K to 12 is an organizational and administrative operation to bring Philippine secondary education up to par with the rest of the world. It is the most comprehensive educational reform of secondary education in the Philippines in many decades. It is a necessary reform, but it is not sufficient to lift the quality of Philippine education to international standards, since it does not adequately address the major factors that determine the quality of education: teaching and learning.

Last October 14, 2015, the Communication Foundation for Asia held “The Challenges of K-12” workshop that aimed to lift the quality of teaching & learning in our schools. Attending the workshop were educators and school administrators from across the Philippines.

CFA Shows Calamba Teachers How To Do Powerpoint Animation

MS Powerpoint Lawa Elementary School

A team from CFA’s Sales Department gave educators and administrators of Lawa Elementary School, Calamba, Bulacan a Microsoft PowerPoint seminar on September 24, 2014. The CFA team was headed by Sales department head Sean Siy. The focus of the seminar was on creating animations in PowerPoint presentations.

“[The CFA team] taught us a lot about PowerPoint that we need in teaching and in making our instructional materials,” a participant said. Another participant said that she was able to follow the lessons easily. “The trainer was a true expert,” she said, “and he was patient in repeating the lesson when some teachers were not able to keep pace.”

Advance Powerpoint - Crossing Elementary School

June 21, some 25 teachers from Crossing Elementary School in Calamba City boosted their presentation skills when CFA’s Sean Herbert Siy came and talked about Advance Powerpoint. The teachers had basic knowledge of the program, but Siy raised the bar by demonstrating how to create hyperlinks and how to use animation in transition. Siy was assisted by Bernie Timbas and Ryan Flores, also of CFA’s Sales Department.

One of the teacher-participants said, “The facilitator explained every topic clearly with examples.” CFA will continue to conduct seminar-workshops that will make real its vision to empower the integral development of people through innovative learning processes.
