The Department of Education (DepEd) is preparing for a dry-run of its blended learning approach to ensure efficiency before classes open on August 24.
The dry-run will be implemented in the first week of August to determine schools’ readiness, said DepEd Secretary Leonor Briones during an online press conference. Different learning modalities will be used to cater to learners’ various needs and capacities.
Briones noted that from June 29 to July 3, some schools have actually already started their pilot simulation of blended learning, such as the Bagumbayan Elementary School, Dagat-dagatan Elementary School, and Navotas National High School. Teachers from the said schools noted such materials under the blended learning dry-run such as learning activity packets and home-based learning guides for parents.
All schools will be doing activities to test blended learning from July 20 to 31, before the official dry-run in August.
Said DepEd, “Process observers and documenters are assigned to note details including the distribution and retrieval of learning resources to and from the learners. Identified areas of concern shall be the focus of improvement for the remaining schools.”
DepEd also confirmed that thematic modules under the “Project Write Write” of its Schools Division Office (SDO) would be developed and printed using the budget from the Special Education Fund (SEF) and Maintenance and Other Operating Expenses (MOOE) of schools.
