Pendidik Berjayakah kita?

Menjadi seorang pendidik pada masa kini sememangnya suatu bidang yang sukar. Sesetengah individu menganggap bahawa kerjaya guru, tutor, pensyarah atau pendidik secara umumnya merupakan kerjaya yang enteng dan tidak memerlukan kepakaran yang tinggi. Namun, harus kita sedar bahawa semua karakter berjaya bermula dengan pembelajaran bersama seorang guru.

 

Siapakah pendidik?

Seorang pendidik bertanggungjawab untuk menyampaikan ilmu kepada anak didiknya. Ilmu yang dimaksudkan bukanlah keduniaan semata, atau subjek pelajaran di sekolah sahaja; guru menjahit, mentor teknik perniagaan, pusat kemahiran membaiki kereta, dan sebagainya. Kesemua yang tersebut adalah pendidik secara dasarnya.

 

Pendidik berjaya? Atau sebaliknya?

Jadi, apakah yang membezakan antara seorang pendidik berjaya dengan seorang pendidik yang biasa-biasa?

Jawapannya terletak pada anak didik itu: Fahamkah dia?

Seorang pendidik berjaya akan berasa bertanggungjawab untuk memastikan bahawa anak didiknya mendapat setiap butir ilmu yang ingin disampaikan kepadanya. Sikap sekadar “melepaskan batuk di tangga” bukanlah ciri seorang pendidik yang berjaya. Ini membuatkan saya teringat kepada seorang pensyarah saya sewaktu di universiti dahulu. Dr. Chooi namanya. Mengajarkan subjek Teori Nombor. Pada suatu hari, kelas agak lengang kerana ramai pelajar ‘menyambung’ cuti umum hari sebelumnya. Kata-kata Dr. Chooi pada waktu itu tidak dapat saya lupakan:

“Wow! So many people absent today ah? But don’t mind, we will proceed the class as usual. The rest of you who are here right now, good for you. Lack of students won’t make me less a teacher I am. But remember, you came here to study, and your parents sent you here for you to study, and don’t waste that. Always study and give your best for today. The subject is too hard?  Don’t worry and  study your best for it.  Give your best in everything.  And if it ever occurred any difficulties for you, you can  always come  and see me and  I WILL do my best to help you.  Yesterday’s story was yesterday’s story. Just do your best for today and don’t worry too much about the past and the future.”

Dan kuliah dimulakan selepas itu. Saya boleh katakan bahawa kata-katanya itu merupakan motivasi saya sehingga kini. Seorang pendidik yang begitu bersemangat dalam mendidik anak muridnya. Dr. Chooi juga meluahkan rasa kecewanya kepada sesetengah pendidik yang mendidik secara sambil lewa dan sekadar mengajar untuk melunaskan tanggungjawab mereka. Bagi mereka, sama ada pelajar faham atau tidak, itu bukanlah urusan mereka. Dan itu merupakan suatu petanda kekurangan dalam sistem pendidikan kita.

 

Apakah solusinya? 

Sebagai pendidik, tidak kira pada tahap rendah atau tinggi, pendidikan formal atau tidak formal, kita haruslah memberikan 110% semangat sewaktu mendidik. Tidak dinafikan sesetengah ilmu mempunyai konsep yang sukar, atau anak didik itu berperangai dan sukar diajar, namun itu tidak seharusnya menjadi peluntur semangat juang didik kita. Menurunkan ilmu itu adalah suatu yang sukar, namun akan memberi pulangan yang lumayan kepada kedua-dua pihak. Maka, teruslah berjuang wahai pendidik!

Online Tuition For All

Online Tuition For All

What is online tuition?

Online tuition is the process of a tutor teaching a student remotely using electronic, internet-ready devices in order to communicate and work collaboratively. Tutors will typically use internet based communication software such as Skype and collaborative workspaces such as Google documents. The communication software allows students and tutors to communicate in an audio-visual capacity whilst the collaborative workspaces allow the tutors to display information, track progress and assess the learning of the student.

What do I need for online tuition?

All a student needs is a computer with a webcam and our online learning platform software. With this, they can access one of our tutors from anywhere in the world with an internet connection.

Online tuition allows students who are too far away to benefit from the services of our tutors at the click of a button. This service is particularly useful for students who want access to some of the best tutors available, all of whom are qualified teachers. These include students around Malaysia and international.

Some of our online tuition are intensive holiday tuitions as part of an ongoing process or as a one-off.

How does online tuition work?

Initial placement from the enquiry stage to connecting you with a tutor is exactly the same as with home tuition.

Instead of a tutor coming to your house, tuition takes place using an interactive online ‘whiteboard’ in conjunction with live video and audio streaming. The online ‘whiteboard’ is a learning platform where files and images can be uploaded and viewed in real time by both tutor and student. Both parties can then write, type, highlight over the file or image at the same time. By running a software with the online whiteboard, the student can speak face-to-face with the tutor making the experience a very interactive one.

 

Hardware

In order to make the most of online tuition it is important that you have the right tools to do so. Here we will cover the hardware that we would suggest you have in your possession and have divided items into essential and supplementary items.

Essential hardware for online tuition:

 Internet connection:

In order to receive online tuition from an online tutor it is essential that you are able to access the world wide web. Almost all of the software and tutoring platforms that we have covered in the software section will operate through the internet. In addition to needing in internet connection it is also important that your access to the internet is of a sufficient quality. For the most basic online tuition software you would need a minimum of one megabit download and upload speeds.

 Device:

In order to communicate with an online tutor through an online platform you will need a device. The device will need to be able to access the internet and be capable of both downloading and uploading content to these online platforms. Although students would be capable of doing this with mobile phones and tablet devices, we recommend that students use laptops or desktops as they provide easier methods of communicating.

 Microphone:

The device that you use for online tuition must have a microphone embedded within it or connected as a third-party device so that the student can speak to the tutor. Most devices have inbuilt microphones these days with the exception of desktop computers. For desktop computers you may need to purchase a microphone in order to have this capability. Devices that act as microphones and video cameras all in one will be the best option for individuals using desktops.

Supplementary hardware for online tuition:

 Headset:

Although most devices have speakers and microphones embedded within them, these are often not the best hardware solutions for online tuition. Embedded microphones are often not close enough to the tutor to provide excellent sound quality and embedded speakers are often poor quality and do not allow confidential tutoring if there are other people nearby. For optimal online tuition we recommend purchasing a headset with an attached microphone for better communication capabilities.

 Mouse:

Online tuition is best when it is highly interactive. In order for the student to be able to be engaged with the lesson it is important that they can engage with whatever software platform the tutor is using in an easy manner. One of the best ways in which to do this is to have an external mouse connected to your laptop to improve levels of interaction.

 Drawing tablet:

Drawing with a computer mouse can be difficult and so tablets can be a great way for students and tutors to communicate more effectively. Most tablets can be configured to act as drawing pads with desktops of laptops which can, in turn, significantly improve the quality of online tuition.

 Video Camera:

With the exception of desktop computers, most devices come with embedded video cameras already. Although video cameras are not essential for online tuition, they do help to build rapport between the student and tutor and to improve communication. We strongly recommend that all students performing online tuition have video capabilities either through external attachments or embedded within the device that they are using to make the online tuition as effective as possible.
