More than a thousand schools have been granted computer labs since the iSchools program started in 2005. The CICT has allocated P1.1 billion for this program.
The ten new beneficiaries were selected from more than a hundred 100 other schools nationwide. These were evaluated by partner state universities and colleges (SUCs) to ensure their ICT-readiness.
In addition to hardware (computers, printers, scanners, screen projectors and wireless equipment), teachers in partner schools will undergo training Internet literacy, library management and website development, according to iSchools project manager Antonette Torres.
Schools will shoulder training expenses as part of their responsibilities.
The new iSchools partners include Siargao National College of Science and Technology Lab School, Sibugon Integrated School, Dapdap High School, Magara School of Philippine Craftsmen, Mambusao National High School, Tarlac National High School-Annex, San Isidro High School, Eastern Pangasinan Agricultural College, Estipona National High School, and Calatagan National High School.
The CICT is looking for at least two more partner schools this year, according to Torres.
