Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Jit Sin is one of the high performing schools in Penang. The school has more than 2,500 students and 187 teachers. In 2017, the school started actively using Frog as part of utilising the Chromebooks given. The school also has a Frog Classroom that is not only a space for students to learn but for teachers as well.
The Headmaster Mr Lim Thiam Aun, drives the efforts to implement Frog in teaching and learning by supporting and encouraging teachers and students to use Frog. He is consistent in monitoring the Frog VLE usage in the school.
Frog is making a difference in Teaching & Learning
Since teachers began using Frog in class, students have become more interested in the lessons taught due to the incorporation of technology and also the gamified learning elements of FrogPlay. Teachers find that by using Sites to conduct lessons and Assignments to assign students with exercises and homework, students are more inclined to pay attention in class and finish their assignments.
Frog is making a difference in Administration
As assignments are given to students through Frog, teachers do not have to bring home assignments to mark and can easily mark them online through the VLE. Not only that, the self-marking system for FrogPlay quizzes have also reduced workload and saved teachers a lot of time. The school also utilises the school dashboard as an information platform to share notices and announcements with parents. No handouts are given and this has helped the school reduce cost effectively.
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
The school has internal sharing sessions and trainings on Frog by Frog Advocates from other schools. The school’s Frog Advocate, Ms Ho Pei Yuen, supports the Headmaster and assists him in driving efforts by sharing and training teachers on how to use Frog.
“Teachers really like utilising FrogPlay as it contains readily available quizzes that has made preparing for lessons much more convenient.”

“Frog has made me interested in learning again because it’s more fun and interactive, and it gives a different experience altogether.”
