In partnership with Globe, 1,200 Cloudpad Epic 8.9 devices were distributed to 80 selected beneficiary public schools nationwide that are part of the Global Filipino Schools (GFS) program. As part of Globe’s initiative, GFS is a long-term educational program that seeks to transform selected public schools into centers of ICT (information and communications technology) excellence. By 2020, Globe, with the help of Cloudfone, aims to establish GFS in each of the 226 DepEd divisions nationwide. Through these efforts, Cloudfone and Globe aim to promote e-learning by utilizing Cloudfone’s tablets as learning/teaching tools for academic institutions and their hardworking teachers and students.
Through Cloudfone’s wide range of powerful devices, students can now enjoy better connectivity and gain access to more online educational sources. On the other hand, teachers may also use Cloudpads as part of the school’s new and modern approach to integrated teaching in the classroom. This effort to use advanced technologies, an important step forward for the participating institutions and education sector as a whole, as this sets the stage for 21st century learning.
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 the best of both worlds - rich multimedia experience care of Android, 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” 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 ensures users hours of seamless fun and learning. Indeed, the Cloudpad EPIC 8.9 is a perfect tool for knowledge-building.
The first ceremonial turnover was held last Nov. 28, 2016 at the Andres Bonifacio Integrated School (ABIS) in Mandaluyong with Patricia Cristina P. Magnaye of Cloudfone’s Corporate Communications team and volunteers: Annaluna Magnaye, Maynard Guinucay, Michelle Villafuerte, Carla Braganza, Jesper Ong, Michael Espeña, Cathlyn Dolor Pavia and Janis Bauto where Cloudfone and Globe gave tabet units to the academe.
In the coming year, Cloudfone looks forward to distributing more units to several other public schools that have been chosen as the beneficiaries of the Global Filipino School Program (GFS), in hopes of empowering a digital lifestyle through digital learning.
