Sekolah Kebangsaan Jati is an urban school located in the outskirts of Ipoh, Perak. The school is one of the top schools in the Kinta Utara district that uses Frog consistently in teaching and learning. Frog was introduced to the school in 2013 and the school became an active user since 2016.
Frog’s success in the school is driven by Puan Mardiana who is the Frog Admin and also a Gold Advocate. The Headteacher supports the implementation of Frog in the school and teachers are cooperative in learning how to use Frog. Not only that, the school also has support from the Parent Teacher Association (PIBG) in incorporating Frog into school activities and events.
Frog is making a difference in Teaching & Learning
Since being introduced to Frog, students are more inquisitive for learning. Students are always arriving at the Frog Classroom before the teacher because they enjoy learning with Frog and in a more conducive environment. With significant improvement seen in students’ interest, teachers are excited to utilise the Frog Classroom and engage students with interactive lessons through the Frog VLE. Teachers have also hosted mini competitions using Sites to further engage students’ participation in different subjects.
Frog is making a difference in Administration
Frog is also being used in the school’s administration. Teachers prepare and submit their lesson plans online through the eRPH application that is embedded into the Frog VLE. This has reduced the paperwork needed to be done by teachers and have also helped save cost. Besides that, the school admin also utilises Frog to record meeting minutes and share school assessment reports with teachers. Frog is also being utilised in extracurricular activities such as student registration, pollings for student representative election, sports clubs, societies and uniform units Sites, as well as Family Day events and announcements.
Frog is making a difference in Community Engagement
Teachers come together as a community to inspire and support one another and students in 21st Century teaching and learning
To engage the surrounding community about Frog, the school opens its doors as a Frog Hub where teachers conduct workshops on how to utilise Frog in teaching and learning as well as administration. The workshops are attended by teachers from nearby schools within the district such as SMK Jati, SK Chepor, SMK Aminuddin Baki and other schools from PKG Manjoi.
“The Frog VLE is easy to use and has raised the bar for teaching and learning. Teachers find it convenient to assign assignments to students through Sites and are able to better engage students in class through the fun gamified elements of FrogPlay.”
