SJK(C) Choong Wen launches Malaysia's very first Chrome Lab

Yes 4G together with Eduspec, launched Malaysia’s very first Chrome Lab at SJK(C) Choong Wen yesterday!

The Chrome Lab, jointly built by the school's Parent Teacher’s Association (Persatuan Ibubapa dan Guru or PIBG) as well as the School Board, had been furnished by EduSpec and is fully equipped with Yes 4G Chromebook units and a Chrome Cart, donated by YTL Communications Sdn Bhd (YTL Comms). The Lab is also powered by Yes 4G mobile Internet. We're really excited because the future of education is happening now, and we're part of it! 

The ceremony began with a spectacular 24 Season Drum Performance by the students of SJK(C) Choong Wen which was really impressive. It got everyone excited for the next thing on the agenda. We heard inspiring speeches by the visionaries themselves, the President of the School’s Board of Directors, Mr. Ong Kiam Sim, the CEO of Eduspec Holdings Bhd, Mr. Lim Een Hong, the Executive Chairman of YTL Corporation Berhad, Tan Sri Dato’ Seri (Dr) Yeoh Tiong Lay, and the Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Education, YB Datuk Ir. Dr. Wee Ka Siong. 

Students who were dressed in attractive green Frog suits performed a dance that had a Chromebook descending from the ceiling of the stage as a firework display lit the entire scene, symbolising the dawn of a new era for education in Malaysian schools. Everyone was excited and eager to see just how launching of this Chrome Lab and its Yes 4G Chromebooks would impact the education experience in a school like this.

VIPs and guests were treated to a personal tour of the Chrome Lab by SJK(C) Choong Wen's enthusiastic Frog Champion Students who conducted the tour excellently. They gave everyone an impressive demonstration of how the Frog VLE is used on their Chromebooks. We were really encouraged to see how these students have truly taken ownership of the Frog VLE at their school and how they understand what it means to bring education to the next level with technology today.

YB Datuk Ir. Dr. Wee Ka Siong addresses the age of the Digital School 2.0 in Malaysia where education goes further with cloud computing, portable Chromebooks  that turn every classroom into a computer lab, video conferencing between schools in different countries, and enhanced learning on the Frog VLE.
