25 Principles of Learning - please look back with the point highlighted in green. Especially something with organizing and segmentizing (tribute to Contiguity Effects. Ideas that need to be associated should be presented contiguously in space and time.2. Perceptual-motor Grounding. Concepts benefit from being grounded in perceptual motor experiences, particularly at early stages of learning.3. Dual Code and Multimedia Effects. Materials presented in verbal, visual, and multimedia form richer representations than a single medium.4. Testing Effect. Testing enhances learning, particularly when the tests are aligned with important content.5. Spacing Effect. Spaced schedules of studying and testing produce better long-term retention than a single study session or test.6. Exam Expectations. Students benefit more from repeated testing when they expect a final exam.7. Generation Effect. Learning is enhanced…

Umur yang berkat bukanlah umur yang panjang semata tetapi diberi keluasan dalam setiap waktu yang ada.

Either my Dahlia az Zahra Tauhid binti Mohammad Bakhtiar is gifted or being given a good environmental for learning development?

From prescholar bulletin - Signs of giftedness in a preschoolerYour 2- to 4-year-old may be gifted if she has some of these characteristics:
Has a specific talent, such as artistic ability or an unusual ease with numbers. For example, children who draw unusually realistic pictures or who can manipulate numbers in their head may be gifted - melukis gambar family dengan realistic
Reaches developmental milestones well ahead of peers - 1 tahun 7 bulan, buat ayat 5 perkataan.Has advanced language development, such as an extensive vocabulary or the ability to speak in sentences much earlier than other children of the same age  - kerana itulah mama selalu bergaduh dengannya, kerana zara bercakap standard acha dan hawa. Ingatkan diorang sebaya tetapi zara baru 3 tahun.Is relentlessly curious and never seems to stop asking questions - atuk dengan nenet sampai tak larat nak melayan. Diantara dialog;atuk "zara makan la jemput-jemput ni, mana ada sayur" zara "tapi ada bawang, kanak-ka…

Today me in my office - hanging out with friends with some resolutions:
1. Stop blog hunting! - especially on emotional blog. I need my energy for my study, self improvement, kiddos and mr hubby.
2. Record good things in my life. Hee.. fully utilize the lovely galaxy note - record and capture the moments of kiddos, food, friends, studies and self improvement.
3. Utilize my time - surah al-asr.
4. Good idea for minimalist:

On my study: 1. Timeline to Disscuss with Dr Nazlena: 20 July 2012.
- KV; lack of theory. - thinking of doing framework, looking visualization from kognitive and perceptual side. But how to relate with ICT? Somehow im doing Doctorate in Computer. - mental model puhliss!
2. Based on Constructive Theory - Jean Piaget. Early education is very important. On their early years, childrens mind are empty. So a good schema (mental model) must be put in. This schema will permanently stay there and any new knowledge will only being filtered by this schema. The …
20-22Jun 2012 Airis' flu continue until today.. It takes plus minus 4 weeks :(

Anyway, for my study.. i m hunting for cognitive, perception and the relationship with visual - then how to relate with KV.
Visual Thinking for Design - Colin Ware Chapter 1.
Elaborate about all those things, but when it comes to top-down and bottom-up perception.. i m a bit confused. Then start to dig from internet. A bunch of references regarding on cognitive and perception came from psychology, especially on education.

23 - 24 Jun 2012
Abah was here. We went to KLCC and makan durian at sungai tekali. The chicken wings was awesome! sedap sangat. I ate 6 of them.. oh my diet!

Start from 3.00 am, i studied on Chapter 4- Color. Colin Ware. visual thinking for design.
Somehow, color is interesting part to learn, besides, i also love to study about how color influenced human life. Things to ponder, Allah make white as exclusive color. Which is must be balance from mix all RGB colors. Iam thinking of focus on color in my research. but it is too early to decide. Lets me study another thing first.
Colin Ware explain about Rod and cone in our retina and how HSL (Hue, Saturation and luminance) play a big role in make color difference.

Shiny idea from Mr Husband Fibonachi or something related to 7 in develop framework in visualization.
18 Jun 2012 from today onward, I will use English to increase my skill and vocabulary (Thank You, Allah)
