London-based education technology company, Quipper, recently launched its “Back to School Campaign” and challenged schools and teachers in the primary level to use Quipper School, the company’s online education platform and fully utilize its numerous benefits.
Many schools responded, and New Era Elementary School emerged as the First Placer among schools in the primary level nationwide, and was awarded with IT-based learning devices such as a Tablet PC and wi-fi hotspot. Quipper launched Quipper School earlier this year and is now used by 5,000 teachers all over the Philippines. Quipper School helps teachers and students connect through available technology and use it in providing education lessons and assignments in an environment where students can enjoy and learn. Teachers and school administrators who use Quipper School can take advantage of the vast amount of K-12-aligned content that can be used for lessons and assignments. Teachers could also track those who have not done their assignments via Quipper School’s teacher portal, and could also give timely reminders so that no one gets left behind.
