    21. 25. <ul><li>TEACHER’S VOICE </li></ul><ul><li>Ambigapathy Pandian , Revathi Ramiah Universiti Sains Malaysia </li></ul>
    22. 26. <ul><li>Teachers and students who have been teaching and learning in Bahasa Melayu are now expected to perform effectively in English, to teach and acquire subject specific knowledge </li></ul>
    23. 27. <ul><li>we have teachers, who themselves have proficiency problems with the new medium of instruction. </li></ul>we have students who must learn mathematics and science content while they are still learning English (McKeon, 1994)
    24. 28. <ul><li>“ My students cannot understand me when I explain concepts . I need to use Bahasa Melayu.” </li></ul>Subjects such as mathematics and science use academic language, which has its own register, syntax, semantic properties and discourse features .
    25. 29. <ul><li>Interviews with the respondents revealed that these teachers are not clear about the linguistic features of their content subject . </li></ul><ul><li>“ I know I have to help them with the language, but I do not know how to do this, we were not taught how in maktab (college)” </li></ul>
    26. 30. <ul><li>85.2% - had problems explaining concepts in English and 81.8% admitted to using Bahasa Melayu (L1) to give explanations </li></ul>“ What am I to do? I have to use BM, if not, how am I to finish the syllabus ”
    27. 31. <ul><li>Therefore, these teachers are unable to help their students to cope with academic language. </li></ul>
    28. 32. <ul><li>MATHEMATICS AND SCIENCE IN ENGLISH: TEACHER VOICE </li></ul><ul><li>Ambigapathy Pandian , Revathi Ramiah Universiti Sains Malaysia </li></ul><ul><li>http://pkgsungaibalang.blogspot.com </li></ul><ul><li>The Smart School Roadmap </li></ul><ul><li>www.msc.com.my/smartschool/downloads/roadmap.pdf </li></ul>
    29. 34. A class or lesson carried out in order to introduce and teach the teachers about e-bahan Teachers who are new and do not have much knowledge about e-bahan, were expected to teach and carry out lesson, using those method .
    30. 35. <ul><li>Lack of shared vision towards ICT implementation. </li></ul><ul><li>Application / used widely only in Smart School </li></ul>
    31. 36. <ul><li>MATHEMATICS AND SCIENCE IN ENGLISH: TEACHER VOICE </li></ul><ul><li>Ambigapathy Pandian , Revathi Ramiah Universiti Sains Malaysia </li></ul>
    32. 38. <ul><li>The multimedia courseware was also said to be unsuitable for LEP students , as they were not able to understand the language used to deliver the content. </li></ul>“ The CDs are good but my students don’t understand so I have to stop and translate for them”.
    33. 39. <ul><li>It was found that 87.5% of the respondents felt that the multimedia courseware supplied by the Ministry to teach science and mathematics is well planned and effective in terms of content. </li></ul><ul><li>However, respondents who were interviewed claimed that these materials were more suitable for proficient students. Most respondents maintained that LEP students had trouble following the content presented because of language difficulties. </li></ul>
