7 Effective Items :)

Posted: March 26, 2011 in Uncategorized

Hello my dear bloggers, I am back with the 11th week’s post. It’s week 11 and I did not realize that assignment three is due in two weeks time. This is just about ICT and I just cant imagine on the assignments for other subjects. Oh God, I am getting tensed up. :p Lets just come back to the point. This week’s blog will be on our journey in completing Assignment 3. As for my group, we started to discuss on assignment 3 a few weeks ago and I thank God that we managed to actually decide on the topics and divide our work load. I think I should be really glad to have cooperative group members who are actually very understanding and tolerance. Not only that, I should actually thank Miss Ng and Miss Marsyitah for guiding us through the assignment and solving our problems. Without all these guidance, I personally think we will face many problems. We have managed to complete the draft of the lesson plans and task sheets and waiting for Miss Ng’s comments.

Well, I have thought in depth about the  seven possible items which will ensure an effective student-centredpersonalized learning and higher-order-thinking lesson. I know it is not easy to plan a lesson which requires all these criteria. But I think after the lessons that we have gone through with Miss Ng about personalize learning, I believe I have the confidence that I will be able to plan a perfect lesson which has all the above criteria.  Below are the seven items which I think would make the lesson effective and interesting for the pupils;

1) Inculcation of interesting teaching aids.

As for me, I think teaching aids plays an important role in making the lesson to be an effective lesson. The teaching aids that we use for a lesson will actually interest the pupils and increases the pupil’s motivation to learn. We have managed to design as teaching aids as interesting as possible and I realized that my group gave importance in designing the teaching aids. For an example, for school A whereby we dont have any ICT facilities, we have designed teaching aids such as flash cards with appealing and interesting pictures. Besides that, the power point presentations used are also not simple but we have put in animations and also background colours which will actually captivate pupils attentions towards the lesson. Besides that, the worksheets that we have prepared are also not simple but with pictures and also questions that promotes high order thinking skills among the pupils. These interesting and colourful teaching aids will actually motivate the pupils and I feel that the lesson will be more interesting rather than just being very dull. Not only that, audio visual devices enhance the interest of students, especially students of quite young age. As children take interest in colours and different devices, instruments, it’s quite easy to teach them and their understanding of the concept will be better. I feel that this teaching aids will actually enable the pupils to think critically.

2) Group activities

Another important item that I think is important is activities which involves group work. Group work can create an effective student centered learning among the pupils. The teacher can design at least one group work for each lesson because this will actually make the pupils to be independently solving the problems and the task given to them. In this assignment 3, we have managed to create as many as group work as possible. We felt it is important because it actually gives pupils a chance to learn from one another. Not only that, it helps the learners to involve into various interaction types and support a more conducive and cooperative class. Moreover, they can boost their communication experience and share their opinions to reach a final solution. It is a simple forum for students to solve a problem with their own perspective. Group work helps students to improve their cognitive and affective aspects. In assignment 3, we have created activities such as games which requires pupils to work in groups.

3) Critical and creative thinking skills activities.

In a lesson, it is important for a teacher to design activities which requires pupils to think critically and also creatively. I think it is essential for us to design task sheets and activities which requires pupils to think and not so direct I would say. In assignment 3, we have created a number of activities which requires pupils to think critically. For example, activities such as riddles. Not only that, there are also tasks which allows pupils to show their creativity such asking pupils to draw the vegetables that they know in the set induction stage. These kind pf activities allows pupils to enhance their thinking skills which I think is an essential factor in promoting high order thinking skills among the pupils.

4) Immediate and constructive feedbacks.

I think feedback is an essential process that should take place in all the lessons. I feel that this will give pupils an idea on how far their learning has taken place. I think that the feedback can be in any form. For example, praises or even correcting the pupil’s mistakes immediately is also a sort of feedback. A great deal of learning takes place as your pupils are completing their task, and the feedback that a teacher gives to the pupils be very helpful in checking whether their current study strategies are effective. Constructive feedback helps the pupils to improvise himself, to learn new skills, to rectify his mistake so that it is not repeated again. In the activities that I have designed for assignment 3, I made sure that there are immediate feedback given to the pupils. I feel that the feedback need not to be very long but it can be just a simple and effective one. As we all know, this will also enhance the personalize learning process among the pupils.

5) ICT in the lesson.

