Students Give Free ICT Training to Public School Teachers
For three consecutive Saturdays starting September 6, the College of Computer Studies (CCS), through one of its Computer Fundamentals 1 classes, is giving a series of free Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) Skills Enhancement Training for public elementary and high school teachers in Dumaguete City.
