Education Continuity Plan Webinar

How is education possible during a global pandemic? These and other questions were addressed by the five-day Education Continuity Plan webinar series for teachers and school administrators. Big Pond Enterprises, in partnership with NUADU and Microsoft Philippines, organized the online sessions which ran from May 25-29 2020.

The webinar series gave a holistic view of the current state of our education system, looking beyond the mindset of “We can’t have face-to-face classes so we’ll make do with online classes.” Instead, resource persons from the education and technology sectors provided innovative solutions to help teachers reach their goals during the new normal.

Day 1: Philippine Education Landscape Under the New Normal by Mr. Paolo Balinas

Mr. Balinas emphasized that clear leadership and policies are crucial. He also highlighted how the pandemic has opened new ways of thinking education, with the widespread acceptance of using cloud technologies in teaching and filling educational gaps. Microsoft Teams can serve as the hub where such new learning modes can be facilitated.

Formulating Your School’s Education Continuity Plan by Ms. Cherylle Ramos

Ms. Ramos proposed that in a VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous) world, we need a solution that also has VUCA (vision, understanding, clarity, agility). She stressed that in building an education continuity plan, one must factor in leadership and culture, the teachers and their professional learning, the students’ learning experiences, assessment and accountability, and the needed infrastructure.

Day 2: Pedagogical Framework in Choosing the Right Content and Tools by Ms. Emie Baylon

Ms. Baylon showed how teachers can establish a good workflow for remote learning. She identified the key elements, including setting up of a conducive learning environment while factoring in the realities of social distancing and other restrictions. She also emphasized that one’s purpose directs the use of technology, which can aid in creating meaningful learning environments and set the pace of learning.

Day 3:  Strategies on How to Use Microsoft 365 and Teams for Online Teaching by Mr. Raymond Africa

Mr. Africa showed how to use Microsoft 365 and Teams in conducting remote learning, a strategic, measured approach to ensure students’ meets are met. He also pointed out that NUADU is linked to Microsoft 365 and Teams, making it a seamless and effective learning management system.

Day 4:  Automate Assignments and Assessments to Validate Student Learning by Mr. Sylvester Escobia

Mr. Escobia gave a detailed presentation on how NUADU provides a full home-based learning solution, providing not only automated assessment but also a tool for the preparation and facilitation of lessons. He then said that the current learning continuity plan need not be a stop-gap solution, but could be implemented into regular educational instruction even after the pandemic.

Day 5: Upskill Through Microsoft Certification and Generate Additional School Income by Mr. Francis Hernandez

Mr. Hernandez presented how Microsoft certification provides skills needed by new employers, allowing students new opportunities for employment, for teachers to build new competencies and career growth, and for schools to gain value over other schools, offer these certification programs relevant to current technologies, and consequently more revenue.

What You Need to Know About the DepEd Learning Continuity Plan

To get the education of the country’s students back on track, the Department of Education (DepEd) presented its Basic Education Learning Continuity Plan (BE-LCP) to the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) last May 11, 2020. The IATF approved the BE-LCP, as well as the proposal to “open” schools on August 24, 2020.

A learning continuity plan seeks to ensure that students’ learning progresses even amidst disasters such as natural calamities, storms, fires, and pandemics. This plan overcomes obstacles created by the disasters through innovative means of teaching and learning, keeping students on track with their courses. With today’s COVID-19 pandemic, the main obstacle that has to be overcome is the need for social distancing, making face-to-face interaction impossible. Therefore, any learning continuity plan to be implemented today has to account for this limitation.

Focus on the Essentials

Learning continuity should be based less on method and more on objectives — what do we want our students to learn and accomplish? From there, we can determine the methods we will employ for the four aspects of our continuity plan:

  • Communications – Ways of providing direct teaching, asking and answering questions, discussing the lesson, and communicating instructions about activities and other matters about the course
  • Materials – Includes the content lessons are based on, references, and materials needed for learning activities
  • Learning activities and assignments – Activities that would facilitate learning that could include role-playing, case studies, group discussions and presentations, and problem-solving
  • Assessments – Means of measuring the progress of the students’ learning
Four aspects of the Learning Continuity Plan are: Communication, Materials, Learning Activities, and Assessment

Given our current situation, all four aspects of learning continuity should be geared towards distance learning to keep our students safe by maintaining social distance.

