  • Hi Lizbeth. Magpunta ka sa local DepEd office na malapit sa inyo para magtanong tungkol sa Accreditation and Equivalency Test (A&E Test). May mga Community Learning Centers sila na pwede mong puntahan para makapag-aral pa muli. Tapos kung handa ka na, ipapa-eksam ka nila. Libre.

    Saan ka ba? kung may malapit na eSkwela Center sa inyo, ayos ding magpunta dun para computer-based ang pag-aaral mo. =)

    sana nakatulong ang sagot ko...

  2. 2. Ipagpatuloy natin ang programang ito dahil nakakatulong ito sa mga taong hindi nakapagtapos ng kanilang pag-aaral ng secondarya. Nakakatulong din ito upang mapalawakang kaalaman ng mga estudyante nila dahil ang kanilang ginagamit sa kanilang pagtuturo ay ang computer. Ang kanilang mga module ay madaling maintindihan dahil naipapaliwanag nito ng maayos at maganda. – Gigi Malate, 27, eSkwela-Tanauan Graduate 2011 There are still regrets over all the wasted time. I think if someone buoyed up my courage when I was younger, I would have a degree and a business by now. But over all, there is only hope – and fondness for what eSkwela helped me achieve. What I learned in my interactions with my fellow learners is that because all of us have gone through a lot in life, no matter what our ages are, we do not discriminate against one other. We are all learners, same as everybody else. And we do not let small things affect us anymore, because we all have a goal in sight: we all want to make our lives better. Because it is slammed doors no longer with a high school diploma in hand.” - Fe Corpuz, 43, eSkwela-SJDM Graduate 2008 Bilang mag-aaral ng ALS ang pinakapaborito kong karanasan ay ang nabigyan ako ng bagong pagkakataon na makapag-aral at matuto sa maraming bagay .Una, ay nagkaroon ako ng tiwala sa sarili ko ngayon, gayong noon ay sobrang wala akong tiwala sa sarili ko at laging sinasabi ko na hindi ko to kaya. Natuto akong makisalamuha sa ibat-ibang mga kapwa ko mag-aaral na may pagkakaisa at may pagtutulungan ang bawat isa. Nabigyan ako ng pagkakataon na matutunan ang paggamit ng computer sa pag-aaral at ang maturuan ng aming mga guro sa ibat-ibang aralin. Malaki ang pasasalamat ko dahil marami ang natutulungan ng programang ito lalo na sa mga gustong makapagtapos ng pag-aaral at isa na ako dito na nabigyan ng pag-asa na matapos ang aking pag-aaral… - Jessa Borja, 21, kasambahay, eSkwela-Holy Trinity QC Graduate 2011
  3. 3. 29“The excellent results and achievements demonstrate how important is convergence of the efforts tothe government and community to get better education. With this project, Out-of-school people havethe opportunity to be successful in society participating in an alternative way to complete the highschool level. …I believe this experience is challenging to [the] formal education in the Philippines inorder to reform the official curriculum and find other ways to improve the quality of Education.”Mr. Manuel Cok Aparcana, Peruvian Ministry of EducationOfficial comments on the eSkwela Project during the International Conference on APEC EducationFoundation-funded Projects 2008 “We all know that our formal education institutions only reach a minority of young Filipinos who should be in school. eSkwela is a perfect platform to go beyond the school system and reach those who are not in school, or even those beyond Philippine borders.” Luli Arroyo-Bernas, 2nd eSkwela Conference, April 2009 “The idea of computer-aided learning really excites them. And the fact that the lessons are offered for free – in these hard times, the fact that education can be available to them is something that our learners cherish a lot. Many of them have never even touched a computer before. Many of them had given up on ever coming back to school again. Many of them have abandoned their dreams. To say that they’re excited about going back to school again – and on computers, at that - is putting it mildly.” Vi Aruta, eSkwela learning facilitator, City of SJDM “We’ve talked with learners after they’ve graduated and passed the A&E tests, and some of them are exploring college, while others are coming back to our offices to look at employment opportunities. It’s heartening. We continue to support eSkwela because I know that we help a lot of drop-outs; we guide them (back to the path) of proper learning, and everybody is welcome. I hope that some other organizations, whether public or private, can support eSkwela as well, because it is a very good project, and it offers people hope.” Roberto Penialber, Jr., Head, Public Employment Services Office (PESO), City of San Jose del MonteThe e-learning modules have made teaching easier for us. Hindi na kami magbabasa kasi may voice-over yung modules kaya pinakikinggan na lang ng mga learners and then we explain. We don’t imposeon them to learn the computer right away. We teach them and let them learn on their own time. Yungmga matatanda one-on-one teaching ang ginagawa naming, some learn faster than the others. Peroyung mga younger learners, madalas ayaw na nila magpaturo kasi madali nilang natututunan yungpaggamit ng mga modules and they study on their own.Angelyn Malabanan, eSkwela Learning Facilitator, Loyola HeightsBarawid, R. in “Taking ALS to the Next Level” Learning Section, Manila Bulletin , 13 January 2011 Seeing lives transform from that of oblivion to one of hope through eSkwcla Project reminds us that our country-the Philippines-will one day rise up and be counted as among the countries which put prime importance to one of its valuable resources - the youth. The project gave us a new pair of eyes that sees beyond the portals of our University, and a heart that bleeds for passion for this group of people. For us, eSkwela became not just a project but a mission - a higher call. Lydia Pinili, Project Manager of the Bataan Peninsula State University Content Development team
