Blended Learning by DepEd in all School Nationwide until November
DepEd secretary and concurrent Vice President Sara Duterte stated on friday that Department of Education is researching the use of blended learning as a permanent mode of instruction.
During the organizational meeting of the Senate Committee on Basic Education, Duterte reiterated that the Department of Education is ready for the start of classes in accordance with Department Order 24, which provides for the calendar and activities for School Year 2022-2023, despite the challenges they face.
According to the report of GMA, she claimed that an executive committee was assigned to ensure a smooth start to the in-person classes. Sara Duterte stated that the Education Department is still conducting a study on the adoption of blended learning, despite their confidence in the educators, superintendents of school divisions, and regional directors to put forth their best efforts to allow for the safe return of students to their places of study.
“Consequently, as part of the transition to in-person classes, blended learning shall still be implemented and we are continuing to study the implementation of blended learning as a permanent mode of instruction for basic education,” VP. Sara said.
In all public and private schools, according to Duterte, five days of in-person instruction will be fully implemented on November 2. The report mentioned that the Vice President added that DepEd is making every effort to address “long-standing issues,” such as the lack of classrooms and teachers and the effects of natural disasters like recent earthquakes and typhoons on the educational system.
The Vice President also assured parents that we will increase our efforts to give kids the education they deserve as they take part in the Transforming Education Summit 2022 at the United Nations, where President Marcos and leaders day are likely to be present.
