DOST-SEI and Smart Bring DOST Courseware to Remote Schools


Wazzup Pilipinas!
 
Filipino students in remote areas will soon have access to the DOST Courseware – an interactive science and math resource conceptualized and produced by the Department of Science and Technology – Science Education Institute (DOST-SEI).

Thanks to a recent partnership between DOST-SEI and Smart Communications, students in the most far-flung schools in the country will be able to use the DOST Courseware app. The app will come preinstalled in the tablets included in every Smart School-in-a-Bag package and will be given to students and teachers from 32 schools in Tawi-Tawi, Davao, Cagayan, Benguet, La Union, Nueva Vizcaya, Quirino, Capiz, Iloilo, Cebu, Lanao del Sur, Lanao del Norte, and Maguindanao.

DOST-SEI provided sets of the courseware to Smart during the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) signing held on August 1, 2018 at the DOST-SEI office in Taguig City. The sets include Modules in Science and Mathematics for Elementary Schools, Grades 1-6 Mathematics, and Grades 7 and 8 Science and Mathematics.

While the app is primarily designed for use of students, teachers will find the K to 12-aligned resource valuable in enhancing their teaching of science and mathematics.

DOST-SEI Director Josette Biyo encouraged teachers and students to take advantage of the DOST Courseware. “The DOST Courseware is engaging, educational, and designed with Filipinos in mind. The characters, stories, and activities are relatable to Filipino students,” she said.

The DOST Courseware is a project of the DOST-SEI in partnership with DOST-Advance Science and Technology Institute and in cooperation with the Department of Education, Philippine Normal University and UP National Institute for Science and Mathematics Education.

Schools may request free copies of the DOST Courseware. The app is also available for free download on Google Play with versions compatible for Android and Windows users. For copies, research inquiries, and other concerns, interested parties may email arisedost@gmail.com.(30)
