Board licensure examination for professional teachers. Community. International standards. Urged teachers. Students. Lenor BrionesOnline resources: View the Article Scope and content: Education Secretary Leonor Briones on Friday challenged teachers to revolutionize the way they teach to help their students “accept change” and cope with the challenges of the ever-changing world. Speaking at MB Hot Seat, a rountable discussion with Manila Bulletin editors, Briones underscored the need for teachers not to focus too much on the current trends since many things are changing. “By the time our learners graduate, whatever we taught them would be irrelevant,” she said. “In five years’ time, the catching up that you need to do with knowledge will be really massive and tremendous,” she added. Briones noted that even three years would be too long because every day, something new is happening. “Every day, theories are being challenged, every day something new is being invented and if you are not abreast with all these things, then your learners will not be prepared for the world outside,” she said. What teachers should be teaching, Briones said, is how students can “cope with change because the world is changing very fast.” She noted that teachers should realize that things will “not be the way they were taught by their teachers.” Thus, students should be “taught to be creative and be taught to solve problems not only to cope but to accept change.” Accepting change, Briones said, is difficult for many people. “The young people, we have to teach them right from the beginning that the world is changing and it’s not necessarily be a friendly world it might even be a hostile environment,” she said.

Education Secretary Leonor Briones on Friday challenged teachers to revolutionize the way they teach to help their students “accept change” and cope with the challenges of the ever-changing world.

Briones noted that even three years would be too long because every day, something new is happening. “Every day, theories are being challenged, every day something new is being invented and if you are not abreast with all these things, then your learners will not be prepared for the world outside,” she said.

Accepting change, Briones said, is difficult for many people. “The young people, we have to teach them right from the beginning that the world is changing and it’s not necessarily be a friendly world it might even be a hostile environment,” she said.
