February 4, 2016 - FIFTY-ONE third year students from the College of Teacher Education had an actual application of their lesson on Planning, Implementing and Evaluating Study Trips as part of their course in Educational Technology, one of their professional subjects. The activity aimed to supplement the fundamental concepts and skills that they learn in the class so they may respond to the fast-changing trends in education, particularly in the use of technological resources as part of their future responsibilities as basic education teachers.

The students who were accompanied by their instructor Mr. Eduard Mancilla and two other HED faculty members, Mr. Tom Alvarez and Mrs. Jennifer Baldovino, visited Adamson University (AdU) in Manila. Adamson is a school equipped with the latest technological advancements and facilities and is also known for promoting Vincentian values. The students and teachers were welcomed by Dr. Servillano T. Marquez Jr., Dean of the College of Education and Liberal Arts together with the Adamsonian student-leaders who facilitated the campus tour. The group had an orientation on AdU’s IT, library, and E-learning services. A free tour to the Adamson museum highlighted the group’s first itinerary.

After their visit to Adamson University, the class headed to the Mind Museum in Taguig. The Mind Museum is the Philippines' first world-class science museum. It is a project of Bonifacio Art Foundation, Inc. (BAFI), a non-profit organization. They had the first-hand experience on over 250 hands-on minds-on interactive exhibits inside and outside the 12,000 square meters "green" building. The museum is divided into five main galleries which include: Atom Gallery (the strange world of the very small), Life Gallery (the exuberance of life), Earth Gallery (nature across the breadth of time), Universe Gallery (vastness of the universe) and Technology Gallery (how we live). Each exhibit is designed to be discovered on its own, but there were employees called “the Mind Movers” who are available to give guided tours of the centerpieces of each gallery. The group left the museum bringing with them the direct experience of making science alive!

The group then proceeded to Art in Island, a popular museum in Cubao which aims to help people appreciate art by letting them become part of it. Art in Island, considered the biggest 3D Museum in Asia as far as number of 3D paintings is concerned, was founded by Yun Jae Kyoung and his Korean partners, with 14 3D artists from Korea working on all the paintings. The museum features over 100 unique three-dimensional paintings that encourage people to pose in front of them. Each artwork is painted in such a way that, when photographed from specific angles, they create optical illusions to make a person appear part of the picture. The overall concept aims to encourage those who visit the museum to interact with the paintings, which is often prohibited in regular art museums.

The students and teachers considered themselves fortunate to experience such fun-filled interactive learning experience which could not be achieved within the four walls of their classroom. In just one whole day, the students gained real-world experience plus the chance to travel with their friends and classmates, a fun-learning experience which they will treasure for a lifetime. At the end of the day, the group realized that field trip, educational tour, “lakbay-aral”, or study trip as others may call it, is truly beneficial to students’ learning if planned and implemented carefully.
