The Learning Action Cell as a K to 12 Basic Education


Program School-Based Continuing Professional
Development StraACtegy for the Improvement of Teaching
and Learning
I. RATIONALE
In line with the implementation of Republic Act No. 10533, or the
Enhanced Basic Education Act of 2013, the Department of Education
(DepEd) issues the policy on The Learning Action Cell (LAC) as a K to
12 Basic Education Program School-Based Continuing Professional
Development Strategy for the Improvement of Teaching and
Learning( DepEd Order No. 35, s. 2016.
This advocacy of the Department of Education implies that every
teacher should be properly guided and equipped with the know-how of
teaching and learning process through revisiting and reviewing some
areas or concerned in performing the duties and responsibilities of an
effective and efficient teacher.
School Learning Action Cell, commonly known as LAC is an activity held
in every school to facilitate learning from the resource speakers from
the community, school head or from peer to peer mentoring. It is a
holistic mission of today that through trainings and seminars, teachers
craft as facilitators of learning in school becomes more prolific to
improve every leaners knowledge, skills and attitudes for them to be
globally competitive.
There are so many topics to be discussed that is worth interesting.
Revisiting of the Code of Ethics for Professional Teachers in the
Philippines is really in time to review ourselves on the proper conduct
of the teachers. It also emphasizes the teachers relationship with the
state, with the community, learners, higher authorities, parents and
business.
A discussion on Learning Disabilities and Its Causes is very vital for
every teacher. In this topic, teachers can identify the learning
difficulties in children and know the causes of learning difficulties. So
much so, teachers can gain knowledge through understanding and
helping the pupils with learning difficulties.
The child is said to be the center in the educational process. They are
our main concern in delivering effective instruction for quality
outcomes. It is therefore, the main task of the school agents is to
protect the children from any form of discrimination and take positive
action to promote their rights. Ensuring responsibilities of parents and
the extended family to provide guidance for the child which
appropriate to her or his evolving capacities should also be ensured by
the teacher. Ensuring the children and young people are respected,
given the chance to develop and enjoy security, and allowed them to
participate would also be a good idea to discuss during a LAC session.

Howard Gardner of Harvard has identified seven distinct intelligences.


This theory has emerged from recent cognitive research and
"documents the extent to which students possess different kinds of
minds and therefore learn, remember, perform, and understand in
different ways," according to Gardner (1991). According to this theory,
"we are all able to know the world through language, logicalmathematical analysis, spatial representation, musical thinking, the
use of the body to solve problems or to make things, an understanding
of other individuals, and an understanding of ourselves. Where
individuals differ is in the strength of these intelligences - the so-called
profile of intelligences -and in the ways in which such intelligences are
invoked and combined to carry out different tasks, solve diverse
problems, and progress in various domains."
Including different Learning Styles and Multiple Intelligence is very
important during SLAC. Teachers were given the chance to identify and
describe different learning styles and know more about multiple
intelligence. Likewise, they must ensure that pupils possess different
kinds of minds and learn, remember, perform, and understand in
different ways.
Moreover, challenging an educational system that assumes that
everyone can learn the same materials in the same way that a
uniform, universal measure suffices to test pupils learning.
These LAC will eventually prepare our teachers for the age of
globalization. Their attendance to these seminars will help create an
effective learning environment, improve teaching-learning situations,
keep updated on modern instructional devices and inspire them to
become better teachers in the modern world. Since the department is
offering free trainings and seminars, teachers must grab this
opportunity for self- improvement.
