What do you Tend to Forget?

“Man, a Being that Forgets”???

ANTHROPOLOGY, being the study of mankind and all its aspects is one of the Foundations of Education for it looks into the distinct characteristics, way of thinking, feeling & acting of the SEEKER OF KNOWLEDGE.  

Being exposed to various circumstances, Sir Edward Talylor, an Idealist Philosophical Scholar of Plato articulated that a certain “complex whole” is being cultivated until man makes himself “belong” to social practices — thus the so called CULTURE: “cultura”/”cultus” = care – where man is eventually faced with the issues of “freewill” and the relationship between rightness and goodness.

Anthropologists contend that it is “human nature” to “gradually accept shared beliefs and values of group through ENCULTURATION & SOCIALIZATION, both LEARNING PROCESSES which eventually tribe people to a complete package of a certain culture called RACE.

Dealing with the origin, nature, and destiny of human beings,

WHAT IS IT then in ANTHROPOLOGY that we need to regard significant?

What is it then that MAN TENDS TO FORGET?

What do you, as a person then as a teacher tend to disregard?

How will you use Anthropology to affect our generation in the future?

What’s in your Toolbox?


“In the eyes of a child, there is joy, there is laughter,

There is hope, there is trust

For the lessons of life, there is no better teacher

Than the look in the eyes of a child.”

Credits to this Video:

With that child looking at you each day without you noticing much …

With that person whom you’re unmindfully getting acquaintances …

With those many or several insignificant glances you’ve made with one and all …

With those eyes you’ve never met and seen such speck of joy and laughter, hope and trust — YOU COULD HAVE HAD THE CHANCE TO SHAPE THE FUTURE!

Many stories could have been touching only if told and a lot of life’s long hidden meaning could have been explored!

Dreams should have been identified during youth and plans could have already been in progress even then — SHOULD YOU HAVE MATCHED THE HIDDEN FEELINGS with whatever it is that you have RIGHT THERE – just WITHIN YOUR REACH!

TEACHER as you are or even if NOT practicing AS OF YET, so long as you CARE ABOUT THE FUTURE and so long as you enjoy CONNECTIVITY THRU SOCIAL MEDIA & other means, you have all the opportunity to learn THE LESSONS OF LIFE from each look in the eye of a child!

Much more that you are enrolled in this course, what could be your edge?

BW#2. Design

What has PEDAGOGY to do with the raging technology which is generously giving us all the options to promote quality of performances both of the teacher and of the students … and even of their parents in collaboration?

ON PURPOSE, what should you do then to LIVE-UP to that “thrill to achieve” which lies and lives deep within you?

If you are to design your own life, what purpose will you be DRIVEN at — for you to  MAKE A DIFFERENCE in the future?

“You’ve found the place to walk the path you’ve chosen

You’ll never miss the world you left behind

When life gives life, it’s happiness unbroken

When you give love, it’s love you’ll find!”

How should you Synergize?

Technology is just a tool. In terms of getting the kids working together and motivating them,    the teacher is the most important. – Bill Gates.

SUCH A GREAT TRUST to us, Teachers … right?

Cooperative Process, Active involvement, Integration, Motivation, Socialization, Understanding, Connectivity, Creativity/innovation & Discovery – just to name some of the Principles that should influence our actions as to what is right and which is wrong every time we think of our “being the most important” mostly in motivating our students.

YET, what could have been wrong if we would consider some simple realities that there are some students who dread going to school or who get bored with the usual classroom routine, the never-ending “any question, do you understand?” lines subject-after-subject, and all the likes?

The Learner, schooling, motivation, looking-into, developmental tasks
When we fail to “look-into” our Learners …

Would you mind taking into consideration that it would take … NOT THE BEST  — rather an “influential teacher” to make THE LEARNER LOVE “LEARNING”?

Good for us to belong to the 21st Century where we no longer just have “chalk & board”, “manila paper & pentel pen” – TECHNOLOGY already have a lot to offer variations after variations – but the thing is, do we really get to SYNERGIZE these TECHs with the Basic Learning Theories, Principles & Practices?

How then should we facilitate SYNERGY in its TOTALITY?

Do you hear what your students need? Do you also listen to your own SELF?

What does your EAR HEAR everytime you’re preparing for a lesson? Everytime you would go to your next class?

