DICT is now offering educational content online for free
The Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) is now offering free online educational content for kids under the Tech4ED project.
The content available came from Let’s Read, Asia’s free digital library for children. To start reading the free e-books, you will need to create an account for DICT’s Tech4ED project (instructions below).
From the main page, click on the eEdu Skills card and head over to the Let’s Read Section.
From here, you can browse through the entire Let’s Read library, with books containing both foreign (English, Mandarin, Japanese, etc.) and local (Filipino, Central Bikol, Cebuano, etc.) languages. Books are separated into reading levels as well as genres or tags to help you find what to read. After selecting a book to read, you can download it as either an EPUB or PDF.
There’s also a COVIBOOK written by Manuela Molina to support and reassure children regarding the COVID-19.
