For those of you guys in the Philippines, if you have nothing to do today or if you have a free schedule I recommend that you go and attend Blogger’s Kapihan 2.0: Blog Ed 101.
This is the second event organized by the Blogger’s Kapihan crew and this time the topics that will be tackled are the importance of blogging in learning, learning in blogging and blogging as a tool for alternative education. This event will be held on October 13, 2007, 1:30 pm (Manila time) at the Ramon Magsaysay High School in Quezon City. Blog Ed 101 is in cooperation with the Alliance of Concerned Teachers (ACT), a nationwide network of educators from different schools, colleges and universities.
Blog Ed 101 resource speakers:
- Sir Martin Perez, Social Studies teacher of the Philippine Science High School, will give introductory concepts and tips on blogging as a tool for instruction.
- Prof. Danny Arao, assistant professor of the Department of Journalism at the University of the Philippines College of Mass Communication, will tackle how blogging can be instrumental for alternative education and how websites can be transformed into ‘virtual classrooms’.
- Mr. Tonchi Tinio, chairperson of the Alliance of Concerned Teachers, will provide an overview on the advantages and disadvantages of the controversial CyberEducation Project of the Department of Education.
- Lalon dela Rosa, who’s currently taking up his Certificate for Teaching Program at the Philippine Normal University Graduate School and is planning to teach high school English after, will be the student-reactor of the event.
Btw, for those who would like to attend and need invites just leave a comment here. Unfortunately for me, I can’t attend this event since I’m not in the Philippines. Anyways, all the best to the resource speakers, emcees and organizers!
