- 9:00 Personalized Reading: Developing User-describing Profile for Slow Learner Children
- Personalization is a good supplement for learning process. It has been claimed that personalization has a huge potential of providing solution to facilitate the learning path based on children ability and preferences. Diverse research on personalized learning for children have been conducted which, are commonly concerns on the development and implementation of personalized learning products and services. However these researches have little emphasized in exploring slow learner personalized learning process particularly on their reading ability. With that, this paper is aim to highlight two key important components of personalization for slow learner children which are construction of user profile and scenario. These two components cover user information and personalized reading process required for the slow learner children. The scope of this study is on personalization of reading for slow learner children. There were 13 slow learner children with reading difficulties from primary school participated in this study. The key findings from this study are the construction of user profile and scenario that represent the personalization for reading. These user profile and scenario construction then provide guidelines for the development of personalized interface design for slow learner reading application.
- 9:15 The Development of Student Worksheet Using Guided Inquiry Learning Model to Train Science Process Skills

Therefore, this study aims to describe the feasibility of student worksheet using guided inquiry learning model, viewed from of the validity, practicality, effectiveness, and achievement of students' SPS. This research employed a research and development using ADDIE design. The tryout subjects of this research were 27 students of grade VIIIA SMP Negeri 3 Belawang. The instruments of this research were student worksheet validation sheet, questionnaire, learning result test, and SPS observation sheet. The result of the analysis shows that the student worksheet has a valid category, a very practical category, moderate effectiveness category, and a very good students' SPS. It is concluded that the developed student worksheet using guided inquiry learning model to train SPS is feasible for learning process in school junior high school on the topics of light.
- 9:30 Informal Learning Spaces for Undergraduate Business School: A Bangkok Private University Case Study
- Informal learning spaces (ILS) have been used by students for solo and group learning activities, within and outside library spaces. Many academic disciplines provide learning spaces besides classrooms, such as labs and studios, where students attending related disciplines can use these learning spaces as formal and informal learning spaces (ILS). However, for business school, such types of learning spaces are normally not available. Moreover, most courses of business studies assign team projects that require group discussion types of meetings, which are difficult to conduct in a library environment. This research used a Bangkok private university as a case study to explore the behaviours and perspectives of students who attended business programs, concerning how students used ILS, on and off campus facilities, for learning activities. Research approach applied quantitative analysis through questionnaire surveys and small group interviews, during March, 2018. The results showed that students used Home/Dorm more towards solo studies than group activities. Students applied virtual spaces to extend the functions of Home/Dorm for group activities. The usage of Café and coworking spaces were more towards group activities. These results showed that besides available of virtual spaces, there were still needs for face-to-face meetings.
- 9:45 Readiness in Implementing Teacher's Training Programme Based on Industrial Revolution 4.0 an Evidence from Malaysian Public Universities
- Recently, Industrial Revolution 4.0 has been receiving massive intention all around the world. The effect of this revolution has bring changes in industrial field as well as higher education. Various proposition has been made towards transforming educational setting parallel with the elements of industrial revolution 4.0. However, there has been different reactions from educators regarding this transformation. Hence, this study aims to identify the readiness of educators to implement the elements of industrial revolution 4.0 in Teacher Training Programs in Malaysia. The respondents involved in this study consists of 61 lecturers from 14 public universities in Malaysia. Logit value analysis using Rasch Measurement Analysis founds that the level of respondents' readiness towards the implementation is at moderate level (logit=0.156). Specifically, respondents are more ready to implement the constructs related to the teaching method compare to the constructs related to the implementation method. The findings of this study illustrates that lecturers' readiness is still at moderate level. Thus, there should be an increase in the effort to apply the industrial revolution 4.0 in higher education to increase the quality of our future teachers.

- S1c.1 9:00 Online Interaction in Social Learning Environment Towards Critical Thinking Skill: A Framework
- Interaction is one of the crucial processes in online learning, which is a process derived from a common encouragement among people action that they able to utilize, store, share and construct knowledge. It is believed that the interaction among students is able to train the students to involve in active learning and enhance critical thinking skill. Recently, critical thinking is recognized as one of the 21st-century skills that students must have to do well in the community. The engagement of the students in a learning environment that supports higher-order thinking activity is the most effective approach to guide the students in developing critical thinking skills. Nevertheless, without the assistance of technology, it may be nearly impossible to ensure that all students have access to learning environments that support and develop these skills. The way students study, interact and think has been shifted due to the increasing use of technologies in learning institutions, particularly during online learning. The online platform is better when there are students interact with each other in form of social learning. Nonetheless, limited research is available on how online interaction in the social learning environment can promote students' critical thinking skill. This study utilized a theory-building method to design the framework. The purpose of the framework of this study is to assist other practitioners and researchers in applying the elements of online interaction in a social learning environment to foster students' critical thinking skill.
- S1c.2 9:15 UAI Case: An uCASE-CL Model Implementation
- The new models of teaching and learning have their focus on technology, especially on issues related to ubiquity. The impact of ICT in education generates new learning opportunities: the mobile or ubiquitous, which open new doors to technological environments that allow students to learn at any time and place, providing, in addition, tools that give the possibility to perform collaborative work and learning. The integration of a ubiquitous virtual teaching and learning environment with collaborative work forms the uCSCL (Ubiquitous Computer Supported Collaborative Learning) model. What has been mentioned before allowed us to understand the importance of making a specification of this model that provides the possibility of using a tool for professional use in the Software Engineering (SE) during the teaching and learning processes, including the specific activities of evaluation and monitoring of works. These tools, called CASE (Computer-Aided Software Engineering), must be an active part of the uCSCL model. This integration, forms the model proposed in our work, called uCASE-CL, which is formed by four dimensions: the psychology of social interactions, the pedagogy of teaching, computing and communications. These dimensions are integrated with the aim of assisting the proposed process for SE in order of teaching and learning with the active participation of a tutor or teacher and with features that allow promoting discussion and collaborative learning to build knowledge. A prototype of the implementation of the uCASE-CL model was developed, which we have called UAI Case. This solution is a proposal to cover the need to have tools that can be used in the teaching of the SI, and that allow the student to acquire and strengthen the academic content developed during different courses of the Computer Systems Engineering career, in the Interamerican Open University.
