Courseware evaluation. Useful! ;-)

Hye there..

Last week, before the semester break we were asked by our lecturer to do another presentation. The presentation should be about how to evaluate a courseware. As for my group, we did about free e-learning software, which is Sheppard Software. From this task, we by now have at least an idea how to look for materials to be used in the teaching and learning process, but also to choose the most suitable and reliable source available. We came up with a checklist that help us to be specific in what were the aspects that needed to look for when evaluating a courseware. It was very useful!

Backup plans + knowledge on ICT = a good lesson! :-)

Hi there..
Here we meet again . Hehe. I am so relieved now because my group has completed the simulated teaching last week! Me and the other group members were so glad that it was over. However, I noticed that there was weakness in the presentation. There was technical problem whereby we cannot switch on the LCD although we had connected the wire into its place. We were so panicked as there was a PowerPoint presentation to be used in the lesson. And we did not have a backup plan. Oh my God! I thought all of us were going to be dead meat. Huhu. It took quite a long time to fix that situation. Luckily our lecturer, Mr. Ahmad Fauzi helped us. It happened to be that we forgot to press one button on the wall to switch it on. The students on the other hand were making noise and were restless. I think what we can improve our micro teaching in the future is by always have backup plans, just in case the technology that we wanted to use in the lesson can’t work properly, as what has happened to my group. Besides that, we know that we must prepare ourselves to tackle the students so that they are in control in the classroom. I learned a lot from this and hope that I could do better in the future..:-)

What a fun experience being a ‘child’ in micro teaching..:-)

Last week I acted as a student during my other classmates were doing their micro teaching. It was very fun you know. We were enjoying ourselves during the whole science period. We were clapping, giving irrelevant and creative answers to the teachers during the teaching and learning process. What was more fun that acting like a 10 year old child in a science class, right? Three micro teaching were being carried out last week. Based from the three groups, I could see how they manipulate the use of technology to aid the teaching and learning process more interesting and motivating for the children. The use of technology can be a helpful tool for the teacher to arouse the children interest as they won’t feel bored and enjoy the lesson without them realizing it. As for my group, we hope that what we are doing now is on the right track. Huhu. Hopefully. I am still learning how to incorporate the use of technology to make my science lesson more meaningful and purposeful in the future.
