Schools in Cordillera soon to have electronic classrooms
by Thomas G. Tumpap

LA TRINIDAD, Benguet – Soon, chalks and “black” boards will no longer be used in the classroom.

Education Usec. Alain del Pascua, who was the keynote speaker during the recently concluded regional math and science fair said the DepEd is planning to build electronic classrooms all over the region to replace old blackboards that has dominated every classroom in the country.

Del Pascua said the e-classrooms will feature a sliding whiteboard where underneath is a 65 inches LED television. Teachers will be given wireless tablets which they could use to install their lessons and activities to be projected on these TV sets.

Del Pascua also said DepEd is also planning to phase out armchairs and replace these with tables and chairs.

Also discussed during the math and science fair were the lack of classrooms in the region to which the undersecretary committed to refer these matters to the DepEd secretary.

Teachers also raised their concerns for the allotment of funds for research, either initiated by the students or the teachers, and voluminous paper works such as monthly reports, accomplishment, and project completion reports apart from daily lesson plans, and checking of student outputs.

A self-confessed enthusiast in ornithology or the study of birds, del Pascua ended his talk by giving a prize to the student-participants who can name rare species of birds found in the Cordillera.
