5th day of class.. ????

On the 5th day of class we are learned about scientific process skill. The truth was i'm kind of lost and blur at this time because i'm not attending the class on that day. The reason why is i was participating marching for Patriotic Day, Okay done!! let's begin with the learning stuff..

Apa Itu Kemahiran Sainstifik??

kemahiran yang membantu kita menjalankan sains dan kemahiran memanipulatif.Jadi, untuk membantu kita memudahkan lagi menjalankan proses sains seperti eksperimen kita perlu memahami kemahiran saintifik ini. 

Terdapat  12 perkara yang merangkumi kemahiran Proses Sains  iaitu memerhati, mengelas,mengukur dan menggunakan nombor,membuat inferens,meramal,berkomunikasi,menggunakan perhubungan ruang dan masa,mentafsir maklumat,mendefinasikan secara Operasi,mengawal memboleh ubah,membuat hipotesis dan mengeksperimen.

Proses-Proses Kemahiran Sainstifik

MEMERHATI
Proses mengumpul maklumat tentang objek dan fenomena menggunakan sebahagian atau kesemua deria dan dibuat secara kualitatif atau kuantitatif.

MENGELAS
Proses memerhati dan mengenal pasti perbezaan dan persamaan antara objek atau fenomena berdasarkan ciri atau sifat yang sepunya.

MENGUKUR DAN MENNGUNAKAN NOMBOR
Kelebihan membuat pemerhatian secara kuantitatif yang melibatkan penggunaan alat pendawaian.

MEMBUAT INFERENS

Proses membuat kesimpulan awal untuk menerangkan peristiwa atau objek berdasarkan pemerhatian..
kesimpulan yang dibuat pula mungkin benar atau salah.

MERAMAL
Proses untuk menentukan dan menjangka peristiwa yang akan berlaku.

BERKOMUNIKASI
Kemahiran yang merujuk kepada kelebihan menerima,memilih dan memepersembahkan maklumat atau idea dalam pelbagai bentuk.

MENGGUNAKAN PERHUBUNGAN RUANG DAN MASA
Kelebihan memperihalkan atau menunjukkan lokasi,arah,bentuk dan saiz sesuatu objek dan perubahannya mengikut masa.

MENTAFSIR MAKLUMAT

Kelebihan memberi penerangan rasional tentang objek,fenomena atau pola berdasarkan maklumat yang dikumpul.

MENDEFINASI SECARA OPERASI
Proses memberi definasi tentang sesuatu konsep atau keadaan dengan menyatakan perkara yang perlu dilakukan dan diperhatikan.

MENGAWAL PEMBOLEH UBAH
Satu faktor,keadaan atau hubungan yang boleh diubah dalam suatu kejadian atau sistem yang dikaji.

MEMBUAT HIPOTESIS

Merupakan suatu ramalan mengenai hubungan antara dua atau lebih pembolehubah.(Boleh diuji kesahihannya)
MENGEKSPERIMEN
Kelebihan melaksanakan prosedur untuk menguji sesuatu hipotesis.

4th day of class...

"Constructivism proposes that learning environments should support multiple perspectives or interpretations of reality, knowledge construction, and context-rich, experience-based activities."

-- David H. Jonassen




What is constructivism theory?

theory that people construct their own understanding and knowledge of the world, through experiencing things and reflecting on those experiences. When learners encounter something new, they reconcile it with previous knowledge and experience. They may change what they believe, or they may discard the new information as irrelevant.

The principal of constructivism theory...

Constructed: 
Students come to learning situations with already formulated knowledge, ideas, and understandings. Students will integrate new experiences and interpretations to construct their own personal meaning with this previous knowledge.

Active:
The student is the person who creates new understanding for her/himself. The teacher guides knowledge, but allows the students to experiment, manipulate objects, ask questions and try things that don't work. Students also help set their own goals and means of assessment.

Reflective:
Teachers should create opportunities for students to question and reflect on their own learning processes, either privately or in group discussions. The teacher should also create activities that lead the student to reflect on his or her prior knowledge and experiences.

Collaborative: 
The constructivist classroom relies heavily on collaboration among students because students learn about learning not only from themselves, but also from their peers. When students together review and reflect on their learning processes, they can pick up strategies and methods from one another.
Inquiry- or Problem-Based: The main activity in a constructivist classroom is solving problems. Students use inquiry methods to ask questions, investigate a topic, and use a variety of resources to find solutions and answers.

Evolving: 
Students have knowledge that they may later see as incorrect, or insufficient to explain new experiences. As students explore a topic or problem, they draw conclusions, and, as exploration continues, they revisit those conclusions and modify them to support new knowledge or experiences

cool and awesome video about NUCLEAR..

hye once again.. i know i'm kind a little bit late to update my entry compared to the others. i saw many of my coursemate updating their blog with such knowledgeable and interesting input.. awesome you guys.. quite jealous with your skills in designing your own blog.. enough with such an absurd chit chat.. 

this video is about how nuclear power energy is generated.. the video shows us a better understanding on how this energy is produced.. with a better animation and graphical presentation, this video is not bad at all. credit to video maker or video uploader...

3rd day of class...

okay what do i learned on that day.. well there were so many input that has be given by Dr Nurul in 3 hours of period.. Hopefully i will manage to get some empty spaces in head and fill it up with these beneficial knowledge.. huhuhu.
Lesson 1: (as i remember)

  • how to differentiate between education instruction and teaching
  • explain the relationship between education, instruction, teaching, technology, assessment, and learning.
These are the main inquiries 
  • INSTRUCTION
  • TEACHING 
  • TECHNOLOGY
  • ASSESSMENT
  • LEARNING


I also have learned a new technique called Advance Organizer: Technique KWHL
what is KWHL is stand for???

K- what you Know
W- what do you Want to know
H- How to find out
L- what have you Learned

Our next lesson is to fill up the blank by answering all the questions that has be given above..


What you KNOW?? What you WANT to know?? HOW to find out?? What you LEARNED??

Malaysia, Energy Crisis & Nuclear....???





As a developing country, Malaysia now facing with a bigger issues which is energy crisis. Oil and gas have been the main energy sources in Malaysia. But as Malaysia is developing the demand for the energy is getting higher and higher each year. We predict that the oil and gas will eventually getting fewer and couldn't support our rapidly economic growth as our country developing in the future. How do we going to solve this problem??

Nuclear may seem as a dangerous and harmful energy to certain kind of people. But do we realize the good side of it. Media do play an important by telling the disadvantages of nuclear.. Begins with the nuclear as a dangerous defense and weapon that can destroy and damage human tragic nuclear disaster that happened in Chernobyl and Fukushima. FYI nuclear are now widely used in our daily life without we ever noticed it. For example in medicine, that uses small amounts of radioactive material to diagnose or treat a variety of diseases, including many types of cancers, heart disease and certain other abnormalities within the body.
