Abstract

The E-learning Outreach Program is a multisectoral, collaborative, and commitment-driven action research that focuses on providing innovative, useful and interactive information literacy coursework for public elementary pupils. It sets to benchmark from existing e-learning program initiated by Hope Street Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides free cutting-edge e-learning cybrary resources for public elementary pupils in Makati City. From this model and through multi-stakeholders’ approach, the research project embarked on a participative action research to evaluate, modify, enrich and strengthen e-learning outreach program available through “transfer of technology” and “sharing of technical, pegadogical and experiential resources” for the benefit of public elementary pupils. This is a 2-year project under the De La Salle University's Challenge Grant Research Program. 

The research project answered the following research questions:
a) How do we create and sustain a workable, viable and sustainable Information and Communication Technology model (E-learning Outreach model) for public primary education?
b) What are the best features and success stories of an E-learning Outreach initiative undertaken by non-profit organizations that can be replicated in primary public education?
c) From assessing the impact, relevance, and strategic advantage of piloting an E-learning station catering to public kindergarten and public elementary pupils, how can there be a “transfer of technology” and “sharing of technical, pedagogical and experential resources” using a dynamic stakeholders’ approach and public-private partnerships?
d) What are the policy implications of the research project in supplementing the ICT4E (Information & Communication Technology for Education) initiatives of the Department of Education in line with its Education for All program and with the Millenium Development Goals of Universal Access to Education of the United Nations?
