If you recall, early this year Cempaka International School students won an International Mathematics Contest organized by Unicef and 3P Learning Centre of Australia in conjunction with the recent World Maths Day.
Datin Freida Pilus, Cempaka Schools chairman, said students should be embracing technology because this opens up more ways of learning.
Two years ago, Cempaka introduced Macbooks — portable Apple computers — to its secondary school students.
And now, their forward-looking, innovative education system is introducing another first in education. They are giving away cell phones, the iPhone 3GS, to be exact, to their students. One hundred students of the soon-to-be-opened Cempaka International Ladies College (Clic) are getting an iPhone 3GS each for free.
Students would be introduced to a series of iPhone applications that would be used in their everyday classroom curriculum.
