Devote more time to English language, not Malay, Putrajaya told

Devote more time to English language, not Malay, Putrajaya told | Innovation in Education | Scoop.it

The forum organised by financial daily The Edge today saw its speakers agreeing on the need to increase proficiency of English among Malaysian students, even to the extent of reintroducing English-medium schools.

This followed Malaysia’s dismal results in two international benchmark studies on education last year: the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) and Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS). In the 2012 edition of PISA, Malaysia was 52nd overall out of the 65 countries, and firmly entrenched in the bottom third of the survey. Datin Noor Azimah Rahim, an outspoken advocate of English education, claimed that Malaysian schools can choose whether to answer the PISA test in English or Malay, and those which chose the former had scored better.

Innovation Center's First Class

Innovation Center's First Class | Innovation in Education | Scoop.it

Feel good news of the day.  The Innovation Center started their first class, an Intro to Computers class, last week.  Well done! 

 

In related news, their Intro to Excel classes start Monday, the 15th, and they also go for 4 weeks.

 

"What we do is a short demonstration of things that can be done with each program, then let them discover, experiment, find out how things work.  The 'undo' button is the magical tool enabling them to try things and go back if it does not look right.  We don't interfere or tell them what is right and wrong, just answer their questions and point them in the right direction.  They help each other too, one discovers and they share."
