Mobile tech firm Cloudfone has linked up with local operator Globe Telecom for the donation of 1,200 units of Cloudpad Epic 8.9 tablets to be distributed to 80 public schools that are part of the Global Filipino Schools (GFS) program.
The ceremonial turnover, which was held late last year at the Andres Bonifacio Integrated School (ABIS) in Mandaluyong City, was attended by executives from Cloudfone and Globe.
Globe, with the help of Cloudfone, aims to establish by 2020 a GFS in each of the 226 divisions of the Department of Education nationwide. Through this initiative, Cloudfone and Globe want to promote e-learning by utilizing Cloudfone?s tablets as learning and teaching tools.
Teachers can use the Cloudpads as part of the school?s modern approach to integrated teaching in the classroom. This effort, the tech firm said, will set the stage for 21st century learning in the country.
Perfect for the classroom, the Cloudpad Epic 8.9 is a handheld, slate tablet that can be used in lieu of traditional laptops. With a unique ?crossover? technology feature, this tablet offers rich multimedia experience and an ideal productivity environment with Windows making it compatible with many other devices that may be used in the classroom.
Its wide 8.9-inch screen also offers crisp, full HD display, great for reading and watching videos, while the 1.8GHz Intel Atom processor promises consistent and powerful performance. Equipped with 32GB ROM and 2GB RAM, Cloudpad also ensures users hours of uninterrupted learning.
