Learning resources are the materials used by teachers to enhance the skills of students, help in the
discovery of different aptitudes and provide assorted learning experiences to the students. All learning
resources must be contemporary and the person in-charge must know how to efficiently utilize it because
these learning resources support the effective implementation of the curriculum.

My Analysis
1. Were the learning resource/materials arranged properly according to their functions and

All learning resources or materials were arranged properly according their functions and characteristics.
The books inside the library were properly arranged as to their types and functions. The proper
arrangement of the learning resources help the teachers and students locate and bring convenience to
both teachers and students.
2. Do the guidelines and procedure facilitate easy access to the materials by the teachers?
Why? Why not?
The guidelines and procedures facilitate easy access to the materials in such a way that the guidelines
and procedures do not involve great exertion or discomfort on the part of the teachers or any users of it.
3. What are the strengths of this learning resource center?
The learning resource center develops and benefits the students in uplifting the quality of education. The
centers ability to bring the students from the old means of educating the students to the new means of
teaching the students adapt the drastic changes of the society embodies its power and encourages the
importance of education to the students.
4. What are its weaknesses?
A learning resource center weakness can only be determined by the resources they have. If the center
will not cope up with the updating technology, their center will be obsolete in aiding the students learning
process. As long as the learning center I have observed is concerned, I can say the only weakness I can
spot is their ability to orient each persons who will use their facilities especially when they are very loaded
with teachers who will use the resources available in the center.
5. What suggestions can you make?
I suggest that the learning resource center must be well planned and properly managed, so that it can
function in accordance to the significant contribution it can give to the learning society. A learning resource
center must be designed according to the interest of students, so that it will be attractive enough in
reinforcing the students learning.

1. Which of the materials in the learning resources caught your interest the most? Why?
It was the book that caught my interest because they were properly arranged according to their types and
functions. I can observe the proper maintenance with these resources because most of the books were
free from dust.
2. Which gadgets/materials are you already confident to use/operate?
The books, computer, projector and other materials that were related to multimedia presentation were the
gadgets or materials that give me a strong belief in my own ability to use or operate it. I can say that I
have the sufficient knowledge with these resources because I have been using these and I have seen
people operate it which makes it easier for me to know how to use it.
3. Which ones do you feel you need to learn more about?
I need to learn more about the use of computers in presenting topics. It is important for me to be familiar
and understand clearly its appropriateness and effectiveness in delivering a topic most especially that we
have new programs which can be used in presenting the topics. If I want to be a good teacher, I must be
good at adapting to these new programs because the only thing that can make me more effective in the
following years are these updates in this resource.

MANILA, Philippines Can you imagine a classroom without chalk and blackboard, manila paper,
cartolinas, one-fourth sheets of paper, pencils, erasers, and attendance sheets?

