(1996-2005) –computerization project and
the School of the Future project
-introduced use of information technology
in the tecahing and learning process,
educational management and operations
Previous to the adoption of this policy, DepEd
introduced the use of radio broadcast in
education in the 1960s and eductaional
television in the 1970s



Through the help of Channel 4, the tulong
Aral program of the 1980s was the first major
initiative that combined the use of radio and
tv in public basic education
Private sector initiatives: Kulit Bulilit and
Batibot (these edutainment initiatives were
not based on curriculum)
Private-public partnership in educational TV
started in the 1990s with ABS-CBN
Foundation’s Sine’Skwela and Foundation to
Unpgrade Science Education’s Continuing
Studies through Television (FUSE-CONSTEL)-



Sine’Skwela – a curriculum based children’s
TV Program on Elementary Science
FUSE-CONSTEL –a teacher training program
for high school teachers in English, Science
and Math
Recently, the Philippine Government has
shown commitment to ICT in education:
-stressed the importance of ICT in improving education
in the country.
-increased adoption of ICT across education system
The Project iDEP
 iDEP is an acronym for Internet-based
Distance Education Program. It is a creative
and innovative program for secondary
students and it is run by the Bureau of
Secondary Education (BSE) of the Department
of Education (DepEd) of the Republic of the
Philippines. The project aims to develop
functionally literate learners which are are
also aligned with the goals of Education For
All (EFA).
Specifically, it aims to increase
participation rate and decrease Drop
out rate. The program offers formal
secondary eductaion to qualifying
students using Internet-based
technologies. The use of Internetbased teachnologies enables
particular accredited secondary
schools to create and manage classes
completely on-line.

Internet-based learning which makes learning
faster, exciting and focused has serious
limitation.


Being electronic, it is dependent on electricity.
Any power interruption can shut down its
operations. Moreover, it is not applicable to farflung areas that have no electricity.
If the distance learner has no personal computer,
then he has to depend on computers in school,
which charge fee that he/she cannot afford.
“Education is the key to the long-term
problems of the country. If we fix basic
education, we fix the long-term problems of
the country. And if we fix the country’s
problems, we will build a truly strong society.

-Pres. Benigno Simeon C. Aquino III

Filipino learners, in order to be globally
competitive, need to develop 21st century core
skills( digital age literacy, inventive thinking,
effective communication, and high productivity)
and be functionally literate.
Aside from the development of 21st century
core skills, the extended high school program
should be packaged for the preparation of
students for career and higher education. This
is because secondary education is designed
primarily to provide the transition from school
to work and from school to further learning.

The curriculum shall be designed to provide a
blended career and college preparatory
program. Putting the two on the same level
and blending them will enhance the seamless
relationship between career and higher
education and give them equal social and
economic value.
