“It is more efficient, safer because less contact for the students and teachers, and less printing cost,” said Governor Abet Garcia during the official turn-over of the 12, 257 tablets for the senior high school students in the ten (10) municipalities, yesterday, held at The Bunker.
Since the start of the pandemic, printing of modules is one of the main struggles of teachers and the students as well. Thus, having a portable gadget that contains the modules of the student is a great help for the students. It will save more time and budget for the schools for they won’t need to print out their modules. While the tablets are given for free, students should surrender their tablets once the school year ends, so that other incoming senior high school students will be able to use them.
The municipalities who received the tablets are the following: Dinalupihan, Limay, Orani, Orion, Hermosa, Molor, Pilar, Bagac, Abucay, and Samal. Balanga City will also distribute tablets to their senior high school students while the Municipality of Mariveles had already distributed said tablets earlier.
According to Governor Abet, if this initiative to adapt to the online learning system will be successful, it will be implemented as well to the junior high school and elementary levels.
DepEd Bataan staff, a representative from Cherry Mobile, Vice Governor Cris Garcia, Congresswoman Geraldine Roman, selected students, teachers, and parents attended the said event.
