Sekolah Kebangsaan Tansau is a primary school located in Penampang, Sabah, with 776 students and teachers. The school runs two sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, as classrooms are limited within the school building. The school was introduced to Frog in 2013 but became active and consistent in using Frog in 2017.
The driving factor of success of Frog in the school is Mr Jayabalan, the school’s admin and English teacher. When the senior leadership team approved and gave him the support, Mr Jayabalan started to approach teachers about Frog and shared with them on how to utilise the platform for teaching and learning.
To ensure that Frog is consistently utilised in the school by teachers and students, the school implemented a booking calendar and class schedule to encourage full utilisation of the computer lab so that lessons can be conducted with Frog. Mr Jayabalan organised “Jaya Boleh Quiz” for students to continue using Frog during school holidays. The school would also organise monthly activities on Frog to help students improve in their subjects.
Frog is making a difference in Teaching & Learning
Teachers have organised monthly schedule so that each class uses Frog in teaching and learning. Students are excited about using Frog in class, and would even ask teachers who were not using Frog in class to assign homework through the VLE as the school’s computer lab is open for students to do revision and complete assignments.
Frog is making a difference in Administration
Teachers submit their lesson plans online using the eRPH application through Frog. This enables the senior leadership team to monitor lesson plan submissions. Not only that, the school’s admin uses Frog as a one-stop centre to share information with the school community via the school’s dashboard on Frog. School notices and announcements are uploaded onto the dashboard and are easily accessible by teachers, students and even parents.
Frog is making a difference in Community Engagement
Parents are more connected with what is happening in school
The school conducts sharing sessions with parents to create awareness and educate parents on how Frog helps students in their education. Parents are convinced and encourage their children to use the VLE at home for homework and revision.
Teachers come together as a community to inspire and support one another and students in 21st Century teaching and learning