ICT is one of the important item which promotes high order thinking skills, student centered learning and also the personalize learning process among the pupils. Using ICT contributes positively to the personal development of pupils . It developed their skills of working independently and cooperatively and was in most cases motivating and engaging themselves in the activities. I personally feel that ICT is an effective way to enable pupils to work independently or I would say to promote a student centered learning environment in the classroom. For example, ICT tools such as Kerpoof Studio and even Stripgenerator enables pupils to work independently and all a teacher needs to do is just scaffolding the pupils to complete the task. This is because the activities are very direct and pupils will be able to explore everything by themselves.

6) Pupils prior knowledge

Prior knowledge is an important factor that all the teachers should consider in planning an effective lesson. This is because it gives us a chance to assess on their prior knowledge and it gives pupils a chance to activate their related schemata. When students come into a classroom, they enter with a wide range of experiences and come from many cultures. They have ideas, knowledge and concepts that are already formed. Some of this knowledge may be incorrect and some might be right on target, but needs expansion. So, I think we as teachers need to help the pupils in expanding their prior knowledge. This prior knowledge is very important to acknowledge in order to motivate student learning. As in our lesson plans, we made it a point to consider the pupils prior knowledge in planning a lesson. For example, in the set induction stage, pupils are asked to name the fruits that they know even before starting the lessons.

7) Assessment and Evaluation

Finally, the important item that we considered is the assessment and evaluation. I think it is important for a teacher to have the assessment and evaluation section in all the lessons. This will actually enable the personalize learning process to take place. Assessment will help a teacher to have a clear idea on the pupil’s level of understanding on the topic taught for the day. For instance, creating a simple rubrics in assessing pupil’s speaking skills will actually help a teacher to evaluate on the pupil’s proficiency level. I think in most of the lesson plans for assignment 3, we have considered on the assessment and evaluation part. I personally feel it is an important factor to be taken into consideration.


I think we have come to an end for this week’s post. See you all again for another three weeks. I am seriously going to miss blogging and I hope I will be able to continue even when I start working. Bye Bye. Enjoy doing all the assignments!!! I know we CAN DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

New e-book!!!!

Posted: March 16, 2011 in Uncategorized

Hello dear bloggers, I am back again this week to blog on my e-book. In this modern world, with the advancement in technology, printed books are no longer famous or I would say wanted. Nowadays, even the pupils are more comfortable  using e-book to read a story. The Oxford Dictionary of English defines the e-book as “an electronic version of a printed book, but e-books can and do exist without any printed equivalent.  Personal computers and some cell phones can also be used to read e-books. Well, its the time for me to create an e book for this week’s blog.  Before editing my e book I have actually gone through the notes or I would say the guidelines to create a good e book which was sent by Miss Ng. Besides that, I also did a few readings on the advantages of using e-book.

These are the few advantages of using e book:

1.Save Money – No shipping, no taxes, and the lowest prices.
2.Control Viewing – Read online or print out a hardcopy.
3.Read Easily – Enlarge or reduce text size with a click.
4.Navigate Easily – Hyperlinked Table of Contents.
5.Search Effortlessly – Search capabilities with PDF format.
6.Purchase Easily – Use Credit Card, book is delivered digitally.
7.Access Instantly – You will be reading your book in minutes!
8.Choose Printing Options – Print a few pages at a time.

9.Save Paper – Print multiple pages on one sheet.


10.Be Guilt Free – No fossil fuels used for E book

distribution
11.Enjoy Variety – Able to change text and background colours.


I think it’s time to check on the editing that I have done on my e book. Firstly, I will roughly give you all an idea about my e book. Its a story about a girl introducing the fruits in her orchard. I have made a few changes to my e book because the I felt that my e book was not appealing enough and I personally think that it did not meet the criteria of an e book. Below are the changes that I have made:

a) The changes that I made is on the background of the slides and also the font used in the e book. I feel that the font that I used was not suitable as pupils will have problems to read and I realized that the background that I used was also not so appealing and attractive. The first slide itself did not give an appealing mood to the pupils to read the book. Thus, I decided to change the background and also the font used.

Before:

After:

b) Other than that, I also did some changes to the story because I realized that the story was not interactive enough as I did not create any questions for the pupils to think about when they are reading the story. I would say the story was a bit monotonous and the story did not provoke the pupils to think critically. The slide above shows that I have actually asked questions before taking the pupils direct into the story.

