A Brave New World!
Kuantan, 7 September 2018 - The Centre for Modern Languages and Human Sciences (CMLHS) in collaboration with Faculty of Industrial Sciences (FIST) alongside Jabatan Pendidikan Negeri Pahang, Bahagian Teknologi Pendidikan Negeri Pahang, Kementerian Pendidikan Malaysia and Jabatan Hal Ehwal Korporat & Kualiti UMP joined hands to conduct the Fun in English programme in conjunction with Kem Saintis Muda 2018 for secondary school students.
CMLHS has always taken pride in her ultra-modern language labs that house carefully selected educational software and websites in its daily classrooms. The two-hour programme was spearheaded by Encik Mohd Shafeirul Zaman Bin Abd Majid and jointly hosted by Dr Azwin Arif bin Abdul Rahim, Dr Nor Yazi Binti Khamis, Arulselvi Uthayakumaran and Nursyaheedah Binti Muhammad Isa to ensure the objectivity of the programme was met. CMLHS is no stranger to avant-garde methods in helping and exposing students to the use of technology to maximise the learning of language skills. The team of 5 introduced Kahoot! as an intermediary platform to create multiple-choice quizzes to rally in the fun and excitement in learning languages in classrooms. The fun and excitement shown by teachers and students during the 2-hour Fun in English programme will hopefully inspire CMLHS to bring forth newer or up-to-date workshops and day programmes to bring aboard more exciting games and educational software to be used in language classrooms. The CMLHS staff would like to express their deepest gratitude and thanks to Faculty of Industrial Sciences for inviting us to be part of this programme.
