The Ministry of Education has launched a home learning video competition today aimed at primary and secondary school students.
Minister, Rosy Akbar says this is part of ongoing efforts to make the home learning experience a more engaging one for students and motivate them.
The competition, which is open to students from Years 1 to 13, requires producing a creative short video of up to 90 seconds, showing the interesting and innovative ways in which students are continuing their educational journey during the pandemic.
Students can participate individually, or with their siblings, and are encouraged to express themselves in a form they feel best suits their ability through dance, drama, role play, poetry recital, mock interview concepts, show and tell, or any other form of creative expression.
Akbar says those students who may have connectivity issues can contact their nearest school and seek assistance from the teachers. She says teachers will assist in uploading the videos on the Ministry’s Home Learning Facebook Page.
Akbar says videos do not have to be limited to formal home learning such as working on the provided educational worksheets and they welcome seeing other more informal education that students are engaging in while at home.
There are two categories - one for primary school students and the other for secondary school students, with three prizes for each category, including 24 Home Learning Packages, which contains a tablet with 250GB of data and stationery.
Winners will be picked from each major division.
