Improving the

quality of
education for
K-12 students
Co, Fernandez, Gellor, Que, Santos
Background
The K-12 basic education program, which was implemented in the year 2012,
sought out to “provide sufficient time for mastery of concepts and skills, develop
lifelong learners, and prepare graduates for tertiary education, middle-level skills
development, employment, and entrepreneurship”.

Furthermore, K-12 aims to ease the progression from High-School to College by


introducing courses such as Biology and Calculus. These courses are often taken for
the first time in College; and as such, exposing High-School students to these
subjects prepares them better for College.

2
However, in one way or another, K-12
has fallen short of its goals, leading to
some to question its implementation

This presentation aims to


propose courses of action to
improve the quality education
of K-12 students

3
Proposed solutions:
1. Multiple Intelligence Alternative Class Learning
System
2. Incorporating digital literacy
3. Reconfiguring the school day
4. Collaborating with the business sector
5. Implementation of book drives to
improve language proficiency 4
1. Implementation of
Multiple Intelligence
Alternative Class
Learning System
(MIACLES)
“ What is the MIACLES?
Once every sem, students
would get to enlist for
specialized classes that would
help develop their different
multiple intelligences.

6
“ What is the MIACLES?
Guest speakers would be
professionals from different
fields and career paths who
exemplified their multiple
intelligences. They would be
invited to speak about how
their intelligence helped them
succeed in the workplace
7
Cons
● It would give teachers and the administration
additional workload.
● It would extra expenses for the school.

8
Pros
● This would allow students to
receive a more authentic and
effective education (Herndon,
2018).
● Students would also be given
the opportunity to work on their
natural strengths. (Gray, 2013)
● This would allow students to
learn skills that can be applied
in practical life (Hohn. n.d.)
9
Pros
● This would help the students
dream, plan, and prepare for
their futures

10
Implementation
● Students would take a test to
determine what their multiple
intelligence
● The speakers would come
from the schools alumni
association
● 2 MIACLES per intelligence

11
Implementation
MIACLES program flow
● Introduction of the Guest speaker
by assigned teacher (5 minutes)
● Guest speaker’s lecture (50
minutes)
● Question and answer portion (20
minutes)
● Activity conducted by the guest
speaker. (40 minutes).
● Awarding of honorarium,
certificates, and token. (5 minutes)

12
Implementation
The Lecture and output activity would be different for every class
depending on the type of intelligence they would teach.

13
2. Incorporating
digital literacy
Digital
Literacy
“The ability to use information and
communication technologies to find, evaluate,
create, and communicate information, requiring
both cognitive and technical skills.”
- American Library Association

15
Learning in the
21st century
With technology being essentially a requirement
in everyday life, it is important that the youth
from the ground up are digitally literate for
them to have knowledge on how to use
important technologies effectively and
responsibly.
16
Benefits in:

Everyday Education Modern


Life Workspace

3. Reconfiguring
the school day
“ Goal:
To allow more time and space
to be given to teachers in order
for them to work more
effectively and to improve the
quality of education received by
their students.

22
Teaching and
quality learning
● Both are intrinsically linked (i.e.
They work hand-in-hand with
each other)
● The way the teacher teaches is a
big factor on the quality of
education his or her students will
receive
23
Changes in time
● The duration of class periods should be adjusted
more based on pedagogical grounds, but should
have a few breaks in between
● Some subjects should be given a more preferential
time because of its heavier cognitive
demand
- Heavy subjects earlier in the day
- Lighter subjects later in the day

24
Changes in space
● Teachers should be given the opportunity to
modify some classroom settings if deemed fit for
the lecture, such as:
○ physical construction
○ student arrangement
○ outdoor learning sessions
○ group dynamics
○ what type of equipment
the teacher uses
25
Implementation
presented to a panel or board of directors of a
particular senior high school,

Present a thesis/dissertation/research paper which will also


be supervised by a professor/academic scholar

undergo a process of
deliberation and critique after being proposed

26
4. Collaborating with
the business sector
Problem
It is difficult for under-resourced schools to
provide quality education for K-12 students

28
Additional expenses could go over
100,000 pesos One in ten Filipinos aged
6-24 are not in school

29
Creating shared value

Filling unmet educational needs, improving student outcomes, and


overcoming workforce constraints in ways that bring economic benefits back
to the company
30
● Instead of waiting at the end of
the so-called “educational
pipeline” for graduates with the
right skills, these companies
become part of the pipeline
themselves
● Goes beyond the concept of
“corporate social responsibility”

31
● Indian-based real estate, consumer
goods, appliances, and agricultural
products company
● 30 percent of India’s labor force
(composed of Indians aged 15-24), are
three times more likely to be
unemployed because they lack
marketable skills
● Created training programs for the youth
with skills relevant to the Goodrej
Group’s industry
● Provided thousands of rural youth with
basic education on English,
Mathematics, Work Ethics, and other
basic skills

RESULT: two-thirds of graduates have


found placement in consumer goods and
agriculture-related subsidiaries and
distributors 32
● Partnered with schools to deliver courses, career
coaching, and customized degrees for prospective
employees

RESULT: reducing the company’s previous issue of high


employee turnover, as their employees are now more likely to
stay and receive promotions

Intel Math and Intel Teach, instructional


materials, online resources, and professional
development tools for educators have been
created to enhance the quality education for
STEM students

RESULT: create a more competent batch of


graduates while also garnering more competent pool
of employees
33
Implementation
Present the idea to the administration, and get the
organization accredited

Recruitment and information dissemination

Finding under-resourced schools in Manila, and finding


companies that are willing to create shared value

34
5. Book drives to
improve language
proficiency
Problem
Compared to its fellow ASEAN members, the
Philippines scored a four out of ten for English
Proficiency. While that is not a welcoming sign,
the Philippines also appears to be stagnating,
while all of its neighbors continue to improve

36
3 main parts:

Collection Collation Distribution

37
Little project,
big impact
While a book drive has been done
many times before, it is a solution that
works and is simple enough to do
repeatedly, and as such could be
expanded when needed. It could be
conducted by different groups
simultaneously to help many schools
at once, and it could also distribute
Filipino story books to improve Filipino
literacy in the provinces where Filipino
is not the local language.
