The young maiden who turned the world around

By Noralyn Dudt "My soul magnifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior. For He has looked with favor on His lowly servant." Around 2,024 years ago in the   little town of Nazareth, a young maiden received a visit from someone from afar.   An angel of the Lord appeared and   made the announcement that has now become a prayer of adoration by many in the Catholic faith,   "blessed are you the most favored of all women."   Blessed ?   Favored?   Indeed, Mary must have felt blessed and favored. One wonders why she, of all people, and not the magistrate's daughter was chosen. It would be an eye ( or mind?) opener to take a close look at Mary's song of praise, "The Magnificat"   in the book of Luke 1:46-55 and see what kind of a soul this young maiden was. "He has regarded the lowliness of His handmaid; for behold,   henceforth all generations shall call me blessed; because He who is mighty has done great things for me, and Holy

Teaching with technology: Optional or mandatory

By Liwliwa B. Suguitan Technology has the potential to significantly change how people learn. It may strengthen and deepen connections between teachers and students, help us reimagine how we learn and collaborate, close long-standing equity and accessibility gaps, and modify the learning process to accommodate the needs of all students. Thus, student engagement may be raised, lesson planning can be improved, and tailored learning can be facilitated in the classroom with the wise use of digital learning resources. Furthermore, it assists pupils in developing crucial 21 st century abilities. However, the question is: are all educators equipped with the information, abilities, and skills required for teaching with technology? Teaching online poses challenges for teachers trained primarily to work face to face. When the COVID-19 pandemic struck all over the world teachers were forced to move online to ensure students continue their education. This is not an easy transition and succes

Leaders turn the world around

By Noralyn Dudt A leader comes and unknowingly may   turn the world around—forward, leftward, rightward or backward and even upside down—depending on what the leader does and how he does it. Wherever we are today in our own little corner of the world, we are here or there because a leader decided to conquer a place, a leader decided to push for reforms   or a leader had the humility and grace to admit that a mistake has been made and decided to rectify it. Leaders come in an array of forms, shapes and   colors but   one distinguishing   hallmark   of a good leader is the ability to   turn his orbit around and   leaves the world a better place than when he had found it. Abraham Lincoln, the 16 th president of the United States treated those whom he encountered with honesty, humility, courage, justice   and grace. He came to power when the nation was in peril—a civil war was brewing—and he had the intelligence, the self-confidence and humility to know that he needed the best pe
