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
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.

Join us at the 3rd PLUGin Singapore Edutech Meetup on 24th October 2019 at Developer Space @ Google Singapore for a panel discussion on education of the future generations. Marcin Wojnowski, Founder and CEO at NUADU is one of the panelists.
Emerging technologies are transforming the way we design, build, distribute and consume products. The industries of the future will require different kinds of skills set to compete and sustain. Institutions and government agencies need to rethink how to re-skill not only the current workforce but also educate the future generation in and with the emerging, gamified and immersive technologies such as IoT, Machine Learning, XR, Robotics.
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.