The leading Philippine educational materials publisher Vibal Publishing House Inc. and international
computer software company Microsoft have not only imagined it, they are working on making that a
Vibal and Microsoft, in cooperation with the Department of Education (DepEd), have partnered to create a
new kind of classroom set to enter the digital era.
They are making this possible through the introduction of e-textbooks that can be accessed by students
on tablet computers.
Chris Datol, operations manager of Vibals subsidiary Vibe Technologies Inc., said during the Annual
Microsoft Philippines Innovative Education Summit last March 2 that a child becomes smarter when he or
she uses a digital device and consumes digital material.
He cited a study conducted by the United Nations who found that students exhibited better performance
because of the highly visual and multimedia content that tablets can show to students.
E-textbooks will have multimedia features like educational videos, full-color pictures, instructional audio
content, customizable text, interactive quizzes, online connectivity allowing external links to resource
websites, study tips, and many more.
Teachers will be able to use the annotated teachers edition of the e-textbooks that includes a lesson
guide, answer keys, and teaching tips to help the teacher guide the students in using the e-textbooks.
Schools in Korea utilize tablet PCs for students while teachers use intelligent white boards, Datol said. A
survey of UNESCO rated Koreans as the most intelligent digital readers because they know how to
search for online content and adapt new skills especially in using technology, Datol said.
In June of 2011, Vibal distributed 1,000 tablets to public school students in Laguna that have built-in
Rizaliana classics. Dubbed as eRizal tablets, they were distributed in commemoration of the 150th birth
anniversary of the Philippine National Hero, Jose Rizal.
Foundation University in Dumaguete purchased eight Vibal e-textbooks for their iPad 2 units in July of
In September 2011, La Salle Greenhills rolled out an entire digital curriculum from their elementary to high
school honor classes using 14 e-textbooks in 500 Galaxy Samsung tablets. La Salle will issue another
5,000 tablets in 2012 to cover all students and teachers.
Digital tools for teachers
Michelle Casio, the Education lead of Microsoft Philippines, said that they not only would improve the
learning process of the students but also the teaching process of the teachers.
Microsoft offers various digital tools for teachers and school administrators that are 60 to 80 percent
[discounted] compared to commercial pricing, Casio said.
Its about giving the value. If you have our software there are a lot of tools that can be attached for
free, Casio said.
She reiterated that its not about making money out of the schools or out of the students. Its about
sharing the technology [and] its about learning.
Our priority really is to equip the students and the teachers [to] help them in the teaching and learning
process, Casio said.
During the summit, several school administrators shared their experiences of using digital tools in the
Miriam College shared their experience of using a number of programs from Microsoft for their financial
Benhur Ong, Dean of the School of Management and Information Technology of College of Saint Benilde,
shared how they were able to integrate technology into their curriculum.
We need to adopt technologies that will help increase the employability of our graduates, Ong said
during his speech.
Investment weight
Casio said that most of the weight of investments of Microsoft [for] education was in the public schools.
Our focus is the DepEd, because it is more than 90 percent of the [education] population, Casio said.
As of the 2010-2011 school year, there were 38,351 public elementary schools and 7,268 public
highschools, the latest figures obtained from the DepEd website showed.
On the other hand, there were 7,613 private elementary schools and 5,682 private highschools.

Casio said that they were not focusing on private schools because they can take care of themselves,
they have money and resources.
But we are not disclosing the private schools, we also help them, Casio added.
Through all the partnerships and investments being poured by Microsoft into the education sector of the
Philippines, classrooms, regardless of whether in a private or public school, might one day find no need
for chalks and blackboards. A digital classroom will no longer be something that is left to the imagination

My Target
At the end of this activity, I want to be competent enough in appraising the effectiveness of display
boards as learning resources.
An Observation Guide for Board Displays
Name of School Observed:
Date of Visit:
As I look around and examine the board displays, I have found out that every classroom has its own
board display. Some classrooms have a bulletin board for birthdays of students, classroom cleaners,
classroom officers, classroom activities and announcements. The most common content of the board
display are the topics to be discussed in a certain grading period.
I have seen three (3) board displays outside the classroom. I have foreseen that if I roam around
th whole classroom, I will see more than what I expected. Board displays were located in front of the
canteen, near the faculty room and also near the entrance gate. Most of it was announcements, activities
or events in school and etc. The announcements were written in a formal way that everyone can quickly
and clearly understand. The messages were clear enough as I read it and it can be easily understood
because there were no misspelled words or any inconsistencies in grammar. The information were
arranged past to latest and the materials used have a high quality that can last for a longer time. Board
display near the entrance of the gate was covered by a glass which gives protection to the content and
materials used.

Brief description of the bulletin board:
The board display contains different activities and events for a certain month. It was located near the
entrance gate where teachers, students and parents can see it.
Board display was covered by a

Did the board display design reflect the likes or interest of its target audience? Why?
or Why not?
The boards design definitely reflect the likes or interest of its target audience because of its style,
selection of colors and materials, the title and the theme which is very appropriate and aligned in its
purpose. Since it is made by certain students, I can say that everything being posted are being reflected
on the majority of the likes or interest of its target audience because the main target audience are also the
students. What is more important in the design is the content of the board which was really presented in a
comprehensive way.
2. Was the language used clear and simple for the target audience to understand? Why? Or
Why not?
The language used clear and simple for the target audience to understand. The font and size of the words
were formal enough to be read by the target audience and the words were also bold enough to be clearly
seen. The words used were appropriate to the level of the students where in the students who will read it
can understand its thought.
3. What do you think was the purpose of the board display? Was it effective? Why? Or Why
In my own point of view, the purpose of the boards was to convey information to the students such as
information about the content of the subjects, proper hygiene, values information and latest trends in the
society. It also serves as motivation tool for the students to do their best and as I look in it, it really works
for its purpose. The contents were appropriate enough of providing information. The boards content was
presented in a way that is very attractive to the audiences eyes.
4. What suggestions can you make?
I suggest of the rearrangement of some of the words to improve the way they convey much clear thought
of the announcements. The content must contain something new that gives opportunity to the student to
participate or interact. It is important to update the content every month. It would be also nice to add more
necessary and up-to-date contents which will invite the participation of the students aside from normal
information that it convey.

