10 Ways to Make Learning Interesting through Technology

THE FOLLOWING are 10 specific ways by which a teacher, through the use of technology, can make the learning environment active, student-centered, and collaborative:
1) By using video presentations via DVD technology, projector, etc., students could find learning entertaining ...
2) Putting lectures on academic blogsites (e.g. enables students to learn anytime and anywhere and allows learners to receive instruction despite geographic and time disparities. It therefore gives ease to students who become sick or with physical disabilities, have jobs during normal school hours, and those who lived in remote regions far from the school ...


Technology as a Catalyst for Educational Change

 “Technology is not a panacea for educational reform, but it can be a significant catalyst for change. To those looking for a powerful tool to support collaborative learning environments, technology holds tremendous potential.” In what ways can technology help teachers to promote more active, student-centered instruction? Or a collaborative learning environment?
AS THEY ALLOW STUDENTS to learn through written text, sound, graphics, animation, video, and other means, technological innovations have indeed contributed a lot in the improvement of the methods and effectiveness of teaching. The revolution in computer and communications technology, which brought about wonderful applications and progenies, have undeniably produced great effects on educational practice.
          Through the employment of technological tools, teachers can make the teaching and learning environment more active, student-centered, and collaborative ...

Beginners encounter difficulty in programming, especially when solving mathematical problems. The basic concepts in programming is the used of control structures. Programmers must learn the three control structures used in programming. These three basic structures are for  loop, while loop, and do while which can be used to develop any kind of program.




1. IT ENABLES THE STUDENTS to learn anytime and anywhere. It allows them to receive instruction or have access to lectures despite geographic and time disparities.
2. It provides learners the ability to ‘pause and rewind’ and the advantage of moving at their own pace. If they need to read or listen to a lecture a second time (as in the case of video-recorded lecture), or think about a question for awhile, they may do so without fearing that they will hold back the rest of the class.


Science & Ethics compared: Are There Proofs in Ethics too?

BECAUSE SCIENCE IS, or is supposedly, empirical or verifiable, it seems to provide our paradigm of objectivity. And in comparing ethics to science, “ethics seems to lack the features that make science so compelling” (James Rachels,The Elements of Moral Philosophy: 1999).

          In fact, many assert that there are no proofs in ethics. While we can prove that the world is round and that two plus two equals five, we cannot, they say, prove that abortion is right or wrong. So the “No-Proof Argument” as outlined by Rachels goes like this:


Their ‘sacred’ cow!

COW IS THE ANIMAL that has something to do with the death of the mother of the well-loved American president Abraham Lincoln.

No, Mrs. Nancy Hanks Lincoln was not attacked, let alone devoured, by any of these domesticated herbivorous mammals that constitute the genus Bos, of the family Bovidae.


The frogs called humans

TOPICS DISCUSSED: Anatomy; Animal Communication; Animal Behavior

IN THE PHILIPPINES AT LEAST, seldom would you find a college graduate who in his school days did not experience to dissect a frog in biology laboratory. Being cheap and relatively easier to find, frogs are usually used to teach students about the anatomy and physiology of vertebrates, or animals that have a backbone. Vertebrates as we are, we humans have anatomical and physiological features that basically resemble that of the frog.


Faith vs. science


Editor’s note: This article by a Philosophy professor discusses the mistakes in rejecting faith in the name of science and argues that morality is outside the realm of science. Readers are welcome to leave comments. (You, too, can have your articles published here. Send them through e-mail to

SOME SCIENCE ADVOCATES openly contend that science and religion are locked into a battle to the death. Believing that religion will sooner or later be certainly defeated, some assume that science is necessarily doing service to atheism ...



Is science the only valid road to knowledge?

Editor’s note: Scientism as an epistemological approach is debunked in this article. Materialists and naturalists are also welcome to comment on this.

‘MYSTICALLY’ SPEAKING, RICHARD DAWKINS, the famed author of popular science books such as the controversial The God Delusion (2006), has an unquestioning allegiance to his own ‘god’ – science. Like many other naturalists, Dawkins sees science as having the power to untangle most, if not all, the mysteries of the universe without the need of the supernatural and thus believes that ultimately science can triumphantly address almost every problem.


Is the theory of Evolution authentically scientific? (III)

“DARWINISM IS WOEFULLY LACKING FACTUAL SUPPORT and is rather based on philosophical assumptions.”

According to American chemist and Nobel laureate Robert Woodward, respected professors at prestigious secular universities are rising up and arguing this, together with the point that “empirical evidence, especially in molecular biology, now points compellingly to some sort of creative intelligence behind life ...
