MANILA, Philippines — Children today are digital natives in every sense of the word. Born in the age of touch-screens, tablets have become their pacifiers, interactive apps their rattles.
Though there is still much debate on the effects of second screen exposure on children, technology is an undeniable part of their development landscape. Digital tools will always be there but the question is: How are we supposed to use it?
As the world reconciles technology and tradition, how does a sector as fundamental as education make the transition? Learning goes beyond books – it’s about acquiring lessons, skills, and values not only found in the classroom. What are the changes being conducted and how does the growing significance of digital tools impact learning in this day and age?
Last December, Rappler, in partnership with Globe myBusiness, also hosted a live roundtable entitled: Are Philippine schools future ready?
