GEORGETOWN: In the spirit of promoting 21st century education, Sharp Electronics (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd (Sharp) recently hosted Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Minister of Education, Dr Maszlee Malik at its smart interactive classroom in Penang.

“Sharp’s smart education solutions comprising interactive whiteboards and engaging education content allow educators to present lessons in an engaging way to help improve retention and interest among students. This approach caters to a wide range of learning styles be it visual, auditory, reading, writing, or kinesthetic.

“Our smart technology is poised to upgrade classrooms from traditional blackboards to dust-free screens that present multiple functions for teaching and learning when paired with user-friendly teaching applications. These functions include quick answering, work comparing, screen broadcasting, and brain storming, among others. The result is a highly engaged classroom where students play a more active role in taking ownership of their lessons and the overall learning process,” said Sharp managing director, Robert Wu.

Tun Dr Mahathir shared a light moment listening to the chatter of young students at Sharp’s Smart Interactive Classroom. At the same time, Dr Maszlee witnessed a young group of tech-savvy preschoolers interact with an artificial intelligent educational robot at Sharp’s Smart Kindergarten area. The designated smart education areas showcased Sharp’s dedication to champion 21st century learning.
