MiSC is an integral part of MOE’s efforts in providing relevant, inspiring, and outcomes-focused education resources to students and teachers. To achieve these objectives, MOE has integrated and implemented several key aspects of digital learning, education, and digital media best practices into MiSC.
FutureGov was present to witness the opening ceremony by Minister of Education Yang Berhormat Pehin Orang Kaya Seri Kerna Dato Seri Setia Haji Awang Abu Bakar bin Haji Apong, together with various government ministries, all MOE department heads, teachers, school leaders, students, and MiSC international partners.
As student’s and parent’s lives become increasingly digital, MOE is focusing its efforts on transforming itself and aligning with national stakeholders to serve this and subsequent digital generations.
Yang Berhomat Pehin Abu Bakar stressed that “a key focus of MiSC is to holistically and carefully implement digital learning on the basis of our values and impact to student outcomes, without rushing into the fads and frenzy of gadgets and apps”. He added that “with MiSC, we will place greater focus and emphasis on creativity and innovation in preparing our teachers, amending policies, and enhancing our curriculum rather than on rushing to procure devices and gadgets”.
While the MiSC facility is well designed to embody creativity and innovation, MiSC is a complex undertaking that integrates new MOE digital learning processes, provides MOE officers with training and development in designing effective digital materials, establishes global industry partnerships, and houses state-of-the-art digital learning design, development, and management technology. In addition, MiSC provides a dedicated space called the Learning Lab exclusively for teacher professional development.
“We have observed best practices, the painful lessons of other countries, and applied our own lessons by ensuring that MiSC has mechanisms to keep Brunei’s education ahead of the rapidly changing digital and ICT landscape. In this way, we can prepare our teachers and infrastructure better, well ahead of the innovation curve, and serve our student’s needs more effectively,” said Haji Adbul Rahim bin Derus, Director of the Department of ICT and Chief Information Officer of MOE.
“MiSC will balance national education objectives focused on inculcating local values and traditions for social development with the training of hard industry skills for employability and industry development,” said Samir Patel, Principal Consultant & Project Manager of globalSOF Holdings, a key partner in the e-Hijrah programme.
