With the Innovative Schools Programme (ISP), teachers are challenged to create a motivating and student-centered learning environment.  JIS has offered the ISP to more than 509 teachers and principals from 84 state elementary and state special (SLB) schools in Jakarta.

Following the success of the Innovative Schools Programme (ISP), the Jakarta Intercultural School (JIS) with Emmanuel Foundation, the Jakarta Education Agency, Mentari Intercultural School Jakarta, and member schools of the Association of National and Private Schools (ANPS) held the First Annual Educators Conference of the Innovative Schools Programme at JIS, with the theme Keep Learning Alive!JIS with Emmanuel Foundation, the Jakarta Education Agency, Mentari Intercultural School, and member schools of ANPS held the ISP’s First Annual Educators Conference with the theme Keep Learning Alive! attended by the Director General of GTK of the Ministry of Education and Culture, Supriano, M.Ed.More than 200 participants were able to take part in workshops presented by 35 teachers from JIS, partner schools and alumni ISP attended by the Director General of GTK of the Ministry of Education and Culture, Supriano, M.Ed.

This event was held on Feb. 9, 2019, to celebrate the ISP’s journey so far. “This reunion celebrates our achievements in the last nine years of implementing the ISP. Our teachers and principals are invited to attend 19 interesting and specially designed workshops for teachers,” said Greg Zolkowski, JIS Community Educational Outreach Coordinator.

Throughout the day, participants were able to take part in workshops presented by 35 teachers from JIS, partner schools and alumni ISP on topics such as Reading Together in Early Classes, Self-Organizing Skills, Reflections in the Learning Process, Learning Development Through “Pop Culture” and 21st Century Learning Strategies.

The ISP began with non-profit organization Yayasan Emmanuel in 2009 with UBS as a sponsor, with JIS joining the program in 2013.

“The ISP strengthens JIS’s commitment to improving the quality of education in Indonesia. In partnership with the Emmanuel Foundation, which was established by a JIS graduate, we want to increase the skills of teachers in Indonesia while inspiring them to continue learning and dare to try new things, so that they can have a better impact on students,” Zolkowski said.

Joshua Tanja, Country Head UBS Indonesia said, “We are delightful to collaborate with Emmanuel Foundation on the Innovative Schools Programme for nearly a decade. At UBS, we believe in talent development and the importance of nurturing future leaders. This is why we are a firm supporter of the program aims to promote best practices and learning opportunities for educators and schools in Indonesia“.

With a modern method, JIS teachers share their international knowledge about interesting teaching methods and practices with the goal of creating a learning atmosphere that will motivate students.

“The ISP method encourages teachers to involve students during the teaching-learning process by implementing an inquiry approach to increase student participation. And during class discussions, students can also get knowledge from other students. For us, knowledge is flexible and dynamic because it can be obtained from many directions,” he said.

During the ISP program, teachers from various state schools attended workshops guided by more than 50 JIS teachers in 10 meetings. Topics included class management, developing higher thinking skills, innovative teaching strategies and many more.

Upon completing the program, participants received a certificate from the Jakarta Education Agency at a graduation ceremony. This certificate provides points that can increase teachers’ salaries and prepare them for higher positions in education.

Vibrant Classrooms

To offer further support, the JIS team also visited schools to assess the ISP’s implementation.

“Usually, before teachers participated in the ISP, their classrooms were most often stark and rarely reflected students’ work. But after joining the program, their classrooms are decorated with students’ work. Classroom agreements are displayed as well, which students helped create with the teacher. Overall, student participation is higher and they are also increasingly motivated,” Zolkowski added.

At JIS, more than 509 teachers and principals from 84 state elementary and state special schools have participated in the ISP. And this year, JIS began to develop workshops catering to junior high school teachers, as well as a Training of Trainers program for ISP graduates.

Moving forward, JIS and its partners will remain committed to supporting the teachers of Jakarta with innovative and creative classroom methods to further improve Indonesia’s quality of education.

