The “chalk and talk” method of teaching is still being practised in many schools in Sarawak.

To provide a more interactive way of learning, Progressive Democratic Party (PDP) introduced the Kademy online platform.

PDP Education Special Committee chairman Teo Boon Siew said this during the distribution of 300 educational sets to B40 students in Sibu.

He said the materials were collected by headmasters, parent-teacher associations and committee members.

Teo said that PDP chairman Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing formed the committee to help children in Sarawak pursue their education at top universities in China.

“We hope to extend this online learning project to all B40 students in Sarawak so they can attend extracurricular courses for free.

“We thank all the generous donors who have made the first phase of this project possible for 300 students in Dudong,” he added.
