Dynamic Learning Program

Dynamic Learning Program, “Learning by doing” and ” Road map and a compass for learning”.

Christopher Bernido and his wife, Ma. Victoria Carpio-Bernido introduced a cost effective method of teaching science and non-science project called the Dynamic Learning program (DLP) in 2002. Their DLP learning innovation earned for the couple the highly 2010 Ramon Magsaysay Awards, Asia’s equivalent of the Nobel Prize.

The Dynamic Learning Program works on the principle of “learning is by doing”, it is student-centered, it’s a system of teaching that focuses on student activity rather than on traditional classroom lectures. The set-up is 70% student activity–30% lecture/discussion, and usually national experts do the majority of the lectures via video. The students learn independently, because each activity is provided with a clear, learning target.

The student will try to understand the lesson on their own by reading the concept notes and by doing the exercises before the lesson is discussed and explained. Some examples of student activities are solving exercises, answering guide questions and copying notes. Each student keeps a portfolio of his work as a representative documentation of his schoolwork. This would later on serve as his reviewer and proof also of his performance in school.

For school year 2010-11, Arellano University forged a Memorandum of Agreement with the Bernidos to implement the DLP in all high school department and some of their colleges of the university.

As a college teacher for the past 5 years I am beset with student poor performance in English proficiency, spelling, poor grasp of vocabulary and comprehension. With this innovative strategy in the classroom, I hope this will enhance and develop students’ potentials in writing, spelling, comprehension, and reading. In the end, my students will be able to master the fundamentals and basic concepts of the subject matter.

As what I have experienced about the DLP, it is very tiring and grueling especially for SSG Officers. We SSG Officers have a lot to do in governing our school. Plus the responsibility that we take in preparing for programs such as Nutrition Month, Buwan ng Wika, etc. We really find it very difficult to cope up because we have to do the activities we missed. well, there’s nothing wrong with doing it, but writing all of it from the activity title until the lat word of our answers? Where are we going to find enough time? The teachers suggest we do it in our home after school, what happens to “No Activities Should Be Done at Home”. It’s really tiring. I hear my classmates complaining that they really get tired and feel the full effect at home after school! And now we have home works to cope up with our missed activities. This is not right … Specially now that we have review classes on Saturdays. I have responsibilities during Sunday!- A lot of students have! Our time for leisure has been taken away! I feel like a slave. How do you expect students to get more intelligent if we have too much stress on us huh? I feel like writing a whole book without getting paid!