- S1c.3 9:30 Students' Perception Towards the Use of Frog VLE Based on Rogers' Diffusion of Innovation Theory
- In the Malaysia Education Blueprint or PPPM 2013-2025, Frog VLE Application is a new application introduced by the Ministry of Education Malaysia (KPM) as a new approach of education in all schools. Therefore, a study is conducted to identify whether there is a significant correlation between the advantages, compatibility, complexity and observation of Roger's Diffusion of Innovation theory with the perceived of usefulness of Frog VLE and the perceived of ease of use of Frog VLE based on TAM Model in teaching and learning is a necessity. Respondents were comprised of 30 Form 5 Science students and 30 Form 5 Arts students from a secondary school in Tangkak District. The research instrument used was a questionnaire consisting of 24 questions related to the relationship between DOI Roger theory and TAM model on the application of Frog VLE. The data were analysed quantitatively using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS Version 20.0) which involved the use of descriptive, and Pearson's correlation methods. The findings showed that the significant correlation between DOI Roger theory and TAM model on the application of Frog VLE application was at moderate level.
- S1c.4 9:45 Integrating Animation in Chinese Character Writing Based on Cognitive Theory of Multimedia Learning to Promote Students' Writing Skills
- The complexity of Chinese character caused students facing learning difficulty in mastering the Chinese character writing skills. From recent researches, students fail to mastery in writing proper Chinese character causing the inefficiencies in learning Chinese character writing. This study aimed to investigate the effect and students' perception on implementation of animation in teaching and learning of Chinese character writing based on Cognitive Theory of Multimedia Learning (AniCC Online Learning) via Frog VLE platform. Meanwhile, the relationship of implementation of AniCC Online Learning and pupil's writing performance were also studied to have further insights into the Chinese character teaching and learning situation. Therefore, Pre-experimental one group pre-test and post-test design was adopted in this study. Thirty three Year 1 students were selected as the respondents in this research which involved 4 types of instruments. There was a significant different (p = 0.013) between the scores of pre-test and post-test for students' writing performance after performing paired samples t-test. The study also showed an increase in the means scores of students' writing skills from 2.02 to 2.09 and an increase in the percentage of students' writing skills ranking at rank 4 or above although no significant different (p = 0.180) was observed between the pre writing assessment and post writing assessment after Wilcoxon Test was performed. The students overall showed high acceptance towards integration of AniCC Online Learning with overall mean score 0.90 (maximum = 1). However, no significant relationship (p = 0.994) could be observed between the writing performance among the students and the perception towards integration of AniCC Online Learning in the Year 1 Chinese Language classroom. In sum, the design of AniCC Online Learning via Frog VLE platform is able to improve writing performance as well as to help students in their writing skills.

- 9:00 Teaching Fundamental Programming Using Augmented Reality
- To learn a programming language, the students have to understand the logical flow of the commands as well as the syntax. The logical flow might be more difficult to understand when compared with a syntax which can detect easily. The primary flow of commands or the control structures includes the sequence, condition or selection, and iteration. The students construct the program flowchart by using these control structure. They also have to understand the result of each command execution, step by step. In this research, we propose the technique for developing the learning tool (AR flowchart) to simulate the result of the commands in program flowchart by using augmented reality (AR), so the learners can visualize the result. With this tool, the students can construct program flowchart as a series of commands by using AR markers. The result of the execution of these commands can be displayed so the students can see whether the logic of the program is correct or not. The design of this tool aims at increasing the student engagement and helping them to understand program logic better. The evaluation of the concept results by the group of the university students supports our propose.
- 9:15 The Use of E-Resources and Innovative Technology in Transforming Traditional Teaching in Chemistry and Its Impact on Learning Chemistry
- Chemistry is often perceived as being a dry and boring science subject, probably because of traditional teaching method, static textbook, lack of interactivity and difficulty in visualization of the abstract chemical concepts. E-learning resources (e-resources) and the utilization of technology have become one of the major trends in education, replacing the conventional textbook and traditional talk and chalk teaching method. A study was undertaken to assess students' perceptions of the impact of the e-resources and technology on various aspects of their learning. Data were collected through a questionnaire involving 28 undergraduates, who were taking first-year Chemistry course in Taylor's University, Malaysia. A Moodle e-Learning platform was made available to the students, where the students can assess e-resources anytime and anywhere. Innovative technologies such as mobile clicker, simulation and augmented reality (AR) were integrated into classroom instruction. Most of the students found the e-resources provided useful and well prepared them for the assessments in the course. Their understanding and ability to answer questions had improved. They were motivated to study the subject because it was more interactive and engaging. Overall findings showed that these e-resources and innovative technologies gave positive impact on students learning in chemistry.
