The Department of Education (DepEd) of Philippines has launched the second mobile school to make ICT based education more accessible to students and teachers in schools without computer laboratories.
A Mobile School is an Isuzu 50-seater roving bus managed by an instructor. A mobile School is equipped with 27 units of networked multimedia computers with broadband Internet connection. These computers are equipped with DVD-CD writers, LCD monitors, and sound system. DepEd had launched the first mobile school in January, 2007 and it has already benefited 6,000 students and visited 71 sites in Luzon. This joint initiative, coursed through DepEd's Adopt-a-School Program, also aims to enhance computer literacy among public school teachers.
