MC Online Hosts School Educators From The Philippines

As the preferred e-learning solutions provider in the Philippines, Marshall Cavendish Online (MC Online) was delighted to host school educators from the aforementioned country on 6th and 12th November 2012. The visits highlight the phenomenal success MC Online’s world-class e-learning solutions have been in the Philippines. This November, 88 enthusiastic Principals, Directors, Academic Coordinators and teachers from 65 Catholic Schools were treated to a mind-blowing experience of how Infocomm Technology (ICT) in education has ignited 21st Century learning in Singaporean schools. 
Delegates gained deep insights from the detailed presentations given by the host schools

The delegates were brought to visit Tampines Primary School and St Gabriel’s Primary School on November 6th and 12th respectively where they were given insightful presentations on the schools’ educational frameworks and the role ICT plays in enriching these frameworks for a holistic educational experience. The participants were then invited to observe and participate in ongoing lessons that featured lively students using ICT in class. The delegates were extremely impressed with how engaged and focused the students were and showered the lessons’ digital approach with praises.
