Thursday (Week 3)
This week, during lecture, we have an event that relate to innovation and technology in teaching and learning. We, together with Sport Recreation and Special Education students were involve in this event. The event was called Pikto Tour. This is a tour that organised and conducted in the whole Malaysia. For this tour, it is special for people in Bangi, Selangor. The talk or the lecture was conducted by Dr. Fariza Binti Khalid herself. In this event, we were told what Piktochart is. That is the original purpose why this event was conducted in UKM. Basically, Piktochart is an online application with many functions. For example, we can use Piktochart to design posters, making interesting slideshow for presentation and so much more. I learned new thing that day. I never know what Piktochart before. After I came in UKM during first sem in my first year, I did learned how to use some online applications that brought almost the same function, but never Piktochart. So, I feel happy because through this Pikto Tour, my knowledge and exposition to technology for teaching was improved. Dr. Fariza gave a very good talk. Everything was clear actually, but the problem is that the wifi in Dewan Budiman is slow, so some activity we cannot do. I also lost when Dr. Fariza told how to use Piktochart step by step, only because of the wifi. We even get free VIP version for 1 month. But, sadly I cannot apply that, once again because of the wifi and I'm lost. Overaly, it was a good event and I learn a lot. For me, personally, I will use this application as much as possible. Many benefits compare to other application. I also will make sure to expose thi application to my student in the future after I become a teacher.
