SHS Accountancy, Business, and Management Students Craft Sustainable Solutions for the Community


SHS Accountancy, Business, and Management Students Craft Sustainable Solutions for the Community

iACADEMY’s Project-Based Learning Expo was held last December 11 to 15, 2017 where our Senior High School students were able to showcase innovative and sustainable solutions through creative thinking.

GRADE 11

 The Grade 11 SHS Accountancy, Business and Management students stand up for financial literacy as the means to empower every Filipino to shape the country's economy. They were able to contribute new and innovative ideas on improving Filipinos' financial know-how through a knowledge-expanding seminar.

Can you tell us something about your PBL entry? What was the inspiration behind it?

Our PBL entry is a savings program in a form of a routine. It has 5 steps which is summarized into the acronym "Monefy" which stands for Motivate, Organize, Necessitate, Eye and Fund Your future). Our inspiration for the project was ourselves. My group and I were having trouble saving from our own allowances. We wanted to make a savings program that we, and eventually others, can use to effectively save money.

 

What do you like most about PBL? What were the challenges you faced while working on the project?

The best part about the project is the process of making the collaterals we need for the seminar as well as meeting with our group mates. We got to show our creative side throughout the whole process and we also had fun interacting with the rest of our group. We enjoyed making our brochures, videos and other props together as team. One of the challenges we faced was overcoming our procrastination habits. We had to pull through together in making our project a successful one.

 

GRADE 12

As future movers and shakers of our society, our iACADEMY SHS Game Changers are no exception to being involved in contributing to global goals. Videos. Apps. Games. Websites. Print Media. Innovative Products. Start-Ups. Reinventing the Garment Industry. Animation and Stories. With a driving question “How can my specialized skills contribute to the global goals for sustainable development?” our Grade 12 students aim to inspire the world into action. Through the Project-Based Learning, they were able to prove that they are up to the challenge of answering the global appeal for Transformative Solutions for Sustainable Development.

  


Grade 12 Best PBL for Accountancy, Business, and Management: “Drop Up”

Can you tell us something about your PBL entry? What was the inspiration behind it?

Drop Up is actually rooted from the Sustainable Development Goals. We were asked to study them and form a study which would help solve them. Choosing SDG no. 1, “End Poverty”, was definitely out of compassion, and having observed and noticed existence of poverty. To be honest, at first we were skeptical if our project could really make a difference, but when we had a photographer go around Manila to interview some people and document their lives, had some staff from iACADEMY share their stories, and when we heard our Economics teacher say that the best way to help people is to give them jobs, we knew we just had to push through. Of course the project itself was also thanks to the insights of our great advisers, Sir Paulo Lozano and Sir Jake Aragon. Among all the sustainable development goals, ending poverty was the most striking to us. Perhaps because it has been a problem of the world for so long, especially in the Philippines. We knew immediately knew that we wanted to help in even a little way to eradicate poverty and we think Drop Up will be a great way to help solve this problem.

 What do you like most about PBL? What were the challenges you faced while working on the project?

What we like most about PBL is how it actually allows us to produce something that would last; something that we could be proud of. PBL is not just paperwork, it's about the ideas and the actions done to transform those ideas into reality. There were a lot of challenges such as juggling PBL with other important schoolwork, self-doubts, time constraints and limited resources. It's a good thing the team knows how to understand each other and have fun despite the hardships we were facing. We reached a point where we had to change our whole research study and PBL output in less than a month before the expo. Originally our plan was an advocacy, but we had to opt for a project more feasible but is still in line with our goal, which is ending poverty.

How do you think PBL helps you in reaching your full potential?

Through PBL our team was able to develop skills we always thought we were incapable of. Most of all, not only did it allow us to practice concepts in marketing, economics, business math, or other subjects, but it also developed our leadership skills and how we work as a team.
