PETALING JAYA: Embrace the new norm of learning via cyberspace while battling the Covid-19 pandemic, says Deputy Education Minister Datuk Dr Mah Hang Soon.
He said that online teaching had become a necessary method for education now.
“During this period, it is no longer feasible or possible to implement the traditional face-to-face learning.
“Cloud and home learning are the new normal teaching models adopted by most countries in the world, ” he said at the virtual launching ceremony of the Talk Zone on Monday.
Dr Mah called on more guests to share through the platform so that the public continues to self improve during these difficult times.
The Talk Zone is one of the series of activities by GoCare Charity Crowdfunding, aimed at supporting and promoting life in the new normal, assisting vulnerable groups who are in need of support, and showing care to frontliners.
GoCare is a charity initiative under the Crisis Relief Squad of MCA (CRSM).
Divided into two categories, the Talk Zone offers the “Online Community Talk” to increase awareness among citizens through knowledge and experience sharing.
At the same time, companies may also leverage on the “Online Business Talk” to disseminate professional information and knowledge in various fields to the public, and help businesses promote their products and services.
The show has covered a range of topics such as medical knowledge, traditional Chinese medicine, stray dogs issues, parent-child interaction, knowledge on citizenship, psychological counselling and music classes, benefiting over 3,000 viewers.
Those who missed the live broadcast can still watch the replay on the LetsGoCare Facebook page.
LA Education founder Amelia Ong, who attended the launch of Talk Zone shared that her company successfully transformed its business model and created a good turnover.
“It is better to adapt and accept the new normal instead of complaining, ” she said.
CRSM central committee member Ricky Soong Wai Chiew noted that the #GoCareBeMYHero Awareness Campaign was also held to assist affected companies.
“During this period, diversified marketing and business models have become imperative, and businesses should use the online models to secure a larger customer base and better turnover during these challenging times, ’’ he said.
The Talk Zone also welcomes professionals and companies to share on this public platform and work together to create a caring society.
