JASMS Manila Teacher Receives APCoRE Award

Ms. Regine Dela Cruz, a teacher from PWU JASMS Manila High School received the Best Paper Award on the recently concluded 2019 APCORE Convention and International Conference held last September 18-20, 2019 at the Hotel Jen, Pasay City with her paper entitled “Systems Thinking in Biology: Effects on Student’s Higher-Order Thinking Skills”.

The paper she presented focuses on the pioneer study on the application of Systems Thinking for the Basic Education in the Philippines, specifically in the Senior High School. It investigated on how perception of conceptual connections through the utilization of Causal-Loop Diagrams (CLDs) and Behaviour-over-Time-Graphs (BOTGs) affected students’ conceptual understanding, particularly the development of Higher-Order Thinking Skills (HOTS).
