Mum Reviews: OneClass.com’s Free Tutoring Program With Livestreaming

The Covid-19 pandemic has disrupted classes all over the world, keeping most students safe at home while we ride the virus out. This poses an additional challenge to mothers and parents who find themselves worrying about their children’s education and learning for the first time in a long time.

It is fortunate that some schools have stepped up and begun offering online classes to make up for the missed lessons and classes in school. But for children whose schools do not provide alternative learning, it is rather problematic and surely another thing to worry about for parents.

Today, I am sharing an awesome #mumfind for mums who are rather in a bind and finding themselves stressing about how to keep their children learning, and keep them away from their games and gadgets even for a little while, as they stay at home during this outbreak.

Education: “No Place Like Home” Philippine Homeschool Conventioin 2019

announcement, children, events, children learning, education, homeschooling, press release

“There is no school equal to a decent home, and no teacher equal to a virtuous parent.” So goes a quote attributed to well-known nonviolence movement leader and Nobel Prize winner Mahatma Gandhi.

Indeed, truer words have never been said. After all, children first learn within the confines of their homes amidst loving parents and well-meaning caregivers. At home, children learn the basics of communicating, personal care, and proper conduct. It is within the safety of the home that they first learn about family, love, and security.

This is why we from Educating for Life or EFL want to gather together with our fellow homeschoolers as one community at the Philippine Homeschool Convention {PHC} 2019: to connect with and inspire one another to be the “teachers” and build the “schools” that Gandhi was talking about.

EFL, a group composed of four homeschooling moms, organizes events for homeschoolers and other individuals or groups that are into homeschooling and what we like to call “intentional education.” We have been organizing events for families ~ homeschoolers, in particular ~ since 2014.

This year, EFL, in partnership with Moneygment and SMX Convention Center, SM Aura Premier, is pleased to present the No Place Like Home Philippine Homeschool Convention.

Believing that there is no place like home ~ especially when it comes to teaching our children—we invite our fellow parents to gather together at this year’s PHC so we can equip ourselves and bravely forge ahead in the difficult but extremely rewarding task of educating our children not just academically, but in other aspects too.

Character. Virtues. Life lessons. These are things that children don’t normally learn from textbooks and within classroom walls.

It is the essence of home, of family, of this virtuous calling of educating our children that we celebrate in the upcoming No Place Like Home: Philippine Homeschool Convention 2019.

To be held on 07 September, 2019 at the SMX Convention Center, SM Aura Premier, Taguig City, this year’s convention will gather hundreds of Filipino parents and provide them with inspiration and encouragement to live out their calling as their children’s primary educators.

REX: Facing The 4th  Industrial Revolution With Holistic Learning

Whenever a discovery or breakthrough  in technology or process creates an impact on how we go about our daily lives, we often hear people say the phrase ~ “a new era has arrived.”  This could be the simplest description to explain  an Industrial Revolution ~ the emergence of an innovation that introduces a new way of living.

Marking of Four Industrial Revolutions

education, press release, announcement, technology

There have been four industrial revolutions  that created an impact on economies, lifestyles and  social landscapes.

The First Industrial Revolution was marked by the discovery of steam and water which  led to the construction of machines replacing manual labor by  humans and animals. The Second Industrial Revolution is where  electricity and internal combustion emerged, a breakthrough  that led to the development of convenient modes of transportation like cars and airplanes. It also made possible communication via  radio and telephone and  opened the gates for mass production in manufacturing.

Electronics, the internet, and information technology helped improve speed and productivity which marked the Third Industrial Revolution. It is referred to as the early onset of the digital revolution as we shift from  analog and electronic to digital technologies. The Fourth Industrial Revolution has built on this innovation and brought in a disruption that blurred the lines between physical, biological, and industrial. Internet of Things {IoT}, Artificial Intelligence, robotics, and 3D printing are just some of the words passed around today as part of the daily conversation. While entering a fully automated world creates a myriad of opportunities packed with great excitement, it also poses a more significant challenge for us all to face.
