More tablets will be distributed to students in Ilocos Norte

The Energy Development Corporation (EDC), the country’s biggest wind power plant in Burgos, Ilocos Norte, will give about 862 brand new tablets to underprivileged and deserving students next week.

The learning gadgets, which are valued at PHP7.5 million, are intended to encourage more kids in the province to excel in their studies under the new regular education environment, according to Andy Durog, facility head of the EDC Burgos Wind Power Corporation.

The money spent on the tablets was part of Durog’s company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative, and it was in response to the governor’s request for additional tablet contributions to help learners who have been doing distance education for more than a year.

β€œThis is the first time we are giving tablets to Ilocos Norte learners,” said Durog in an interview on Friday, adding that a shortage of learning devices remains a significant issue for students in the province, especially since the majority of them are enrolled in the modular learning program.

Dr. Dany Daquioag, an Ilocos Norte education expert, said the distribution would coincide with the province government’s ongoing gadget distribution under the Special Education Fund.

The province government has been providing high-speed printers, laptops, and tablets to support the Department of Education’s current distance learning initiative.
