DLSAU FARM, which stands for Flexible Alternative Remote Modality of learning, is based on Flexible Learning Modality (FLM), a learning design perspective that is described in the International Journal of Technology and Human Interaction (IGI Global) as being deeply rooted in the needs of the learners, with the main objective of providing them with the highest level of flexibility in the areas of learning content, schedules, access, and learning styles. FLM customizes learning environments—using both technological and non-technological tools—so that they are able to effectively meet these needs.”
With the set-up, students will be able to choose between two learning environments: full online learning or home-based offline learning.
Learners with the appropriate learning tools (desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone) and with strong and stable internet connection shall access learning materials through various available online platforms like Seesaw (Pre-School to Grade 3) and Microsoft Teams (Grade 4 to 10, Senior High School (SHS), Tertiary Education Department (TED), and Graduate School). Previously and currently-used platforms like Google Classrooms, Edmodo, FB/Messenger Chat, Canvas, and the like that suit both students and faculty may be used to further complement the use of Seesaw and Microsoft Teams. Access and accomplishments shall be based on students’ learning pace and will be subject to the system timetable.
Students will be asked to attend scheduled meetings or lectures, where they will be required to “log in” for their attendance or accomplish certain tasks on a predetermined date. Synchronous learning includes:
Students will be allowed to access materials, ask questions, and practice their skills at a time that works best for them. It uses a wide variety of tools and systems to allow the instructor and student to interact at their own convenience. Asynchronous learning includes:
Learners who do not have access to appropriate learning tools (desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone) or are unable to go online due to limited Internet connectivity will be provided with printed learning materials, lesson modules, and/or course packs that will be made available to them twice during the quarter/term.
Learning materials may be picked up at the university by the student’s authorized representative or through an official courier service.
Output of the learning modules/formative assessments may be submitted by the same representative who picked up the materials or through an official courier service—the specifics and mechanisms of which will be communicated separately in the coming weeks.
Teacher training, through the Basic Education Department and Tertiary Education Department In-Service Training programs, including collaboration with other La Salle schools, are already in place and ready for implementation.ASSISTANCE TO STUDENTS AND PARENTS
Orientation programs and assistance mechanisms to students and parents are also being planned out and will be rolled out prior to the opening of classes. These programs were developed to make sure that there is smooth transition and effective implementation of teaching among teachers, students, and especially parents who are now expected to play an important role in the new learning modalities, especially for our young learners.MECHANISM FOR REQUESTING CHANGE IN LEARNING MODES DLSAU FARM Primer.
