Zaman Dah Berubah Cikgu!

Assalamualaikum ...

Ive been in Kelantan for almost one month ...
Sambil2 tak ada kerja, I did my charity project ...
I teach at one of the sekolah harian, 2-3pm, weekdays, form 4 students, Modern Maths ...

I amazed when 'my students' used the Scientific Calculator in class ...
Compared to my scool days before, we just used the normal calculator ...
Simple, Priceless and hahahaha tak nampak canggih langsung!

I amazed!

The first topic was STANDARD FORM ... in BM dah lupadah ...
(I learn in BM anyway ... spm 2002)
Ajar punya ajar ...
I found out one thing ...

My students, are a little bit slow when I ask them to 'congak' some of the simple calculation ... like ... 76 - 18? 27 - 13? 8 X 7? ... and they do have intention to still use the calculator! huhuhuhu so pity!

My second topic was QUADRATIC EQUATION ...
If you are a science student, in SPM, this topic is sooooo easy (in Modern Maths)...
Since this chapter is in Modern Maths, and all of them do learn the Add Maths ...
I think that they will conquer this topic well ...
As usual, I found out that ...

My students, they still 100% rely on calculator ...
They really really and really doesn't sure on how to solve the questions manually ...
Thats not a big problem anyway ...

But the most annoying thing is, they do rely on calculator and I found out they become lambat pickup to calculate simple thing without calculator ...

When I speak 'out loud' to them about this matter ...
Their answer goes ... ZAMAN DAH BERUBAH CIKGU!!!

Now, this Scientific Calculator become a virus to them ...
Same goes to our 'lovely' Handphone ...
How many of us remember/memorize at least 25 phone numbers in their mind?
So do I ... no ... FAILED!

Huhuhu ... what happen to our education system?
Easir and simpler today ... the outcome? ... COMPLICATED GENERATION!

Assalamualaikum ...

  2. yup..you are absolutely right..technology sometimes will be the virus in enhancing one capabilities..its will limit our ability and skill indirectly without we realize it..that the fact of our current education system now..its good to have a supporting materials for the course but when we are too rely or depend too much to such a thing then its become the shortcoming of the learning process..

    Last time, I tought English Language (form3) for free!!~
    Every each of them rely on dictionary.. Not really rely but very hard to use the dictionary even each of them got it in front of them!! Even the simplest word which the primary student can easyly asnwer, THEY DIDN'T KNOW THE MEANING...

    I always wondering.. How Malays in a few years coming...
    They said they studied hardly, but they rely on calculator... they said they studied very hard, while they hate to open their dictionary..

Patong Beach Phuket: Party Unlimited

I just comeback from Phuket last weekend. :)
It was awesome trip where I met few friends and enjoy the Loi Khratong & Full Moon Party!

Since it has been a very long time I didn't update my blog, so today Ill post about my recent trip: PHUKET!

15th November, 2013
Me and my travel buddy; Lanang took a bus from KL Sentral to KLIA via AirportCoach which cost us RM10.00. You have to know that the last trip from KL Sentral is at 1100 PM sharp. What if you can't manage to go to KLIA by bus? I mean you miss the bus? Well, just pay RM 35.00 for the KLIA Express.


Well, since we flew to Phuket on 16th November 2013 at 430 AM. We have ample of time to walk around at the KLIA and sleep! I prefer to sleep!

16th November 2013
Flight from KLIA departed around 430 AM and arrived at Phuket International Airport around 445 AM local time. Lucky our air carrier is MAS. Free beverage is compulsory for flight above 60 minutes!

From the Phuket International Airport we have to wait for few hours …

Marine Engineering Bridging Program

Assalamualaikum ...

DONE!
It would be the best word to describe when I'm done my 2-year training ...
2 years isn't easy path for me to walk through ...

Last week, I get back home after a few weeks struggle for my exams ...
Theory exam (Oral Exam) at MARDEP Port Kelang ...
MSCR exam (Marine Survical Craft & Rescue) at ALAM Melaka ...
and a few courses before and after the exams ...

Alhamdulillah ... I passed all the exams ...
Now, it is the time for me to apply for my CoC (Certificate of Competency) ...

2 years back ...
I remembered when one of the staff from my company said ...
'Your Degree is Useless ... You can burn it!'
Phewwww!
Just put yourself in my shoes ...
:p

When I was onboard ship ...
Some peoples discriminate me and my buddy ...
Just because we have a piece of paper ...
B.eng Mechanical is nothing to them ...
But then, its something to us ...

A few cadets argued about how much we earned per month ...
Nothing he shared with us ...
Help with hidden agenda ...
&
Worse to worse…

Terukir di Bintang!

Assalamualaikum ...

I just comeback to my hometown (Malaysia) since last fortnight ...
And Im so crazy about this song!

Jika engkau minta intan permata tak mungkin ku mampu
Tapi sayangkan ku capai bintang dari langit untukmu
Jika engkau minta satu dunia akan aku cuba
Ku hanya mampu jadi milikmu pastikan kau bahagia
Hati ini bukan milik ku lagi
Seribu tahun pun akan ku nanti
Kan… kamu…
Sayangku
Jangan kau persoalkan siapa di hatiku
Terukir di bintang tak mungkin hilang cintaku padamu
