Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Skudai is a school located in the housing area of Taman Sri Skudai. The school has a total of 1,500 students and 100 teachers. The school was third place in the FrogPlay Championship 2017 and was second place in the FrogPlay World Championships 2018. Cikgu Yu Kok Hui, who is a Gold Advocate, was second place in the 1BestariNet Teacher Awards 2018.
In 2015, the school started its journey with Frog when Cikgu Yu became the Frog Admin. At the time, teachers were already utilising the Frog VLE in teaching and learning, but students were still not using the platform. Cikgu Yu took the initiative to build a team of students called Frog Champions to help encourage other students to use Frog. Students were engaged and started using Frog, not just in school but at home as well.
Frog is making a difference in Teaching & Learning
Each student uses a netbook to access lessons created by teachers on the Frog VLE. Teachers also assign students with quizzes on FrogPlay to assess students level of understanding. Since students started using Frog, class attendance have improved.
Students results in exams have also improved through the use of FrogPlay quizzes and shared past year questions on the VLE.
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
As an active Gold Advocate, Cikgu Yu is always conducting workshops and sharing sessions with teachers and other schools within the Johor Bahru district.

To increase student engagement in the school, Cikgu Yu formed a team of students, called the Frog Champions, who are interested in ICT and utilising the Frog VLE. Frog Champions are given the responsibility to help and support teachers and students with Frog when in the computer lab. They also act as facilitators during Frog workshops for teachers and students, as well as agents to promote and encourage teachers and students to use Frog.
“The Frog VLE, if use optimally, is very beneficial to students through fun learning and encourages students to seek information on the internet to build their knowledge. Frog also gives students an avenue of independent learning and revision. I hope that teachers will introduce Frog into teaching and learning so that students will have the opportunity to learn with technology and build on their ICT skills.”
