Globe Business hits the road with E-skwela Technology Roadshow to power tech-driven classrooms
As the education sector’s technology enabler, Globe Business earlier this year held an innovation-packed roadshow to ensure that all schools across the country get access to the latest digital tools. This effort aims to help revolutionize learning and equip students with the skills and knowledge needed to thrive in the challenges of the 21st century.
From May to July, the E-skwela Technology Roadshow made its way to Pangasinan, Laguna, Iloilo, Roxas, the Greater Manila Area (GMA), and Davao, providing educators the unique opportunity to connect with industry experts, experience digital solutions firsthand, and to empower their classrooms in hybrid education.
“We embarked on this exciting journey to deliver digital solutions to make sure that no school or student is left behind in this digital age,” said KD Dizon, Head of Globe Business. “Through this roadshow, we paved the way for academic institutions to tap into the latest frontiers of digital education para tuloy ang edukasyon, tuloy ang pag-asa,” she added.
One of the main features of the roadshow was the opportunity for participants to engage in discussions with experts, helping them gain a deeper understanding of how technology can reshape the future of their classrooms.
Shaping the Future of Classrooms with Technology
Engr. Ericson Dimaunahan, director of Mapua University’s Center for Teaching and Learning-Digital, emphasized the importance of cultivating future-ready schools amidst the evolving educational landscape and matching these with the most suitable technologies for the classroom.
“Changing the way we educate students could mean enabling learning beyond classrooms with the help of new technology. These changes aim to improve overall student outcomes and equip them to be future-ready,” said Dimaunahan.
Jim Tuscano, Founder of EmpowerEd Advocacy Program also underscored technology as a necessity to prepare students for the real world.
“The workforce now requires digital literacy. Therefore, equipping students with digital skills and knowledge will prepare them for their future jobs,” he said.
To showcase how educational institutions could drive innovation into the classrooms and elevate student engagement, Globe Business introduced a comprehensive suite of digital solutions and services fit for their needs. Among these, the Wela School System empowers educational institutions to efficiently manage their operational and administrative tasks while offering real-time monitoring of daily school activities through a single platform.
Another noteworthy introduction was ClassIn, an online classroom platform equipped with built-in teaching tools designed to make classes more interactive and engaging. It seamlessly combines online classes, chats, cloud drives, exams, and assignments into one platform.
Meanwhile, Zoom for Education allows for up to 300 participants in a meeting per license which is suitable for remote and hybrid learning, allowing students and teachers to engage and collaborate from different locations.
Zoom for Education and ClassIn both have integrated interoperability features with other applications, simplifying and enhancing the classroom experience for teachers and students within a single platform.
