Globe and Asia Pacific College Support DepEd Students with Free Connectivity Solutions
Asia Pacific College (APC), in collaboration with Globe Telecom, worked with the Department of Education (DepEd) in donating free connectivity solutions to DepEd students under the Schools Division of Pasay City.
Through DepEd’s Joint Delivery Voucher Program (JDVP), senior high school students attending Technical-Vocational-Livelihood (TVL) courses received Globe Prepaid Internet Kits and Load Up (SchoolSURF and EnterpriseSURF) Plans.
“In line with Globe’s objective to contribute to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, we make it a priority to assist schools in providing Filipino students with quality education,” mentioned Peter Maquera, Senior Vice President for Globe Business. “Partnering with APC in DepEd’s program allows us to leverage our solutions to help public school students become business leaders and ICT professionals in the future. By supporting the JDVP-TVL, we’re able to grant them access to educators, learning content, and online resources, anytime and anywhere.”
The JDVP-TVL of DepEd, also known as the Joint Delivery Voucher Program for Senior High School Technical-Vocational-Livelihood Specializations, is able to implement its programs through partnerships with different institutions. APC, which has been a JDVP-TVL participant since 2018, has been teaching students ICT specialization subjects such as JAVA programming and animation.
171 students from three public schools in the area of Pasay were able to benefit from the alliance between APC and Globe. Through Globe Connectivity Solutions, the schools were able to monitor classes and their students’ performance. APC was also able to provide both students and teachers online academic support such as counseling, library access, document request services, and more.
“What was supplied to students during JDVP, for two months, was not only connectivity through the WiFi kits, but also the freedom to learn,” said Dr. Tata Pastor Medado, President of Asia Pacific College. “We gave them the freedom to explore the power of technology and use that power to drive innovative projects. Every student participant had equal access to course content, tools, data, and unrestricted access to their teammates and mentors.”
With flexible learning becoming the standard in the delivery of education, Globe continues to work with the likes of APC in recreating the way students learn. By bridging schools with Globe’s connectivity, learning management, collaboration, and communication tools, more students and teachers are able to pursue their learning objectives and overcome roadblocks caused by the pandemic.
