I am not lazy and I am good at time management. However, it is impossible to control myself this week when people seem to ask me to accomplish all my work of a semester in 7 days.
I spent a lot of time readings all the links and even print them out for reading when I am not with my PC. Most of the information and hints are very familiar to me. I do not mean that the reading this week was not meaningful, but it gives me another idea. I am pretty sure that I have known about 80% of them and applied the techniques for building interactive powerpoint many times.
I have an idea of why I do not try to focus on writing these experiences using my own language (both English and Vietnamese) to share with more friends and teachers who are not familiar with English. I bet that some people have done that in my country; however, it is better if the ones who do that focus on teaching and working experiences to be shared.
I posted most of my ideas this week late - at the end of the week since I have some things to do in the remote area where the internet access is quite difficult. I have read any of my friends' blog this week but I did view most of my friends' powerpoint files on our class wiki. I have just posted mine there too and spend time to write a new post before I head back to read the rest of my friends' discussion in Nicenet.
I have started the project, but I still find problems with the notion of "changes" or conduct some changes to the current teaching courses. Why? I am excited to work on a course of problem-solving skills which I am not teaching right now and it is quite difficult for me to modify it when it has not happened yet. Of course, I have some other courses right now. I am still confused to give decision on what I should do as I usually ask Deborah for what have posted if the posts are related to the course that I am developing.
I have learned a lot from my friends this week. They give me a different view of using powerpoint in teaching although it is somewhat simple to me. The other hard-working week is waiting and I still face a lot of problems with my current job because it is the last weeks of an academic year. Good luck to me and peace to all of you!
