The Department of Education (DepEd) said Monday it would launch an online platform for reporting errors in self-learning modules and video lessons after it drew flak over erroneous lessons noticed by netizens.
The Deped will provide parents, students, and concerned individuals with an email address, phone number, and a Facebook Messenger account for the reporting of errors in modules and other learning resources, Education Undersecretary Alain Pascua said Monday.
“We would like to announce that we are coming up within the day with an error-watch details kung saan pwede i-report ng mga netizens at mamamayan lalo na ng DepEd family, ang makikitang error not only in DepEd TV but also in our printed modules so we can immediately act on them,” he told reporters in a press briefing.
(We would like to announce that we are coming up within the day with an error-watch details where netizens and concerned individuals especially from the DepEd family can report errors not only in DepEd TV but also in our printed modules so we can immediately act on them.)
Last week, the DepEd drew criticism after it aired a wrong solution to a math problem on DepEd TV which was broadcasted in IBC-13. The education department apologized for the error.
“We have made corrections on that and we have already uploaded the right videos,” Pascua said.
Reported errors will be addressed by DepEd, Pascua noted as he assured the public that the agency will also inform the public if the errors are “fake news.”
“We will surely address all these reports. We are not content with seeing the reports in different social media platforms. We would rather have direct reports coming from citizens going to our offices so that we can act on them,” he said.
