Welcome Message from the EARCOS Executive Director Dear ETC Delegates: Welcome to the EARCOS Teachers’ Conference (ETC) 2016 at the International School of Manila (ISM). We are happy to be back in a school for this very special strand conference. David Toze, Sam Cook, Michele Mapua, and the entire ISM team have been great to collaborate with. Dick Robbins and the Brent School of Manila have also assisted with bussing arrangements and we appreciate this assistance. This ETC offers three excellent keynote presenters Mike Kuczala, Mark Jenkins, and Doug Goodkin. We have seven pre-conferences including AP and WASC. Also, delegates have 113 workshop sessions to choose from and they are geared to meet the diverse needs of our teachers. In addition, our job-alike sessions will provide an opportunity for teachers to meet with their colleagues, who work in similar content areas. ETC will also provide 70 teacher-presented workshop sessions, which are always practical and valuable. (THE MOST EVER PRACTITIONER OFFERINGS) Please support your fellow teachers and try to attend as many of these as possible. Our ETC teacher advisory group has chosen Operation Smile again this year as the charity that ETC will support. It is such a worthy organization. Thanks to all our ETC teacher representatives who have spent many hours assisting their teachers with workshops, registration for the conference, and hotel and transportation arrangements. Without their dedication it would be impossible to host our conference the way we do. Thanks to our EARCOS staff members who have worked endless hours to assist with the many details and logistics. The contributions of Elaine, Vitz, Ver, Edzel, and Robert have been admirable and their attention to the many details of our conference is commendable. Our assistant director Joe Petrone and Bill Oldread have also been invaluable during the planning process. Finally, it is always my hope that our delegates make new contacts, be challenged by our presenters, renew friendships, and enjoy our hospitality.Visit our exhibitors and let them know that we appreciate their sponsorship that helps us provide the best professional development possible. I’m proud and happy to be the director of this wonderful organization. Dick Krajczar and the EARCOS team.

The National Museum The National Museum is also an extraordinary place to visit in Manila. Juan Luna’s famous and stunning masterpiece, The Spoliarium will greet you at the entrance. The painting is superb, huge and enigmatic. Of course, that’s only a warm up. Walking through the museum, you’ll see more of Philippines’ archives and treasures. Manila Bay or Baywalk In line with the Manila Ocean Park and the US embassy, is the Manila Bay, usually called as Baywalk, too. Perfect venue to chill and watch the ships, yachts and the sunset. Philippines Major Shopping Centers These super-regional supermalls each have over a hundred local and international stores and are anchored by at least one department store and supermarket or hypermarket.They are also the largest malls in Metro Manila which feature not just stores but also attractions: movie theaters, rides, skating rinks, bowling alleys and other recreational facilities. These malls serve not only the Metro Manila and Greater Manila Area residents, but also local and foreign tourists. 1. Alabang Town Center - Alabang–Zapote Road, Ayala Alabang, Muntinlupa 2. Festival Alabang - Corporate Avenue corner Civic Drive, Filinvest City, Alabang, Muntinlupa 3. Greenbelt - Makati Avenue, Ayala Center, Makati 4. Greenhills Shopping Center - Ortigas Avenue, North Western Street, San Juan, Metro Manila 5. Market! Market! - 26th Street corner C-5 Road, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig 6. Power Plant Mall - Rockwell Drive corner Estrella Street, Rockwell Center, Makati 7. SM Aura Premier - C-5 Road corner McKinley Parkway, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig 8. SM Mall of Asia - Central Business Park, Bay Boulevard, Bay City, Pasay 9. SM Megamall - EDSA corner Julia Vargas Avenue, Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong 10. TriNoma - EDSA corner North Avenue, Quezon City About Manila Manila is the capital of the Philippines. It is located in the northern island of Luzon close to Quezon City. Quezon City was once the capital, from 1948 to 1976, and is actually the most populous city. Manila is the second most populated city with a population of 1,652,171. It is just under 15 square miles, making it one of the most densely populated cities in the Philippines and in the world. It is where the seat of the Philippine government is located. History The earliest known records of the city date back to the tenth century. It was known as the Pearl of the Orient because of its location in the Pacific as an important trade route. The city suffered devastating destruction during World War II but has since been rebuilt. It is now the center of education, headquarters to the World Health Organization Regional Office for the Western Pacific, and attracts more than one million tourists each year. Famous Beaches 1. El Nido, Palawan - If Palawan is indeed “the last frontier” of the Philippines, as it’s been dubbed, the coastal town of El Nido is the gateway to wild adventure. Sure, it’s got powder-fine beaches and gin-clear waters. But the views are what really sell the place. 2. Boracay, Aklan - White Beach is the place most frequently associated with Boracay, the most popular holiday destination in the Philippines. 3. Palaui Island, Cagayan Valley - This isolated island is a natural secret -- only the brave and persevering bother to visit. Glorious white sands surrounded by volcanic rocks on one side kiss blue-green waters on the other. 4. Panglao, Bohol - Once a sleepy island, Panglao is being roused by travelers in search of gorgeous beaches. Options include dolphin watching, whale spotting, diving with barracudas, jackfish, sea snakes and brilliant coral formations. 5. Bantayan Island, Cebu - Bantayan has remained relatively untouched by modern life, save for a smattering of foreigners who have taken up residence, sucked in by the island’s white sands, aqua-colored waters and redgold sunsets. 6. Caramoan, Camarines Sur - Named after the local sea turtle, Caramoan is as scenic as it is secluded. Stretches of white sand run between huge boulders and rock formations. Scuba divers, island hoppers and beach bums all converge here. Complementing the beaches are caves, waterfalls, freshwater pools, underground streams and lagoons.

