Google Philippines touts teen campaign promoting digital literacy | Sun Star Manila

The Reconnect Project bags the top prize in Google’s search for new Web Rangers

MANILA -- Google Philippines awarded the top prize for its Webrangers initiative to a group of five students behind The Reconnect Project campaign.
The Webrangers program aims to promote digital literacy and the meaningful use of the internet among Filipino teens.

The five students -- Meoni Bergara from University of the Philippines-Diliman, Reiz Tamboong and Isabel Jose from Miriam College High School, John Oliver Dysanco from Enderun Colleges, and Ralph del Mundo from Polytechnic University of the Philippines Senior High School -- were able to show how information is available on the internet but because of online distractions, it can be difficult to find.

The students started with a sticky note activity where the teens asked their schoolmates to write down information that is useful for fellow students to learn more about and to post these examples on the wall.

In the coming days, as people were adding more content useful for students, the team then covered these notes with other sticky notes filled with examples of distracting content and activities normally encountered online.

Volunteers were then asked by the team to go through the pile of sticky notes to look for the useful information initially posted there. Because the important data was covered by all sorts of distracting sticky notes, the students realized that they do spend a lot of time online on things that divert their attention from getting information that can help them out. This activity illustrated that teens can use the Internet to enrich their lives if they don’t let themselves get distracted by the clutter they encounter online.

Because the Web Rangers wanted to provide a space for their peers to connect with each other and share useful information, they created a websitehttp://thereconnectproject.weebly.com filled with resources and content about education, health and lifestyle, and technology. Anyone can contribute to the website, which the students moderate.

This year, more than 60 Web Rangers, aged 14-21, were chosen from almost 200 applicants from Metro Manila. They also attended a one-day workshop last September with partner agencies Department of Trade and Industry and Dentsu JaymeSyfu.

“Through this program, we have seen how creative and dedicated the Filipino youth can be if given the right tools to advocate for a good cause like digital literacy. We’ve seen promising entries and we are pleased that they were able to use the internet in turning creative ideas into something that can influence their peers,” said Gail Tan, Google Philippines Head of Communications and Public Affairs.

The participants were trained to make effective campaigns on digital literacy and were given three weeks to produce a campaign which would serve as their entry to the competition.

“We are glad to be part of this initiative by Google Philippines in educating the youth about digital literacy. We would like to congratulate the winners in coming up with such creative and meaningful campaigns. We also hope that this initiative will encourage Filipino teens to become entrepreneurs in the digital economy and become a strong contributor to the country’s growth and development,” said Undersecretary Nora K. Terrado, Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Industry Promotion Group. (AP)

BA Communication students participate in Project 9.0

As part of Miriam College’s 90th anniversary celebration, an ‘underground’ activity known as “Project 9.0” was organized by the Office of the President involving two teams from the High School and from the College. The latter was represented by BA Communication students Paola Neyra, Claire Uy, Elaine Nasi, and Patricia Ortile. 

The project proposals were presented to and judged by Miriam College President Dr. Rosario Lapus, Director for Innovation Development and High School Principal Dr. Edizon A. Fermin, Marketing and Communications Head Romualdo A. Romualdo, Communications and Media Coordinator Dahl Bennett, and Special Project Coordinator Mian Arcega last August 12, 2016 at the Board Room.

Both teams were tasked to come up with a high-impact, low-cost, and feasible project. After careful deliberation, two ideas were picked from the HEU that included a Post-It installation wherein students wrote short messages to the future MC community. These messages were posted on tarpaulins located in the Lower School, Middle School, High School, College, Miriam Adult Education, and Southeast Asian Institute for the Deaf. The Post-Its were later gathered in a jar to be opened after a couple of years for reflection. 

The other idea highlights the four core values of Miriam College – truth, justice, peace, and integrity of creation —and will be reflected in feel-good statements incorporated in tricycle stickers which will be distributed at the end of this year.

Project 9.0 was an unforgettable experience for the Communication students who met the challenge with flying colors. By Denise Villalobos, BA Comm

MCHS Glee Club brings home two gold diplomas from Rome

They’ve done it again! The Miriam College High School Glee Club adds another feather to its cap when it bagged two Gold Diplomas at the 7th Musica Eterna a Roma Choral Competition held in Rome, Italy, last July 1 to 5.

Led by its conductor Nancy Roman, the 45-member team brought home the Diploma d’Oro Level III in the Youth Choirs of Equal Voices category and the Diploma d’Oro Level II in the Sacred Music Female Choir category. 

From the 16 competing international choirs, the Miriam College High School Glee Club, together with other five choirs, qualified for the Grand Prize competition concert.

In support of the group, the lone Asian choir in the competition, Philippine Ambassador to Italy Domingo P. Nolasco attended the Grand Prize Concert at the Basilica di Sant’Andrea della Valle. 

Amb. Nolasco congratulated and commended the group for making the Filipinos proud and for showcasing Filipino talent and creativity to the Italian public.

Apart from the performing during the competition, the girls had the opportunity to showcase their talents in other venues, said Roman. “Since there were fewer choirs, the girls had more opportunities to perform in Rome. We were one of the choirs which participated in the opening ceremony. We also had a concert with the Morehead State University Chamber Choir in Pompeii,” shared Roman. 

The group was the only choir from Asia who qualified in the competition. Other participating choirs were from Austria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Poland, Serbia, Sweden, USA and Ukraine.

MCHS Glee Club is set to sing the songs they performed in Rome on the day of the launch of the Henry Sy, Sr. Innovation Center on Sept. 7.
