This is week 13 and what we learn during this week lecture is all about Web 2.0 Tools and how it can be use in education. This lecture was held by Dr Hazrati. Web 2.0 is about the social media as a major component that can be use in education such as internet applications which allow sharing and collaboration opportunities to people and help them to express themselves online. Example of Web 2.0 include hosted services (Google Maps), Web applications (Google Docs, Flickr), Video sharing sites (YouTube), wikis (Media Wiki), blogs (WordPress), social networking (Facebook) and many more. There are so many advantages in using web 2.0 such as it available at any time, any place, variety of media. Learners can actively be involved in build the knowledge and can create dynamic learning.
As future teachers, we learn web 2.0 because we will continue to be a 21st century educator for our very important communities which is our students. The use of Web 2.0 Tools to support instruction is vital. The use of Web 2.0 tools is transforming our work and the way we support students in the classroom. As schools bring more technology into their classrooms, teachers will in turn strive to put more technology in their students. They can be used to teach curriculum content, store data, create or edit video, edit photos, collaborate and so on. Now, we as students in university are using ‘MOOC’ for our courses that runs online. So it is true that we cannot run from the rise of technology. We must adapt with it and use it in our learning and teaching process.
Media evaluation is something new that we learn in week 12. Media evaluation is an essential methodology to track the effectiveness of the ad campaign. Media evaluation is very important to ensure that strategy we made in order to know if the media designed with certain goals and objectives has been able to become efficient or not.
Besides, evaluating and assessing the suitability and effectiveness of a form of media. For example,radio and television. Media evaluation is the analysis of media content. It is considered by businesses to be one of the most accelerating vehicles of mass communications research.
Media evaluation process is very important in order to determine what the student is able to see and how the students using their vision. In addition, process of media evaluation will make easier for us to look which medium that is suitable to use in teaching and learning. For example, it can guide teacher to make a decision about the best medium for a given student, such as braille, print, dual media, auditory, tactile or some combination.
In conclusion, we know what is the importance of media evaluation process. Whether the goals and objective are being achieve as what it should be or make other people such as teacher to choose suitable medium in order to use in their teaching and learning with the students.
