The concept of digital innovation is closely related to technology and this brought to the make use of technology such as smartphones for the students to keep up with their learning.
Children from the B40 income groups, especially from families with several children, may require financial support in acquiring digital technology while monthly internet subscription might be pricey to the family.
Sekolah Kebangsaan (SK) Luagan, Lawas a rural school serving a B40 population, will compete in T4 Education’s USD250,000 (1.1 million) World’s Best School Prizes in the Innovation category.
SK Luagan experienced as a finalist among five (5) schools in Malaysia in running the T4 Education’s competition and this shows that rural population also have opportunities to keep on track with the latest update in this digital era.
This is because SK Luagan is using film production to solve the issue of school closure during the flood in the area of SK Luagan.
Other than that, SK Luagan’s students are required to spend on a getaway as a way to engage in home-based learning and teaching (PdPR) due to the shortage of internet availability in Lawas.
Thus, the school implements a teaching strategy known as the “flipped classroom”, in which students are given study materials like books or videos.
