DepEd to provide printed materials to learners with no gadgets. The Department of Education (DepEd) assured all parents that they will provide printed modules or learning materials to learners with no gadgets and internet access.
The Education Department made this assurance to address the concerns of parents who might be forced to buy new gadgets or devices such as laptops, tablets, and smartphones just to ensure that their children will be able to participate in the new modes of learning delivery to be implemented by schools when classes start on August 24.
“Even if there’s no gadget or Internet, we are preparing printed learning modules for the learners and we will find ways so these can be delivered to their respective homes,” DepEd Undersecretary and Spokesperson Atty. Nepomuceno Malaluan said during a recent televised press briefing.
