The provincial government of Bataan, in coordination with the Department of Education (DepEd), has started to establish information hubs (i-Hub) in all senior high schools in the province.
Governor Albert Garcia said they have distributed computers, electronic boards and other high tech materials starting with Pablo Roman National High School in Pilar town and J. C. Payumo Memorial High School in Dinalupihan town.
Paulo de Guzman, master teacher and ICT i-Hub coordinator of Pablo Roman National High School, said they already received from the governor 50 complete sets of computers, two packages for computer system services and other high tech items.
“The computers are for use by all students, especially those in senior high school for their specialization,” de Guzman said.
According to the governor, the computers are equipped with speech lab.
“Our youth should be trained in IT at their early age. After graduation in senior high school, if they choose to work, at least they are prepared and have training. Likewise, they have skills if they want to pursue college education,” Garcia said.
He said that even those in junior high schools can make use of the computers in batches.
The governor said that the computers are housed in big i-Hub buildings that the provincial government began constructing in all 16 senior high schools in the province.
The buildings serve not only as computer labs but as classrooms, Garcia added.
Computer sets at 50 units per senior high school were placed for safekeeping at the Bataan command center.
As soon as the i-Hub buildings of the rest of the senior high schools are ready, the items will be distributed. (PNA)
