From August 7th to 18th, 2023, students of our university's College of Education conducted educational volunteer work in cooperation with Antique University in the Philippines. The program was joined by 8 students and 3 other international students from the Philippines.
Since 2010, overseas educational services have been conducted to foster global capabilities. It almost stopped during the COVID-19, but was maintained using an online system.
Under the name "DU Avengers", they visited four cooperative elementary schools at Antique University. They organized classes on robots and climate crisis.
Students were mainly in grades 5-6. The robot class conducted various activities such as rock-paper-scissors and map-making using "Ojo Bot," and the response was enthusiastic.
Climate classes focused on students' perception of the seriousness of climate change, such as recent global warming. Through mini-games such as speed games and flip-flops, students identified past and present climate changes.
In addition, the board game "Net Zero Card Game" has led to an understanding of the close relationship between carbon and climate change. It was an opportunity to think about the ways to reduce carbon emissions.
Despite many unexpected situations, overseas educational service continues in various ways. We look forward to the cooperative relationship and interaction between the two universities in the future.
