SCC-SBE Embraces Flipped Classroom Approach

Date Posted: June 30, 2020

        To deliver uncompromised and quality education through improved teaching-learning approaches
that are timely and responsive to the demands of the present situation, the School of Basic Education
(SBE) of Southern Christian College embraced the new Flipped Classroom Approach.

        In line with this, the administrators and faculty members of the SCC-SBE underwent a Seminar on
the “Basics of Flipping the Classroom” at the Quality Assurance and Accreditation Center (QuAAC) on
May 20 to June 19, 2020.

        Ms. Angela Rose J. Barrato, a Senior High School faculty, served as the resource speaker of the
seminar. She demonstrated how Schoology works as a Learning Management System to be used by the
SBE faculty for distance learning, both online and offline.

        The first batch of participants of the said seminar included the SBE Director, Mrs. Dana Sue U.
Rojo, along with the three Principals and the Subject Area Coordinators on May 20, 2020. The next batch
of attendees were the teachers from the MAPEH, TLE, and Computer subject areas, followed by the
faculty members from the English and Research disciplines on June 16, 2020, and Mathematics and
Natural Science teachers on June 17, 2020. Faculty members from Filipino and Religious Studies and
Social Sciences also attended the seminar according to their respective batch schedules on June 18-19,
2020, to refrain from conducting any mass gathering.

        Presently, the SBE teachers are preparing their curriculum packages for the upcoming curriculum
year 2020-2021. The use of Flipped Classroom aims to shift students’ roles from passive recipients to
active constructors of knowledge and to explore new and relevant approaches to continue delivering
quality education to the students amid the current crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