Before:

After:

c) I also edited a few slides whereby I actually made the pupils to guess the names of the fruits before revealing to the them. I realized that this will actually make the pupils to think when they are reading the story.
Before:
After:

These are the some of the changes that I have made to my e book. As a whole, I think I have made my e book to be more interactive rather than just asking the pupils to read the story. Not only that, I realized the background and also the font also matters in making my e book good one. I hope these changes will make my e book to be more appealing and interesting to the students. I think thats all for now, see you all soon in the coming weeks. I hope you will enjoy reading this post. Take care. 🙂

Personalized learning

Posted: March 4, 2011 in Uncategorized

Hello dear bloggers, I am back again and I have to tell you all that we are already in week 8. I think time is really running very fast and in another six weeks time, we will be finishing our course. SIX years is coming to an end. I am sure you would have started being emotional after reading this. Oops I am sorry. :p

Well, this week’s blog is all about PERSONALIZED LEARNING. I have to agree that personalized learning is a wonderful process that all the teachers should carry out in the classroom. After reading a few articles about personalized learning, I feel that this process honors and recognizes unique gifts, skills, passions and attributes of each child. As a future teacher, I realize that activities such as parental involvement, smaller class sizes, more one-on-one teacher and student interaction, attention to differences in learning styles, technology access, varied learning environments, teacher and parent development programs, and choices in curriculum programs all contributes to the development of personalized learning. I think it is not easy for us as future teachers to create personalized learning in the classroom but at the same time I think it is “NOT IMPOSSIBLE” !!!!

For a start today I will create a lesson using the ICT tools which actually involves personalized learnings. There were many websites given by Miss Ng for us to explore in order to create personalized learning. As for me I feel “Build your Wild Self “ is an interesting ICT tool. This tool actually allows pupils to express their creativeness.

This is the lesson that I have created using this ICT tool and I have inculcated the personalized learning in the lesson.

Target students: Year 3 (High proficiency level)

Language focus: Nouns (parts of body of animals)

Previous knowledge: Nouns (parts of body of a human)

Steps.

1. Teacher asks pupils a few question regarding the previous lesson on the body parts of human.

2. Teacher tells pupils that they will be learning on the body parts of animals today.

3. Teacher plays a video and asks pupils to watch the video.

4. Teacher pastes a few flash cards on the board.

5. Teacher teaches pupils on the different body parts of a animals.

6. Teacher drills pupils on the spelling of the body parts.

7. Then, teacher distributes a work sheet to the pupils. In the work sheet, pupils are required to fill in the blanks using the names of the body parts that they have learnt.

For an example: This is an elephant. An elephant has four ________________. 

8. Teacher tells pupils to complete the work sheet individually.

9. Teacher goes through the answers with the pupils.

10. Then, teacher asks the pupils to use the “Build your wild self” and create themselves wildly or even normally.

11. Teacher tells pupils that they can use all the tools given and create themselves as creatively as they want.

12. Teacher flash out an example on the screen.

13. Teacher tells pupils that they have to talk about their avatar of themselves when they have completed the task.

14. Teacher tells pupils to save the avatar as she will be printing the drawings and pasting it on the display board.

Thus, this is the end of the lesson. I think this lesson gives pupil the freedom to be creative in exploring the tool. Actually, this the pupils can create the avatar that they want without any restrictions and the pupils will able to explore each and every body parts available there. Besides that, I think this tool gives pupils a chance to be more independent as they get to work on the tools by themselves. I like this tool because it is very direct and user friendly. The pupils can explore the tool by themselves. I think that’s all for now. See you all again the next post in week 9!!!!!.

 

Reflection…:)

Posted: March 1, 2011 in Uncategorized

Hey my dear friends, I am back to reflect on my experiences of adapting the “Who Wants To Be a Millionaire” game to suit the classroom purposes, on my friend’s presentations and also on the feedback activity. Well, for me reflection is all about recollecting all the experiences. I have divided my reflection into three different areas. Firstly I will reflect on how the process of adapting the “Who Wants To Be a Millionaire” game and then continued by on my friend’s presentation and finally on the feedback activity.

a) Adapting the game.

Well, I would say that it was not easy to adapt the game to suit the primary school pupils. This is because as we have watched on the television, this game is mainly for one player and imagine we have to adapt the game for thirty to fourty students in the classroom. That was a bit difficult but I would say that it was “CHALLENGING” for my group.Firstly, we changed the name of the game to “Who Wants to be a Genius”.