- 9:30 Video Tutorial Screencast and Sketchup Make (VTS-SUM) for Low Achievers in Learning 3D Geometry
- Students' weaknesses in learning 3-Dimensional (3D) geometry are mostly associated with their low level of geometric thinking. Although a 3D software has been proposed as a manipulative learning tool, they had difficulties using it. Therefore, a suitable learning strategy should be designed to overcome the problems. The purpose of the study was to assess a learning strategy, known as Video Tutorial Screencast SketchUp Make (VTS-SUM), which integrates screencast techniques with a 3D software. VTS-SUM is a know-how video that assists students to visualize steps in drawing the orthogonal projections for 3D objects. A total of 180 students from a secondary school were involved in the study, conducted using a quantitative approach, where, a van Hiele Geometric Thinking (vHGT) test was employed to find out the level of students' geometric thinking. The findings obtained showed that, the majority of the students were at the lowest level (Level L1). As for usability test, a total of 30 students were selected from among those below this level. They were given some time to watch the video and perform hands-on activities using the software. A seven-point Likert scale questionnaire, comprising four constructs, namely, usefulness, ease of use, ease of learning and satisfaction, was used to measure the students' perceptions towards the usability test. The results obtained indicated that, the students had positive perceptions towards the usage of VTS-SUM in their learning, thus accentuating its good potentials to enhance learning in Mathematics.
- 9:45 Effective CBT Learning Environment Towards Career Competencies Amongst Vocational Students
- The gaps between vocational students' skill competencies and the skills demanded by the industries bring major impacts towards the unemployment rate of vocational graduates. However, the mismatch of the competencies between the students and the industrial needs could not be solved through conventional learning methods. Ironically, the career competencies of these students seem to be best developed through the competency-based training (CBT) learning environment. Content analysis was carried out to deliberate the factors that lead to an effective CBT learning environment for students in the technical field. Among the factors are the source of learning, evaluation, clear objectives, the burden of tasks, good teaching and learning community. Then, the career competencies of vocational students which comprise of personal, technical, networking, self-profile, career exploration, and career control are reviewed, in relations to the factors of the effective CBT learning environment. Finally, suggestion for future research are discussed.

- 9:00 Students' Social Presence in Learning-Based Interaction via Web 2.0 Tool
- Research in education confirmed that students engage in learning when they feel connected with others and when they play an active role in their learning process. Therefore; social presence (SP) considered as an important component of effective learning either in face-face or in online learning environment. Therefore, this study was intended to investigate students' perception about their SP when using Web 2.0 tool for course-related discussion and the difference in their perception based on gender and number of the semesters of the study. The participants of this study were 71 postgraduate students in one of Malaysian public universities. The quantitative methods of data collection and data analysis were used in this study. Therefore, the researcher employed survey method using Online Social Presence Questionnaire (OSPQ) to collect the required data. The data were analyzed using SPSS software to find mean, standard deviation of students' perception of their social presence while using Web 2.0 tool for course-related interaction. . Independent sample t-test was used to find the difference in students perception based on their gender. Moreover, One-Way ANOVA was used to find the difference in students' SP perception based on their semester of the study. The findings of this study showed that students expressed high perception about their social presence on Web 2.0 tool. However, male students perceived higher social presence on Web 2.0 tool than their counterpart female students. In contrast, number of the semester of the study did not trigger any difference on students' perception about SP.
- 9:15 Research on Social Media for Teaching and Learning Within Higher Education Institution: A Bibliometric Analysis of the Literature (2008-2018)
- Research on the topic of social media for teaching and learning in the higher education have received much attention from academia and practitioners. Social media technology was acknowledged not only as an important communication tool between faculty members and students but also shows great potential as the next social learning platform that better serves the teaching, learning and administration of a higher education institute. Its informal setting allows more flexibility for both students and faculty members to teach and learn anywhere and everywhere. Despite its important, little is known about how this research topic is evolving within the literature. Hence, using a bibliometric analysis technique this study examines the trends, topics, and challenges addressed by previous research for the past ten years (2008-2018). The paper ends by discussing future research directions related to this topic.
- 9:30 Vocabulary Learning Through Mobile Apps: A Phenomenological Inquiry of Student Acceptance and Desired Apps Features
- Vocabulary plays a great role in language learning as learners would face difficulties in language learning if they have insufficient vocabulary knowledge. The advent of new technologies has encouraged the development of mobile assisted language learning (MALL) and the increase in mobile apps for vocabulary learning. Nonetheless, it would seem that there is a dearth in research on the use of mobile apps for vocabulary learning especially in our local contexts. Capitalising on the strength of phenomenological inquiry and a model for technology acceptance, this study investigated several existing mobile apps for language learning. In particular, it looked into students' acceptance and the features of mobile apps conducive for vocabulary learning. This study employed in-depth interviews and surveys as instruments. Using purposive sampling technique, thirty-three students were selected as participants to experience using mobile apps to learn vocabulary on self-directed basis for a specified duration. At the end of the trial stage, all participants responded to the surveys, and three were interviewed. The accounts given by participants indicated positive acceptance and several desired features. Interestingly, this study also revealed several challenges in learning vocabulary through mobile apps which should be the concern of both apps developers and language teachers.
