The Department of Education has conducted its second Virtual In-Service Training for Teachers from August 30 to September 03, 2021. These In-service trainings are reminders for teachers that our learning never really stops. Hence, it is important that teachers attend these in-service trainings with openness for us to acknowledge that there are still things we are yet to know about. In this time of pandemic, we, the teachers, are still blessed that we are able to attend virtual training on education that would be of aid to us as we face again another year of not having face to face instruction. 


In the second version of the Virtual In-Service Training for teachers, this training focused on capacitating the teachers to use different online learning modalities, including DepEd Learning Management System, DepEd Commons, DepEd TV, and DepEd Radio. DepEd said that the sessions can help educators maximize and handle the property and technology tools in delivering online education and ensure that the platforms will be child-friendly. This VINSET 2.0 has taught teachers how to utilize technology tools and applications to maximize our skills to create more interesting lessons for students.


Thus, we salute all teachers who are willing to learn more for them to be equipped and ready to still rise to the challenges they face in this time of pandemic. We also give our sincerest gratitude to the Department of Education for always making sure that the quality education of our Filipino students will still continue despite the different challenges of life.
