ITINURN-OVER ng Globe Telecom sa Department of Education (DepEd) ang Global Filipino Schools (GFS) program nito na naglalayong isulong ang 21st-century learning principles at information and communications technology (ICT) integration sa mga public school sa buong bansa upang makatulong sa pagpapaangat sa sistema ng edukasyon sa bansa.
Sa pamamahala sa GFS, mababantayang mabuti ng DepEd kung paano napaghuhusay ng teknolohiya ang pagtuturo at pagkatuto para sa posibleng replication sa ibang public school na hindi sakop ng programa.
“Nation-building starts in the classroom, so we want to make sure that we equip our future leaders with 21st-century skills and knowledge. Initiatives like GFS that introduce new ways of educating our youth are very important in helping the country keep pace with the rest of the world. We are looking forward to having more public schools adopt technology through internet connectivity and mobile tech solutions that GFS provides,” wika ni Tonisito M.C. Umali, Esq., Undersecretary for Legislative Affairs, External Partnerships, and Project Management Service.
Samantala, sinabi naman ni Yoly Crisanto, Globe Chief Sustainability Officer and SVP for Corporate Communications, na: “Technology and innovation are major drivers of progress, and we recognize their importance in improving performance and facilitating learning of students and teachers. With GFS now under DepEd, we hope to open doors for more public schools to experience an education that is not limited to the four corners of the classroom and not bound by physical textbooks or paper and pen so that borderless learning can take place.”
Ang GFS program ay nagkakaloob sa mga eskuwelahan ng free internet connectivity, gayundin ng mga ICT tool tulad ng tablet, projector, virtual reality (VR) goggles, casting dongle, Home Prepaid WiFi modem, at mobile phone. Ang mga partner school ay tumatanggap din ng intensive teacher training program sa 21st-century learning approach, ICT integration sa classrooms at workshop modules on responsible digital citizenship. Ang bawat eskuwelahan ay nagsisilbi ring teacher training hub sa DepEd division na kanilang kinabibilangan.
