Using Creative Fluency

The project I decided to choose to represent my creative fluency was my Digital Literacy Project: “Digital Footprint”. I chose this because I am not able to show a lot of creativity in my other classes. For this project, we had to choose an influencer to talk about whether they are oversharing or not on the internet.

IDENTIFY: for me to identify my project, I looked over the criteria and see what the teachers expect us to have in the infographics. With that information, I can properly start the project knowing the things I needed to do.

INSPIRE: I did not follow the traditional format and example as to what the other students did but I took a different turn. I was inspired by the many collages I saw on Pinterest and decided to have a similar format.

Of course, it doesn’t look exactly the same, but I took the idea of putting a lot of Marla’s photos on one page and using a similar color pallet.


I decided to go on the internet and look for the pictures relevant to what I will talk about and fit them into 3 different pages. I added little irrelevant pictures for the aesthetic and just to spice it up a little.


Finally, I was able to put everything together. As I said before, I took inspiration to a collage aesthetic and decided to messily put a couple of photos of Marla’s social media on the first page. I had a clear vision of how I wanted the pages to look and added a few details such as fonts and colours during the process.

example of the first page of my project:


Before handing in my project, I looked back at the criteria. I made sure all the mandatory things we need to add was on the page, finally handed it in.

The video that I inserted above is a recording of me playing Cedar Valley March from Concert Band 9. Our whole band practices this piece together every other school day. In the video, I am playing the violin with a prerecording of the piece from Youtube. My goals whenever I play this piece to trying to perfect it or improve my skills compared to how I first played it.


Playing this makes me proud because I love hearing how much our band improved together. Once you listen to our live playing on our Winter Concert at Pinetree, you will be able to tell how hard we worked.


I personally didn’t face too many challenges on this piece, but a lot of students started playing new instruments this year and their learning affected the pace we were learning this piece. I’m glad that all of the new players improved a lot and are able to show how far they have come.


I have no control over how well our band sounds, but our improvement is all thanks to Mrs. Carmichael.
