The Series of Computer Trainings I Conducted for Teachers (Summer 2009)

The Series of Computer Trainings I Conducted for Teachers (Summer 2009)

Category: Personal


.....

As a Technical Specialist for GEM’s CLIC (Computer Literacy and Internet Connection) component assigned in the provinces of Cotabato, Maguindanao and Sultan Kudarat, part of my responsibility is to oversee the computer delivery and internet installation to our recipient schools. Whenever there’s a need to repair the computer units and the internet connection, I also accompany our partners in going back to the area. Just like the time when I visited Palimbang.

This past summer, I was given another task: to train the respective computer laboratory managers and IT coordinators of the schools under my area of responsibility. During our previous trainings and seminars, we pay training centers to provide the service. Our partners include UIC–Davao, MSU-IIT, USM-Kabacan, STI and other large universities and colleges all over Mindanao.

This time however, I and my other colleagues assigned in Davao, Zamboanga and Cagayan were given specific instruction to provide the training ourselves. As our boss says, we are the ones assigned in the field so who knows the computer technical adeptness of our recipients better but us. Because of this, we are the ones who know best how to deliver the training according to their skill level. It will also help us develop rapport with them.

The training was titled “2-day Training on Basic Network Administration and Internet Security and Web Mining”.

It’s an added burden for us but we accepted the challenge anyway. After 5 years, I’m going to be an instructor again. I previously taught computer subjects part-time at NDMC, Midsayap when I was still working for the school as a computer laboratory manager before I was accepted at my current job last 2004.

The first batch I conducted was on April 29-30 hosted by Datu Paglas National High School, Datu Paglas, Maguindanao attended by 18 trainees.



The second batch I conducted was on May 5-6 hosted by Notre Dame of Lambayong, Lambayong, Sultan Kudarat attended by 16 trainees.

The third batch I conducted was on May 7-8 hosted by Sen. Ninoy Aquino National High School, Sen. Ninoy Aquino, Sultan Kudarat attended by 8 trainees.

The fourth batch I conducted was on May 12-13 hosted by San Vicente Academy, Cotabato City attended by 16 trainees.

The fifth batch I conducted was on May 14-15 hosted by Camp Siongco National High School, Datu Odin Sinsuat, Maguindanao attended by 20 trainees.

The sixth and final batch I conducted was on May 19-20 hosted by Tacurong National High School, Tacurong City, Sultan Kudarat attended by 15 trainees.

It was a very exhaustive summer for me. I have no companion to help me prepare the training content, the power point presentations, the certificates, the food, the venues, the communication letters for DepEd and the schools as well as the post-activity reports and the liquidation of expenses. Wheew! I never thought I would be able to pull this off. It totally sapped me of my energy.

However, the satisfaction I got from knowing that the teachers have learned something from me was enough to cast away the weariness in me. 😉

    Kung within 80 meters ang house nio sa school, pwede through LAN cable. Kung may wireless router sila, pwede aroud 50 meters. Sympre, kailangan mo magpaalam sa school principal kung papayag or maybe magbabayad ka na lang ng monthly.

    I’m remembering the agreement that I had with a organization here in Davao, but after the multiple slaps in my face (negative criticism) I forgot and urge to back out from teaching people about blogging, as I myself am struggling to get my blogs earn money again. Pero anyways, nice training.

    ark Reply:

    Why the negative criticisms? Iinvite ka nila tapos sisiraan ka? How come?

    Pareho tayo ng situation ngayon. Penalized din ng google ang site ko. Hopefully eh maresolve din ito ASAP at temporary lang.

    The Computer Summer Training 2009 was great. Thank you very much for the untiring efforts. Congratulations also for the job very well done. Marami na namam kaming natutunan. Marami ring nanghinayang na di nakasali sa Training, kaya popular request nila kung pwede may ganito pa rin next summer. Pwede po ba?

    I can’t promise ma’am. Let’s just hope that we will have enough funds to warrant another series of trainings.
