Upang mapabilis ang pagpapadala ng status reports, sa pag-consolidate at pagproseso sa mga report, at pag-aksiyon sa mga isyu, inilunsad ng Department of Educationang election monitoring app, at hinikayat ang mga guro na gamitin ito para sa “coordinated” information.
Sa isang pahayag, sinabi ni Undersecretary and DepEd Election Task Force Chair Alain Del Pascua na ang election monitoring app ay binuo upang gamitin ng mga guro at iba pang personnel na may poll duties sa 2019 midterm elections sa Lunes, Mayo 13. Layunin nito na “reporting simpler, easier, quicker and more efficient.”
Sinabi ni Pascuia na ang DepEd has “always taken its responsibility of ensuring the efficient and successful conduct of every election in the country in closed coordination and cooperation” sa Commission on Elections (Comelec) at iba pang ahensiya at organisasyon.
“DepEd also recognizes the importance of the role that public school teachers play in this exercise of democracy, and is committed to upholding their safety and well-being,” ani Pascua.
“In previous years DepEd has had to wade through massive and scattered data from all forms of media and must sort through all of them properly before being able to respond,” pagpapatuloy ni Pascua.
“Now, through this simple and ingenious use of Digital Technology, we are providing a more efficient way of gathering, consolidating, centralizing, and managing all this information into a format that is easily understood and actionable, all in Real-Time,” dagdag niya.
