Adarna House, MBHTE-BARMM conduct workshop on developing K-3 learning materials

COTABATO CITY – In partnership with the Adarna House, the Ministry of Basic, Higher and Technical Education (MBHTE) of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (MBHTE-BARMM) conducted Consultative Workshop for the Development of K-3 Teaching Learning Materials on Aug. 30 at the Mallberry Suites Business Hotel in Cagayan de Oro City.

According to Adarna House, the workshop aimed to establish baseline information on the current status of the learning resource management and development system, and an inventory of existing K-3 Supplementary Learning Resources (SLRs) in the BARMM.

It also aimed to gather recommendations for the development of the content guidelines following the MBHTE parameters, and plan ways forward for the conduct of writing and illustration workshops and review of developed materials.

The workshop was attended by Curriculum and Instructions Division (CID) officers; Learning Resources Management and Development System (LRMDS) coordinators; K-3 coordinators; Mother Tongue-Based Multilingual Education (MTB-MLE) coordinators; illustrators, and community leaders from the 11 schools’ divisions in the BARMM.

The Australian Government supported the workshop through the Education Pathways to Peace in Mindanao (Pathways) Program.

Pathways is a nine-year education program that is supported by the Australian Government in partnership with the Government of the Philippines and implemented through the MBHTE-BARMM and other education stakeholders.

The outcomes of the program are 1) to reduce disparity, improve participation, and increase learning outcomes of all boys and girls in the BARMM, particularly those experiencing disadvantage; and 2) to support sustainable positive engagement and collaboration of key actors and stakeholders in providing and supporting conflict sensitive quality basic education services.

Adarna House is engaged in the publication of local literature for children of all ages.
