To remain competitive in the world, Malaysia needs to embrace change and become an innovation economy.
To achieve our goal, the Ministry of Education & Agensi Inovasi Malaysia (AIM) jointly created the i-THINK project.
i-THINK equips Malaysia’s next generation of innovators to think critically and be adaptable in preparation for the future.
The project helps schools impart thinking skills to students, allowing them to be lifelong learners; great at solving problems and coming up with creative solutions.
Agensi Inovasi Malaysia (AIM) is a statutory body set up by the Malaysian Government to drive and sustain progress for Malaysia by accelerating a culture of innovation.
Providing equal opportunities to quality education for all is the Ministry of Education’s primary focus. Malaysia’s educational goals are manifested in the National Educational Philosophy (NEP) with the ultimate aim of achieving the nation’s vision to prepare children to become knowledgeable and skilled individuals to meet the challenges of the 21st Century.
Emphasis is placed on science, technology and information technology, as well as inculcating good moral and work ethics. This remains the central focus pursuant to developing a world-class curriculum that will help
teachers, parents and children keep up with the accelerating pace of economic and technological changes.
Access, equity and quality education will ensure a progressive future for Malaysia, even in inaccessible areas. Under the 10th Malaysia Plan, new initiatives are further enhanced through the entire educational developmental lifecycle, from early childhood education to basic education and tertiary education and all the way to adult working lives. The National Key Result Areas (NKRAs) for education under the Government Transformation Programme (GTP) provide the roadmap with detailed objectives, outcomes and set of actions to address these challenges in our endeavours to ensure that quality education is available to all.
