MANILA, Philippines – To catalyze educational transformation through technology, Globe’s online education community This isKwela and online learning platform EdVenture are giving away free 500 single tutorial sessions for parents on April 21, 2022.
“With most schools deploying online learning due to the pandemic, we want to elevate learning by equipping parents with an additional learning tool to ensure that their children do well in school while at the same time providing additional income to hundreds of Filipino educators who either lost their jobs or experienced reduced salaries due to the pandemic,” said Sarah Cortes, Head of EdVenture Learn Group.
KD Dizon, Head of Globe Business, MSME Group, said the initiative can show students and parents how technology can be a tool to boost learning, instead of a hindrance to education.
“Our goal is to make parents and students comfortable with using technology for learning. We believe technology can level the playing field in terms of access to quality education. This effort by EdVenture and This isKwela is aligned with our Globe for Education program, which aims to provide quality education to everyone by leveraging technology,” said KD Dizon, Head of Globe Business, MSME Group.
The free tutorial sessions will be via EdVenture, a portfolio company under 917Ventures, Globe’s corporate venture builder.
