XIRUKI group of developers would like to thank both Siena College and the Department of Education (DepEd) for their willingness to support and cooperate with the team on the guidance and the development of I-Turo.
The team would also like to further acknowledge the help of Mrs. Precy Ricafort, a preschool teacher from Siena College, for her unending support for the team. Through the team's coordination with her and her colleagues in Siena College, the team has managed to acquire proper knowledge on child education and has learned great amount of facts regarding the principles on child behavioral approaches.
As the team progressed on gaining more contacts on the field of Child Psychology, the team would like to thank Ms. Josie Paragas, Ms. Barbie del Mundo, and Ms. Ria Bueneventura. They were the two preschool teachers and the guidance counselor whom the team had first interviewed in the qualitative data gathering processes.
In line with I-Turo's main field of study, the team would also like to give due credits to Mrs. Elizabeth Raymundo, a supervising news editor from the Philippine Broadcasting Service, for her help in coordinating interviews with the Department of Education (DepEd). With her help, the team has managed to set three different interviews in the Department on a single day.
