 PLDT, Smart empower learners in 2021

PLDT and Smart Communications, two of the leading telecommunications companies in the Philippines, have recently announced their commitment to empower learners in 2021. With the ongoing pandemic, the need for digital learning has become more crucial than ever before. PLDT and Smart recognize this need and have taken steps to ensure that learners have access to the tools and resources they need to succeed.

One of the ways that PLDT and Smart are empowering learners is through their partnership with the Department of Education (DepEd). The partnership aims to provide free access to DepEd Commons, an online platform that offers educational resources for K-12 learners. With this partnership, PLDT and Smart are making it easier for learners to access quality educational materials, regardless of their location or financial situation.

In addition to their partnership with DepEd, PLDT and Smart are also offering various digital tools and services that can help learners in their studies. For instance, Smart has launched Giga Study, a data pack that provides access to various educational apps and websites. Meanwhile, PLDT has introduced the Home Wifi Prepaid Advance, a device that allows learners to connect to the internet without the need for a fixed broadband connection.

PLDT and Smart’s efforts to empower learners in 2021 are not limited to providing digital tools and services. The companies are also investing in programs that can help learners develop their skills and knowledge. For example, PLDT has launched the Gabay Guro program, which provides training and development opportunities for teachers. The program aims to equip teachers with the skills and knowledge they need to deliver quality education to their students.

Overall, PLDT and Smart’s commitment to empowering learners in 2021 is a welcome development, especially in these challenging times. By providing access to digital tools and resources, as well as investing in programs that can help learners develop their skills and knowledge, the companies are helping to ensure that learners have the support they need to succeed. As we navigate the new normal, it is important that we continue to prioritize education and provide learners with the tools and resources they need to thrive.
