How to Choose the Right School – Put Your Future in Focus

How do you choose the right school, do you base it on course, specialty or prestige?

The truth is, there is no single answer to this. But if you had to put your future into the hands of one school, wouldn’t one that combines theoretical expertise with practice experience be the logical answer?

“The role of higher education, as far as iACADEMY is concerned, is to equip students with the capability to excel inside the classroom, and more importantly, outside the walls of the institution. Our school is proud of the fact that we are able to cross traditional academic boundaries through an integrative and immersive approach to learning, across some of the most in-demand industries today,” says Ms. Vanessa Tanco, President and CEO of iACADEMY.

School of Computing

The school of computing’s academic foundation ties its programs to a real-world curriculum that is meant to make students industry-ready for their chosen career.

“iACADEMY institutionalized an extensive internship program that really focuses on the student’s talents and exposes them to the demands of the job. This ensures relevant training in the field that lets them stand out as fresh graduates,” says Mr. Mitch Andaya, Vice President for Academics.

Notably, iACADEMY is also known for producing some of the most talented graduates in Software Engineering, Game Development, Information Technology and Web Development.

School of Business

For business, iACADEMY’s courses are strongly anchored on fundamental business concepts as much as it is on the abstract ideas that drive businesses and organizations to succeed. These include thinking on their feet, smart decision-making, creativity, leadership, networking, accountability and social relevance.

“We offer business administration but with strong focus on financial management as well as marketing and advertising – all of which are the pillars of a holistic approach to business in today’s modern landscape,” explains Mr. Lucky Malveda, Dean of iACADEMY’s School of Business.

More importantly, iACADEMY makes sure that students are given a chance to learn from working professionals who are updated with the trends and constantly evolving nature of the industry.

School of Design

The study of design is as much about nurturing creativity as it is exposure to technology and real-world experience.

“Many people tend to think that the tool males the artist, but the reality is entirely the opposite. We coach students in the use of industry-standard software and equipment to unlock their creative potentials, but that’s only the tip of the iceberg. Our main objectives are to hone their talent and nurture their imagination to help them succeed as artists and designers,” says Mr. Ryan Abeledo, Chairperson of Multimedia Arts and Design.

It takes a more focused and practical approach to a course that is traditionally based on the subjectivity of a student’s talent. Across its different areas of discipline, specifically Animation, Multimedia Arts and Design, and Fashion Design and Technology, iACADEMY makes sure that students graduate armed with the necessary skills to become game changers in their careers.

“Given the competitive nature of design, we also want to give students a global perspective on how they can succeed,” adds Mr. Dane Romley iACADEMY’S Creative Director, whose expertise stems from having worked as one of the animators in the longest running cartoon series in the world, The Simpsons.

Senior High School Curriculum

In line with the government’s thrust to improve the nation’s education system, iACADEMY is now also offering Senior High School Program that will give students a more comprehensive educational background as they enter higher education.

That said, iACADEMY takes it a step further by creating a senior high school program that is focused on the school’s core competencies in computing, business and design; thus giving students more exposure and experience for the creative and technical expertise required to excel in their field. It also enables to make better decisions for their future careers.

“Right now, students are in the best position to learn how to become the game changers of their chosen industries. And while a theoretical academic approach is important, the competitive nature of today’s industries prompts a more comprehensive and holistic approach to education to prepare students for what lies ahead,” ends Mr. Jake Aragon, iACADEMY’s Senior High School Principal.

INNOVATIVE PRODUCTS TO DRIVE EXPANSION IN LOCAL SHORES

Global air conditioning, appliance giant  enters Philippine market. Amidst the phenomenal growth in the Philippines’ retail sector, a brand of a global leader in air conditioning systems and appliances is set to bring to the country its line of innovative products. Tosot, a premium brand of Gree, the biggest manufacturer of air conditioners in the world, was officially launched this October.

