Sekolah Kebangsaan (Felda) Lok Heng Selatan is a rural school situated in a Felda estate in Kota Tinggi, Johor. The school has about 450 students and 30 teachers. Students are from low income families as the social economy in the area is mainly palm oil estate. Despite the location and background of students, the school is one of the best schools in Johor and has been recognised by the state education department for utilising Frog the best for two consecutive years in 2016 and 2017. The school is also active in handball and have participated in competitions on a national level.
SK (Felda) Lok Heng Selatan started actively using Frog since 2014 when Cikgu Huszarudin took over as Frog Admin of the school. The school leadership team supported and encouraged him to work together with other teachers to drive the success of Frog in school. The school also collaborated with Pusat Internet Malaysia where students are allowed to use the devices to login to Frog for free during school holidays. Cikgu Huszarudin also trained the people managing the institute on how to use Frog so that they can conduct Frog workshops to guide students and parents.
Frog is making a difference in Teaching & Learning
Through the active use of Frog in teaching and learning, students gained more knowledge on technology and developed better ICT skills. Students are more interested and invested to learn, leading to an improvement in academic performance, especially in Bahasa Malaysia, English, Maths and Science.
A tool for teachers to teach better
Teachers find Frog to be a convenient tool to prepare lessons using Sites and sharing them with students so that they can prepare ahead before class. Teachers are also using FrogPlay as a way to monitor students performance through the progress analytics available via FrogPlay Report. Besides that, Frog is a convenient tool for teachers to conduct lessons as well, especially for relief classes as there is a huge repository of content readily available in Frog.
Frog is making a difference in Administration
Teachers utilise Frog as a convenient sharing platform where they are able to share content and other materials with one another using the Frog Drive. The school admin uses Frog for meeting room bookings so that the administration team is able to monitor and manage timetables and schedules for meeting rooms effectively.
Frog is making a difference in Community Engagement
Parents are more connected with what is happening in school
The school takes the initiative to organise workshops for parents to introduce and familiarise them with Frog as a learning platform. The school also has a Frog Squad consisting of teachers who live within the Felda estate that are always ready to help parents with technical problems such as internet and device connection. Through the passion and efforts of teachers, parents are able to see the benefits of Frog and are supportive the use of Frog at home.
“The Frog VLE is a good platform for learning where students get a chance to learn above their level as Frog provides and have made accessible content and quizzes of different levels.” – Cikgu Huszarudin, Frog Admin and Gold Advocate.
