup on our own that was a really good one .
What were the limitations of the interdisciplinary unit? Give specific examples… *
sometimes maybe you will struggle finding ideas or what you like so maybe thats the bad thing about it .

Project Genesis – Criteria Ci

What is the goal for your assignment? *
My goal for this assignment is to really make some music that i would like and enjoy myself and i feel like this is a really good opportunity to do it because it’s going to be a mashup project that in will be working on so i think pinking music i like into the mashup will be really important because if i like those musics and tracks i’m picking then i will be able to make them good and know what to do with it , so i think my goal for this project is to find tracks that i really like and make them a good mashup together .
Why this project? *
 This project because it has a big opportunity to just pick tracks that i like and put them into a mashup so that we would be able to enjoy while working on it so this is a big opportunity because we have the choice in our own hand of the whole project.
Outline/Process (Steps) to Achieve Goal. *
 i’m going to listen through the tracks i like over the years and look at background music and everything so i know what i really want and pick my music from there but after all at the end i’m looking forward to see a good product and a product i would enjoy listening to. i would choose four songs at least for the project i will watch the resources to learn how to match beats and then i will start mashing up the materials.
What do you hope to learn? *
 i hope i could learn more about editing and making my own music so that next time or in the future, this can become a hobby and i would just be able to make music on my own when i want to, and i hope i can learn how to make music that i would enjoy myself and for other people too.
What are the criteria you will use to self assess the success of your product? *
 The criteria i will be using to assess myself is the music i’m using and the edits i make and the use of the audio and how they match the beats and how the end product if it’s good or not. i must have at least four songs and two minutes long the bpm of each song must be the same and the song should flow.

Sounds of CDNIS – Criteria Di

Describe the process of this assignment. *
the process of the assignment was not as complicated then I thought it would be, just needed to catch the right moment and the right sound you need and then put in edits.After all the edits are done we have to explain how we did it and what kind of edits we have put in . i think the process of this project wasn’t hard but when we had to put the sound individually it was hard to decide where you want to put those sounds and in which part of the song you want to fill them in , there was a lot of stuff in this project i feel like i still need to develop more skills on.
Discuss your CDNIS sounds and how useful they were for your end product. *
the CDNIS sounds were useful for my end product because it helps fill in the gaps of a song with those sounds and makes it sounds good .But then most importantly is how we do the edits of the sounds we have and make them into sounds that we’re use to hearing in a song, so i think knowing what sounds are good helps a lot in this project.
Evaluate your learning and new skills acquired. *
 i learn that how we can use sound in real life to put it into a song and mix with edits so that we could make it into different sounds and i think it’s really cool about that because of how much edits we can so to the sound to make it sound like something we’re not familiar with and what i learn through the process is that how to make sounds edits into something else on another level.
What challenges did you face and overcome? *
 i face a lot of challenges like from finding the right sound and editing it , there was a lot of challenges and i just learn how to fix them with different kinds of tutorial and videos to help me with it .

what real world application can we use from this unit

i think the geography skills that we can use from this unit is the mapping skills that we use when we are doing the map test or some other activities that we do with maps so i think after we know about that skills and we learn about that it will be useful in the future days .

How and when that skills will be useful ?

I think the skills that i just mention upstairs is useful when we are finding places and maybe looking for places that we can travel to it might be easier to find it if you have these skills to use .