Tosot PR

Tosot Philippines also held a grand launch, where dignitaries and executives of Gree came in full force to support the brand expansion in Southeast Asia. Tosot Philippines General Manager Tom Balete said the brand intends to compete in the segment of the market which demand innovative and premium solutions for air conditioners, something Tosot successfully did in three continents worldwide. The move, Balete said, is in response to growing consumer sentiment that prefers quality air conditioner brands, instead of the usual cheap but low quality products that flood appliance centers all over the land. “We have been observing the market for years now. We noticed that in the past couple of years, many families and businesses have started to upgrade their air conditioning systems to something that goes beyond cooling their rooms. They want efficiency and quiet that cheaper products don’t have.” He explained that the penchant of consumers to upgrade their appliances could be a direct result of the growth in the country’s retail sector, marked by the increase in the number of middle class families, which allowed premium brands worldwide to enter the Philippines. In fact, Balete said that in the Southeast Asian region, where the Philippines is a key member, analysts are predicting that the middle class is expected to triple from 525 million in 2009 to 1.74 billion in 2020.

Tosot 2

“Tosot’s entry to the Philippines couldn’t come at a better time. We want to be that alternative premium brand of air conditioners and we will compete in terms of providing really technologically advanced products that will set the bar for air conditioners, especially in terms of energy consumption and area acoustics,” he said. Tosot Philippines will also place priority on products that are ecologically friendly. “Our work primarily focuses on making lives more comfortable at no expense to nature. For every product we create, we think about how it will impact the environment.” Tosot prides itself of using R-32 & R-410A in its air-conditioning units. These special refrigerants do not contribute to ozone depletion, and allow for lower power consumption and less impact on global warming. Tosot also uses the inverter air-conditioning system that consumes less electricity compared to conventional air-conditioning units. This means less energy, reduced production costs, and an environment-friendly business. As a premium brand, Tosot’s product lines are made using the best technology available today.

The company strives to create a sophisticated and comfortable lifestyle where its clients are. “The people behind Tosot have worked hard-in-hand over a decade to bring the most innovative appliances possible in order to foster a lifestyle that not only sees to you and your family’s comfort and convenience but also the health and well-being of the environment.

Apart from the Philippines, Tosot is distributed globally in Italy, Canada, Hongkong, Iraq, Russia, Ukraine, and China. Partners in comfort and well-being Tosot has also partnered with various institutions to effectively improve the quality of life that includes comfort and well-being, and to bring not only comfort but a great deal of satisfaction. This includes Don Bosco Technical Institute where Tosot Philippines gets student-trainees for a five-month training program. In turn, Tosot Philippines provides scholarships to these trainees as part of their corporate social responsibility. Tosot Philippines also works with TUV Rheiland Philippines in ensuring that all Tosot products comply with the Philippine National Standard. Apart from its showroom, Tosot Philippines has also partnered with and Lazada.com.ph in promoting and selling of Tosot products online.

How to Upload Your Pics From Your Camera Directly to Your Phone

My  CD-R KING Setup
My CD-R KING Setup

I’ve recently found out that I can upload pictures right after taking them with the help of these gadgets.

Samsung phone + OTG Cable(Php100.00) + SD Card Reader(Php15.00)

Both are from CD-R KING and yes you read it correctly the card reader sells only for fifteen Pesos! At first I thought the OTG was only hood for checking files via USB and watching movies… but one tiring afternoon I had to send some high resolution pictures to my mom and I’m too tired to get my laptop so I thought “well the card reader looks like a USB and acts like a USB so this should work” and viola!!!

The beauty of this setup is that I have options to upload, send and save the pictures or files via different means like email, chat, Dropbox, message, Viber, Facebook Google Drive and WordPress. In fact I’m now lying on my bed while doing this.

Convenient huh?! Now if you want to upload pictures,  just make sure you have WiFi or Mobile Data. The next three months would be extremely busy, wonderful and memorable. So let’s all be event ready by trying new things, making sure that everything works properly, all electronic devices are charged and that you’re always photoready!

Till next time! Expect me to post the pictures from tomorrow’s Belle de Jour Veterans Party!
