The initiative will engage 1000 professors from all over Philippines in a three-week process that includes a two-day boot camp, the elaboration of a final project and personalized coaching.
Boot camps will take place in Metro Manila, Naga City, Pampanga, Cebu City and Cagayan de Oro City, from January to June 2017. Teachers will be enrolled online to Brightspace Integrated Learning Platform, where they will be able to network with other professors, access multimedia resources and collaborate with their coaches in real time.
According to Michelle Tapia, advisor and head of Globe’s education strategy and innovation, “Students today are digital natives who grew up in the era of computers, mobile phones, and instant connectivity, making it necessary for teachers to be adept in the use of technology in order to guide the students properly in the use of digital information both inside and outside the classroom.”
