  • Globe myBusiness ProjectEd Awards Night: How Learning Is Boosted Through Technology
  • How does technology affect how we learn? How different is the learning process with our gadgets and gizmos, networks and digi-communities? Globe myBusiness wanted to draw the difference and see things from the perspective of the youth using the power of video.

    It is indisputable how technology has affected learning all around, and ProjectEd seeks to bring those changes to the forefront. ProjectEd is a nationwide video competition to all high school students. Students were asked to answer the question, “How is technology changing how you learn today?” via a three-minute video using only their mobile phone.

    Winners of Globe ProjectED with the judges and executives of Globe MyBusiness

    Globe received nearly 100 entries, each with its own signature style and creative stamp. In front of an extremely engaged audience of 250 high school students, head teachers, principals, Globe senior officers, and members of the press, the results were announced during the Globe ProjectEd Awards Night, held last Thursday, March 8, 2018 at the Maybank Performing Arts Auditorium. It was a celebration of all things video learning and “EduTainment.”

    The winners

    From the near-hundred entries, only ten were shown during the Globe ProjectEd Awards Night. After a careful review of all entries and stringent deliberation processes, an esteemed pool of judges led by award-winning filmmakers Emerson Reyes and Keith Sicat gave top marks to these three schools based on shareability on social media (30%), appropriateness (30%), and creativity (40%):

    GRAND PRIZE. University of the East Caloocan Senior High School brought home Php 50,000 in cash and an education package for their school worth Php 50,000. They are joined by executives of Globe MyBusiness (From L-R Debbie Obias, Michelle Tapia, Gil Genio, Derrick Heng).

    FIRST RUNNER-UP. University of the East Manila Senior High School took home Php 30,000 in cash and an education package for their school worth Php 30,000. Joining them are  Globe MyBusiness (From L-R Debbie Obias, Michelle Tapia, Gil Genio, Derrick Heng).

    SECOND RUNNER-UP. Pitogo High School bagged third, taking home Php 20,000 in cash and an education package for their school worth Php 20,000. They are joined by executives of Globe MyBusiness (From L-R Debbie Obias, Michelle Tapia, Gil Genio, Derrick Heng).

    Aside from a fun viewing of the exciting videos and celebrating the well-deserved awardees, guests from both media and students from different schools were also treated to insightful workshops from some of today’s video stalwarts.

    YouTube Content Creator Riva Quenery shared tips on “How I Make My Videos Viral,” while filmmaker and professor Emerson Reyes shared his craft on “Effectivity of Video Materials in Teaching and Learning.” In between sessions, rising pop band Ben & Ben treated the audience to fun renditions of today’s hot hits.

    What does it all mean

    Given how today’s digital landscape is moved by video, it is only right that education makes the most of the video revolution. What Globe’s ProjectEd proved is that students recognize the immense power and potential of hopping aboard the video wagon—and education should definitely follow suit.

    Globe CTIO Gil Genio and Chelle GrayDirector of Citizenship of Globe Telecom both highlighted how the inevitable merging of learning and technology is a sign of the present times. Genio further adds that “Globe continues to be committed to advocate for digital learning, and in particular video learning, reinforcing the message that you can learn anytime, anywhere using technology at your disposal.”

    Diving into the world of captivating video engagement and knowing what it takes to move your audiences may change learning and education altogether. Digitization is definitely the way of the future and Filipino students are primed and ready for the lesson plan.
