iSchools MOA signing charts project's training phase

by Liz Cruz

Quezon City, Philippines (23 September) -- With the upcoming nationwide deployment of ICT hardware to 320 recipient schools already on track, the Commission on Information and Communications Technology's iSchools Project is currently completing parallel preparations for the consequent training rollout phase.

With this, each State University and College (SUC) partner will be tasked to take on the responsibility to manage iSchools training modules for assigned public high schools in their locality. The modules include Web Development, Library Management, Laboratory Management and the Computer and Internet Literacy Course.

Part of this commitment is to conduct joint efforts with the CICT-Human Capital Development Group in integrating ICT in public school education.

The CICT-SUC partnership was made official through a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) signing activity held at the Office of the Secretary, CICT-NCC Building last September 17, 2010.

Representatives from 12 partner State Universities and Colleges coming from all over the country graced the said event. Seven SUC presidents and 10 ICT Coordinators comprised this group.

CICT Chairman, Secretary Ivan John E. Uy, led the SUC representatives in the signing of the MOA. iSchools Project Manager, Toni Torres was also present to witness the event.

"This is solid proof of the collaborative effort between government and academe in bridging the digital divide," beams Torres.
