Hello there and welcome back to the Lilypad!
As you may already know, FrogAsia is a social enterprise that catalyses change in education by doing things differently and our amazing team are a bunch of people who are passionate about transforming education through technology. As part of the first effort in the world to connect an entire nation through a single, cloud-based learning platform, we are constantly looking for ways to create an impact in teaching, learning and classroom spaces. What matters to us most is that we want to make a difference and we believe that it starts from us.
We do what we do because we care about the society and the world we live in. Our aim is to make a difference - challenging the status quo by building a future generation that cares and one that can adapt and thrive through constant change. What better way than to help them see that it is not about doing different things, but doing things differently.
At FrogAsia, we provide products and services that are focused on enabling teachers, parents, child and education partners to come together to provide students with the best education possible. We have a vision, one where every child has full access to 21st century education - anytime, anywhere, on any device, regardless of background or location.
Here are our key 2017 highlights:
In a world where knowledge and skills are being acquired at a rapid pace, how we apply it is most important. 21st century learning environments are necessary to prepare students with the skills to apply knowledge to real-life situations so that they can be equipped for tomorrow’s world. At FrogAsia, we play our part in empowering students, parents, and teachers to be changemakers in education through our suite of products and services, and various initiatives.
In 2017, over 1 Million hours of revision was spent on our gamified-learning engine, FrogPlay.
To further expand the use of 21st century teaching and learning initiatives, FrogAsia has designed programmes and held awards to not only facilitate but also to empower and celebrate educators across the nation from all levels.
In 2017, there are 175 hubs and 874 Gold Advocates, in 15 states. There is at least 1 Advocate Teacher in every state and 1 Hub in every district.
The journey of teaching and learning are equally important as both co-exist to provide a quality educational experience. Both teachers and students require the space that allows them to explore new possibilities and expand their knowledge, skills and experiences to thrive in a world that is constantly changing and evolving.
In 2017, an independent study showed that our Frog Classrooms allowed teachers to be more creative and innovative with their teaching approach, and that the classrooms more learned-centered allowed students to practice more independent learning while also being comfortable working in groups.
At FrogAsia, we constantly challenge the status quo by finding new ways to do things differently to transform the education in Malaysia. We support schools, teachers, students and parents in their journey towards 21st century education and encourage them to become catalysts of change in their community.
In 2017, we ran our first community-led Leaps of Knowledge, kLeaps in voluntarily run by Frog Gold Advocate Teachers which drew with more than 320 participants to Langkawi. Over 50% of the participants flew over from other states in Malaysia just for this event.
2017 saw us achieving incredible milestones making an impact in the Malaysian education system. But our journey does not stop here! We strive to bring about more positive change and impact in 2018. So hop along with us as we continue our journey in transforming education and making a difference in this world, together!
