During one of our computer lessons back in high school, one of our classmates referred the computer monitor to as “TV”. It was funny, but there is a deep wisdom in it in understanding why people from poorer public schools like us should be assisted in terms of Information and Communications Technology (ITC) integration.

As we all know, not all parts of the Philippines have got the access to technology. Thanks to companies like Globe that keeps in pushing boundaries to bring ICT tools to less privileged schools.

With ICT integration in schools, learners could explore the wider world on their own. The teacher’s burden is lessened, while the learner’s understanding of theories and concepts is literally upgraded.

In select public high schools in Batangas and Negros Occidental, Globe Prepaid helped in bringing 21st century learning through their Global Filipino (GFS) initiative. Teachers were first trained on how to use ICT methods inside their classroom.

Raymond Policarpio, Director of Globe Prepaid, said:

“With the tools available for them under GFS, the teachers can now have access to limitless teaching and learning engagements available on the Internet.  They can enroll in online learning channels, engage in teleconferencing for best practices, and even operate classroom management tools.  In short, a teacher can now work faster, more efficiently and effectively through the program.”

On top of the training, Globe Prepaid also provided the schools with Tattoo connection and Globe Mobile laboratory package consisting of a set of netbooks, mobile projectors, printers, and sound systems.


For sure, the learners benefiting from the program will nourish their talents and skills and will grow up to become better managers of this land.
