Globe Business, TNL Tech Solutions Make Digital Learning Accessible to Over 5,000 Students In Valenzuela City
For cash-strapped Filipino students weighed down by the extra cost of remote education, Globe Business and TNL Tech Solutions forged a partnership to make digital learning more accessible and more affordable, ensuring they continue to get the quality education they deserve.
TNL Tech Solutions Corp., a local technology services investor, provider and distributor, partnered with the local government unit of Valenzuela City to provide assistance to marginalized students whose budget constraints make it difficult for them to attend online classes.
Through the partnership, TNL provided 5,561 students with tablets that allowed them to keep up with their virtual classes. To complement these, TNL tapped Globe Business to provide them with the right connectivity and essential digital tools for all their learning needs. TNL Tech Solutions invested in Globe Business’ DIGILEARN as a SIM-only plan through the Rewards API, a prepaid mobile data that includes 10GB and predefined applications useful for online learning such as Canvas, Blackboard, Brightspace, FB Messenger, WhatsApp, Hangout, Viber, Office 365, G Suite, Course Hero, Zoom and Google Classroom.
With a bigger data allocation they can use for schoolwork, the students can fully maximize these tools, particularly Google Classroom, which was approved by the Department of Education as a learning platform in Valenzuela City.
“We are glad to be in this partnership with Globe Business who shares the same vision of quality and inclusive education for all Filipinos by giving students access to digital learning tools to help them cope with the demands of the new normal in education,” said William Namoco, Operations Manager of TNL Tech Solutions, Inc.
TNL Tech Solutions has been engaging local government units nationwide for various initiatives in education and the environment. They have also received support from various private organizations to help them implement these projects.
“Globe Business has long been an advocate of quality education for all Filipinos, and as part of our commitment to help the country achieve 21st-century learning despite challenging times, we continue to hold hands with kindred spirits like TNL to bring reliable and affordable digital tools and solutions to more educators and learners nationwide,” said KD Dizon, Head of Globe Business, MSME Group.
“Through our innovative productivity tools and connectivity essentials, coupled with personalized servicing, training, and network access that we extend to our partners, we aim to fill the gaps in remote learning and redesign the classroom experience to help uplift the quality of education in our country and aid a brighter future for the next generation,” she added.
