Taguig Distributes Tablets to Public School Teachers
In honor of National Teachers' Month, the City of Taguig, led by Mayor Lani Cayetano, embarked on a remarkable initiative by distributing tablets equipped with digital accessories to public school teachers. The event took place on Friday, October 6, at the Taguig Convention Center.
A grand total of 6,700 Samsung Tab Galaxy 9 tablets, complete with keyboards and stylus pens, are slated for distribution to all teachers stationed in Taguig, including those in schools located in the EMBO barangays. During Friday's event, 103 Samsung Tab Galaxy 9 tablet sets were distributed to 49 principals, 52 teacher presidents, and DepEd SDS Dr. Alejandro G. Ibañez, all present at the Convention Hall. The remainder will be delivered and handed over to teachers in their respective schools.
These tablets are expected to play a pivotal role in enhancing the teaching experience for public school educators in the City. They will facilitate the creation of engaging lesson plans, streamline the recording of student grades, and enable teachers to adapt to the ever-evolving digital teaching landscape.
Mayor Lani Cayetano, in her address, underscored the indispensable role teachers play in achieving educational excellence. She emphasized the City of Taguig's unwavering commitment to supporting their professional development, recognizing the transformative impact they have on the city.
"The City of Taguig will always be dedicated to helping contribute to your professional development as each of you plays a pivotal role in what makes our city Transformative, Lively, and Caring," she expressed.
Mayor Cayetano also highlighted that Taguig consistently sets the standard in education, crediting this achievement to the dedication of its public school teachers. The tablet distribution initiative serves as just one of many expressions of gratitude toward these hardworking educators.
"More than anything else, sana makita ng mga guro natin ay hindi 'yung financial value ng mga itinurnover nating gifts. Sana ang mas makita ninyo ay ang genuine love, concern, and care ng inyong mapagkalingang lungsod ng Taguig," she added.
DEPED Schools Division Superintendent Dr. Alejandro G. Ibañez commended Taguig for its exceptional support of its educators, emphasizing the significance of this gesture.
"I'd like to underscore the level of uniqueness of Taguig in terms of the generous support. Wherever I go, this is the first that I encountered a local government providing the necessary educational support to our teachers, not just hundreds, one thousand, but even beyond, 6,000 teaching force in the Division of Taguig City and Pateros," he declared.
He also stressed the benefits of these devices for empowering and adapting Taguig's teaching force to the demands of the modern educational landscape.
"These gadgets will be beneficial especially in our direction of schools in the future, which requires the use of technology. Even in face-to-face, blended, and in the virtual world, if our teachers are equipped with the necessary technology, alinman ang sitwasyon, tuloy ang edukasyon," he declared.
Mr. Nolito Estilles, principal of President Diosdado Macapagal High School, expressed heartfelt gratitude to the City of Taguig and Mayor Lani for this valuable gift.
"Thank you so much, Ma'am Lani for this gadget na talaga namang very helpful lalo na para sa mga estudyante kasi syempre ang end goal naman natin is for the learners. So kapag ginamit ito ni teacher, mas magiging productive at mas mabilis ang transfer of learning ng mga lessons natin," he said. This initiative is indeed a testament to Taguig's commitment to the advancement of education and the welfare of its educators.
