5 Panalo tips to make your kids enjoy studying at home

Back-to-school season is just around the corner, but this year, kids will have to stay at home and get used to a new way of learning. With the adoption of online classes to keep children safe, parents now have to closely help and guide their little ones as they continue their education at home. 

Adjusting to home schooling can be hard and overwhelming, especially for parents who will be trying this method for the first time. But with a little bit of push, patience, and love for kids, homeschooling becomes easy and will fit into the family’s routine at home. Here are five panalo tips to make teaching and learning at home a success: 

Tip 1: Have a clear daily schedule
Kids are used to routines - back in the normal days, they would wake up early, wash up, eat breakfast, go to school, and attend their classes. To make the adjustment to home learning easier, you can create a timetable or class schedule that they have to follow to make it seem as if they are in school. Set a designated time for each subject and allot ample space for breaks and activity time.  

Tip 2: Use online resources together 
Online classes mean that kids have to spend most of their day on their computers and devices. This also means that moms have to prepare their homes to be e-learning ready, equipped with strong internet connection so children can access their lessons and be present in lectures online. Moms also need to be familiar with basic computer programs so they can guide their children in doing their online requirements. There are a handful of free online tools and programs to help supplement your child’s learning resources and make studying easy at home.

Tip 3: Make the lessons interesting and exciting 
Young learners are visual, creative, and imaginative. Most of the time, it helps them better understand difficult topics when presented in a fun and engaging way. You can create colorful flashcards to help them memorize basic math formulas and problems. If you are teaching them Filipino or English literature, you can engage them in a storytelling activity or act out a scene and do a short skit. You can also create easy board games, activities, and drawings to demonstrate the lessons. 

Tip 4:  Schedule physical activities 
Ask any kid about their favorite subject in school, and most of them will probably say physical education (PE). And just because they now have to stay and learn at home, it does not mean that they cannot enjoy their favorite subject anymore. Daily physical activity is important for your kid’s growth and development of motor skills. Try to schedule an hour of physical activity in your daily plan and enjoy playing outdoors, exercising together, or running around in the garden at home.

Tip 5: Eat three well-balanced meals a day 
Moms need to remember that it is important for school-aged children above 3 years old to receive all the necessary nutrients, minerals and vitamins for growth and development. Getting proper nutrition also ensures they receive all the nutrients required for brain development to help them perform better academically. Prepare healthy, well-balanced meals for their lunch breaks and snacks, making sure to include fruits and vegetables, wholegrain, meat, and fish. Along with their healthy meals, you can help complete your child’s daily nutrition with a glass of Vitaminized Lactum 3+ milk. 

Together with 3 balanced meals a day, Vitaminized LACTUM 3+ has the essential immuno-nutrients - Vitamins A, C, E, Zinc, and Selenium - to help strengthen your child's immune system and to help keep them safe and protected from illnesses. Help achieve #ImmunityPanalo with Vitaminized LACTUM 3+. It also helps provide nourishment for their brain and bone development so they can achieve more even while homeschooling.

Monitor and track your usage and bill with the GlobeOne and Globe at Home apps

As the Philippines embraces a new normal amid the community quarantine, Globe is making it easier for its subscribers to manage their accounts with the GlobeOne and Globe at Home apps. With just a few taps on their smartphones, they can monitor and track their usage and bill, request for tech support, buy load, and settle their balance.

Customers can now download the apps for free and have their concerns resolved within minutes, without having to wait for their turn or step out of their homes.

“As we shift to a more relaxed quarantine across the country, we continue to recreate the way we serve our customers to make it easier and safer for them to manage their accounts,” says Rebecca Eclipse, Globe Chief Customer Experience Officer. “They have relied on online platforms for essentials, groceries, and even education, to lessen physical interaction. We are offering this same convenience as we bring our most widely-used services to our customers’ reach through our apps,” Eclipse  added.

GlobeOne is the digital companion for all the needs of Globe Postpaid, Globe Business and Prepaid subscribers. This app allows them to access their billing statements, monitor their data consumption, check their rewards points and even buy load credits. 

The Globe at Home app on the other hand allows Globe at Home Broadband and Prepaid Wifi subscribers to easily track their data usage,  add volume boosts and even upgrade their plan subscription.  

Both apps are free to use and are designed to be accessible any time, anywhere. Through these apps, customers can resolve their concerns in minutes, without having to wait for their turn on the hotline or at the Globe Store, allowing them to have more time for things that matter to them. 

