EBM and DepEd Capiz Division Empower Teachers on Inclusive Education

EBM and DepEd Capiz Division Empower Teachers on Inclusive Education

Fifty public elementary school teachers assigned to classes with differently-abled children in the DepEd - Capiz Division, participated in a seminar–workshop entitled “Rediscover the Passion for Teaching: the Inclusive Way,” held in the multi-purpose hall of the Division last May 26-27, 2017. The seminar–workshop was sponsored by Empowering Brilliant Minds Foundation as part of its commitment to improve the quality of education in the public schools through teacher training. The facilitators were Mrs. Edith Penano, an experienced Guidance Counselor and Mrs. Melinda “Mel” Azurin, an expert in Creative Arts for Children. Both have retired from their respective professions but have retained the passion to get involved in undertakings that build capabilities of teachers and learners. Mrs. Penano gave a very engaging review of the different developmental theories of Dewey, Pavlov, Skinner, Bandura, Erikson, Piaget, Vygotsky and Montessori, to the delight of the teachers. Such theories were then expressed through the Creative Arts activities prepared by Teacher Mel. From the two-day Seminar-Workshop, the participants gained a deeper appreciation of the role of Inclusive Education in shaping the future of differently-abled children. They learned techniques and strategies on how to detect and handle children with special needs. Further, the use of Arts and Play activities provided more enlightenment on understanding the world of the child. Empowering Brilliant Minds Foundation, represented by its Executive Director Ms. Rosalinda Basas and her Assistant Ms. AyrishTuazon, is grateful for the continued support of DepEd Superintendent Miguel Mac Aposin, Ph.D and Ruth Gervero, Ph.D., Education Program Supervisor – SPED and ALS.
