Bridging the Tech Gender Gap
In an inspiring endeavor to bridge the tech gender gap and foster lifelong learning, Favoriot collaborated with University College Agroscience Malaysia (UCAM) as the training provider to conduct an invaluable IoT training program for TVET JELITA.
The four-day training, held from 9th to 12th October 2023 at the serene UCAM campus, was tailored to reskill and upskill women in technology, particularly in the realms of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET).
A Confluence of Diversity
The training saw a diverse turnout of enthusiastic participants, each bringing a unique blend of background, education, and age to the table.
This rich diversity cultivated a fertile ground for learning and exchange of ideas, making the experience more enriching.
Laying the IoT Foundation
The curriculum was meticulously designed to ensure a gradual and comprehensive understanding of the Internet of Things (IoT).
It began with an introductory session that unveiled the marvels of IoT, shedding light on how it’s reshaping the modern world.
The introductory phase was aimed at nurturing a solid foundation upon which more complex concepts would be built.
Transitioning to Hands-On Training
Following the theoretical introduction, the training transitioned into a more hands-on approach.
Participants were provided with IoT kits and were introduced to the Favoriot IoT platform, which would be their sandbox for the upcoming practical sessions.
Practical Exercises and Real-Time Application
Under the vigilant guidance of seasoned instructors, the participants delved into practical exercises that saw them interfacing sensors, collecting data, and using the Favoriot platform to analyze and visualize this data.
The Favoriot platform’s user-friendly interface was a boon for the participants, enabling them to grasp complex concepts with ease and apply them in real-time.
The Empowering Impact of Hands-On Learning
The hands-on sessions were not only eye-opening but also empowering.
Reflecting on the Training
The training concluded with a feedback session where participants expressed their gratitude and shared how the program had broadened their horizons and ignited a passion for tech within them.
The success of the training underscored the transformative power of well-structured educational programs in equipping individuals with the skills needed to thrive in the digital age.
Fostering a More Inclusive Tech Community
This initiative by Favoriot and UCAM is a testament to their commitment to fostering a more inclusive tech community.
By empowering women with the knowledge and skills in IoT, they are not only contributing to individual empowerment but are also taking a significant stride towards a more diverse and inclusive tech ecosystem.
The Ripple Effects of Targeted Training
The ripple effects of such training programs are boundless. They not only equip individuals with in-demand skills but also inspire a culture of continuous learning and innovation.
The TVET JELITA IoT training is a shining example of how targeted educational initiatives can have a far-reaching impact on individuals and the broader community.
