BAGUIO CITY, July 19 (PIA) — The Department of Education – Schools Division Baguio City is set to pilot test the different distance learning modalities in  four schools in two barangays before the formal school opening of school year 2020-2021.

DepEd-Baguio Assistant Schools Division Superintendent Soraya Faculo said that the DepEd Baguio together with its stakeholders and partners will be pilot testing the learning modalities which the DepEd would be using during this time of COVID-19 pandemic when the regular face to face learning is not advised.

Faculo said the pilot test would involve at least 2,826 learners from the Guisad Valley National High School and Bonifacio Elementary School in Barangay Crescencia Village and Happy Hallow National High and Happy Hallow Elementary School in Happy Hallow Barangay. The DepEd’s Alternative Learning System is also included in the pilot testing.

DepEd-Baguio City Assistant Schools Division Superintendent Soraya Faculo said that they would be pilot testing the distance learning modalities in Barangays Crescencia Village and Happy Hallow to look into the challenges to be encountered once the classes open on August 24. RMC PIA-CAR 

The schools were selected on geographic location to look into the challenges   learners in different areas in the city may encounter.

Faculo said that Crescencia Village is located near the central business district with better internet signal while Happy Hallow barangay is located several kilometers away from the central business district and has less internet connectivity.  

Among the learning modalities to be tested are  the Modular Distance Learning which allows learners to use self-learning modules in print or digital format/electronic copy, whichever is applicable in the context of the learner, and other learning resources like Learner’s Materials, textbooks, activity sheets, study guides and other study materials; Online Distance Learning through the use of various technologies accessed through the internet and TV/Radio-Based Instruction using the cable TV and radio programs in the city.

 

The DepEd will also use blended learning that combines face-to-face with any or a mix of online distance learning, modular distance learning, and TV/Radio-based Instruction. Blended learning will enable the schools to limit face-to-face learning, ensure social distancing, and decrease the volume of people outside the home at any given time.

During the launching of the Opening of Classes Initiative and Support Services  last  July 16, DepEd-Baguio City Schools Division Superintendent Marie Carolyn Verano presented to the the different stakeholders and partners the learning modalities and the  Learning Continuity and Operational Plan which will be implemented in the city of Baguio for  school year 2020-2021.

In his message, Congressman Mark Go lauded the initiatives of the DepEd-Baguio in coming up with plans that would ensure continued education for the learners from elementary and high school despite the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

He said that the initiative which would be pilot tested in the different schools would help the city government, the DepEd and its partners determine the strengths and weaknesses which should be addressed as the distance learning starts on August 24, 2020.
