Ilmu perlu dilihat sebagai satu kaedah untuk mencari kebenaran - memenuhi keperluan masakini dan akan datang. Ia bertitik tolak dari sumber tauhid - kepercayaan, keimanan dan ketaqwaan. Sumber ilmu adalah berbagai - dari sumber wahyu kepada fungsi pancaindera. Kebenaran ilmu menjadi kayu pengukur kepada martabat sumber-sumber ilmu.

Sumber Indera : Anggota badan - penglihatan, bau, rasa dan seumpamanya.
Sumber Akal : Penggunaan akal dan pertimbangan fikiran.
(tumpuan kepada hal-hal yang bersifat lahiriah, fizikal dan boleh wujud perbezaan antara manusia)

Sumber Ilham : Kreativiti, inovatif dan daya fikir yang tinggi.
(Hal-hal yang bersifat emosi bagi membezakan yang baik dan yang buruk dan pemikiran inovatif)

Sumber Intuisi : Gerak hati yang suci, naluri yang bersih dan semulajadi.
(Hal-hal yang bersifat logik, ke arah penyelesaian dan menentukan kebenaran)

Sumber Wahyu : Ilmu Al-Yaqin dan hakiki - kurniaan Ilahi.
(Mencari keredaan, menegak kebenaran dan boleh berada di dalam atau di luar keupayaan akal manusia pada satu-satu masa)

Ilmu dari sumber wahyu berada di martabat yang paling tinggi, kemudian intuisi, ilham, akal dan akhir sekali indera. Namun kita perlu menghargai setiap sumber ilmu sesuai dengan sifat dan fungsinya.

Mencari ilmu....Jangan terlalu bergantung kepada sumber Internet, hasil kajian orang lain dan bahan rujukan teks semata-mata. Juga gunakan kekuatan pada diri sendiri yang ada.

026 - PENSYARAH.....OH.......PENSYARAH!!! Kesilapan Para Pensyarah dan Cikgu-cikgu semasa dalam kelas


Kesilapan@10. When you ask a question in class, immediately call for volunteers - Few students even bother to think about the question, since they know that eventually someone else will provide the answer.

Kesilapan@9. Call on students without giving them time to think - Please… ask the question and give the students a short time to come up with an answer.

Kesilapan@8. Turn classes into PowerPoint shows.

Kesilapan@7. Fail to provide variety in instruction - Almost nonstop lecturing - Do not motivate students by sharing their experience and wisdom.

Kesilapan@6. Have students work in groups with no individual accountability.

Kesilapan@5. Fail to establish relevance of course content to their interests and career goals.

Kesilapan@4. Give tests that are too long.

Kesilapan@3: Get stuck in a rut - feel satisfied with the lecture notes & don't change a thing for the rest of their careers.

Kesilapan@2. Teach without clear learning objectives.

Kesilapan@1. Disrespect students - If you give students a sense that you don't respect them, probably its a bad experience for everyone no matter what else you do.

025 - Presentation Mistake & A Better Scenario for Studiowork Presentation

Bandar Acheh: Before & After Tsunami

Presentation Mistake #1 - You Don't Know Your Topic!
You memorized the content. Someone has a question. Panic sets in. You never prepared for questions and all you know about this topic is what is written on the slides.

A better scenario: Know your material so well, Be prepared for questions and know the answers.

Presentation Mistake #2 - The Slides Are Not Your Presentation
Each of your slides in filled with the text of your speech. Why do they need you in front?

A better scenario : Always remember that you are the presentation. The slide show should only be used as an accompaniment to your talk. Simplify the content. Speak to the audience, not to the screen.

Presentation Mistake #3 - Too Much Information
You know so much about the topic, that you jump from here to there and back again talking about everything, and no one can follow the thread of the presentation.

A better scenario : Use the K.I.S.S. principle (Keep It Silly Simple) when designing a presentation. Stick to three, or at the most, four points about your topic and give further details about them.

Presentation Mistake #4 - Poorly Chosen Design or Theme
You heard blue was a good color for a design template or design theme, with a beach scene. Water is blue, right? Unfortunately, your presentation is about some effective new tools.

A better scenario
Choose a design that is appropriate for the audience. A clean, straightforward layout is best for project presentations.

Presentation Mistake #5 - Electrifying Color Choices
Audiences don't like unusual color combinations. Some are unsettling and red and green combos can't be differentiated by those with color blindness.

A better scenario
Good contrast with the background is essential to make your text easy to read. Dark text on a light background is best. Off white or light beige is easier on the eyes than the typical white. Dark backgrounds are very effective, if the text is light for easy reading. Patterned or textured backgrounds make text hard to read.

Presentation Mistake #6 - Poor Font Choices
Small, script type fonts might look great when you are sitting 18 inches away from the monitor. You didn't consider the audience sitting 50 feet away from the screen who can't read them.

A better scenario : Stick to easy to read fonts such as Arial or Times New Roman. Use no more than two different fonts – one for headings, another for content and no less than a 30 pt font so that people at the back of the room can read them easily.

Presentation Mistake #7 - Extraneous Photos and Graphs
You figured no one will notice that you didn't do much research on your topic if you add lots of photos and complicated looking graphs.

A better scenario : Use photos, charts and diagrams only to emphasize key points of your presentation. Illustrate, don't decorate.

