The pursuit of knowledge is the primary motivation which drives us to outdo ourselves in whatever we do. However, the traditional school system in the Philippines hasn’t always been successful in cultivating this desire to learn in all students. Because of the unyielding system of grades and categorization, there is a large group of learners that have been alienated by the traditional educational school system. Many of these marginalized students hold great promise and immense talent, but are largely neglected and unrecognized. As a result, we have rebels who insist in doing things their way like salmon swimming against the current. As Eton International School’s leader Jackie Marzan-Tolentino explains both rebels and generals are leaders in their own right. Harnessing the leadership and brilliance of the rebel is not an easy task but can prove to be as rewarding as finding a gold mine in the middle of nowhere. This belief has fueled Eton’s desired to continually find innovations in bringing out the brilliance and genius in each one of their students.
Recently, Eton International School has introduced the use of 3D glasses in their math and science classes. I personally sat through a sample of their 3D science and math lessons and surprisingly, it made the Pythagoras theorem a whole lot easier to understand within the first two minutes of the lesson! These 3D animated presentations, help explain math concepts in a way that even a 10-year can comprehend. I keep telling myself that if only they had these types of lessons during my time, I would have been a faster learner and a more intelligent professional now.
Aside from advances in curriculum, Eton International School has some of the most secure learning facilities. Each classroom is monitored by closed circuit cameras to ensure that teachers and students are where they should be. No one is ever missing because the extensive security monitoring facilities will be able to account for everyone at any given time. That’s peace of mind for every parent.
Thanks to the latest 3D technology, Eton International School students will soon enjoy the best instruction and care available. Eton’s President Jackie Marzan-Tolentino is a product of Harvard University and is an educator at heart. Unlike other international schools where owners are mostly business people, Jackie looks beyond the bottomline and invests heavily on the latest technologies and continuous teacher-training strategies that will ensure the most benefit for the students.
