Filipino teachers are winners - Microsoft Partners in Learning Regional Education Forum

We at AralMuna.Me salute the Filipino teachers who represented the Philippines and brought home the top prizes besting 60 other representatives from Asia Pacific during the 2012 Microsoft’s Partners in Learning Regional Education Forum held last March in Auckland, New Zealand.

They are:
  1. Shateen Seraña of Tuan Datu Hadji Abdulla Niño Memorial High School in Zamboanga
  2. Edalyn Olis of Lala National High School in Lanao del Norte, and 
  3. Estelito Mendoza of Baguio National High School

Mangrove Planting Project
Seraña took home the country award with her “Mangrove Planting, ” a project for her fourth year high school students which allowed her students to learn beyond the classroom, improve their Information and Communications Technology (ICT) skills and encouragee them to apply their learning to their community.

“I did some research on what the students could do to help the community and I thought mangrove planting could be feasible because it would protect our coastal area from erosion. Since none of the students has ever experienced tree-planting before or used the Internet for school projects, this could be an interesting experiential project for them,” she said.

The students were grouped according to their interests. They came up with proposal letters distributed among local officials, community groups as sponsorship campaigns. Other teams did Facebook Groups as a way to inform every member of the team, while others handled journaling of their project using Multiply. Some students 

She will represent the country this November in Microsoft's Global Forum, where teachers from all over the world present their winning projects among panelists as well as attend ongoing development programs and seminars.

Olis won in the Innovation in Challenging Contexts category for her “E-dokyo” project, while Mendoza was a runner-up for his piece called “Learning Beyond the Classroom and Make A Difference.”

Impact of K-12 to ALS and A&E Passers

Ano nga ba ang epekto ng K-12 sa Alternative Lerning System (ALS)? Simula school year 2016-2017, ang mga Grade 10 o 4th year high school students ay magsisimula nang mag-aral ng senior high school sa halip na magpunta sa kolehiyo. Ang ALS Accreditation and Equivalency (A & E) Exam ay ang katumbas ng high school diploma para sa mga nag-aral sa pamamagita ng ALS.

Kailangan ba ng mga A & E passers na dumaan pa sa senior high school bago makatuntong sa kolehiyo o katumbas nito? Ayon sa website ng Department of Education, ang mga nakapasa ay maari nang dumiretso sa sekondarya o post-secondary schools.

Passers are qualified to enroll in secondary and post-secondary schools (DepEd website, retrieved 28 June 2016).

Ang ibig sabihin, ang mga A & E passers ay hindi na kinakailangang mag-senior high school. Subalit, ang mga high school (HS) graduate na may diplomang pang sekondarya na hindi pa nage-enroll sa kolehiyo ay mayroon na lamang itong school year at 2017-2018 para mag-enroll …
