TAGAYTAY CITY, Cavite (PIA) — The Department of Education (DepEd) Region IV-A underscored the importance of observing copyright laws in producing learning resources as it launched the Calabarzon Learning Resource Expo (LRE) last November 23 to 24.
Public school librarians and Curriculum Implementation DIvision chiefs of the DepEd Region IV-A kicked off the two-day Workshop on the Quality Assurance of SDO Contextualized Learning Resources Used for Learning Recovery as part of the DepEd’s bid to upgrade the Learning Resources that will fit the needs and culture of students.
Learning resources are devices and materials produced that help to make teaching and learning more interesting and effective.
The 23 Schools Division Offices (SDOs) in Calabarzon presented their Contextualized Learning Resources that highlighted their best practices in adapting blended modalities in delivering quality education to students at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Curriculum and Learning Materials Division (CLMD) chief, Job Zape said that as highlight of the Learning Resources Expo, the Workshop on the Quality Assurance of SDO Contextualized Learning Resources Used for Learning Recovery Plan will help the regional education office and its Schools Division Offices in upgrading their learning resources, particularly in numeracy and literacy.
“We hope to upgrade learning resources to strengthen numeracy and literacy, upskill teachers and parents, and advance skill building of teachers and parents across learning areas,” Zape said.
While Schools Division Offices can make their own Contextualized Learning Resources, Atty. Rolando Bernalez reminded that learning materials are also encompassed in the Intellectual Property Rights Law.
“The worst that can happen to us is to lose our credibility as teachers, as writers, and as professionals.” Bernalez warns. (PB/PIA4A)
