Education in the age of the millennial: The best of both worlds

Classrooms are becoming bigger and bigger, encompassing the whole world!

With massive reforms being done in the Philippine education system, 21st-century classrooms are adopting the blended learning approach, a more individualized and integrated approach to learning with the use of new technologies.

Blended Learning is a central component of the ASEAN Integration and the K-12 program which combines in-person instruction and print materials with online learning tools.

“The 21st-century teaching is blended learning by course of technology—it involves both digital and print media,” shared Jovita de Jesus, auditor of the Academic Booksellers Association of the Philippines (ABAP) and president of F&J de Jesus, Inc.

Stepping away from “Jurassic teaching” which relies solely on printed materials as resources, technology finds its place in the classroom with both digital and online learning resources offered to students and educators.

At the 22nd year of the Philippine Academic Book Fair, academic booksellers, importers, and distributors take on the challenge of bridging the technological gaps, especially in general education.

“Blended learning came with the need to be at par with our neighboring countries and that’s what we’re trying to deliver to the education sector,” said De Jesus.

Educators and schools can explore a new horizon of learning and adapt their classrooms to fit the needs of millennials with the latest academic books, references, Filipiniana and Catholic books, magazines, journals, educational video and audio materials, publishing aids, electronic references and other materials for academic institutions at the Philippine Academic Book Fair.

Organized by ABAP and Primetrade Asia, Inc., the 22nd Philippine Academic Book Fair offers up-to-date materials at lower prices and is slated on June 20 – 23, at the Megatrade Hall 1, SM Megamall, Mandaluyong City.