We felt that this name will be catchy and the pupils will have more interest in playing the game. My group decided to change the stages of the money into the names of animals. Many of our friends commented that these names might not be suitable for the pupils. But the rational of using these names was to let pupils know that they should not use the names of animals to tease each other but it can be also used in educational purposes.

To reflect on the whole process of adapting this game, it was really challenging and I believe that it teaches us to be more creative in preparing activities for the pupils. I feel that it is not merely taking activities available and carrying out in the classroom but this process of adapting the game tells me that I can actually adapt the game to suit my pupils. We can actually use many  television game shows such as “Are you smarter than the fifth grader” and adapt it to suit the pupils and the topics that we want to teach the pupils.

b) My friend’s presentations.

It’s time to reflect on my friend’s presentations. I have to agree that all the presentations were simply superb and I could see that all the groups have done their level best in adapting the game to suit the pupils. The presentations of my friends actually made me to realize that creativity is an important factor and another important factor is team work. I realize that without a good team work, we would not able to come out with different ways of adapting the game. Besides that, I also realize that when we are working in groups,we tend get more ideas and I feel that it is really good because that will make our end product to be more effective.

c) Feedback

Giving feedback is actually an effective process to actually learn from our weaknesses and develop ourselves with the strength. As for me, it makes me to feel that I tend to have the critical and creative thinking when I am actually giving feedback and even when I am giving feedback for my friends, I realize that I am also learning from that particular process.

That’s all for this week… See you all again in the next week’s post… bye…

Barn Buddy

Posted: February 13, 2011 in Uncategorized


Hello, dear bloggers I am back again. I think the month of February is full of celebrations. After Chinese New year, and now it is Valentine’s Day on the 14th February. I would like to wish Happy Valentine’s Day to all out there. And now let me come back to the point for this week. When I actually got the email from Miss Ng, I was really thinking very hard on how to actually create a lesson using online game as I have not done ONE before. It was really difficult for me to choose one game which is really suitable for the pupils and the most difficult part was integrating the online game in the lesson. It took me almost one day to complete this and I think I have just created a simple lesson using the online game available in Facebook named “BARN BUDDY”. I chose this game because I find it suitable for the lower primary kids, very direct and the most important thing is that it is colourful. I have created an ICT lesson and I managed to integrate the game in certain part of the lesson. Thus, presenting to you a simple lesson created using an online game called “BARN BUDDY”. Hope you will like the lesson.

Lesson:

Class: Year 2 (High proficiency)

Theme: Food I like

Topic: Fruits and Vegetables

Focused skill: Listening

Integrated skills: Speaking and Reading

Behavioural Objectives: By the end of the lesson, pupils should be able to:

a)name the fruits and vegetables

b)spell the names of fruits and vegetables

Language focus: Nouns (Names of fruits and vegetables)

Teaching Aids: video, power point presentation, task sheets and also online game (Barn Buddy)

Before/Engage:

a)    Teacher asks pupils a few questions regarding their favourite fruits and vegetables.

b)   Teacher plays a video and asks pupils to watch the video carefully.

c)    Teacher tells pupils that they are going to learn the names vegetables and fruits.

During/Explore:

a)    Teacher teaches pupils on the names of fruits and vegetables using the power point presentation slides.

b)   Teacher flashes out the picture of the fruit or vegetable and the name of the picture.

c)    Teacher drills pupils on the spelling of fruits and vegetables.

d)   Teacher also teaches pupils on how to make simple sentences using the names of fruits and vegetables. For an example;It’s an apple.

e)   Teacher asks pupils to complete the task sheet that has been uploaded in their computers.

f)    Teacher discusses the answers with the pupils.

g)     Teacher tells pupils that they are going to play an interesting online game.

h)   Teacher explains the instructions to the pupils.

i)    Teacher tells pupils that they have to listen carefully to the teacher on the name of the fruits or vegetables that she is going to say and pupils have to plant that particular vegetable in the game.

j)   Teacher then flashes the picture on the screen to enable pupils to check their answers.

k)   After that, teacher allows pupils to water the plants and teacher tells pupils that they will harvest the plants once its grown.

After/Elaborate:

1. Teacher tells pupils that there will be a spelling competition on the names of vegetables and fruits that they have learnt.

