Online Learning of Science and Math: Now Accessible

Now, Internet savvy kids will have a more fun-filled way of learning.

Recently, Advanced Science and Technology Institute (DOST-AST) and the Science Education Institute (DOST-SEI) launched Courseware Website at the Philippine Science High School, Davao City. Courseware Website is a virtual classroom that features interactive lessons in math and science.

The website features interactive and animated science and mathematics modules released in 2006 in CD format and now are made available online. Students, teachers, parents and individuals looking for a novel way to teach and learn about science and math can log on for free.

During the launching, Director Denis Villorente recounted the milestones of the courseware project, underlining the significance of information technology in uplifting the student’s imagination, creativity and interest in education. Elementary pupils who attended the science camp in Philippine Science High School -Davao had hands on experience on some of the modules. They navigated through the courseware webpage and answered exercises that followed the lessons.

ASTI and SEI are currently implementing as similar project that plans to develop 500 modules on science and mathematics for the secondary level. These are expected to be completed in 2012. [via PIA]
