LAOAG CITY – Distance learners struggling with the so-called new normal received tablet computers from the Ilocos Norte government and donations from public and private individuals.
Dr. Danny Daquioag, education consultant of the local government, said in an interview on Friday around 4,000 mobile tablets were purchased under the province’s Special Education Fund.
“I hope our students will take good care of the tablets,” Daquioag said during a ceremonial distribution program at the Bacarra National Comprehensive High School (BNCHS).
Students from Cadaratan National High School, also in Bacarra town, were the other beneficiaries of the continuing tablet distribution program.
For a struggling learner like Justine Moses Abad of San Nicolas town, the new gadget helps him in research works.
“Thank you for my new tablet. It helps me connect with my studies at home,” he said. “I also share the gadget with my younger sibling.”
Aside from the distribution of tablet units, desktop computers and printers were also given to several schools to speed up the printing of modules and assist teachers. (PNA)
