Background of the Study

 Texting has become an integral part of our lives; it has developed very rapidly throughout the world.

Initial growth of text messaging starts with customers in 1995 sending an average 0.4 messages per GSM (Global System for mobile communications) per customer per month. (Wikipedia, 2009)

Today, text messaging is the most widely used mobile data service, with 35% of all mobile phones users worldwide or 4.2 million to 7.3 million phone subscribers at the end of 2003 being active users of SMS.

The largest average usage of the service by mobile phone subscribers is the Philippines with an average of 15 texts per day by subscribers. (Wikipedia, 2009)

 Text messaging is most often used between private mobile users as a substitute for voice calls situations. Popularity has grown to a sufficient extent that the term texting has enticed the people. It is a very powerful tool in the Philippines where the average user sends 10-12 text messages a day. The Philippines ends on the average 400 million test messages per day or approximately 142 billion text messages sent a year.

At the end of 2007, four of the top mobile service providers in the country stated that there are 42.78 million mobile subscribers in the Philippines; thus Philippines has become the “texting capital of the world”.

The expanding availability of text messaging has raised questions about the effect of texting on standard literacy. Many have reported unintentional intrusions of abbreviations used in texting called “textisms”- is inappropriate contexts. (Wood. Et al., 2009)

This study aims to determine whether the texting habits of the first year high school students of Aldersgate Science High School should be a concern as it significantly demeaning their spelling proficiency.

ACGS levels up

The Aldesrgate College Graduate School dean, faculty members and students attended the two-day Philippine Association of Graduate Educators (PAGE) Regional Assembly Cum Workshop enthemed “Fostering Quality Research in Graduate Education” at the Center for Professional Development, University of La Salette, Santiago City, last October 28-29.

The ACGS delegation headed by Dr. Elizabeth R. Pascual, Dean and Treasurer of PAGE Region 02 for CY 2010-2011, composed of faculty members: Dr. Romeo Yarcia Jr., Jonathan Daton Palitayan, Debora B. Sampaga, Rizalyn L. Esquivel, Jenifer Raymond R. Tallungan; and graduate students.

Dr. Evelyn L. Pascua, CESO III, Director IV, Commission on Higher Education R02, urged the participants to foster quality and excellence as a day-to-day commitment, in her keynote speech during the opening program.

“If there’s quality, there’s satisfaction whose locus should be the student staisfaction. In this way, graduate education can take the lead role in enhancing quality towards global competetiveness.”  Pascua further explained.

The first day was capped by the lectures delivered by Dr. Ramil S. Rodriguez, NVSU, and DR. Nenita Capili, CSU-Lallo, on Quantitative and Qualitative Researches followed by the discussion of the National Higher Education Research Agenda by Dr. Nestor Calvan, ES II, and workshop mechanics by Dr. Antonio P. Pascual, CEPS.

The CHED Director briefly talked on choosing and narrowing down of topics as well as the writing of titles following requisites for quality researches that should cover priority areas like program or curricular studies, policy-oriented studies, accreditation, quality assurance mechanisms, among others.

On the second day, Dr. Dante Aquino, Director CHED of the Zonal Research Center addressed the yearning of the participants on how to come up with manuscripts deserving of publication not only in local research jornals but also in national and international circulations, as he lectured on Refereeing Journals.

Outputs of the workshop were presented for criritiquing by a panel composed of reasearch experts and PAGE regional officers: Dr. Jack Cabalonga, Dr. Rustico Santos, Dr. Gloria Yco, Dr. Pascual and Dr. Calvan.

Before the assembly closed, Tallungan of the AC delegation delivered his impressions and the synthesis of the activities.#

Plant a Tree: A Means of Caring for Our Body

David, in his psalm, exclaimed that God cares for man so much that He made him ruler over His creation.  Hence, just as man was created master of his body, his actions and life so was man created master of his environment.  It is of no wonder that the great German Philosopher Karl Marx could say with authority, “Nature is man’s body.”

The ACGS students and faculty pose at the foot of Bangan Hill as they prepare to ascend to the tree planting site.

With this same view in mind, the Aldersgate College Graduate School students and faculty through the Aldersgate College Graduate School Extension (AC-GraSE) Project carried out a tree-planting activity at Bangan Hill, lower Magsaysay, Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya on November 6, 2010.

