  • iSchools = 360 + 320 + 320 eSkwela = has 21 Centers with targeted 220++ by 2010 Content Development = TLE, IPs, culture and arts, Animation, English Proficiency for 4 th year students Most of the HCD projects: in cooperation with SUCs of the eQuality Program since CICT-HCDG has no local presence maximizes local tie-ups since these beneficiary communities are the feeder schools of the SUCs eQuality Program – 71 of 111 SUCs – 37 are active partners for the iSchools Project CeCs = Community eCenters – physical centers that broaden ICT access to the people Regional ICT Centers – to be incubated in the SUCs, to work closely with CICT and RITECCs Meant to provide the needed ICT expertise (consultancy, development, incubation, etc.) and capability-building needs of the region
  • eSkwela is not just about the e-learning modules. Let me clarify that. It covers several components: Infra to be sourced by the community either from scratch or through a shared facility like an internet café or a school laboratory or a Community eCenter computers (desktops or laptops or netbooks) can number anywhere from 4 to 20 (or even 40); internet connection which is important as you will see in the instructional model, space, utilities, fixtures The customized instructional model which will be explained on the next slide – this covers the module guides, e-modules, and the learning management system We require that the learning facilitators are trained both in ALS and eSkwela – they should foremost be ALS implementers and computer users. Training is crucial as is handholding throughout the implementation phase – e-learning is not something that you just learn in a few days, it’s a habit that you need to internalize. Monitoring and evaluation is likewise essential – primarily because we want to look into the good practices as well as the challenges so that we could offer our assistance or learn from these Community support is crucial primarily for sustainability – the community must “own and love” the project – may be financial sustainability (utilities, space, etc.) or providing “big brother” support to learners or tying them up with community activities, even PESO activities – may be LGU, NGO, civic org, individuals
  • a means for “transformed lives”: towards a “better me” and a brighter future
  • Major strategies employed by the project team: Cautious expansion – we wanted to make sure that the centers would be more or less ready enough to implement the project, given that it has several components to look into Multi-stakeholder approach – we always believed in the power of synergy and community ownership Inclusive / consultative and collaborative efforts… - we have always involved BALS, the implementers, and other stakeholders in the things that we decide on and do; any recommendations for enhancement go through a cycle of consultation Capability building among stakeholders – it is essential in making sure that the implementers would have an understanding of what eSkwela is all about and what to actually do; handholding is likewise highly encouraged Experts tapped – we admit that we do not know nor can do everything; and as mentioned, we believe in the power of synergy in bringing eSkwela to life Openness, flexibility, experimentation – we believe in continuous enhancement and learning from others

  • Additional Interventions
    • Monitoring & Evaluation mechanisms: site operations and use of Instructional Model
    • Empowered Project Team
    • Designation & Training of ALS implementers as:
      • Regional Coordinators
      • National Trainers for Learning Facilitators
      • Regional Trainers for Network Administrators
    • Management Training for Center Managers
    • Technical Training for Network Administrators
  • PHYSICAL TARGETS AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS (based on the Project LogFrame) as of 29 April 2011 target accomplished slippage Functional customized ICT4E (ALS) Instructional model Enhanced Framework 1 1 0% eModules & corresponding Module Guides (A&E) developedv (to be used for free) 283 207 (148 of which have been certified by BALS) 27% eModules (others: livelihood & CILC) developed (to be used for free) 61 10 84% Mature/Replicable center model eSkwela Franchise Manual 1 (beta version) 40% Roadshows conducted for advocacy 17 27 0% Operational sites (mostly community initiated) 106 90 + 15 15% Trained/qualified implementers on prescribed instructional model and center operations Training Designs 7 7 0% Trained field implementers 1,884 1,718 9% Established management and M&E mechanisms and tools Mechanisms 4 4 0% Automated Systems 2 2 0%
  • Challenges
    • Resistance and apprehension to changes in roles and strategies
      • facilitation of learning
      • exploration and experimentation must become habitual
    • Need for stronger advocacy on ALS and ICT in Education (actual utilization instead of mere deployment)
    • Recognition of maturity models: ICT competence-and-use, pedagogical/andragogical practices, community-building
    • Focus on A&E Test rather than life skills
    • Focus on technical skills rather than content (quality) of outputs
    • Changes take time
      • always consider maturity models and handholding mechanisms
      • still a long way to go…
    • Site Implementers:
      • less work = less routine admin work, more work = more facilitative
      • more open to explore and innovate
      • appreciation of monitoring and handholding interventions; of synergy and community spirit/ support groups
    • Learners: free educ, learning is FUN , more engaged, creative, excited; blended approach preferred
      • flexible, better access to choices (LMS), easier implementation of self-paced learning
    • ICT-supported PBL = real-life application + 21st C skills + additional income-generating skill
    A&E Test Performance eSkwela Average National Average Feb 2008 (4 sites) 57% 29% Oct 2008 (5 sites) 65% 23% Oct 2009 (partial: 9 sites) 46% 21% Oct 2010 (partial: 16 sites) 63% 33%
