The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted societies in different ways. This variation is inherently geographical with patterns across space and time reflecting underlying societal inequalities. This study describes a learning intervention designed to afford participants opportunities to experience the diffusion of a (virtual) virus within a community, albeit in a safe way. The intervention was enacted in March 2021 among nine undergraduate teachers-in-training at a teacher-education institute in Singapore. Participants were invited to reflect on the connections between their personal decision-making and its impact on the broader community, after having first undertaken a collaborative task in a virtual environment. The Socially Responsible Behavior through Embodied Thinking (SORBET) Project draws on the learning sciences in terms of embodied cognition and projective identity, and in this study, seeks to apply them to geographical understandings of diffusion. Responses from post-activity interviews are reported along three themes, as structured by the cultural–historical activity theory. Through encouraging reflection on authentic experience, the authors hope to catalyze a more grounded appreciation of the need to practice positive social habits in the context of a pandemic and by extension, contribute to the fight against the virus through the application of geographical thinking at local and global scales.

This study aims to discover how technology firms accomplish digital innovation through AI adoption. The current research also investigated digital resilience's role as a mediator and training protocol's role as a moderator between AI adoption and digital innovation links. The data collection and analysis were conducted using a quantitative method. To examine the research hypotheses, we chose technology firms that face problems regarding the enhancement of digital innovation. The findings confirmed that the digital innovation of technology firms is forecasted through AI adoption. The results proved that digital resilience plays a mediating role between AI adoption and digital innovation links. Technology firms play a key role in the advancement of digital technology. This research study adds to the existing knowledge by offering a digital innovation model with the combined influence of AI adoption, digital resilience, and training protocol. This study will be helpful for top management by showing when, why, and how AI adoption helps firms in their achievement of digital innovation. Moreover, digital resilience's role is also important in the current digitalized world;thus, we used digital resilience as mediator in this research.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, all institutions of higher learning in Malaysia have shifted to online learning to ensure that teaching and learning (T&L) are continued despite the movement control order (MCO) imposed by the government. Universiti Malaysia Sarawak embraced a fully online T&L approach for all courses including programming courses at the Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology. This ad-hoc shift to online T&L had raised some concerns which normally require hands-on training. One of the concerns is whether students can do their tests well with the change of medium of instructions from having physical classes to fully online without any physical class. Before the MCO, a blend of physical lectures and labs with online activities were conducted and followed by an online test (Test 1). During MCO, in order to accommodate fully online T&L approach, recorded lecture videos, live video teaching and online forum for discussions were the main medium of instructions replacing physical classes. For the duration of the online T&L, two more online tests (Test 2 and Test 3) were given to the students. The students' performance for Test 1 was then compared to their performance in Test 2 and 3. Our investigation showed that there was no significant change in the students' performance in the tests regardless of whether their medium of instruction is with or without physical classes. This provides an indication that the ad-hoc online T&L approach assisted students' learning during the pandemic. © 2021 RIGEO. All Rights Reserved.
