YTL Foundation is extending its Learn From Home Initiative to include students from USM.

WITH the Movement Control Order (MCO) going into the sixth week, most universities in the country have moved into online platforms in order that lectures can continue. In the case of Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), a large majority of their 30,000 students are staying at home during the MCO and are slowly adjusting to online remote learning from the comfort of their homes.

Under a collaboration with USM, YTL Foundation is extending its Learn From Home Initiative to include students from USM. From today, students from USM can apply for free Yes 4G prepaid SIM cards with 40 GB of data valid for 60 days. Each student is entitled to one free SIM card only.

YTL Foundation has supported students pursuing degrees in tertiary institutions since 1997 and over the years have granted scholarships to many talented students from USM. Enabling their students to access their online lectures and resources will ensure that none of their students will be left behind due to a lack of affordable and high speed data.

USM deputy vice-chancellor (Sustainability and Institutional Development), Professor Dr Md Roslan Hashim said, “USM is well pleased with this timely collaboration with YTL Foundation. We truly appreciate the Foundation for providing the Learn From Home free Yes 4G SIM cards in supporting the move by the University to implement and facilitate online learning activities for its students during this period of the Covid-19 outbreak.”

The Learn From Home Initiative is open for applications for the free Yes 4G prepaid SIM cards from USM students and parents with children in government schools and independent Chinese Secondary Schools until 31 May 2020.

Visit www.ytlfoundation.org/learn to apply for the free Yes 4G prepaid SIM cards and to register for the FrogPlay Mobile revision quiz app and lessons  in English, Mathematics and Science from Standard 1 to Form 5.

YTL Foundation trusts teachers to help it ensure the most needy students will receive the free mobile phones.

  • YTL Foundation to provide free mobile phone, 12-month YES 4G plan with 120GB data
  • Calls for school teachers to submit nominations of families most in need for devices

YTL Foundation announced 7 April that it is giving away free mobile phones as part of its Learn from Home Initiative. This is in addition to the free YES 4G SIM cards with 40GB of data and free learning resources that have already been made available to students in government schools.

YTL Foundations, working in conjunction with YTL Communications, is offering the free mobile phones to families in the B40 community with children in government schools who do not have smartphones or other smart devices.

Each device offered will come with a prepaid YES 4G SIM card and a 12-month data plan with 120GB of Internet data in total.

The foundation does need help to identify the families most in need of the free devices. As such, YTL Foundation is calling on government school teachers to submit nominations, believing that teachers are best able to identify these families.

“I fully agree that teachers are best placed to evaluate the needs of the students in their class,” says Sherina Aris, former teacher and wife of YTL Foundation trustee Aris Othman.

“I grew up in an extremely poor family, and it was my teachers who helped me finish my education. I had become anaemic from lack of nutrition and it was a teacher who noticed this and sent me to a doctor and found sponsors for my school fees. The other teachers chipped in to make sure I had enough daily nutrition. As a former teacher and someone who has experienced the kindness of teachers, I believe you can trust that teachers have the wellbeing of their students at heart.”

Adding to that, YTL Foundation chairman Francis Yeoh Sock Ping says: “My mother was a teacher and we grew up seeing her dedication to her students. She would give extra classes to her weaker students every day after school, but not before feeding them as she knew that many would not be able to afford a decent midday meal. We salute all teachers and we trust them to help us ensure that their most needy students will receive the free mobile phones.”

Teachers can nominate students to receive a free device at www.ytlfoundation.org/learn. Successful candidates will be notified and will be required to submit their registration for the free mobile phone and 12-month YES 4G data plan.

Making e-learning accessible: YTL Foundation is calling on teachers to nominate children from B40 families to receive free mobile phones and data under its ‘Learn from Home initiative’.

ONLINE learning platforms like the Frog VLE (Virtual Learning Environment) have proven to be handy for teachers and students when face-to-face teaching activities get disrupted.

A firm believer of technology’s role in improving education, SMK Air Molek, Melaka, principal Norsiah Abd Rahman said the movement control order (MCO) is a wake-up call for society to realise the importance of e-learning.

“In these times, online platforms are the only way to ensure teaching and learning are not affected. If teachers cannot teach, students are the ones that will be most impacted.

“E-learning is the future of education. Teachers need to start learning and using technology in the classroom, and parents need to be on-board with supporting schools in utilising digital education tools,” she said.