- 9:45 Fostering Authentic Learning Motivations Through Gamification: A Self-Determination Theory (SDT) Approach
- Gamification is defined as the use of game design elements in non-game contexts. Gamification uses game elements like achievements, progression, levels and rewards to encourage user participation and enhance user experience in non-game environments. It has been enthusiastically employed in various fields like web-based businesses, health and wellness, education and social networks. Gamification has been most widely researched in the field of education and the interest remains strong. While many of the pioneer studies revealed positive effects of gamification for learning, more inconclusive and even negative effects have been reported in subsequent research. It is also uncertain whether the positive outcomes are sustainable and not limited to just novelty effects. Studies in this field continue to mature and the thrust is to move beyond the preliminary and often vague question of "Does gamification work?" to more specific inquiries like "Why does gamification work?", "What is gamification's effect?" or "How to make gamification work?". Earlier studies tested the efficacy of gamification in various academic disciplines, using different combinations of game elements and for different learning activities. The synthesizability of the knowledge gained is difficult as many of the gamification approaches were ad hoc and not grounded in established psychological, behavioral or learning theories. This paper presents a gamification framework that is based on the well-established motivational theory, the Self-Determination Theory (SDT). The SDT addresses motivation through the dichotomy of intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. In order to foster authentic learning motivations, gamification should be designed to affect intrinsic motivation for the learning activity itself. The proposed gamification approach in this article distinguishes itself from other gamification systems that tend to engage learners with ongoing cycles of game elements without nurturing a sustainable interest for the learning activity at hand. This paper outlines how this can be achieved by strategically employing game dynamics and elements to meet the psychological needs that support intrinsic motivation. The chosen game dynamics and elements can be deployed using features that are commonly available in online learning management systems. A framework that is based on established motivational theory will contribute to a knowledge structure for gamification that can be built upon, with principles that may be applied to a broader context of learning.

- 4:00 Critical Thinking from STEM Education and Al-Quran Perspectives
- There is growing interest among educators and professionals in developing educational platforms in order to prepare students critical thinking skill in solving current problems. The integration between STEM Education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) which focusing on divergence skill and The Al-Quran which emphasizes the appreciation of the servant to the greatness of Allah the Almighty, has the ability to position our country for global competitiveness as well as not to marginalize the glory of Allah through the appreciation of Al-Quran. The introduction of STEM education which is increasingly gaining attention in Malaysian education field should not only cultivate problem solving skills but also critical thinking skills in solving the problem in order to maintain student's interest. Critical thinking in solving the problem are the skills that need to develop in order for student to be able to face the world outside their classroom. Therefore, this paper tries to synthesize critical thinking in western perspective through STEM education,critical thinking in Al-Quran perspectives and rationalize the link between critical thinking from Al-Quran and western perspectives in preparing the student with the most significant 21st century skills.
- 4:15 Impact of Integrated STEM Smart Communities Program on Students Scientific Creativity
- Scientific creativity is such a complex skill and is often ignored by teachers during teaching activities. The purpose of this study was to identify students' changes of scientific creativity in an integrated STEM of Smart Communities programme. The programme exposed students with integrated STEM education through project-based learning involving the application of engineering design process. The elements of scientific creativity are divided into three aspects which are scientific processes, inquiry skills, and creative thinking. The study was conducted experimentally on two groups of students, ie the control group that did not receive the STEM of Smart Communities modules and the treatment group ie students who had received the modules. This study was conducted in six schools, with three schools with an intervention and three schools without any intervention. Data were collected through a questionnaire given to 330 students. The findings showed a significant difference and have a positive impact on the element of scientific processes, inquiry skills and creative thinking among students with interventions rather than students without intervention.
- 4:30 Engaging Students in Using 3D Printing Technology to Enhance Cognitive Structure and Thought Processes Relevant to Engineering Design
- We investigated the thought processes and cognitive structures of senior high-school students and first-year engineering college students with respect to 3D printing-based robotic insect design. First, we conducted a teaching experiment, followed by in-depth interviews, flow-maps, and meta-listening activities, to assess the students' thought processes and cognitive structures with respect to engineering design. This paper presents and discusses the results of this study and the findings can serve as a reference for the future design, development, and implementation of related curricula.
- 4:45 Metacognitive Skills of First Year Undergraduates Through Mathematical Problem Posing Strategies
- In facing the future, analytic and creative knowledge-based power in the frontier higher educational systems is acknowledged. In this respect, over two decades, the educational researchers have specified the effectiveness of problem posing tasks on fostering creative thinking components including fluency, flexibility, and originality in students. Problem posing is defined as the generation of new problems or reformulation of a given problem. However, it remained difficult to determine the effective problem-posing strategies with focus on posers' metacognitive skills to facilitate the problem posing oriented teaching approach in tertiary level. Accordingly, the present exploratory study is performed to explore undergraduates' metacognitive skills through problem posing strategies. The study employed purposive convenience sampling to select twenty four of first year undergraduates of four Iranian universities. Research instruments included problem-posing tasks organized through reconstructing the textbook integral problems based on structured and semi-structured problem posing situations. The constant comparative analysis of interview transcripts demonstrated students' metacognitive skills through problem posing strategies including understanding of problem posing tasks, planning of transformation, constructing new problems, executing, and verifying. They also used 'self-evaluation' approach in moving forward or backward among the five problems posing strategies to achieve results. It was demonstrated that undergraduates more employed the problem posing tasks understanding, and transformation planning strategies. Meanwhile, the metacognitive questions/prompts assisted in formulating and verifying the problem posing tasks. This was addressed by proposing a problem-posing framework that integrates metacognitive skills in problem posing strategies to offer educationists the steps to design effective problem posing strategies to improve undergraduates' mathematical problem posing performances.

