To do well in any subject you must be able to think correctly! Thinking skills are something you can learn and develop. Ask yourself questions as you read your textbooks and notes. Talk to other students whom you notice have good thinking skills. You can also sharpen your thinking skills by taking IQ tests available in books or the Internet, or playing games that require thinking such as word games.

CYBERJAYA, April 18 (Bernama) -- Multimedia University (MMU) has become the first university in Malaysia to collaborate with the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) under the Malaysia ICT Volunteer (MIV) programme.

A total of 50 MMU students have signed up as volunteers for the programme to help elevate the digital literacy development among local community in Selangor and Melaka.

MCMC Chairman Tan Sri Dr Halim Shafie when officiating the launch of MIV@MMU programme here today, said MMU's involvement in the MIV programme would set a benchmark for other universities to follow suit.

"This programme will also benefit our volunteers as they can use this opportunity to develop their interpersonal competency and self-esteem while doing the volunteering work," he said.

The voluntary programme will kick start with volunteers' workshop from April 20 to 22, and the volunteers are expected to engage with the local community in the following week until early June 2018.

The programme will be conducted at 1Malaysia Internet Centres where the volunteers need to impart the positive use of ICT knowledge and encourage digital adoption among the community.

Halim said since its inception in Kampung Pandan, Lundu, Sarawak on Feb 27, 2016, a total of 1,013 volunteers had been selected and trained under the MIV programme, which has reached out to 250,015 people.
