关于我

有时我喜欢安静,有时我喜欢热闹。 有时我喜欢加入人群,有时我喜欢远离他们,独自呆着。 冬天我渴望阳光,夏天我盼望下雪。 春去秋来,不变的是我的学术信仰、志向和兴趣。一直思考着:什么是语用?为什么要研究语用?怎样研究语用?研究语用需要具备哪些素质?谁在研究语用?语用研究的走势如何?存在哪些问题?等等。 我深信“宁静”方可“致远”的道理,努力走向这种境界。 求学、求真的路上,深深领悟到过程决定结果,过程大于结果,远远大于结果。

Strengthen STEM education in Malaysia 2015-12-16 Edu2U Lim Hong and Gabriel Soh from SJK(C) Chong Wen putting their heads together to live code a number generator for the lucky draw using the Scratch program. With the influx of apps and electronical devices, it is surprising that the traditional classroom scene remains the same in Malaysia. Where the teacher stands in front of the students sitting at their desks taking down notes written on the blackboard. Meanwhile in developed countries, talks and debates have been going back and forth to change the traditional classroom to one that is more active and vibrant to develop skills needed in STEM fields. An acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, these countries understood the need to strengthen STEM education in order to meet the demands of the continual advancement of technology. Dubbed as STEM CS, the program was developed by iCarnegie Global Learning and Robomatter based on the resources provided by Carnegie Mellon which is regularly recognized and ranked as the No. 1 Computer Science School in the United States of America. The program will cover Computer Science and Coding by providing a whole classroom package with plenty of activities for students and also include resources for teachers. The program is specially designed to teach students computer programming to solve real world problems by getting them to learn by doing. This immerses them in the problem-solving process as well as help develop 21st century skills such as teamwork and creativity all in a fun and stimulating environment. “By bringing in STEM CS, we hope to address the gap and bring our education system and our schools up to par with the rest of the developed world,” said CEO of Eduspec Holdings Berhad, EH Lim. “STEM CS is meant to change the way how students learn in classes. By learning things hands on, students are also able to develop their critical thinking skills and retain information better. Plus, it makes learning fun which is how it should be in our schools,” Lim added. Also in collaboration with CM Asia Learning, Eduspec will also simultaneously introduce STEM CS to other ASEAN countries namely Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines, Vietnam, Myanmar, and a couple of North Asia countries. Schools in South Korea and Taiwan have already signed up for this program. E H Lim also mentioned bringing in STEM CS to Malaysia is in line with the government’s initiative to encourage more students to pursue STEM-related career. The National Education Blueprint has highlighted the need to promote and strengthen STEM education in schools in order to increase the number of students who will pursue STEM related fields to 60 percent and in turn help boost the country’s economy. Speaking as one of the speakers for the talk show during the launch, Director of Global Education Strategy for Robomatter, Jason McKenna emphasised the need for youths to start the program as young as possible. “This is because there is a need for digital skills in the workforce. How much more will it be needed in the future when the current work field is already demanding for critical and analytical thinking that is developed from studying STEM subjects that is not limited to just coding and computer science,” said McKenna. McKenna further urged all parents and educators present to consider pushing for STEM CS to be implemented at all schools as he and the other speakers discussed the advantages students can gain from learning coding and computer science. Educators and parents who are interested and need more information on the STEM CS program can refer to CM Asia Learning’s website at cmasialearning.com. Report
