Books More Effective Than Modules Amid Shift To Distance Learning

BOOKS MORE EFFECTIVE THAN MODULES – Due to the coronavirus pandemic, students and teachers shifted to distance learning.

Those who are privileged to have good data signals or internet in their homes could opt to do online learning. However, those who don’t are required to use learning modules.

Unfortunately, this comes at a higher cost according to the Teachers Dignity Coalition. As the Department Of Education (DepEd) officially announced the start of classes, several issues came to light regarding the modules.

Previously, a group of teachers reported that there was a severe lack of budget for module printing. As such, some teachers were forced to pay for the modules with their own money.

Meanwhile, Benjo Basas, national chairperson of Teachers Dignity Coalition added:

Yung libro po is more effective than the use of modules. Ang basis ng modules ay libro din. Pwedeng maglagay ng activity sheet o guide sa ating mga libro“.

He added that DepEd could’ve used books instead of modules. However, he questioned why DepEd Secretary Leonor Briones would push for modules that are costly and put trees at risk.

Earlier, DepEd Undersecretary Diosdado San Antonio explained that learning modules are more appropriate for distance learning compared to textbooks. He added that books require more effort than modules in the distance learning scheme.

Kung book po mas may dagdag na effort silang gagawin eh distance learning nga at nasa panahon ng pandemya ang gusto natin ay mabigay din sa mga bata ‘yung pinakaangkop na learning resource hanggat kaya natin
