In 1999, the Smart School Flagship Application was introduced as part of the MSC Blueprint. In order to realign our country’s education system and to make our students lifelong, self-paced and self-directed learners, the Malaysian Smart Schools were introduced. 88 schools were selected to form a nucleus.

The pilot project test-bedded the Smart School Integrated Solution, which comprised the following components:

-Browser-based teaching-learning materials (and related print materials) for Bahasa Melayu, English language, Science and Mathematics;

-Computerised Smart School Management system;

-Smart School technology infrastructure involving the use of IT and non-IT equipment, Local Area Networks for the pilot schools, and a virtual private network that connects the pilot schools; and

-Support services in the form of a centralised Help Desk, and country-wide service centres to provide maintenance and support.

The project ended in December 2002, with the 88 networked schools throughout the country, 1494 courseware titles for Bahasa Melayu, English language, Science, Mathematics, a computerised and integrated Smart School Management System, a Help Desk, and a Data Centre, and trained administrators, teachers and IT coordinators from all the pilot schools.

By 2010, the project is to be extended to all 9000 schools in the country under the Smart School Integrated Solution (SSIS).

Almost everyone will agree that this is an ambitious plan. And most probably this plan might see some hiccups and delays.

However the die has been cast. The whole world is moving towards ICT and for us not to prepare our children for this world would send our country to the dark ages.

Coming back to the practice of preparing our children for life, how many parents are aware of these changes taking place in our school system? And how many are taking proactive steps to prepare their children.

“The SMART School concept calls for browser-based teaching-learning materials (and related print materials) for Bahasa Melayu, English language, Science and Mathematics. No more books. Everything is online. The reference materials, the questions, the answers, the markings and the gradings. “

Well, SCORE A is well ahead of the pack. This is exactly what it provides. A word by word compliance with the definition of the SMART School.

SCORE A provides an excellent opportunity for parents to give their children a head start. Not only in the school exam system, but also in life!

My son is sitting for his PMR this year. Though he is a very smart boy, his school grades have not been something to be proud of. I blame myself partly for this, as I have not spent or invested the time with him in going through his studies when he was much younger.

 

I suspect this is a problem faced by many parents today. The pressures of working life, the long hours, the commuting stress all builds up upon us. When our children most need us, it is so much easier for us to just send them to tuition classes and hope that everything will be sorted out.

 

This was the path we took for our two elder girls. By the grace of God, they have now graduated and have started their working careers.

 

I am lucky that I have been given a second chance with my younger three children, of whom our son is the eldest.

 

Last October my wife was introduced to Score A by one of her friends. I was not too enthusiastic about it, but our youngest daughter started using it and did much better in school despite a very short time of use. This got me interested and I have committed myself to work together with my son to better his grades.

 

I am a strong believer that every child has his or her switch. A switch if turned on properly and at the right time, will result in a 180% change in their behaviour patterns. I have written about this in one of my other blogs.

 

My son, like almost every other teen his age prefers computer games to his school books anyday. He is very esourceful when it comes to the games. He is able to get help, motivated to score better in his games and is willing to spend long hours in improving his game. Now if we could only redirect this motivation to his studies.

 

This is exactly what Score A has allowed me to do.

 

I have a deal with him. I shall not yell at him when he plays his games, provided he finishes his work as agreed with him.

 

Daily he answers 1 set of eAssessments which comprise of Set 1 ( 15 questions), Set 2 (20 questions) and Set 3 (60 questions), making a total of 65 questions per subject.

 

And he does this for Science, English, Mathematics, Geography and History, making a total of 390 questions a day.

 

This is what is meant by Output Learning……… similar to the practice makes perfect theory.

 

He can do this as Score A is an online portal with online eNotes available at a click of a mouse. The questions come one just like a video game, he answers them and they are instantly marked.

 

And his mother and I can review what he has done for the day equally easily. 

 

The questions come in all forms of twists and turns, allowing him to respond, make mistakes, learn from his mistakes and better himself the next attempt.

 

My son and I have drawn up a timetable up to his PMR date scheduled for early October 09.

 

Insya’Allah by then, he would have covered several thousands of questions. There have been sometimes when there is some resistance and his mind is more on the video games. Still, as I said, he is a very smart boy and he can see that the setting has been made most convenient for him. So he does his part and finishes his work.

After all he can still play the games after he has finished his work!

All of us must have heard about the term “Seeing is believing.” This school of thought says that till we see something with our own eyes, then we should not believe it.

