Mayor Lilvir “Ver” Roque said this is part of their e-learning and school modernization program starting this coming school year 2016-2017.
In his speech during the first moving up ceremony in Lamao National High School, Roque inspired the students and advised them to be skilled in every field that they will choose upon leaving school.
Starting this June, students from various public schools here will no longer carry heavy bags on their way to their classrooms because the municipal government will purchase computer tablets for more than 5,000 public school students.
“This summer, our teachers here will be trained for this new module in learning, to be initially implemented in our three major schools here this coming school year 2016-2017,” Mayor Roque told 1Bataan.com.
The Genyo system which is said to be first to be used here in North Luzon (public schools) provides students and teachers with an exclusive online subscription 24/7 to a wide array of multimedia, curriculum-based teaching and learning resources.
Genyo is a state-of-the-art online e-Learning Management Program that comes complete with rich interactive multimedia content on Science, Math, English, Araling Panlipunan, Filipino, and Chinese. It also features an online resource portal and an intensive teacher training program to ensure success and sustainability of your school’s e-learning program.
This next generation Genyo provides rich and engaging interactive multimedia content for the students so they can have fun while enhancing their academic performance.
Teachers can also customize the program so they can augment their lesson plans and apply effective teaching styles suited to the students’ needs. Since the program is accessible anytime, anywhere, parents will also be able to monitor the improvement of their children in school and guide them in their study.
Meanwhile, Roque added that aside from computer tablets, most classrooms in Limay High School, Lamao High School and St. Francis High School will be installed with projectors with interconnected module and programs installed in every student’s tablet.
Initially, 1,449 Grade 5 students; 1,223 Grade 6 students; 748 Grade 10 students; and, 750 Grade 9 students of Limay High School will be given computer tablets.
On the other hand, 682 students of Lamao High School and 210 St. Francis High School Grade 9 students will also receive computer tablets from the municipal government.
Meanwhile, Mayor Roque also said that all 12 villages or barangays of this town will be Wi-Fi ready when the PLDT’s fiber optic installation is finished.