Name at least five skills that a teacher should have to be able to come up with effective
board displays. Elaborate on why each skill is needed.
Creative the teacher can create ideas in a limitless way
Informative the board display must have varied yet appropriate information
Idealistic the teacher must think of an idea of what his/her board display would look like and how it will
work for the learning of the target audience
Artistic- the teacher must have a sense of art in order to make an attractive board display
Resourceful resourcefulness of a teacher may contribute to the enhancement of the board
Which of the skills do you already have? Recall your past experiences in making board
displays. How do you practice these skills?
I have a sense of idealism and resourcefulness, a little of being creative, informative and artistic. It was in
my high school days when I tried making a board display. The content was the whole topic that covers our
third grading period. I learn how to make boarders and design a letter specifically the Old Text English
Style because that was my favorite font style. It was my first time to make a board display, thus I still need
to improve and practice those skills for future. I practice those skills every time I do artworks such as
making portfolios and scrapbooks.
Which skills do you need to develop? Reflect on how you can improve on or acquire these
I think I need to develop my artistic skills because in designing a board display, the effective skill in how to
combine colors, make designs appropriate to the theme and purposed of the board display, and to make it
attractive are very important. For me to attain it, I must practice it while I am still a student, thus I must
apply it every time Im doing an artworks such as portfolios and scrapbooks. There is also a need for me
to accept criticism from others towards my work in order for me to develop or improve my work. I also
need to develop my informative skills by reading books and magazines, searching through internet, and
most of all to be updated about the events or happenings in this world.

1. What are the features of a good slide presentation?
A good slide show presentation must be concise, direct to the point and insightful at the same time. It can
have transitions and animations to emphasize a point but should not be too much. Its design, lay-out and
formatting should be balanced with the concept presented.
2. Which of these features are present in the slide presentation you made?
Among the features mentioned above, the slide presentation I made has appropriate transitions and
animations, where the format and design is congruent to the concept presented it does not clutter the
3. Which features are not present in the slide presentation you made?
I am afraid that the slide presentation I made is neither short nor concise. Also, the text lay-out that I have
made does not follow the rule on six lines per slide, six words per line.

What difficulties, if any did you encounter in making the slide presentation? How did you
overcome them?
In making the slides, so far, the difficulty I encountered is choosing the information that should appear on
the slide, since there is a lot of information being discussed in the reference materials. To overcome them,
I read the summarized form of the lesson and from there come up with an outline that would make the
preparation of the slide easier.

Subject Area/ Topic: Theory of Evolution of Man
Grade/ Year Level: Grade 6
Big Ideas about the topic:
This topic will cover up about the different classification of men in accordance to Charles Darwins theory.
Before starting the proper discussion, I will give a brief introduction about the identity of Charles Darwin. I
will then start to feature interactive videos that will catch the interest of the students which will serve as an
introduction of the topic. After the introduction, I will present a PowerPoint presentation containing specific
information about the theory featuring images that will help the students picture out the description given
in the presentation. After the discussion, I will provide some flash cards and conduct a game that will help
them identify the evolution of men throughout the years.
The student will be able to identify the different classifications of men in visual or narrative approach.
The students will be able to compare and comprehend the differences between each classification.
The students will be able to make some conclusions about the observations they gathered throughout the

Date of Visit:
There are available learning resource that can be used with the topic I have chosen to
present in the school I visited. I have seen the following resources:
Flash Cards
The resources that I have seen are very appropriate for my target grade/ year level
because the grade I have chosen needs more interactive resources such as what I
mentioned above. I can make more customized flash cards containing some description
which will help the students familiarize the important details for each classification in the
topic. I can say that the ICT resources were often used in the discussions because it is
more convenient to use.

