Step 1...Step 2....Step 3....

For me, to learn something is difficult. But to express something is more difficult. Huhu… That is what I learned during the previous class. Tutorial. What is tutorial? Formerly I don’t really know what tutorial is really about (I thought it’s like a class. Hehe…). Other than that, tutorial is like a ‘lesson plan’. If it is like a ‘lesson plan’ that I usually do, it would be easier to create one. But this time, it is regarding technology (again and again). Everything has to be done electronically.
During the class, Pn Foziah asked me to search for Michael Jackson’s last song and download it. At first, I didn’t really get what for she asked me to search for the song. So I ‘Google’ and found it on the net. It took me some time before I get found it. Moreover, I didn’t know which song she meant. Hurm… To find it is easier but I didn’t know how to download it. Luckily I have many ‘techno’ friends. They introduced me with ‘’ which is a link to download mp3 files (I didn’t know there is such thing). I thought, to download songs or videos, one needs to use specific software but this one easier. Before this, I only use ‘YouTube Downloader’ if I want to download something. It is a new knowledge for me (I’m still newbie…Hehe….).
1. Go to google.
2. Print screens every step.
3. Paste it on power point slides.
“Oh my God. Am I going to do all these things?” So, this is what she meant by tutorial. At first, I’m a bit lousy because I didn’t really remember all the steps that I have gone through in downloading the song. Then I had to start it over again. Huhu. I got so many things to do in a short time. Not only print screens it, I also had to describe each step to make it comprehensible. Even though I’m not good is describing things, I took it as a practice for me to develop this skill. Thanks to the course which allows me to do that. Hehe..
Apart from that, there were also presentations before the class ended. As usual, this can’t be avoided. Fortunately, all of my group members are very cooperative. Imagination and fantasy. That was the topic given to us. Even though we were not really discussing about it, but we managed to present well enough (I think, hehe…). But never mind. There are still a lot of presentations after this. And I hope we could cooperate to do it…again…

Newbie... Huhu...

Talking about ICT skills is like swimming in an ocean. Yes. That’s how I describe ICT skills. For me, ICT skills consist of a very wide aspects related to the use of technology. Even though it is not into my field, but a teacher (future) like me must have this knowledge and skills. It will be a ‘weapon’ for me to be used in my classroom later.
What I know about ICT skills is the use of electronic devices such as computer and internet. But I just knew that sounds, videos and so many other things related to this ‘fake human’ creation are also into ICT skills. Hmm… sounds interesting to me. Maybe with this new input, I would explore it deeply to practice what I have learned.
During the second lecture, my lecturer talked about these skills starting from the beginning of the lesson. At first, I didn’t expect that my coming assignment will be using all of these skills. I thought that it was just for extra knowledge for me. Later when she gave out samples of assignments done by my seniors, my heart said, “Oh My God… So many things to do.” The task requires me to apply ALL of the skills from the simplest thing to complicated one. Huhu…
PHOTOSHOPS, WINDOW MOVIE MAKER, ULEAD… I never heard about this softwarebefore. What I know is… watching videos, not making videos. Hehe. But now I have to do all these things. I hope with the guidance from Pn Foziah and my colleagues, I will be able to produce at least an appropriate product. I still have lots work to do and to study if I want to succeed this time. May God helps me…(^.^)

Technology...Technology... And technology. This is what i will be doing for the whole semester including this subject. The word "Resources" is kind a huge word for me. As i expected, the use of ICT cannot be avoided especially in education. Some people feel jerk and shouting "...Oh NO!!! Not again.." But not to me. i always have a good thought about why learning has to be integrated with ICT skills. Apart from doing a lot of work, i mean, when using this technology in learning, we are actually SHARPENING our 'buried skills'. for me, i do have the knowledge but dont have the opportunity to implement it (maybe i dont know when to use it). So, this subject has lightened up my eyes at last...:)
