There is a need for new pedagogical
perspectives given the global realities:
 A new generation of learners whose brains
are wired differently.
 Information now readily accessible to
learners (internet, cell phones, etc.)
 New results from Neuroscience
 An emerging worldwide lack of qualified
teachers in the STEM disciplines.
 Political pressure of international
assessments

TRADITIONAL TEACHER-CENTERED METHODS:
• Generally boil down to
lecture style
• Foster passive learning
• Learning too dependent
on abilities of the
teacher
• Unprepared teachers
indulge in homilies
and irrelevant stories.
Realization:
Lack of :
• Qualified teachers
• Textbooks
• Lab equipment
are not core problems.
In a highly competitive globalized
21st century, focusing on these may be a
needless use of time and resources that
could be better spent elsewhere.

Bridging scientific research
and the classroom
The CVIF Dynamic Learning Program
(DLP)
(Implemented since 2002)
The CVIF Dynamic Learning
Program (DLP) applies a synthesis of
classical and modern pedagogical
theories adapted to foster the highest
level of learning, creativity, and
productivity for a wide spectrum of
students.
The CVIF DLP Components
Parallel Learning Groups (Modified Aronson
Jigsaw Strategy)
Activity-based Multi-domain Learning
In-school Comprehensive Student Portfolio
(instead of notebooks)
Strategic Study / Rest Periods
Integrated Spiritual-Cultural Formation and
Nationhood

New mindsets required
For Teachers:
The duty of a teacher is not to teach,
but to enable students to learn.
for Students and Their Families:
Students learn “how to learn”
independently.

For all subjects, there is no introductory
lecture before CVIF students do the
learning activities (questions, problems,
etc.).
Lectures and class discussion are done
only about 1/4 of the time (the rest
being allotted for written activities).
Writing the Activities activates both
the psychomotor and visual faculties
of the brain.
• “Neurons that fire together are wired
together.”
• “Neurons that fire out of sync, lose their link.”

No-homework
policy
Advise from Health Experts:
The more profound reason for the
Strategic Study and Rest is . . .
to facilitate reflection,
deeper understanding, and
processing of concepts
learned during the day.
Central Visayan Institute Foundation, Jagna, Bohol, November 2006
Measures of outcomes
• The number of students who
manifest learning through
competency-based standardized
exams.
• The depth of learning manifested by
students.
Input factors
 Jagna is a fourth class municipality
 ~ 95% of freshmen come from public elementary
schools. (The CVIF has no elementary.)
 Liberal admission policy (All applicants passed
the entrance exam for several years.)
 Current tuition is P 8,000 per student per year.

2010 National Career Assessment Examination
(NCAE)
3 students got a percentile rank of 99+ %
5 students got a percentile rank of 99 %
4 students got a percentile rank of 98 %
Etc…
45.3 % of the CVIF seniors belong to the
top 10 % nationwide
( or 48 students out of 106 seniors got a percentile rank
of 90 and above.)

What may be remarkable is that:
• The CVIF students have lectures and discussion
only 1/4, or even 1/5 of the time (typically
equivalent to one period a week, the rest being
allotted for written activities);
• They have no homework throughout their 4
years in high school;
• The portfolios and all activities cannot be
brought home (returned to the students at the
end of the year).

Rather than
teacher-induced learning,
we propose
process-induced learning
as a new paradigm.

Normal approach
Question:
Can students learn essential physics topics
effectively even if their teacher has little
or no background in physics?
Answer:
Yes, but it would require technology
and the appropriate strategy.
