SMART Communication doing "Good Samaritan" for teachers and student

Smart program known as Smart School provides free training on creating web site for schools. They also provide free 50MB of server space and sub domain name for the School website. Domain and server on market value is P2000 annually. Configuring server and domain will cost the school another P1000 which is normally done by the web developer or web designer. So the the school have an initial saving amounting P3000 plus P500 for any site updates.

SMART have provided 10,000 teachers free training on ICT since 2004. They started to include the students in the training realizing the importance of the task in updating the site regularly. The students are expected to encourage other student in the content and design of the school websites while their teachers provides support for project continuity. Echoing of training is one of the SMART requirement.

Some testimonials:

After five days, I learned so much about how to create a website and how to edit and upload photos,” shared Salvador Fajardo who studies in Florentino Torres High School.

Maria Azariah Zosa, a fourth-year student at Marinduque High School, said she is proud of the website that she helped create.

I had fears and apprehensions, but I was also so excited about the training,” shared Lumen Alindogan who teaches in Gallanosa National High School (NHS).

I still remember when I was in Bohol during Information and Communication Technology Competition sponsored by STEP. I saw one student with a look of a farmer and dress like really one. What amazed me is his skills and knowledge using computer and internet. So i said to myself "MALAYO ANG MARARATING NG BATANG ITO"..

Thanks to all private companies that provide both Hardware, Software and Training support to DepED Teachers and to the student as well.
