The Philippines’ leading digital solutions platform, Globe, has launched its Globe for Education campaign “TuloyangEdukasyon, TuloyangPag-asa” an initiative that aims to support the education sector’s journey towards 21st century learning.
The campaign kicked off with a bang Youtube video around the idea that education is the key to a better future. It shows Globe’s efforts to improve access to education through various initiatives and the central role that technology plays in the future of education.
“Technology can level the playing field for everyone, especially the disadvantaged. We can provide quality education to everyone through technology, regardless of their social status or where they live. Globe for Education signifies our commitment to improving the lives of Filipinos by helping to alleviate the challenges faced by students, teachers and school administrators so that learning continues no matter what,” said KD Dizon, Head of Globe Business, MSME Group.
With the improving healthcare landscape once again opening up pathways for learning, Globe wants to lend its support to get education back on track. “As we prepare for the next school year, we would like to help ensure that the education sector is ready to provide an engaging learning experience for all. We will champion solution-based services to help restore the hope that education brings to every Filipino,” said Angeline Po, Product Marketing Manager, Globe Business, MSME Group.
“Globe has always been an advocate for education. We are committed to lifting our country toward 21st century learning. Our programs and solutions advance the new learning ecosystem by providing affordable connectivity, accessible platforms, and a safer learning environment,” said Yoly Crisanto, Senior Vice President of Corporate Communications and Chief Sustainability Officer at Globe.
Education for all
Globe offers affordable connectivity that makes digital learning more inclusive. These include mobile and broadband Internet offers designed for education: Go50 for students with access to GoLEARN&WORK apps via Globe Prepaid, EasySURF50 with access to FunARAL apps via TM and HomeSURF199 with a large data allowance to enable the home learning.
Globe also offers device bundling and funding, curated educational apps for kids and adults like Da Vinci Kids and Upskillist, helpful educational resources from the Ayala Museum and Edukasyon.ph, and free access to platforms of knowledge such as the Globe electronic library.
Last year, Globe and De La Salle University also launched a teacher training program to build the skills of educators in teaching technopreneurship to students. The program, which incorporates business principles and social innovation practices, is expected to benefit some 2,100 students in the DLSU system each year.
Globe has partnered with the Department of Education, Higher Education Commission and Technical Education and Skills Development Authority to provide learners with access to tax-free platforms such as DepEd Commons and PHL CHED Connect.
Safe, accessible and engaging learning environment
Globe has been a strong advocate for a safe learning environment through various programs: the #MakeITSafePH campaign, which calls for public vigilance against cyber threats, and the Digital ThumbPrint program, which teaches students online responsibility for help change behaviors like cyberbullying and spreading fake news. .
Schools can also revolutionize their blended learning setup with Globe Business’ classroom management, school management and learning management systems, which offer a host of tools and services to empower teachers.
To create an online community serving customers and Internet users, Globe launched the This is the Kwela community on Facebook, which aims to engage learners at different life stages in meaningful and inspiring conversations, skill building and knowledge sharing.
Building the future with education
Globe launched the Globe Filipino Teachers (GFT) program, which offers teacher training in digital literacy, parental support on digital learning, responsible online behavior, effective 21st century approaches to early language literacy and psychological first aid. It also partnered with key cities and LGUs to highlight how technology can help advance education in their respective fields and promote STEM learning.
Globe is optimistic that these collaborative learning platforms will provide holistic support for teachers, school administration, students, and their parents toward future-proofing education.
Globe strongly supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, in particular SDG 4 on quality education and SDG 9, which highlights the role of infrastructure and innovation as as key drivers of economic growth and development.
