The FEU Cavite BED iTAMS
iTAMS stands for Integrative, Technology-empowered, Adaptive, and Multimodal Schooling learning approach.
Learners from Preschool to Grade 3 (Early Childhood) are guided through “Thematic Learning or Thematic Instruction” – a way of teaching and learning where emphasis is given to choosing a specific theme for the teaching of one or many concepts. Areas of the curriculum are connected together and integrated within a theme.
Students from Grades 4 to 10 (Elementary and Junior High School) are given either performance-based or outcomes-based projects employing “Integrative Learning” – a way of learning where students apply the concepts they learned from the lessons from different related subjects.
Teaching and learning will happen remotely for most parts of the school year. Delivery of instruction will be through CANVAS and/or via age-appropriate learning platforms for pre-K to Grade 10 learners. CANVAS is the school’s Learning Management System (LMS). To know more about CANVAS, please visit https://www.instructure.com/canvas/k-12
Curriculum has been reviewed, revised, and enriched to align with the Department of Education’s Minimum Essential Learning Competencies (MELCs) and the school’s vision, mission, and aspiration. The curriculum adapts to the different flexible learning strategies that the school will use to best serve the needs of the students.
FEU Cavite BED uses flexible learning options such as online distance learning, modular distance learning, and blended learning. Online distance learning (ODL) and/or modular distance learning (MDL) will be adopted for the first two (2) quarters. If and only when GCQ is lifted, then, blended learning will be implemented. Necessary information and orientation about health and safety protocols will be disseminated accordingly.
Online Distance Learning (ODL) for Pre-K to Grade 3 Learners
Guided pure online learning for the 1st quarter or until the official announcement of a pandemic-free condition is made
- Assigned class groups: maximum of three (3) Preschool, four (4) Grade 1, and four (4) Grade 2 learners per group
- Scheduled synchronous activity: virtual discussion/video conferencing led by the teacher to ensure interactive and engaging learning experiences and virtual discussion/video conferencing with parents or guardians for consultation and feedback
- Scheduled asynchronous session: completion of online activities, study guides, and learning modules
- Recorded learning resources: video lectures/discussions prepared by the teachers and uploaded on CANVAS or other online platforms
- Flexible assessment: based on learner’s readiness as reflected in the Mastery Learning Path

For your information:
Distance Learning takes place between the teacher and the learners who are geographically remote from each other during instruction. Three (3) types:
- Online distance learning
- Modular distance learning
- TV/Radio-based instruction
Blended Learning is a combination of face-to-face and online distance learning, modular distance learning, and/or TV/Radio-based instruction.