She added that it is the teachers’ duty to stay updated with technology to enable e-teaching.

Her students have all downloaded FrogPlay Mobile, a gamified app with revision quizzes for every core subject taught in national schools from Year One to Form Five, through the Frog VLE platform, as everyone has mobile phones but not all have computers at home.

Students can access learning resources via FrogPlay Mobile for free.

Through the app, she said their students are encouraged to download and complete quizzes during this time.

“Meanwhile, we ask our teachers to come up with creative ways to encourage students to continue learning using their mobile phones.

“I believe in utilising technology as much as possible to engage and interact with students.

“Technology helps keep them interested and engaged in their lessons, besides helping them be more creative and innovative, and improving learning outcomes,” she said.

SJKT Ladang Elaeis, Johor, teacher Eswaran Balakrishinan shared Norsiah’s sentiment.

He said teachers who have yet to utilise online platforms should use the MCO to kickstart the “e-learning movement”.

“Getting started can be the most difficult step, but you just have to. If teachers stick to traditional teaching methods, they will be expired teachers.

“Time always moves forward, so teachers need to keep updated and follow the trends in online learning,” said Eswaran who has been using Frog VLE since last year to prepare and assign revision material and homework, conduct assessments, host competitions and more.

“Using the app in our school has got students looking forward to learning.

“After lessons, they are always ready to answer quizzes online, while previously, when exercises were on paper, they had lots of excuses, such as forgetting to bring stationery or their books,” he said.

He observed that gamification in education was able to motivate students to be more engaged and excited in online learning.

Attendance for classes and activities has improved since the implementation of e-learning amid the MCO, said Eswaran.

Meanwhile, a parent of a Year Six pupil in Eswaran’s school said she has full confidence in online learning.

The parent, who wanted to be known as Komala, said parents have been asked to log onto the platform everyday to complete quizzes of various subjects.

“My son Suresh enjoys the app a lot and is very motivated by the competitions. He often asks to use my phone to go online and complete the quizzes.

“I am assured that he isn’t doing anything else online, especially as I can check the quizzes he has completed and see which Boost sites have been opened recently,” she said.

She added that gamified and online learning for children who dislike traditional methods of learning is effective.

Suresh used to avoid reading, studying, doing exercises and he would give lots of excuses.

“Now, he doesn’t even hesitate when I ask him to go online to do his revision.

“He has also improved across all subjects after learning online over a period of time.

“With the app quizzes, he is much better at his multiplication tables and can now answer confidently,” she said.

Komala advised parents to spend some time with their children while they attend online lessons.

“I think parents who are still not supportive of e-learning haven’t even seen it or tried it themselves together with their children.”

The YTL Foundation is calling on teachers to nominate children from B40 families to receive free mobile phones and data under its ‘Learn from Home’ initiative at www.ytlfoundation.org/learn.

Each mobile phone comes with a prepaid YES 4G SIM card and a 12-month data plan with 120GB of data in total.

This is in addition to the free YES 4G SIM cards with 40GB of data and free learning resources that has been made available to national school students from March 25.

Among the applicants that stood out was a single mother living in a fishing village in Labuan.

She had sent a photograph of her three children holding their father’s death certificate (pic) along with her application as she was unsure if her children were entitled to the free SIM cards since her husband had passed away.

Like many others in her village, she had recently lost her job due to the MCO.

“This is the story of not just one family. It is the story of many Malaysian families who are largely unseen, who struggle to make ends meet and who are hardest hit during this Covid-19 crisis.

“However, despite their circumstances, their children’s education is a priority,” the foundation said in a press release.

YAYASAN YTL dengan kerjasama YTL Communications menawarkan telefon pintar percuma kepada pelajar sekolah kerajaan dari keluarga B40 yang tidak memiliki telefon pintar atau peranti mudah alih bagi sesi pembelajaran di rumah.

Inisiatif belajar dari rumah itu sebagai tambahan kepada kad SIM YES 4G dilengkapi dengan data 40 GB selain sumber pembelajaran yang turut diberikan kepada pelajar sekolah terbabit.

Setiap telefon pintar terbabit akan dilengkapi dengan kad SIM prabayar YES 4G dan pelan data sebanyak 120 GB bagi tempoh setahun.

