Some organizations provide free webinars for educators across the world. It is truly inspiring to see those who make efforts to prepare and collaborate in helping teachers to be equipped and upskilled with the integration of educational technology. And it is also motivating to encourage educators to work towards the common good.
Recently, the Department of Education (DepEd) and Global Networks Association of Teachers as a Foreign Language (GENTEFL) of Thailand have conducted a three-day series of webinars for teachers.

“In the Philippines, we have been innovating and implementing programs such as the use of TV, Radio, the use of different authoring tools for the development of Open Educational Resources (OER), and the use of different Learning Management Systems (LMS).
