‘This isKwela’ for all: Globe launches online education community page


In line with its goal to help bring inclusive, accessible and safe learning solutions for Filipinos, Globe has launched a new online education community that aims to spark meaningful and inspiring conversations to elevate learning across digital platforms.

 

Globe is encouraging people of all ages to be part of its “This isKwela” Facebook Community, a hub that supports learning across different life stages and provides a new online space for members to meet new friends, learn new information, sharpen skills, and share knowledge.

 



The community is beneficial to many, from students wanting to supplement formal schooling 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. Those interested to learn more can join the online community by visiting https://www.facebook.com/groups/thisiskwela/?ref=share .

 

Globe strongly supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, particularly UN SDG No. 4, which ensures inclusive and equitable quality education and promotes lifelong learning opportunities for all. The company is committed to upholding the United Nations Global Compact principles and 10 UN SDGs.
