Cordillera – To continue teaching their pupils in the new normal, teachers from this little town of Abra had came up with this innovative idea of using walkie talkie two-way radio as a means to teach their students since internet is not accessible in the area.
Teachers from Danac Elementary School opted to use walkie talkie to be able to assist pupils and parents in learning and answering their Self Learning Modules, according to DepEd Tayo Abra.
Each grade level is allotted an hour of On Air Class Discussion from Monday to Friday.
In a video posted by DepEd Tayo Abra, a teacher is using hand-held two-way radio to relay instructions to the parents and kids on how to answer their modules.
Parents and kids on the other end carefully listen to the teacher’s instruction via walkie-talkie.
Meanwhile, a grade 6 teacher from Ifugao went extra mile just to help one of her student whose living in the mountain learn from his module.
Teacher Helen Omela of Ayangan Elementary School in Mayoyao, Ifugao even followed her student when he went to their ‘kaingin’ to guard their rice plant against Maya birds.
The kids together with their parents were pleased with the concerns and love shown by the teacher Omela.
