Learning while staying at home: Teachers, parents support DepEd distance learning platform

PASIG CITY, March 20, 2020–  As the entire Luzon and other parts of the country remain under enhanced community quarantine due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Department of Education (DepEd) launched DepEd Commons, an online platform for public school teachers to support distance learning modalities.

Since its inception last Wednesday, March 17, a total of 151,749 teachers have joined the said online platform, gaining support and praise from teachers as well as parents.

DepEd launches online platform to support distance learning
Published March 18, 2020, 9:43 PM

Like other sectors, the education system is bracing for the current and future impact of the COVID-19 in the country, especially in the learning of millions of students.

Pascua said DepEd is “silently launching” amid the ongoing enhanced community quarantine of Luzon and more than a week after the class suspensions from the time Metro Manila was placed under community quarantine.

“We have longed for the time when suspension of classes will not in any way obstruct nor delay the education of our school children,” Pascua said. “Whenever we experience typhoons, floods, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and armed siege, we worry about the lost days and opportunities for the next generation’s education.”

DepEd Commons can be accessed at https://commons.deped.gov.ph. Pascua noted that since it is in the initial phase, the DepEd Commons is “not complete nor perfect.”

Pascua said DepEd Commons “still has many limitations” like “contents are not yet that many, evaluation and ranking have not yet been included, separate channels for teachers, parents, students, and officials have not yet been established – but the times calls for its introduction.” Despite this, he noted the the current “circumstances have forced us to make it live.”

Pascua said DepEd Commons was “designed as a direct solution” to give access to online review materials and Open Educational Resources (OERs) during class suspensions and other similar circumstances. “These supplementary online instructional materials will be used as alternative forms in the teaching-learning process which is different from the usual face-to-face encounter.”

From the teachers, for the teachers and learners

OERs in DepEd Commons, Pascua said, are authored by public school teachers who are subject experts, properly cited and acknowledged.

“Teachers can retain, reuse, revise, remix, and redistribute the content by blending it with a learning management system to deliver a distance learning modality,” he explained. Additionally, teachers are also “encouraged to make their own OERs or to improve and customize those that are already uploaded.”

US donates ₱126 million to DepEd's distance education program
By CNN Philippines Staff
Published Jun 18, 2020 1:04:15 PM

More than 27.7 million Filipino children and youth are at risk of significant learning loss due to extended school closures and disruptions during the pandemic, with those at early grade levels being particularly vulnerable, USAID warned.

The primary level is also a "critical stage in young children’s education as they develop literacy, numeracy, and social-emotional skills, which are foundations for lifelong learning," the agency said.

With these in mind, USAID said it would assist Philippine education officials in providing teachers with instruction strategies and learning materials designed for use at home and in a classroom setting.

USAID added that it would aid DepEd in developing user-friendly assessment tools for educators to gauge their student’s learning competency.

It also vowed to partner with the private sector and local media to “disseminate advice through radio broadcasts and other platforms on how to help children continue learning during school closures.”

U.S. Provides Php126 Million to Support Filipino Children’s Education During Pandemic

Since the COVID-19 emergency began, USAID and the Philippine Department of Education (DepEd) have collaborated to ensure teachers continue to teach and children still learn while schools are closed.  USAID’s Php1.9 billion ($38.5 million) basic education project, ABC+: Advancing Basic Education in the Philippines, organized and facilitated consultations among education partners to identify and quickly roll-out innovative teaching and learning platforms.
