INNOTECH HOLDS REGIONAL FORUM ON ADM BEST PRACTICES
A four-day Regional Forum on Best Practices of Secondary Level Alternative Delivery Modes (ADMs) in SEAMEO member countries is currently being held in SEAMEO INNOTECH. The forum started last September 25 and will run for four days. Eleven (11) experts/practitioners of Secondary ADMs from SEAMEO member countries are participating in the forum. The forum’s overall objective is to document the best practices in the implementation of secondary level ADMs in the SEAMEO-member countries, and start developing a Regional Secondary ADM Model Concept.
Activities in the forum include presentation of country papers showing different ADM models which will serve as inputs to the development of the regional model; a workshop, for the participants to brainstorm for ideas needed in developing the regional model; and two school visits — Makati City High School, and Gaya-Gaya Elementary School (IMPACT School).
ADM is proposed to be one of the ways to address problems regarding school dropouts, and to expand access to secondary education.