- 4:00 Study of the Hand Anatomy Using Real Hand and Augmented Reality
- Anatomy is considered one of the foundation studies for all of the health science students especially medical and nursing students. Anatomy of the hand is complicated. It composes of bones, nerves, blood veins, muscles, and tendon. Memorizing all the details about all those parts is tedious work. To understand the anatomy of the hand using textbooks, video or even digital models need much imagination. With the advances in computer graphics and human-computer interaction techniques, understanding how those body parts move is easy to understand in a visual presentation. Using proper detecting devices to detect this parts of the body along with augmented reality technology, visualize the anatomy of the human hand and how they behave in real time can be understood and remember without long hours of memorization. Augmented Reality (AR) is the technique that allowed the computer-generated objects to overlaid on top of the real world. In our experiment, we will concentrate on studying the bones only. We have selected the Leap Motion, which is the device that can detect the hands and fingers, as a tracking device, and marker-based AR technique for displaying the computer generated bones on top of the real hand. Since the Leap Motion detects the hands and displays the bone in real time, so when a user moves the hands such as waving, all the 3D virtual bones move to the new position just like the real hand. Besides using this tool as the educational tool to help the students have better learning about anatomy, it can also use as an assessment tool for anatomy class as well. Results from testing this tool with volunteer students indicate that it helps them to understand the hand anatomy better and faster than traditional ways.
- 4:15 Model Detecting Learning Styles with Artificial Neural Network
- Currently the detection of learning styles from the external aspect has not produced optimal results. This research tries to solve the problem by using an internal approach. The internal approach is one that derives from the personality of the learner. One of the personality traits that each learner possesses is prior knowledge. This research starts with the prior knowledge generation process using the Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI) method. LSI is a technique using Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) to find meaning in a sentence. LSI works to generate the prior knowledge of each learner. After the prior knowledge is raised, then one can predict learning style using the artificial neural network (ANN) method. The results of this study are more accurate than the results of detection conducted with an external approach.
- 4:30 Improving Students' Learning Outcomes Through E-Service Learning Based on Authentic Learning Strategy
- Student Learning Outcomes are statements that determine what the students know, can do or can demonstrate when they have completed or participated in a course. In order to achieve optimum student learning outcomes in a course at Higher Education Institutions, assessments should be conducted in a meaningful and authentic learning environment, such as service learning. However, for courses involving students from various faculties and across-discipline, they need a technology as a medium for better cooperations in the process of teaching and learning. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to examine the effects of online platform use in the service-learning programme, based on an authentic learning strategy towards Students' Learning Outcome (SLO). A quantitative research design was used to conduct this research, involving 30 undergraduate students from different faculties who enrolled in one of the co-curriculum courses. The data analysis involved a pre-post-test in learning activities score. An analysis of Student Learning Outcomes (CLO1, CLO2, and CLO3) through a series of service learning activities in an online platform, based on authentic learning, showed an increment in the students' scores. Thus, this study concluded that integrating e-Service Learning in an authentic environment provides a further enhancement of Student Learning Outcomes.
- 4:45 A Meta-Analysis on Challenges in Integrating Innovation for Teacher Development
- Innovation is an important shift, aspiration, desire and general request for excellence in education. Innovation offers new ways to approach some aspects of teaching and learning for teachers and the prospect of improved outcomes of learners in that specific context. However, there are many obstacles and challenges in integrating innovation in school. It is commonly known that teachers are the gatekeepers to top‐down educational reform or teaching innovation. It is important to discern and understand how innovation can be generated and disseminated among teachers and how this process can be implemented. This study will provide an overview of the challenges faced by the teachers and school administrators in integrating innovation for teacher's development. Selected research papers, published from 2012 to 2017, were downloaded from SpringerLink, Science Direct, Google Scholar, Taylor & Francis Online, SAGE, JSTOR, Web of Science and Emerald. The results of this meta-analysis revealed that the teachers have the desire to innovate, use technology and improve their practices especially in learning and facilitating process related to 21st century learning. However, they're faced with insecurity brought about by the implementation of new processes, either because they have no training or the lack of knowledge and belief. Findings from this review showed that the teacher's attitude and teacher's readiness are the main challenges to initiate, develop and integrate innovation in schools. It is also beneficial to school administrators and educators to cater and understand the teachers' concern and perception, both before and during the implementation phase of an innovation.

- 4:00 Knowledge Discovery of Game Elements from Literature Review of Gamification
- Gamification is an emerging paradigm which aims to use game elements and techniques to solve the problem in non-game context. Gamification offers the motivation approach to motivate the player to handle the challenge tasks with game mechanics, game dynamics, and components. Nowadays, an open research problem is discovering the set of game elements that consistently result in a more probability of success for a given task or application. The objective of this paper is to review the literature by quantifying game elements with the review methodology and evaluate the model with multi-label classification with the dataset from the literature reviewed. The reviewed literature was first coded author-centrally. After each paper was scrutinized for the analysis, the perspective was pivoted, and further analyses were conducted concept-centrally. In this study, the authors have evidenced the broad interpretation of game elements, including a different terminology to define the way in which gamification is developed. Using a gamification design framework as the reference, the authors propose the use of game elements as aseptic but concrete terminology or technique when the authors need to remark the proved effectiveness of game elements. A systematic review has been conducted that proves the wide variety of game elements, being retrieved a total of fifteen terms of game elements from twenty-two selected papers that were screened from a total of eighty-two documents. Only a few terms are used: points, feedback, levels, leaderboards, challenges, badges, avatars, competition, and cooperation. However, only some can be considered actual elements mechanics and that have not a similar abstraction level. Additionally, the authors examined the relationship between game elements and STD: Competence, Autonomy, and Relatedness with a Data mining technique, Multi-label classification to discovery knowledge of game elements. The results indicated that rFerns algorithm provides the lowest Hamming Loss with 4.166667%. Furthermore, It shows that Multi-label Rain Forest (rfsrc) in Algorithm adaptation method and Rain Forest (RF) in Problem transformation method provide the same Hamming Loss with 29.166670%. Moreover, rFerns algorithm provides the highest accuracy with 87.5% for Competence, and 100% for Autonomy and Relatedness. Furthermore, It shows that Multi-label Rain Forest (rfsrc) in Algorithm adaptation method and Rain Forest (RF) in Problem transformation method provide the same Accuracy with 87.5% for Competence, and 62.5% for Autonomy and Relatedness. The results from this study will be used to design a gamified system in healthcare context to promote physical activity.
