ABOUT 12,000 public school students in 6,000 households in San Juan had their free fiber optic internet connection fully activated this Friday, a year after its installation, the city government said in a statement. This developed after the local government partnered with internet service company Converge ICT Solution Inc. which also provided a learning management and communication system to help implement blended distance learning. The new system provides an application platform for students and teachers to manage their lessons, exams and homework. Teachers can also conduct their classes through the app. Mayor Francis Zamora said this would lessen students' burden on online learning. The Department of Information and Communications Technology turned over 12,500 tablets, 1,000 laptops and 1,000 pocket Wi-Fi to the city government to be distributed to K to 12 public school students.
