BTS To Celebrate 8th Debut Anniversary With Virtual Fan Meeting

Published

on

SEOUL, June 11  — BTS, the seven-piece act that has emerged as the world’s biggest boy band, is set to hold a two-day fan event in line with its eighth debut anniversary, reported Yonhap, quoting the group’s agency on Friday.

BTS 2021 Muster Sowoozoo, now in its fifth round, will take place through online streaming on Sunday and Monday, according to Hybe. It marks the first mass fan event of its kind since one held in 2019.

To make up for the online streaming, Hybe said the event will take place at an outdoor stage so that fans can feel as if they are there.

Rather than incorporating state-of-the-art technology like augmented reality and extended reality that were used for the septet’s recent concerts, the priority of the upcoming event will be on interacting with fans, it said.

“The focus will be on presenting the liveliness of the scene as if fans watching from their screens were taking part in a lively festival.”

But fans will still be able to use features like a multi-view screen and “ARMY on Air,” which shows fans’ faces on screens set up on stage.

BTS, which has topped the Billboard main singles chart with four songs, including “Dynamite” and “Butter,” debuted in June 2013 with its first single “2 Cool 4 Skool.”

Mothers-Teachers Collaboration Makes PdPR A Success

Published

on

KINABATANGAN, June 25  — The implementation of home-based teaching and learning (PdPR) requires full commitment from teachers and students, but the role of parents is also important in ensuring its effectiveness.

Teachers at a school in the interior of Sabah are aware of mothers’ influence in the success of PdPR, especially in areas where it is difficult to conduct online learning.

A teacher, Najme Nasir, said mothers of pupils of Sekolah Kebangsaan (SK) Sungai Lokan, had given a strong commitment to making PdPR a success since last year.

“The one who gives a lot of cooperation is the mother at home, the one who helps the students a lot is the mother, the one who keeps nagging kids about their homework is the mother.

“For that, we really appreciate the role of mothers in helping their children and also helping us teachers implement PdPR,” he told Bernama when contacted.

Najme said the commitment of the mothers made it easier for teachers to monitor the progress of students at home as some areas in Kampung Sungai Lokan did not have good internet access due to the hilly terrain.

The school’s teachers and headmaster, Masnah Apong, always looking for ideas to encourage students to be interested in learning, he said.

Among them is using their own money to buy school supplies, wrapped them before delivering them to 62 school children at their homes.

“There is no denying that the performance of students in the interior is different from that in the city, let alone when PdPR was launched following the pandemic.

“For us, we want the students here not to be left behind in their studies,” he said.
