Technology Topic : Upgrading Your Technical Skills During Pandemic Using Available Local and International Online Seminar, Training and Certifications
The pandemic (COVID-19) has brought a lot of catastrophic effects, not only here in the Philippines but all over the world. During this pandemic and the time of lock down, people procrastinated a lot, worst case is that, some of them have suffered from mental health issues and illnesses. As an educator who have locked down for almost four months, I have maximized my time finding ways on how to improve my technical skills and knowledge by engaging and involving myself in some of available Online Seminars, Training and Certifications locally and abroad.
