Globe ProjectED Grand Winner: Team Reveuse of University of the East Caloocan with the executives of Globe MyBusiness, from L-R Debbie Obias, Michelle Tapia, Gil Genio, and Derrick Heng, during the ProjectEd Awards Night, held last Thursday, March 8, 2018 at the Maybank Performing Arts Auditorium, in Bonifacio Global City.

Globe MyBusiness recently held the much-awaited awards night of ProjectEd at the Maybank Performing Arts Auditorium in Bonifacio Global City.  The ProjectED is a nationwide video competition for high school students.

Today’s digital landscape affects how we learn, and it is only right that education makes the most of the video revolution. Globe’s ProjectEd proved that students recognize the immense power and potential of hopping aboard the video wagon, and education should definitely follow suit. 

For the contest, the themed-question is, "How is technology changing the way you learn today?" The answer is translated via a three-minute video using only their mobile phone. Globe received 90 entries, which went through a stringent deliberation process composed by esteemed pool of judges, which comprised of Globe leaders including Quark Henares of Globe Studios, as well as award-winning filmmakers Emerson Reyes and Keith Sicat.

Opening remarks by Mitsch Tapia, Head - Strategy, Innovation, and Transformation, Globe MyBusiness. 

Gil Genio, Chief Technology & Information Officer and Chief Strategy Officer, Globe Telecom, Inc.,  said “It is inspiring to see the creativity of today's students," he added, "Seeing this potential, Globe continues to be committed to advocate for digital learning, and in particular video learning, reinforcing the message that you can learn anytime, anywhere using technology at your disposal.”