1. What skills did you have which helped you prepare the materials? What skills did you lack
made it difficult for you? (Technological Knowledge)
My skills in making PowerPoint presentation helped me in my preparation of the topic I want to
present. This skill helped me present the important information on the topic in a precise and
comprehensive manner.
2. Discuss some strategies on how you will use the materials you included here in this
episode. (Pedagogical Knowledge)
The interactive discussion is the teaching strategy I most recommend with the available
resources because this will enhance the teacher-student relationship by letting the students ask
their teacher about information. This strategy will help the students enjoy throughout the
discussion with the games that will not bore the students. I will also recommend conducting
recitations about the topic because this will enable the teacher figure out the things/ areas that
he/she needs to clarify, so that the students will fully understand the topic.
3. How well do you know the topic you have chosen? (Content Knowledge)
I have known this topic since I was in elementary. This topic is very interesting because this will
enable us to trace back our ancestors. This was the main reason why I would like to present this
topic, so that the students will have knowledge about where we came from.
4. Discuss the big ideas of this topic that you would want to focus on.
I want to focus on defining the identity of Charles Darwin and on the specific details of the
classifications of men as I accompany it with visuals. Before getting on the main topic, the
students needs to know who originated this theory. This is the reason why I need to give a brief
introduction about the life and works of Charles Darwin. The specifications

1. Reflect how your technological knowledge (TK), pedagogical knowledge (PK), and content
knowledge (CK) worked together in fulfilling the tasks in this episode.
I can say that my technological, pedagogical and content knowledge has a balanced contribution
in the fulfilment of my task in this episode. My knowledge in all aspects enabled me to formulate
ways in presenting the topic without over presenting it. I can say that my skills accompanied with
my passion enabled me to finish my task with the best that I can give.
2. What are some of the things you can do to enhance and enrich your technological,
pedagogical and content knowledge (TPACK) to be able to facilitate an active, interesting,
learning and fun-filled learning environment in the future?
I can improve my knowledge by searching for new information in the internet and at the same
time getting feedbacks from my future students, so that I could apply the appropriate and
appealing teaching strategies that will make me a better and effective teacher.

Topic: The Filipino Heroes
Grade/ Year Level:
The lesson that was presented in the school I visited was about the Filipino heroes. The
resources that the teacher was using is the laptop, projector and speakers. She presents the
lesson through a PowerPoint presentation with videos in between the discussions. I observed
that the teacher presented the topic in a confident and precise manner. Because she has
convenient aids in her discussion. I can see how the students are very attentive and eager with
the topic because of the amazement they have seen not only with how the teacher shown the
about these heroes, but also because of the story behind their heroic acts. I have seen an
affirming verbal response from the students because they actively asked questions after the
discussion about a certain hero. Their non-verbal response were really affirming because their
attention was intently focused on the teacher and her teaching resources.

1. Use the Technology Integration Matrix to analyse the class you observed. In what level of
technology integration do you think the teacher operated? Why?
The level of Technology Integration that the teacher used was in the entry level. The level I have
given for this observation I had was appropriate because the topic is about history which was very
broad enough to be utilized and acquired by the student alone. Through this level of technological
integration, the students will find it easier to learn about the past the helped in shaping the
present time.
2. Based on the Technology Integration Matrix, what is the characteristic of the learning
environment in the class that you observed? Point you observations that justify your
The characteristic of the technological integration that I have seen in the session I observed was
constructive. I have pointed this out because the resources were used to deliver necessary
information of the topic to the students. This made it easier for them to understand why the
mentioned people became heroes of the country without hesitations because of the just and
precise explanation that the teacher made with the aid of the said resources.
3. Over-all, were the learning resources used effectively? Why? Why not? Give your
I can say that the learning resources were effectively used during their class session because of
the affirming participation of the students. I suggest that the teacher must not solely based on the
ICT resources. She should put variety on how the lecture must be presented so that the students
may practice their skills in the class.
Page 47
Put yourself in the place of the teacher. What would you do similarly and what would you
do differently if you would teach the same lesson to the group of students? Why?
I would like to improve and enhance the delivery of the topic by putting some energizer in the
middle of the discussion. I would say that being in a history class is boring at times especially
when the discussions are very continuously delivered. I would still use the same resources in
t=delivering the topic, but I will make it more interactive by hearing the questions and reactions of
the students. It is important to maintain a professional teacher-student relationship, so that the
learning will be effective.

