JULY 15, 2011 – Queries, questions, and clarifications about Genyo e-Learning were answered through the Genyo Student Orientation, the first activity to start off another Genyorrific year.
La Consolacion-Caloocan, now on its second year of subscription, had its Genyo Student Orientation to third grade students conducted by the school’s in-house Learning Integration Specialists, Karen Salido (GS) and Geraldine Anasco (HS) at LACO Caloocan’s GS Computer Laboratory.
Students’ short attention span is regarded as one of the problems that teachers face in their classroom instruction. Many of the students find it hard to maintain their interest from the start of the lesson up to the end, oftentimes diverting their attention away from what’s being discussed. GS Learning Integration Specialist Karen Salido explained to the kids how GENYO will be able to hook their interest as they deal with scientific concepts, mathematical equations, and other lessons. Through GENYO’s interactive tutorials and modules, the students’ attention span will be stretched – with learning taking place while they point, click, and listen.
To let the students have a taste of the GENYO portal, a fun and exciting GENYO activity about Living and Non-living things followed after the orientation. Harvey B. Mandi, a Grade 3 student shared his experience about GENYO. He says, “I have learned a lot in the orientation. The Froggy Dance is so fun, too! When we already have our GENYO class, I will play educational games.”
