  63. 63. CPs' ideas on going paper-less (online survey Jan. 2015) Question: Are you happy with the balance between paper and digital work in your training sessions? (Please explain.) - Yes. I'm happy. I love the idea of digital work. A world without paper. Chalkup is a very good alternative that he has introduced to us. - Absolutely. He tries to reduce using paper and we refer to the exercises online. Its enjoyable and interesting because its full of colours and animation. - Actually, I'm more comfortable doing the training sessions using the digital tool compared to paper. But, in the interim, I still need to use paper to copy the notes during the lesson.The conclusion is, I'm happy with the balance between both paper and digital work in my training sessions. - Yes. I am very happy with the balanced usage of paper and digital work in the training session. In fact, he managed to show that without paper (worksheets) learning could still take place more effectively and more interestingly. - Digital work truly gave us an opportunity to search, respond and write fast but sometime we perhaps forget the website and cannot reach the source. Its a good idea to have paper sometime.
  64. 64. FINAL NOTES • Much of what was presented might seem pretty common in many parts of the world but the fact that we managed to reach this level of online participation in an area where internet connectivity is a serious issue and some participants didn’t have a clear idea what an online learning platform is, makes this a real achievement in a period of 5 months. • Well done Sabak Bernam!
