C & E Educational Solutions Group teamed up with international e-learning solutions companies for a featured learning activity for the participants of the 2017 Philippine Education Conference (PEC) held on November 28 and 29, 2017 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.
C & E’s partners for the activity were J2e, an educational software company based in the United Kingdom; Koobits, a Singaporean digital tool and platform developer specializing in mathematics for elementary grades; myOn, an award-winning provider of personalized literacy tools based in Minnesota, USA; and NUADU, a Polish educational solutions provider specializing in integrated assessments and analytics.
Titled “360@60: The 21st-Century Classroom in Focus,” the joint activity was rooted in C & E Educational Solutions Group’s thrust towards 21st-century education. It served as a one-stop shop for exciting applications and tools that highlighted emerging technologies in education to help participants determine which learning solutions address their school’s specific needs and make 21st-century learning work for their institution. 360@60 featured six learning stations that allowed the educators to experience how learning solutions can transform classrooms through exciting hands-on sessions facilitated by the four international partners, C & E’s very own learning management system (LMS), KITE Academy, and C & E’s makerspace division, MakerCE.
Hosted by the Philippine Education Assistance Committee (PEAC), the 2017 PEC with the theme “Achieving the Promise of K to 12,” engaged educational leaders on Philippine education issues and concerns, particularly the implementation of the senior high school program and preparations for delivering the new curricula for contemporary needs.
