Thank you all so much for the support of Ms. Judy V. for ARALPINOY.ORG INC (Aral Pinoy). Our Aral Pinoy blog stays with www.aralpinoy.blogspot.com and the new web address redirects to it.
So join us and continue to support Aral Pinoy's journey as it tries in keeping you well-informed about its programs, projects activities and the progress it is making in cooperation with the Department of Education (DepEd) and National Youth Commision (NYC) through its Abot Alam www.abotalam.ph, a nationwide program with the vision of helping our community-based youth through opportunities for education, possible career and employment. It's a national strategy to organize efforts in integrating programs for our out-of-school youth (OSY).
At present, Aral Pinoy’s project is Aral Pinoy eSkwela Center (APEC), which is in partnership with Bureau of Alternative Learning System (BALS), Division of City Schools, Parañaque City, L.A. Realty Holdings Inc. and Barangay Don Bosco. APEC is housed at Room 202, 153 Executive Suites, Better Living Subdivision, Doña Soledad Avenue, Barangay Don Bosco, Bicutan, Parañaque City (beside Paranaque Doctors Hospital). APEC has a classroom and a computer laboratory to facilitate learning activities in the classroom and to apply what students will learn in their lecture and facilitate hands on learning in the computer laboratory.
APEC is based on the eSkwela Project, a word play on the Filipino equivalent of "school", which is a flagship project of the Commission on Information and Communications Technology (CICT), in partnership with DepED's Bureau of Alternative Learning System (BALS), that is envisioned to provide ICT-enhanced educational opportunities for Filipino out-of-school youth and adults (OSYAs).
The initiative responds directly to a national development priority and will bring elearning opportunities and ICT for learning resources to mobile teachers / instructional managers and out-of-school learners in the Philippines in an exciting, innovative, and locally meaningful way. Under this project, community-based e-Learning Centers or eSkwela Centers are being established around the country to conduct ICT-enhanced alternative education programs for interested individuals.
These centers serve as venues where out-of-school learners and other community members can learn new skills and competencies, review for the Accreditation and Equivalency (A&E) Exam of the DepEd-BALS, and/or help prepare learners to rejoin the formal school system, if so desired.
