ECHO, OXFAM, World Vision, And ADRA Partner To Support Goni-Displaced Families In Bicol

World Vision, along with several of its partners, vows to provide immediate aid to the most affected communities in the hard-hit areas of the Bicol region.

Globe further enhances its support to the Department of Education (DepEd) by helping public school educators keep up with the demands of the new normal through free professional development training designed to provide teachers with essential knowledge and skills on digital literacy, blended learning and 21st century learning methods.

The program is part of Globe’s Global Filipino Teachers (GFT) initiative and is being implemented through a combination of webinars and downloadable self-paced materials for teachers to apply their learnings. GFT was launched in 2009 to deliver information and technology-based training to public school teachers across the country.

With the nation’s shift to remote learning, Globe found it essential to partner with Habi Education Labs and Teach for the Philippines, as both are well known for their exceptional work in forwarding 21st century learning in public schools nationwide.

Habi Education Lab is a non-profit organization known for developing progressive approaches to teaching that helps foster creativity in the classroom. Their scope of programs include teacher development, learning experience design, and school innovation. Teach for the Philippines focuses its efforts on improving teacher quality and addressing education challenges at the system-level. Since 2012, TFP has grown into a nationwide movement that has engaged hundreds of new and existing public school teachers committed to work towards meaningful and positive change.

The upcoming GFT sessions to be led by both organizations have been recognized by the National Educators Academy of the Philippines which ensures all attendees obtain the knowledge and skills that are vital in these unusual and challenging times.

“We want to create new learning opportunities from the crisis and help our teachers see themselves as agents of change as they transition into remote and blended learning modalities. Through this professional development program, we hope to equip and empower them with the knowledge they need to become more effective in their role as educators,” said Yoly Crisanto, Globe Chief Sustainability Officer and SVP for Corporate Communications.

The webinars cover topics such as parental engagement where teachers and parents can work together for home-school partnership (October 27); teaching reading in the context of distance learning as part of early language literacy (October 28), and new approaches in instruction using digital learning (October 29). The first webinar on Cybersecurity and Wellness was held last August.

The Global Filipino Teacher Series is open to all teaching and non-teaching staff of DepEd in the National Office, Regional Offices, and Division Offices, and to all public schools nationwide. The webinars will be streamed via the Globe Bridging Communities Facebook Page, and will be shared by DepEd on the main DepEd Philippines Facebook Page.

As a long-time advocate of quality education and sustainable development, Globe is committed to supporting the United Nations Development Goal No. 4 which promotes inclusive and equitable quality education and lifelong learning opportunities for all.
