Masajo (2017) states in herresearch that “This learning environment in the Philippines is probably similarto that of most developing nations. Unlike developed countries, students areprovided with adequate, if not very sufficient and varied, instructionaldevices for classroom use to accommodate students with diverse learning styles.”It was stated in the books, particularly in the 2003 TIMSS report (IEA 2004),it was revealed that students, which includes 31% Australian, 17% Japanese, and24% in American, have over two hundred books at home comparing to the 3% findingsin the Philippines. Eighty-three percent (83%) of the Australian students, 55% Japanesestudents, and 79% American students make use of computers at home and in schoolto strengthen schoolroom orders, compared to the 11% in the Philippines, in a research thathas of 39% as international average. Because of wider benefits and higher reparations,it is no doubt that industrialized countries don’t have a hard time in lookingfor potentially capable workers.
Mehrotra & Buckland (1998) stated that “Filipinoteachers’ salary can hardly compare to that in most developed countries.” Asproof, the 1998 UNICEF data specify Philippine based teachers obtain only anannual income of $2,066, while the equivalents in Japan, $28,770, and in theUS, $24,780. “Partaking-out consideration of the standard of living in thesecountries, the average teacher’s salary in the Philippines can hardly comparewith that of leadership in developed nations.” (The Conditions of SecondarySchool Physics, n.
d.) In the past times, that constructivist ideas were not extensivelyacknowledged because of the discernment that plays were seen as purposeless andpossess insignificance. However, Jean Piaget was contradicted this idea with thesecustomary assessments. (Chapter 2 – Review of Related Literature, n.d.) Piagetsaw productions a vital and essential part of a learner’s intellectual progressand delivered scientific proof for his observations. (Wikipedia, 2017) Currently,constructivist theories are evidently seen in the informal teaching program thesociety has. In this theory, people are stimulated to discover an assembly of genuinelyaccepted history samples, to practice some scientific abilities and create innovationsfor themselves.
(Chapter 2 – Review of Related Literature, n.d.) Educationalreforms are necessarily done to keep up with the pace of the dynamic society wehave and the heart of learning can also be seen at our environment. Upon rereadingthe research literature on the effects of query education on student accomplishments,it is important to focus on three correlated areas: instructional materials,instructional strategies and professional development to formulate educators touse inquiry-dependent materials and/or approaches.
