Smart partners with Acer to provide students with an e-Learning Solutions Bundle
Smart has partnered with Acer to help students participate in this year’s online classes with an e-learning solution bundle.
With their partnership, parents can avail of the Smart School Bundle, consisting of an Acer Aspire 5 laptop and Smart Bro LTE Pocket WiFi.
The Acer Aspire 5 features a 14-inch display, 8th Generation Intel Core i3-8130U, 8GB RAM, a 128GB SSD, and 1TB HDD. It comes with Windows 10 Home preinstalled, as well as other features that help students fulfill their requirements. The Smart Bro LTE Pocket WiFi, on the other hand, can help students connect to the internet via Smart’s LTE network.
Both the Acer Aspire 5 and Smart Bro LTE Pocket WiFi are compliant with the Department of Education’s minimum specifications for devices for distance learning. Additionally, the bundle may also be used by teachers, employees, and other professionals working from home.
“We believe that e-learning is an important building block under the new normal – where education will be driven largely by digital tools and products. We hope that through this partnership, we can help students make a smooth transition to distance learning, and help make sure that no learner is left behind,” said Precy P. Katigbak, FVP and Head of National Key Accounts at Smart.
“It has always been our mission to enable Filipino students by providing them the tools that they need in their education. With this partnership, we hope to give them not only the means to do their schoolwork, but also the connectivity through Smart’s network, so that students can continue to learn amid the pandemic,” said Manuel Wong, Managing Director at Acer Philippines.
