Mega Cebu, a collaboration of stakeholders in government, non-government organizations (NGOs) and private sectors, which aims to plan Cebu’s future, organized a Teachers’ Competition on Flash Cards Development integrating its attributes plus the UNESCO’s Four Pillars of Education like “Learning to Know”; “Learning to Do”; “Learning to Be”; and “Learning to Live Together”.
These Flashcards will be used to all basic education students in Cebu to foster among them the appreciation of the city’s economy, national heritage, historical features, responsive governance and active citizenship.
Furthermore, the said Flashcards are anchored on the standards and competencies of the K-12 curriculum.
The said Teacher’s Competition was set last September this year at the RAFI Hall.
Among the judges of the said esteemed competition was USJR’s Department of Teacher Education Chairman Jestoni P. Babia, who also acted as the chairman of the board of panellists.
Moreover, the competition selected the best Flash Cards highlighting Problem-Based Learning (PBL) approach in the classroom.
In an interview with Professor Babia, he states, “It is empowering to envision Mega Cebu as the liveliest and fastest growing economy as reflected in the provision of quality basic education that elucidates the latter’s contribution to economic development”.
The teacher’s competition was in close coordination with the Coalition for Better Education, an independent Non-Government Organization concerned with teacher trainings, research, leadership and community extensions.
