We at the University of the Philippines National Institute for Science and Mathematics Education Development (UP NISMED) are currently developing several websites on mathematics and science teaching. AgIMat is one of our newest sites, a public service of UP NISMED’s staff for K-12 science and mathematics teaching. AgIMat stands for Agham (Science) Impormasyon (Information), at Matematika (Mathematics) is a resource dedicated to Filipino teachers.
Some of the materials posted on the site have been used in classes or in professional development for teachers. The materials are written in English, but some are written in Filipino. We are also planning to have materials in other native languages in the future.
We also have a new blog about Lesson Study in the Philippines. The site currently contains news about our Institute’s Lesson Study efforts. UP NISMED has been doing Lesson Study since 2006 and it has involved 10 schools from Metro Manila and nearby provinces. One of our outputs is a book on Lesson Study that we are currently writing. Hopefully it will be available next year at the UP NISMED bookstore.
In addition, I have also announced last week that have a new website for the GeoGebra Institute of Metro Manila (GIMM). We at the GIMM is looking for Filipino contributors. You may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
The GIMM and the Lesson Study sites will have their official URLs soon.
