Hi, everyone! How are you? Feeling good? Excellent!
I was just finished my last paper exam today…and guess what, yup, GGGE 2153 Educational Technology, 1200 at DTAMS. What a relief! (^_^)
I really can’t wait to go home for the holidays.
Education Technology is a very interesting course. I have learnt many things from this course.
Firstly, it improves my communication skills. I have discussion with my group through our Facebook group. Instead of having a discussion and idea-changing, it helps us to strengthen the bonding among us. Not just for a serious matter, we share our laugh and jokes together in the group.
Secondly, educational technology helps in boosting my soft skills. We have learnt on video production where we make our own video. My confidence level increases after this learning. This can be shown from my first video and my second video below. I can feel that I am now, a better person with a better confidence level. Congratulations to me myself!
Besides, I have got many things in the video production. I have learnt on storyboard, composition of shooting, video-editing and audio-editing. Now I know, having a storyboard is important in order to ensure that we are in the right path. Composition of shooting such as middle-shot and others help to increase the quality of photo-produced. For my observation, yes, DSLR camera gives the best quality of photo shooting. Thank you to my friend, Stephina Lupang for lending her camera for photo and video-shooting purpose. For video-editing, we have learnt how to edit video by using Premiere and Windows Movie Maker. Yes, Premiere has a better quality video-editing because it has more effects but, as for me myself, I love to edit video by using Windows Movie Maker because I have learnt about it before than Premiere.
Oh yaaa!!! We have also learnt about Photoshop. This software can be used for photo-editing. Yup, we have used this for our poster-making.
One more thing, we have applied CASPER technique in editing our poster. CASPER is a very useful technique especially for presentation purpose such as power point slides, poster, banner or bunting.
As a conclusion, Educational Technology is very worth to be learnt. As future educators, we should learn, practise and apply this knowledge in our future teaching. Special thanks to Dr Rosseni, Madam Hazrati, Mr Helmi and his friends, my beloved teammates of Kita-Kita Production, Teslians and friends for all your supports and cooperation in this 1 semester. I am very glad to have you in my life and I really hope that we can meet again in the future.
Happy Holidays to all. Do take care.
See you again in Semester 2 2012/2013!
