DepEd ICT Policies1

The DepEd implemented the DepEd Computerization Program (DCP) through

DepEd Order No. 78, s. 2010, otherwise known as the Guidelines on the
Implementation of the DepEd Computerization geared towards the transformation of
education system. This policy supports the importance of enhanced basic education
services through improved quality teaching and learning using ICT integration in the
classroom instruction.
The DCP seeks to provide public schools with appropriate technologies that
would enhance the teaching-learning process and meet the challenges of the 21st
century. It also responds to the computer backlog of public schools through the
provision of hardware and software and training on simple trouble shooting. The policy
identified specific objectives, such as: provide computer laboratory packages to
secondary schools and e-classroom to elementary schools; laptop units to mobile
teachers; integration of ICT in the school system; raise the ICT literacy of learners,
pupils, students, teachers and school heads; and, reduce the computer backlog in
public schools.
Other policies such as DepEd Order No. 50, s. 2009 (DepEd Internet
Connectivity Project) and DepEd Order No. 95, s. 2010 (Computer Usage Code-of-
Conduct Contract) reinforce the DCP (DepEd Order No. 78, s. 2010). These policies
support the provision of internet access and the proper use of internet in enhancing
quality teaching and learning.
DepEd recognizes the use of the internet services in providing the teachers
and learners unlimited learning resources for research, study, communication and
service purposes. It launched the DepEd Internet Connectivity Project (DICP) through
directing all public high schools to subscribe for internet connectivity services (DepEd
Order No. 50, s. 2009). DepEd also realized that internet is filled with dangerous or
malicious software or programs. To avoid being victimized by such hazards, it also
provides guidelines on the proper use of computer and network facilities in all DepEd
schools (DepEd Order No. 78, s. 2010). Moreover, the DepEd requires the compliance
of the Computer Usage Code-of-Conduct Contract by all concerned before using said
facilities (DepEd Order No. 95, s. 2010).
