“I not Stupid’ Movie Session. :)

01 Nov

Hmmmm, today is MMSEL class and I got beautiful class in that day, why? Because I watched an amazing movie that can motivate me and teach me to always say thanks to God about what I have. But before I told about film, first of all, I want to tell the activity before we watched the movie.

In the first activity, we talked about our midterm. Oh My God, I feel so afraid and so nervous about the task. It’s wonderful task. Hehehhehehee, because we must do presentation in group and make a report about our school experience. But, it’s okay, hopefully all of us can do the best and get better. Amin. 🙂

Okay, after talking about the midterm task, we continue about watching movie, actually this activity will be replace by the discussion because some of reason, hehehhe, But, thanks again, the reason can be erase and we could watch the movie that has title “I not Stupid” from Thailand. Only the little story, this film tell about children that has special ability, I mean not ability like six sense but they has ability to draw well, so that he can be a second winner in the drawing competition in USA, the another about students that don’t like math but he try to love and know deeper about math, so that he can get good mark in math.

Okay, now I will talk about reflection after I watched this film. So many things that I got, I learn that if we want to reach my dream, we must belief that we can reach it, don’t be lose and we must struggle harder to get it. I see that, the students in that film has Extrinsic and Intrinsic Motivation to reach their want. For example, one students want to be a smart student, because he want all people around him give appreciate to him, so that he work harder to get good in math, until he get 92 in his final exam. It’s really inspiring me. I also see his intrinsic Motivation, because he has a big struggle to reach his goal. He also has view that ability and intelligence is not stable can be increased by effort (Incremental view of Intelligences). I hope I can do like this.

Another story about student that has ability to draw, but he is not good in math. I can see his effort to be good in math, even he must hit by his mother or his mother not allows him to draw. I think, this student has a little good self-efficacy, because he knows that he is good in drawing, he still draw even though his mother not allow it. I think his mother can decrease his self-efficacy. Maybe, the mother purpose is good, but the way is not good. It can make her children not save and feel sad, so that make him to do something unexpected, for example he try to kill himself. From that situation, I can see that environment in the family can influence someone habit. It’s appropriate with Maslow Theory. Everyone need physiological, safety, and loves to make them feel comfort with the environment. But this needs must be controlled not too much, because the effect is not good too if we give it much. For example in this film, Terry, a rich students, always get what he want, they get psychological, safety, and loves need to much, it make him depend on his family, and it difficult to make him to decide something. So, in the conclusion, it good we get all of the need, but it must be controlled.

in the same time, I more understand that everyone has a strength and weakness. we must to appreciate it, this film also make me more grateful to God about everything that God given to me. All of us is different and it make us rich. it’s not about who you are and what you have, but it’s about how you can improve it so that everything that you have can be useful for other. It’ just my opinion. 🙂

Okay, I think enough for my reflection. For the note, this film makes me crying and laughing in the same time. Heheheheheheh. Great Film.

    That’s really nice film evik. We can reflect ourselves by watching this movie because this movie tells about many things from different perspective. as you said before that we can see from intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. Motivation can be appeared not only from ourselves, but also the environment. Good environment can support the children in reach what they want.
    Nice reflection evik 🙂

    Dear Evik,
    I’ve read your reflection.
    It looks like you are really incremental view person. hehe..
    Because you believe that every one can improve their ability and people do not need to be afraid with everything that they have / don’t have because everything can be improved. 🙂
