DepEd assures printing of modules is on schedule

As it braces for the crucial weeks before the opening on Oct. 5, the Department of Education (DepEd) assured the reproduction of printed modules to be used by students in public schools for distance/blended learning is right on track. DepEd Undersecretary for Curriculum and Instruction Diosdado San Antonio said that the reproduction as well as the distribution of printed Self Learning Modules (SLMs) are ongoing in various regions and divisions nationwide. During the Sept. 14 virtual presser, San Antonio said that when it comes to printing of modules, “73.36 % of the division offices are on track.” He noted that this figure represents 157 out of 214 Schools Division Offices (SDOs) nationwide. San Antonio noted that there are also some regions that completed the printing of SLMs including Regions II, IV-A, IV-B, IX, and XII. “All these SDOs have reported that they completed almost 100 % of the reproduction,” he said.In Metro Manila, San Antonio said the SDOs are currently distributing modules for the students. With the help of the local government unit, students in public schools located in the National Capital Region (NCR) will receive printed modules. San Antonio, during the House of Representatives’ ( Committee on Appropriations deliberation on the budget allocation for the DepEd on Tuesday, also noted that in some areas, the distribution of modules “will most likely be on a weekly basis.” When it comes to approaches in delivering distance modalities this school year, San Antonio said that DepEd “offered several options.” For those learners with gadgets and with access to the Internet at home, they will do online distance learning. For those who do not have access to the internet but with access to gadgets, they will be doing modular digital wherein the “learning resources will be sent to the learners through flash drives or in any other means and they will be open these at home.” Of all the options, San Antonio said that modular printed is the “most popular choice of families even in areas – which we believe – they have access to gadgets or Internet.” These students will use printed SLMs. DepEd will also make use of TV and radio – “essentially to supplement the other modalities.” “The approach really is blended, distance learning,” San Antonio explained. Aside from printed and offline SLMs, textbooks aligned with the Most Essential Learning Competencies (MELCs), activity sheets and learning plans prepared by teachers will also be used. “Essentially, the learning will happen at home,” San Antonio said. He added that the learning approaches will also not be uniform because local DepEd officials were “empowered” to contextualize the Learning Continuity Plan (LCP) depending on their respective circumstances......»»

Lawmakers relieved over decision to postpone classes; chides DepEd on unpreparedness

Lawmakers heaved a sigh of relief over the decision of government to postpone the resumption of classes from August 24 to October 5, saying that this exposed the Department of Education’s unpreparedness in pushing for the original schedule for opening schools. House of Representatives (ALVIN KASIBAN / MANILA BULLETIN / FILE PHOTO) This developed as Quezon City Rep. Precious Hipolito Castelo called on government to remove taxes imposed on computers, mobile phones and other gadgets that would be used by students and teachers in virtual and blended learning. “Removing taxes will considerably reduce the cost of these devices and gadgets, and make them affordable to poor learners and teachers,” she said. ACT Teachers Partylist Rep. France Castro said as a result of the postponement, the DepEd must now take advantage of the additional time to implement health and safety guidelines for teachers, non-teaching personnel, students and their families. On the other hand, Kabataan Partylist Rep. Sarah Jane Elago chided DepEd for refusing to accept suggestions about its original plan for class resumption, saying that the decision to move it to October 5 indicated an admission on the part of the department that it was not prepared to open on August 24. “Maaga pa lang  dapat ay naging bukas na ang DepEd sa rekomendasyon nito keysa itinanggi pa ang mga hinaharap na suliranin ng mga guro at kawani sa paghahanda para sa blended distance learning (DepEd should have been open to suggestions early instead of refusing to admit the problems facing teachers and staff in preparing for blended distance learning),” said Elago.    Castro urged DepEd to provide adequate funds for the procurement of personal protective equipment and finance the transportation expenses of teachers and non-teaching personnel as part of the preparations for the October 5 opening. “The Department of Education must use this time to comprehensively study and implement concrete plans for the safe and quality reopening of schools that will be accessible to every child,” said the teachers representative. Meanwhile, Castelo said the problem in virtual learning that is facing teachers and students may be addressed if government steps in to reduce the cost of much-needed computer and communications gadget. Earlier, Cavite Rep. Abraham “Bambol” Tolentino urged the Department of Trade and Industry and the Department of Information and Communications Technology to take action against the overpricing of gadgets. Tolentino, chairman of the House Committee on Accounts,  noted that as a result of the high demand for computers and communications gadgets, unscrupulous traders have made the prices of units for sale very restrictive to ordinary students and parents......»»
