MANILA, Philippines -  Globe Telecom has partnered with the Department of Education (DepEd) and three renowned teaching innovators in the country for the training of select public school teachers on creative methods and approaches to learning under the K-12 basic education system.

Globe is collaborating with Mano Amiga, Habi Education Lab and Affordable Private Education Center, Inc. or APEC Schools for the five-day “Teacher Training Workshop on 21st Century Learning.”

The training is a key component of the Global Filipino Schools (GFS) program, which includes internet connectivity, ICT equipment and infrastructure support. It includes workshops on how to maximize the use of technology in the classroom, and project-based learning.

“The objective is to transform 120 teachers from various provinces in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao and make them DepEd trainers and experts adept at providing 21st-century learning,” Yoly Crisanto, Globe senior vice president for corporate communications said.

Mano Amiga Academy Inc. is a non-profit learning institution that provides low-income communities access to international quality education, sustainable livelihood and community development.

Habi Education Lab is a design and research group that works to empower schools and educators on learning through capacity-building workshops and collaborative research projects.

APEC Schools seeks to transform thousands of Filipino lives by providing high-quality yet affordable education and produce graduates that are ready for college and professional employment.

 “We want the next generation to discover lifelong learning opportunities as well as enjoy inclusive and equitable quality education as being espoused by UN Sustainable Development Goal No. 4 (ensuring inclusive education),” Crisanto said.

Eleanor Pinugu, executive director of Mano Amiga Academy Inc., said she looks forward to sharing with the public their school’s best practices.
