ICT WEEK – Enhancing ICT Skills for Better Careers



Its opening program started on Jan. 21 at 9:00am at ICI-Iligan Annex 3.  One of the highlights of the event, were seminars on WordPress headed by Mr. James Mayol; SEO and graphics enhancing with Rene Leandro M. Padilla and Martin John V. Kintanar; and Designs Essentials with Mr. Louis Mark N. Plaza. Together, though in a short period, they have shared and given more than enough input for the participants.  The participants were not only limited to ICI students; it was open for the interested outsiders with a very minimal pay to defray usage of utilities.


With the theme: Enhancing ICT skills for better career, skills competition and winners are as follows –  Quiz Bowl (Catherine O. Caay & Karina Melody M. Padilla), Digital Poster Making (James Chenvir B. Jaicten), PC Troubleshooting (Kert Kevin P. Gaudiano & Keane Michael D. Tinggas), Webpage Designing (Genstar Ken C. Enriquez), Word Processing (Jomarie G. Tuyor), Logo Making (Genstar Ken C. Enriquez), AutoCAD (Jan Rexie T. Dayanan), Keyboarding (Junmar R. Fernandez), Dota Tournament (Team N.L.T. led by Ralph Aldueso) and Kiosk Display (Saadodin M Amen).  Other competition included board game:  Chess (King Gester R. Genon), Scrabble (Jasmen V. Omandam), Monopoly (Daryl Victor F. Escarpe).


It was a fun-filled activity while learning to apply ICT skills.  It was to test out whether they really understood, able to analyze, use, and apply the needed ability in the preferred competency.  For most the event ended with the awarding of their respective contest while others continue with the film showing and Dota competition ended late in the afternoon.
