MOE to improve teacher competencies in guiding students’ use of AI

KANGAR, May 24 — The Education Ministry aims to improve teacher competencies with suitable training to ensure they can effectively guide students in using artificial intelligence (AI).

Minister Fadhlina Sidek said this after the introduction of the Digital Education Policy, adding that feedback indicated students in the country have significant capabilities, especially in AI innovation.

“Our students demonstrate notable proficiency in AI, emphasising the need for competent teachers to guide them.

“As such, we shall prioritise enhancing the competency and training of our educators, particularly in AI,” she told reporters after visiting SMKA (P) Al-Alawiyah at Persiaran Jubli Emas here today.

Fadhlina said students in rural areas could be integrated into the digital community, strengthening their proficiency in AI technology, and added that MOE initiatives such as teacher activity centres and the Digital Educational Learning Initiative Malaysia platform would facilitate this effort.

She said schools should fully utilise the platform as the primary medium for students to enhance their digital capabilities and innovation.
