Ongoing coordination of both agencies will be strengthened to be able to launch the Tech4ED program soon to the ICCs/IPs of Porac, Pampanga. DICT’s Tech4ED will not only focus on the provision of ICT hub but also in the provision of ICT related capability building activities and trainings to the community. In our generation where we can maximize the use of technology, the government extends its assistance to our IPs to be able to adapt in the trend where the ICT advances in the midst of pandemic.
