Nueva Ecija schools adjusting to new normal amid pandemic
The Department of Education (DepEd) has cited the best practices among the learning continuity plans developed by Schools Division Offices (SDOs) in Nueva Ecija province in spite of the challenges brought by the pandemic.
In a Philippine Information Agency report, DepEd Regional Director May Eclar highlighted some of the most effective methods designed by the schools in response to health crisis.
“Different learning resources were developed by Nueva Ecija SDO and delivered in various platforms such as virtual science classrooms, video lessons for DWNE-DepEd Hour, and innovative instructional materials prepared by teachers,” Eclar said in the report.
She added that some of the materials sourced from authorized platforms such as Department of Science and Technology Science Education Institute and United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization are stored, posted and made available in a created Facebook page.
In line with its health awareness and advocacy campaign, Cabanatuan City SDO developed a School QR code to monitor the information of clients that will enter the school for easy contact tracing.
“This School QR code is a must for every school client to present whenever they enter the school vicinity especially during the distribution and retrieval of modules in response to Basic Education Learning Continuity Plan and in connection with the basic health protocols,” Eclar said.
Gapan City SDO, on the other hand, initiated the “Self-Learning Kit Honesty Booth” which focuses on the safe and systematic distribution and retrieval of learning kits among K-12 learners.
“Given that the Modular Online and Offline were identified as the most appropriate modalities for our learners in San Jose City, the SDO organized the Division Online Learning Class to cater students that opted to avail the online modality,” Eclar said
Another best practice cited by DepEd was the “Four o’ Clock English-Time Habit in Teaching and Speaking English Grammar,” an intervention program of Science City of Muñoz SDO.
“The four o ’Clock habit is a figurative term which means after all the works or modules of the day, the learners will keep on sharing the joy of improving themselves,” Eclar said.
“It allows teachers to constantly correct grammar and improves comprehension of students with poor reading and comprehension ability,” she added.
