March 29, 2021 – To reach more learners, teachers, and parents, the Department of Education (DepEd) CALABARZON last Friday, March 19, 2021, unveiled Pivot 4A TV to expand the Learning Delivery Modalities (LDMs) in the region.
“Let us embrace innovations in our teaching and learning processes amidst the situation. With the launch of Pivot 4A TV, our learners and teachers in CALABARZON can access more localized educational content that can stir their interest and creativity,” Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones emphasized.
During the virtual launch, Regional Director Wilfredo Cabral shared that Pivot 4A TV is the latest by-product learning platform anchored on the region’s contextualized Basic Education Learning Continuity Plan (BE-LCP), titled Pivot 4A QuBE.
“Sa Pivot 4A TV, gusto natin na mabigyan ng paunang impormasyon at mga gabay ang ating mga guro kung papaano magiging mas maluwag at mas madali para sa kanila na i-deliver ang instructions sa ating mga mga learners,” RD Cabral said.
“Gayundin, binibigyan natin ng pagkakataon ang mga mag-aaral na makita ang ibat-ibang options on how they can really learn in the distance learning,” he added.
Cabral shared that Pivot 4A TV will also serve as a guide for parents to understand the course of action and the different learning competencies in the succeeding quarters.
In its initial implementation, the newly formed platform features key segments, namely, (1) Pivot Gabay – Your Quick Guide to Learning, (2) Pivot Balita – News beyond Learning, (3) Pivot Dokyu – True Stories of Learning, and (4) StraightForwaRD – a monthly segment featuring the RD, together with regional and division heads, sharing the region’s plans in enriching curriculum implementation and practices in their respective areas of concerns.
The region emphasized that its flagship program, Pivot 4A QuBe, paved the way for various contextualized programs and preparations of different schools division offices (SDOs) for distance learning, and eventually, Pivot 4A TV.
Meanwhile, Curriculum and Learning Management Division (CLMD) Chief Job Zape, Jr. highlighted that the region was able to devise and develop valid learning resources known as Pivot materials in the region as one of the accomplishments in the Key Result Areas (KRAs).
“We needed to produce and design materials that are suited to the demand of each of the learners in their respective learning spaces [as we do not want] our stakeholders to feel the burden of the pandemic, or not feel even the hardship in teaching and learning,” CLMD Chief Zape said.
Pivot 4A TV will be aired via SDOs’ channels and local partner TV stations, DepEd CALABARZON’s Official Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/deped.calabarzon/), and on Pivot Calabarzon’s Official YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUP1Ku9gvPcnbteUcI8Rltw).
