Being a teacher is difficult since they must manage office tasks, educate, and barely have time to rest. Hopefully, these new systems will make it simpler for them to handle their loads.
Three online tools are being developed by the Ministry of Education (MOE) to aid in school administration and simplify teachers’ tasks.
According to Senior Education Minister, Datuk Mohd Radzi Md Jidin, the systems included the creation of school timetables, utility management, and a reporting system for teachers’ teaching and learning (PdP).
He claimed that in keeping with digitalisation, MOE should seize the chance to enhance resource efficiency and management systems, as well as change the educational methodology of the nation to make it more appealing.
For the utility management system, we are already in the final stage and some prototypes have been completed. There are more improvements to be made and we hope the system can be used this year.
As for the school timetable system, we find that some schools do it manually and some schools buy the system from external vendors. Hence, we are developing the system for schools nationwide and hope it can be used as soon as possible.Ministry of Education, Senior Education Minister, Datuk Mohd Radzi Md Jidin
In order to ensure that the system satisfies the requirements to organise student schedules, he further said that the system is now working with stakeholders, including school management.
In contrast, he claimed in his address that, in line with the advancement of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (IR 4.0), digital education was no longer an option but rather a need, in addition to developing generations and students who are proficient in the use of technology.
We want to produce students who are digitally fluent and able to compete according to current needs. Through digitalisation we are able to improve educational pedagogy.
Digitally-skilled teachers are able to produce more interesting educational pedagogical approaches in line with the development of IR 4.0.Ministry of Education, Senior Education Minister, Datuk Mohd Radzi Md Jidin
