DST & MOE – ICT learning


Both DST and Ministry of Education support the initiative known as “Innovative Learning through Mobile Interactive Technologies” and recently they launched a new ICT educational program at Sekolah Rendah Panaga. So what did the school receive? Well, DST contributed 35 iPad Mini tablets.

DST is no stranger to corporate social responsibility programmes and they have been very keen in promoting technology through education. Previously DST’s community relations project involved providing students in 10 schools with high-speed mobile broadband internet connectivity and laptops, for more enhanced e-learning experiences.

It is good to see the Ministry of Education having this initiative as well and using some of the schools as “Model Schools” to see the improvement in learning using technology. So let’s hope for more collaboration with other companies with MOE and also for DST to see more potential avenue for ICT learning in schools.

Even my friend recommended me to get one since my Korean car has gone passed its prime *lol* The guest of honour was Mr. Choi Byung Koo, the Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to Brunei Darussalam. Also present were Mr. T J Park, President of Kia Asia Pacific, Kia Motors Corp and Mr. Teng Chin Ying, Chairman of Grand Motors Sdn Bhd). For more updates, you can view their Facebook page.

3 on 3 awareness at Yayasan School


So the campaign continues as the H.I.T Hoop Teams visited another school and this time at Yayasan Sultan Hj Hassanal Bolkiah School which took place this morning. The guys from KFC and Fitness Zone notably Wu Chun were greeted by teachers and students. A welcoming address was given by Hjh Mariam bte Hj Ladi, the school’s principal.

Jonathan Bong, Senior Marketing Manager of KFC, talked briefly about thei intention of the upcoming KFC Fitness Zone 3 on 3 Streetball Challenge is now open for registration. The actual event will take place at The Airport Mall. For those interested to take part in the challenge, the forms are available at all Fitness Zone outlets and specific KFC outlets (Gadong Central, Airport Mall, Seria and The Mall).

The closing dates for registration is 10th March but I suggest you register early because based on my experience, you might need some time as well to make your jerseys for the tournament. This year the official jerseys will be a special one because it will be both dry fit and also reversible. Interesting!!

Diecast Exhibition this Sunday


It’s happening this Sunday. The 1st Brunei Diecast Sales and Exhibition 2013


Tracking food using RFID


It has to start somewhere and it’s good to see AITI and John Harith Technology teaming up with the help of the Ministry of Religious Affairs in having local meat being electronically traced to make sure the authenticity of the “halalness” and also inventory of the item at the supermarket, in this case, Hua Ho.

So all you have do is use your smart phone and download the QR code application and you can scan the selected items at the cold storage of Hua Ho Bunut though only the chicken items are computed to the system for RFID. Then you scan the QR code and you will be able to get details on the supplier and as well as the person who slaughtered the chicken with a halal certification to go along with it. The information will be displayed on the monitor for your viewing.

The pilot project will be run for 6 months and so far it is being tested with a local abattoir Golden Chick Sdn Bhd who are collaborating with Hua Ho Tanjung Bunut. This is a good initiative and I believe you may have heard about the recent situation where an imported food product from China beared a Halal logo only to find out it has pork DNA in it. So this is where RFID on halal status on food might come in handy in the future.

The Guests of Honour to officiate the soft launching of the system were Dato Paduka Haji Awang Alaihuddin bin Pehin Orang Kaya Digadong Seri Lela Dato Seri Utama Haji Awang Mohamad Taha, Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Communications and Awang Haji Abdul Aziz bin Orang Kaya Maharaja Lela Haji Yussof, Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Religious Affairs. Also present was Chief Executive of AITI, Hj Yahkup Hj Menudin and Deputy Permanent Secretary of Ministry of Communications, Abdul Mutalib Pehin Orang Kaya Seri Setia Hj Mohd Yusof.

The event took place at Hua Ho Tanjung Bunut.

Hj Yahkup Hj Menudin, Chief Executive of AITI gave his welcoming remarks
