Connected.ph is a growing endeavor of MBC with partner organizations to contribute to the continuing training of teachers in various Philippine schools through the establishment of computer laboratories. Intel, which also maintains its own educational project, is likewise extending its network facilities through the Department of Educations Adopt-A-School project to spread the word about the competition to the countrys various secondary public schools. …
