“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

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.

Held at D’ Cup Coffee Republic on April 14, 2018 at 1:00 – 5:00 p.m., this learning event is for newbie homeschoolers and those who are exploring this educational option.

Homeschooling in the Philippines has slowly but surely gained popularity in the last 15-20  years. Previously seen as an educational method that was only available to young actors and actresses and the elite or rich, it is now a viable alternative to sending children to traditional schools. What is homeschooling and how is it done? Michelle Padrelanan plans to answer that and other questions pertaining to homeschooling that will give the attendee the confidence to homeschool their child.

Parents will also learn the pros and cons of homeschooling, how to start homeschooling, how to craft their family’s homeschool mission statement, how to handle major life events while homeschooling and where to enroll. As a bonus feature, attendees will receive a list of free homeschool resources that can be found online.

After the seminar, attendees will be Ready To Homeschool!  They will have the confidence to embark on their family’s homeschool journey with a vision of the future of their homeschooled children.

Michelle Padrelanan has been homeschooling their children since 2002. She has successfully graduated their two older children who are now thriving in college. Her passion for homeschooling has lead her to create her blog in 2010, Beyond The Silver and The Gold, to encourage and inspire other families to homeschool.  She firmly believes that the key to nation building is building up a strong family. Therefore, parenting needs to be intentional. She and her husband work together to build up their children’s faith in God, develop their character and strengthen their family values. She is well-known in the homeschool community as an influencer, blogger, speaker and a veteran homeschool mom.
