0 90

In celebration of World Teacher’s Day, Makati Mayor Abby Binay gave gadgets and other essential equipment to over 3,000 public school teachers in the city.

Each “digital teacher’s kit” contains a jacket, boom microphone, numeric keypad, mini tripod, ring light, and external sound card. Teachers also received a multi-purpose backpack/bag with UV sterilizer and USB charging port, as well as a pen tablet.

Writing for Pilipino Star Ngayon on October 11, Binay said the pen tablet will allow teachers to draw and animate graphics they use for teaching.

“Para sa akin, napaka-importanteng mabigyan ng bagong digital tools ang mga guro dahil magagamit nila ito sa mas maayos at mas epektibong pagtuturo sa mga kaba­taang Makatizen. Bukod pa dito ay talaga namang deserve nila ang mamahalin at pinakabagong mga gamit dahil hindi biro ang pagod at hirap nila sa araw-araw,” she said.

In the second year of blended learning, Binay said she appreciates the efforts put in by teachers to ensure students learn.

“Maliit na bagay ito kumpara sa patuloy nilang pagsasakripisyo at dedikasyon upang mabigyan ng mataas na kalidad ng edukasyon ang ating mga anak. Gusto namin na maging mas proud sila sa pagiging gurong Makatizen, at gusto ko ring ulit-ulitin na buo ang suporta namin sa kani­lang mga pangangailangan at mga programa,” she said.
