To catch up with a rapidly changing educational landscape, teachers are embracing new roles as innovators and designers of learning environment.
This is the idea behind “InnoBox” or Innovation in a Box, a nationwide search for the most innovative teaching and learning resources (TLR) which can be used in teaching both science and mathematics.
The competition, organized by the Department of Science and Technology – Science Education Institute (DOST-SEI), is open to all public and private elementary and secondary school teachers who are currently teaching science and/or mathematics. It aims to encourage teachers to be innovative, creative, and practical in teaching science and math concepts to improve students’ performance in the subjects.