Well, how many of us have seen a dead rhino, or an elephant giving birth, or an eagle laying an egg? Yet, we all agree that these things are true.

What about the case of a spectacular show that a friend recommends us to see? Should we see it first to believe? Or do we trust our friend and see the show based on his recommendation. The more cynical amongst is insist that “seeing is believing”, though they too, will believe that eagles lay eggs, and rhinos die.

In business, many decisions are made on the basis of forecasts and projections. Banks insist that we should provide our projections and business plans. Things which are based on the future and currently unseen. Though our present status plays a huge part in lending credibility to our projections, they are still projections.

Recently I read a statement by Encik Idris Jala, the MD of Malaysian Airlines. He quoted a saying from one of his favourite books,

“When we truly want something, the universe conspires to help us achieve it”.

This statement perhaps, sums up the essence of “believing to see”. When we truly want something and truly believe that we can get it, then we “get help” from sources that we cannot see. And we end up getting what we want.

This is also the theory behind the art of mediation and passing messages to our brains when we are in an alpha state.

 Change ourselves by changing the way we think!

Change ourselves by changing what we believe!

In the Direct Marketing industry, the statement “believe to see” is often repeated. It is a manner of motivating the recruits that they should visualise the successful growth of their respective businesses.

I have a very healthy respect for the “believe to see” approach. I strongly believe that the undertaking that I have embarked upon has all the ingredients of a wildly successful business.

I have to believe! And I have to work hard! Insya’Allah, success should be mine!

In the meantime, to those of you who are interested, I do have an opportunity that may make a lot of business sense to you. It does to me. It’s an exciting business opportunity for Malaysians. It’s a great way to earn part time income, until it overtakes your full time income. Then you can build it into a passive income source.

It’s SCORE A, an online educational portal that now allows everyone to score in their exams!!! Read about some of the characteristics of the product here.

My introduction to Output Learning started when I signed up for the Score A Program for my 3 school going children.

 

I have long known that the Malaysian school system left a lot to be desired in imparting knowledge to the kids. We tried tuition but that did not seem to be of much help. Further my wife or I did not have the skills or the time to home school my kids.

 

I remembered the study group we had formed when I was doing my MICPA exams. It helped a lot. Basically a group of us got together and attempted to answer the past year questions. Collectively we had the knowledge to be able to answer all the questions.

 

When I found out about Score A it seemed perfect!

 

Input Learning is primarily what my children get in school. The teachers teach and the text books are read. Both of which are input. However not all children are wired the same way. Whilst some may absorb this method of learning, others falter.

 

Output Learning is where the children learn by practice. Through constant practice they get to understand what they have learned.

 

The key facts that got me hooked on Score A are these:-

 

a)    The children learn online. There has been enough written about the lack of reading. However the kids seem more receptive to online stuff. They know how to use the “Help” function to get over problems.

 

b)    There are thousands and thousands of questions. Hence my children will be exposed to all kinds of questions the examiners can think of. This is unlike “spotting”, where a great element of luck is involved.

 

c)     There are online resources to refer to. For any one topic, say Fractions in Mathematics, my son can click on ENotes and be able to read specially prepared notes on this Topic.

 

d)    The questions are instantly marked and the results known. This helps my children as they immediately know where they stand and there is a inner motivation to do better. As their parent, my wife and I also have access to their results, so we can track their progress.

 

e)    Past Year Questions. I remember the trouble we had to go through trying to track down the past year questions for my elder girls to practice on. Score A solves this by providing online the past year questions for PMR and UPSR from 1993 to now.

 

f)      Time Management. This is something the children may be lacking in. Being able to answer the questions is one thing. Doing so within the time allowed is another. Score A has a timer that allows the children to know where they stand and they are timed out if they exceed the time allotted.

 

 

I have been told by some people that Output Learning may not help in full comprehension and understanding. I feel that constant practice should help in this endeavour.

 

Of course, no system can work without the parents monitoring closely. With my children, I have a time table in place. Yes, there is a little of the yelling and such, but the work is getting done.

 

My children have not progressed to answering the past year questions yet. My son, who will be sitting for his PMR this October, should be on this by June 09, Insya’Allah.

 

So far the results are being noticed at the school tests level. He had some “C’s” in his school exams last year end. Last week, he had a string of B+’s. This is good enough progress for me.

 

Now you can see why I am a passionate promoter for the Score A Program.
