Digital Learning Tools

A pioneer of digital education in junior high school in the country, Malayan High School of Science has been employing powerful digital tools and resources in teaching its students.

The school utilizes the learning management system Cardinal EGDE, powered by its mother school Mapúa University, for lectures, laboratory, research, and other academic activities. The use of the platform, along with other digital tools, paved way for Digital Days, the conduct of simultaneous online classes held on class-suspending days.

Malayan Science currently provides students with access to more than 30 of the latest online licensed and open-source educational tools and subscription-based and open-access resources, making remote learning effective and easy for learners. These tools can be accessed anytime and anywhere by students for both synchronous and asynchronous classes through Cardinal EDGE.

Mathematics subjects at Malayan Science are complemented with the licensed tool MATLAB, a software that combines the desktop environment with programming language that expresses matrix and array mathematics directly.

For robotics classes, through its long-time partnership with First Eduspec Inc. (FEI), the school conducts robotics classes using OPACAD, FEI’s learning management system, and RobotC. Meanwhile, real-time collaboration is facilitated through Microsoft Teams.

Students also have remote access to the school’s rich and powerful digital resources that can be used for research and reading activities. Currently, Malayan Science has subscriptions to 13 e-Book and e-Journal databases and to a digital newspaper and magazine library, PressReader.

Malayan Science’s e-Book and e-Journal subscriptions include resources for academic activities in research (Gale, Wiley Online Library, EBSCOhost, ProQuest), science (AccessScience, ScienceDirect), engineering (AccessEngineering, IEEE Explore), information technology (ACM Digital Library), agriculture and environment (CABI), art (EBSCO Art and Architecture Complete), business (EBSCO Business Source Premier), and general knowledge (Encyclopædia Britannica).
