Schools around the world are harnessing the power of technology to close learning gaps caused by the pandemic and meet the diverse needs of students.
PHINMA Education, a fast-growing network of academic institutions in Southeast Asia, has accomplished this goal, through its collaboration with Globe.
Globe, through its enterprise arm, customized a mobile plan called Globe PHINMA Educ Exclusive, which enables PHINMA Education to develop a hybrid learning system that efficiently combines printed modules with remote virtual coaching.
This exclusive mobile package is powered by Globe Load Up, a mobile loading solution that lets schools send data allocations to students, faculty, and staff conveniently, with automated bulk sending and convenient top-up; manage their connectivity; distribute internet load to students, faculty and staff; and provide data allocations for learning apps like Google Workspace, YouTube for Learning, Facebook Messenger, and Microsoft Office 365.
The initiative allowed enrolled students to keep pace with changes in the way they learn as the organization embraced technology that ensures the continuity of quality education.
PHINMA Education, a fast-growing network of academic institutions in Southeast Asia, operates nine schools in the Philippines and one in Indonesia under a brand of education that is responsive to the needs, resources, and aspirations of first-generation college students from low-income households.
In 2020, they introduced two learning systems—Flex Learning, which allowed students to return to school once the government eased pandemic protocols, and Remote and Distance Learning (RaD Learning), an entirely home-based learning setup. Both programs relied on printed materials and strong teacher and peer support through mobile data.
