REIINN-Resilient Education Information Infrastructure for the New Normal
The Resilient Education Information Infrastructure for the New Normal (REIINN) project is an initiative led by the DOST-Advanced Science and Technology Institute that focuses on developing application frameworks and infrastructures to support the shift to remote learning and to narrow the digital divide in the country.
The Project REIINN focuses on the development of application frameworks and infrastructures to supplement face-to-face classes and activities, and to narrow the digital divide in the country.
Currently, the project has two components: (1) LokaLTE, which aims to develop and deploy community LTE networks in the Philippines; and (2) RuralCasting, which utilizes datacasting technology to supplement educational experiences of students.
The REIINN Project was able to establish partnerships and collaborations with the Department of Education (DepEd) for content integration; DOST-Science and Technology Information Institute (DOST-STII) for Starbooks content; Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU) for mobile apps and games for learning mathematics, USAID’s Better Access and Connectivity (BEACON) Project for the assistance in crafting policies on last mile connectivity; LGU Castillejos, Zambales, LGU Tanay, Rizal and the DOST-Regional Office No. IV-A for the deployment assistance of REIINN technologies in the identified pilot sites.
The REIINN Project expanded its technology proliferation activities to urban settings through a spin-off project with DOST-NCR. The full implementation of the project will commence in 2023.
