Hi guys, this week I studied how to keep my self motivated through module 7 of ESEPSY 1159. ANd the most useful thing that I found in this module is the value of sleep and how to fall in sleep in a short time. I used to be a person who usually stay up late to play video games. It is unhealthy and hurts my body. After watching the video ” The benefit of a good night” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gedoSfZvBgE&feature=youtu.be, I realized that I need to relate my schedule of sleep to keep the efficiency of study and healthy. Besides sleeping, one more thing in this module that I have already in use is the way to keep myself from being distracted. In a world full of various distractions, it is really hard for us to focus on one thing. Thus we have to eliminate those possible distractions before we are plan to focus on something. And the way I’m using is to leave all my electronics except my laptop in another room, thus I can focus on whatever I want to do. And there is also one tip that I want to try it out in the future, it is taking breaks from time to time. And I think that definitely can help me be more efficient in my work. That is all I want to share for this week.
Hey guys, this is my post reflection for module 6 of ESEPSY 1159: searching and researching. And the first thing I would like to mention is the most useful tool that I learned in this module which is how to determine the reliability of the article. When we are writing a paper or an article, We will always tend to reference resources from another article that can support our point. But the problem is how can we make sure that the information or the argument in the reference article is correct? In other words, how can we confirm the reliability of the article? Well, the first thing that we should do is to check that if any credentials of the author are listed on that article since the higher education the author received the more reliable his/her article can be. After that, one thing we should also be careful about is that if the article is from a famous publisher or organization. If it is, then the article is more likely to be reliable. Besides reliability, the thing I have already put in used is some searching engines like Wikipedia, Google Scholar, etc. Those searching engines can help us easily find reliable and useful resources we need. Thus those can improve the efficiency of writing. And this is all I want to share from this module.
Hey guys, this week I have learned the skills for listening and viewing. As we all know, viewing and listening is a great part of our daily class. And we need to do well on it to get a successful academic life. So the first thing, listening is a big part of it. We mainly listening to what our teacher says during most of our class time. And most of the time, teachers deliver the important information that we need by speaking. So how can we do well on listening? Well, the first thing we need to do is to be an active listener. To be an active listener means that we are not just sitting back there and listen to what speakers say. We need to be actively thinking about what does speakers want to say next and the logical connection between his/her words. By doing this, we can achieve better results in our classes. Then, viewing is also a big part of our academic life. The strategy that I have learned from this module is to make some graphical records that can enable us to understand our class material better. For example, I made the graph about programming language on easel.ly, and I find out I can better remember the invention time of those programming languages and what is their key features.
In this week, I study through the module named “Online Study Tools”. This module mainly introduces some useful online tools that I can use to improve my grade and study. In the module, I learned that there are a lot of useful websites and applications that we can utilize to improve the efficiency and quality of our study time. And one of my favorite tools is a website named Quizlet, it is an amazing website with a lot of great quiz cards. Every time I’m going to have an exam, I will check out Quizlet to see if there are any review Quiz cards that others make for the exam. And for most of my courses, I can find a lot of relative quiz cards that I can study at. Besides Quizlet, another tool I would like to recommend is Youtube. Even I have know Youtube for a long time. I usually watch funny or gaming videos on it. However, after taking this module, I find out that there are lots of well-made delicate academic videos on there. Those videos are so good that I wish I can find out those valuable resources sooner. And that is all I want to share for this module.
