Expecting the likely addition of online writing as a group category in the schools press conferences, the Office of Media and ICT conducted a training-workshop on October 5-7 at the Teachers’ Hall, DepED Cabanatuan City Division Office.
Student-journalists and school paper advisers from both public and private elementary and secondary schools in the division of Cabanatuan City attended the training.
Basic website design and construction using a free drag-and-drop webpage editor Weebly was taught to the student -participants assigned by their respective teams as web designer.
“The output website requires the barebones essentials only,” Glenn L Agustin, Education Program Supervisor for Media and ICT, said during the orientation in the opening program.
“You have to put up a fully-functioning website with sections or pages for news, features, editorials and sports news plus basic information on your virtual publication and on those who work on it, much like an editorial box or masthead of a school paper hard copy,” he added.
Agustin, who handled the training-workshop in web designing, discussed the difference of online writing from desktop publishing and workflow among team members.
He also discussed at length the possible basic guidelines which would govern online writing once it officially becomes a category in schools press conferences.
Lecture and workshop refreshers were also given to the rest of the team members assigned as the article writers to fill the required sections of the output website, namely, news, features, opinion pieces and sports stories.
Ever M. Samson, school paper adviser of San Josef National High School and member of DepED Cabanatuan Media Bureau, handled the training workshops in news writing and sports news writing.
Feature and editorial writing was handled by Dr. Regidor G. Gaboy, a faculty member of Central Luzon State University and an awardee of the 2001 Most Outstanding School Paper Adviser of Region III.
The top three outputs in the secondary level were from Wesleyan University-Philippines (thewesleyanian) and Nueva Ecija University of Science and Technology (thecore-neust and neust-tagalog.)
In the elementary level, the top three outputs were from Wesleyan University-Philippines (wupthegraders), Cabanatuan East Central School (thececstorchonline) and College of the Immaculate Conception (cic-littlevoice).
The training team served as the panel of evaluators of the output websites.
