FREE Webinar: Assistive Curriculum Sites and Sources for Parents with Diverse Learners

The Teacher’s Gallery in partnership with Best Buddies Philippines and #TheLearningGallery invite you to join a FREE Webinar on Assistive Curriculum Sites and Sources for Parents with Diverse Learners happening this 27 March 2021, Saturday at 9AM.

Children with a learning difficulty and disability benefit from assistive technology tools and resources that play to their strengths and work around their challenges. This webinar will introduce parents and educators to assistive educational resources to accommodate their children’s natural variability in learning preferences.

Let’s Celebrate #ISWPH2020!

Let’s Celebrate #ISWPH2020!

Inclusion is an advocacy that is truly growing in today’s Philippine society, supported by the goal of quality education to be made accessible to all. This has opened our doors to diversity within the space where education thrives, pushing progress forward for students hindered by disability, gender, socioeconomic status, cultural heritage, language preference, and other factors. 

To commend and celebrate these efforts, The Teacher’s Gallery would like to spearhead the 3rd Inclusive Schools Week Celebration here in the Philippines on December 7 – 11, 2020 with the theme: “The Time for Inclusion is Now.”  

Inclusive Schools Week is an annual event in the USA sponsored by the Inclusive Schools Network (ISN) and Stetson & Associates, Inc. This time, the annual event will be spearheaded by The Teacher’s Gallery in the Philippine setting. This is a celebration of fostering inclusion for all students who come from all kinds of backgrounds. 

Principals, administrators, teachers, leaders, students, parents – everyone who plays a role in inclusive education is invited to join the celebration and encouraged to conduct simple activities at any time and day during the Inclusive Schools Week showing how they value and practice inclusion. You can organize your very own ISW with your school! It doesn’t have to be grand – it can be as simple as holding a sign language workshop, to holding a week-long forum series about Inclusive Education.

Through this, we hope to spark a meaningful discussion with educators, students, and parents on what inclusion means in education spaces. These may be a virtual classroom, school, and community-wide initiatives – all contributed by everyone who will participate. By joining together in this celebration, we hope that we would be able to unite as one in creating more inclusive environments within schools and the communities to which they belong, contributing to creating a more inclusive society.

In celebration of National Teachers Month and World Teacher’s Day, The Teacher’s Gallery brings you, The Power of a Teacher’s Heart: Leading and Thriving Amidst Crisis – A Zoomference Series on Educator’s Guide to Holistic Wellbeing in the New Normal.

As we navigate this unprecedented time, we are sure that you have been working round the clock to provide a good learning experience to our dear students. As teachers ensure students’ learning, who’s taking care of our teachers’ wellbeing?

“No one really learns well when teachers are stressed and burned out, which is why I say a stressed and burned out teaching force is an equity issue. If we believe in equity and if we want our students to do well, we have to ensure our educators are doing well, too.” – Dena Simmons, Educator and Researcher  

Teacher friends, this time, it is about YOU.

Learning in the Time of Corona: Introducing the TTG Knowledge Portal!

Learning in the Time of Corona: Introducing the TTG Knowledge Portal!

It truly is a struggle to connect nowadays with the very urgent need for social distancing.  However, this should not mean that we must also distance ourselves from making the world a better place through education — and fostering our personal growth as educators at the same time!

While we are indoors, educators can also do their part in ensuring the future of the world through its future leaders: today’s learners, through brand new education systems and strategies that are emerging in the time of what most are calling “e-learning”.

The Teacher’s Gallery believes in #LearningUninterrupted while we maintain social distancing to protect everyone around us. This is true not only for our learners, but for our educators as well, who are interested in learning and growing during this time.

We introduce the TTG Knowledge Portal as a much-needed resource by our teachers! To foster “e-learning”, we believe that educators must also be able to e-learn to effectively harness the power of technology for education.

To start “e-teaching”, we want to provide you with a few tools that can help you get started on being the best educator you can be in this time:

  • Online Teaching

These courses will help educators effectively and efficiently transition from real-life teaching to online teaching. One of its interesting courses is Virtual Scenarios for Learning, where we can learn to apply Scenario-Based Learning, storytelling, and virtual scenario-building to help learners develop their decision-making skills. These will be helpful for them in real-life scenarios, to be prepared to make important decisions in different disciplines such as medicine and health, law, and engineering.

  • Inclusive Education

Inclusive education is a concept frequently discussed among educators. This will serve as an opportunity for everyone to learn how to ensure that inclusion and equity manifests within the education system they are a part of, be it within the classroom, or encompassing their entire school, or even education on larger scales. These courses also tackle education for learners with autism, and how to make learning accessible to them. As a whole, these courses will foster a holistic understanding of what “inclusive education” as a concept is, and how it applies in different contexts.

As we continue to make social distancing a part of our lives for now to ensure the safety of all, let’s make sure that we still live in a world of #LearningUninterrupted.
