Want to meet new friends, learn new information, sharpen your skills, or share your knowledge online? You can do all these on Globe Telecom’s This isKwela Facebook Community, a new online education community that aims to spark meaningful and inspiring conversations to elevate learning across digital platforms.
The community is beneficial not only to students wanting to supplement formal schooling but also to professionals seeking information for work. It also helps those in need of upskilling—even the elderly who want to learn more about digital technology and applications.
Experts on key subjects are available to assist community members. They are Angelo Sicat, a teacher and creator of practical and easy-to-digest English language learning topics on TikTok; Immanuel Maglasang, the man behind online channel Science Kwela; Cipriano Romeral, Jr., a math expert who has conducted lectures for the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET); and Teacher Maureen Madiano, a licensed teacher and content creator who teaches basic English and Filipino lessons on different social media platforms.
“With more people joining and participating in online communities, Globe aims to build an inclusive social hub that serves as an alternative learning community for anyone who wants to do lifelong learning,” said Yoly Crisanto, Globe’s Chief Sustainability Officer and SVP for Corporate Communications.
Globe believes that This isKwela is timely as more people are embracing “new normal” learning via digital platforms, such as online classes, e-libraries and webinars, among others.
This isKwela is part of GoLearn, a unified initiative aimed at helping the country achieve 21st century learning. GoLearn aims to open doors to a brighter future by promoting continuous learning and further bridging digital gaps in the Philippine education landscape via access to connectivity, learning platforms, and other solutions.
