A partnership in the now-emerging online education has resulted in a transformation of classroom experience that is considered tops in the industry.

That collaboration between the Affordable Private Education Center, Inc., also known as APEC Schools, and Globe Telecom has resulted in a seamless digital experience through the provision of Google Chromebooks for students.

"The pandemic has brought to light the harsh reality about accessibility in the Philippines. Many communities still do not possess the digital tools they need to make education and work possible," shared Joie Lopez, Chief Executive Officer of APEC Schools.

“Our collaboration with Globe allows our institution to address this prevalent issue by providing students with access to affordable home internet, as well as Chromebook laptops for rent.”

APEC Schools—a subsidiary of iPEOPLE, which is a partnership between the Yuchengco Group of Companies and Ayala Corporation that now has 22 school branches across the Philippines, with more than 15,000 learners in both Junior and Senior High School. 

Together with Globe, the institution’s pivot towards online learning has allowed its vision of centering educational practices on technology to come full circle. APEC’s modern experience-based approach to learning enables students to seamlessly adapt to a digital world, making them perfectly placed to take on the new normal.

With students set to remain at home for the rest of the school year, APEC Schools developed initiatives such as APEC Flex to give students the capacity to learn through a homeschool curriculum.
