Celebrating 21st Century Teachers
Today, we recognise that teachers are no longer the gatekeepers of all knowledge, but are their students’ learning facilitators. Teachers hold the responsibility to ensure students are not only equipped with the right knowledge and skills, but are able to apply what they have learned in school in the real world. Today’s teachers shape and mould tomorrow’s leaders.
The categories for the 1BestariNet Teacher Awards 2016 best reflect the 5Cs of 21st century learning; Critical Thinking, Creativity, Communication, Collaboration and Character.
This year, the 1BestariNet Teacher Awards celebrate exceptional 21st century teachers. With each strength, these teachers motivate students to be the best they can be. Nominations can be made by students and even teachers themselves!
Who is behind the 1BestariNet Teacher Awards 2016?
FrogAsia is an education company with a passion for transforming education and empowering schools, teachers and students. In all we do, we aim to open up greater access to technology and the Internet for everyone, rural or urban, large schools or small - and bridge the digital divide in order to allow all students to thrive in today’s world. One of the ways this is done is through providing the Frog VLE which is a cloud-based learning platform, and Yes 4G connectivity to all schools in Malaysia as part of the 1BestariNet project - an initiative by the Ministry of Education.
Above and beyond the scope of the project, we want to support teachers, parents and students in this journey towards 21st century learning through encouraging teachers with the 1BestariNet Teacher Awards and other initiatives.
