The Samahang Pisika ng Pilipinas (SPP) co-organized the Basic Education Science breakout session of Rex Education’s 2023 Annual Educators’ Congress (AECON 2023) with the theme, Learning Recovery to Learning Resilience, held last 26–27 January 2023. The breakout session, entitled Physics Next: Topics, Strategies, and Philippine Context, consisted of a mini-series covering a wide range of insightful ideas for teaching Physics. Jose Perico Esguerra of the University of the Philippines Diliman, discussed Topics at the Interface of Space, Astronomy, and Physics. He showed how space, astronomy, and physics expand to today’s relatable topics.

In the second talk Rhenish Simon of De La Salle University discussed Flipping the Classroom, where he shared how to flip classroom activities in a time of reduced in-person class interactions.

In the last talk, Giovanni Malapit of the University of the Philippines Baguio talked about Localizing Physics, where he presented his experience using local languages in teaching Physics.

AECON 2023 promotes the Department of Education’s Basic Education Development Plan (BEDP) 2030 centered on the following priority development areas of this year’s event:
• Pivoting to quality, ensuring that all learners attain learning standards in every key stage in the K to 12 program;
• Empowering learners to be resilient and to acquire life skills; and 
• Strengthening the promotion of the overall well-being of learners in a positive learning environment where learners exercise their rights and experience joy while being aware of their responsibilities as individuals and as members of society.

The small coastal town of Jagna in the island province of Bohol is situated at the northern part of Bohol Sea which has been considered by some marine biologists as the center of the center of biodiversity. About 200 km from the eastern edge of Bohol Sea is the Philippine Deep (depth ~10.5 km), and roughly 250 km from the western edge is the Tubbataha Reefs (UNESCO World Heritage Site). Bohol island is known for its white beaches, snorkeling and diving sites, the Tarsier, Chocolate Hills, scenic rivers, as well as its rich cultural and historical heritage. The town of Jagna has a port which connects it to several neighboring provinces by sea. Jagna is 74 km (1.5 hrs drive) from Panglao International Airport in Bohol. There are several direct daily flights from Manila to Panglao, and ferries from Cebu to Tagbilaran (63 km from Jagna). Manila and Cebu are international gateway cities.

The Samahang Pisika ng Pilipinas (SPP) co-organized the Basic Education Science breakout session of Rex Education’s 2023 Annual Educators’ Congress (AECON 2023) with the theme, Learning Recovery to Learning Resilience, held last 26–27 January 2023. The breakout session, entitled Physics Next: Topics, Strategies, and Philippine Context, consisted of a mini-series covering a wide range of insightful ideas for teaching Physics. Jose Perico Esguerra of the University of the Philippines Diliman, discussed Topics at the Interface of Space, Astronomy, and Physics. He showed how space, astronomy, and physics expand to today’s relatable topics.

In the second talk Rhenish Simon of De La Salle University discussed Flipping the Classroom, where he shared how to flip classroom activities in a time of reduced in-person class interactions.

In the last talk, Giovanni Malapit of the University of the Philippines Baguio talked about Localizing Physics, where he presented his experience using local languages in teaching Physics.

AECON 2023 promotes the Department of Education’s Basic Education Development Plan (BEDP) 2030 centered on the following priority development areas of this year’s event:
• Pivoting to quality, ensuring that all learners attain learning standards in every key stage in the K to 12 program;
• Empowering learners to be resilient and to acquire life skills; and 
• Strengthening the promotion of the overall well-being of learners in a positive learning environment where learners exercise their rights and experience joy while being aware of their responsibilities as individuals and as members of society.

The breakout session was hosted by SPP National Council members Johnrob Bantang, Lean Dasallas, and Ranzivelle Marianne Roxas-Villanueva. Rex Education provided free registration to 300 SPP members.  

SPP is looking for qualified applicants to be the SPP Administrative Staff (Full TIme). The SPP Administrative Staff aids in managing, operating, and maintaining the Samahan.
