Amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the Department of Education (DepEd) launched “DepEd Commons,” an online platform that can now be accessed by public school teachers to support remote learning.
And we list three reasons to start with why every student, teacher, and parent should check DepEd Commons. The three are not complicated so enjoy. See also the links at the bottom part of this post that will help you use DepEd Commons.
1) It’s accessible anytime, anywhere with any internet-connected device
DepEd provided alternative learning delivery platforms in lieu of class suspension, such as DepEd Commons. Since its inception last Wednesday, March 17, a total of 1 Million and counting teachers and learners have joined the said online platform, gaining support and praise from teachers as well as parents.
It allows students to continue with their lessons while staying at home by providing online review materials and other educational resources.
2) Parents and teachers can finally be on the same page on topical discussions
Every parent can also be a student. Quality education isn’t just about knowledge being transferred from book to brain. Education is a continuous unending process. Every parent needs to instill this discipline by modeling it to their children.
3) It’s like free Harvard education!
DepEd Commons breaks the barrier of what is available only for the rich kid enrolled in an international school making is accessible to anyone who is willing to learn. The advent of the internet made split-second information transfer possible. So the knowledge and information in this platform can be updated in real-time by the developers which makes it even more relevant to the learner.
Imagine a Harvard professor updating his research in real-time while doing a scientific experiment and he uploaded his data to the server, a student in Batanes can download and utilize the same information replicating the same experiment. How cool is that?
