In culmination of National Teachers’ Month, Cebuana Lhuillier Foundation, Inc. joined the festivities in Limketkai Mall, Cagayan De Oro City. The event, called “Gurong Pilipino: Handa sa Makabagong Pagbabago,” was hosted by the Department of Education Region X, in coordination with the Local Government Unit of Cagayan De Oro and Misamis Oriental and tackled the education sector’s journey to the Fourth Industrial Revolution. In her opening speech, DepEd Secretary Leonor Briones emphasized how the country is gearing towards the age of artificial intelligence, smart technologies, augmented realities, and cyber systems that obliterate the boundaries between the physical and digital.