Page 49

These resources are interrelated to each other as long as the discussion is concerned.
These were the things that helped the teacher present the topics properly which brought the
students closer to the story behind the Filipino heroes that were discussed. I can say that the
projector is a very great help in the discussion because this enabled the students a larger view of
the PowerPoint presentation. The speaker helped a lot in maintaining the focus of the students
because it clearly produced the sounds that made the students feel like they are in the scene of
the video that was presented to them.

1. What is the lesson about? What are the teachers objectives?
The lesson was about the properties of addition. The teacher wants to improve the arithmetic
skills of the students by letting them master the properties of addition which will enable them to
understand its concept. The teacher also wants the student to understand the concept of
multiplication through this topic.
2. Note the important concepts that the teacher is emphasizing.
The teacher wants to emphasize the concept of each of the properties of addition namely:
commutative, associative, identity and distributive property.
3. Note the skills that the teacher is developing in the learners.
The skills that the teacher wants to emphasize is the students precision and promptness of the
first basic arithmetic operation which is addition.

1. Describe your experience in surfing the internet for appropriate electronic resources for
the class? Did you find it easy or difficult?
I can say that I had a difficult time searching for the appropriate electronic resources because I
have to filter every detail to ensure it is an effective resource to be used. I have to search for
more sites offering me certain types of resource and compare it. This task is not easy because I
have to spend time looking at my laptop and search for more sites. It is a time-consuming task,
but for the name of passion and quality education, it is worthy.
2. How did you choose which electronic resources to include here? What did you consider?
I have chosen the resources based on how it convey the topic. I filtered it and comprehend if it
embodies accuracy, appropriateness, clarity, completeness, motivation and organization which
will help me attain the objective I have set with the respective topic.
3. Reflect on your technology skills. What skills do you already have and what skills would
you continue to work on to be better at utilizing electronic resources?
I can say that my technology skills is moderate in level. I know how to utilize the sites and
gadgets in the way I wished to use it. The only thing I must work on to improve my skill is my
ability to fix the gadget or find a solution whenever the site becomes irresponsive, so that I can
find more convenience in using it in teaching and lessen the possibility of disturbances in
between whenever I am using it.

Why did you pick this MOOC?

I chose this MOOC because I believe that after taking this course, I will be able to search
for my purpose of being a teacher. I know that people tend to lose sight of their passion in
the long run and I dont want that to happen to me. I could prevent this if I will take a
refreshment course that will enable me to rekindle the passion that pushed me to take
teaching as a profession.

1. How can MOOCs help you in your future career as a professional teacher and
as a lifelong learner?
The MOOCs can help me in my future career by keeping me updated with the things
to be discovered and revised in the future. The profession I aspire to enter never
stops evolving, so do I. If I want to be an effective professional, I must know the
things I should know in order for me to adapt whenever and wherever which gives
essence for my lifelong learning process.
2. What did you learn from the way the providers use technology to teach in the
I learned the true meaning of the saying if theres a will, theres a way. I found the
common denominator in the sites I visited as I search for the MOOCs required for this
activity. They all want to hand over education anywhere and anytime in the world.
Through technology, these providers helped and continues to help teachers to
improve as time goes by and as whenever they feel and needed to. I can really say
that technology was really a boon in making education available for all.
3. How will you prepare yourself for MOOCs, as a learner, and as a teacher who
may someday teach a MOOC?
I can prepare myself for MOOCs as a learner and as a teacher someday by keep on
pursuing for education in every way I could. I can also prepare by being emotionally
stable as I figure out my desire for learning. The MOOCs are always prepared, but it
is up to the student if he/she is willing and dedicated to learn. At the other side of the
coin, a teacher can also be prepared by knowing in himself/herself that he/she is
dedicated in teaching not just for a profession, but also for passion.
