With the recent announcement by Malaysian Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, of extending the Movement Control Order (MCO) till 14th April 2020, more Malaysians are trying to find activities to fill in their time. Fortunately, Digi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd (Digi) is offering Malaysians access to fun and quality learning activities to keep families occupied during the your stay home period.
All you need is to get EasyAdd through MyDigi Subscriptions where multiple exciting edutainment apps and services are currently offered with special discounts or free trials. But if you aren’t a Digi subscriber, afraid not as you are also able to access and subscribe to any of these services via www.easyadd.my.
I’m interested. So what are the edutainment apps and services I should look forward?
There are many things that EasyAdd could offer but for this article, I’m going to list down 7 things you should look out for:
To ensure that children are not left behind in their studies, try JomStudi (https://www.jomstudi.my/), a digital learning hub developed to provide students with educational content that they can easily access anytime and anywhere. The educational content, which includes those from Astro Tutor TV and Media Prima’s FullAMark, complies with the syllabus prescribed by the Malaysian Ministry of Education (MOE) for Year 5, UPSR, PT3 and SPM and gamifies the study process by allowing students a chance to collect e-badges as rewards for completing their assignments.
As an added incentive for students and parents, Digi is offering free 24/7 data access for all Digi customers for any JomStudi content browsed throughout the MCO.
Classruum is a virtual classroom that enables students to learn from certified teachers and tailor their own lesson plan using study materials that comply with the MOE syllabus. Consisting of core subjects for UPSR, Form 1, PT3 and Form 5 levels, tutorials are broken into lesson plans, practice and summary to enable students to understand the subjects and practice at their own pace. Students have online access to video tutorials, study notes, assessments and even interactive games.
Digi customers can enjoy a limited RM1 offer to access certain Classruum subjects for one month via MyDigi Subscriptions.
3. Me Books
If you’re looking for a great way to bond with your kids, Me Books is an interactive storytime experience which contains over 300 children’s audio books. The quality storytime experience targeted at children aged between two to nine years consists of built-in narration with accurate pronunciations to help children brush up on their language skills. Children and their parents can opt to personalise the experience through a recording programme that records narrations and sounds.
Me Books is now available for subscription at RM12/month or RM60/year via MyDigi Subscriptions.
4. Atom & The Dot
Any parent will know that the trick to keep children out of trouble is to keep them busy! Atom & The Dot enables fun and continuous learning for children aged between two to nine years through hands-on art science activity boxes. Each activity box comes with materials and instructions for art and science-inspired activities and experiments which will keep children entertained while sparking their curiosity and promoting creativity at the same time.
For Digi customers who are interested to try out Atom & The Dot, they can do so with the single trial pack at RM25 or opt for the RM40 for a monthly mini box subscription.
Veative offers over 650 VR modules mapped to the Malaysian (KSSM) curriculums. It provides students with another way to connect with complex concepts, via an engaging virtual environment. Open your children’s world to new possibilities and take a deeper dive into science and mathematics topics in a virtual world.
Digi customers can subscribe to Veative for a special price of RM95 which comes with a VR headset and 1-month subscription. Subsequent renewals thereafter will only be at RM10/month.
Screen time can be an enriching experience for children through Hopster, a safe and ads-free entertainment and education app developed by academics in childhood education and cognitive development. The app contains hundreds of television shows, books, songs and games under one platform and comes with parental control features and smart screen time features.
Hopster is available for subscription from RM5/week.
