Last sunday, there’s an IT workshop organized by Bureau of Information and Promotion, Usrah Institution, MMU Cyberjaya. We’ve invited the students from Hira Islamic Secondary School. But the students who join the workshop are varies from Form 1 till Form 4. I’m unavailable on sunday because celebrating Anom birthday so I join for sunday, where actually I’m going to continue sabau teaching on the saturday, that is drawing with flash
I am suppose to teach this kids Basic Animation in Flash. Those stuff such as keyframe animation, motion tween animation, shape morphing, fade in fade out, path animation and so much more, but endup cant teach them since Syed Huzaifah take all the good part of it. He teaching photoshop animation instead hahah. But it’s ok. tak kecik hati pun. it’s because flash need more time to learn and the time left only 1 hour for me so i said it’s ok and told syed to continue persuade the student to do more on photoshop.

Read more, it doesn’t ends here.
Foreseeing them interested with computer things and stuff, it reflects me back at my Form 1, where i began to touch the computer, learn about Championship Manager played by senior named Faizal back in Samten. the first time i touch the computer is when i at samten and taking computer class. during that time, the subject they teach was only word and excel, with some introduction to PC peripherals. At the same year abah gave me the first PC. Equiped with 800Mhz processor, Cyrix and whatever i forget,I start to grow my interest in PC, but only in gaming. Precisely, Command & Conquer. Till form 3 i only use PC for playing games until I move to MRSM Taiping where i start touching flash, powerpoint, and ulead photoimpact.
Now this kids so lucky, they got to touch photoshop as early as Form 1. But hey Flash on Form 1, that’s was way too early.. but it’s not impossible thing to do. Sabau touch flash when he’s form 2. I think maybe my son/daughter should be touching flash as early as.. standard 5.. hahahahaha. So this Hira’students, are quite brilliant. At the end of thecourse we had this competitio that was handled by me. the task given is to make their school magazine for this year with their limited resources. The PC at lab was connected to the internet so i told them to use corbis and google image search to find the images that related to school.
Surprisingly, there’s a bunch of them can design very well despite their background as an Islamic School Student. Gempak siut. The first person that win even have the Idea to put Cave-like border for the magazine to resemble their school – Hira’. FYI Hira’ is originated from Rasulullah PBUH story when migrating to Medina, Rasulullah PBUH rest at Hira’ Cave. So the idea of using the cavelike border is extremely brilliant. If put into comparison, I’m nothing at their age. I’m happy. For them going to be a Da’ei but equiped with strength in technologies, they’ll go far, far away in the future and might exceed me.
Well here’s the poster. The essence of design might be off since they never learn about typeface, eye-rest, compostion and such but looking them taking babysteps like this, they surely going far.
Thanks to them. I’ve become more passionate to teach more of what i know. Thanks to Bureau of Information and Promotion for inviting me as a tutor that day but end up didnt teach any hahaha. Congratulations on doing well for IU Apperentice. Cant see you in the boardroom hehe.
There’s a cute kitty said this to me…
Persist in jihad in the cause of Allah, with your money, your souls, and your tongue … and yes, with your psp too !
P/S : Jihad is not about bombing Innocent/ bombing anyone you know. Jihad in Muslim dictionary means doing all daily things in life for Almighty God, Allah. ( this P/S text is just in case there’s an extremist stalking my blog ). Before you translate jihad itself it’s better you refer to Wikipedia or asking any muslim you know.
Thanks kitty for that phrase Might be a tutor in Hira Islamic School.. hehehehehe.
Song for the time. Scatman – John Scatman