2. After the spelling competition, teacher reinforces on the lesson taught for the day.

This is a simple lesson that I have created using the Barn Buddy game. From this game pupils will be able learn vocabularies which I think is really important for the lower primary pupils. That’s all for now. I hope you will enjoy reading the post. See you all again in the next post. Till then bye bye..:)

Kerpoof Studio.

Posted: January 31, 2011 in Uncategorized


Hello my dear bloggers, I am back in action again. First of all, I would like to wish Happy Chinese New Year to all my Chinese friends and not to forget to Miss Ng too. And according to the Chinese zodiac, this year is considered as rabbit’s year. So, for those who are born in 1987, this year is ours. :p Let’s rock. Well, I think I am crapping talking so much about something which is not related to the post. 🙂 Let me come back to the reality. 🙂

In this week’s post, I will explaining thoroughly on the functions of an ICT tool. First of all, I would like to thank Miss Ng for introducing us to the different types of ICT tools, which I think I have not even heard about the names. After trying out all the 11 ICT tools given, I realized that I have learnt a lot. It tool almost one day to finish *experimenting* all the ICT tools. After all that, the ICT tool that has managed to gain my attention is “KERPOOF STUDIO”. There are many reasons on why I decided to choose this ICT tool. Let me give you all a brief idea about Kerpoof Studio.

1. What is Kerpoof Studio?


Kerpoof Studio is operated and managed by the Walt Disney Company. This ICT tool is all about being creative, having fun and at the same time learning something out of it. (educational tools)

2. Functions of Kerpoof!!!

Firstly, I will describe on the functions of this ICT tool. I realized that this ICT tool has many interesting functions. Kerpoof allows  us to create movies, make cards, make a picture, spell a picture, make a drawing and tell a story. Not only that, there are also interesting lesson plans for the teachers. As for me, I actually tried using most of the functions and I am glad to say that all the functions are very useful for us as future teachers. And you know what, they have LESSON PLANS!!! I actually downloaded a few lesson plans and I realized that they have very creative activities which I think I did not even thought about it when I was teaching my students. Well, other than lesson plans Kerpoof have many other interesting activities for the teachers. They have teacher accounts, classroom ideas, educational standards and also newsletters. I was really attracted to this particular activity named “teachers accounts”. This activity actually gives a chance to all the teachers to arrange the students based on classes and here the students are able to chat with one another and also post their creations on the class message board. The teacher has the chance to monitor on what the students are doing. I find this pretty interesting and captivating. We can create stories using the templates given, create movies and we can also use this ICT tool to have a spelling check with the pupils which I think will be very effective and the students will be very excited.

3. Limitations in Kerpoof

After going through this ICT tool for several times, I realized that there isn’t any serious problem that I could find. There is only one small problem whereby the pupils need internet connection to deal with Kerpoof Studio. Other than that, I think Kerpoof Studio does not have any limitations.

4. When can this tool be used?

This tool can be used by a teacher in many ways. Firstly, a teacher can use this tool to create interesting movies which is suitable for the lesson for the day. Other than that, the teacher also can use this tool to create stories. For an example, if the teacher wants to create a fairy tale story, then he or she can choose that particular template and create their own story. Moreover, as I have mentioned above, the teacher can use this tool to create a “teacher accounts” and keep in touch with the pupils. The pupils also can keep in touch with each other after school hours and even during holidays and the teacher can actually keep track on what the students are doing. The teacher can ask the pupils to create cards and upload it at the display board in their own account. That will be really interesting!!The teacher also can ask pupils to write an essay in a story form using the functions given in the “tell a story” page. Besides that, a teacher can also use the pictures given based on the settings to teach pupils on grammar. I tried with one of the picture by creating dialogues to teach pupils on present continuous.

As a whole, a teacher can use this tool to do MANY things to make our lessons to be interesting and effective to the pupils. Not only that, I also feel that the pupils themselves can learn a lot from this particular ICT tool. I believe that this ICT tool will make lessons to be very exciting for the pupils.

5. Is it friendly?

Well, I would say Kerpoof Studio was very friendly towards me. I did not face any problem when I was dealing with it unlike other ICT tools. Even though, there isn’t any guide for the new users but I believe we don’t need one because everything is very direct and it is not complicated at all. I would say this ICT tool will be very useful for teachers and also students.

6. Which standard is this tool suitable for?

I think this tool is suitable for the lower primary kids (Year 1 to year 3) pupils. This is because the activities in Kerpoof are more suitable for them compared to the upper primary kids.

