PIA Press Release

DepEd Ifugao launches website

LAGAWE, Ifugao (20 October) -- With the national government bent on implementing the Cyber Education Project, the local Department of Education here launched its website recently.

Envisioned to provide a paperless exchange of communications in the province, the launching was graced by Governor Teddy Baguilat Jr. as the guest of honor, mayors and DEP-Ed officials from the Division and 11 district offices.

"It likewise aims to have a systematic management of data and widen linkage with stakeholders," Supt. Estela Carino said adding that with this, Deped is in with information technology.

Baguilat hailed the Dep-ed family for giving importance to this technology stressing that this will bank on the cooperation and support of the different stakeholders.

He disclosed that he started coordinating a similar project to be installed at the Provincial Office during his first term as Provincial Governor in 2003 but this was stalled when he lost the 2004 elections. Now that he is again elected as governor, this encouraged him to revive the project.

In addition, he made emphasis on the project of the Ayala Foundation in which they give computers and free connections and registration to the internet for a year. However; the Local Government Units (LGUs) must be share their counterpart.

Meanwhile, Joaquin Bullong, a retired principal of one the elementary schools in the province said The Cyber Education project of the government through the DepEd is good because it aims to bridge the gap between urban and rural schools by using satellite technology but this should not be tainted with anomaly at the expense of the people.

He said that the project will be of great help in improving the quality of education in the country among the different schools by beaming televised lectures to students and teachers in far-flung areas.

Ifugao province being very behind in computer technology facilities can greatly benefit from this project because the satellite based distance learning program that will result is capable of broadcasting lectures by the best teachers from the DEPED model schools that can be shared by other public schools nationwide.

How I wish I am still in the active service so I can experience this new technology of teaching applied in our schools, he added.

Bullong suggested that the project should continue but the government must make it transparent and open especially in the bidding of its contract and implementation.

This is to ensue that the money is used wisely because it is a loan to be paid by the people through taxes therefore they have the right to know every detail of each transaction and not to derail their trust in the government, he said. (PIA-Ifugao) [top]
