Less than 80 percent of learning modules distributed in advance of school opening
The Department of Education said that it has distributed 79.86 percent of modules to students throughout the country one week before the official start of classes.
“Hindi puwedeng husgahan ‘yung kahandaan just because hindi pa nakakarating si printed learning modules,” Education Undersecretary Diosdado San Antonio said.
DepEd explained it targets to complete the distribution process of modules within the week.
“Kasama sa pagsasabi naming kahandaan ‘yung mga identified contingencies na kasama na rin ‘yung paggamit ng ginawa nila. At ‘yung textbooks, puwede rin ‘yun basta lagyan ng learning activity sheets at learning plans,” San Antonio said.
The Education Undersecretary said that the DepEd longed that more students who have gadgets will take advantage of technology in the next school years.
“Hopefully sa mga susunod pong pasukan, ‘yung may mga smartphones at mga gadgets ay i-encourage na natin para hindi na masyadong marami ang pangagailangan sa mga papel,” San Antonio said.
San Antonio clarified that an internet connection was not required since the modules could be given to students using a flash drive.
