I have a confession to make. Although I am with the team which pretty much shares truckload of information and uses a good arsenal of media platforms to further social media mileage; me, on the other hand have a humdrum and linear approach to social media use.

My latest travel on the road with Ben along with Sir Olan and Ms. Gigi to Quezon Province and Marinduque allowed me to experience firsthand what it means to be an extension worker.
Obviously, this would be my first blog having been officially signed last February 10.
We look back to the year that was....
An e-empowered extension workers and farmers via its Agriculture and Fishery courses offered online.
Increased confidence in what we do with the implementation of the TextSupport and Farmers Contact Center (FCC)
Just when you thought you already know the e-Learning core group who have been responsible behind the distance learning phenomena in terms of its operations and promotions....well, think again.
Here, I have attempted to demystify every core member from the first impression they emit to their very persona.
Yes, trivial but true.
Considered as the training arm of the Department of Agriculture (DA), it is but a public knowledge that the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) is tasked to harmonize all training activities which are agricultural by nature (yes, aquaculture included). Its 16 Regional Training Centers (and one center for swine sensibility through ITCPH) sprawled across the country indicates its conscious effort to deliver extension services to its farmer-clients and extension workers.
|Extension services continue to evolve. With the challenges that extension workers and farmers face, the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) continues to explore various strategies to improve its efforts as the extension and training arm of the Department of Agriculture. In over 30 years, the ATI has celebrated various successes and learned from the lessons during hard times. Nonetheless, we are proud to be standing the test of time through the support of our partners and the clientele themselves. This is the ATI Today, more committed to bring you extension services beyond boundaries.|
