I enjoys watching video from others group because all of them make a great video. Well it such a great work for since we are an amateur in production of video. All of them make full effort and work hard.

Besides that, our poster also praised by Dr as she see that a lot of improvement we had made. As well as other, their poster also so amazing just like a professional works. I most love poster of GG Creation group as their poster is very pure, I think haha.. I also like their video most compare to other videos. I think they deserve to become champion.

My group is fourth places but we accept the decision because others group is better than us. But actually all of us are winner just like what Dr Rosseni said. Yes, you are totally right Dr. We are winner because we learn from zero until we know how to make a good quality of video and poster. I can used all knowledge that have been learned from this class in my future. As I am taking TESL, so probability of me to become a teacher is quite high. Maybe I can apply all this knowlegde in classroom. Last but not least, thank you so much to Dr Rosseni, Mr Helmi, Brother  Fuad and Kak Ana for teach and guide all of us in this class. I really really appreciates it..

Here are some pictures taken of this day. It such a sweet memory with all of you.

Reflection 13: Pre EduTechnovation Day

Published December 11, 2013 by norzahidah

Assalamualaikum w.b.t and hello everybody.. 🙂

Today is Pre EduTechnovation Day. The day that make my coursemates and I become stress as we have to present our full video, presentation of slide and show our poster. There are many work that have to be done related to that day.

Before that, we need to upload our video into Facebook’s group so that others and lecturer can watch and give their comment and opinion. By that, we can improve our work in making a better quality of video. We receive a lot of comment from Dr Rosseni about our video and poster. There are a lot of things need to be improve as what Dr says that the message that we want to deliver did not reach to people’s heart. She also says that our video is typical. My group accept all this comment and we will make it according to what Dr’s says.

We decide to make a few change in our video although all of us lack in time. We feel stress but we stay strong as we are in a team. We want to add other some newspaper cutting and interview about abandoned mother with public people into the video. We also edit our poster as there are some of the part that Dr do not satisfy.

Finally, on the EduTechnovation Day, we do our best in presentation of video and poster. I am so grateful that that my coursemates and tutors understand the message that we wabt to deliver through the video. Alhamdulillah.. 🙂

I think that all for this time. Thank you so much. 🙂

Reflection 12

Published December 3, 2013 by norzahidah

Assalamualaikum w.b.t and hi everyone! =)

Here is quote that I find it can motivates me in my every job.

motivational-quotes-dont-strop-when-you-are-tired

      This is such a hectic week for all of us as we get a bundle of assignment. I have to stay up until morning to finish the assignment. I feel a little bit stress because there are only 2 weeks to go before study week.

Today we got some lecture from Dr Rosseni about expectation of marks that we will get with our assignment all this time. It such a surprising news for us as Dr says that based on marks she count for our blog’s reflection. The highest is 10 out of 30. Oh my God! How I can get A in this subject if carry marks just a little.

I feel very stressful but I take it as a challenge for me to improve my blog’s quality. Before this, I also realizes that I just report what I have learns in the class and not really doing reflection in true context. I also like to do reflection at last minutes. But we still have chance to improve our marks. Dr says that she will evaluate 5 of our best reflection in the past and 5 from our remaining weeks.

Besides that, Mr Helmi, Bro Fuad and Kak Ana also watch our video progress. They do comment our video such as some of part they think  too long. So, we should make it shorter and precise. Mr Helmi says that we may include some texts to make others more understand our video.

I think that all for today as I do not have much to say.. Thank you..

Reflection 11: Making Our Own Poster

Published November 25, 2013 by norzahidah

Assalamualaikum and hi everybody. Today is such a good day for me.

I am totally excited as today we are going to learn on how to make a poster! We also have to make a poster for our video. We will present our poster on Edutechnovation Day that will be held on week 14. At that day, we have to present our slide, video and poster altogether. It is a big day for this subject.

The poster that we makes must suit with our video. It must portrays our ideas as we are going to do about ‘ the appreciation of His favour’ which is mother. So, we have to find something that show how grateful we are to have a mother. We also may add some effect on the poster to make it more real.

So, here are few steps on how to create a poster:

1) Set your canvas

FILE > NEW

PRESET > INTERNATIONAL PAPER

SIZE > A3

RESOLUTION > 100 – 150

Then click OK.

2) Import a picture as the background

FILE > OPEN > CHOOSE A PICTURE FROM THE FILE IN YOUR COMPUTER

3) To have a landscape image

IMAGE > IMAGE ROTATION > 90′ CLOCKWISE

4) To set up a new canvas

WINDOW > ARRANGE > FLOAT ALL IN WINDOW ( do it two times)

5) To drag the picture from the 1st canvas

Click on the MOVE TOOL icon then drag the picture

6)To adjust the size of the picture

Click the box SHOW TRANSFORM CONTROL.

Press the left click with the SHIFT button on your keypad simultaneously to adjust the size of the picture without changing the picture’s proportion.

7) To colour the background

WINDOW > LAYERS > BACKGROUND > GRADIENT TOOL > BUCKET TOOL > Choose the colour that you prefer > Move the cursor to the background then click it

8) To give effects to the picture

IMAGE > ADJUSTMENT > PHOTO FILTER

9) To add text to the picture

 SELECTION TOOL > TEXT

Click the cursor on your image and then type your text

10) To change the colour of your text

Right click on the TEXT’S LAYER > BLENDING OPTIONS

In the future, I think I will use poster in the classroom as I am a teacher to be. By using poster, it will attract students become more interested with learning. Students nowadays are more advance in technology and they want something new in learning.

That all from me. Thanks for reading my post.. 🙂

Reflection 10: Presentation Video

Published November 18, 2013 by norzahidah

Assalamualaikum and good day everybody..

Today we are going to present the progress in our video. We only manage shoot for the first three scene for this time. Another scene will be shoot next time.  This presentation will be evaluate as all of us will be given marks. Actually it is midterm examination. It is really suprising as we have never sit for midterm before this. Moreover we have been told about it on last minute, so we do not have much time to make our preparation.

We have to sit together and discuss about the presentation. This is the guideline given for our content of slides:

  • prepare a medium of presentation by using powerpoint
  • the content includes the title, group members, title of the video, the objectives of making the video
  • presentation of the complete parts of the video and the edited ones
  • presentation of the scenes (complete or incomplete)
  • your expectation towards the video

We divide slide equally as all of us must speak in the front. I think there a lot of things that can be improved from our video as we get some feedback from Dr. Rosseni and Mr Helmi.

I think that all for today. Till we meet again next time. Assalamualaikum…. 🙂

Reflection 9: Adobe Photoshop CS4

Published November 11, 2013 by norzahidah

 Assalamualaikum w.b.t and hello all..

This time Mr. Helmi taught us on how to use Adobe Photoshop CS4. It actually my first time using this software because I am not really exposed in editing photos.

adobe_photoshop_cs4_icon_2

Adobe Photoshop CS4 or CS3 and many more can be used for edit our pictures so that we can add more effect to the picture. We have to upload a picture then we can start editing it. There are many effect and transition that we can apply into the picture.

I think that Mr Helmi taught us very fast because sometime I lost but after been given guidance by him, I can do it finally. I also asks help from my coursemates because some of them are already expert in using this software.

I think this software is very useful in our video project. We can use it to edit the picture, because we want to show different in present and past times.

Here is the picture that I have edited using this software.

On the left is picture before edit and on the right side is edited version.

That all for this time. Thank you.. 🙂