- 4:15 Serious Game Attributes for Construction Hazard Identification Framework
- In recent years gaming products have increasingly been used to enhance learning and training development in academic and commercial sectors. Games have become more pervasive which they have been adopted for use in many industries and sectors such as defense, medicine, architecture, education, city planning and government; as tools for workers development. Gaming is an approach that applies technology to provide an almost real experience with interactive field training. It is an approach that support the theory of learning by doing with real case scenario. The purpose of this paper is to determine serious game attributes to support effective training using serious game approach. Through systematic literature review on eleven selected articles, nineteen game attributes were identified. Aiming at designing a serious game framework for hazard identification training module, these game attributes need to be categorised according to the educational perspectives. The target is to deliver effective and active training module to construction-related workers. Hence, based on the definition and description from the articles, text analyses were conducted to determine categories of attributes based on educational theories perspectives. This study adopted the deductive contents analysis approach which 14 relevant research articles between 1994 and 2016 were identified from the Web of Science and SCOPUS database. After analysing the content of the texts, twelve attributes were identified within four learning theories. It appears that serious game attributes according to the educational perspectives are being practiced using various ideas, term and concepts. Hence, the findings can be justified that serious game attributes are important to enhance the effectiveness of training module. All these attributes will become part of serious game framework for hazard identification training modules.
- 4:30 Understanding the Level of Self-Directed Learning and Decision Making Style of Construction-Related Workers
- Current serious game framework still lack in fulfilling the users requirements. This is due to the framework elements which only focus on the process of delivery. Hence, this study was carried out to determine user's ability in self-directed learning and their styles in making decision. This study forms part of a larger research on framework for serious game framework for hazard identification training modules. A set of questionnaire consist of three sections which are demographic, decision-making styles and level of self-directed learning was designed. In decision-making styles 49 items are measured representing eight styles in decision making i.e. vigilant, dependent, avoidant, anxious, confident, spontaneous, brooding and intuitive. Meanwhile self-rating scale consist of 50 items were used to measure the level of self-directed learning i.e. awareness, learning strategies, learning activities, evaluation and interpersonal skills. Data was collected from 319 construction-related workers and analysed using mean comparison and ANOVA. Findings confirmed that their style of decision-making is inclined to 'vigilant' and 'brooding' types. The results revealed two levels of self-directed learning, namely, moderate level for supervisor and high level for general workers, skilled workers, consultants, management team and safety trainee. This level of self-directed learning is influenced by their level of education and working experiences. The findings also highlights that decision-making style has moderate relationship with the level of self-directed learning among construction-related workers. The study contributes to the understanding of the construction workers needs in enhancing their skills in becoming independent and lifelong learners.
- 4:45 The Role of Game Elements in Improving Jawi Skills Through Mobile Game 'G-Jawi'
- The existence of a game-based mobile application in the field of education has largely helped students to be more interested and motivated to learn due to the presence of game elements in the apps which makes learning more interesting. The Jawi script is one of the subjects that is difficult to learn by younger generation since they do not apply the use of Jawi in their private lives. The inclusion of creative features such as game elements should attract students to explore the Jawi script. A pre- experimental one- group pre- test and post- test study was conducted in which a game-based mobile application for learning Jawi subject named G-Jawi was developed and tested among 20 primary school students in order to observe how the elements of the game in the mobile app impacted their Jawi spelling skills. The apps were also evaluated by 5 teachers and the findings shows that the game-based mobile application was able to improve the students' performance. This finding was supported by positive results amongst the students which revealed a mean value for the post- test was higher than the pre- test of 89.00. In conclusion, the mobile games app has successfully enhanced student's understanding of Jawi subjects compared to the traditional learning methods. Keywords— game- based mobile application, game elements, Jawi under-standing, and students' performance

- 9:15 Development of Virtual Pulse Simulation for Pulse Diagnosis Studies
- Pulse signals can be used to observe the early sign of patients' health problems. From medical researches, monitoring the characteristic of arterial pulse waveform shows some risk indicator of specific diseases, e.g., hypertension, cardiovascular and heart failure diseases. A simple way to get arterial pulse wave is by using fingers to touch the radial artery position on the wrist. In the traditional Chinese medicine, a physician can use the information of arterial pulse wave-form to identify diseases based on the physician's ability and experience. The improvement of the skill in pulse measurement can be improved by training using various kinds of pulses that represent each disease. This paper proposes a development of the virtual pulse simulation using Augmented Reality (AR) and haptic device for pulse diagnosis studies under various situations. The pulse simulation generates arterial pulse waveforms based on Sine and Gaussian functions. In this study, the mathematical model can generate the pulse wave like human pulse by setting up specific parameters. We can generate pulse waveform which representing different kinds and states of diseases by varying the mathematical model and parameters such as pulse rate or pulse pressure. The features of this work include how to generate force feedback from the mathematical models using the haptic device and how the virtual 3D can display visual feedback. The pulse simulation is useful for the health sciences students, especially the nursing students in training to identify some diseases. The evaluation of the system was carried out by first-year nursing students regarding usability, satisfaction, and performance.

