Open High School, naisabatas

Pagbati sa kina Senador Ramon Revilla Jr., Miriam Defensor-Santiago, Juan Edgardo Angara, Ralph Recto, and Vicente Sotto III na lumikha ng batas upang magkaroon ng mga materyales na multimedia ang mga nais makatapos ng high school kahit na hindi sila regular na nakakapasok sa klase.

Sa ilalim ng open high school, gagamitin ang radyo, telebisyon at computer-based na paguusap at iba pang multimedia sa pag-aaral. Ang sinumang may edad 18 taong-gulang o pababa na nakatapos lamang ng elementarya at nakapasa sa EPPT o Philippines Educational Placement Test  ay maaring sumailalim sa open high school.

Ang mga mag-aaral na 18 taong-gulang pataas na nais makatapos ng sekondarya ay kinakailangang sumangguni sa Kagawaran ng Edukasyon sa ilalim ng Alternative Learning System (ALS).

How to remember what you learn, Edgar Dale's Cone of Experience

The TV game show Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader is fun and embarrassing at the same time. What I get out of watching this show is the understanding that we don't need much of what we learn from elementary to high school. I am not anti-schooling or formal education. People may be successful with or without formal education, however, going the non-diploma way is more difficult and less traveled.

What will it take to achieve learning for all? Source: World Bank



Why we forget what we learn

Reading Edgar Dale's 1946 book titled Audio-Visual Methods in Teaching taught me these lessons on why we retain so less of what we learn in the classroom:
  1. We forget when what we are to learn does not seem important to us
  2. We forget when we do not see clearly what it is that we are supposed to be learning or we are not properly shown how to use this new item
  3. We forget when we do not make use of what we have been asked to learn in our daily living
An illustration are my kids. Filipino is their primary language before attending school. Since what they watch and read are in English, and English is the language they speak at school, Filipino took a back seat. They reply in English even when I talk with them in Filipino.

How to achieve effective learning

Dale suggests that children see, hear, touch, taste, plan, make, do and try. Experiencing is a great method of learning. Rich experiences

Philippine Trees Almanac Identifyer

The Philippines' climate makes it wonderful for plants and animals to thrive. All over the world, we rank third in terms of natural resources. As part of my third grader's lesson of Philippine plants and animals and weather, we went around our neighborhood collecting samples of various Philippine tree leaves.

I printed an image of each tree with a close up of their leaves and started our hunt.
Cloudy day perfect for leaf hunting


We were hoping to find these trees:

Narra - Found this. It has seedlike flowers/fruits similar to that of a talisay.

Acacia - Found this. Most furniture in Tartaria, Cavite use this wood.

Molave - Not found

Mahogany - Found this. The brown fruit reminds me of chico and kiwi.
Around 30 years ago, mahogany trees were used as electricity posts because of its straightness.


Apitong - Not found

Yakal - Not found

Instead, we found this fragrant tree which was really fortunate because we were reading the Alamat Ng Ilang-Ilang  and we were able to spot this because of the flower's shape and smell.

A great resource for learning about Philippine trees is the Green Almanac of the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc This collection offers pictures and descriptions of our trees, its parts and its uses. Go ahead and check it out and start identifying your trees. Thank you for this effort and congratulations for making this publicly available.

Paano napagana ni Scott Klemmer ng UC San Diego/Stanford and Online Class sa Coursera


Si Scott Klemmer ay isang artist designer na napunta sa pagtuturo ng cognitive at computer science. Espesyalisasyon niya ngayon ang UX na nasasakop ng Human Computer Interaction. Mula pa noong isang taon, nagsimula siyang magturo online sa pamamagitan ng Coursera.

Narito ang mga natutunan niya tungkol sa pagtuturo gamit ang mga MOOC o massive open online course:
Peer assessment na nagdudulot ng personalized feedback

1. Peer assessment - pagkatapos matuto, ang mga estudyante ay nagkakaroon ng pagkakataong suriin ang gawa ng mga kaklase, isang bagong kasanayan din na makatutulong sa pagtatrabaho. May limang magsusuri, at isa dito ay mula sa guro o staff ng paaralan para magkaroon ng makatotohanang pagtingin sa ginawa ng estudyante. Huling hakbang ang pagsusuring-pansarili.

Nakatutulong ito dahil nagkakaroon ng personalized feedback kahit na sa isang malakihan at digital na pagtuturo.

Fortune cookies na nagsasabi ng maari pang gawin ng estudyante

2. Talk about - Gamit ang Google Hangouts, maraming mga usapan ang pagpipilian ng estudyanteng salihan para makadiskusyunan ang ibang mga nagsipag-enroll sa kurso. Ayon sa guro, ang mga estudyanteng sumali sa Talk About ay mas naging magaling sa klase. Isang learning motivator ang pakikipag-usap sa iba na may iba't-ibang point of view.
May ilang talk about na sinasalihan ng iba't-ibang estudyante na nagmula sa iba't-ibang bansa
3. Micro experts - sa pagsusukat ng mga natutunan ng estudyante, kumuha ng mga micro experts na tinuruan na suriin ang gawa ng mga estudyante hindi ayon sa score, subalit batay sa attribute ng assignment ng mga estudyante.
