welcoming the challenge
OF THE NEW NORMAL
Hua Siong College of Iloilo acknowledges that the current COVID-19 crisis presents many challenges across borders, creating conflicts, raising fears, and building uncertainties for what’s ahead. However, the school believes that learning must keep going, regardless of the constraints we face. True to its goal for the total development of the individual, in service to the country and global community, Hua Siong College of Iloilo, through online distance education, would like to continue its mission “to nurture well-rounded individuals imbued with the school’s guiding principles of Diligence, Sincerity, Loyalty, Courage and 21st century skills, we commit to: (1) pursue inclusive, innovative and e-based instruction; (2) uphold quality and excellence in programs and services; (3) optimize professional and competent faculty and staff in the delivery of programs and services; (4) maximize state-of-the-art technology in support of instruction; and, (5) engage stakeholders towards sustainability of the school and the wider community.”
Moving forward with the new normal, opportunities for our learners and teachers to engage in the new ways of learning and teaching will be highlighted. While this may be challenging in the beginning, it will give our learners a chance to show resilience, independence, and creativity. Furthermore, it will ignite the teachers grit and flexibility to design more authentic learning experiences for the learners.
The vision: “an academic institution that blends the best of Chinese and Filipino cultures in the integral development of leaders given to the service of the community and the world.”
RED PHOENIX MILES is an online distance learning program to ensure that every learner will continue to get Hua Siong’s Educational Standards at the comforts of the learners’ homes during this period of uncertainty and disruption.
Hua Siong’s hybrid distance learning program is part of a much wider Education Technology Program that aims to deliver quality, relevant, and responsive education to learners.
Hua Siong College of Iloilo aims to keep her learners’ learning while staying safe at home amidst the current pandemic. Thus, bringing Hua Siong Education into the homes of her learners.
RED PHOENIX MILES will employ both synchronous and asynchronous modes of facilitating learning. We will call this the “I do” (learner) and “We Do” (teacher-learner; learner-learner) interaction in the virtual classroom. All subjects will be delivered through Hybrid Distance Learning.
Hua Siong College of Iloilo school leaders and teachers were trained to deliver instruction in a Hybrid Distance Learning. This learning program is contextualized, and all instructions are learner-centered.
PREPARATION FOR LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
Allot space in the house as a “learning space.” This can be any space to work and store materials that will not be disrupted within the duration of the distance learning.
Learners should still be monitored when online whenever possible. Consider having a dedicated time daily where a parent or a trusted adult can be present to monitor/supervise and ensure safe on-task decision making.
Allot time in your daily plan for exercise, social opportunities with family members and brain breaks.
