We join Janette Toral in encouraging elementary and high school teachers to participate in the Philippine Schools Cyberfair 2010: Believe & Unite, and engage your students in a performance-based collaborative, project-design competition.
The Philippine Schools Cyberbair (http://www.cyberfair.ph) aims to help students connect with their local communities, increase global awareness, and helps equip students with 21st century learning skills.
Janette Toral writes in Encouraging schools to join the Philippine Schools Cyberfair 2010: Believe & Unite:
This CyberFair competition/exhibition requires participants to complete three tasks – publish, reflect, evaluate. Student-produced projects will spotlight people, places, businesses and other things in their local community.
Please help get the word out. You can blog about this, post a tweet in Twitter, update your status in Facebook, or even mention this in your Multiply sites.
Janette also suggests another way to help: ” Provide technical advise to teachers/students in putting up their blog or website for their entries. Schools can register up to February 28, 2010. Website entry needs to be completed by March 7.”
If you’re a student or a teacher who wants to quickly put up a website, please sign up for your free tutorial at http://www.PinoyBizNow.com
Relax… you are not required to have highly technical skills. If you can send an email, then you can easily publish your own blog.
And if you can attach a photo to your email, then your blog will also have photos. If you attach more than one photo to your email, then your blog will automatically have an online album.
Given the March 7 deadline, please do not worry too much about the design of your blog or site. Focus more on the words that you will write, and how well those words will reach out and influence the different members of your community
So please sign up for your free blogging tutorial today at PinoyBizNow.com, and learn how your fellow Pinoys are using simple e-mail to build high-impact blogs. 🙂