There are also taxis, motorcycles with sidecars known as tricycles, and the most popular form of transportation known as jeepneys, which are jeep-like public utility vehicles. They have their roots from World War II with the surplus jeeps that were sold to the Philippines who painted them in bright native colors and began using them and producing them for family and tourist transportation. Places to visit in the Philippines The Rizal Park Rizal Park or Luneta Park is the most famous landmark in Manila. The country’s national hero and genius, Jose Rizal’s monument stands in the facade of the park across the Roxas Boulevard and the Manila Bay. Many tourists and locals go there every day to have some photos taken in the famous statue and park. No entrance fee in the park so chillax. Fort Santiago and Intramuros One of many favorite places to visit in Manila is Fort Santiago, also part of the famous Intramuros. If you love visiting historical places and seeing vintage stuffs, you’ll surely enjoy this place. Seeing Fort Santiago mirrors the life and culture of the country during the Spanish times and the sixteenth century. There are also Kalesa or carriage around the area in case you want to tour around riding it. Only 250 for 30 minutes 05

PRECONFERENCES WEDNESDAY | MARCH 30, 2016 08:30 - 16:30 ROOM DAVID GLEASON Counseling Level 1 - HS Faculty Lounge 1093 Neuropsychological Testing: Demystifying The Data Many educators struggle to grasp the interpretive value of comprehensive assessments.

TED AND CAROLYN TEMERTZOGLOU Physical Education Level 2 - MS Gym Building Physically Literate 21st Century Learners This hands-on session explores physical literacy and its importance in developing 21st century learners, the positive impact of physical activity on student learning and strategies for promoting student well-being.

Content that will be explored connecting research to practice include: physical literacy; long term athlete development program; quality daily physical education programming; inquiry-based learning; differentiated instruction; and quality assessment practices. ALEC COUROS Technology Level 2 - MS Media Center The Promise of Open & Connected Learning The social web has brought with it both challenges and opportunities for our institutions. MOOCs have created new possibilities for digital learning, and social networking tools are connecting our youth to new and once impossible global audiences; indeed, the pedagogical possibilities of Web 2.0 tools seem limitless. Yet our education systems have been reluctant to adapt to the globally connected world in which our students live, and there continues to be a deep disconnect between this emerging digital world and common classroom practice. In this presentation, Dr. Couros will describe ways in which we might take up the affordances of the myriad technologies and social networks available to us in order to support student learning. As well, he will help participants to examine how we might help students develop their own personal learning networks in order to navigate possibilities for identity formation and voice. Finally, Dr. Couros will discuss ways in which we might support students.
