Kalinga OSYs go hightech

TABUK, Kalinga (2 October) -- The 100 computers provided by the Office of Congressman Laurence Wacnang were turned-over to various school recipients to train learners including out of school youths(OSYs) become computer literate.

Of the total, 20 were given to the Alternative Learning System (ALS) of the division.

According to ALS Supervisor Marcelo Talamayan, the computerization of ALS through the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) of Congressman Wacnang and the Department of Trade and Industry is to tool students and OSYs on information and communication technology (ICT) in support to the government's program establishing cyberspace corridors.

The cyper services corridor describes areas in the country engaged in ICT outsourcing and businesses, including schools and the academe to make them e-services hub.

Talamayan said their share of computers complete with accessories arrived on September 25 and were placed at the ALS Center at the Bulanao Central School. With this, he said OSYs will no longer be alien to computer technology.

Meanwhile, five ALS mobile teachers will attend a capability building on October 20-28 in Tagaytay to upgrade their skills to further improve the teaching process. Talamayan said the training is a yearly upgrading of knowledge, skills and attitudes for teachers.

In another development, Talamayan said a literacy and livelihood skills competition will be held at the ALS center where OSYs compete in a Quiz-B on basic literacy, food processing, sports particularly in volleyball and other events to be conducted before the conduct of the regional competition in December this year.

Talamayan also announced that the registration for applicants to the Philippine Education Placement Test (PEPT) is ongoing for qualified over-age in-school and OSYs both in the elementary and high school level. The test will be held on November 19 at the Bulanao Central School.

He also informed that interested applicants to the accreditation and evaluation test covering OSYs aged 15 and above set on February next year may now apply. Peter A. Balocnit(PIA-Kalinga) [top]
