Tang and Edukasyon.PH team up to make distance learning fun for kids

The new school year is goind to be a whole lot different from the previous years because of COVID-19, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to be less fun and exciting as it used to be.

Learning from home is an entirely new experience from the traditional classroom setup. Apart from missing the opportunities to learn from social interactions, more distractions can be found at home such as computers, TVs, and many other external factors that may disrupt the learning process.

With the setup of distance learning being a new experience, many parents are looking for guidance on how to make the best out of their children’s learning experience at home.

To help moms bridge the gaps of distance learning and turn the home into a conducive learning environment, TANG, in partnership with Edukasyon.ph, launches Prepared with TANG: Get Ready for Distance Learning. 

This free online learning platform gives moms, dads, and guardians insights about distance learning and how they can play a more active role in their child’s education.

The platform will provide useful tips and simple steps to enhance their child’s learning experience at home, such as:

  • Providing motivation when child feels bored or tired during lessons;
  • Setting up a comfortable study space;
  • Getting creative with new educational activities; and most important,
  • Ensuring proper nutrition and fortification including the importance of Vitamin C

Enriching advice and tips will come from the expertise and real-life experiences of fellow moms and experts such as homeschooling advocate Tina Rodriguez, mom and daughter Mikaela Martinez-Lagdameo and Noelle, and LEGO senior concept artist, Ian Sta Maria. 

“It has always been TANG’s mission to be every Filipino mom’s partner in preparing their children for a bright future. And this partnership is even more important as moms face the new normal of distance learning.” says Miguel Reyes, Brand Manager of TANG Philippines. “With TANG, moms can ensure that their children will have refreshing breaks that help make for a better learning experience. This is just the first step of many as we at TANG continue to be every mom’s partner in guiding their children towards what lies ahead.” 

Join a fun and enriching merienda break with your kids on August 8, 2020, 3PM, as the free platform launches through a Facebook Live session on www.facebook.com/TANGPhilippines/.

Get your kids ready for a brighter future, prepared with TANG. 

Teach your kids financial literacy through ‘Cha-Ching Kid$ at Home’

Teaching kids (even adults, TBH, LOL) about finances is not as easy as ABC, but with the help of the right tools, any parent can make their children financially literate.

Pru Life UK has launched “Cha-Ching Kid$ at Home” online resources to help and encourage Filipino parents to teach key money management concepts to their children at home. This initiative was developed by Prudence Foundation, the community investment arm of Prudential in Asia and Africa.

Designed for children aged 7 to 12, “Cha-Ching Kid$ At Home” materials can help parents teach kids about key money management concepts such as Earn, Save, Spend, and Donate. Each guide directs parents to relevant music videos, topics for discussion, and activities to help their children put learning into practice. The parent guides are downloadable for free on the Cha-Ching website and can be viewed online or printed out.

In addition to the parents’ guide, Prudence Foundation is also rolling out Cha-Ching daily challenges, which include activities or discussion pointers, posted on the website every weekday of June. Each challenge takes approximately 15 minutes to complete, aiming to encourage parents to incorporate discussions around money with their children as part of their daily life. The guides are in English and will soon be translated into Filipino versions.

Check out the Cha-Ching website at https://chaching.cartoonnetworkasia.com/en/

The Cha-Ching website also contains a resource center where teachers can easily access the digitized version of the Cha-Ching curriculum teaching materials for self-study or review. Educators can simply log onto the Teacher section of the Cha-Ching website to download the Cha-Ching curriculum’s master list of teaching aids, session implementation video guides, music videos, and comic books on their personal electronic devices.

Cha-Ching teachers can also freely equip themselves with materials of the in-class and take-home activities that they can repurpose for their students. This initiative will help expand the reach of Cha-Ching across the Philippines and promote money-smart knowledge among students.

Foster creativity with the new HP Pavilion X360

Gen Z’s and young millennials are so passionate about expressing their individuality and making the world a better place that most of them dream of owning start-up companies.

This generation–our own children–of socially-responsible individuals is also known for working on things that add meaning and purpose and for giving back to society.

But apart from having the passion to make a difference in the world by expressing their individuality, they also need a powerful tool that can truly improve their talents and enable them to learn new skills, to ultimately turn their ideas into reality.

At the Start Up Your Passion event at the Start Up Village in Makati City, HP Philippines took some of the country’s tech, lifestyle, and entrepreneurship bloggers for a knowledge sharing
session on nurturing passion to success, as it introduced them to the HP Pavilion x360.

Powered by an Intel Core i7 processor, the Pavilion x360 is HP’s latest flagship laptop that features the latest technology and an ultrathin and light design, boasting of power and unmatched flexibility to help young individuals further pursue their passions and aspirations,
including start-up businesses.

“At HP, we value how our young generations dream of having their own start-up businesses not only to express their individuality and pursue their diverse passions, but more importantly, to innovate and make a lasting positive difference in their communities and in society. This is one of the inspirations behind creating the HP Pavilion x360 laptop, as its combination of power and
flexibility makes it an ideal tool that can empower budding young entrepreneurs to succeed in their endeavors,” said Dos Roque, HP Philippines Marketing Manager for Personal Systems.

The event was an engaging discussion with TV/radio personality Joyce Pring as she encouraged the audience to “Think 360” in finding ways to start a business using the HP Pavilion x360.

Aside from being fun and exciting contests, the event’s activities tested the attendees’ creativityand business ideation skills, knowledge of successful enterprises and how the HP Pavilion x360 can help young entrepreneurs to start-up and power the growth of their businesses.

Finding ways to start and grow a business can be a daunting task, but it can be much easier
and convenient if you have the HP Pavilion x360.

Running on up to 8th generation Intel Core i7 quad-core processor, INVIDIA MX250 2GB DDR5 discrete graphics and a 128GB SSD and 1TB HDD dual storage, the HP Pavilion x360 can easily and reliably handle an array of different tasks that can trigger and start up a budding entrepreneur’s passion to create and grow a business.

For those who prefer to be mobile and work anywhere, the HP Pavilion x360 can be converted as a laptop or as a tablet. A durable 360-degree geared hinge lets users work on their business
plans in laptop mode, watch presentations and videos in stand mode, celebrate success and
play in tent mode, and write or draw designs for their next product in tablet mode.

The HP Pavilion x360 PC has a micro-edge bezel design which makes the 14-inch screen seem bigger, for a more immersive viewing experience especially when doing video conference calls. The Full HD IPS touchscreen also helps users navigate sites with ease.

The HP Pavilion x360 is available in Natural Silver colors. Price starts at P38,990 at all HP Concept Stores, authorized HP reseller outlets nationwide and online via HP Flagship Store on Lazada and Shopee.
