Using handphone during classtime

Postby pingsped » Wed Sep 19, 2012 2:43 am

Today we dropped in a kinderland childcare unannounced after visiting brainykids. After a quick tour, we proceeded to a nearby playground where the PN teachers brought the 8 kids for 'lesson.'

I did not observe any teaching.

The Filipino teacher was trying to push swings while holding phone & camera. She also supervised play. later she took some pictures. I can't tell if she checked phone or camera but her eyes were on the kids.

The Chinese teacher sat on bench, texting & making phonecalls for the entire 15-20min. she made no attempt to help at all.

Are teachers allowed to use phones during teaching hours?

This is unacceptable

I hate this thing about addicting to the phones. I remember one of the tutors (also a sch teacher) I hired, was constantly on the handphone, not sure sms, or twitting etc. I keep hearing the back & forth 'incoming mail' beeping!!

People nowadays think they have the right to use their ph at all time.

The Filipino teacher addressed the china teacher as 'Lao shi'.
