MAPUA University has begun offering Mapua HOME or Homeschool: Onboard to Modern-day Education, its home education program approved by the Department of Education (DepEd) that offers alternative and flexible secondary education (SHS).
Mapua HOME is offered for the sections of the academic itinerary of degree 11 STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), ABM (accounting, business and management), HUMSS (humanities and social sciences) and GAS (general academic section ).
The new orientation is part of the Mapua movement to advocate for unlimited online learning supported by powerful digital educational technology tools for young students to deviate from time, distance and even circumstances that hinder learning. continuous.
The program will encourage students to engage in independent learning, creativity, and discovery while using the University’s cutting-edge educational solutions, its information and communications technology systems, and other available means.
Students will have access to Mapua E-text Infinity Solution (Metis), a business solution of different ebooks and digital solutions from Wiley, Cengage and McGraw Hill; the virtual laboratory simulations of Biology, Chemistry and Physics; and Matlab, a numerical programming and computing platform used to analyze data, develop algorithms, and create models.
Students will also use Grammarly and Turnitin to develop their writing skills and reinforce appropriate revision habits.
They will also use Mapua’s online database collection, digital documents, audio, video and other institutional resources in digital format.
Mapua HOME learning materials are aligned with Mapua SHS curricula. It will involve students with the help of licensed teachers and course specialists who will guide them to acquire the skills needed for their chosen lines.
Teachers as student facilitators will conduct assessments. They are presented in the form of (1) tests consisting of “check your comprehension” questions and practice problems to help students master their lessons; (2) essays or writing activities for students to reflect on and increase the value of their recognition of their learning and how they will apply it in real life situations; (3) long tests or domain tests that cover the learning of the tests and activities performed in the learning module; (4) performance tasks such as activities, results, and portfolios to be assigned at the end of the course module; (5) exit projects such as research papers; and (6) an 80-hour work immersion for hands-on experience, which is aligned with your preferred higher education program.
Instructions will be given through Cardinal EDGE, Mapua’s online learning platform.
Pre-recorded lectures and modules will be provided to students. For all activities and outcomes, the subject advisor will provide verbal or written feedback to students as well as parents to monitor their children’s learning progress.
The weekly consultation schedule will be done via Zoom, Microsoft Teams and email.
Apart from this form of online education, which is an electronically supported form of learning delivery that is highly dependent on the Internet for teacher-student interactions and for class participation, l Home education implements an asynchronous study by students in combination with a form of teaching in a single facilitator-to-student.
This makes Mapua HOME a different and more coordinated learning strategy for Mapua Senior High School. Its discipline fosters independence by providing opportunities for students to reflect on the achievement of student outcomes through asynchronous learning mode and encourages flexibility in distance learning by strengthening appropriate learning strategies.
