The COVID-19 outbreak has caused not only economic downturn around the globe, but also educational disruptions, as most governments were forced to close schools to stop the spread of the virus.
As the pandemic is shaping the educational paradigm, Acer Philippines, the country’s leading computer brand in the PC market, has been at the forefront in ensuring that its Acer Academy program members will continue to benefit from the advancements of its EdTech capacity, amid the modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ).
Acer recently launched a webinar ~ in partnership with school administrators, educators, and stakeholders who are adept in educational computerization ~ to tackle the challenges in the “new normal” and provide opportunities for innovations in the field of e-learning to facilitate the continuity of education.
The webinar garnered a total of 1,077 online registrants, which indicate a growing public interest in subject matters relating to new learning platforms amid the pandemic.
As mass testing for COVID-19 began in key cities this week, Save the Children Philippines is calling on local officials to put in place protective measures for children who may face discrimination and stigma when parents or guardians test positive.
Atty. Alberto Muyot, Chief Executive Officer of Save the Children Philippines, said a person’s health status, whether real or perceived, should not be a basis for discrimination and mistreatment.
Have you seen the new Google Doodle today? It is a cool and colorful illustration/video of 7 cute planets saying hello. This is to celebrate the 7 planets that are discovered recently. Experts say that they are about the same size as our planet, Earth, and they all orbit closely together around the star named Trappist-1. They are also saying liquid water, as well as signs of life, might just be found in the surface of these planets.
How cool it would be like to discover new things, right? We all are a bit small and we discover something new everyday + each discovery is just as exciting as the last one. It would be fun to know more about these new planets as we grow to know more about our own. We have yet to talk about these topics in school + I cannot wait to learn about them!
