The future of learning will be discovered soon by Globe and DLS-CSB

IMG20180607115512


Globe MyBusiness and De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde signed a MOA for a three year research grant that will be used in Philippine education. The grant is about the research for digital learning, once proven effective, the research can be applied in school and also be part of an educator's way of teaching to their students.

Here's what we learned from the MOA signing

- the research grant will be used to fund two academic researchers to be conducted by full time DLS-CSB faculty who are screened after a rigorous selection process to promote further research in the field of digital learning wherein available technology will be used in order to effectively enhance one's learning experience without replacing traditional methods

- faculty candidates will have to propose research topics that revolve around digital learning and future trends: teaching and learning, pedagogy, or learning spaces in Philippine education

- if selected, the grantees will be given an entire school year to complete the research which will then be presented at a colloquium.


IMG20180607120133

Why they need to research for the future of learning?

Because in this generation, students now have shorter attention spans, and they know how to operate devices with little no coaching, and have direct access to information, whether it is validated or not,on the internet. The advances in technology have shaped the way we learn in significant ways.

They did this already last year when they invited educators and teacher in Pampanga, Globe MyBusiness successfully launched the PRISM workshop and seminar series, a professional development program designed t help Filipino educators in K-12 and high education, to become proficient in technology-enabled instruction and content development

We saw the tools used by educators, and most it are based in laptop, PC or mobile devices, they utilized the power of the cloud and Google and Im impressed that the new teaching tools based in tech are much more attention grabbing. Im sure students can learn more while having fun.

DSC_0106

After attending a lunch event at Spiral Manila, I was with Ted Claudio and Aaron Nomo and we decided to go to SM MOA to do some photo walk at the bay side area.

BLOG FEED
My last blog post was 2 weeks ago, I was so busy with these travel projects and also events, my time at home is limited because I’m working with the Toycon team in organizing the event and helping them with the program and digital promotions. I was planning to stop blogging for this month of May, but I need to continue my personal project so that I can earn a little cash.  It was different from my previous years that I can sit down and relax and wait till I get the next paycheck but then this year is different, My blogging activities slow down for awhile, because Im not prepared and organized whenever Im at home.

Lots of things I need to attend –personal life, family, pet cats, travel to our province, fix our event, and I can’t stand with the summer heat because I always drop dead at around 1pm because its too hot and I get sick because of the heat. To beat the heat,  I visit Starbucks everyday just to finish some work load for our event and also manage some content for my blog, but expenses are growing everyday and I should work more so that I can move freely, but income generation for my year is so slow and maybe its time to cut expenses and also be smart in using my money.  Grabe...going back again to project trabaho, ipon, travel enjoy.

Day 2 adventure starts so early in the morning, so we woke up at around 5am to prepare for our super early breakfast. Because we got an advise from our tour guide that we should visit this cafe in Siargao and the earliest time they open is at around 6am, the cafe is also a popular to tourist because of the healthy food they make. I dont have a clue what the cafe can offer, but I just want a hot coffee that day and also a sliced of bread with butter.

Hey guys! I'm back in my blogging desk and welcome to my 1st ever new blog series featuring our trip to Siargao Islands. It took me two three months to finish this blog post series, and a almost 2-3 weeks recovery when I lost my voice when I was in Siargao, I think the virus in my system stayed longer during my trip and I thought that I will be okay. But through out the 4 days trip, I survived and thanks to the people around me for helping me get better.
