6th week..!!

Hi, I am back again and this time with a whole new experience..I have learned alot today because this week's class was the presentation on 'critique on teaching software'. Many groups have presented and I admit that I have benefited alot through this weeks class. Some of the critique that was done by my fellow friends are on many forms of teaching software that can be found in todays modern world. As for my group, we presented on a software which is of E-learning. This is a kind of software that allows pupils to be actively engage themselves in the learning process. My group did provide some example of activities that can be found in this software. Not only that it is interesting and not to mention fun and interactive at the same time. I belive that each school should have such software installed in every PC in the school so that it would be benefical for the pupils. They will not only learn but also play at the same time which will increase their motivation level at the same time. I believe that pupils will benefit alot from such taeching software as it promotes interest in children. I am going to miss Science lesson so much next week because I am having semester break for a week.. :( Learning Science this semester is really fun and interesting and I really enjoy myself. Thank you Mr. Fauzi :)

...5th week..maximum exposure!!!

Hello, I am back again..well this time I do have alot of things to share since it is the 5th week..Yes, so fast isn't it..??it feels like I just entered UM like say, yesterday and its already the fifth week..Your right, time flies...What did I learn during Science class today..?? Before I answer that question myself, I would like to express my relief because my group and I have successfully completed our simulated teaching. It is a really good experience, I would say. For most of us of course. This is because, this is my first time teaching for the Science subject therefore I really did not know what to aspect..however I must say that I manage to deliver the lesson well. Thanks to my group for helping me and supporting me and same goes to my classmates. The topic of my simulated teaching was on light with 2 major concepts which are : " LIGHT TRAVELS IN A STRAIGHT LINE as well as introduction to terms such as ' OPAQUE, TRANSPARENT AND TRANSLUCENT'. My group went on great lenght to incooperate the use of technology in our teaching and therefore we used Powerpoint presentations as well as Torchlight. I learned alot based on this week's class and I must asmit that I had a lot of fun although this task is suppose to be an assignment. :) Besides that, Mr. Fauzi also did give us a hand-out on 'COMMMON TEACHER MISTAKES THAT CAUSE STUDENT MISBEHAVIOR' . Thanks Mr. Fauzi for having the thought of sharing this piece of information because I found it very interesting and usefull especially for me as a future teachers. The points that was emphasized in the hand-out made me to think of my own personal conduct and how I can and should improve myself. Thus, i found the hand-out really interesting and educational. Thats all for now, till I see you again..ADIOS!!!
