Nassreena Sampaco-Baddiri (Country Director, IPA Philippines) and Karisha Cruz (Policy Associate, IPA Philippines) led the presentation of the key results on access to technology, experience with using technology, remote teaching skills, plans for remote education, and teacher well-being. In support of the learning continuity plan of the Department, the study aims to determine the current capacities of teachers as well as assess the needs of teaching personnel in delivering effective remote instruction to DepEd learners. The first round of the online survey was conducted on August 19-28, prior to the opening of classes in basic education. The results of the survey would inform DepEd’s learning continuity plans and strategies on how to support teachers in distance learning this school year. The event was hosted by the Department of Education Policy Research and Development Division and attended by the Undersecretary for Planning Service and Field Operations, Directors of various bureaus and divisions of the Department, and DepEd central staff. For the next phase of the study, the team will be conducting qualitative interviews to gather more in-depth insights from teachers, phone surveys, and a second round of online surveys to understand the current capacities and needs of teachers now that classes in basic education schools have started.
