The start of the academic school year proved challenging for students, parents, and educators. After years of face to face interactions in classrooms, everyone had to adjust by going online. This has placed great pressure on everyone involved, especially when connectivity issues begin to impact the overall learning experience. To address this crisis, a growing list of learning institutions have partnered with Globe for its Prepaid Internet Kit for Education.
“Learning institutions have realized that a reliable internet partner is an effective tool for education. Globe is helping them seamlessly adapt to the changing times with an affordable and reliable device that will help both students and teachers in distance learning,” says Mark Abalos, Globe Segment Head for Education.
The prepaid kit comes with a WiFi modem that can support online learning. For just P999 per device, students have access to Globe’s nationwide LTE and 3G networks. Each kit comes with a free 10GB data allocation valid for seven days. It is easy to install and has no monthly fees, so students can plug in the device and get started on online classes. It can connect multiple users so families can share it.
Moreover, Globe customized affordable mySchoolSURF internet promos with large data allocations. For just P199 a week, students get 34GB of data, including 6GB of open access data and 4GB daily for learning, productivity, and communication apps like Canva, Course Hero, and Canvas.
To date, over 90,000 students and teachers from Ateneo de Davao University, Arellano University, Cebu Technological University, STI, De La Salle University, APEC Schools, Mapua University, National University, and the PHINMA Education Network (Araullo University and Cagayan de Oro College) enjoy mySchoolSURF offers.
The Prepaid Internet Kit for Education is designed to help educators and parents integrate technology and digitally transform learning amid the COVID-19 crisis. As the education sector continues to adjust to the pandemic, Globe is strengthening its position as the country’s most reliable and trusted connectivity and ICT solutions partner for 21st-century learning.
On a much larger scale, Globe supports the call of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) to address UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs). Globe has been committed to particularly uphold 10 UNSDGs, which included Education, to help address the country's most pressing social and environmental issues.
