In week 4, Dr Khalid was the one who conducted the class. We learned about m-learning and e learning. Basically, m-learning is device that we use such as mobile phone or something that can be carry anywhere we go. While, e-learning is electronic learning like Wi-Fi, Internet or any other medium that related with electronic. As m-learning and e-learning give a lot of benefits to student and teacher because it can improve their skill while gaining knowledge. They may learned anytime and anywhere they want, as they can take the device anywhere they go and there will be on going learning without giving them limitation to access to the learning. Therefore, e-learning is a medium that used internet and get access to unlimited kind of information that they want to find out. There will be no excuse for them to seek for any information. As they can just merely type anything they want to find out and within a second, they will get the answer on what they are looking for. Whereas, e-learning can give many advantages to student because they can gain information, share their thought, directly communicating with their teacher and friends in case if they want to ask anything that related to the learning and exposed to the technology at the same time.
Moreover, Dr Fariza is the lecturer for our tutorial class where we learned about two types of reflection and how to make portfolio. First, we created account on Weebly and designed them based on our own styles and creativity. Then, we learned about the different between standard page and blog page. Where standard page just merely a picture and there’s no date and comment stated on that page, while we can see the date, comment and get the specific URL on the blog page. Other than that, we were required to create the assignment, reflection, educational blog and MISC on our e-portfolio. Lastly, we were given a task to design our own home page and briefly write about ourselves.
The class started in week 3, as the first two weeks were public holiday and was not required us to attend the class. Mejar Jasmy was in charge to teach us on week 3. More, he taught us to be discipline and punctual in anything we do regards who we are. Nevertheless, discipline and punctuality are the main key to success in life, especially if we are working in education field. We as a teacher need to shows a good example to our future student in order for them to follow the same attitude as what being shown. This is to shape them to give full of commitment whenever they are doing their work so that they can focus and achieve the goal in their task. Other than that, I learned about technology and the combination of art and science in the technology. The word technology come from Yunani language, which is “techne”.
First, the definition of technology is the application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes, especially in industry. While, technology also known as a machinery and equipment developed from the application of scientific knowledge. To begin with, the concept of technology, nearly all human societies have, or have had technologies, are often very elaborate. In view of the task in hand, however, we have no use for a general definition of technology, which includes only artefacts, or the material products of inventions. In addition, teacher mostly used technology in teaching and learning. As it is more interesting and can attract student’s attention in learning rather than traditional ways, which are book and whiteboard. At the same time, technology may promote student to improve their computer skill and soft skill while gaining meaningful knowledge at the same time. It gives a lot advantages to students nor teacher, as the teaching and learning process will be more attractive rather than dull and boring.
