DepEd CALABARZON launches ICBER, draws over 2000 researchers

After successfully conducting the Philippine Conference of Basic Education Researchers last year, the Department of Education Region IV-A CALABARZON paved way to a bigger research field by expanding their borders in the international level through the 2017 International Conference of Basic Education Researcher.

With 2,285 participants coming from different regions of the Philippines and several plenary speakers from different parts of the globe, researchers gathered at the Philippine International Convention Center last December 4 to 6 to learn and discover innovations in strengthening the foundations for lifelong learning and productive global citizenship.

During her keynote message in the opening ceremony, DepEd Secretary Leonor Briones emphasized the importance of lifelong learning as the world is constantly changing every day. She cited that the world may have doctors and engineers, computers and robots but it is also about nurturing the country’s soul.

“Looking at lifelong learning is not just about picking things here and there as you go along life but it’s [also about fostering] the value of peace, democracy, tolerance, cultural understanding, and general care for everything,” the Secretary exclaimed.

She then aligned this with developing Filipinos’ love for their country and the world by starting in the early ages, explaining that the department is planning to coordinate with the Commission on Human Rights to integrate Global Citizenship in the basic education curriculum.

The conference further aimed to provide a network for education researchers to tackle various issues, challenges, and trends affecting the K to 12 Basic Education in the world; advocate information literacy through research as a framework for fostering lifelong learning and global citizenship; share best practices and innovations in improving the quality of teaching and learning; enhance understanding of the diverse views on Global Citizenship Education and its implications for educational content, pedagogy and practices; and increase collaboration and expand partnership to pursue an education for sustainable development and education for international understanding.

Over the course of the 3-day event, plenary speakers expanded a couple of these themes to give the participants a different perspective on the subject matter.

Professor John Pegg of Australia’s University of New England and Foundation Director of the SiMERR National Research Centre – School of Education discussed about Innovative Approaches in Heightening Cognitive Development and explored the notion of multitasking. Associate Dean Lynnette B. Erickson of the McKay School of Education, Brigham Young University tackled Nurturing Pre-Service and In-Service Teachers for Effective Citizenship Education.

“Schools are not just places where we go to hang-out. We don’t just go there to learn stuff. We go there to learn the lessons we need in life. Schools are mini-places where teachers can help their students learn culture, love, respect, history, politics, kindness. . .  and on and on, all those virtues of being a good citizen,” Erickson explained.

On the another hand, Dr. Brajesh Panth, Technical Advisor at the Asian Development Bank explained the Principles and Practices in Developing and Implementing K-12 Reforms. Whereas Dr. Nicholas Sun-Keung Pang, Professor and Chairman of the Department of Educational Administration and Policy and The Chinese University of Hong Kong, explored Strategic Thinking Skills for School Leaders.

“Whether [strategic leadership] is an art or science, I think it is a combination of both. Learning is a science but when you use it, it is an art. A leader should have the ability and wisdom to make consequent decisions about the ends of the success of the world. A leader should learn from life and be able to face real and difficult problems,” Pang expounded.

Lastly, Dr. Lorna Dig-Dino Undersecretary for Curriculum and Instruction detailed DepEd’s Assessment Policies and Initiatives that Engage 21st  Century Learners, stressing that teachers must also have 21st century skills to be able to develop a new generation of creative, critical thinking, and nation loving citizens.

Meanwhile, simultaneous breakout sessions were also conducted during the second day of the event where oral presenters discussed their researches which revolved around the following theme: Teaching and Learning; Child Protection; Human Resource Development; Governance/School Administration/Leadership/Management; Disaster Risk Reduction Management; Inclusive Education; and Gender and Development.

Poster presentations that also discussed the mentioned themes were  displayed at PICC’s Forum 2 where participants and guests were able to view and gather insights. Researchers were also present to answer queries from interested participants.
