SMPK Setapak Uses Frog for the Visually Impaired: Part 1 of 2

Sekolah Menengah Pendidikan Khas Setapak is a school for the visually impaired. Among the 140 students that are currently enrolled in the school, the range of visual impairment ranges from partial to full blindness. SMPK Setapak's school staff consists of teachers who are both fully sighted as well as those who have varying degrees of visual impairment.

In 2012, two teachers who had attended a Frog Admin training held by the Ministry of Education (Bahagian Teknologi Pendidikan), took the initiative to implement Frog in their school even without having any further guidance as they are not listed as a Frog Champion School.

When we heard the news, we headed over for a visit to find out how a school like theirs used Frog and what motivated them to do so. Watch this video to find out more about this school as told by the School Principal, Encik Jalaluddin Yusof.

We are very encouraged just by how much effort these teachers put into giving the best education to their students who have special needs,  on a daily basis. Stay tuned to find out how they use the Frog VLE for teaching and learning purposes in the follow-up story next week!
