Teachers in Panay have gone Google!

Jul 28, 2014 by

The recently concluded Google Teachers Workshop in Panay touched a vast base of Ilonggo teachers who are intent on learning, sharing, and collaborating — all for the sake of empowering each other. Google Educator Groups (GEG) Philippines was at the helm of this workshop and around 300 teachers came to experience this awesome learning event. I am doubly honored to be there to assist the trainers, the event organizers, and the officials from Google. As the Chapter Leader of GEG Iloilo, it was but appropriate that I help in bringing in the teachers and facilitate the success of this endeavor. The Department of Education Region VI was also instrumental in tapping the teachers coming from the various towns outside the city. We had teachers coming all the way from Gigantes Island, Antique Province, Kalibo, Roxas City, Guimaras Province and Bacolod City. We definitely had representation from all provinces in the region!

To sustain the exciting programs of GEG Philippines, our community in Iloilo can offer our Iloilo teachers a myriad of events (either face-to-face or online) in the coming months. This is definitely just the beginning of a fruitful future ahead for teachers with the support of Google.
