  • A beautiful good morning to everyone. I am mavicpineda and I am very glad to be part of your culminating activity . I would like to extend my appreciation to University West specifically the Dept of Economics and IT for inviting me here. My role this morning is to present ideas about ICT support for teaching,learning and interculturalism and impart concrete examples from the Phils in the short 15minutes.
  • Some basic informationabt the Philippines
  • Some trivia on how (or why) DLSU was established in the Phils.
  • This is an example with discussions on PLE/PLN
  • Personal learning network or PLE is a new approach in learning. It is a philosophy, a pedagogy. It provides learners space under their own control. It provides a more holistic learning environment providing bringing together sources and context or even separately.

This virus is spreading from person-to-person, much the same way that regular seasonal influenza viruses spread. This virus was originally referred to as "swine flu" because laboratory testing showed that many of the genes in this new virus were very similar to influenza viruses that normally occur in pigs in North America.<br />Is the H1N1 virus contagious?<br />The H1N1 virus is contagious and is spreading from human to human.<br />What are the signs and symptoms of this virus in people?<br />The symptoms of this new H1N1 flu virus in people are similar to the symptoms of seasonal flu and include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. A significant number of people who have been infected with this virus have also reported diarrhea and vomiting.<br />
