"Revolutionizing Education through Technology"


Welcome to the official website of the Malaysian Educational Technology Association (META). META, also known as Persatuan Teknologi Pendidikan Malaysia (PTPM), is a professional organization that serves as a bridge connecting educators and technology enthusiasts in the field of educational technology. Founded in 1988, META strives to enhance the utilization and application of various aspects of educational and information technology in Malaysia's education system.

The History

Back in June 1987, the Ministry of Education Malaysia organized a convention on Educational Technology at the National Education Management Institute (now known as the Aminuddin Baki Institute). During this convention, Puan Seri Datin Hafsah Bt. Hj. Nasir, the Director of the Central Educational Distribution Division at the time, presented a paper that received enthusiastic responses from all participants. One of the outcomes of the convention was the proposal to establish the National Educational Technology Association. A pro tem committee, led by Associate Professor Puan Sri Dr. Rohana Zubir, was appointed to lay the groundwork and explore possibilities for the establishment of PTPM.

Finally, on September 26, 1988, the Malaysian Educational Technology Association was officially established. The pro tem committee chairperson and several committee members were appointed as the permanent committee members of the newly formed META. As per the PTPM Constitution (1988), META operates as an independent professional organization with its registered address at the Educational Technology Division, Ministry of Education Malaysia, Bukit Kiara, Kuala Lumpur.


META's establishment is rooted in the clear and comprehensive objectives listed in its Constitution. These objectives encompass various areas of educational technology relevance and aim to drive innovation and improvement within the field. The objectives are as follows:
