C & E holds 2nd leg of teachers’ seminar on senior high school
C & E Publishing, Inc. conducted the second leg of the senior high school (SHS) teacher’s seminar titled "Education: Revolution: Say Hi to Senior High" last January 25 at the C & E Information and Resource Center in Quezon City. More than 80 faculty members and school administrators from 34 private schools in Pampanga, Laguna, Quezon, Camarines Sur, and the National Capital Region attended the activity.
The seminar, which aims to address the concerns of educators regarding the implementation of the SHS program in 2016, was first conducted on November 27, 2015. Its success led C & E to turn it into a seminar series to benefit other schools nationwide.
For the second time, Dr. Dalisay Brawner and Dr. Isagani Cruz served as resource speakers.
Brawner, the vice president for academic affairs of the University of Makati (UMAK), provided an overview of the SHS program and shared an assessment of the pilot testing of the program at UMAK from school year 2012-2013 to school year 2015-2016 in her lecture titled “The SHS Pilot Program: Sharing the University of Makati’s Experience.”
Cruz, a former Department of Education undersecretary, discussed teaching methodologies and learning materials for the SHS program in his lecture titled “The Learner, the Textbook, and the Teacher.”
Workshops for each core subject were held after the lectures. Dr. Cruz, and UMAK college professors Maria Carmela Sison and Clarence Ella Alipio facilitated the workshops for mathematics, science, and English, respectively.
Aside from lectures and workshops, C & E also exhibited KITE Academy and evaluation copies of adaptations of science, mathematics, and English textbooks by international partner publisher Cengage Learning. KITE Academy is C & E’s own end–to–end learning solution brand that comprises tools for interactive lesson creation and distribution with classroom monitoring functionalities.
In his welcome message, Rene Mupas, C & E assistant vice president for higher education and CE-Logic, said that teachers, students, parents, and publishers must unite in facing the challenges brought by the changes in the curriculum.
The next leg of the seminar series will be held in Cebu and Davao in February.
According to our former Under Secretary Dr. Isagani Cruz, Philippine basic education are shorter than the other Asian Country and yet we wanted to be more competitive worldwide.
One thing I am proud of is that Filipino are more competitive than the other raise we produce quality Engineer’s, Nurses and Skilled worker, this is why we conquer the world in terms of employment.
If we want to be more competitive worldwide it’s time to produce quality people and work back for our country, and by doing so we need to improve our basic education.
Education is our trophy, our gold medal and our platinum card, and we are so proud coz we filipino are so educated and very conscious to our accent and to our lifestyle like sports and Ms. Universe.
Kid’s now a days as so called Millennial are so involve in technology this kids will not pass a day without their smart phone, tablet, laptop or smart watch coz for them these gadget are part of their lives. My son and the entire students in Manila Science uses all these types of gadgets as their regular school equipment’s to arm their education parse, without it these gadget they feel something is missing.
The point here is time to arm our basic education and lets make Quality Filipino to protect and lift up our beloved Country were we belong, as our old saying that “Edukasyon lang maipapamana naming mga magulang mo para sa iyo anak” so why not arm them the education and be the Best of the Best Worldwide.
