About Alid Misli
Assalamualaikum, May peace be upon you.
Hello. My name is Abdul Walid bin Misli. Alid Misli for short. I was born raised in Brunei-Muara district; in a country called Brunei Darussalam. I’ve been fortunate to lived and experience overseas and other parts of Brunei.
I’ve started writing online and do simple website development since 2004.
I’m a movie buff who regularly visit the cinema. I also like TV shows, music and traveling. I enjoy editing codes and media. I like to go shopping too. I’m a huge fan of Korean Pop and Korean Drama 🙂
My passion is in the area of Education and Technology (Educational Technology).
I’m qualified to teach in Brunei since 2009. I’m a government servant primary school teacher, thus I work at a public, government funded primary school. Graduated from Universiti Brunei Darussalam in 2009. I’ve experienced teaching English language, Science and I.C.T as a subject in primary schools from Preschools level up to Year 6 students.
Over the years, I was blessed to work with several officers within the departments of the Ministry of Education, Brunei. I’ve facilitated teachers workshop such as SPN21 Science workshops and the National’s SBAfL workshop for primary school teachers. I’m so proud to be chosen as participant to School Leadership Programme (SLP) in 2010 and PEAKS ICT Leadership Programme (lvl 1-5) in 2014.
Was an award winning teacher in 2012 organised by Microsoft’s global education initiatives. Lucky to work with Microsoft (Brunei) and Microsoft APAC as their Innovative Teacher and Expert Educator which offer me training and collaboration with other elite teachers from all over the globe in cities like Auckland-New Zealand, Prague-Czech Republic, Redmond-Washington USA and Kuala Lumpur-Malaysia. Through their programmes I gained teaching and management skills and learnt more about 21st Century Teaching and Learning and also learned to utilise modern technologies as tools in the classroom. In 2015, in Redmond USA, I passed my certification exam and officially certified as Microsoft Certified Educator; which is the first for a local government teacher in Brunei. I was one of the Spotlight speaker at the 17th International Conference on Education with their theme: ‘Teaching and Learning in Technology Mediated Learning Spaces.’ The conference was organised by SHBIE of Universiti Brunei Darussalam in 2012. My presentation dubbed “Digital technologies fostering brilliant learners in education”. The content of presentation was on English language acquisition in a rural primary school in Temburong. The learning activities consisted of a series of active communication and collaboration in and outside the school which as result build the students’ English language usage and confident.
In late September 2016, as pre-allocation of my transfer from teaching in Temburong district to Brunei-Muara district, I was temporary station at the office (Unit) of Cluster 1 at the Department of Schools, Ministry of Education. The Unit is responsible to manage and lead the professional and teaching learning business of 26 Government schools, which includes 1 Sixth form centre, 5 Secondary schools and 20 Primary schools that spread across Brunei-Muara district and Temburong district. I act as a supportive staff to the Head of Cluster 1 and her working team. I spend about 3 months working in the office before transferring back to a newly opened primary school in early March 2017.
