  REFLECTION BY AYUNI AMALINA MUKHTAR : I had just completed this course : TBC 3013 (ICT In Biology) on week 14. Now, I wouldlike to share about my personal view and opinion regarding this course. On my first dayof entering my ICT class, I felt so inspired and happy to begin this new course becauseof various reasons, firstly; it was my first ICT class here, in UPSI. Secondly; I will get agreat and valuable chance to learn about ICT more better, especially in the context of teaching and learning. While the third reason; this course has no final examination.Assessments will be done based on our assignments, presentations, works and projectsthat will be given during each week of my ICT classes. I feel so happy and excited toenter my ICT classes each week altogether with my friends. We worked in severalgroups, each groups consists of 4 people. With lots of challenging days and newexperience, so miracle I think, I had successfully learnt so many new things in just onesemester and had completed this course dramatically.Now, back to my reflection about this course. My overall reflection will reflects about myunderstanding towards the application of ICT in teaching and learning process,especially in Biology course.On my first week, I was being introduced with a new teaching and learning applications,which was known as Interactive White-Board (IWB). Well, I was not quite familiar withIWB because it is not available widely in our country. My lecturer said that IWB’s price isquite expensive and it was an imported products, which means that this applications isnot easily to get. Based on my searching on net about IWB, it is actually a largeinteractive display that connects to a computer and projector. A projector will projects thecomputer’s desktop onto the board’s surface. Ones can only use their hand to controlthe computer. It was so amazing because I only use my fingers to click on the board’ssurface, drag various items on the board to other location and draw what I wish onto theboard’s surface. Computer mouse was being avoided for a while.Next, I had learnt another new thing, which was Picasa application. It seems like acooking brand, but it was not. Picasa is actually a software which helps someone to editphotos, adding effects on it and also locate and organise all photos stored on computer.Besides, it is a software that make us easy and fun to view, organise, edit and share thedigital photos on your computer. What is special about it is, Picasa will not delete our pictures or put them online without our permission. I can also edit my pictures and makeit look more dramatic and valuable. Besides, I can make my own movies, include anymusic I wished into my movie, and create beautiful collages. Picasa had gave me achance to fill my leisure time besides teach me how to change ‘ugly pictures’ into‘beautiful ones.’Next, we had being introduced with another new application, known as CamStudio. It isa screencasting program for Microsoft Windows which enables us to create tutorial andsimulation more dramatically and in a sequence manner. The tutorials that we will createwill be more interesting and easy to understand as it involves the use of various Cam  studio applications. Based on my learning and understanding, I get to know that CamStudio is very useful for us as teacher. Its also function as printscreen tools on our computer which it can capture any activities that we are doing on the computer and later turn it as images.Next, is about data logging which is tools that we use to record data in experimentcontinuously and also give us an accurate reading compared than recording the datamanually. It also enabled us to plot graph directly from the reading of the experiment,whether in continuous time or fixed time. We don’t have to spend our time on waiting acomplete graph plotting because it’s all will be done automatically. Sensors are theimportant elements that must be present during data logging process. I had beenintroduced with many sensors which can record changes in ; temperature, Ph, humidity,CO 2 /O 2 concentration and force. Furthermore, we were given a chance to do anexperiment of data logging which involved any suitable sensors. Based on this learning, Ican conclude that data logging can help us to do our experiments more easier andrepeatable besides help us to interprete experiment data more accurately.About simulation and modeling, I think this is something that is quite usual to be heardbefore as my teacher in school had often used it. Simulation is something that did notinvolved any variables changes, for example the process of plant growth development.For modeling, it is usually involved variables changes and it is related with JAVAapplications. By using simulation and modeling, we as teacher can deliver our teachingmore effectively and interesting. Students will be eager to know more about their lessonsby using simulation and modeling. Besides, they can reach to the area that impossible tobe reached such as into our lungs, kidney, blood circulation system and digestivesystems. I think this is something useful and benefits to us as a becoming new teacher in explaining biology processes to our students more deeply and in a good manner.E-Portfolio is also our main task for completing this course successfully. By E-Portfolio, Ican share about my personal view of opinion in a professional manner, write about myeducation journey continuously, share my thoughts, opinion, experience and knowledgemore often and controllable.As conclusion, I wish my learning on ICT this semester can upgrade my teaching skills,enhance and broaden my mind on ICT world. The knowledge that I’ve obtained from thiscourse is very useful for me as a teacher later, especially when I want to attract mystudent’s attention in order to help them understand the lessons effectively. This coursehad really inspired me to become an ICT-based teacher which is not only focused onsubject content only, but also applied modern technology that was continuously evolvedaround us to be practiced in our teaching and learning process. Now, it is proven thatmodern technology actually helps us, not make us difficult as people said before. I wasso satisfied in learning this subject as it really fulfilled my needs as future technology-based knowledge teacher which can teach and educate our next generation better, for abetter life.
