The Elementary Unit follows the K to 12 Curriculum prescribed by the Department of Education. In response to the recommendation of the IATF and in compliance with the mandate of the Department of Education, the Elementary Unit offers a new learning set up that aims to address the basic education of its learners.
This modification on the Academic program still concretizes the school’s philosophy and objectives through the different area contents, approaches, methodologies and the values used and integrated in all subject areas.
The unit adapts the DISTANCE/BLENDED LEARNING APPROACH. Blended learning is an approach to planning and organizing teaching for student learning that offers an alternative to the traditional lecture/tutorial model of delivery. Blended learning is defined by Bluic et al. (2007) as a three-way interaction: Blended learning describes learning activities that involve a systematic combination of co-present (face-to-face) interactions and technologically-mediated interactions between students, teachers and learning resources.
