Technology? Genyo on the dot
Grade School winning entry by Adrianne Jane B. Patinio of Grade 6 – St. Francis de Sales
Nowadays, people are fond of technology. They use it for almost everything- from cell phones to computers. Now, you can study through technology using the computer and going to a site named “Genyo E-Learning”.
Genyo is powered by DIWA Learning and is a site where you can study various lessons in school, whether study in advance or just for a review. You can also answer quizzes in there, and play educational games. Some people might think of the term ‘educational games’ as boring, but Genyo added a thrill to it. If you got a high score in one of its games, your name will be seen by people who uses Genyo throughout the country and be considered as a smart person. Who doesn’t like to be smart?
Throughout the decades, people are developing technology, and on this year, 2011, it has developed more than you can imagine. My point is that, almost everybody likes technology and they spend most of their time on computer doing nonsense activities without even learning. I think this is the reason why DIWA initiated the making Genyo. You don’t have to download it and wait for a long time. You just have to type a few words on the address bar of your Internet browser, login using your account, and there you are, studying through technology which everybody wants to experience. Believe me, I know some people who do including myself.
They also created Genyo because they noticed that young people nowadays are playing non-educational games such as DOTA which unconsciously teaches them about violence. As we know, mature and adult people especially the parents of the players don’t like violent kids because it will ruin their reputation as their parents who taught them how to be well-mannered. Another issue is that kids spend their time on social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, and etcetera. My point is that they go to these sites or play online games first, before they study and go over with their homeworks which is very unbecoming as responsible students.
Why not risk these things for Genyo? Here you can learn things in advance, study lessons in hard subjects, play games and get your name on the leader board, answer quizzes, and more importantly study while having so much fun! Pupils learn their lessons more by having fun. What are you waiting for? Join Genyo E-Learning now and have so much fun!
GENYO: Fun Interaction between Teachers and Students; A Win-Win Idea
High School winning entry by Angelica Flores
Choosing a school perhaps is one of the hardest decisions a parent will make for their children. Tuition fees, school facilities, school location, and quality of education are just some of the usual factors that help parents determine the right school.
Parents nowadays, however, take a closer look on how schools use technology as a form of teaching. Even though parents are having a hard time in saving money for tuition fee, they still consider enrolling their child in an expensive school for the best quality of education. That’s why Diwa Learning System’s Genyo E-Learning was more than willing to collaborate with schools in giving children an excellence in education, in a modern and more exciting kind of way making the money, worth it.
More and more schools are now subscribing in Genyo E-Learning Program, including ours. What is this Genyo all about? What does it have that makes schools go curious about it? What does it do to children like me? What benefit can we get from it? Let’s see.
Genyo E-Learning is an online interactive portal that supports school teachers in carrying out lessons for the students. It is equipped with interactive and multi-media components. As we all know, children nowadays are all into computers and technology and any of that nature. That is why; interacting with them through computers and technology would help the teacher gain their interest in the subject easier. Once the teacher gains their interest, the students will now be able to retain their memory regarding the subject, effortless. It’s a win-win idea, isn’t it?
Most common problem of students like me is that when we find a certain subject boring, and the teacher discusses it in the same way we find it, we lose our interest, probably resulting to sleeping, chatting with our friends, and not listening in class, disrespecting the educator in front of us. That’s why personally, I love this idea of E-learning portal. It brought back our enthusiasm, and our teachers too, are now having a fun time in teaching. It gave us a reason to wake up every morning and prepare for school.
Though too much exposure to computers can harm people, with the proper limit and use, Genyo e-Learning will survive. I am supporting this program. I wonder if it will still be alive when our generation gives birth to a new generation in the future. Because if it still is, without hesitation, I will enroll my child in a school subscribed to Genyo e-Learning. I would be happy to share with him the same learning experience I had. It surely is the best, thanks to Genyo.
