I.T. Time with Acer Philippines

A “Teatime with Ace David” Spin-off

HE DOESN’T WANT to be called “the man.” Although as far as his company is concerned, in various senses, he definitely is.

Mr. Manuel Wong, the General Manager of Acer Philippines, once graced with his presence Mr. Ace David’s AM radio program “You’re the Man!.” For these two “aces” or first-rate individuals in their respective turfs, the dialogue which transpired on September “the first” of 2012 was nothing less than historical, if not necessarily providential. The interview sparked off a sequence of fruitful “collaborations” between the institutions the two gentlemen respectively represent.

The K -12 Education System: Benefits for the Filipinos

Last school year 2012-2013, the educational system of the Philippines was enhanced from the 10-years basic education into 12-years through the program called the K-12 Education Plan of the Department of Education.

Accordingly, the implementation of the K-12 education plan in the Philippine Basic Education Curriculum is the key to our nation’s development.  The government may be facing many problems in the implementation of the program yet it is important that we implement it because the enhancement of the quality of education is very urgent and critical.

It is not difficult to understand why, despite the additional costs the program would entail, the public generally appears to take the President’s K -12 basic education program sitting down.  In 2010, Mr. Isagani Cruz wrote in one of his columns in a local newspaper some good reasons not to disagree with K-12 education plan in the Philippines.

"Politics" in Instructional Supervision

The word “politics” attaches to it the word “leadership.”  In Philippine Education, supervisors exclaim exasperation at changes every time there is a change of Secretary Education.  Teachers have no choice but to adopt the changes.  This is reflective of Philippine history that showed a change of leaders as the country went through Spanish colonizers and  American rule.  When the Americans took over from the Spaniards, the educational system was poorly structured because of the archipelagic nature of a thousand islands.