Bangan Hill has been declared a national park, called as the Bangan Hill National Park, on March 29, 1995 through REPUBLIC ACT NO. 7954.   The park is fifty meters wide on both sides along the Bangan Hill Road in the municipality of Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya, and has an aggregate area of 130,106.43 square meters.

Mr. Daton Jonathan B, Palitayan Jr., AC-GraSE Project Coordinator and Associate Professor of the ACGS, led 36 GS students in planting 150 Mahogany seedlings in the aforementioned site.

Engr. Leonardo Cabauatan, a first year MPA student, coordinated the activity with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources office which provided the seedlings that were planted.

Antonio Aggid, a father of three and one of the caretakers of Bangan Hill National Park, accompanied the ACGS faculty and students to the tree planting site.

Mr. Antonio Aggid, at the forefront, escorted the ACGS faculty and students to the tree planting site.

The ACGS faculty and students at work!

Farewell Villa Adriano, Hello Bonifacio!

Aldersgate College: Establishing a Secure and Stable Community

Through the Pangkalusugan- Pangkabuhayan Outreach Program Bidding Villa Adriano Adieu After five momentous years of helping attain community needs, and address livelihood and health care concerns of the people of Villa Adriano (Busilac, Nueva Vizcaya), Aldersgate College is now sending off this partner-barangay which has slowly evolved into a self -sustained, independent and self -reliant community through the VAPPOP -Villa Adriano Pangkalusugan Pangkabuhayan Outreach Program. This program as the brainchild of Aldersgate College served as an awakening for a remarkable improvement in social relations, community involvement and services as well as the struggle of the people of the barangay for educational reformation. In turn, the trust of Villa Adriano people to AC has put up a strong bond between the college and its adopted community that enabled the school to set, implement, and achieve goals which truly have brought forth sustainable development and enthusiasm of the people to have meaningful lives.

Welcome Barangay Bonifacio!

Aldersgate College which continually sets its aspirations and high hopes of reaching out to other communities that pose enormous needs for community development, has conducted a probe of the next community to be adopted and developed. The School of Medical Sciences known for its advocacies in health and society building will extend its mission program this year to its new partner community. The following are the pre-set categories used as bases in choosing a partner community.

1. The community should have at least a minimum of 50 family heads as residents.

2. The community is considered underdeveloped as to technology and underserved as to various services and programs of the government.

3. The community possesses natural and social resources which can be utilized to enhance a healthy and progressive life.

4. The community offers opportunities for students’ effective learning experiences in their development and preparation to become competent health professionals.

5. The community residents should be able to extend their cooperation for active involvement in the achievement of implemented programs for the welfare of everybody.

6. Community leaders should be able to demonstrate effective leadership roles for sustainability of programs implemented for the interest of the public.

An ocular survey of one of the candidate communities was done at Barangay Bonifacio, Quezon Nueva Vizcaya after the courtesy call on February 4, 2009, at the municipal hall of Quezon. It was participated by the new set of student officers and volunteers who were organized to lead the school’s extension program. Consequentially, the following characteristics of Brgy. Bonifacio, Quezon, Nueva Vizcaya, were unveiled to make them qualify as the next beneficiary of the school’s extension program:

1. Population: Brgy. Bonifacio Quezon has 150 households with a total population of 612 (Source: Barangay Nutrition Scholar Form. 1A of 2006.)

2. Electricity: Only one sitio out of 8 has electricity provided by NUVELCO thus majority of the households depend on gas and kerosene lamps for their lighting needs.

3. Transportation: The road going to the 7 other sitios, which do not have electricity, is poorly developed. The place can only be reached by hiking, carabao-back riding or riding a sled pulled by a carabao. During rainy seasons, the roads are muddy making it inaccessible to the public.

4. Agriculture: Corn, one of the major crops in Bonifacio, is planted twice a year. It has yield ranging from 35 to 55 cavans per hectare. Another crop is rice, planted twice a year yielding an average of 70 to 76 cavans per hectare.

