DepEd CALABARZON hosts 2016 PCBER

DepEd CALABARZON hosts 2016 PCBER

The Philippine Conference of Basic Education Researchers (PCBER) gathered more than a thousand education researchers from all over the country at the Philippine International Convention Center in Manila last December 5 to 7.

With the theme “Building a Powerhouse of Educational Leaders as Learners”, the 2016 PCBER was hosted by the Department of Education CALABARZON through the leadership of Regional Director Dr. Diosdado San Antonio. The conference aimed to intensify the promotion of the culture of research in the education field and deepen productive partnerships among DepEd development partners and other education/ research institutions.

“We have opted to hold the Philippine Conference of Basic Education Researchers to once again celebrate our success in making every basic educator a knowledge generator,” said San Antonio.

Meanwhile, Undersecretary for Planning Service and Field Operations Jesus Lorenzo Mateo explained that the program’s  theme is ‘a reminder to build a powerhouse roster of leadership as leadership is tremendous to all levels of governance up to the school level’.

“What we learn from this conference should make an impact to our learners, reflect on what we learn and use it to be better.  By three methods we may learn wisdom- reflection which is the noblest; imitation which is the easiest and experience which is the best,” Mateo explained.

Keynote speaker Dr. John Pegg, Director of the National Centre of Science, ICT, and Mathematics Education for Regional and Rural (SiMMER) University of New England, Australia likened how the brain learns to a person becoming successful.

 “If we start thinking about instruction through the constructs of learning brain by connecting the importance of effort, the realities of working memory, and the value of automaticity of basic skills, while understanding that multi-tasking and task-switching can lessen the ability to concentrate, we can learn that the features of neural functioning such as the critical role errors play and expect genuine improvements in student learning,” Pegg explained.

Other plenary speakers on the first day included Director of Philippine National Research Center for Teacher Quality Dr.  Gina O. Gonong who shared about “The Philippine Professional Standard for Teachers:  Research Activities and Opportunities”; Director for Planning Service Roger B. Masapol discussed on “Teaching Evidence-Based Practice in K to 12 Education”; and  SEAMEO INNOTECH Centre Director Dr. Ramon C. Bacani shared his expertise on “Innovative Solutions to Emerging Issues in Basic Education.”

On the second day, 252 oral presentations were conducted in twelve session rooms and 343 posters were displayed in the gallery.

The culminating day featured Undersecretary for Curriculum and Instruction Dr. Dina S. Ocampo as one of the plenary speakers who discussed the Challenges for Researchers on Curriculum and Instruction.

“Transformation to transformation of others … transform your learners… your research knowledge should be in favor of children” Ocampo emphasized.

Ocampo also added that the steps to empowerment are to inform, consult, involve, collaborate and empower others.

The last plenary speaker to share was Dr. Milwida M. Guevara, CEO, Officer of the Synergeia Foundation, she discussed Catalyzing and Enabling Communities to Collaborate for Children’s Holistic Development.

The event was a huge success based on the overwhelming response of registered participants who were inspired to further innovate and conduct researches that would be beneficial to schoolchildren throughout the country.

“It was an inspiring Wednesday for we were wrapped by women with positive influence to transform our minds into something beneficial that will address the needs of our schoolchildren,” said Dr. Jackie Lou Alulod-Almira, EPS-QAD.
