Education Aid: YK Smart Classroom Project (June 2018)
Many schools in Malaysia have taken a step further in interactive teaching with the introduction of the 21st Century Classroom. The goal of these classrooms is to cultivate better learning environment among the students. Active learning promotes deeper understanding on subjects and are more engaging with students. Studies worldwide have shown that lower-performing students are able to receive greater benefits from active learning.
In order to enhance learning experience with children, Yayasan Kossan is exploring and assessing schools within its vicinity to be eligible for this sponsorship. Schools lacking financial support and with high number of students from low-income families would be the ideal choice for this project to be given the opportunity to improve learning. Among the schools assessed are SJKT Acob, SJKT Batu Ampat, SJKT Hicom and SJKT Meru.
The project is still undergoing assessments prior to determining the right candidates for sponsorship.
