Share this

It’s the Teacher’s month! What better way to celebrate it than to gather teachers in an afternoon of fun and learning?!

The Google Educators Group of Cagayan de Oro paid tribute to the awesome teachers in the city through the Teacher Appreciation Day: Going Beyond the Classroom  last Saturday, October 25, 2014 at Primavera Residences.

There were 4 sessions that gave way for teachers to explore things that they can use to improve their crafts, even on things that they do which are beyond their work as classroom teachers.

Of course, the afternoon started with a session on GOOGLE APPS FOR EDUCATION (GAFE) facilitated by Jessie Andallasa, a Google Certified Teacher in Cagayan de Oro.

 

The teachers were so enthusiastic and interested in learning these different apps provided for free by Google.

The second session was to introduce Blogging for teachers. This was introduced by former CDObloggers President and an award-winning Mindanao blogger, Vic Marion MadriagaAfter the event, many teachers were already inquiring about further information on Blogging.

The third session was something that all teachers loved and it was about Basic Fashion for Teachers given by no less than, Mr. Benjie S. Manuel, President of the Oro Fashion Designers Guild.

The last session was on Artistry for Teachers: Creativity Unleashed. It was a very “Physical” session wherein teachers used their Voice, Body, and Mind in doing the activities. The teachers had fun! This was facilitated by Owen Jaen, chairman of the Actors’ Quarters Educational Movement Inc.
