Viral Inequity

C OVID-19 Pandemic has reshaped how educators look at education. Institutions have started to adopt digital learning through the internet in response. Technology has been more accessible than ever allowing this paradigm to be applicable.

Or is it?

Technological inequity is still present in the Philippines, especially in underdeveloped regions with high population of poverty. Technological inequity is related to economic inequity after all. Albeit cellular phones capable of connecting in the internet is now essential with internet plans still costs at least One Thousand Pesos (1000 PHP) per month.

Majority of the populace subscribe to mobile data promos. These promos only have a fixed amount of data they can use. This limits to how much data they can use per subscription. Consequently, it also limits online education.

On average, only 310 minutes of video streaming is available for fifty pesos (50 PHP). This means online education which relies on video streaming is still expensive and inaccessible to the marginalized sector.

If Philippines is to transfer to Online Curriculum, technological inequity is now an educational welfare issue the government must act on.
