Hello guys! We are on week 8 already. We meet again guys! I will share my reflection on today’s class okay. My group has done with our questionnaire so it is the time to proceed to completing our report! Dr. Fariza assigned us to start writing the report based on what she has written in front of the class. There are few criteria need such as introduction, literature review, research objectives, methodology, finding, discussion and conclusion. She did the brief for a while and left it to us until the end. I have some problem regarding the differences between findings and discussion. Not just that, I had a problem too regarding on how to write data collection and data analysis. I got so confused until I asked Dr. Fariza so many times hahaha she was so lovely. She never gets tired explaining those to me until I got the idea of it. She did mentioned few tricks on using Microsoft Word. Okay this is the best part. We were all be like "Ohhhh now we know" (LOL). The tricks really help us in order to make our report writing easier. Instead of clicking the "Enter" button to move on to another page, Dr. Fariza introduced us to "Page Break" that will simply do so for us. Ironic, right? We feel like we know everything but actually, we do not hehehe moreover, now I know on the function of Document Map together with how did "Headings 1, 2 and 3" work in our writing. That is pretty much like it. I am going start writing the report with two of my other friends and will soon share the report under Assignment section. Thanks for reading guys!
Week 7 yay! I was feeling good today hehe nice weather with nice aura of my beloved Faculty of Education, I was more than ready for today’s class. I told ya! I had a good feeling because I love love love this task so much (scream). Are you guys wondering why I feel that way? Hahaha it is because I get to design my own questionnaire using Google Form!!! Let me be honest with all of you. Before this, I was wondering how people make forms using Google Form (LOL). Seriously, I have done questionnaire before manually using Microsoft Word!!! Oh my Gucci can you imagine the struggle I have been though finishing the survey manually?
I felt so sick after knowing there is another way of doing it. The most important thing is, so much easier than doing it manually!!! I wanted to cry for not knowing things. How can I call myself as one of the Gen-Z (emotional), but seriously, this is a complete mind-blowing “incident”. It may sound pathetic but this is real! I enjoyed doing the questionnaire requested by Dr. Fariza so not a big deal after all! I think by doing a questionnaire, we got to gather the data easier especially when we are using Google Form. We can simply view the responses we have to know the result. Nope, we do not need to calculate the data manually. Google Form will help us with that. Not just that, Google Form also provide us with the charts based on the responses gathered from the survey.
I used to do the data analysis using Microsoft Word in order to have charts. Again, I did all that manuallyyyyyyyyyyy. Shoot me now hahaha in future, I will use this way every time I wanted to conduct a survey. Oh by the way, our questionnaire is based on our previous presentation. So ours’ is Thinking Skills in ICT. After we came up with the questions, we are looking forward to see the dependencies of students in various higher institutions ICT.
We will submit the form for Dr.Fariza to check it first before we can spread it out for others to answer it. I will update the Google Form soon under Assignment section hehe thank you guys!
Nervous! Nerve wracking! Excited! Mix feelingssssss. Why? Well because today is the presentation day! So with 3 persons per group, we are required to present a topic & ours’ is Thinking Skills in ICT. ICT is not a new thing for me but considering combining thinking skills & ICT, I think this is a good topic to be presented of. Well, we came out with a problem faced by students right now.
Students are pretty much too depending on ICT in everything they do & this can harm their thinking skills in the future. Students simply Google everything & tend to seek for the information from the Internet without any guts to come up with their own perspectives. Of course, we cannot deny the fact that ICT is going to help enhancing our understanding towards certain topics but come to think of it, ICT is going to harm the ability of the students to think critically in their studies. It is so crucial for us, as a future teacher to produce students that are able to think outside of the box rather than just answer everything by the facts. Just imagine a world with Google, Mozilla or Yahoo. How bad the situation could be?
Hands down, we cannot say no to kids if they insist to use ICT to search for information but it is our concern to make sure they are not TOO depending on it. They should have been monitored all the way to make sure they are on track. There is a risk of producing kids that cannot come up with brilliant ideas if we keep let them stick to the gadgets or laptop all day long. By going to the library to search some good materials to read is not an old school way yet. It is too early to come up with that kind of statement though. We still can consider taking kids to the library so that they still stick to the books rather than only to Google.
Well, that is my opinion. You guys can check out my group’s slides under Assignment section hehe thank you guys!
New week new task new lesson! I feel so good yet so fresh (I don’t even know why) so let’s start writing! So today we were asked to search for materials on topic given by Dr. Fariza. We were cooperating in a group consists of three persons which are Joecy, Ho Yen Yee, and I. This group will remain the same until the end of this semester hehe Dr. Fariza distributed the topics and my group ended up having Thinking Skills and ICT as our topic.
Thinking Skills in ICT? Hmm never thought of that but we will figure it out soon yea? We were then asked to search for the information based on the topic given and come up with any problems regarding the topic. After went through brain storming, we ended up with one problem regarding this topic. But be patient, I will share with you guys on the next reflection. Is it okay?
Hehe so after we were all finished with the brain storming, we were then asked to gather information about CASPER since we are going to have those criteria in our presentation soon. To be honest, I’ve never heard this term before so I am pretty curious about it. So, I think by following CASPER style for completing our slides, we will end up having a great presentation. The fact that we need to consider so many aspects, even little things, will ensure the slides we going to have is presentable enough to the audiences to not losing their focus during our presentation. I have been through so many presentations and I thought that CASPER criteria are very helpful in order to have better presentation in future. I used to choose bad colours that not suitable for a presentation hahaha everybody went through their childhood phase I supposed >< I noticed that people not considering the wow factor of their presentation that soon made me feel bored from the beginning. Later on, we do not pay attention to the important that particular person is talking about that is going to leave us hanging.
Okay that is all of it hehe I have shared the information on CASPER as well under Assignment section. Feel free to explore! See you guys soon!
