The local government unit of San Nicolas in Ilocos Norte inaugurated on Thursday its newly-refurbished “i-hub” or internet center to cater to its learners under the new normal education system.

Town Mayor Alfredo Valdez said the center, which is located beside the municipal hall building, is currently equipped with 12 computers with high-speed internet. Students who have no personal computer or other learning gadget can go and take turns in loading their learning modules at the facility.

According to Valdez, at least one unit of computer designed for differently abled person is also available at the municipal i-hub, as well as educational books and other learning references. It also has a cozy space for reading while coffee and other refreshments may be had at the adjacent cafeteria.

“We likewise have available space for other public or private schools if they have spare computers to be used by their students in our library,” he added.

To avoid overcrowding of students at the i-hub, the mayor said they will be clustering the barangays just like what they are doing at the San Nicolas public market and post a schedule for the learners in each village.

In addition to the i-hub, each barangay in San Nicolas town was also provided with a computer and printer where students can go anytime.

As the country continues to grapple with the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) health crisis, President Rodrigo Duterte has maintained his stand that there shall be no “face-to-face” classes in high-risk areas until a vaccine becomes available.

In Ilocos Norte, online class simulations are currently ongoing to prepare teachers and students for the opening of classes.

Local officials are also closely coordinating with the Department of Education to beef up the anticipated distance learning program for students.

One of the ongoing activities is the continuing upgrading of public libraries or i-hubs to make sure all students in the province have equal access to all learning modalities. (PNA)
