“They like learning with games, which makes the experience fun.

“Learning does not have to be limited to the classroom. With Frog VLE, students are able to access and complete quizzes at any given time using laptops and smartphones,” he said.

“I commend Frog teachers for their good work in taking teaching and learning to the next level in Perak.

“I hope all the teachers, students and parents here today will benefit from this latest technology in education,” he added.

Also present were YTL Foundation programme director Datin Kathleen Chew and FrogAsia Sdn Bhd executive director Lou Yeoh.

During a question-and-answer session with Yeoh, SMK Raja Perem-puan Ipoh principal Datin Rogayah Sukor said many of her students had seen an improvement in their studies.

“I am really proud that students who used to fail are now passing their subjects. This is because the quality of education has improved through Frog,” she said.

“They are now more tech-savvy and use Frog to complete homework, quizzes, assignments as well as do research, assessments and extra revision.”

SK Besout 5 headmaster Fuad Ramli said his pupils loved using Frog and were willing to go to school even on weekends.

“This has directly contributed to better academic performance.

“Results have improved significantly and our school was one of the top three Felda schools in Perak and one of the top five Felda schools in Malaysia in UPSR,” he said.

Fuad added teachers’ workload had decreased.

“Teachers don’t have to rush to prepare for lessons anymore. They are more motivated now and students are more interested in learning,” he added.