5. Land Area: Brgy. Bonifacio has an approximate total land area of 1,950 hectares. 72% or 1,400 hectares are used mainly for agricultural purposes, while 28% or 550 hectares are open spaces which account for unfilled land. Land proportion is complimentary for profit depending on the communication with the land owners of the place.

6. Community Thrusts:

6.1. The barangay people aiming at boosting up their health and economic status proffered their neighborhood for partnership to Aldersgate College through the School of Medical Sciences as the school’s frontliner in quality nursing practice highlighting the following important points: *the goal which is promotion and preservation of health of the population; and *the enhancement of students’ acquired knowledge, skills and positive attitudes in providing health care services to become competent health care professionals in the future

6.2. Willingness and acceptance of every opportunity for learning and programs geared to improve their lifestyle were demonstrated by the community residents.

6.3. The residents of the area through the Barangay officials led by Brgy. Captain Pepito Ballagan made their way beyond cynicism in expressing their readiness in continuing and maintaining the program’s activities and plans. The School of Medical Sciences, the student volunteers, together with the help and assistance of the instructors in-charge and advisers are still in the process of formulating specific programs for the adopted community. Family health survey forms were already prepared and are now available. As soon as the team has completed gathering, compiling and interpreting data from the ongoing family health assessment survey in the community, formal programs will be made that will address the needs of the next partner community.#

SCHOOL OF MEDICAL SCIENCES

Aldersgate College in its continued venture as a Learning Center for Excellence within the heart of Nueva Vizcaya now opens its doors to students for the School Year 2010-2011 offering varied programs that would prepare and hone any graduates who are globally competitive and comparable to other graduates coming from prestigious colleges and universities in the country.
The School of Medical Sciences offering Health Allied Programs continuously enhances its curricular programs to equip  students with the Knowledge, Skills, and Attitudes as a foundation for excellent performance, to be at par with other professionals in various fields of industry.
To achieve all of these with success the School of Medical Sciences not only prepares its students in the academic aspect of learning but also provides opportunities for every student to apply their theoretical knowledge, skills and attitudes thru practice in the community; hence, a Community Extension and Outreach Program was conceived and established  in a remote Barangay (Brgy. Bonifacio), in  Quezon, Nueva Vizcaya.

SAR-Ex (Student Action Response for Excellence)
The SMS-Community Extension and Outreach Program is now on its Second Year of existence and for this School Year 2010-2011, this is also a program parallel to the implementation of the SAR-ex Project introduced by the Commission on Higher Education beginning this School Year.
On the first week of July, 2010, several volunteer students of the School of Medical Sciences together with some Faculty Members visited Brgy. Bonifacio, Quezon, Solano, Nueva Vizcaya (the adopted community for the Community Extension and Outreach Program), made the necessary coordination with the Barangay Council Officials and presented the Department’s plan to continue the previously implemented programs the previous year. The Barangay Council Officials and the community were very thankful and appreciative for the continuity of the programs and gave the assurance for a committed and sincere active involvement of the whole Barangay.
On that same week, ocular visits to the different Puroks and Sitios were done; with the necessary assessment purposely to identify prevailing needs and problems of the community and also to evaluate the status of previously implemented programs.
Since the month of July as to Department of Health implemented Programs, is being observed in several agencies (government and private) as NUTRITION MONTH, the SMS coordinated with the Barangay Elementary Schools’ Officials and so with the Baranggy Council Officials on the different activities that will be done in observance of the NUTRITION PROGRAM for the month.
The following activities for the NUTRITION PROGRAM CELEBRATION were implemented:

JULY 15, 2010 Coordination with all Elementary Schools’ Officials in the Barangay for scheduled activities
JULY 16, 2010 Operation: Timbang for all Elementary School pupils (Grade I – VI) in Centro , Barangay Bonifacio
JULY 22, 2010 Operation: Timbang for all Grade I-VI pupils in Sitio Tutong, Bgry.Bonifacio, Quezon
JULY 23, 2010 Operation: Timbang for all Grade I-IV pupils in Sitio Tawi-tawi, Bgry. Bonifacio, Quezon
JULY 30, 2010 Culminating Program of the NUTRITION MONTH Celebration in Barangay Bonifacio, Quezon with the collaborative participation of Philippine Nurses’ Association – Nueva Vizcaya Chapter

AUGUST 06, 2010 Feeding Program at the Primary School in Sitio Tawi-tawi, Brgy. Bonifacio, Quezon

JULY 30, 2010 was the day for the Culminating Program of the NUTRITION MONTH CELEBRATION held at the Barangay Hall of the Community. The one-day activities well participated by the people of the community, particularly the elementary school pupils.

