Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, schools have resorted to distance learning, which is not exactly an easy thing for both students and teachers. Challenges like internet connectivity, hardware and software resources, and location for virtual classrooms are among those that both students and teachers face on a daily basis. As a response, some LGUs like Manila, City of San Pablo, Laguna, and Pasig distributed laptops, tablets, and pocket WiFis to students and teachers to aid them with distance learning.
While not all LGUs get the same treatment, McDonalds is lending a helping hand through its McClassroom initiative, where they converted their party rooms into a productive workspace for teachers.
From October 5 to 9, teachers can visit participating McDonalds branches and sign up for a slot so that they have a good space for conducting distance learning lessons. Those signing up are treated to free McCafe coffee, and branches with WiFi access will be provided with free WiFi access.
While the program will only last for a week, giving teachers a chance to work in an environment that is conducive for conducting distance learning sessions. Netizens are lauding McDonalds move, as it is a great help for teachers struggling with delivering productive online lessons to their students.
