With DepEd's recent launch of the K+12 basic education reform program, private schools are equally supportive of this move.

"This seminar aims to help school administrators, subject area coordinators and teachers to understand the rational for the K+12 curriculum and help them implement the changes in the curriculum effectively" states Dina Berioso, managing director of IBC Book Consolidators, Inc.

Atty. M.C. Tonisito Umali, DepEd assistant secretary for Legal and Legislative Affairs will talk on "The rational for the K-12 curriculum and DepEd's implementation program."

Luis Prudencio Salamat, grade school principal of PAREF Southridge School, and Rev. Fr. Gerardo de Villa, OSB , principal of Basic Education Department of San Beda College Alabang, will share how their schools have been successfully implementing Grade K-7 curriculum using the Understanding by Design (UbD) curriculum framework and the spiral progression approach. Fr. de Villa, also the vice president of the Catholic Association of the Philippines, will further discuss how their school has developed its curriculum for the purpose of providing high school graudates with employable skills, as envisioned by DepEd.

Myla Katzav, general manager of Ideacademy and representative of Glencoe/McGraw-Hill Education will showcase Mcgraw-Hill's curriculum for Math and Science.

Katzav will also present teaching strategies and materials to promote the inquiry and critical thinking skills of students.

Paul Grainger, product manager of ELT/School of National Geographic Learning, will present research on how today's students think and process information fundamentally differently from previous generations. This data has serious implications on the competencies required by today's K-12 students, as well as the methods used to motivate learners and facilitate learning. Using examples from National Geographic Learning's exciting materials, participants of this workshop will learn how print and media content can be combined in inspiring, innovative ways to bring our world and its different cultures to life, and take students on an unforgettable journey from the classroom to the world.
