It is great to see that more and more institutions are promoting the use of ICT and the Internet for advocacy and education. In the Philippine Internet Review, we featured projects like the IBM Computer Eyes Program, Philippine Schools Cyberfair, among others that intends to serve that purpose.
Last week, Warren Ambat of Baguio City National High Schol-Main, Donald Dungog of the Science and Technology Education Center in Lapu-Lapu City Cebu, and Evelyn Waperi of Iligan City National High School were named as the top three winners of the Third Innovative Teachers Leadership Awards (ITLA) by Microsoft Philippines through its Partners in Learning program. They were recognized last Wednesday at the Manila Yacht Club Pasay City.
The three teachers competed with 49 other entries for this competition. Implemented with the Department of Education, ITLA seeks to give Filipino educators the recognition they deserve for contributing to the improvement of the student’s learning experience through the imaginative and efficient use of information and communications technology in classroom teaching. Teachers Ambat, Dungog, and Waperi, will travel to Siem Reap, Cambodia to represent the Philippines in the Microsoft Regional Innovative Teachers Conference where 150 teachers from 22 countries shall converge and share their creative teaching practices.
