Batac CITY—To keep abreast with the educational changes and student needs, a business processing outsourcing (BPO) company at least 10 advanced computer units to learners of the Baay-Bungon National High School in this city on August 22, 2018.

The Batac public school is the latest beneficiary of the continuing distribution of computers to schools in the province courtesy of Alorica Teleservices Inc., a BPO company based in San Nicolas, Ilocos Norte.

The computer distribution program is in support of Ilocos Norte’s full-swing implementation of its provincewide information and communication technology project, enabling more learners to have ultimate access to various learning materials available in the world wide web.

Of the four provinces in Region 1, Ilocos Norte boasts of its high literate rate of 98.2 based on the latest statistical record of the Department of Education.

Public schools in the province are now starting to do away with the traditional paper and pencil classroom discussion as they try to adopt to the so-called “21st century model classroom”, featuring advanced computers placed in each table for students, connected to a central server, and can be viewed in a 3D capable television.

This way, learners are expected to excel when they are equipped with state-of-the-art technology for better learning.

After the distribution, teachers and students expressed their gratitude for the donation of computers in their school.

Through a memorandum of agreement, the Sangguniang Panlalawigan authorized Ilocos Norte Governor Ma. Imelda Josefa “Imee” Marcos to receive the computers from the BPO company.

Previously, hundreds of computers were donated to some far-flung schools in the first district of Ilocos Norte.
