TikTok Launches #TikTokClassroom

#TikTokClassroom

In conjunction with International Teachers’ Day on Saturday, TikTok, the leading destination for short-form mobile videos has launched an education initiative in honour of educators in Malaysia and around the world. Called #TikTokClassroom, the initiative provides an inclusive and engaging platform to learn new things outside the classroom setting. 
TikTok Launches #TikTokClassroom
#TikTokClassroom
Every two weeks, TikTok educators from Malaysia join other educators from all around the world to lend their expertise on subject matters they’re proficient in including language, life hacks, and photography. 

Each TikTok classroom would consist of three TikTok educators who can share up to three tutorial or how-to videos each on a given subject.  Viewers would then be able to access these videos by searching #TikTokClassroom on TikTok. Many Malaysians from various professions including educators have already lent their expertise including:-
“Educators around the world impart knowledge to students of all backgrounds, religion or race. It is an admirable trait to selflessly provide knowledge without discrimination in a safe environment for the benefit of shaping the young minds of tomorrow. We feel it is only appropriate to honour this noble profession by naming our initiative after the very place they share their knowledge, the classroom,” said Cheah Sheau Mei, User and Content Operations Manager, Malaysia. She continued, “The #TikTokclassroom initiative seeks to replicate a safe, positive and inclusive environment where students have the ability to learn in a fun and engaging manner outside the classroom, with a community of like minded creators, regardless of nationality, ethnicity, gender or socio-economic levels.”

#ForClimate challenge - Partnership TikTok with International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC)

TikTok and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) partner to inspire action against climate change

Global warming is real. Hotter days, rising sea levels (melting glaciers and ice caps) and more frequent and intense extreme weather events can be seen not just overseas but in Malaysia as well. Many institutions have banded together in a united effort to address its effects. Just recently, TikTok partnered with Conservation International to address marine plastic pollution by pledging to donate up to $100,000 (RM400,000) to help save 3,000 square kilometers of ocean.

Additionally, TikTok users can also take part in an interactive quiz where they can test their knowledge on environmental protection and share actions they have done to help end the climate crisis.
TikTok users in Malaysia have already begun uploading their videos in a show of solidarity towards this important global issue:-

Malaysia and SPAO Collaborate to Bridge Gap Between Fashion and Tech

Honor Collaborate with SPAO

Leading mobile e-brand HONOR Malaysia has announced a collaboration with South Korea's leading fast fashion brand, SPAO on the August 22. Having previously partnered with leading fashion brands such as high fashion label Moschino, and streetwear labels such AAPE and the homegrown TNTCO, this announcement is in line with HONOR’s commitment to bridge the gap between high end technology and fashion 

Malaysia and SPAO Collaborate to Bridge Gap Between Fashion and Tech
HONORxSPAO
HONOR has been making waves in the fashion industry, most recently with the HONOR 20 Colour Report, which found that two-thirds (66%) of people believe the colours they wear can create the ultimate first impression, and more than half (53%)* believe other people form opinions of them based on the colours they wear. Understanding how important colours are, HONOR invested in creating the most magnificent colours for the newly launched HONOR 20 PRO. The Dynamic Holographic glassback was made in a two-staged process - the depth layer is created using a precise technique and is embedded with millions of miniature prisms that resemble pieces of diamonds, making it the perfect accessory to go with the fashionable pieces from SPAO.​
*study conducted in fashion capitals Milan and London 

Sharing similar values with HONOR, SPAO caters to the young and urban crowd, offering trendy clothing and accessories. The brand was launched back in 2009 with its first store at Myeongdong, Seoul. It made its way to Malaysia later in 2015, debuting at Parkson Elite in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur and its simple yet fashionable pieces proved to be a hit with Malaysian youths.  

Both HONOR and SPAO are set to inspire Malaysians with its offerings by combining flagship-level technology and wearable yet trendy pieces. More details will be announced soon, so stay tuned!