Presentation Mistake #8 - Too Many Slides
Your vacation cruise was so fantastic that you took 200 photos, and put them all in a digital photo album to impress your friends. After the first 50 slides, snores were heard in the room.

A better scenario : Ensure your audience stays focused by keeping the number of slides to a minimum. 20 to 30 is plenty. Be kind though. Think how much you enjoy everyone else’s vacation pictures!

Presentation Mistake #9 - Different Animations on Every Slide
You found all the really cool animations and sounds and used 85% of them in your presentation, to impress everyone with your flair. The audience doesn’t know where to look, and have totally lost the message of your presentation.

A better scenario : Animations and sounds, used well, can heighten interest, but don't distract the audience with too much of a good thing. Don't let your audience suffer from animation overload.

Presentation Mistake #10 - Hardware Malfunctions
The audience is settled. You are all set to start your presentation and - guess what? The computer doesn't work. You didn’t bother to check it out earlier.

A better scenario : Check all the equipment and rehearse your presentation,

………Worthless people live only to eat and drink - People of worth eat and drink only to live.


Isu-isu membabitkan remaja hangat diperkatakan, melibatkan berbagai strata, tempat dan di mana-mana. ..Generasi milenium, generasi X,Y……Secara tidak langsung, isu ini turut menggambarkan bahawa bahawa remaja kini ramai yang semakin agresif, berani dan mudah dipengaruhi. Banyak melibatkan perasaan, emosi yang berbagai. Juga melibatkan naluri, nafsu, hiburan, keberanian, dan juga setengahnya amat pasif?………Berada di ‘comfort zone’ yang amat tinggi.

Naluri Remaja - Perasaan Ingin Tahu dan Ingin Mencuba. Pada peringkat usia ini, mereka mempunyai perasaan ingin tahu yang tinggi. Justeru apa-apa sahaja perkara baru yang terjadi di sekeliling mereka, akan mengundang perasaan ingin tahu di kalangan remaja. Perasaan begitu sebenarnya adalah baik untuk remaja, namun yang menimbulkan masalah apabila mereka tiada ‘guide line’ dari orang-orang yang sepatutnya, umpamanya para ibu bapa, keluarga, orang terdekat dan sebagainya. Jadi perasaan ingin tahu remaja akan mendorong mereka melakukan apa ingin dilakukan tanpa memikirkan baik atau buruknya perkara perkara tersebut.

Pengaruh Rakan Sebaya - Kawan-kawan menjadi orang yang rapat dengan mereka. Kawan yang baik, boleh membimbing mereka kepada kebaikan, namun jika tersilap memilih kawan, akan mempengaruhi mereka kepada perkara-perkara yang buruk. Selain itu sikap remaja turut menyumbang kepada gejala sosial, kadangkala mereka ini terlalu mudah mempercayai orang lain. Umpamanya, jika mereka merasakan rakan-rakan mereka lebih rapat dan lebih memahami, dengan mudah mereka akan mengikut apa yang dilakukan oleh rakan-rakan.

Mencari Keseronokkan - Sikap remaja juga memikirkan keseronokan. Jadi apa sahaja benda-benda yang memberikan keseronokan kepada mereka akan dilakukan sama ada kerana terikut-ikut dengan sikap kawan-kawan atau pilihan sendiri. Ketika ini apa yang terlintas di pemikiran mereka adalah keseronokan tanpa memikirkan akibat perbuatan mereka itu kelak.

Pengaruh Media Massa dan Internet - Juga menjadi penyumbang kepada berlakunya gejala sosial di kalangan para remaja hari ini. Namun tidak semuanya apa yang dipaparkan di media massa itu memberikan kesan yang buruk. Namun, ada segelintir rancangan-rancangan yang bersifat hiburan semata-mata mempengaruhi para remaja dengan perkara yang tidak baik. Umpamanya corak pergaulan remaja yang jauh dari nilai-nilai ketimuran, cara berpakaian yang kurang sopan dan gaya hidup yang tidak sesuai.

Sikap Keluarga - Dalam hal ini keluarga juga ada kalanya menjadi pendorong bertambahnya gejala sosial di kalangan remaja. Keluarga yang mengamalkan sikap terlalu mengongkong atau terlalu memberikan kebebasan kepada para remaja. Terlalu mengongkong ialah keluarga yang mengamalkan sikap terlalu tertutup - menyebabkan jiwa remaja memberontak dan jika berpeluang keluar dari keadaan itu mereka akan melakukan apa sahaja yang terlintas di fikiran tanpa berfikir panjang. Memberikan Kebebasan biasanya bersikap terbuka yang keterlaluan. Keadaan ini tidak baik kerana para remaja perlukan sesuatu yang boleh dijadikan panduan untuk menjalani kehidupan mereka. Mereka tidak boleh membiarkan anak-anak bersendirian menentukan jalan hidup mereka - remaja perlu dibimbing.

Nasihat Untuk Remaja - Pilih kawan-kawan yang boleh memimpin ke jalan kebaikan - Jangan mudah terpengaruh - Kenali orang-orang di sekeliling - Dapatkan seseorang yang boleh menjadi ‘role model’ - Murnikan hati dan tingkat ilmu dan cara berfikir.
