WITH the reopening of schools nationwide, Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM) continues to extend its assistance as a responsible corporate organisation by deploying an innovative screening solution to selected schools.
The solution deployment is to assist the schools in providing a safer environment for its teaching and learning activities as well as ensuring the health and safety of the students and teachers in the new normal.
TM, in collaboration with Education Ministry, will instal its smart digital health screening solution, called TM One Predictive Analytics Screening Solution or “One Pass” at five schools.
One Pass also carries the Early Warning, Alert and Response system (EWAR) which is a state-of-the-art solution developed by TM Research & Development Sdn Bhd (TM R&D), TM’s innovation arm.
The installation of One Pass at SMK Taman Tun Dr Ismail in Kuala Lumpur, SMK Presint 16 (1) as well as Sekolah Sultan Alam Shah, both in Putrajaya, has been completed while the installations for SM Sains Teluk Intan in Perak and Tahfiz Ma’ahad An Noer in Janda Baik, Pahang, are expected to be completed before July 1.
Through a recent collaboration between TM and Bangsar/Pudu District Education Office on TM Future Skills programme, TM R&D has installed its EWAR solution at 12 schools in the area.
In addition, the schools also received 50 sets of 3D-printed face shields courtesy of TM, demonstrating the usage of TM 3Ducation 3D printing module which is part of the Future Skills programme.
“We share the concerns of parents, teachers and Education Ministry on the health and safety of our children returning to school, ” said TM group brand and communication vice-president Izlyn Ramli.
“This is part of our corporate responsibility initiatives that serve three pillars, which are economic, environment and social (EES), to benefit more Malaysians.
“We are happy to embark on this latest initiative for the education sector under the social pillar.
“The solutions will enable teachers to conduct teaching and learning activities smoothly while providing assurance to the parents on the students’ health and safety.
“We will continue to expand the deployment to more schools as we continuously adapt our services and solutions for our customers and Malaysians in general in going through this unprecedented period.”TM recently handed over 150 sets of 3D-printed face shields to SMK Paya Rumput in Melaka, one of its adopted schools under TM School Adoption programme.
The contribution serves as a good exposure to the students of the school on how the TM 3Ducation 3D printing module can provide solutions to real-life problems.
