To spark meaningful and inspiring conversations to elevate learning across digital platforms, a new online education community that promotes inclusive, accessible, and safe learning solutions for Filipinos was launched.

Dubbed as “This isKwela,” the new online education page was launched by Globe and accessible on Facebook.

The new Facebook Community is a hub that supports learning across different life stages and provides a new online space for members to meet new friends, learn new information, sharpen skills, and share knowledge.

As the community is beneficial to many --- from students wanting to supplement formal schooling to professionals seeking information for work --- Globe is encouraging the public to be part of the education community because it is open to all ages.

“With more people joining and participating in online communities, Globe aims to build an inclusive social hub that serves as an alternative learning community for anyone who wants to do lifelong learning,” Globe Chief Sustainability Officer and SVP for Corporate Communications Yoly Crisanto.

Aside from those who need upskilling, the new education community page can cater even to the elderly who want to learn more about digital technology and applications.

Experts on key subjects are available to assist community members such as Angelo Sicat, a teacher and creator of practical and easy-to-digest English language learning topics on TikTok; Immanuel Maglasang, the man behind online channel Science Kwela; Cipriano Romeral, Jr., a math expert who has conducted lectures for the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET); and Teacher Maureen Madiano, a licensed teacher and content creator who teaches basic English and Filipino lessons on different social media platforms.

Globe said that “This isKwela” is timely as more people are embracing “new normal” learning via digital platforms, such as online classes, e-libraries, and webinars, among others.

“This isKwela” is part of GoLearn which is a unified initiative aimed at helping the country achieve 21st century learning.

GoLearn aims to open doors to a brighter future by promoting continuous learning and further bridging digital gaps in the Philippine education landscape via access to connectivity, learning platforms, and other solutions.
