Communications and Multimedia Minister Saifuddin Abdullah today said that the criticism and mocking of a teacher’s recent science lesson in English on educational television channel DidikTV constitutes cyberbullying.
He said the people should take into account that the teacher was not a professional actor and might not have undergone training before the recording was made.
“She should not be criticised for doing her job as an educator… I also think that the education ministry should not be treated (criticised) like that because this is a new thing and of course there are weaknesses here and there.
“These weaknesses need to be addressed to ensure the content will be improved from time to time,” he said at a press conference today.
Saifuddin said his ministry was ready to offer assistance to the education ministry in the preparation of DidikTV content, as the ministry through the National Film Development Corporation had expertise in filming.
