APSA President Dr. Clemeña talks on 21st Century Learners

At this time and age, many changes have occurred in our world, including technological advances that have shaped the course of our relentless thirst for knowledge. Many years ago, students relied on encyclopedias, almanacs, and everything they could find in the school library. Sheets of Manila paper were utilized in all ways possible for subject presentations. Teachers explained lessons with their entire prowess through writing and verbal explanations. Personal computers and the internet were not a big thing until the late 90’s. Powerpoint presentations were then introduced to replace writing on Manila paper, blackboard, or whiteboard. Google took charge of all the inquiries the world could ever have… And so on. Such transformation of the methods of acquiring information has greatly affected the educational setting, particularly the learning styles of students in every school around the globe.
