IT firm to help Malaysians in learning from home

The Malaysia arm of an American multinational information technology company recently announced the #iMovewithHP campaign, which is designed to inspire Malaysians to stay positive and create meaningful connections during these unprecedented times.

The campaign seeks to bring Malaysians together to give back to the community and help students who are unable to continue learning from home.

In collaboration with popular Malaysian personalities, this Instagram-based campaign aims to inspire fellow Malaysians to come together to be creative with technology while supporting the local community in learning and working from home.

To kick things off, the firm has pledged to donate 50 units of their 14 laptops in support of Teach For Malaysia’s (TFM) efforts to make learning from home possible for everyone.

The campaign was brought to life to support communities who lack access to the technology that is vital in continuing our education and work.

As consumers keep working, keep learning and keep going from home, the aims if for Malaysians to play a part in reaching out to help the local community by improving access to education in the new normal.

As a nation, the firm aims to support the future of Malaysia together, it’s Managing Director stated.

As an independent, non-profit organisation, Teach For Malaysia (TFM) is on a mission to give all Malaysian children the opportunity to attain an excellent education.

TFM will identify schools in the Klang Valley that have a high population of underprivileged students and work with the school management to nominate families to receive the 14 laptops.

The collaboration between HP Malaysia and TFM was born from the combined drive to ensure vulnerable communities can adapt to the changing education landscape.

A recent survey of students from 670,000 households found that only 6 per cent have access to a personal computer, and as many as 40 per cents of students don’t own a device for e-learning. As such, TFM will ramp up its work to ensure that students with the least resources are not left behind.

The #iMovewithHP campaign will see each content creator launch their own social media challenges in line with their passions.

These challenges will encourage their followers to learn a skill set and to share their newly acquired skill on social media tagging #iMovewithHP.

This combined community effort will go on to help the less fortunate, with the firm donating one extra laptop to TFM for every 50 submissions received. The laptops will then be distributed to underprivileged students in the B40 community.

According to another article, the country’s Education Minister, in a press conference on 15 April, acknowledged that some students may find it difficult to embrace online learning with video conferencing services like Zoom or Microsoft Teams.

He described the ability of most students to adapt to e-learning as somewhat limited.

In a guideline for teachers to help students during MCO, the government has asked them to consider constraints that they as well as parents may be facing in terms of choosing the best method for home-based learning.

Some students don’t have access to high-speed Internet or stable connection. As an example, they may end up taking a long time just to load one webpage.
