The Reading Association of the Philippines (RAP) is pleased to announce its Midyear Demofest 2013 to be held in Cagayan De Oro City on September 12-14, 2013. This demonstration festival is on the theme Culture, Literacy, and Technology: From Local to Global Classrooms. Dr. William Teale, a literacy expert from the International Reading Association (IRA), is this year’s featured speaker. Other speakers are literacy, curriculum, culture/language, and educational technology experts, professors, classroom teachers, researchers, and literacy advocates.
To enrich the experience of participants in this demofest, the RAP enjoins enthusiasts, researchers, academics, practitioners, and teachers of literacy education (in the mother tongue, Filipino, and/or English) to submit proposals for demonstration lessons. Through this, the RAP aims to bring together professionals and advocates from various parts of the country to share their best practices on literacy education in relation to the following strands:
- Language, Literature, and Culture in Literacy Instruction;
- Strategies in Technology-Assisted/Mediated Literacy Teaching; and
- Using Literature and Technology in Remediating Literacy Difficulties
Proponents of accepted proposals must confirm their attendance and officially register to the RAP Midyear Demofest in order to be part of the actual conference program. Presenters will not pay any registration fee. However, they are responsible for their own transportation and accommodation. Click here for the submission guidelines.
