Erliza Matacot: My Journey as a Teacher With Microsoft and Project-Based Learning

By Erliza Matacot Expert Educator Columnist, Philippines Change is constant. According to Mahatma Gandhi, “We must be the change we want to see in this world.” As a teacher, I know that I can make a difference in bringing my 21st century students in the right path of embracing the technology. During the first year of my teaching in a private school, I noticed how dedicated I was as a teacher. I directed musical plays, I trained my students in different school level competitions, and also managed our campus journalism. After five years of serving in a private school, I needed to accept the new challenge for me as a teacher… and that is to serve public school students.
