MOODLE TRAINING FOR FACULTY
The COVID19 pandemic has resulted in serious consequences in education globally. Both public and private schools are intensively planning and developing solutions with regards to the new learning platforms and models. This present situation has conceivably pushed schools to shift from traditional to distance learning and devise their own learning management system.
As a pursuit to redefine education, Bacolod Tay Tung High School teachers successfully completed the three-day hands-on training on Moodle: Learning Management System (June 9-11, 2020) at BTTHS Digital Learning Hub. The School Principal, Engr Philip Carpina, together with Cluster trainers, led and trained teachers on how to use Moodle and its user interface.
Cluster 1: Francis Espera, Charmie So and Ershey Cadagat
Cluster 2: Herjean Pagdato, Norjie Cabanero, Angela Kliatchko and Jessica Delos Santos
Cluster 3: Eljhone Mark Esquilla, Pearl Marie Oh, and Gelkoff Calmerin.
Cluster 4: Annariza Batiancila, Roland Leonillo, MAEd.
Cluster 5: Sherille Dequina, and Anjo Sabete
Each day, teachers were asked to perform and submit their given tasks and assignments such as updating profiles, creating courses, enrolling participants, making quizzes, setting an online conference using Big Blue Button, and other Moodle Features. Moodle is a learning platform designed to provide educators, administrators, and learners with a secure and integrated learning system, as well as, to foster interaction, inquiry, and collaboration among learners, teachers, and parents. School’s learning management system is not only a tool for learning resources but a place where students learn and engage.
Tay Tung has constantly checked on some viewpoints for newer tools and trends, that will help mold the school’s dynamic learning environment, both inside and outside the classroom. Thus, we are always gearing up for the new normal anchored with educational technologies. (Shefhannie Cabanus and Roland Leonillo)
