The school already has a Frog Classroom but is currently setting up for the second one.
Since its introduction in 2013, the school has consistently used Frog in teaching and learning. It started Frog Admin, Cikgu Wan Kok Pin, trained a small group of teachers to use the Frog VLE in teaching and learning. This group of teachers then went on to help other teachers in their journey in 21st Century education.. In 2017, the school received four awards from the district’s education department for the best use of the Frog VLE.
What drives Frog in SJKC Aulong is the entire school community who are very supportive of Frog.

The Headmaster and Parent Teacher Association (PIBG) are also very support of Frog and all Frog initiatives.
Frog is making a difference in Teaching & Learning
Since using Frog, learning has become more fun and interactive, sparking students interest to participate in classroom activities. Teachers find that students are more willing to share ideas and give opinions during lessons. Students are also more motivated to be better in their academic and extracurricular performances.
A tool for teachers to teach better
Teachers prepare exercises and extra content material with Frog to be shared with students for their revision. Through the Frog VLE, teachers are able to directly share information with students during class. Teachers also find that Frog has given them the ability to share videos on sports that teachers cannot demonstrate physically to students.
Frog is making a difference in Administration
The school uses Frog as a platform for online forms, instead of having to use paper forms. This has helped the school save cost and save time from doing double work. Meeting minutes are also recorded using Frog.
Frog has provided teachers an easy and accessible platform to share and locate information from the school at anytime, anywhere. Academic results and extracurricular activities are also shared on Frog and are accessible by students.
Frog is making a difference in Community Engagement
