The local government unit of San Nicolas in Ilocos Norte inaugurated on Thursday its newly-refurbished “i-hub” or internet center to cater to its learners under the new normal education system.

Town Mayor Alfredo Valdez said the center, which is located beside the municipal hall building, is currently equipped with 12 computers with high-speed internet. Students who have no personal computer or other learning gadget can go and take turns in loading their learning modules at the facility.

It also has a cozy space for reading while coffee and other refreshments may be had at the adjacent cafeteria.

“We likewise have available space for other public or private schools if they have spare computers to be used by their students in our library,” he added.

To avoid overcrowding of students at the i-hub, the mayor said they will be clustering the barangays just like what they are doing at the San Nicolas public market and post a schedule for the learners in each village.

Local officials are also closely coordinating with the Department of Education to beef up the anticipated distance learning program for students.
