DepEd urges regional offices to create own platforms to address erroneous modules
MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Education (DepEd) on Friday urged its regional offices to come up with its own versions of platforms where errors in self-learning modules (SLMs) can be reported by the public.
Education Undersecretary for Field Operations Revsee Escobedo said this will help the department to identify faster the regions where the erroneous modules are being used by students.
“Ang mga regional offices ay ineencourage na magbuo ng localized versions ng Error Watch, nang sa gayon ay mabilis ‘yung pag-iimbestiga kung saang rehiyon o division ‘yung module na mayroong mali at nang sa gayon ay mabilis din ‘yung pagtugon at mabilis din ‘yung pagtuwid para sa mga errors na makikita sa mga self-learning modules,” he said in an online press briefing.
(Regional offices are also encouraged to come up with their localized versions of Error Watch so that the investigation on which region or division the modules are being used would be faster. This will also allow us to immediately correct the errors in the self-learning modules.)
The DepEd Error Watch aims to receive and collate reports of blunders found in learning materials, such as SLMs and TV episodes, that will be forwarded to appropriate offices for validation and correction. DepEd urged the public to report such errors to [email protected] or 0961-6805334.
From October 12 to 20, DepEd has received reports on 41 errors in SLMs being used by students amid the distance learning being implemented by schools during the COVID-19 pandemic.
