The Phoenix Aralinks® learning revolution continues. With over 260 Aralinks® schools all over the country, technology integration is made alive through thousands of administrators, and faculty members.
In preparation for the school year 2018-2019, Phoenix Aralinks® continues to change the technology-assisted teaching and learning ecosystem through a series of faculty development programs. One teacher quipped: “The training seminar was immensely helpful. I not only managed to acquire numerous resources, but I understood how to create effective presentations.”
The Aralinks Readiness Assessment (ARA) ® and Aralinks Standards in Technology Integration (ASTIG)® personalizes the learning and training programs in the scholastic journey to 21st century education. Sessions on pedagogy and technology appropriation were further contextualized so that teachers can reach target competencies and extend learning.
Teams of EdTech Specialists and Integration Facilitators assisted faculty members from Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao in enriching knowledge of teaching strategies, and developing technical skills. Summer training sessions allowed school communities to collaborate among the different subject areas, and departments.
“The different materials presented, and the power of technology is transforming not only the students but also the teachers and the school, to offer quality and timely education for all.” shares another faculty member. Truly, it is pedagogy driving technology. At the heart of the Phoenix Aralinks® Programs is the dynamic and effective synthesis of pedagogy, technology, and learning spaces.
