SDO SAN JUAN CITY HOLDS THE FIRST DIVISION RESEARCH FESTIVAL
“Action Research entails action. SDO San Juan adopts the idea of solving problems and improving practices through outcomes-based research initiatives” – Dr. Ibañez
The 2018 Division Research Festival of SDO San Juan City has unfolded last December 04, 2018 at the Division Conference Hall with at least a number of research experts and enthusiasts from the different schools within the division.
This year’s theme - “Revolutionizing Research and Development Initiatives” has captured the integrated and comprehensive Basic Education Research Program in the City of San Juan. The fusion of this idea in research was aptly encapsulated by the brilliant mind of SDO San Juan’s new OIC SDS, Dr. Alejandro G. Ibañez, who himself is a research practitioner for many years.
The research festival gathered the school heads, master teachers, researchers and other stakeholders in the division with a sole purpose of witnessing the research outputs and research developments initiated by the division within the curriculum year.
The activity was highlighted by the presentation of Dr. Ibañez of the 2019 Research Direction of SDO San Juan City wherein a whole lot of package of Research innovations, developments and policies were presented to advocate and actualize the said direction. These formidable research developments validated his expertise and vast experiences in the field of research.
The LGU-supported event has also showcased the research presentation skills of seven (7) teacher-researchers in the division. With the magnanimous assistance of the local government through Madam Guia G. Gomez, all presenters were rewarded cash prizes for their efforts not only in presenting the researches but also in conducting studies that would spell improvements in the desired learning outcomes.
Mrs. Ruzviguima G. Perez, Master Teacher II of Kabayanan Elementary School, emerged as the “Best Presenter” with her research anchored on Music as a K to 12 Strategy in teaching students. 2nd Place winner was Hernan L. Apurada, Division Science Coordinator, who elaborated the significance of developing an intervention material for diverse Science learners. Mrs. Melany C. Fernandez, Teacher III of San Juan National High School, grabbed the 3rd Place with her research on the support mechanism for Learners with Special Educational Needs (LSEN).
The 2018 Research Festival is an avenue of collectively showcasing the research directions of the division anchored on DepEd’s policy of a data-driven and research-based policy formulations and development programs.
