"I'M LEARNING FROM MY DIGITAL NATIVE STUDENTS..."
Tok Fen Fen teaches English in Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan St Francis Convent, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. This self-professed digital immigrant teacher uses PowToon to make her English lessons more engaging for her digital native upper-secondary students. As part of her introductory lesson using PowToon, she gave her students the task of creating animated presentations to introduce themselves. Tok Fen Fen was greatly impressed by the students' products. In her own words, "I ended up letting my students teach me about PowToon and how to use it."
Below are some examples of her students' works.
