Let's Blog!

Dear Critters (critical thinkers!)...

As per your request, I have created this blog to facilitate more "PANAS" debates/discussions/dialogue about Critical Thinking issues. Please feel free to post your thoughts, to respond to others, to think and 'speak' your mind.

I have opted for the least cluttered blog template so that load time will be minimized for those of you with less than optimal broadband/disk space (that will be me coz I am a 50% Luddite...what's that?... go find out)

You can respond to an existing post or start your own post. I'm not sure how it works having never had a group blog before but we'll learn as we go. Only thing is we have to register each time we post so that we don't get spammers.

First CT question coming up for your "TEMBAK"... and please feel free to use English or BM or rojak but no Mandarin coz I tak faham... heheh

Peace out,
Carmen

Hooray! Thanks,Dr.Carmen for this wonderful blog! Now I don't have to worry about missing a chance to speak my mind nor will I be restricted by time! And best of all, I can think critically at home with a nice cup of hot chocolate which I'm sure will boost my thinking skills a bit!Haha!How relaxing is that! :P

IreneC said...

Wow... This is cool!! We can go on with critical 'fikir' till...
Thanks Dr Carmen!! We shall continue to think critically and of course contructively, not just for the sake of 'tembak'.
Let not forget those who are 'quiet' one, now it's your chance to 'speak up' if you think you are much comfortable 'talking' with the computer! =)

Yeap I agree that we can continue to think critically at home as well.. After all, Critical Thinking does NOT just end in Uni right??? ;)

So yeah! Let's blog our brains out..

i'm glad Dr Carmen create this blog. i know i am one of the quiet people who don't talk much in class because everytime when i talk something my tongue will goes twisted after that i don't know what to say again.
now i feel much comfortable to give out my view not because of talking to the computer, is because of no one will stare at me when i talk.
yahoo...feel batter now.

sarah said...

Yeah! How cool izzit to have a place to shout out ur opinions and see what others think... To have a place to think and share critically 24-7 and not just in class... To exercise and put into use our critical thinking skills... Thx Dr Carmen for the great blog...

Carmen N said...

Thanks everyone for your upbeat comments!!! hehehe...

Now, who wants to go first and post a topic for us to discuss? Can be something that is a continuation of what we have talked about in class or can be something totally new... can't all be waiting for me to do it lah..

By the way, posting a new topic is different from posting a comment. If you post a new topic, it means it will go on the first page of the blog.

If you are unfamiliar with blogger, please do go check out the various functions first... enter your name and password at blogger.com and then you will be brought to our blog, which you can then learn to navigate and figure your way around...

If you make any major changes to the setting, just let everyone know because since all of you are contributors, this means that all of you can change the settings too.

Ok... gotto run to meeting!

Have a lovely weekend you all! :-)

If you guys have problems figuring out on how-to-use, feel free to ask. I'm glad to help.

You crack the nut first lah, Dr. Carmen. If not, surely nobody will post anything. Right people? Hehe XD

KahJoon said...

i think this blog should be opened to seniors and juniors too..so that more ideas and opinions could be contributed..i would love to have a good debate/discussion on any topic with anyone..hmm..i wonder what would be the first question thrown into the mix ?? i would let others have the honour to come up with a topic because i'm worried if i'm the one who throws the question, no one will be interested..LOL

Carmen N said...

Does anyone know how to install a visit counter to our blog? You know... to count the number of visits to our blog since it's creation?

If you do, can please install it using settings? I want to see how popular we are! hahahah
