Scientific Tools and Techniques:

Preparing the Future Educators of the 21st


In Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for Special Topic Course




Ma. Diana S. Guieb


With all our hearts, we, the 3rd Year BSEd Math Major would like to extend our

deepest gratitude to the following:

First and foremost, to the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY for everything, especially for

the gift of life;

Ms. Rona F. Barbarona, our beloved guest speaker, for sharing her time and

wisdom to guide us renew our understanding about the scientific tools and techniques

we can use as we become the educators of the 21stcentury ;

Dr. Consorcia S. Tan, our beloved dean, for the firm foundation of unwavering


Mrs. Ma. Diana S. Guieb, for helping us learn and navigating us to the route of


Our dear PROFESSORS, for being the light to guide see the way to become

better educators;

Our FAMILIES and FRIENDS, for being the source of our strength and courage

as we face the hardships of life;

And lastly to the BSED 2nd year MATH Major and 3rd year English major, for

their cooperation and participation on this significant endeavor.

The scientific method is not

just for scientists, it is for everyone. It

attempts to minimize the influence of bias

or prejudice in the experimenter, or even

in a class activity in any particular

subject. It results from personal beliefs,

as well as cultural beliefs, which means

any human filters information based on

his or her own experience. Unfortunately, this filtering process can cause a scientist, or

anyone in the process, to prefer one outcome over another. For someone trying to solve

a problem around the house, succumbing to these kinds of biases is not such a big

deal. But in the scientific community, where results have to be reviewed and duplicated,

bias must be avoided at all costs. (HARRIS 2017)

In this century, we can already avoid the bias by using the scientific tools

effectively and efficiently. We, the future educators, need to get through this by seeking

help and gathering important details to provide us what we need. These scientific tools

are already made, we just need to shift ourselves to this new process and embrace it. At

the same time, scientific techniques need to be transferred from those who have tried it

and have seen its usefulness. So at the end of the day, we can produce 21 st century

skilled learners who have mustered creativity, critical thinking, communication and

collaboration, and live life to the fullest.

The 3-hour seminar workshop for BSED MATH and ENGLISH Majors was held
last May 08, 2017 at the AVR Library, LSPU LB Campus, with Asst. Prof. Rona F.
Barbarona as the guest speaker.

The event featured both the scientific tools and techniques in preparing the
future educators of the 21st century. The workshop outlined the useful functions of
software and multimedia presentation tools as well as the online and available
digital resources.
The Seminar organized by the Third year BSEd Mathematics Major students got
satisfactory reviews from the participants.

Through the efforts of the class,

knowledge and cooperation were
heightened. Information about
scientific tools was discussed
clearly which made a productive
morning for everybody.

General Objective:

At the end of this seminar workshop, the participants will be able to

develop skills and learn techniques on how to use the available scientific tools.

Specific Objectives:

1. Explore the useful operations of a Scientific Calculator every educator can use;
2. Operate the available spreadsheet software to input and compute data using MS
Excel, OpenOffice Calc and LibreOffice Calc
3. Manipulate data simulation and visualization using online resources: Geogebra,
PhET, and Wolfram Alpha
4. Maximize the use of presentation software: MS Powerpoint, Prezi and Keynote to
easily facilitate the class and the lesson at the same time.
5. Rebuild the mind of every aspiring educator to develop their skills by shifting to
the use of tools.

The seminar registration

started as early as 7:30 were the
participants signed their names
and wrote some basic information
about them.

After the participants signed

and got their name tags, ushers
came to lead them to available
seats. They were asked to sit
quietly while waiting for the other
participants and seminar to start.

- She has been teaching in the field of her expertise for 7 years now
- One of her tasks is to analyze and critique the working theses of her
- She has used most of the scientific tools in her career as an
educator; spreadsheet, presentation, data analysis software and
online resources.

As the lecture began, introduction and greetings of the speaker to her listeners
were given. She has put to perspective the great task of every educator in his/her life
The definition of terms to be encountered were first discussed and highlighted
before going to the gist of the discussion. The scientific method was shown to give
bigger perspective of why the seminar workshop was being held.
One by one the speaker had discussed the use of every scientific tool that is
available. Scientific Calculator is used for its basic operation but it has more functions:
statistics data input, linear regression, measure of central tendency, etc. In
Spreadsheet, teachers can explore the different techniques and shortcuts that are
helpful in input and analysis of data (students performance scores). Content standard
to what to put in Powerpoint Presentation was also discussed deeper and elaborated.
The speaker has asked the participants to use their Scientific Calculators and
Laptop as the discussion proceeded with hands on activities. The use of online
resources that can be helpful in facilitating lessons was also advised and
recommended by the speaker.