Some of the highlights of the Program were the Poster Making and Slogan Making Contest which was participated by all levels of the Elementary School Pupils of the Barangay and the Literary-Musical Presentations of the children from the Preparatory level to the Elementary level. The winners in the different categories were filled with joy and the radiant smiles and laughter from them made the organizers more inspired and challenged to continue and move on with the committed task given to them.

What inspires the group most is the verse from the Bible which states… “For I can do all things with CHRIST who strengtheneth me”, Philippians 4:13

The Sinanama-AC Learning Center Claudia Esquivel Campus Baresbes, Quezon, Nueva Vizcaya (An Extension Program of the College of Arts, Sciences and Education)

BACKGROUND:

In November , 1998, as the classes resumed for the second semester, a team composed of the students in Anthropology and Sociology and their advisers conducted a baseline survey of Baresbes, Quezon, Nueva Vizcaya. This baranggay which is approximately 8 km away from Aldersgate College is inhabited mostly by Ilocanos. Generally, the livelihood of the people is farming. The houses of the residents are situated near their farms, which are far from the center of the barangay where the school building would be put up.
Community extension started shortly after the baseline survey. The advisers with the students were able to identify potential leaders in the community. Community visitations were done regularly to follow up the progress of the immersion program. There were constant formal and informal dialogues with the community people and leaders.
The community immersion and the formal presentation of the thrusts and programs of the ACSAMS followed after the numerous dialogues with the people of the community.
Community officers who would work with the ACSAMS were elected and the name of the organization as SINANAMAC was formed from the names of the 2  puroks of Baresbes namely: Sinamar and Namnma (Sinanama) and Aldersgate College (AC) as implementers.
The construction of the learning center materialized in April and May, 1999. The building made of light materials like cogon and buho was put up in a lot donated by Mrs. Claudia Esquivel. It was put up through the “bayanihan” spirit of the people who personally uprooted the cogon grasses from the mountain ranges for the roof and “buho” for the  walls.
In preparation to the tasks, the adviser, Pastor Rebecca Divad,  conducted a kindergarten curriculum workshop with her Anthropology class, to teach alternately with the supervision of the coordinator. One of them was challenged as leader. The formal class sessions started on the second week of June and since has became a continuing venture of commitment and dedication for community service.
GOALS AND OBJECTIVES:
The CASE extension program with its primary aim of bringing the school to the community will address the following objectives:
1.    Establish early childhood development as a basic service for children ages 3-6 in the community.
2.    Improve the quality and efficiency of primary education.
3.    Eradicate illiteracy.
4.    Enhance the role of women in ensuring community and household food security.
RATIONALE:
If Education is not available to a group of people, the group has less chance of taking advantage of the benefits of that society. Success in educational activities is important, as children learn skills and capabilities for self confidence and self reliance in a democratic country.
Education is the foundation of all developments and the biggest hopes for the country. As Anderson claims that society requires 40% literacy rate to enable it to enter the “take off” stage, which means that literacy is a viable key in societal modernization.
The College of Arts, Sciences and Education believes that this outreach program in the the Sinanama-AC Learning Center Claudia Esquivel Campus at Baresbes Quezon shall be able to contribute in the upliftment of the literacy rate of the target community and be able to achieve the institutional goals of ACADEMIC EXELLENCE, SOCIAL RELEVANCE and SPIRITUAL NURTURE of Aldersgate College.
Although Baresbes is considered as one of the productive and progressive barangays of Quezon, most of the children aged 3-6 cannot avail of preschool education because the educational establishments are located  at the center of the community, and the  children are still physically incapable of walking the long distance to the daycare centers.  The Sinanama-AC Learning Center was put up in a location which is accessible to most of the barangay residents.
The Sinanama-AC Learning Center also provides opportunity for BEED and BSED students to enhance their acquired knowledge and put theory into practice as they merge themselves in the community particularly with the children.
