 6】As COVID-19 continues to affect the return of students
and teachers to classrooms, the corporate social responsibility arm of BDO
Unibank has been finding ways to develop innovative learning materials that
can be easily accessed online and shared offline. 

BDO Foundation partnered with the Department of Education (DepEd) and Huawei
Philippines for the development of supplemental learning materials that
integrate key concepts into the teaching of Science and Mathematics in schools
across the country.

The partnership was officially launched in a virtual event witnessed by BDO
Unibank and BDO Foundation chairperson Teresita Sy-Coson, BDO Foundation
president Mario A. Deriquito, and BDO Foundation trustee Lucy Co Dy. Also in
attendance were DepEd secretary Leonor Magtolis-Briones, DepEd undersecretary
Diosdado San Antonio, DepEd undersecretary Tonisito Umali and Huawei
Philippines vice president Daniel Guo.

The launch was highlighted by the ceremonial signing of the memorandum of
agreement for the implementation of the program dubbed the Search for the Best
Supplemental Learning Materials in the Teaching of Defined Key Concepts in
Science and Mathematics.

The nationwide competition will invite participants composed of public
elementary and high school teachers to develop learning modules that integrate
financial literacy into the teaching of Science and Math. The most outstanding
entries will receive recognition and will be uploaded on the DepEd online
learning portal, where they can be readily downloaded by teachers and students
all over the country.

According to DepEd secretary Briones, “This is very significant for us. We
cannot take for granted the importance of Math and Science in basic education.
Our educators and learners are fortunate because new materials will be
launched to make Math and Science interesting, exciting and full of
discoveries and challenges. I would like to thank BDO Foundation and Huawei
Philippines for supporting this project.”

The initiative is in line with the shared advocacy of the foundation, DepEd
and Huawei—touted as the global leader in information and communications
technology infrastructure and smart devices—to promote financial inclusion
among educators and learners. The contest supports the partners’ goal to
institutionalize financial education in DepEd’s K to 12 curriculum.
