Hi! Welcome to “Enriching Digital Learning”, the fourth course of the Facebook Digital Tayo CARE Program on Habi Plus.

This course is part of a series of courses we designed in collaboration with Facebook Digital Tayo to support teachers in educating future generations of learners with care, and ensuring that they experience creative, accessible, responsible and enriching learning experiences.

This course is for teachers who want to learn more about how to maintain digital connections through technology – starting with a review of communication processes and tech tools that would help us empathize and stay connected with education stakeholders, as well as maximizing assessment to support student learning.

Please read through the information after this video / for other reminders and things you need to know. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to the course facilitators through their contact details below.

See you in our course, and happy learning!
