“I always encourage teachers to use Frog in teaching and learning because I want students to feel the use of technology in learning, which is parallel to the 7th amendment of the National Education Development blueprint. Not only that, Frog helps in saving cost now that homework can be assigned via Frog.”
- Mr Wong Hing, Headmaster
Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan (Cina) Kwang Chien is a Chinese school located in the Sarikei district of Sarawak and is well-known for its outstanding academic performances and consistent use of the Frog VLE.
The school started using Frog in 2016 before having 4G internet connection being installed in the school. The use of Frog in the school is strongly supported by the Headmaster, Mr Wong Hing. He sets an example to teachers in school by using Frog in his classroom and always encourage them to do the same.
What drives the success of Frog in the school is the Headmaster’s initiative in getting teachers onboard to create assignment content using Frog for five core subjects, namely Bahasa Melayu, English, Chinese, Maths and Science. Mr Wong Hing does not exempt himself from contributing content to building assignments either. He also conducts regular monitoring on teachers and students VLE usage.
Frog is making a difference in Teaching & Learning
Through Frog, learning has become more interactive and interesting for students because they find it more fun in doing revision with FrogPlay as students enjoy the gaming elements incorporated together with the quizzes. The school has scheduled that all students from across Year 1 to Year 6 are to complete quizzes assigned by teachers on FrogPlay for at least half an hour whenever lessons are conducted in the computer lab. This is to further encourage independent learning in students.
A tool for teachers to teach better
Teachers find it more convenient to prepare homework and exercises for students through the use of Assignments and FrogPlay. Each teacher is required to create Assignments on the Frog VLE based on topics and subjects taught. An annual timetable is structured for teachers to help out in contributing content.
Frog is making a difference in Administration
SJK(C) Kwang Chien uses the school’s dashboard on Frog as a medium to share and disseminate information to the school community. Information are easily accessible on the dashboard. The school encourages teachers, students and parents to constantly login the Frog VLE to check for updates on announcements and other school happenings.
Frog is making a difference in Community Engagement
Parents are more connected with what is happening in school
The school has taken initiative to keep parents connected and involved in school by starting an exposure programme on Frog. The programme is conducted by the school’s Parent Teacher Association (PIBG). One workshop has been carried out to introduce Frog and how its being utilised in teaching and learning so that parents understand the concept of 21st century education and how it benefits students.
“Through FrogPlay, students have more fun in learning and completing quizzes.”
