SJK(C) Heng Ee in Penang has adopted a digital interactive learning approach to teaching and learning.
Several classrooms are now installed with short throw projectors with an interactive board and computer.
Headmaster Lim Chew Kooi said five classrooms were installed with the system for the beginning phase.
“We have also launched a new computer lab for our students to attend their weekly computer classes.
“This project is a collaboration with Dynabook Computer Centre (Penang) Sdn Bhd,” he said at the launch of the digital interactive learning at the school in Macalister Road on Tuesday.
Lim added that the lab had 36 computers and the total cost for all the new equipment was about RM50,000.
He said the teaching and learning process would be more advanced and systematic with the use of these digital equipment.
“I believe the pupils will also be more enthusiastic to learn using these digital materials in the teaching process.
“In addition, some of the pupils here are from low-income families who do not own a computer at home. So, with all these facilities available at school, they will be able to learn about computer and technology,” he said.
Dynabook Computer Centre deputy general manager Chin Siew Fong said the company was responsible for supplying, maintaining and repairing all the products supplied to the school.
“We also provide an instructor to conduct the computer classes for the pupils.
“After this, the teachers can reduce the chalk-and-talk teaching method and use the interactive boards and projectors for their lessons, which will make it more interesting,” she said.
