Take a look at what classrooms are like in 2020

Do you still know how Philippine education is being conducted?

As the traditional face-to-face setup is not advisable while we maintain physical distance amid an ongoing pandemic, the education system – like many other sectors – was forced to shift digitally.

To help this sector, Globe At Home launched its WIFI2TEACH campaign to provide much-needed connectivity. 

In September, they partnered with the Department of Education and Lazada to provide Home Prepaid WiFi modems for public school teachers. They were able to accumulate a total donation of 2,000 modems.

We’ve come a long way since then. A few months into the academic year 2020-2021 and we’ve already been introduced to different forms of learning. 

However, it might be confusing to fully understand the similarities and differences between these.

In this infographic, we give you a rundown of various academic setups used all over the country and their characteristics.

As we can see, Philippine education heavily relies on connectivity. As such, access to the Internet is vital for all students and teachers.

Following the successful first leg of the WIFI2TEACH campaign, Globe At Home has partnered with the Ayala Foundation for the benefit of public school students. Starting from November 1 until December 31, Globe At Home will match every purchase of a Globe At Home Prepaid Wi-Fi exclusively sold in Lazada, Globe Online Shop, and Shopee with a P100 donation to fund free Home Prepaid WiFi modems for these students. 

Already have a Globe Prepaid WiFi modem? You can still give back just by subscribing to a promo. For every HomeSurf and HomeWatch promo loaded from December 9, 2020 to January 7, 2021, Globe At Home will also donate P1 to fund the internet connection of selected public school students.

This Christmas season, consider giving back to the community through your purchases. While you ensure that you are connected to your loved ones over the holidays, you can also help support students no matter what academic setup they may be utilizing. – Rappler.com
