The Connected Learning Community
by Fr. Jomar Legaspi
learn.ph Foundation

In this presentation, learn.ph will share over five years of experience in working with DepED schools (27 sites) all over the Philippines to realize a vision called the Connected Learning Community which is shared by learn.ph and its partner, Microsoft. To bring about this vision, we help create learning opportunities for today's students and tomorrow's knowledge workers in the Philippines by:

  • Partnering with other innovators in education and technology
  • Nurturing communities that connect educators with each other and with resources for using technology to enhance their teaching
  • Funding research and programs that provide access to technology and training to prepare students for tomorrow's careers
  • Developing powerful technology to help educators individualize learning plans, to encourage students to collaborate, and to meet institutions' needs to track and analyze information more effectively

We believe that using information and communication technology (ICT) in education can be a powerful catalyst in improving teaching and learning for all. Ultimately, education changes lives, families, communities, and nations. We strive to create sustainable long-term success models for educational change by bringing our resources, practices, and programs together in partnership with educational and government leaders.
