Science and technology have improved our life in many ways. Science together with technology plays a strong role in the industrialization as well as modernization of the world. Those are the main reasons why the Association of Science Educators in the Philippines (ASEP) continuously gives assistance and support to all the educators in our country. One of these proofs was the recently held 7th National Science Convention in Baguio City last April 29-May 1, 2013.Its theme was “Science and Technology Advancement: Enhancing Quality of Life of Educators throughout Intervention and Research”.
The said convention was attended by select school heads and key teachers from different parts of the country. The program was graced and supported by the honourable Secretary of Education, Bro. Armin A. Luistro. He commended the noble intentions of the organizers headed by the ASEP President, Dr. Fruit R. Godoy.He also expressed his sincere gratitude to them for showing continuous commitment and dedication to intensify the love and support of people to Science and Technology.
The organizers’ aim was further discussed by Bishop Efraim Perez, Secretary of Interfaith in Malacanang Palace. He also gave a talk about Leadership and Management with Integration of Moral Values Enhancement for Educators. This was followed by the discussion of Modern Strategies and Managing Change in Classroom Discussion by Dr. Enrico M.
Habijan, Chief, CMLT. Another day was made possible and fruitful with the workshop on Test Construction. In addition, another talk by Dr. Lolita M. Andrada and Dr. Beatriz G.
Torno had awakened the senses of the attendees. They gave new insights and techniques to improve the quality of education in our country. The last day of the program focused on two aspects. First was about the Conceptualization of Action Research and the other was about Personality Enhancement through Psych Movement and Physical Prospect.These two sessions honed the capabilities of the delegates in a deeper manner. The last part of the program was more inspiring as they all attended the holy mass led by Bishop Efraim Reyes.
Truly, the three-day workshop was fun and worthwhile. The new insights learned from this convention will be given to all the learners in order to have competent and transformed individuals in the present and in the years to come. This will prove that Science and technology can create a better world with its great contributions.
