For learning in ‘new normal’: Isko Moreno gives gadgets to teachers, students
Manila Mayor Isko Moreno is giving tablets to students and laptops to teachers for free in preparation for blended learning for the school year 2020-2021.
Moreno led the initial distribution of gadgets on Wednesday, August 26, at the Aurora Quezon Elementary School.
The gadgets come with free pocket wifi with a 10-gigabyte free data monthly allowance.
“Mahirap talaga ang distribusyon but at least masasabi natin, kahit papaano, nayayakap natin ang bawat pamilya ng mga batang Maynila,” Moreno said.
Education Secretary Leonor Briones, in a virtual message, thanked the local government for providing free gadgets for teachers and students in Manila.
“Alam ko ‘yan ang ating kinabukasan, ang pag-transmit ng ating education ay nakasalalay sa technology dahil ‘yan ang tawag ng panahon– may COVID man o wala,” she said.