Dalam satu kenyataan dikeluarkan hari ini, Yayasan YTL memohon kerjasama guru sekolah terbabit tampil membantu memberikan nama pelajar yang layak bagi memastikan telefon pintar itu dapat diserahkan kepada keluarga memerlukan.

“Guru adalah barisan terbaik bagi mengenal pasti keluarga ini.

“Guru memainkan peranan penting dalam usaha membantu pelajar dalam kelas selain kerap meluangkan masa, tenaga dan ilmu bagi membantu pelajar mereka.

“Selain itu, guru dan ibu bapa juga harus bekerjasama rapat bagi membolehkan pelajar dapat meneruskan sesi pembelajaran dari rumah dengan baik tanpa sebarang gangguan,” katanya.

Menurutnya, sejak dilancarkan dua minggu lalu, pekerja YTL Communications bekerja sepanjang masa bagi menguruskan permohonan mendapatkan kad SIM YES 4G percuma itu.

“Yayasan YTL amat memahami kesukaran dilalui kebanyakan keluarga di Malaysia terutama mereka dari golongan B40 ketika dunia dan negara kita sedang menghadapi ujian berat berikutan penularan wabak Covid-19.

“Ada yang terpaksa bertungkus-lumus demi mencari sesuap nasi, namun dalam apa jua cabaran yang dihadapi, YTL Foundation tetap nekad membantu pendidikan generasi muda terutama kepada mereka yang memerlukan.

“Ketika memproses permohonan berkenaan, YTL Communications tertarik dengan satu permohonan seorang ibu tunggal di sebuah perkampungan nelayan di Labuan, Sabah yang disertai dengan sekeping gambar tiga anak kecil sedang memegang sijil kematian ayah mereka.

“Gambar itu disertakan dalam borang permohonan ibu tunggal ini kerana dia tidak pasti jika anak-anaknya layak menerima kad SIM yang ditawarkan kerana suaminya meninggal dunia.

“Apa yang menyayat hati, dia kehilangan kerja baru-baru ini disebabkan Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan (PKP) dan atas dasar prihatin dan tanggungjawab sosial korporat, Yayasan YTL memberikan sebuah telefon pintar dengan kad SIM percuma seperti yang dipohon,” katanya.

Bekas guru dan isteri kepada Pemegang Amanah Yayasan YTL Tan Sri Aris Othman, Puan Sri Sherina Aris berkata, guru adalah yang terbaik untuk menilai keperluan pelajar di dalam kelas mereka.

“Saya membesar dalam keluarga yang sangat miskin dan guru sayalah yang membantu saya menamatkan pengajian.

“Saya mengalami anemia akibat kekurangan nutrisi dan guru sayalah yang menyedari perkara ini dan menghantar saya berjumpa doktor serta mencari penaja yuran persekolahan saya.

“Guru lain turut sama menyumbang bagi memastikan saya mendapat nutrisi harian yang mencukupi.

“Sebagai bekas guru dan seorang yang pernah mengalami sendiri kebaikan yang dicurahkan guru, saya yakin anda boleh percaya bahawa guru sentiasa mengutamakan kesejahteraan pelajar mereka,” katanya.

Sementara itu, Pengerusi Yayasan YTL Tan Sri Francis Yeoh Sock Ping berkata, ibunya juga adalah seorang guru.

“Kami membesar dengan melihat betapa dedikasinya ibu saya terhadap pelajarnya.

“Ibu akan mengadakan kelas tambahan untuk pelajar lemah mata pelajaran setiap hari selepas waktu persekolahan, namun kelas tambahan tidak akan bermula selagi pelajar tidak diberikan makanan terlebih dulu kerana dia tahu ramai antara mereka tidak mampu untuk mendapatkan bekalan makan tengah hari yang baik.

"Kami menghormati semua guru dan kami percaya mereka dapat membantu kami bagi mengenal pasti pelajar yang paling memerlukan untuk menerima tawaran percuma ini," katanya.

Guru boleh mencalonkan nama pelajar yang layak menerima telefon pintar di www.ytlfoundation.org/learn manakala pelajar yang berjaya akan dimaklumkan dan perlu mengemukakan pendaftaran mereka bagi membolehkan menerima telefon pintar dilengkapi pelan data 12 bulan YES 4G percuma.

