Hi Naman Mandhan !

Thank you for tagging. I really hope for the use of technology here in our place but there are areas where indigenous people live that internet access is a problem. Thus, I have share the SLK project that we have here. I am getting more insights from people's feedback and I really appreciate you mentioning it for discussion.

Hi Peter!

Thank you for your response. I am glad to hear about incorporating the role of the parents in the kits.I will take this into consideration for that would really help develop the collaboration between teachers and parents/guardians. Now, I know that this setup will surely work for students with parents/guardians who are literate. The problem goes with students with parents/guardians with parents who cannot read and write. I am thinking that this can be addressed by involving a sibling or a relative in the process of teaching the students. Moreover, monitoring of the teachers on the improvement of the students, twice or more a week will also a great help.

Hope to hear more of your insights, Peter!

HI Emmanuel!
Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Actually, I have the same concerns for myself. However, I am really thinking of ways how will it work in our situation now here in the Philippines.

As per the online transfer of SLK contents, our regional heads have spearheaded the publications of SLK in the last two years. The problem is, they have not foreseen this pandemic and the possible need for restructuring of the curriculum. Thus, I can say that the printed SLKs have learning competencies aligned for a classroom-based instruction. And with this, revision of the SLK is needed.

As an educator, I also can say that we also have the problem here with the levels of education of parents. Thus, to address this concern, collaboration with the teacher is a must. If the parent is a non-reader, a sibling, or a relative could also help. The improvement should be monitored by the teacher, twice or more times a week.

I am also considering that this would be more successful with the help of sponsors that can purchase low-cost android phones for the kids that should be returned to the school after the school year. With android phones, printing of papers can be avoided and the teachers can use offline apps to monitor and check the outputs.

As per the opportunities for collaboration, it can be acquired from the activities in the SLKs. An example of this is a culminating activity involving collaborative poster making, in which each of the students will have to draw a part of the artwork about the lesson. And this artwork can be done house-to-house without working at it the same time.

I hope these insights satisfy your queries. :-)
