Some students will take the fast track to learning this coming school year.
Students from Don Bosco Technical Institute in Makati, Siena College of Taytay, Morning Dew Montessori, St. Paul College of Makati, San Sebastian College-Recoletos, Paref Woodrose, Hope Christian High School, First Asia Institute of Technology and Humanities and Colegio de San Juan de Letran of Calamba will be among the fortunate ones in the world who will benefit from one of the most advanced tool for learning.
These students will learn about their Science, Math, English, Filipino and Araling Panlipunan using the web. Now the internet will no longer be just for surfing, playing games, chatting or watching videos. It now becomes a learning tool for elementary and high school students with Genyo e-Learning of Diwa Learning Systems, the country's leading educational publisher and leader in ICT integration in education.
Genyo e-Learning is the same online program being used by most students in
These students’ lessons in will be delivered via the World Wide Web, so classroom discussions come alive with interactive creative and multi-media contents such as interactive quizzes, charts, colorful graphics, animations, video and audio clips.
Aside from enjoying these visuals during classrooms discussions, these students can do their seat works or exams online. Talk about high tech. Plus, if they still have time, they get to enjoy Genyo’s fun and educational games that are also in sync with their current lessons.
Plus, learning goes beyond the four corners of the classrooms. Students can log on to the site using their personal password to do some advance readings or review previously discussed topics in the classrooms. This allows for more student-centered learning, as students’ learning pace differs.
"This is especially timely since recent studies show that students respond better to electronic, interactive methods of learning," according to Mr. Jose Maria T. Policarpio, Executive Director of Diwa Learning Systems.
Genyo e-Learning also includes On-Line Learning Management System; Teacher Trainings; Technical Support; e-Learning Strategic Management Services; Marketing Support and Visiting Learning Integration Specialist.
Mr. Policarpio added that one of the key benefits of the integrated e-learning program is increased sharing of ideas. Sharing will no longer be hindered by limited discussion time or by a student's natural shyness as there are portals for real time chat or graded debates on various topics that can be moderated by the instructors or initiated by the students themselves. With this, everyone gets a say, not just the most talkative.
The online discussions make the teachers more approachable, so they need not wait for hours that are convenient for teachers to discuss their concerns.
These benefits all create a superior learning experience that equips students with the skills necessary to compete in the 21st century workplace.
