A Blended Learning Model for Public Senior High Schools in the Division of Laguna

Abstract

This study aimed to design a blended learning model for public senior high schools in the division of Laguna. A descriptive-quantitative research design was considered in the study and utilized the neo-positivism for objectivity and neutrality of the research process. A survey using Mercado’s eLearning readiness assessment tool and eLearning System Readiness Assessment(ELSRA) based on Mckinsey’s 7S were used to collect data from respondents. Pearson r correlation test, percentage, mean, and frequency count were used for analysis. Results showed that the technical specification of eClassroom provided by DepEd Computerization Program satisfied the IT infrastructure standards for eLearning system. The proposed project team was identified with their roles and qualifications to manage the implementation of blended learning. The assessment of student’s eLearning readiness has a computed mean value of 52.17% for technology access, 56.37% for technology skills, and student's attitude towards eLearning was evaluated “Almost Ready”. The assessment of teacher’s eLearning readiness has a computed mean value of 83.86% for technology access, 87.74% for technology skills, and teacher's attitude towards eLearning was evaluated “Almost Ready” for abilities, motivation and time management; and “Completely Ready” for teaching styles and strategies. The schools revealed that 93.33% were ready for administrative support and 83.66% for resource support to eLearning system. The division management officials agreed (68.34%) to the identified 7S that support eLearning implementation. The designed Adefuin&Balba Blended Learning Model is composed of Technology, People, and Process phases supported by K-12 SHS curriculum with continuous improvement process through Monitoring and Evaluation. It is recommended to implement blended learning using the designed model in public senior high schools in the division of Laguna.
