AP and Acer Indonesia renew collaboration on Jelajah Ilmu
— Dr. Benson Soong
Advanced Pedagogy (AP) and Acer Indonesia recently announced the renewal of their successful partnership whereby Jelajah Ilmu, an AP platform, will continue to serve as a focal point for both parties to further Acer Indonesia’s Acer for Education program in the local Indonesian curriculum sector.
The Jelajah Ilmu partnership between AP and Acer Indonesia has been enormously beneficial to both organisations so as to further their efforts of bolstering education through the use of technology. Through this partnership, AP has contributed significantly to Acer Indonesia’s mission of revolutionising and increasing accessibility to high quality education for all schools in Indonesia.
“AP has always placed the development of education and its accessibility at the forefront of our company’s vision. While we possess some of the most advanced educational technologies and a proven pedagogy on our education platforms, it would have been a gigantic task to deliver our product to the ones that primarily require them without the support of Acer Indonesia and their Acer for Education program,” said Dr Benson Soong, Founder of AP.
AP, through its Jelajah Ilmu platform, provided crucial support to the Acer for Education program by technologically enabling the Acer Smart School Awards. Additionally, both AP and Acer Indonesia have launched the Jelajah Ilmu Academy, which seeks to upskill educators for the new educational landscape in Indonesia.
“Acer for Education was initiated with a focus on supporting academic betterment in Indonesia. By working with AP on the Jelajah Ilmu platform, we have already seen this partnership greatly benefit many schools and communities. The extension of this partnership will see the introduction of various new features within the Jelajah Ilmu platform, like HQ Leader Dashboard, a Competency Evaluator platform, and the introduction of Jelajah Ilmu Certified Schools. These and other efforts will contribute towards our joint mission of improving education for all in Indonesia,” said Maya Fransisca, Marketing Head Acer Indonesia on the renewal of the partnership.
The main goal of Acer for Education is to contribute to all acceleration processes of digitalization in the education sector. In realising this, Acer Indonesia has established guidelines for implementing their four pillars of the digital transformation ecosystem that will drive these acceleration processes. Firstly, the focus is to strengthen Human Resources, which is carried out through Jelajah Ilmu Academy. Secondly, promoting the Jelajah Ilmu platform so that the digital education ecosystem becomes integrated. Thirdly, supporting the fulfillment of digital support by producing products with physical components (hardware) that already have TKDN certification. And lastly, to provide maximum protection through cyber security services.
