In line with its goal of bringing inclusive, accessible and safe learning solutions to Filipinos, Globe recently launched a new online education community that aims to spark meaningful and inspiring exchanges, while enhancing learning about digital platforms.
The telecommunications company encourages everyone, regardless of age, to become part of its “This isKwela” Facebook community – a hub that supports learning at different stages of life and offers a new online space for members to meet new friends, learn new information, sharpen their skills, and share your knowledge.
The community benefits many: from students wishing to complete their formal education to professionals seeking information for work. It also helps those who need to upgrade, even seniors who want to learn more about technology and digital applications.
Experts on key topics are available to help community members. They are Angelo Sicat, teacher and creator of practical, easy-to-digest English learning topics on TikTok; Immanuel Maglasang, the man behind the Science Kwela online channel; Cipriano Romeral Jr., a math expert who lectured for the teacher licensing exam; and educator Maureen Madiano, a licensed teacher and content creator who teaches basic English and Filipino lessons on various social media platforms.
“With more people joining and participating in online communities, Globe aims to build an inclusive social hub that serves as an alternative learning community for anyone who wants [engage in] lifelong learning,” said Yoly Crisanto, Globe’s Chief Sustainability Officer and Senior Vice President of Corporate Communications.
Globe believes This isKwela is timely as more and more people embrace the “new normal” learning through digital platforms such as online courses, online libraries, and webinars, among others.
This isKwela is part of GoLearn, a unified initiative to help the country achieve 21st century learning. It aims to open doors for a better future by promoting lifelong learning and further bridging the digital gaps in the Philippine education landscape through access to connectivity, learning platforms and other solutions.