Vivo Brings Cutting-Edge Elevating Front Camera to V15Pro, Revving Up the Mobile Experience for Consumers Globally

V15 and V15Pro Key Visual
Reading Time: 4 minutes

 

Vivo today unveiled the all-new V15Pro smartphone in key markets starting in India. The V15Pro is Vivo’s first model after the NEX to incorporate the industry’s first Elevating Front Camera. It packs upgraded AI technology, bringing consumers a stunning full-screen smartphone and has the Google Assistant built-in. Vivo once again is breaking new ground by elevating the mobile experience with this latest affordable V series addition that packs in many high-end technologies that usually appear in only the most premium phones.

In addition to the Elevating Front Camera, the V15Pro includes cutting-edge technologies like its AI Triple Camera that takes pro photography on the smartphone to another level, plus In-Display Fingerprint Scanning.

“Innovation is one of our core values. Aside from the industry’s first Elevating Front Camera which gave us the ultimate bezel-less display, we are always looking to bring other game-changing features, such as higher-quality cameras and smarter AI services that transport the mobile experience to a new dimension,” said Spark Ni, Senior Vice President of Vivo. “The V15Pro is a clear example of our commitment to bringing advanced products to consumers from all around the world and from all walks of life.”

Elevating Front Camera Makes Possible Super AMOLED Ultra FullViewTM Display

Taking inspiration from the ground-breaking NEX, V15Pro carries the same Elevating Front Camera, but better. V15Pro comes with a staggering 32MP Front Camera to capture even better selfies with unrivalled clarity. Vivo has further upgraded the mechanics of the Elevating Front Camera in V15Pro. Design enhancements also ensure the camera is sturdy enough to withstand daily wear-and-tear.

The innovative Elevating Front Camera which first debuted at MWC 2018 as a concept and was featured in the first NEX has effectively created the ideal full-screen display without compromising on photo quality or camera position. With the elimination of the notch, V15Pro now has a staggering 91.64% screen-to-body ratio, creating an unprecedented immersive viewing experience for gaming and video viewing. The Super AMOLED Ultra FullView™ Display on the V15Pro now has a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, and is 6.39 inches diagonally. Its side and top bezels have been reduced to a razor-thin 1.75mm and 2.2mm respectively.

Capture the Perfect Shot with a Stunning AI Triple Camera

V15Pro comes with AI-embedded solutions that take the mobile photography experience to the next level. With an AI Triple Camera, V15Pro allows consumers to take photos with stunning clarity and a wider perspective. Users can easily capture professional-grade photos with a snap, thanks to the 48 Million Quad Pixel Sensor[1], 8MP AI Super Wide-Angle Camera, and 5MP Depth Camera. The “four-in-one pixel” technology in the main rear camera combines four pixels into one large pixel to deliver high-quality 12MP photos even in the dark. The AI Super Wide-Angle Camera can expand up to 120 degrees[2], capturing more people and fuller landscape shots.

This powerful hardware is complemented with AI to make professional photo-taking a breeze. Borrowing from V11, V15Pro is equipped with AI photography features including AI Face Beauty and AI Portrait Framing. The all-new AI Super Night Mode makes shaky night shots a thing of the past, as consumers can now capture amazing night scenery without a tripod or a DSLR camera. AI Super Night Mode can instantly take multiple photos at different exposures. It then brilliantly combines them to greatly improve brightness and clarity, meaning night scenes can now be captured with a high level of detail and stability.

With the all-new AI Body Shaping feature, users can now look naturally perfect by adjusting every aspect of the body such as the waist and legs – users will no longer need to use photo-editing applications to look their best.

In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology Brings Out the Best in Sleek Design

V15Pro also incorporates Vivo’s popular In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology, which is now in its 5th generation. With higher fingerprint pixel density and more sophisticated algorithms, it allows consumers to unlock their phones in a more secure and intuitive manner.

