Sekolah Kebangsaan Bayan Lepas 2 is a town school located under PKG Bayan Lepas, in Barat Daya, Penang. The school has over 640 students and 49 teachers. The school started actively using Frog in 2018 when they received new Netbooks and Zoom internet devices. It started from Cik Nisrin binti Zainal Abidin, who is now a Gold Advocate, when she began using Frog in her classroom. She experienced the effectiveness of utilising Frog in teaching and learning, and started to set an example for other teachers to follow suite.
Cik Nisrin began conducting in-house training to guide teachers on how to create Sites and utilise Frog Boost. From there, more teachers started getting on-board with Frog and began using Frog to conduct lessons in class. Eventually, the use of Frog grew where subject departments, such as English, Maths and Science, started having friendly-competitions to achieve the highest usage of Frog Boost.
Needless to say, the school was very active throughout the Frog Championships: Level Up for English, Maths and Science. On a district level, the school won third place in Level Up English and Science. The enthusiasm and excitement of students had greatly driven and motivated teachers to utilise the VLE platform everyday in teaching and learning. With such positive impact generated through Frog, Headmistress Puan Hanzaneza binti Abd Hamid continues to support Cik Nisrin in her efforts to cultivate Frog into the school’s culture.
Frog is making a difference in Teaching & Learning
Since using Frog, students have taken more control over their learning journey. Learning has become more student-centric where students are encouraged to do independent learning and self-assessment. Students enjoy using FrogPlay because of the gamification elements, that makes learning fun and interesting. Teachers are very happy to see that students are taking initiative to improve and progress further in their academics.
