Iloilo City National High School’s Maria Lilian Jem Montero, Joseph Andrean De La Cruz, Leonardo Rosal, Ralph Archie Agreda and Raf Jeanel Simonio won first runner-up in the recently concluded Concentrix NEXT MOVE Challenge last Nov. 15, 2021.

The annual innovation contest was sponsored by Concentrix, an IT solutions Industry which aims to empower the youth in innovative technology.

Twenty-six private and public schools from all over the country participated in the contest, and the selection process took two months to finish with De La Salle University-Manila, University of St. La Salle-Bacolod, University of Science & Technology of Southern Philippines, the Mandaluyong City Science High School, and Iloilo City National High School as finalists.

The students’ innovation entitled ““Automated Meter Reading Using Artificial Intelligence (AI) Technology” aimed to address problems regarding meter-reading inaccuracies experienced by consumers, as well as electrical distribution companies. Moreover, it also enables the consumer to track their electric consumption, thus the tagline: “SmartZip: A Portable way to monitor your pay.”

“We are so lucky to have been chosen as finalists and we promise to continue to inspire our fellow students to innovate and to always come up with solutions to our everyday problems. We thank everyone who have helped us in this journey, and this does not stop here. We are inspired and we will continue our mission,” says Ma. Lilian Jem Montero, their team leader.

Project Advisers were Rey J Gonzales, Joemarie Selibio, Francis Planto and Astrid Haresco, and were supported by the school’s PTA President, Jeff De La Cruz and Alpha A. Java, Principal IV.

Teachers’ Most Challenging Time

Teachers’ Most Challenging Time

MRS JEANE C. DEMOCRITO

     The four-year baccalaureate course and years of experience of teachers in school are two of the most salient factors to bring about an outstanding and excellent educator. While their day-to-day functions make them skillful communicators, writers, moderators, and compassionate disciplinarians; teachers are also well-equipped with the wisdom to be even more effective facilitators of learning. They can set clear and obtainable standards in acquiring knowledge, skills and values which learners should practice in everyday life.

     However, this time of pandemic places teachers’ roles at high-stakes. There is a sudden shift of teaching processes where teaching in front of the class and deliver the lessons is no longer doable. Pressure has become evident as learning takes a turn in its implementation. This, gives birth to a demand for teachers to sustain their teaching efficacy as they previously were. The assurance of the transfer of learning to take place amid the modifications in teaching and learning – from the learning delivery modality, lesson planning, teaching strategies, learning styles, and to the many forms of school activities has become more struggling.

     Blissfully, educators are continuously-driven by their goal to provide quality education for all despite the difficulties of this trying times of the pandemic. They rub elbows with colleagues, family members, community members, LGU’s and other academic institutions in order to set appropriate priorities in dealing with the needs that will affect learners’ progress in learning. Since a great number of stakeholders rely on these teachers for the continuity of learning, it is but of precedence that teachers need to maintain their well-being – to be physically fit and emotionally stable.

    Thus, teachers must carry on. They have to exhibit a strong personality – ready for the complexity of today’s learning.  They need to think out of the box to continue nourishing the learners and ensure a holistic transformation. Coordination, communication, and collaboration with education officials are indispensable actions in constructing a nurturing learning environment. Professional sharing of ideas and best practices of one another are selfless acts of lifting each other during this uncertain time. They must create a unified relationship with colleagues which will certainly amplify positive academic results.

     Things may not be easy. But, goal-driven teachers will exhaust their utmost capacity to beat the odds and achieve success without compromising quality. At the end, teachers might even be surprised at the intensity of how far they can go as significant sources of inspiration, motivation, and resiliency in keeping learners focused and appreciative to learning regardless of the situation.