Innovative Use of Technology

If we are to craft our learning continuity plan towards distance learning, we will need to innovate our methods and use current technologies. Some teachers have already used email as a means for submitting papers so that students can submit without needing to physically go to the teacher’s office. But with quarantine measures in place, we have to go further than that.

Collaborative platforms like MS Teams provide a venue for virtual classes. Here, you can give direct instruction, facilitate discussions, and conduct activities complete with presentation slides.

On top of that, you can also employ educational apps like NUADU where you can assess your students’ progress and get recommended activities based on that assessment. What’s more, the platform also gives you access to interactive content that you can use in teaching your course.

Continuing Beyond the Calamity

Your learning continuity plan need not be a stop-gap solution for a crisis. The innovations you introduce could be implemented into your regular course instruction even after the calamity. Doing so opens new ways of learning and pursuing the course for you and your students. What’s more, the continuity plan ensures that learning continues even if major disasters occur.

Education Continuity Plan Webinar

How can you implement the learning continuity plan with the use of technology? Find out more by attending the free Education Continuity Plan Webinar Series by NUADU, Microsoft Philippines, and Big Pond run from 25 May – 29 May. Learn from Edutech practitioners and innovators about how your school can continue the learning experience beyond the four walls of the classroom.

When Technology Meets Assessment

As schools become increasingly equipped with devices and wireless access, a growing proportion of the assessments are now administered online or through devices such as computers or tablets.

Education has been a priority for many centuries. In recent years, the world has seen an unprecedented increase in technology that has transformed education sector at many levels. For instance, digital transformation of educational institutes where wireless technology is creating efficiencies for daily routine instruction, consider augment reality which is creating real life scenarios to boost students learnings, have a look at the long list of online learning tools where the creative exchange between a teacher and a student in real time is boosting collaboration and overall performance of class projects. Similarly, the transformational effects of technology can be seen in digital assessments where data driven analysis is providing spot on strategies to bridge the missing learning gaps of students. In other words, digital assessments are generating data that can help in understanding student’s knowledge and then utilising the data to support instructional decisions. In addition, digital assessments also show an accurate view of the student’s knowledge at that moment in time.

When assessment is discussed as a topic, some of the common assessment types include formative and summative assessments. These two types are used extensively in today’s classroom to measure student’s learning and performance. Formative assessments take place typically after a chapter, unit or course. The use of tests, quizzes or assignments help educators to gauge students’ understanding on the subject matter. These assessments also serve as a mean to give feedback to the students before the final or summative assessments, so the students can bring their current skills and knowledge up to speed. Summative assessments, on the other hand, are usually planned at the end of each school year or the end of their studies. This is a final “hurdle” that students must complete and pass before they can progress to the next level.

As schools become increasingly equipped with devices and wireless access, a growing proportion of the assessments are now administered online or through devices such as computers or tablets. The use of technology allows students to take an assessment outside of the classroom, at their own pace and time. It also ensures that results are administered as feedback which are almost instantly available to students, without the long wait. The use of data analytics allows educators to see many relevant details such as how long it took students to answer questions or how many times a student failed to answer a question correctly before getting the right answer. With the deployment of technology in assessments, educators can tailor their teaching to the needs of the students, resulting in a more personalized way of learning for the student there by boosting their learning and understanding of the subject matter.

While there is little doubt about the advantages to use technology in assessments, question arises if digital assessments can improve the learning experiences for students. Do the digital assessments make the experience more interesting and engaging to learn for the students? Or will it become a distraction in class?

In the next few blogs, we will discuss how digital assessment backed by data not only helps to create an engaging class, but also improves students’ learning.
