Sarangani LGU donates LR on Wheels antennas to DepEd

ALABEL, Sarangani (July 18, 2022) – The provincial government of Sarangani turned over 100 units of antennas for Learning Resources on Wifi Hub for Expanded e-Learning in Sarangani or LR on Wheels to the Department of Education Sarangani Division.

The antennas, which amount to Php150,000, will be used in the continuous implementation of LR on Wheels in Sarangani.

The turnover was held on July 18 during the flag-raising ceremony at the Capitol grounds and was initiated by Provincial Administrator Atty. Ryan Jay Ramos, along with heads of offices of the Capitol, to the LR on Wheels working committee of DepEd Sarangani.

LR on Wheels is an innovation of DepEd Sarangani to make e-learning possible for far-flung villages in the province, particularly those outside of the service coverage of major telecommunications companies and internet service providers.

It utilizes an offline learning management system broadcast over an access point through an intranet where learners can hook their gadgets in order to access learning materials like digital copies of learning modules, interactive worksheets, and videos.

The project, which was launched in 2020, was authored by Roy Detoyato, Information Technology Officer of DepEd Sarangani.

It was established to eliminate one major concern in e-learning which is internet connection, and supports the digitalization of today’s learning process.

This innovation of Sarangani province is also now being replicated in other parts of the country like South Cotabato, Batangas, Palawan, and many others. (Jake Narte-Jori Mae Samillano/SARANGANI PROVINCIAL INFORMATION OFFICE)