7. Advantages of KERPOOF STUDIO!!!

a) user friendly

b) fun

c) many creative activities

d) interactive

e) colourful

f) exciting activities

As a whole, I would say that I am in love with Kerpoof Studio because it is simply easy to deal with and we can do many activities using this ICT tool. I hope I will be able to use this tool to create interesting lessons for my pupils in the future. That’s all for now and see you all again in the next post (week 5). Enjoy your holidays and Happy Chinese New Year my dear friends and Miss Ng.




TPACK in the LESSON!!!

Posted: January 21, 2011 in Uncategorized

Hello dear bloggers, I am back again to blog on integration of TPACK in my lesson. Well, before I start narrating on the lesson, let me give you all a rough idea on what is TPACK.  T: technological P:pedagogical  C: content  K: knowledge. Thus as a whole, TPACK means TECHNOLOGICAL PEDAGOGICAL AND CONTENT KNOWLEDGE. TPACK is basically used to develop learning activities which will enhance the pupil’s understanding on the lesson taught in the classroom. TPACK is also a kind of framework for the teachers to understand on the integration of technology in the lesson.

Now, I am sure that all you would have got a clear idea on what is TPACK. As I have said in my previous entry on the experiences of using ICT during the teaching practice, I did not really integrate technology in my lesson due to many obstacles and problems. Therefore, I have chosen my best lesson with the integration of ICT to explain on the how TPACK has involved in the lesson.

This was an English lesson with my year three students. The lesson was about teaching my pupils on the different types of traditional dances in Malaysia.

I have divided the explanation into two parts:

1st part

a) Technology knowledge

– In this lesson, I used mainly used technology to design the lesson. I used the Power point, laptop, videos and also projector. I integrated technology throughout my lesson. In the set induction part, I showed my pupils a short video on the mixture of different types of traditional dances.

Then, in the pre speaking stage I used power point to introduce to the pupils on the names of different types of dances. In the power point, there were also a short description on the particular dance.

In the while speaking stage, I carried out a info gap activity with the pupils.


Finally, in the post speaking stage, I played a game with the pupils which I designed on my own using the power point.

b) Pedagogical Knowledge

In the set induction stage, I used the questioning and responding approach whereby the pupils have to watch the video and response to the questions that I asked. In the pre speaking stage, I was actually teaching the pupils on the names of the different types of dances. Thus, the approach that I used was explaining and lecturing. However, at certain parts I did show videos and asked the pupils to dance. Thus, I have used the TPR approach too.  In the while listening stage and post listening stage, I actually used the social constructivism approach. This is because the pupils have to discuss with their partner to complete the task given.

c) Content Knowledge

The content for the lesson was on the names of the traditional dances in Malaysia whereby the language focus will be nouns. I focused more on the spelling of the names of the traditional dances in Malaysia.

2nd part

a) How content knowledge is being taught using the pedagogical content knowledge?

– The objective of the lesson was to introduce to the pupils on the names of the traditional dances in Malaysia to the pupils. I actually used the power point to explain to the pupils on the brief history of the traditional dances in Malaysia. Not only that, I also played a few videos to give pupils a rough idea on how the dances will be and I also asked the pupils to dance while watching the video. This shows that I have also used the TPR approach as the pupils have to dance.

In the post speaking stage, I carried out a game whereby the pupils have to work in groups to answer the questions. Thus, the social constructivism approach is applied in the game. I designed the game in the form of power point.

b) How technology knowledge helps the pedagogy knowledge to make the students get the content knowledge?

As I have said earlier, this was merely a lesson which is designed using the technological tools. In the set induction stage, IO showed pupils a short video on the different types of traditional dances available in Malaysia. I used the video to allow pupils to have a rough idea on the types of dances and also to elicit responses from the pupils. Not only that, this video is also used to check on the pupil’s previous knowledge. In the pre speaking stage I used power point to introduce the names of the different types of dances to the pupils and to explain to the pupils on the history of the dance. The power point helped me in making the lesson to be  more interesting and exciting. Finally in the post speaking stage, I played a game with the pupils using the power point. It made the pupils to be more interested and it was an effective way for me to check on the pupil’s understanding on what had been taught for the day.

At last, I am done with the blog!! I hope I have thoroughly explained on how TPACK has influenced my lesson. I hope you guys will enjoy reading my blog.That’s all for now with TPACK!!!!!! Will be back again next week.
