ABSTRACT - The international mindedness concept has received considerable attention from stakeholders thanks to a growingly global interconnectedness and interdependence. International mindedness refers to having an understanding and respect of one’s own and other's culture, identity, and ways of life. Education is expected to play a significant role in nurturing unity among students by developing an understanding and respect towards other cultures and identities. Thus, the international mindedness education has become crucial in promoting harmony and world peace by removing ethnic, religious and socio class barriers as schools around the world become more diverse. Despite the natural state of plurality and diversity among the communities in Malaysia, there is a major challenge for the government to develop a harmonious nation that is parallel to the Malaysian identity and values – even though the government puts paramount attention on fostering national unity through education. The government has gone the extra mile to explore the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program as an alternative learning model to nurture 21st-century skills, values, and unity among students. As a result, the program has succeeded in developing internationally-minded students through the International Baccalaureate (IB) Learning Profile. This study will impact how integrated values and unity among students can be promoted to achieve harmony and world peace using a holistic model of teaching and learning that is congruent and aligned with curriculum, assessment, and teachers’ belief and practice.

ABSTRACT - Malaysia has always planted a goal to develop a holistic human capital that is intellectually, spiritually, emotionally, and physically balanced and harmonic – which was centred in The National Philosophy of Education. However, along the way, Malaysia’s education system seems to have focused more on students’ academic achievement. This is reflected by the results of public examinations that consistently show a steady increase every year due to the dominance of teacher-centred learning that focuses on memorising facts. Despite the fact that public examination results increase yearly, there are still students who are unable to master key skills, such as literacy and numeracy, as well as high-level thinking skills. Many factors that are critical to the quality of education, such as the spiritual, emotional, and physical development of a student, should also be taken into account in shaping well-rounded learners. The implementation of holistic assessments is, therefore, crucial in preparing students for 21st-century challenges. The Ministry of Education has since introduced the Middle Years Program International Baccalaureate (MYPIB) to facilitate meaningful learning through holistic assessments. The assessment practices in the 10 International Baccalaureate World School Kementerian Pendidikan Malaysia BWS KPM are in accordance with the Standard Program and Practices, and the MYPIB Learning Model would develop holistic individuals through the inculcation of the IB Learner Profile.

ABSTRACT - Food and beverage services are synonymous with excellent hygiene during the handling process. Most service providers are fully committed to reducing any contamination factors. Unfortunately, the variable in this case, which involves the human element, is unpredictable. A problem revealed by a case study stressed on the application of the food tray. Improper management of food during an event can expose it to potential hazards. Therefore, this research project addressed the implementation of a smart buffet food tray with a sensing element. This project was aimed at reducing any direct contact between humans and the lids of the trays as well as the period of exposure of food to the surroundings.

Abstract - The rapid development of educational technology in the 21st century has created numerous online learning platforms and digital applications to support learning. One of the common online learning platforms that is currently used is Google Classroom (GC). The use of Google applications such as Google Docs, Google Slides and Google Quiz enables the instructors to design different types of learning activities in GC. However, having a great platform and tools is inadequate to ensure learning can take place effectively. Therefore, the application of learning theories such as Behaviourism, Cognitivism and Constructivism, and a framework, the revised Bloom’s Taxonomy, is essential for designing learning activities in GC using the Google applications. Therefore, this paper explores how the learning theories and the revised Bloom’s Taxonomy can be applied in the design of learning activities in GC using Google applications.

ABSTRACT - Online purchasing behaviour has increased due to the upsizing usage of smartphones, tablets and personal computers. Moreover, the explosion of technology has also impacted consumer shopping habits or behaviours drastically over the last few years. Consequently, there is a growing concern regarding security issues and the use of information given online in terms of the privacy of personal information and the unintended uses of it. Therefore, the paper aimed to examine whether there is any significant difference in the trust of e-commerce between genders, and analyse the association of the perceived trust based on perceived privacy and security. The results demonstrated that gender difference did not support alternative hypotheses, there is no relative difference in trust of male and female customers, and a significant negative association was obtained between perceived privacy and security. Hence, the more perceived privacy and security of the e-commerce that the customers felt, the higher the trustiness level towards the e-commerce platforms.
