A Visit in Rocky Mountain's Chocolate Factory in Molito

Rocky Mountain's Chocolate Factory facade
It was December 24 when my sister and I went to Molito to pick up our ham and cheese platter that we ordered from Brera Delicatessen. Right beside the said store, I was delighted to see this establishment named "Rocky Mountain's Chocolate Factory," so I decided to check it out. When I went inside, I realized that they are indeed true to their name because everything in their store is all about chocolate, a true heaven for chocolate lovers.

My 6-Year-Old Had an Eye Check Up in Star Finder Optical Shop

Since it's Christmas and I already have extra budget with me, I decided to have my daughter's eyes checked. My 6-year-old is currently wearing eyeglasses which she wears to school and at home. Since it's been 2 years since she had her first set of glasses, I decided to have her eyes checked in an optical shop because she would always blink her eyes due to gadget use (sigh, yes I'm guilty of allowing her to use gadgets, but now I'm no longer allowing it). I thought her glasses needed an upgrade.

REX Team Gets Lauded at Oxford Education Conference

MANILA | During the International Conference of the International Association on Educational Assessment, a gathering of researchers and professionals in the field of education and learning technologies held in the U.K., a Filipina researcher´s presentation was cited by the conference´s keynote speaker, Dr. Arthur Graesser, as being ¨very contemporary,¨ a citation which reflects the Philippine education sector´s ongoing forays into developing 21st-century learning methods and tools for today´s young learners.

Dexter Ngo GM REX Institute for Student Excellence, Dr. Marilyn Balagtas Director of the Center for Research & Development at Philippine Normal University and REX Book Store Managing Director Danda Buhain-Garcia

The Filipina researcher lauded at the recent conference was Dr. Marilyn U. Balagtas, current Director of the Center for Research and Development in Education at the Philippine Normal University (PNU), the country´s foremost academic institution for training future educators. As a research consultant for the REX Institute for Student Excellence (RISE), the assessment arm of REX, Dr. Balagtas has worked to help REX Book Store Inc. gain insight on the latest trends and developments in learning technologies, as well as new approaches to teaching based on education research.

The paper, entitled ¨Development and Use of the 21st Century Standards-based Assessment for the K to 12 Curriculum: Towards Building a Database for Knowledge Creation,¨ was co-authored with two RISE officials, Ms. Danda Crimelda B. Garcia and Mr. Dexter C. Ngo. It was presented to a panel composed of educators and education industry assessors at the International Association in Educational Assessment (IAEA) last Sept 14, 2018.

The paper´s core idea of building an open and shared database for assessment methods, competencies, contexts, and choices,  was noted as ¨very innovative¨ by Rachel Sperring, Session Chair of the research panel. The international conference was hosted by the Oxford University Center for Educational Assessment, with participants coming in from all over the globe.

The recognition of Dr. Balagtas´ pioneering research work on the education sector at both the local and international levels has helped REX refine its development of learning solutions for the Filipino learner. As an organization at the forefront of serving and transforming the education sector towards achieving competency in meeting the demands of the 21st century, REX shares the same commitment to excellence and forward-thinking passion.