To access, customers can simply download the suitable app and register using their email address or third-party credentials like Gmail, Facebook, and Yahoo! Mail. After they register, they can enroll their accounts using their mobile number.

Customers may also dial *143# and chat with Globe Telecom’s FB Messenger to do self-service transactions.

For customers, the number of those entering the stores will be managed. The following are implemented before entering the store: ‘no mask, no entry,’ temperature check, hand and footwear disinfection, and completion of a health check form. In stores, physical distancing in all areas including order queues and dine-in areas will be observed. Table service is done for dine-in customers to avoid any crowding in the claim area. Counter and table shields are also in place, among many other precautionary measures in-store.

 “While we have reopened our doors for dine-in, and as we gain the confidence of our consumers with our elevated measures, we also acknowledge that a large population of Filipinos still choose to eat at home. Because of this, the omnichannel approach that we have prioritized since 2011 has become very relevant today in making our products more accessible to consumers while ensuring their safety,” says Margot B. Torres, Managing Director of McDonald’s Philippines.
As a forerunner in digital transformation among quick service restaurants, McDonald’s introduces a new ordering channel. With the Facebook Messenger chatbot, consumers can conveniently place their orders online.

With this initiative, customers are able to mix and match from the five (5) Group Selections food products depending on their preference and budget.

“With the introduction of the M Group Selections and our no touch channels, we are hopeful that our consumers will be able to satisfy their cravings at the comfort and safety of their homes. We will continue to find ways to delight our consumers as we navigate through the new normal,” adds Torres.

Google Philippines to hold Pride Conversations online event on YouTube to honor the LGBTQ+ community

As part of the concluding celebration of Pride Month, Google will hold an online event called “Pride Conversations” to create a discussion and champion some of today’s inspiring members of the Filipino LGBTQ+ community. This will be streamed live on Google Philippines YouTube channel on June 30, 2020 at 5:00PM. 

The speakers of the event continue to bring pride to the LGBTQ+ community through their achievements in their respective fields. Taking part in the discussion are Antipolo City Barangay Councilor Kristine Ibardolaza; Plastic, Reconstructive, and Aesthetic Surgery Fellow Dr. Berry Beriña; motorcycle enthusiast and vlogger Gaki Azurin, more popularly known as “GakiMoto”; comedian, host, and YouTube creator Mikey Bustos; and Google Philippines Program Manager Melai Lopez. 

“Google is committed to inclusion and this Pride month, we’re excited to share how we always support the LGBTQ+ community in a number of ways--from sustaining a diverse workplace culture, to providing grants, to hosting events around the world to continue the discussion on equality,” said Mervin Wenke, Communications and PR Head for Google Philippines. “We are glad to further show this commitment through our products like Google Maps which is helping enable a virtual Pride March initiative this year.” 

A home to LGBTQ+ employees
Google fosters a diverse and inclusive culture where LGBTQ+ employees are respected, celebrated, and empowered. The company ensures that they enjoy the same opportunity to shine, be heard, and succeed in the organization just as much as any other employee. Below are just some of the benefits for Google’s LGBTQ+ employees around the world including the Philippines:

      Same-sex health benefits: Google is committed to and provide same-sex health coverage for Googlers and their partners.
      Employee assistance program: Google offers free emotional wellbeing support, 24/7, 365 days for Googlers and their dependents, as well as access to free expert information on legal, financial, and other topics. These services are confidential. 
      Parental leave: 
      A non-birth parent has at least 12 weeks of paid parental leave to spend with a new child (any parent who has a child born or adopted). 
      A ramp-back policy to help a non-birth parent transition back to work after a long leave is available. 

Googlers also have the freedom of establishing their preferred pronouns (he, she, xe, they) so colleagues will know how to best address a LGBTQ+ employee in the workplace to show inclusion and respect. 

“At Google, the use of preferred pronouns lives beyond work profiles and email signatures. Before a meeting begins, we may ask each other our preferred pronouns to address our colleagues accordingly and show respect. This demonstrates that LGBTQ+ employees are important and are always included in the discussion,” shares Melai Lopez, a trans woman and a Program Manager at Google Philippines.

Melai adds, “Google encourages us to form and participate in employee resource groups like Pride@Google. With this, I am able to use my voice to spark necessary conversations in the company and to contribute to the external LGBTQ+ community through high-impact programs and initiatives."

The “Pride Conversations” live event is part of Google’s initiatives for Pride Month, championing LGBTQ+ personalities whose stories serve as an inspiration for the community. Tune in on June 30, 2020 at 5:00 PM (Ph time) at Google Philippines YouTube channel.
