Moreover, the team was allocated a budget of Php. 60,000 for the whole duration of the activities which shall conclude in the showcasing and printing of action researches by the month of December, 2009.

With this, the value of action research among teachers shall hopefully be inculcated and appreciated and thereby enkindle in them the enthusiasm and passion for investigating effective practices in using ICT’s in order to solve perennial instructional problems in the classroom.
