The Center’s main facility is a tablet POC classroom donated by Vibal. It will be used to develop proficiency in technology across disciplines for both faculty and students. The center will also offer online courses for teachers starting the first semester AY 2013-2014 . It will also serve as a venue for the annual PNU-Vibal Summer ICT Training program.

A V-Smart Classroom was also given to PNU. These are PC tablets in a Mobile Cart to the PNU Center for Teaching and Learning (formerly the PNY Laboratory School). The tablets, loaded with Vibal interactive textbooks in all subject areas will be used by Grade 1 pupils. The V-Smart classroom system is powered by Vibe Technologies, the Vibal technology arm.

This partnership project is in line with Vibal’s advocacy for digital education, while PNU is driven by its commitment to the advancement of teacher education through the use of technology in all learning areas as a means for promoting greater interactivity, widening access to knowledge that will enrich learning and develop skills in accessing, processing and utilising information.
