Briones dreams of giving laptops/computers to students for online learning

Department of Education wants to provide laptops and computers to students for online learning as face-to-face classes are still not allowed, according to Secretary Briones.

“Alam natin wala silang laptop at desktop. Ang dream natin tayo ang mag-provide ng laptop, desktop,” Briones said in a public briefing.

Education Undersecretary Nepomuceno Malaluan also said that DepEd is on the process of realigning budget to support the alternative mode of education delivery.

“Nagrere-budget pa kami ngayon kung paano matutustusan ‘yung pag-convert noong materyales ng mga bata na angkop sa silid-aralan, face-to-face learning into, halimbawa, self-learning modules,” Malaluan said.

“Kung television, alam mo naman na kapag TV, kailangan pang may production work doon para ma-convert sa television-based instructions,” he said.

Malaluan also said that they are tapping private sectors for possible additional resources.

“Sa pakikipag-usap din natin sa iba’t-ibang partners…para tignan natin, bukod doon sa mga resources ng gobyerno, ay madagdagan din natin with non-government partners and private sector partners ang ating resources,” he said.

“Para masigurong hindi magiging pabigat doon sa ating mga mag-aaral at saka sa kanilang pamilya ‘yung paglahok dito sa panibagong paraan ng paghahatid ng leksyon,” he added.

  1. More classroom teachers could have been given laptops to be used in on-line had they were given priority in the distribution of laptops previously purchased by deped delivered to the division office down to schools. More classroom teachers are ranked T1-T3 who hardly can afford to buy one decent laptop.

    Unfortunately, when laptops were distributed to school level, department heads and master teachers were given first. There are some schools where school principal was also given one. What were left were distributed to teachers to the dismay of others who were not given one.

    What deped should have prioritized were teachers 1-3. Those in the higher rank most probably, by this time already have their own or at least have the better capacity to provide their own given their better salary than those Teacher 1-3.

    There is no wise in the distribution of limited number or scarce supply of laptop. You dont have to be an economist to grasp the best way in prioritizing who to receive the limited units of laptops. SIMPLE COMMON SENSE WILL DO. APPRENTLY, THEY HAVE NONE.

    Had there is no corruption within the government, every teacher will be provided with one. THAT IS MY DREAM. TO GET RID OF CORRUPTION. AND REMOVE THE STUPID POLICY MAKERS BOTH IN CONGRESS AND WITHIN THE DEPARTMENT. BUT THAT IS ONLY A DREAM BY AN ORDINARY TEACHER.

  2. Teacher nga di ninyo mabigyan ng laptop uunahin pa mga bata sana unahin ang pangangailangan ng guro, kung ano ano ipinagagawa sa paaralan wala naman bata sino makikinabang nun tapos kami ng shoulder ng kulang na ink at bondpaper para sa module nasan ang budget.Pag nanghingi ka ng bondpaper at ink kung ano ano sasabihin sana lumugar kayo sa sitwasyon na kung kayo ang nasa sitwasyon ng mga guro. Yan ang dapat pagtuunan ng pansin bakit kailangan magpagawa ng magpagawa sa paaralan na wla naman napasok na bata.