以提供完整的网络数据、学习资源和设备

(吉隆坡 4 ⽉ 7 ⽇讯)杨忠礼基⾦会(YTL Foundation)居家学习计划将赠送免费⼿机给属于 B40 群体家庭的学⽣。这是在送出包含 40GB ⺴络数据流量的 YES 4G SIM 卡,以及开放免费学习资源给国⽴中⼩学⽣之后,所新增的公益项⺫。

杨忠礼基⾦会与杨忠礼通讯(YTL Communications)携⼿合作,免费赠送⼿机给没有智能⼿机或智能设备的 B40 低收⼊家庭,条件是这些家庭中必须有⼩孩在国⽴中⼩学上学每部智能⼿机将配备⼀张预付
YES 4G SIM 卡,以及为期 12 个⽉的 120GB ⺴络数据流量配套。

为了确保免费⼿机能送达需要的家庭,杨忠礼基⾦会呼吁国⽴中⼩学教师提交推荐名单,因为教师是评估学⽣家境的最佳⼈选。教师是协助学⽣的前线⼈员,他们经常奉献⾃⼰的时间和资源来帮助学⽣。如果要结合学⽣居家学习及在校学习的体验,那么教师也是⽗⺟的好帮⼿。

⾃从在两周前推出此项⺫以后,杨忠礼通讯公司的⼯作⼈员便⽇以继夜地⼯作,以尽快处理免费 YES
4G SIM 卡的申请事宜。在处理申请表格时,⼀封来⾃纳闽渔村单亲⺟亲的申请表格吸引了他们的⺫光
。申请表格附上了⼀张三个⼩孩的合照,照⽚中的⼀位男孩和两位⼥孩⼿握着⽗亲的死亡证明。孩⼦们的⺟亲把照⽚连同申请表格⼀起寄来是因为她不确定丈夫去世后,她的孩⼦是否有资格获得免费 SIM 卡。她和村⾥的⼈⼀样,在⾏动管制令期间失业。杨忠礼基⾦会⾮常同情她的遭遇,因此决定免费送她⼀部⼿机和 SIM 卡。

这不仅仅是⼀个家庭的故事,也是许许多多⻢来⻄亚家庭不为⼈知的现实写照,他们在逆境中挣扎求存,也在这波新冠肺炎疫情中遭受沉重打击。尽管如此,再穷也不能穷教育,他们依然将⼦⼥的教育放在第⼀位。

杨忠礼基⾦会信托⼈丹斯⾥ Aris Othman 的妻⼦潘斯⾥ Sherina Aris 曾在学校执教。她说:“我完全
同意由⽼师来评估班上学⽣的家境情况。我在⼀个贫困家庭⻓⼤,是我的⽼师助我完成学业。由于我缺乏营养⽽造成贫⾎问题,有⼀位⽼师发现了我的问题,他把我送到诊所,也找到善⼼⼈⼠赞助我的学费
。其他⽼师则从旁协助,确保我每天能获得⾜够的营养。作为⼀名曾经执教的⽼师以及受过教师恩情的
⼈, 我绝对相信⽼师照顾学⽣福祉的能⼒。”

杨忠礼基⾦会主席丹斯⾥杨肃斌说:“我的⺟亲是⼀名教师,我们从⼩就⺫睹她对学⽣⽆私奉献的⾏为。她每天在课后都会给家境不太理想的学⽣补习,甚⾄请他们吃饭,因为她知道这些学⽣⽆法吃上⼀顿像样的午餐。我们要向所有教师致敬,也相信他们会协助我们,确保家境清寒的学⽣能获得⼀部免费⼿机。”

欢迎⽼师们登⼊ www.ytlfoundation.org/learn,推荐可以获得免费⼿机的学⽣。获选的学⽣将收到通知,并需要填写⼀份表格,以获取免费⼿机及为期 12 个⽉的 YES 4G ⺴络数据配套。

⾃这项计划启动以来,FrogAsia 已在 FrogPlay ⼿机应⽤程式添加了数千道测验题。此外,Teach For Malaysia 也加⼊ FrogAsia 的⾏列,负责策划国⼩和国中的英语、科学和数学课程。欢迎浏览 www.ytlfoundation.org/learn ,以获取这些学习资源及申请免费的预付 YES 4G SIM 卡。
