I was not able to show up this week due to medical reasons hence I was quite disappointed as I wanted to know more on the process of video making. However, having good friends that kept me up to date from time to time, I was able to grasp each little information that was taught by the lecturer. To make a video, first we must have a..
But how can someone come up with just any storyboard? Hence queries such as what sort of problems there is that should be solved and highlight on came up. For my group, we decided to make a video on health; how eating a lot is fine however with the right control and calories intake to be in the safe side. A road trip to Penang came up to mind as Penang is known for its varieties of delicious and exquisite food. We are still planning whether or not we should go for it as we are finding other alternatives that will benefit all six of us in the group. If we were to go on with the Penang idea, we need to be ready with cash; for food, lodging, transportation and in case of emergency. Apart from that, being in a group with just one main gender, our safety could be at stake.
I was quite excited for the trip if everyone is up for it as it was my first time going on a road trip with my close friends from this part of the state. Yes, there is many pros and consequences to think of, but if not now, when? Probably we will face a lot of ups and downs throughout the trip, but whatever it is, the experience that come with it that counts. So finger cross, our trip will work out! :)
Apart from that, working with video software is another thing I am ecstatic about. This show how important technology is in our society today. We basically need technology in everything we do. Using and finding the right gadgets; a DSLR, Gopro or maybe just your mobile phone to capture the moment is not something easy and it requires a lot of practice to be able to present the audiences what we wish to imply to them. Hence, this can also be applied in classroom teaching. Using the right “gadgets” to make the teaching and learning process more interesting and intriguing is what modern teachers or in other words, educators should do for our fast-advanced-growing-young-generation. Not trying to down-grade the usage of traditional method of teaching, as it does work but because of the gap of our generation now and before, one need to be equip and have the urgency to look up for the latest software or knowledge on tech.
With that, I shall end my post with a strive to teach my future students with the right “gadgets” to ensure that my teaching and learning process will always be filled with varieties and at the same time implementing the knowledge I have towards the students :)
