In March the Teacher Across Border expert from the USA, Prof. Mill Kelly, came to conduct a workshop at NIE, which provide a useful modern knowledge relating to the use of ICT in teaching and learning. The workshop provide a topic of using blog to assist in teaching and learning among teachers and students, where the participants during the workshop included staff from NIE, some teacher trainee from NIE, and those from PUC too. . The knowledge from the workshop enable the participants to make their own blog and embrace the new knowledge of using the blog to assist in their teaching, especially, in the mean of digital learning and distance learning. Through the use of blog teacher can store many sites and sources of useful documents including video and photos as documentary for the students search and refer to during their course. In addition, teacher can post home work or assignment for the students to do at anytime and anywhere.The environment of the workshop was smoothly conducted and successfully achieved the objective, yet the internet service was quite slow which participants had not time to practice during the workshop. However, they had plenty of time to practice during the afternoon and evening at the interenet cafe in stead.
The Professor who lectured during the workshop was quite young, but in a very talented explaination and skillful background of using the blog in the content of teaching. We all participant hope to have such workshop providing more variety knowledge to the staff at NIE to be able to learn new knowledge and help to develop NIE to be more developed in the soon future.
