DICT DISTRIBUTES LAPTOPS AND ICT GADGETS TO DEPED BENEFICIARIES



Great day! Read the information shared by DICT to the public about them distributing laptops and other ICT gadgets to DepEd beneficiaries to aid learning during time of pandemic.
The Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) under its Digital Education Program (DEP) acquired laptops and gadgets intended to assist its partner Local Government Units (LGUs) facilitate ICT-enabled education especially during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Said laptops and gadgets which were given by the LGUs to student beneficiaries, will soon improve the delivery of services to the education sector – a mandate that DICT fulfills.

“Through these initiatives, we aim to be more responsive to the needs of our students under the online and blended learning modalities as face-to-face classes are currently suspended during this public health emergency,” DICT Secretary Gregorio “Gringo” B. Honasan II said.

In the formulation and implementation of policies and initiatives, it coordinates with the Department of Education (DepED), the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), and the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), to develop and promote ICT in education consistent with national goals and objectives.

Hence, devices and laptops were procured for DICT’s DEP’s pilot projects -- Cybersafe Learning for Education, Cybersafe Learning for Education of the Cybersecurity Bureau (CSB), and the Digital Learners and Teachers.
