Data logging is an electronic device that records data by using sensors. Data logging is based on a digital processor or computer. Data logging include engage, empower and also enhance that need to use after using data logging. Engage, empower and enhance is something that we need to plan an experiment to get a successful results. The example of data logging that I have done is about an anaerobic respiration. Anaerobic respiration does not need oxygen to complete the process. There are two type of anaerobic respiration that is alcoholic fermentation and lactic acid fermentation. The engage of this data logging is about the problem why certain situation is occurring. The empower is the experiment that we need to do that is the most important part in data logging because we need to use the data logging equipment. The last part is the enhance, enhance is the question that need to answer based on the topic in the data logging that is anaerobic respiration.
There are some advantages of implementing engage, empower and enhance. The benefit for me especially as students are can get better understanding of science concept. For example, if we can`t understand or follow certain topic in science subject, this model can help us to know clearly about that topics. Besides, I can get better understanding of scientific experimentation. This mean that I can handle the experiment well and also know how to use the data logging apparatus carefully. The other benefit by using this model is the experiment can be done very fast or in the other word we can save time because the computer that need to use in data logging was detect all the information about the experiment, so it will save our time. Besides of the advantages, it also have the bad things about this model that is data can be lost because data logging just only use the computer to detect all the information about the experiment, so if anything happen with the computer, all the data will disappeared or missing.Futrhermore, the disadvantage is the students may not relate science concepts to microscopic and symbolic system representations.
Simulation is the animation that explain clearly about the certain topics. Modeling is the animation that can we change the variables and we can know the effect. As students or teachers, there are many benefit in using this three things in teaching and learning process. This three types can help students more understand about the certain topics. Besides, through this, students will be able to visualized the process clearly on how that process happen. It also can make attract students to learn about certain topics that using the data logging, simulation and also modeling because we can play like a game. There are some advantages for students by using data logging, simulation and also modeling in their learning processes. Although, for teachers, by using this three things, it will make the way on how to teach students more easier because as teachers , we can show to students a lot of topics that using data logging, simulation and modeling. Furthermore, teachers can expose or can get more information about certain topics that use data logging, simulation, and modeling,so,teacher’s knowledge can increase day to day. Its is some advantages and disadvantages to students and teachers in using the data logging, simulation and modeling in certain topics that related to science subject especially Biology.
My opinion about this subject that is ICT in Biology that I have learned for a semester is that very interesting subject and also fun because we can get a lot of information about something that I don’t know before such as in using of smart board. I also had given opportunity to using or handling the smart board. Before this, I don’t know what actually the smart board, after I learn this subject I can know clearly what is that smart board. Furthermore, through this subject , I can know how to build my own e-portfolio or can best described as blog. In this e-portfolio, I can add anything about Something that I have learned in this subject and it was very interesting.I feel so glad that I can learned this subject. I hope that I can improve or use all the skill that I have know in this subject for future as teacher in teaching and learning process.

As we already know that ICT is stand for information and communication technologies. The term of the information technology(IT) is defined as the study or use of electronic equipments especially computers for storing, analyzing and sending out information, while the term of the communication technology is the process of sending, receiving and exchanging information. The fully meaning of  ICT is can best described as a diverse set of technological tools and resources used to communicate, and to create, store, and manage information.” These technologies include computers, the Internet, broadcasting technologies that is radio and television, and telephone. Nowadays, almost of schools in our country especially teachers or educators  use this application that is ICT in teaching and learning process.
In this era of globalization, many teachers or educators have a lot of challenges to faced when using ICT in teaching and learning process. The first challenge that educators had to faced when using ICT in teaching and learning process is not good or not well in maintenance and networking. This is because many teachers especially in our country don’t get enough of exposure about the using of ICT in their study. They only study about the theory only without apply the concept of ICT in their learning process. Furthermore, in this era of technology, teachers always need to update their knowledge from day to day to increase the using of ICT in their teaching and learning, so that students can get the information easily and clearly. Teachers also lack of experience about the using ICT and this the major problem that had to faced by teachers when using ICT in their teaching and learning process.
Otherwise, the lack of time also one of the challenges to the teachers especially when using ICT in teaching and learning process. This mean that when teaching ICT using computer need a lot of time because not all of students know how to use computer, so teachers need a lot of courage and time to handle those students that don`t know how to use computer properly. The lack of time also meaning that when using ICT in teaching and learning process because a lot of syllabus need to finish in short of time, so the time that given is not enough for teachers or educators to teach students properly.
 The other challenges need to faced by teachers or educators when using ICT in teaching and learning process is most of the students especially in rural area have very low of understanding level in using of computer. This is because not all of students in our country have their own computer at their home, so they only can learn how to use it in school only. So, teachers need to play role to let students learn properly when using computer in ICT.
   Last but not least, although teachers or educators had to faced a lot of challenges when using ICT in the teaching and learning process, but ICT can help students in their study especially from day to day. ICT application in education can increase and improve learning from basic skills, problem solving, information management, establishing lifelong learning habits and also concept of development. When using ICT also can provide the means of gathering, connecting and analyzing data about teaching and learning processes.
