It is a fact that learning is a  never-ending process for one to enjoy, for it is when we discover new things that we come to find joy and fun in learning begins. The trend in teaching now requires educators who are equipped with the latest innovations in the teaching and learning process. Thus, educators have to hone their craft with a lot of latest trends to produce learners who could take a more active role in the field of education. Teachers need to intensify the pupils’ experiences and keep them engage in hands-on, minds-on and hearts on experiences.

Teachers must be adept in adapting their instruction through various interventions for better access to quality learning. Such instance recognizes the birth of computers and internets where learners are given the great opportunity to explore and embark on various challenges to develop their critical and creative thinking skills.

The trend today is to make lessons more interesting and meaningful to the learners through innovations in teaching; Powerpoint presentation through LCD, Liquid Crystal Display. The E Learning System where pupils are driven to learn new concepts via computer. There goes the social networking which allows pupils to collaboratively do task online. There are also available sites for games and quizzes where educators can make the most out of their pupils’ review sessions. It is the role therefore of the teachers to build strong links between these technological transformation to challenge them to develop their young minds into critical ones. Teachers must be the pupils’ staunch advocate to influence their lifted spirit to achieve, sustain and promote lifelong learning. — Eric L. Macansantos/Udyung Elementary School TIC
