Decoding Emoji Message Activity | Reading and Writing

I had my classroom observation last week. The preparation was short as I checked the test papers over the weekend as we need to pass grades for the upcoming Card Day. Honestly, I have my sleepless nights since the holiday break as I attended events and allotted time in creating test items. I was yawning multiple times Sunday night as I rushed my materials. Why I needed to rush? There was scheduled power interruption the next day and it caused me “panic”. I printed some of my materials as I cannot use slide presentation. A teacher is always prepared. There should be Plan B. I slept six minutes before midnight for my big day.

 

I was slated to be observed in my Reading and Writing class anew. That was my third time and I had my Grade 11- GAS again in the observation. The nervousness was there. Well, we cannot remove that as human beings. My topic was hypertext and intertextuality. I have taught last year and I can say that it is not an easy thing. I squeezed my mind to come out with activities that will entice my learners to be zealous in participating in the discussion.

 

For hypertext (which is a non- linear way of text), I devised Emoji Message Decoding Activity. I got the inspiration from the random FB posts which they use emoji in representing a syllable or the word itself. I read posts written in Filipino like the bag emoji placed before sak to form the word bagsak which is translated as failed in English.

 

Steps:

 

  1. Prepare statements first. Doing this will make the process faster as you do not need to think over what to type during the process. There is a tendency that you will have revisions that can consume your time. The statements could be about you, students, or the subject matter. You can also use song lyrics for early part of the activity for learners’ familiarization.
  2. Log in to your Facebook account. I had my mobile access for easy selection of emoji.
  3. Type the statement in the What’s on your mind portion. I advise to encode the statement wholly first then you may integrate emoji by replacing parts of the sentence.
  4. In using emoji, be sure you know the equivalent message. In my case, I had used Smile song and little information about myself for the easy and average rounds. The set of emoji were almost used to represent words. For the last round, I tested their critical thinking skills as the emoji used should be interpreted in context.
  5. Review first before doing a screenshot.
  6. You may put the saved image in Word and PowerPoint or any slide maker. I had my tarpapel form that period because of power interruption.

 

The idea of making this just popped out as I attended a birthday celebration of my sister’s former high school classmate. We were waiting for the program to commence when I used my phone to kill waiting time.

 

I used this for my motivation. I grouped the learners by three. The learners had their adrenaline rush as they decode the messages. It is evident as they murmured the ideas they had about those messages. They got the lyrics correctly. They encountered errors in the last two statements. They enjoyed the mind- boggling game.

 

I asked them about their experiences in the activity. They said it was tricky. Yes, it is. I said that I need to trigger their higher order thinking skills. I was happy I did as they decoded most of the words with emoji.

 

I could conclude that the game was effective. It touched hypertext as we are now fond of interpreting information in a non- linear way. However, please tell your students to please use emoji wisely and observe correct writing. Furthermore, explain that it was only pure game to test their playful minds.

Statement on preventing and addressing bullying incidents in schools

PASIG CITY, December 24, 2018 – The Department of Education (DepEd) acknowledges the authority of schools to impose disciplinary sanctions, when necessary and consistent with law and DepEd’s policies, in addressing cases of child abuse, violence, exploitation, discrimination and bullying.

The Department urges schools to conduct a thorough and complete review of their operations manuals, handbooks, regulations, and protocols in preventing and addressing cases of bullying. Private schools are enjoined to align their anti-bullying policies with that of the Department, as mandated by law, specifically Republic Act 10627 or the Anti-Bullying Act of 2013 and its Implementing Rules and Regulations, issued through DepEd Order No. 55, s. 2013 and reiterated in DepEd Memorandum No. 5, s. 2017 for strict implementation. The Department further underscores compliance to the Child Protection Policy, issued through DepEd Order No. 40, s. 2012, which requires all public and private kindergarten, elementary, and secondary schools to create their own Child Protection Committee (CPC) to ensure that cases and instances of abuse and bullying are closely monitored and expeditiously investigated.

Let this be a wakeup call for everyone who believes in education and the protection of learners to take bullying in all its forms seriously. Bullying is a societal issue that demands the cooperation of teachers, parents, school administrators, community members, and even the media to instill among learners the culture of peace and the value of respect for one another.

DepEd hopes for strengthened coordination, consultation, and exchange of experiences between and among the public and private schools to address all forms of violence against children. Most importantly, the Department reiterates the role of peers and teachers in stepping in and anticipating possible incidents of violence against children, and in taking action as quickly as possible before matters get out of hand.

Only then can we truly nurture the learners and provide them a genuinely child-friendly, gender-sensitive, safe, and motivating environment.

END
