KUALA LUMPUR: Teach For Malaysia is the latest partner to join YTL Foundation in ensuring that students learn from home during the Covid-19 school closure.

YTL Foundation in collaboration with YTL Communications and FrogAsia launched its Learn From Home initiative on March 25 to enable online learning from home, leveraging YTL Communications’ Yes network and FrogAsia’s content and digital platforms.

Under the initiative, parents can register for free Yes 4G SIM cards with 40GB data and have access to learning resources and the FrogPlay mobile app with more than 5,000 revision quizzes for free.

YTL Foundation has received overwhelming response, with the majority of registrations coming from lower income communities in semi-urban and rural areas.

Teach For Malaysia fellows and alumni, who have experience teaching in high-need government schools, will be volunteering their time to work with FrogAsia to produce innovative and engaging online lessons covering Mathematics, Science and English for Year One to Form Five.

The lessons will be tailored to address the part of the national school curriculum that students will miss over the next weeks of school closure.

These lessons will be added to the bank of English lessons already released by FrogAsia this week.

The other content partner, Pelangi, has curated quizzes in FrogPlay Mobile and is also providing content for the FrogAsia lessons.

“Bringing online learning to our most challenged communities resonates with Teach For Malaysia’s mission and core values, on

top of ensuring continuity of teaching in the schools where our fellows are placed, ” said Teach For Malaysia chairman Tunku Ali Redhauddin Ibni Tuanku Muhriz (pic).

YTL Foundation will continue to actively seek new partners and collaborators to make learning from home as rich and enjoyable an experience as possible.

The Teach For Malaysia-FrogAsia lessons are available at ytlfoundation.org/learn.

These lessons together with the FrogPlay mobile app can be downloaded for free regardless of whether parents have registered for the Yes 4G SIM.
