Validation team visits Biliran PCPS project

By Lanie Pitao-Tupaz

Naval, Biliran (5 June) -- A team composed of representatives from the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and Department of Education (DepEd) central office is here today to validate the Personal Computer for Public Schools Project in the province of Biliran, according to George Modesto, Senior Trade and Industry Specialist of DTI and at the same time the PCPS Provincial Coordinator.

The validation team aims at validating the best practices in the areas of integration of ICT, sustainable operation of the computer laboratories, and in serving the IT needs of the community.

It was also learned from Modesto that Phase 1 of the PCPS Project in Biliran started in 2001 where Naval National High School, Kawayan National High School, Maripipi National Vocational High School, and Bool National High School were each given 20 units of personal computers.

Phase 2 of the PCPS benefited Naval School of Fisheries, Biliran National Agricultural High School, and Almeria National High School when each school were given 10 units personal computers. While the local government units of Biliran, Cabucgayan, Caibiran and Culaba each received five units of personal computers.

With the positive feedbacks from the previous phases, DTI proceeded to Phase 3 of the PCPS Project. Phase 3 of the PCPS Project was implemented last year in Manlabang National High School, Cabucgayan National School of Arts and Trade, Culaba National Vocational School, Lucsoon National High School, and Tucdao National High School. These schools each received 10 units of personal computers.

The validation today is followed by a consultative meeting tomorrow with the stakeholders. Officials from DepEd-Biliran, heads and PTCA officers of the beneficiary schools, and the local government units concerned are invited to the consultative meeting to gather inputs for the assessment of the project impact.

The PCPS Project is funded by a grant from the Overseas Development Assisstance (ODA) from Japan during the term as trade secretary of now Senator Mar Roxas.

This project aims at providing computer literacy to all secondary school students all over the country, Modesto added. (PIA Biliran) [top]
