Why Business Process Outsourcing should be included in DepED's Curriculum

Philippine Buildings Ortigas FacilitiesThe Philippine outsourcing sector has been steadily picking up momentum over the past years. As of time, it seems to have reached a tipping point where the Filipinos are engaged in this business as part of day-to-day sustenance. It caters to the needs of people in terms of telecommunication and other sort of information to come by. Philippines will be known as the service capital of the world not only because of our language proficiency but because of our innate talents that make us world class.

Despite the economic problems that the Philippines are facing, it is unavoidable still that it encounters another problem. The nation itself faces the impact of notions and problems. It is the problem or notion that it can handle only call center and low-risk services work. Indeed, inbound customer services account for about two-thirds of the US$6.8 million in professional services the Philippines exported last year. Although the government has expressed confidence and interest in expanding beyond voice-related services, the method or strategy could be more focused than it is at present.Cebu Outsourcing buildings They are seeking more prospects, building up the infrastructure and spreading the industry throughout the country, but most people think they could position the IT industry better when selling the proposition. Now a day, outsourcing companies are hiring medical graduates, online teachers, Engineers and Architecture as Steal Detailer of US building plans, IT professionals, accountants, online lawyers, marketing professionals, fine arts graduates, online technicians, copy writers and even secretarial graduates are now working in Outbound call center as agent who prepared document reports, appointment setting, travel and meeting scheduling and customer search generation.

IT support services companies in the Philippines, for example, could search for a niche serving mid-market corporations in the global market. That's not to say the Filipino BPO market has been stagnant. We expect more jobs to come, more employments to come, not just today but beyond the times of occupations, work sustenance and existence. Just a few years ago, the BPO industry employed just 4,000 people. Today, 100 times as many people work in the industry, making the Philippines the second largest low-cost BPO destination in the world. The objective of industry leaders is to see 1 million Filipinos working in IT and business process outsourcing by 2010 so the Philippines can have expected 10 percent of the total global services market.

The people in academe specially the Department of Education and Commission of Education should spearheaded the development of professionals that will lead to the dream of every Outsourcing companies in the Philippines. That is world's number 1 business service provider through offshore outsourcing.

The Filipinos pray to God always that outsourcing business never ceases. It must not stop today and must continue beyond the times of prolific sustenance.

10 Suggested Criteria for Selection of Learning Experiences

1. Can the experience bring optimum benefit to the learners? Take and second look in your exercises and ask yourself if these exercises or activities can be replicated by the learners when they go outside in the school. Would this activities serve as the mirror on what is happening in their surrounding or just a house work and duties so the same conclusion can be applied in the situation that recall the learning experiences?

public elementary pupils2. Does the experience help meet the evident needs of the learner? Many students will be self motivated if they discover that the activities are timely to their needs. The learner might have a term paper project and it is very timely that your subject matter is about word processor software. You will notice the aggressiveness of the student to learn the PowerPoint presentation because they have classroom report or oral examination from other subjects and they like to deliver it with the help of ICT. The learner might be task to create or design a classroom newsletter and it timely that you demonstrate the use of MS publisher application software.

3. Are the learners likely to be interested in the experience? As the teachers, it is your task to device an activities that will arouse the interest of the learner. Let said you are Social Studies teacher your topic is about historical account in the landing of the Allied Soldiers in the beach of Normandy. For the high school student, this event might not be relevant to them yet once presented with the motion pictures together the possible scenarios if this famous event did not happen what will be the future of the countries involve including the learners country and their fore fathers. Bringing the topics or discussion into the personal level of the learner is a great method to attain the appreciation objective.

4. Does the experience encourage the learners to inquire further? This is the best opportunity of a good subject matter, a well delivered lesson complement by lively exercises and by a dramatic generalization. Have you noticed your student leaving the classroom characterized by silent and thinking mode? Inferring on the previous situation and organizing thoughts from the lesson. Have you experienced by a situation whereby the student approach you and said “Sir I have answered all the exercises in Chapter 5”. So you will say, very good you advance already. You might have a situation in which the student said Sir teaches me to how do create a form using excel program please. Then your answer is “that would be the next topic young man”. You could experience the situation where the student approached you and show her work which not included in the assignment. That would be a great application of learning experience and an evident of transfer of learning.

Lastly, you might experience this as a teacher. Dong, ni unsa nimo pag buhat ana, tudlo I ako bi? (James how did you do that? Demonstrate it to me right away). Then I call the attention of the entire class to watch the demonstration as part of strategy of praise and motivation as well as collaborative learning’s.

I have lost time and ideas to discuss those pointer below so I hope our visitors can share their knowledge and experiences.

5. Does the experience stimulate the learners to engage in higher levels of thinking and reasoning?

6. Does the experience involve the use of different senses and sense perceptions?
7. Does the experience approximate real life situations?
8. Is the experience in accord with the life patterns of the learners?
9. How contemporary is the experience? Is it timely and relevant?
10. Do the experiences provide for the attainment of a range of instructional objectives?

DepEd Offials and the Noodles Story

Senator Mar Roxas lost his temper to some DepEd personnel during Senate hearing on DepEd feeding program. Since the beginning, the DepEd officials have published a press release about this issue claiming that there is nothing wrong in the purchased of noodles in last year's feeding program.
deped teachers and officials
During Senate hearing, it was learned the DepED officials purchased a Noodle pack at price of P15 peso while the market value in any store or malls for the noodle pack is between P5 to P7 pesos only. Based on Senator computation, there is discrepancy of P11 in the purchased of noodles last year.

On the otherhand, the Congress through the initiative of militant legislator proposed a separate house investigation on what he describe as "noodle scam".

Teodoro casino said the company who received the contract is Jeverps Manufacturing Corp for P19M worth of noodles this year that cost the Government P22 per pack.

He also rejected the claim of the company that the noodle pack do not have ingredients of eggs nor malungay after the test conducted by the experts from other Asian countries.

DepEd's officials said that it was not fair to compare the commercial noodles and the noodles procured by the DepEd because it is especially formulated to meet the nutritional needs of the pupils.
