The Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) has launched its Technology for Education, Employment, Entrepreneurs, and Economic Development (Tech4ED) Centre in the Daniel R. Aguinaldo High School (DRANHS) in Davao City last Thursday (20 July 2017).
"We are very much thankful to the DICT for choosing DRANHS as one of the recipients of the Tech4ED Project which could help us improve the teaching and learning in this institution," said Doctor Arlene Bello-Pernes, principal IV of DRANHS, in a report by SunStar Davao.
The DICT has trained 19 junior and senior high school teachers on the services that will be offered by the centre before its launch. Tech4ED is one of the key programmes of DICT that aims to establish technology centres across the country to provide e-government and ICT-enabled services in communities with minimal or no access to information and government services.
In June, the DICT reported that it has opened 764 Tech4ED centres across the country in the first six months of 2017, which is 109 percent above their target. Overall, there are currently more than 1,620 Tech4ED centres operating in the country.
