On 27 November 2018, Our Lady of Fatima University’s Basic Education Department (OLFU BED) actively participated as the premier exhibitor in the 14th Asia Pacific Future Education Forum Exhibit held at Conrad Manila, where they presented the first ever Basic Education Student Exchange Program in South Korea.
An initiative of the University and its international partner schools, the Exchange Program spanned 10 days as it executed a foster family system.
At the exhibit, the Fatima students impressed local and international educators and policy makers as they demonstrated their learnings from the Korean exchange program, such as 3D pen skills, Ozobot coding skills, and Augmented Reality. Moreover, the showcase was graced by the partner schools’ principals, namely Kim Myung Ji of Eyon Elementary School, and Kim Myung Jik of Songbuk Elementary School, who both had been very hands-on.
The event was hosted by the Korean Ministry of Education, the Department of Education (DepEd), Ace Institute of APEC Collaborative Education, and Learning Community Builders. It was attended by around 250 delegates from here and abroad.
