The paper "Providing Basic Computer Education to the Filipino Youth' is a great example of a personal statement on education. What does the learning environment of the future look like? This project seeks to establish a CIDA Future Education or FUTION room – a concept classroom-showroom featuring the most innovative computer products as applied to education. The CIDA FUTION room will be housed in the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde School of Design and Arts (SDA) Building, a 14-story structure on P. Ocampo Street in Malate, Manila, occupying 50,000 square meters of space.
The SDA Building promises to be a major landmark in Manila once completed in 2006. Fifty percent (50%) of project grant value is to be provided in the form of CIDA products. Up to fifty percent (50%) of the project grant will be allocated for other equipment or software purchases, as well as facility improvements. The Board of Trustees, having acknowledged the increasing cost of maintaining specialized facilities and of financing other commitments, has mandated DLS-CSB to explore partnerships with equipment/facility providers and seek the assistance of philanthropic individuals and education/social development-oriented foundations.
