"All of our national problems, from international competitiveness to improving our standard of living to the future of our children, ultimately rest on one important word: education....
Through the history of civilization, the concept of education has remained stable. Colors fade, temples crumble, empires fall, but education endures. Societies that succeed respect their teachers, and the teachers respect themselves." - HARRY WONG-
It is the people who make the country great. In every country, brave compassionate people of action must be willing to assume the mantle of leadership and face the challenges to education, environment and human rights.
We in the Pinoy Teachers Network accept these challenges. Our examples can make a difference. Our strong moral stance can give courage to the many who may feel weak amidst the negativity happening to our mother country and the tragedy happening to the world. Every Pinoy teacher is not going to be alone anymore. The Pinoy Teachers Network family is fast growing far and wide, reaching every island in our country and every corner of the world.
This is a call to action to everyone. Help us disseminate our presence in the cyberspace. Pass it on.
PINOY TEACHERS NETWORK: We are professional Filipino Educators. We are going to inspire, be proactive, give hope and go the extra mile. We believe that these are the values a nation needs from the leadership of its professional educators.
WE CAN DO IT!
“Podcasting” refers to any software and hardware combination that permits automatic downloading of audio files to an MP3 player for listening at the user’s convenience. Podcasting allows education to become more portable than ever before, giving educators another way to meet today’s students where they live and learn—on the Internet and on audio players.

I couldn’t contain my happiness, so pardon me if I appear to be excited about this, haha. I experimented with podcast last night; and guess what…our first PODCASTING is now up in our Filipino Teachers’ community blog. I am also trying to experiment on how to integrate inside my classroom this new tech revolution that’s sweeping the internet at the moment.
