Learn at Home: Globe MyBusiness launches e-learning webinar for educators - Globe joins forces with digital learning experts to discuss the future of education amid COVID-19 pandemic

With schools closed for the duration of the Enhanced Community Quarantine in Luzon, many educators deem it as the perfect time to harness the power of communications technology so that students can still learn while in the comfort and safety of their homes.

Globe MyBusiness supports this idea, and is encouraging an in-depth discussion through a webinar that is open to educational institutions, with experts offering insights on the right tools and techniques for utilizing and maximizing digital learning.

The E-Skwela webinar, which will be held on March 31, will discuss the possibilities of current learning technologies and their integration in the school system during the time of the COVID-19 crisis. The webinar will help school owners and educators understand digital learning and how it can be implemented remotely.

Moderated by Gerson Abesamis, Executive Director of Habi Education Lab and Senior Lecturer at UP Diliman and Miriam College, the webinar is designed to help school administrators, key decision makers, and faculty members understand and learn how to integrate tools and activities that are intentionally experiential, collaborative and reflective to maximize learning.

Panel members for the E-Skwela discussion are experts who will share best practices in integrating e-learning: Bro. Dennis Magbanua, FSC, Community Director at La Salle College, Hong Kong; Rogelio Dela Cruz, Head of the Center for Instruction, Research, and Curriculum- Education Technology Office at De La Salle College of Saint Benilde; Miguel Bermundo, Head of Citizenship and Advocacy Marketing Division at Globe; and Mark Abalos, Learning Technologies Scholar and Education Industry Lead at Globe.

Among the topics for discussion are strategies to help schools become crisis-ready by integrating technology in their ecosystem, best practices in leading schools on handling the quarantine situation, challenges of the use of technology in teaching and learning, processes to set up an e-learning program for students, and impacts of this teaching practice on the future of education in the country.

Globe myBusiness helps educational institutions integrate technology and digitally transform to help teachers and students continue being productive and informed as they stay #SafeAtHome during the time of the COVID-19 crisis. As it helps customers stay connected in this period of social distancing, it continues doing its part towards nation-building as a reliable and trusted partner for educators in promoting 21st century Learning.
