The launching of modern technologies as part of the learning process will help in enhancing the children’s education in poor provinces such as Samar. With the computers that were given by Intel Technology Philippines, there were four public schools in Samar’s two cities now have computer laboratories with connections in Internet that encourage the students to study further.

The days are gone when instructors have to pen lessons on the chalkboard, spread out a Manila paper in order to present picture cards or show a graph. With just a press of a key or a tick on a keyboard in a Powerpoint presentation, the illustration or text would right away come out on a screen. The schools in Samar that received the Intel-given computers are the San Policarpo National High School, Samar National High School in Catbalogan City, Oquendo National High School, and Calbayog City National High School. These schools are in Calbayog City, approximately 180 kilometres north of Tacloban City.

The Samar National High School got 50 computers the previous year from the Intel Philippines through its programme ‘Intel Teach’. The Oquendo National High School got 60 computers while the San Policarpo National High School and Calbayog City National High School got 55 computers each. Ma. Teresa L. Pacis, external communications manager for corporate affairs of Intel Technology Philippines Inc. said, “Intel Teach, which we implement globally, is part of the corporate social responsibility program [of Intel]”.
