The Malaysian “Smart School” concept, launched in 1999, aims help transform Malaysia’s economic activities from being based on natural resources to knowledge. It started with a pilot program involving 88 schools, building up technology infrastructure and training teachers. It is currently in the fourth stage of the roadmap (2010-2020) where technology becomes an integral part of learning process with strong focus on outcome driven activities.
