  1. 1. 1. Insteadof gainingknowledge fromteachersandindividual reading,problem-based learningallowsme togainknowledge frommyothergroupmates.Problem-based learningemphasizedaloton self-directedlearning,wherebywe have toinvestigate and readup on our ownin orderto solve the problemassignedtous.Teacherdoesnot spoon-feeduswithideasandwayswe can usedtosolve ourproblems.Thismake me more independentin mylearning,wherebyI have readupon the theoriesneededto solve the problem. Problem-basedlearningallowsme tobe more organisedinmyplanningwhen attemptingtosolve problem.Everythingdone canbe uploadedontothe same platform. Thisallowsme to keeptrackof our project,andplanour time more effectively. Problem-basedlearningalsoallowscollaborative learningtotake place.All group memberswill use the same platformtoshare ideas.Throughsharingof ideas,Ican gain more knowledge.However,forgrouplearningtobe effective,everyonemustbe responsible incompletingthe taskassignedtothem.If one memberisnotresponsible and doesnotput inmuch effort,the whole groupwill suffer.Due tothis,Iwas more careful wheneverIwasassignedatheoryto readon. I will make sure Ireadmy theory carefullyandclarifyeverydoubtIhave.Thisisto ensure thatI donot teach mygroup membersthe wrongthing. 2.

Throughproblem-basedlearning,Ilearntorelate withmygroupmembers.When everyone comestogethertosolve aproblem, itislessstressfulforme.Ican alsolearn frommy otherpeersas all of us have differingpointof viewsandeveryone hasour individualideastocontribute.Asabeginningteacher,itisimportantforme to collaborate withmyothercolleagueswheneverIencounteredproblematicstudents.I believemanycolleagueswill be able tohelpme throughsharingof theirexperiencesand supportcan be gainedthroughthem.

More trainingcan be giventous inusingpbwiki.Thiswill allow ustobe able to make full use of the pbwiki.We realisewe spentalotof time findingouthow to use pbwiki and howto uploadstuff ontothe page.If more trainingisprovided,we canbe more confidentwhenusingthisplatform. 4.

However,sometimesthe videocanbe laggingandtakesa longtime to load. 6.