REFLECT! For it might be that “such thing which you do not hear deep within yourself would be that same response that your students would have” when you’re there in that class whose lesson you didn’t really hear beforehand.#sunset

What’s your “Missing Link”?

“The only thing worse than being blind

is having sight but has no vision!” — Hellen Keller

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s determination to see what was there in the past that would pave way to something certain in the future.

Man would hope to head towards a certain direction.  Naturally, we would tend to feel that we’ve already exerted a lot of effort; we would tend to engage; and persist; and trigger on certain goals — only to find out that we’re doing things the wrong way because there are a lot  that we do not see; nor notice; nor consider.

What then should we do for us to clearly see “the WHO that we are now”?

What is it that we are possibly depriving ourselves from which block our sight to clearer vision?

Whose story “affects” your sense of direction?

What is that vision that you have gaze at?

What’s the “WHY”?

Selfies, status posts, tweets, blogs, #hugotlines, captured vids and the likes — name it, the Social Media contain variations and a lot more! Whatever there are, one and all would always be excited to keep on going back to their posts and see how many likes, reactions & hits they’ve got!

Exciting, isn’t it? — but it’s all somewhere OUT THERE!

YET, THE IRONY! — deep within each show-offs are actually searching souls. Lonesome SOMEWHERE “IN THERE”! — longing deep within!

Such a vast world with interconnected connections — yet, VOID OF MEANING! And yes, for the longest time of existence of Facebook, Instagram, You Tube, Tweeter, Google, Linkedin, Tumbler, Blogger and the likes, that same longing for affirmations still go on and on and on …

Technology has all been set, Apps keep on growing in variations; sometimes we no longer even know what alternative would best fit our convenience, yet still, some vastness remain not-filled-in!

But what do you think is the “WHY”?

What is there that we actually need to evaluate?

How do you give meaning to a meaningless world?

What message should come across?

What should be your technology? … How would you INSPIRE through it?

What’s YOUR CALL?  🙂

BW#1. What's your Technology?

If you were a Cup…

BLOG POST 1. Week 3 Output

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Given the chance to choose among assortments:

porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal …

plain looking, expensive, exquisite …

Would you consciously choose for yourself the best cup? Which cup would you choose for a blend of coffee?

In some instance, we may be judged for wanting only the best for ourselves.  While others may consider that the cup adds no quality to the coffee.  What’s your take on this?

If “Life is the Coffee”, and the jobs, money & position in society are the cups which are just tools to hold and contain life , would your type of cup matter?

If they say “life is like a cup of coffee”,                           
how would your cup make sense?

Bring it up here, if you were a cup, let this piece of thought be an avenue to tell the world — foremost to your “SELF” how THE WHO THAT YOU ARE could make a difference – not actually among the assortments – but for a BLEND OF COFFEE called “life”! #sunset






What should a “21st Century Manager” BUILD?

#ALS #alleigjoi
What are we actually Building”?

How can you be an “Affective” Manager?

Education is made accessible!

The right to free Basic Education is being tailored-fit to Filipinos who do not have a chance to attend and finish formal basic education from Grades 1-6 and Years 1-4 due to various distinct reasons through the Alternative Learning System

#21st Century #education #alternatives #ALS #learning #dropouts #liberate
 Change. Shift.Cure.

Such a great HOPE … supposedly?!?

Every bit of chance, yet waiting for one and all to just grab!

Among the many countries in the world who believe in Survival, the Philippines could indeed stand out with its  different Modes of Education from Non-Formal to Formal Theoretical Orientations. The Current Trends which lay down the many Alternatives and array of choices for various age groups: youth and adults are but blessings that abound elsewhere.

Chances and opportunities are just waiting to liberate us — to make us “level up” from whatever stage or status in life we’re in.

–Yet, how much are we still willing to learn?

— why are there still some who fail to GRIP FOR SURVIVAL?

— why do some, still plead for re-cure while crying over some state of “DEPRIVATION”?

What could have been wrong? … what else remains to be wrong?

What else should we beseech to accomplish the Philippine [Education for All] EFA 2015 National Action Plan entitled “Functionally Literate Filipinos, An Educated Nation.”?

How could FUNCTIONALITY be possible in our nation?  What is your COMMITMENT?

We don’t actually need to be an ALS Coach/Teacher to do something. We should not stop where the semester ended. What purpose or mission do you see then to be an “AFFECTIVE MANAGER in the 21st CENTURY”? 

Why “affective”?