- 9:00 Retrieval Based Learning in Java Programming and Online Application
- The production of a program requires learners to be skilled in basic concepts of programming, to master mathematical formulas, appropriate syntax usage, and in-depth knowledge in programming languages. Typically, in forming a program, students should be able to identify problems, generate algorithms, and convert algorithms into program code according to the syntax. Therefore, a java programming course requires a student to master cognitive thinking in which students can recover knowledge by using 'retrieval-based learning' as a basic recollection strategy in learning programming languages. The retrieval-based learning method refers to the following five wave: mnemonic, semantic, episodic context account, map concept and quiz. Through these five wave, students should be able to implement retrieval method such as produce their own practice questions, quizzes, scan cards, to rewrite learning, repainting of learning, and concept maps. Instructional materials should include formative (topical) assessment, emphasis on text and content requirements, use of open-ended questions (subjective), answers or feedback, repeating exercises, and student achievement estimation. The main contribution is to create a descriptive java programming lesson which includes the choice of difficult topics, learning activities, teaching and learning modules, and online learning. However, the initial purpose of this study is to determine the most difficult topics in java programming, the retrieval-based learning used by students, as well as online student learning modules among students in Diploma of Computer Science (Programming) in vocational colleges. The instrument used to collect the data is through online questionnaire and the findings were analysed using SPSS software by giving the percentage value for each element studied. The sample of the study was 110 students in Diploma of Computer Science (Programming) from four vocational colleges in Malaysia. The findings from the preliminary study conducted by the researcher are presented in detail in this paper. Keywords Retrieval- based learning, Java programming

- 9:15 Game Based Learning of Stack Data Structure to Simplify Understanding
- Data structure and algorithm is an important course in computer science and information technology programs, applied in almost all courses. Failure to master it will affect student's academic performance during study, getting job interviews, passing job interviews, and create an inefficient information technology employee. Unfortunately, understanding the course is a worldwide problem because of its complicated concept, abstract mathematics, and complex dynamic changes. Consequently, teaching and learning are both challenging. Researchers implemented several solutions to facilitate teaching and learning such as using testers and visualizers, graphics-based approach, active learning approach, and active teaching tools. Static, dynamic, and interactive visualization failed to engage learners continuously, frequently, and actively. Since 2010, the use of game-based learning (GBL) to simplify the course's understanding has flourished, due to advancement in technology and the digital native's familiarity with digital games. However, designing a data structure GBL is difficult since the algorithm of the data structure has to be incorporated in the gameplay. Thus objective of the research is to design and develop a stack data structure GBL to facilitate the comprehension of array and linked-list implementation of the insert and delete operations using Last In First Out principle based on existing GBL model and data structure game design guidelines. Instructional content is embedded in general game design elements, game appearance design, and game mechanics design. Players have to respond (behaviour) to a series of question. Remaining Lives, Player Score, and Timer are displayed at all times (system feedback) during game. Based on feedback, player make judgements on how to proceed with game. In outcome phase, it is hoped that player achieve learning outcomes of game.

- 11:00 Empowering Teachers in the Socialization of the Anti-Sexual Violence Behavior in Primary Schools
- Teachers, especially elementary school teachers, have a central role for the students because they do not merely teach academic subjects, instead, they must also be able to instill moral values, behavior, and other life values. Any teachings and examples given by teachers, gives deep impressions for the students, including knowledge and values related to sexuality issues. Therefore, teachers should become a good mediator for the students in under-standing the basic sexual values, as well as skills against sexual abuses. Facts showed that many cases of sexual harassment and violence occurred to elementary school students, yet they did not have the knowledge, courage, and skills to withstand against the people who harmed them. A multimedia-based teaching media, animation, and user friendly digital books were developed to empower the teachers. The other aim to be achieved was the formation of communication and parent-student-teacher partnership. Hence, they were integrated in achieving one purpose which was protecting children from sexual violence. The method used was discussion forums, in where the teachers were divided into small groups, in order to achieve the goal which was the empowerment action among elementary school teachers in socializing of anti sexual violence behavior. All teachers involved were the principals and teachers of two elementary schools in Salatiga, Central Java, Indonesia. Moreover, those teachers were also given the opportunity to directly practice using the media provided to the children. The impact of this action program were the establishment of tranquility and comfort in the community's social life. The teachers were increasingly skilled and encouraged to have courage in socializing anti sexual violence to the students. The teacher-student-parent communication was able to assist them in making early identification and appropriate responses to sexual violence occurred to the elementary students.
