Information Fluency

I learned that riversides resources are very vast. From just there library, to the information you can find from destiny. I also learned that in terry fox library and in the different FVRL locations there are other items that they support. Such as virtual reality, spheros, and ukuleles. One thing that stood out to me today was how enthusiastic the librarians were. I expected them to be fet up with students, but they were very positive

Self reflection The sniper trailer

Describe how the artifact you selected shows your strengths & growth in specific core competencies. The prompt questions on the left – or other self-assessment activities you may have done – may guide your reflection process.

How does the artifact you selected demonstrate strengths & growth in the thinkingcompetencies?

In what ways might you further develop your thinking competencies?

I believe this project was hard because I wasted my time. I thought this project was easy based on what I had to create. My thinking changed about video editing and sound editing. I thought it was fun while I was doing it which surprised me.


The Veldt continued

“Yes that would be nice” said Mr. McLean. The therapist wondered what the lions were eating. He looked at the children and thought they couldn’t have. The children starred at him while eating. Mr. McLean asked again “where are your parents they should be here by now. The children said “I’m sure they will be back shortly don’t worry”. A few moments later the children said to Mr. McLean “we’re bored would you like to play a game.” The therapist became uncomfortable and said “sure” nervously.

The children told Mr. McLean that the game that they wanted to play was hide and seek. Mr. McLean agreed. The daughter tagged Mr. McLean and said “wait 30 seconds.” The children ran off. After he had finished counting he went to the nursery, assuming they were there. He was hesitant to step in but he thought it was silly to be scared of mere children so he walked in. He stepped in looking around the veldt but he could not find the children he quickly looked back as he heard a startling sound it was the door, it had been closed.


Digital literacy 2017

Digital literacy is an important tool in my day to day life from doing different projects in school to creating a post on Instagram. Although these services are mostly good, there are some things you should be careful of that could affect your digital footprint.

The presence of digital literacy in my school has made it much more simple for me to do work and projects. With services like edublog where I can post my work on my own page. From that page my teachers can instantly see what I have done.

Not everything is perfect though. For example I could post something on social media that is offensive to a race or religion. In the future my job opportunities and being accepted into colleges/universities may be more difficult. A good way to stop this from occurring is by using this system “think”. T – is it true H – is it helpful I – is it inspiring N – is it necessary K – is it kind. If you stick by these rules you should not have a negative digital footprint.
