task 4-Seminar kebangsaan E-Kom

hye everybody,
This is the 4th posting for the assignment. First of all, thanks to Datin for invite me and my entire friend in group 1 to the PNB Hotel, Darby Park. The conference held on 18-19 Mac 2009. The conference is about the development of ICT among people in rural areas. The topic for this conference is “Merapatkan Jurang Digital”.
There is a lot of intellectual attend the conference. So,i gain a lot of knowledge there. There are several information that i want to share with all.

This topic was presented by a woman from Uitm Penang. It is about the problem among our society on writing.
What is writing apprehension?
Apprehensive writers basically have:
• Negative attitude and perception towards writing-anxiety, fear and worry.
• Perceive writing as a very difficult task-hard to express and elaborate thought and ideas
• Very prejudice toward their own writing performance-believe that they will receive a bad responses and comments from the teacher.
There are several symptoms for the apprehensive writers:
• Hands cramp
• Hate writing
• Mental blocking problem
• Produced shorter essays
• Ideas hardly develop
• Scared to write.
These are happen because of several factors:
• Culture-face saving
• Proficiency level
• Lack of confidence
• Lack role model
• Teachers comment
• Examination
