Save the Children Philippines is supporting the Department of Education (DepEd) to use adaptive learning methods to ensure continuity of education, and protection of learners from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Atty. Alberto Muyot, Chief Executive Officer of Save the Children Philippines calls for the public’s support, especially the education sector, to the training of teachers and non-teaching personnel to handle new learning methods for the smooth implementation of DepEd’s adaptive systems, and address the emerging needs of learners including low numeracy and literacy skills as cited by the 2018 results of the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA).
“As a non-negotiable basic human right, children should have continued access to education, even in times of emergencies such as the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Muyot.
“But we must always remember that children’s safety is paramount and make sure that they have a safe and inclusive learning environment,” added Muyot.
