A total of 2,596 teachers nationwide have participated in 22 sessions of the Malaysia ICT Volunteer (MIV) Workshop with Schools organised by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) from 2016 to 2022.
MCMC in a statement today said it held five sessions of MIV Workshops with Schools this year attended by 218 people comprising ICT coordinator teachers, special education teachers and personnel from the State Education Department.
"Besides encouraging the responsible use of ICT, the workshops expose the participants to the optimal use of ICT. The sharing session also touches on how to protect oneself from being a victim of online threats," said MCMC.
The sharing of modules such as 'Impact of ICT on Health' and 'Cyber Crime Enforcement in Malaysia' can give exposure to teachers to face the increasingly challenging misuse of ICT, said MCMC.
MIV was started as a pilot project in Sarawak in 2016 and it aims to improve digital literacy and the knowledge of teachers and students related to the use of ICT.
