BACOLOD CITY, May 2 (PNA) — Twelve public elementary schools in Silay City, Negros Occidental have been included as recipients of Department of Education’s (DepEd) Text2Teach Project.
Text2Teach is part of DepEd’s Information Communication Technology for Education Program that uses the latest technology to improve the quality of education in public schools.
It seeks to improve the quality of teaching in Grades 5 and 6 by providing highly interactive and easy-to-use multimedia materials designed to make learning more fun.
The beneficiaries are the Sto. Rosario Elementary School (ES), Adela ES, Guinhalaran ES, Mambulac ES, Don E. Hofilena ES, Dominador Oking Jison ES, Bongol ES, Emiliano Lizares ES, Hinicayan ES, Tayap ES, Don Homero Tanpinco ES and Violeta Integrated School.
Last month, the teachers in these schools attended a workshop sponsored by the Ayala Foundation Inc. and Silay City Government.
The workshop aims to train teachers on the use of Text2Teach videos and lesson guides.
It also provided a forum for the schools to present their action plans for effective management and use of Text2Teach in their schools this year.
Silay City Mayor Jose L. Montelibano challenged the teachers to equip their students with the needed information and technology skills to prepare them to be globally competitive.
He further stressed that it was his dream to innovate Silay City through the help of technology. (PNA)
