These days, as the COVID-19 crisis continues to rage across the world, countries like the Philippines choose to implement online classes and blended learning methods to keep everyone safe. After all, it is risky for kids to be outside their homes and spending time with many people on their way to school as well as inside their classrooms.
But this meant that teachers have to work much harder to create the learning modules, print these out for the parents to pick up, and do lots of other tasks, including checking the learners’ returned materials.
While it is their job to prepare learning materials, creating the modules is an added burden to the teachers. That’s the reason why many teachers feel bad whenever there are issues concerning module errors that pop out on social media.
Recently, one student angered teachers and netizens after burning his modules and telling his viewers to send the ashes to their teachers!
In the video, this guy with TikTok handle @marjoguilaran shows his modules to the viewers. He tells them that if they want to finish their modules as quickly as possible, they should burn them! Then, they should just give the ashes to their teachers afterwards! Tsk. Tsk.
“Tips para matapos na yung module mo: sunugin mo! Tapos ibigay mo yung abo sa teacher mo…” he said, even dancing as he did it!
While this might be a joke, the student earned the ire of everyone on the internet. What he did is an insult to the efforts of all teachers who are trying their best to do their jobs and make sure that the students will learn something despite the crisis we are all facing.
“Is this just for fame????? Respect teachers behind that modules. Know their real experiences…” a netizen angrily commented.
“Really?? Is that the right thing to do?? Sana namn po kinoconseder natin iyong mga EFFORTS ng mga Teachers. Puyat, pagod, effort po ang puhunan nila dyan pati na rin kanilang kaligtasan. Kung ayaw nyong sagutan pwede namn na di na kayu kumuha diba atleast nakatipid pa sila ng ink at coupon. Kung sa tingin mo cool kana dyan, hindi po, nakakainis ka, bastos, at walang modo,” another wrote.

Burning his learning modules. 😤Naalala ko lang kasi ‘yong hirap ng mga teacher sa pag-xerox at pag-sort niyan. Tapos susunugin lang. 😞Astig tingin niya sa sarili niya. Real or not nakakawala pa rin ng respeto.#DepEdPhilippines