Without a physical fingerprint pad, the sleek back cover adopts a unique Spectrum Ripple Design in Topaz Blue or Coral Red, that reflect different shades at different angles, complementing the futuristic innovations housed within V15Pro.

AI-Powered Performance for a Smoother and more Intuitive Experience

Vivo’s AI has made another leap forward, with a more powerful Jovi, the personal assistant that understands the user’s needs and desires better than ever.

The brand-new AI-powered Jovi Image Recognizer has access to almost 100 mainstream e-commerce platforms such as Shopee and Zalora, so it can easily search through databases of over half a billion products. With a simple scan, users can now directly locate the product they need and enjoy futuristic AI shopping.

Simply use the new Smart Button on the side of V15Pro – one press activates the Google Assistant, while two calls the Jovi Image Recognizer into action. It’s easy, intuitive, and fast. With the Google Assistant, users can get things done and stay on top of their day while on-the-go, in the car or at home – using just their voice. Whether users want to activate AI Face Beauty, clean up phone memory, or search for food pictures in their album, they can just utter the command and V15Pro will do it immediately.

Avid gamers will love the upgraded Game Mode 5.0. It comes with the new Competition Mode that allocates system resources to prioritize game performance, and Dual-Turbo which reduces frame-drop by 300% and increases smooth gameplay.

V15Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 675AIE Octa-core processor with 6GB/8GM RAM + 128 ROM, ensuring ultra-smooth performance. Users can also have peace of mind that their phone will be up and running at all times thanks to Vivo’s latest Dual-Engine Fast Charging technology, which tops the V15Pro up to about a quarter of power in just 15 minutes.

Availability

V15Pro will be available in multiple markets internationally. Price and color vary by region.

The Kuala Lumpur edition of Trescon’s World Blockchain Summit will mark the global series’ entry into the Malaysian marketplace. The summit will take place on 27 – 28 February 2019, at the Intercontinental Hotel.

World Blockchain Summit is an internationally renowned series that has hosted over 15,000 delegates in over ten countries across the world, with a special focus on hosting elites from regional governments and enterprises alike.

Malaysia is one of the newest countries on the blockchain map, as the country pushed for the active legislation of blockchain based service providers. Furthermore, after initially distancing itself from Cryptocurrencies, the Malaysian Government is now looking to classify CryptoTokens and other digital currencies as tokenised assets. The Finance Ministry has also announced it hopes to completely regulate Cryptocurrencies by Q1 of the 2019 fiscal year.

Hence, the World Blockchain Summit is arriving in Kuala Lumpur at the most opportune moment as the local blockchain industry is moving towards the wide-scale adoption of ledger based services. The summit will gather over 500 technology developers, startups, entrepreneurs and solution providers at the venue to share knowledge, implementation techniques and adoption practices for blockchain solutions into diverse industries and sectors.

Regulatory body MIGHT (Malaysian Industry-Government Group for High Technology) is helping institutions and government bodies adopt blockchain services rapidly. The Ministry of Education has also setup a degree verification system via a distributed ledger. The President and CEO of MIGHT, Datuk Dr Mohd Yusoff Sulaiman, will be delivering a keynote address at the World Blockchain Summit in Kuala Lumpur.

Mohammed Saleem, CEO of Trescon, said that Malaysia is now the centre of global news after the Government, whom first opposed blockchain and cryptocurrency services, did a full 360 and is now looking to regulate them within the country. Industries like Education, Tourism, Healthcare and Public Services can benefit from the transparency and incorruptible features a distributed ledger provides”.

The event will also have startups and ICOs present at the exhibition venue, displaying their services and products to a hoard of investors, seeking the required assistance and support needed for growth.

Some other notable industry personalities and leaders attending the event include Rene Bernard, President of ACCESS — MalaysiaKohei Kurihara, President of the Tokyo Chapter — Government Blockchain Association; and Samson Lee, Founder and CEO of CoinStreet.
