VP’s ‘Bayanihan E-skwela’ now on YouTube, Facebook

Vice President Leni Robredo is looking to release an online video series for students to assist them in the shift to distance learning.

This, after her office launched the Bayanihan E-skwela initiative that features instructional video series for parents and teachers last Sunday, August 16.


The videos provide insights from academic experts on the changes in the education system under the new normal, including approaches and techniques for teaching and assisting students in different grade levels.

These were uploaded by batches on the Bayanihan E-skwela Youtube Channel and Facebook page.
“We will also upload later videos for children,” the vice president said.

Robredo’s office is also exploring ways to distribute these instructional videos to schools in far-flung areas, especially those that have no access to the internet.

“We will also produce USB so we can send it to these schools, so we will be looking for other partners that can help us in the distribution,” she said.
Note the initiative is a collaboration among academic experts, production houses, music composers, celebrities, and filmmakers, among others.  

Bayanihan E-skwela has so far uploaded videos that feature celebrities like Janine Gutierrez, Enchong Dee, and Saab Magalona who shared advice and tips for students.

Volunteer faculty members from the College of Education of the University of the Philippines (UP) - Diliman, the UP College of Music, and UP Integrated School; students of the UP Special Education Area under UPCEd; and teachers from Culiat Elementary School in Quezon City serve as experts for the video series.
