Nais ni Senador Panfilo Lacson na muling ituro sa bagong henerasyon ng Pilipino ang respeto, paggalang at ibang mabubuting asal na nangangambang mawawala na dahil sa pagsulpot ng high-tech at online na gadgets.

Ang hakbang ni Lacson ay nakapaloob sa Senate Bill 1185 na naglalayong palakasing muli ang pagtuturo ng good manners and right conduct (GMRC) sa mga batang mag-aaral.

“Taking into account the Edukasyon sa Pagpapakatao curriculum of the Department of Education’s K-12 program, the Good Manners and Right Conduct curriculum is hereby institutionalized and shall be designated as a separate subject to be taught in Kindergarten to Grade 3 levels,” ayon kay Lacson.

PingBills | To Balance Technology’s Influence: Lacson Bill Aims to Teach GMRC to Filipino Youths

High-tech gadgets and devices may teach new things to many Filipino children and youths, but good manners and right conduct may not be among them.

On this note, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson filed a bill aiming to make sure Filipinos learn good manners and right conduct during their formative years from Kindergarten to Grade 3.

“In order to create a balance, it is necessary for our educational system to aid the Filipino family in imparting good manners and right conduct to our young students by its inclusion in the curriculum at the beginning of their school years,” Lacson said in Senate Bill 1185, as he noted how modern technology threatens to impact the social skills and manners of Filipino youth.

He added Education Secretary Leonor Briones has warned “technology without good manners is a disaster” as empathy, compassion and humanity cannot be learned in an “online or technology-driven pedagogy.”

Ping sa DND: Pumasok na kayo sa cyber-world

Pinabibilisan ni Senador Panfilo Lacson sa Department of National Defense (DND) ang pagbuo ng modernong kakayahan at kasanayan sa pagbabantay at pagtatanggol sa bansa laban sa mga pagtatangka buhat sa mga masasamang elemento.

Sa pagdinig ng Finance Subcommittee ng Senado na pinamunuan ni Lacson sa panukalang badyet ng DND para sa susunod na taon, personal na sinabihan ng mambabatas si DND Secretary Delfin Lorenzana na kailangan nang magkaroon ng matibay na pundasyon ang ahensiya sa usapin ng cyber- and technological capabilities.

Ayon kay Lacson, ang kasalukuyang panahon ay mabilis na umuusad patungo sa pagiging ganap na cybertechnology-capable kung kaya’t dapat makasabay ang DND bilang pangunahing sangay-tanggulan ng bansa.

Lacson to DND: Pursue cyber, tech capabilities in age of modern warfare

In this age of biotechnology and artificial intelligence, the Philippines should be developing its cyber- and technological capabilities to ward off threats on those fronts.

Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson stressed this on Tuesday as he exhorted the Department of National Defense to exhaust all means to pursue this course of action.

“We are in an age of biotechnology and artificial intelligence. We should be looking at control of the airwaves and cyberspace,” Lacson said at the hearing for the DND’s 2019 budget at the Senate.

Lacson Pushes Web-based Monitoring for Provincial Projects

Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson is pushing for Web-based monitoring of the implementation of infrastructure projects at the provincial level, to ensure transparency and efficiency.

Lacson said such a system could take a cue from that being implemented in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM), which uses apps like Google Maps.

“I would suggest (that this be implemented at the) provincial level. Provincial governments should replicate the ARMM’s map-based solution,” Lacson, who authored Senate Bill 40 seeking to implement budget reform by downloading resources to local governments, said at a Senate hearing.

Online Monitoring sa mga Gov’t Projects Itinulak ni Ping

Puwede nang masubaybayan ng mga mamamayan ng isang partikular na rehiyon o lalawigan sa mas madali at mabilis na paraan ang itinatakbo ng mga proyektong ipinatupad ng kanilang mga lokal na opisyal,

Ito ay sa pamamagitan ng iminumungkahi ni Senador Panfilo Lacson na pagpapatupad sa buong bansa ng sistemang ginagamit ng Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) sa pagmonitor sa mga proyekto ng rehiyon.

Sa sistema kasi na ginagamit ng ARMM ay madaling malalaman kung hanggang saang yugto na ang nararating ng isang proyekto dahil sa internet na lamang ito binibisita sa pamamagitan ng Google Map application.

Lacson Bill Requires Prepaid SIM Card Registration to Stop Scams, Crimes

With the growing popularity of smart mobile devices such as phones, tablets and watches comes the risk of text-based and online scams, some of which may allow an attacker to steal a user’s identity and commit crimes in his or her name.

To fight this, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson filed a bill requiring the registration of prepaid subscriber identity modules (SIMs) dubbed the “Prepaid Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) Cards Regulations Act of 2016.”

“Possession of the most modern technology comes with tremendous responsibility. A mechanism must be put in place to ensure its effective use for the good of all while preventing its illegal or malicious use to benefit a few. Towards this end, the State shall regulate the use and sale of pre-paid SIM cards for users of cellular phones and other mobile devices only to persons who shall comply with the requirements herein set forth,” Lacson said in Senate Bill 252.
