More Quezon City residents are expected to gain computer knowledge and skills through eLearning platforms in Tech4Ed community-based centers that will be set up in the city’s barangays, which will boost the city’s efforts to make its residents more computer-literate and productive.
This developed as the Quezon City Government and the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) which aims to provide opportunities to the marginalized constituents to learn computer skills through DICT’s eLearning platforms with educational content in Tech4Ed centers.
The agreement was signed on Tuesday, August 22, by Mayor Herbert M. Bautista, representing the QC-LGU, and Ms. Ma. Teresa Camba, representing DICT, with Councilor Anthony Peter Crisologo, chair of the Council’s IT or cyber technology committee, and Reynald Paul Imjada, head of QC ITDO.
Although the city has already made efforts to provide computer literacy training to senior citizens and PWDs, as initiated by the Quezon City Public Library and some barangays, the signing of the MOA is seen to further expand the program to include out-of-school youth and adults (OSYA), women, teachers, overseas Filipino workers, and entrepreneurs.
The setting up of Tech4Ed center is also part of DICT’s e-Filipino-Technology for Economic Development Project which seeks to enhance socio-economic condition by providing inclusive growth.
