Two of the trainers are recognized by Microsoft for being Innovative Teachers.  Glendale Lamiseria won in the Innovative Teachers Leadership Award (ITLA) of 2011 in the Philippines and participated in the Regional ITLA held at Thailand.  Ernani Fernandez is a Microsoft Innovative Expert Educator of 2014 and a Learn-a-thon Winner during the Global Forum held in Barcelona. 

 For this month of January and February 2015, is the wide implementation of the training to all Grade 1 teachers.  Hence, Division of Leyte conducted another training for untrained Grade 1 Teachers, simultaneously.  And the teachers who attended in the previous batch are now included as facilitators.  They are the one who give assistance to those teachers who are just new in using technology.
The next plan of Division of Leyte is to train the School Leaders with regard to Project TIED in order for them to know the significance of integrating technology in teaching and for them to give their support to teachers.
They will also gain skills on instructional supervision with the use of ICT aligned to Kto12 competencies and acquire innovative strategies in supervising teachers with the aid of technology.

Project TIED is good when it comes to its design and its perspective, but the school head should also know about it as to the implementation to the school. Because, those who were trained weren't able to echo it to the school. Example is the lesson planning, some school heads do not accepts for changes, to be encoded. so as to class records. and even some teachers still don't know how to use such technologies. I think, there should be a wide and strict dissemination and compliance to it. there should be a mandate for legal bases.
