Bosch establishes first 21st Century Learning Space for Sekolah Kebangsaan Taman Senangan Penang
Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) for students
Penang, Malaysia – Bosch and Primavera have established a 21st Century Learning Space in Penang for Sekolah Kebangsaan Taman Senangan (SKTS). Aiming to increase education standards for students by way of incorporating interactivity and connectivity through the internet via Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), SKTS is the first national primary school in Penang to have this facility.
The launch of the 21st Century Learning Space was officiated by Dato’ Haji Osman Hussain, State Education Director of the Penang State Education Department and Mr. Manfred Baden, President of Bosch Car Multimedia; in presence of Mr. Ramlee Abu Bakar, Headmaster of SKTS, Dr. Harald Dirsch, Commercial Managing Director of Bosch Car Multimedia Penang and Mr. Lothar Mergili, Technical Managing Director of Bosch Car Multimedia Penang.
RM 80,000 was channeled into renovating and equipping the classroom with VLE facilities and equipment. Holding an ideal capacity of 20 students per session, the classroom is equipped with 20 computer tablets, projection systems, 4G internet access and other VLE teaching tools.
Dato’ Haji Osman Hussain said, “Bosch’s contribution in the 21st Century Learning Space is in line with the Malaysian Education Blueprint 2013-2025, where the Ministry of Education Malaysia plans to leverage Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to scale up the quality of learning across the country”.
“On behalf of the state education department, we are truly grateful for the 21st Century Learning Space as this greatly aids us in supporting the ministry’s goal and solidifying the school’s motto, “Knowledge is the Foundation for Success”, he added.
Speaking at the event, Mr. Baden, President of Bosch Car Multimedia said, “The assumption of responsibility for the society, especially education has been a long tradition at Bosch. We applaud the school’s visionary objective in striving to increase education standards of their students. It is our hope that the students gain ICT skills and knowledge tremendously through this 21st Century Learning Space and Bosch is pleased to assist in a small way”.
The launch of SKTS’s 21st Century Learning Space was also held in conjunction with Primavera’s 25th anniversary. Established since 1990, Primavera was formed by 10 Bosch associates in Germany, with the aim to support children of various projects in both developing and emerging countries. Since its inception, Primavera’s initiatives have grown to 30 projects worldwide, through the support of Bosch associates all around the world. Prior to the establishment of the 21st Century Learning Space, in Malaysia, Primavera in partnership with Bosch Malaysia supported the Montfort Boys Town (MBT) in Shah Alam, Selangor where Bosch has set up training base and donated automotive equipment to boost automotive skills and know-hows for both students and lecturers in the area of diesel technology.