- 11:15 Potency of Human Trafficking in South Kalimantan (a Qualitative Descriptive Study)
- Human trafficking is a problem which keeps growing bigger. Meanwhile, the cases of the problem until recently revealed are just small parts of it. The analogy can be described like an iceberg, small at the surface, but very large indeed inside. The problem of human trafficking can be categorized as a social problem. This is because the occurrence does not stand alone, but there are factors that encourage the emergence of the problem, namely factors of poverty, employment, education, migration, family, social and cultural conditions and the lack of attention to the mass media. Based on the problem, the purpose of the research is to reveal the elements, the locations and the link between entertainment industry and potency that can encourage the emergence of human trafficking in South Kalimantan. To reveal them all, theoretical review as a tool to analyze is framework theories. Trafficking when linked to this concept is considered social deviation. The method used in this research is descriptive qualitative to enable researchers to freely detail and describe the events as well as explore the data. Thus, the potency of the emergence of human trafficking can be identified and described well. The results show that the most dominant factors driving the emergence of trafficking are economic factor and low education. In addition, potential locations of human trafficking are entertainment venues, hotels, beauty salons, localization, dimly lit stalls and Indonesian workers agencies. These locations are vulnerable areas and these sites can grow well in areas where an industry is also growing, especially coal mining industry. Keywords: Potency, Human Trafficking

- 11:00 Mathematical Problem Posing Framework of Undergraduates in Learning Basic Calculus
- Problem posing is defined as the generation of new problems or reformulation of a given problem. Contemporary educational practice not only place a heavy emphasis on problem-solving but also on problem-posing. Problem-posing tasks in learning basic Calculus (Calculus-1) have yet remained unexplored at the tertiary level. This study investigates undergraduates' problem posing abilities regarding task organization, knowledge base and preferred strategies. In this exploratory research, one hundred and twenty-four first year engineering students of four Iranian universities were selected. The study employed purposive convenience sampling. Research instruments included problem-posing tasks organized through reconstructing the textbook integral problems based on structured and semi-structured problem posing situations. The thematic analysis of students' pen-paper data demonstrated two main categories of undergraduates' problem posing abilities were including "ability in performing cosmetic changing" and "ability in performing significant changing". Meanwhile, they were more competent to apply 'Modifying given' heuristics in terms of cosmetic changes in a structured situation, compared to significant changes i.e. 'What ..., if not?' heuristics in semi-structured situations. This means that participants were only able to follow the processes of original textbook problem in the imitation manner which indicated their weakness in representation basic theorems as a cognitive aid, and constructing a novel link between two existing mathematics concepts or with the real life situations by using precise mathematics language. These findings elaborates that the students' problem posing performances can be fostered by incorporating problem posing activities in teaching-learning materials.
- 11:15 Factors That Influence Poor Interest in Mathematics of Low Mathematics Achievers Among Form Four Students
- Mathematics is often said to be difficult subject by many students and Malaysia's achievements in TIMSS and PISA have also not yet reached its target. One of the reasons for this phenomenon could be due to the poor interest of students in Mathematics. Therefore, this study aims to identify the factors that influence students poor interest in mathematics especially among low mathematics achieving students. This study used a qualitative approach through interview method. The researchers used semi-structured questions where interview protocols were adapted using the Three Dimensional Model of Attitude by Zan and Martino. This study involved 13 participants who are currently in Form 4 at a school in Masai, Johor. They achieved D, E and F in Mathematics Form 3 Examination (PT3). The data obtained from the one to one interviews were analyzed based on thematic analysis to identify the themes that represented students' interests in mathematics. Five themes emerged from the analysis which are Limited Understanding Of Mathematics Subject, Teacher Factors , Students' Own Attitudes, Influence Of Friends And Environment And Parent Factors. To conclude, not all students who are not interested in mathematics subjects do not want to change. They need support from parents, peers and surroundings and more importantly, substantial support from teachers. Therefore, the researchers hopes that the findings of this study can inform teachers and parents of the support the students need in order to increase their interest in mathematics.
- 11:30 Using Smart Board to Overcome Higher Order Thinking Skills Learning Difficulties in Data Handling Among Primary School Students
- Data Handling at primary school involves gathering and recording information and then presenting it in a way that is meaningful to others. It is an integral part of children's mathematical understanding. Initial concepts of Data Handling need to be exposed to children in the early years since these skills will be used and built upon throughout their education. Due to its importance, Data Handling is included in the curriculum at primary level in Malaysia. However results of international assessments which focused on the use of higher order thinking skills showed that Malaysian students performed poorly in Data Handling. Therefore, this study was conducted to identify students' learning difficulties in Data Handling at each level of higher order thinking skills (HOTS) namely applying, analysing, evaluating and creating. In addition, this study also investigated the use of smart board in overcoming HOTS learning difficulties in Data Handling. Many educators recommend the use of smart board at primary schools since students have the opportunity to learn and explore new concepts using the technology. Subsequently, it helps to create dynamic learning experiences and students become excited about learning when smart boards are incorporated into their lessons. Four experienced year five mathematics teachers and thirty year five students from a primary school were involved in the study. The students and teachers were selected based on purposive sampling. An interview protocol and rubric for cognitive domain in HOTS were used during the data collection phase. In addition, semi-structured interview sessions with the teachers and students as well as document analysis of the students' mathematics exercise sheets in Data Handling were carried out by the researcher to investigate the students' learning difficulties at each level of HOTS in Data Handling. It is hoped that the results from this study can contribute towards development of strategies, methods or programs using smart board to enhance HOTS in Data Handling among primary school students in Malaysia.

- 12:00 Console Application to Predict Satellite Position for Novice Learner
- A satellite is an object that orbits around a larger object in space, such as the earth that orbits the sun and the moon that orbits the earth. We can see the location of the satellite using the satellite tracking software such as Satview and Orbitron. The main issues are most of the student only knows the position of the satellite by using a commercial satellite tracking system without learning how it is worked. The purpose of this research is to identify how to simulate the position of the satellite in its own orbits from our location at the specified time. In order to properly determine the position of any earth orbiting object, it is necessary to determine the osculating orbital elements of the selected satellite by using two line element (TLE) set provided by North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD). Here, the model Simplified General Perturbations (SGP) must be used to predict the most accurate the position and velocity of the satellite-derived from the calculation of orbit state vectors of satellite and space debris relative to the Earth-Centered Inertial Coordinate System. This model is able to determine the most accurate satellite's position before, after and during an epoch. To perform this methodology, an application is developed with an easy implementation using programming language C++ that able to provide the position of the satellite at high accuracy. This program will present the NORAD TLE as the input data, while the output provides the latitude, longitude, and altitude also a summary of the application. Hence, this development tool will provide a better understanding and help in learning how to calculate orbit state vectors of the satellite in order to determine the position and speed of the satellite. It will also help in acquiring new knowledge in the area of space sciences, as well as in computer science and mathematics
