These are computer housed in brightly colored, kid-friendly Little Tikes furniture and equipped with educational software to help children learn and explore concepts in math, science, and language. The computers can also help children learn important socialization skills such as working together and sharing. The KidSmart Early Learning Program is a global IBM corporate citizenship initiative that encourages student achievement and gives equal opportunity to those who do not have access to technology. Since IBM started deploying KidSmart Early Learning Program in the country in 2000, IBM has donated 400 Young Explorer Learning units to 375 schools/day care centers and 16 institutions and museums, benefiting more than 800,000 young children from remote to underprivileged areas of towns and cities across the nation. The Asia Pacific College (APC) serves as the official training partner for the IBM KidSmart Early Learning program in the Philippines, training almost 1,700 public teachers and administrators here so far. Worldwide, IBM has invested $133 million into the KidSmart Early Learning Program, donating more than 64,000 Young Explorers to schools and nonprofit organizations in 60 countries, reaching more than 105,000 teachers and more than 10 million students. ]]>
