Impression of the first few days of practicum

Submitted by akmal on 22 February, 2006 - 3:00pm. Categories: Messages

Dear all,

How were your first days of practicum? For someone like me, who unfortunately never went through the school experience, I have had a culture shock. Just wondering whether anyone else is grappling with the issue of classroom management vs trying out innovative pedagogy. I've found that teachers are generally spending a huge amount of time trying to manage their classes (in which I'm referring to loud or disruptive students), and as a result have very little time to actually teach. Is anyone else facing this challenge too?

A side issue is how personal should our messages be, given that this is a public website. I wouldn't want to be the next "blogger incident". What do you think?

Upload of more material and Moodle

Since the bandwidth of the site is rather low, we can accept big files that you want to preserve and share with others such as video demonstrations or ICT packages. Don't try to upload it yourself though, because it will fail. For files above 2MB in size, contact us directly, and we'll help you get the file uploaded by other means.

Also, Han Pin was interested in a Moodle site to host his ICT Moodle package and thought others might like to use it too, so we've created a Moodle site. Just follow the link that appears on the left-hand column.

Over there, you'll need to sign up for a separate account from this site. And then drop us an email to get the administrative rights to create courses. We are not as sophisticated as NIE's Moodle site http://lst.servy.net/moodle/. On the other hand, we'll host your Moodle site for as long as you want, so you can incorporate the site for your practicum too.

We hope you find the services here useful :) Don't hesitate to feedback to us if you need help or greater ICT functionality.
