Students showcase their FilmMaking at the #GlobeProjectED.

  How does technology affect how we learn? How different is the learning process with our gadgets and gizmos, networks and digi-communities? Globe myBusiness wanted to draw the difference and see things from the perspective of the youth using the power of video.

  For ProjectEd, the synergy of concepts is between digital technologies and education. How might we learn given the technology at our disposal? It is indisputable how technology has affected learning all around, and ProjectEd seeks to bring those changes to the forefront.

  ProjectEd is a nationwide video competition which is open to all high school students. They were asked to answer the question, How is technology changing how you learn today; via a three-minute video using only their mobile devices.

The Globe ProjectED video contest received nearly 100 entries, each with its own signature style and creative stamp. In front of an extremely engaged audience of 250 high school students, head teachers, principals, Globe senior officers, and members of the press, the results were announced during the Globe ProjectEd Awards Night, at the Maybank Performing Arts Auditorium.

  After a careful review of all entries and stringent deliberation processes, an esteemed pool of judges, which comprised of Globe leaders including Globe Studios, as well as award-winning filmmakers Emerson Reyes and Keith Sicat, determined which videos deserved top spot. During awards night, there was a viewing of the top 10 finalists that bested the many creative entries collected from nearly 100 participating schools nationwide. 

  The best of the best were awarded top three Grand Winners and were given corresponding generous prizes: 


  • 1st Place: P50,000 cash and P50,000 education package for the school
  • 2nd Place: P30,000 cash and P30,000 education package for the school 
  • 3rd Place: P20,000 cash and P20,000 education package for the school

  • 1st place: University of the East- Caloocan (Senior High)
  • 2nd place: University of the East- Manila (Senior High)
  • 3rd place: Pitogo High School
   Aside from a fun viewing of the exciting videos and celebrating the well-deserved awardees, the VIP guests from both media and across different campuses were also treated to insightful workshops from some of today’s video stalwarts. YouTube Content Creator Riva Quenery shared tips on “How I Make My Videos Viral,” while filmmaker and professor Emerson Reyes shared his craft on “Effectivity of Video Materials in Teaching and Learning.” In between sessions, brother tandem Ben & Ben treated the audience to fun renditions of today’s hot hits. 

  Given how today’s digital landscape is moved by video, it is only right that education makes the most of the video revolution. What Globe’s ProjectEd proved is that students recognize the immense power and potential of hopping aboard the video wagon and education should definitely follow suit.
