Integrating Local Knowledge in the Classroom

  1. 1. INTEGRATING LOCAL KNOWLEDGE IN EDUCATION by Noel R. Buensuceso
  2. 2. Outline of Presentation Introduction Framework: SWOT Strategy Tool Implementation Results Conclusion and Recommendations
  3. 3. Why is Local Knowledge or Indigenous Knowledge important ? ―Indigenous knowledge is used at the local level by communities as the basis for decisions pertaining to food security, human and animal health, education, natural resources management, and other vital activities. IK is a key element of the social capital of the poor and constitutes their main asset in their efforts to gain control of their own lives. For these reasons, the potential contribution of IK to locally managed, sustainable and cost-effective survival strategies should be promoted in the development process.‖ ( Gorjestani, 2000) Indigenous knowledge is not confined to indigenous peoples alone—all communities have developed their own body of knowledge over generations. ( Ibid )

  30. 30. USE GOVERNMENT WEBSITES: BANGKO SENTRAL NG PILIPINAS Lesson: Money and Barter Pre-Hispanic Era Trade among the early Filipinos and with traders from the neighboring islands was conducted through barter. The inconvenience of barter later led to the use of some objects as medium of exchange. Gold, which was plentiful in many parts of the islands, invariably found its way into these objects that included the piloncitos, small bead-liked gold bits considered by the local numismatists as the earliest coin of the ancient Filipinos, and gold barter rings.
