COTABATO CITY — Technology — devices and software — has come a long way as a tool for learning, especially during the coronavirus pandemic that started in December 2019 in Wuhan City, China.
Devices such as laptops, tablets, smartphones, and others related hardware have become a mainstay in the “new normal” of learning as online education has taken deep roots.
Apparently recognizing this, the Ministry of Basic, Higher and Technical Education (MBHTE) has jumped on the bandwagon of the digital world, as it provided laptops for its 305 Islamic schools called “madaris” which are registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
The education head of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM), MILG Minister Mohagher M. Iqbal, naturally, is in full support of providing schools in the Bangsamoro region with devices such as laptops to make learning a bit easier.
On August 3, 2022, the MBHTE, one of the primary ministries of the Bangsamoro government, started distributing laptops to the SEC-register madaris (singular — madrasah).
The Ministry of Basic, Higher and Technical Education (MBHTE), through its Directorate General for Madaris Education (DGME), started distributing Tuesday, August 3, laptops to the 305 Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)-registered private madaris adopting Tahderiyyah Curriculum.
The provision of these laptops was part of the ministry’s programs for learning continuity in the region.
It can be recalled that last May and June 2022, the MBHTE also distributed school supplies, textbooks, and equipment to the private madaris and ISAL teacher-asaatidz, which included 15 child-sized tables and 30 chairs per madrasah, boxes of bond papers, and sets of Tahderiyyah teachers’ kits.
The first batch of distribution took place during the 2-day Orientation cum Workshop for the 243 private madrasah administrators in Cotabato City.
Meanwhile, the 2-day orientation aims to raise the quality of instruction in private madaris in compliance with the standard provided by the Department of Education and the MBHTE. (/)
