One step ahead in e-Learning. This is what Quantum students from General Santos City experienced as they take part in several school activities for the month of July.
The Quantum Academy Inc., now on its second year subscription of using GENYO e-learning, is maximizing the use of technology as some of its activities kicked off when the month of July started.
GENYO class. From chalk and chalkboard to whiteboard and marker; now, computers and internet. These are the new tools of learning for students as they read and listen to their lessons online inside the classroom and answer their interactive activities in the computer room. As the school moved a notch higher in upgrading their facilities by adding up computers and internet in each classroom, the students not only benefit from the eye-popping visuals and its accompanying audio but at the same they enjoy learning their lessons.
As what Reginald Falgui III, a grade six student said, “GENYO is helpful especially in Science because when our teacher can’t fully explain or draw properly our lesson like cells, she uses GENYO and we easily learn. It is much easier with GENYO.”
Online Teacher Diagnostic Test. To measure the student’s capabilities at the start of the school year, Quantum teachers conduct an exam in their specified subject area and this time, the school decided to make it online. Using the test builder feature of GENYO, teachers had converted their own tests and let the students answer the questions. Results were then easily tracked to check on the student’s competence.
Online Student Election. Teachers don’t need to print several copies of paper for an event done only once. This time around, high school students voted their choice for the student government (SG) leaders online with just a click of a button. Within minutes, SG adviser Virgil Faderogao was able to trace the winners from the election using the Survey feature of GENYO and declare the new set of winners during the weekly assembly of students. As he had mentioned, “With GENYO, we get fast and accurate results in a matter of few minutes. After the election, we already knew the winners for the student government officers this school year.”
Homepage Development and PowerPoint Presentation. In celebration of the Nutrition month, Quantum students also created their own homepage and PowerPoint presentation with themes on Cottage Industry and Livelihood. Given a time limit, students designed their own homepage and powerpoint in which they uploaded in GENYO via the offline homework feature.
“GENYO paved the way for easy transmission of file. With the aid of its offline homework, access for Homepage Development final presentation became a breeze as we just download all their entries in just a few clicks in a different computer,” Dealson Bagorio said as he facilitated the event during the HELE/TLE week.
Using the offline homework feature of GENYO, students are able to upload their final work online and teachers download it in another computer for checking. With this, students also have a back up copy of their work when technical difficulties were encountered during the event.
Other activities that helped Quantum boost e-classroom include teacher trainings wherein the on-site learning integration specialist conduct trainings on several features of the GENYO e-learning system. Also, students went through the online elimination of Battle of the Brains, an intra-school quiz bee competition to measure the students’ academic capabilities. Truly, these activities make Quantum one step ahead in integrating technology in the classroom. For further information, you can check out http://www.genyo.com.ph.#
