Reyes, News, Communication Management Office <br/><p>The Polytechnic University of the Philippines, through the Open University System, inked a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the Sandiwaan Center for Learning (SCL) for the PUP Education on Wheels on June 9, 2021.</p> <p>The PUP Education on Wheels is a University flagship program that aims to deliver quality education to the communities directly through a converted bus or mobile shipping containers converted into a classroom. </p> <p>In the MOA, signed by PUP President Dr. Manuel M. Muhi and SCL President and CEO Rev. Fr. Benigno P. Beltran, PUP will offer Sandiwaan baccalaureate programs with the initial offering of Bachelor of Science in Office Administration specifically on Medical Transcription, while the Sandiwaan will oversee the recruitment of students and the Learning Resource Center. </p> <p>The Education on Wheels is targeting 40-50 students in the initial offering and aims to reach more youth who do not have access to education through a community-based set-up as the Education on Wheels continues to roll.  </p> <p>The project will roll along the areas of Smokey Mountain to deliver education to the Youths of Tondo. This will give them the opportunity to learn skills for in-demand jobs, thus, will give them a better chance to get employed in the different companies in the Philippines and even abroad.  </p> <p>This MOA between PUP and Sandiwaan is a rebirth project since PUP OUS has already been with Sandiwaan for almost 20 years now where the trainers provided educational expertise to the out-of-school youths in Tondo. According to Fr. Beltran, almost 90% of those who took the program were able to get employed upon finishing the program. </p> <p>Also present during the MOA signing were Vice President for Research, Extension, and Development Dr. Anna Ruby P. Gapasin, OUS Executive Director Dr. Carmencita L. Castolo, and the Education on Wheels committee members.<br /> <br /> <img alt="" class="image image-full" src="https://scontent.fmnl17-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.6435-9/198089812_327476409041249_4052250292845242392_n.jpg?_nc_cat=108&ccb=1-3&_nc_sid=730e14&_nc_eui2=AeFb9I5LI0F9CC7NtBPOBYV5iD7O9qq4Ri6IPs72qrhGLqypgi-26dvosZb7mgXNp7m-c5vu8yl8mz_UfwZvsmQI&_nc_ohc=Mh4gnTnPHnsAX9_qlGG&tn=RcgxFLr-2dM_QY7s&_nc_ht=scontent.fmnl17-1.fna&oh=5518cb9766353928d46fc4812e14cd1b&oe=60CCC49B" /></p> <br/><a href="http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=RRfe5vypRPI%3d">View this article in PUPWebSite</a> Mon, 14 Jun 2021 14:49:00 GMT http://www.pup.edu.ph/news/?go=RRfe5vypRPI%3d PUPLHS delegates join in PED XING XII: Politics Camp Aira Mae Golez, News, Communication Management Office <br/><p>PUP LHS students showcased their skills and talents in different competitions in the event conducted by the University of the Philippines Political Society called PED XING XII: Politics Camp, a conference that intends to strengthen youth political participation in the Philippines, June 8.</p> <p>Nine PUP Laboratory High School students competed in four various categories. </p> <p>Ms. Rhomilynn Alejo participated in the English category of essay writing, and Ms. Nicole Carino in the Filipino category. </p> <p>“Habang tumatagal, lumalawak, lumalaki, at lumalalim na ang mga opinyong naipapahayag sa “social media” na maging ang isang payak na mambabasa ay mahihirapang unawain ang mga impormasyong iyon.

We all share the same stories on how we achieved freedom. And so, we should also have the same purpose in preserving it. Rather than discouraging and crucifying those who are selfless enough to turn their beliefs into actions, we should keep in mind that what makes a person a hero is not what he has done for himself but for what he has done for others.”</em></p> <p>Five of the delegates, Mr. Angelito Tungol, Ms. Carmilalyn Calagui, Ms. Crystal Layola, Ms. Cassandra Umania, and Mr. Roman Lopez, showcased their skills through the project proposal writing category, while Ms. Naomi Amala excelled in digital poster making. </p> <p>More so, Mr. Prince Joey B.

She also emphasized in her presentation the importance of future-focused learning and the concept of interaction, discovery, learning, and sharing of new ideas that promote and contribute to the learner’s success.</p> <p>“Technology Education is now a default,” Dr. Samson said. “Tayong mga teachers, we are also learners… Artificial Intelligence (AI) could never replace teachers. The personal warmth, affection, inspiration learning, and wisdom that teachers offer cannot be replaced by AI,” she answered when asked if there’s a possibility teachers can be replaced by AI or the simulation of human intelligence in machines.</p> <p> </p> <p>Meanwhile, Ms. Agunod in the topic, “Mobilizing Microsoft Office PowerPoint Traversing Digital Learning” discussed the concept of “gamification” concerning the use of PowerPoint in teaching in the new platform of learning. She shared numerous strategies and templates teachers and pre-service teachers can adapt in teaching the new generation of learners who most likely are technology-reliant children.</p> <p>“I make it a point na may variation ang activities. That it caters to different learning styles. Nasa disenyo ng iyong pagtuturo kung paano mo sila [mag-aaral] maeengganyong lumahok,” Ms. Agunod said.</p> <p> “Kasabay ng pag-usbong ng teknolohiya, hindi dapat nawawala ang personal touch mula sa mga guro.
