This year’s batch of enrollees at the MSU-IIT LET Review Center completed a free, five-day Seminar-Workshop on Assessment and ICT Multimedia Integration in the 21st Century Classrooms in April and May.
The training would help prepare the participants for future jobs especially teaching where ICT skills and trainings could give them the edge in getting employed.
The same seminar-workshop was conducted twice, on May 26-30, 2014 and on June 9-13, 2014 at the CED ICT Laboratory and World Links Training Center to accommodate 74 participants.
The first three days of the training covered the Intel Elements Course on Assessment in the 21st Century Classrooms which offered an in-depth look at assessment so that the participants could plan, develop and manage student-centered assessments later in their own classrooms.
The last two days focused on UNESCO’s ICT Multimedia Integration for Teaching and Learning which gave participants a broader, yet more refined knowledge of ICT so they may successfully integrate multimedia resources in their lessons.
The MSU-IIT LET Review Center trainers or resource persons and facilitators were the CED ICT Team composed of Dr. Ruben L. Abucayon, Prof. Shelanee Theresa P. Ruales, Prof. Vita S. Caparoso, Prof. Amelia T. Buan, Ms. Roxan A. Consolacion, Ms. Avril Joy R. Ramayan, Dr. Rebecca M. Alcuizar, Prof. Joy R. Magsayo, and Mr. Jun Karren V. Caparoso. Ms. Vanessa B. Zabala, served as training manager.
The participants did not only learn new things in the training but also received certificates of completion during the five-day training, or an equivalent of 40-hour training credit. An ICT training may exempt them from taking the computer literacy examination of DepEd for teacher applicants. –by Jun Karren V. Caparoso, CEd for OC-OPI
As part of its ongoing “ICT Integration in Education” program, the College of Education (CED) once again partnered with the Department of Education-Iligan City Division in a workshop on ICT Multimedia Integration for Teaching and Learning on April 29-30, 2014.
Held at the CED ICT Laboratory, the workshop is the first of the several trainings that CED is planning to offer as a Center of Excellence for Teacher Education and one of UNESCO’s Resource Distribution and Training Centers (RDTC) in the Philippines.
About 20 Information and Communications Technology (ICT) coordinators from both elementary and secondary levels of DepEd participated in the workshop. These participants, as envisioned by the Dep Ed are in turn expected to conduct a similar workshop to their colleagues in their respective schools during the second quarter of this year.
The participants acquired a broader, more refined knowledge of ICT after successfully completing the UNESCO Bangkok E-Learning Series on ICT Education. They also identified the appropriate entry points for UNESCO resources and successfully integrated them in their lesson plans.
During the closing program the participants received 7 UNESCO Resource CDs, Certificates of completion for completing the two modules of UNESCO E-Learning Series on ICT in Education, and certificates of participation. Awards were also given to the lesson plans (1 for elementary and 1 for secondary) that integrated multimedia in the most relevant and creative way.
The two-day activity was organized by the CED ICT Team with the following as resource persons and facilitators: Dr. Ruben L. Abucayon, Prof. Shelanee Theresa P. Ruales, Mr. Osuardo A. Pabatang, Ms. Vita S. Caparoso, Ms. Roxan A. Consolacion, Prof. Joy R. Magsayo, Ms. Vanessa B. Zabala and Mr. Jun Karren V. Caparoso. Mr. Joel Q. Galibo of the Maria Cristina National High School also served as facilitator. The workshop was managed by Ms. Avril Joy R. Ramayan.
